It was really hot last weekend here in TX, and I wanted something cool to make. My friend had sent this to me a while back and I decided to make it...boy am I glad! It was delicious!! Very cool and creamy and oh so easy! I used strawberry Jell-o and it turned out a really pretty pink! I can't wait to try lemon Jello-and maybe strawberry-banana Jell-o and wonder what orange Jell-o would be like? Cook time is refrigeration time.
This is my husband's grandmother's recipe that is cherished by the family. They are the best cookie that melts in your mouth. They don't have the normal peanut butter fork crossing...but more of a crackled sugar type cookie... My husband comes from a huge family - and these are one of the cherished recipes!!
Another signature dish. Very tasty, best wneh served cold. This recipe comes from elboricua.com. There are different recipes. I haven't tried this one in specific so if you have a better one, let me know!
While it takes slightly longer to prepare this recipe than a box mix, the resulting moist, delicious cake makes it VERY worth the little extra time. I consider this 'perfect' chocolate cake. This cake is excellent with both with Recipe #261024 and Recipe #208959 (the dark flavor version). (I use Recipe #95416 when I'm decorating the cake.) I love how the leftovers are still moist even a day or two later. (I store my loosely covered with plastic wrap.)
My father adores this cake with Recipe #261024 on it. For his birthday, Father's Day etc. I make him cupcakes with the icing on them and individually wrap them. He keeps them in his freezer for when he wants "a piece of cake". He claims they are as good as when they are fresh.
(Even though it isn't where I got the recipe from so I can't vouch for it, reviewers have said it is the recipe on the Hershey's cocoa can. I would recommend using their Special Dark Cocoa if possible.)
Guava and cheese (Guyaba con Queso) is a typical combination for Cubans. It is delicious! They have Guava Skins that are made in syrup and then combined with cream cheese and "Cuban" crackers - oh my!!! This is an acquired taste and one that is NOT diet friendly!! This was given to me by a woman who works in the activities dept and is trying to start her own dessert business. Didn't include chilling time of about 3 hours up to overnight.
Well, after looking for this recipe on here and not having any luck, I decided to find it and post it. In my opinion, this is the best pumpkin pie. Make your own graham cracker crust or buy an already prepared one.
