This dirty rice recipe came from my mom in 1996, and I don't have any idea where she got it. It can be adjusted for your tastes -- more or less of the "7 seasonings" to make it hotter. I usually make it and put it in stuffed peppers, but it could be a stand alone dish or side. We love it!
Yet another recipe from my mother-in-law, who is probably the best cook that I personally know. This is, hands down, our favourite way to eat salmon in our house - and we eat a lot of it! The spice portion can be doubled and stored for later - I typically double or triple the recipe and store it in an airtight jar so that it is available whenever I want it.
Wonderful, smooth dressing. My friends either have me give them some out of my batch or ask for the recipe. This recipe makes about 1 gallon of dressing. We never waste a bit. My favorite is a chunky garden salad, blue cheese and topped with this sweet and tangy homemade dressing. I received this recipe from my grandmother.
This came from a dear Japanese friend of mine who was also my daughter's piano teacher when we lived in Japan. A lot of times I will make this recipe with leftover meat. :)
Do not let the oyster sauce scare you. :) It can be found in the Asian part of most grocery stores.
I found this recipe years ago in a newspaper. It's a great substitute for the real thing. In fact, I prefer it, because it's sweeter. This is great with scones and a little jam or preserves on top. Perfect for afternoon teas or brunches.
This is a very old recipe that I originally got off of the side of a box of Kraft Macaroni and Cheese more than 25 years ago. I make this when I tire of plain tuna macaroni and want all the "junk" back in it! LOL! When you get bored, too, this is a nice change of pace! Very easy to make. (*Since Kraft has changed their formula so much over the years, I now use Velveeta Shells and Cheese, or make homemade macaroni and cheese using the velveeta recipe.) So whatever you prefer is what you should use. HTH! :)
The recipe for Gentleman's Relish has remained a secret since it was first invented by John Osborn in 1828 and no doubt some, whose taste buds recoil at this intensely salty blend of anchovies, butter, herbs and spices are happy for it to remain secret. However, it is wonderful spread on hot toast and added to scrambled eggs.....as well as adding a "kick" to savoury sauces and sandwiches! It is the essential ingredient for Scotch Woodcock - a Victorian snack served at the end of a meal! (For those who are interested, I have posted the recipe on Zaar!) This is my interpretation of this famous English relish.
These calzones aren't your typical calzone as they don't have any marinara. They are a recipe from my mother-in-law that she made DH as a kid. I love them and they always make enough to freeze and reheat later! Enjoy!
This recipe is enjoyed by many of the south pacific islands including Hawaii. I originally got this from a lady from the Philippines, her DH was going to graduate school with my DH. My children love this, they call them "egg rolls". Sometimes I add carrots, or some other sauces. added on 11/17- the serving size is for 2 lumpias each. One package of eggroll wrappers(20) should be about right for the amount of ingredients listed.
