When I was growing up, my parents always made mashed potatoes from flakes.... ugh! It was such a treat to go to our grandparents house on holidays. Grandpa made his potatoes by hand with his special recipe that no one else has been able to match. I made it a point to help him get the potatoes ready for big dinners until I learned his recipe by heart. A few years ago, I volunteered to make them for my in-laws' Thanksgiving party. Word spread... and now I'm the designated potato maker for EVERY function on BOTH sides of the family. It's okay though... it's an honor... and I can't get enough of them myself!
There are several other black bean recipes here. This one is mine and like one contributor said, "feel free to add what you like". As I was "inventing" this there were several variations I already came up with (my husband said to leave it alone, it was great like it was) so I will leave that to y'all. The stew meat has to be cooked just to medium at first, let it still be a little pink; otherwise it turns out tough and do cut it into smaller pieces. The wheat tortillas add a new flavor and of course are better for us. Hope you enjoy these as much as we did. Angelcook
No need for take-out with this recipe! This one is for all of you that don't like to be in the kitchen but want a delicious home cooked meal with an Asian flair. It truly is so easy, fast and delicious. Serve with rice or noodles or you could cut up the chicken into bite sized pieces and serve as an appetizer. Enjoy!
"Ready, Set, Cook! Contest Entry." Bacon lattice and cheese topped flaky biscuits filled with fresh chopped tomatoes and onions in a seasoned cream cheese and mayonnaise mixture. This recipe is not only eye appealing but also adds a lot of flavor to your taste buds!
This is a fabulous recipe for oven fried tilapia slightly adapted from Paul Prudhomme's wonderful "Fork In The Road" lower fat cookbook. I served this for dinner with family and it got rave reviews. Even my picky 5 year old eater enjoyed it. The ingredient list here is long, but is mostly spices. Please don't be put off, this is wonderful stuff and once you get the spice mixture combined, quite easy to make.
Why compromise the banana flavor? My banana bread is moist and delicious with loads of banana flavor! Ultimate comfort food, and it's WONDERFUL TOASTED!! (Make sure to use bananas with a lot of black on them for the best flavor! The blacker the bananas, the stronger the banana flavor of the bread.)
Per Google.com, the #1 recipe for Beer Bread in the world! There are a few recipes for beer bread out there, but none as simple (and tasty!) as this one. You can even mix it in the baking pan for easy cleanup. This is sensational when served with soups or just as a snack, but don't expect it to be around very long when your family gets a taste of it! Be sure to use a sheet pan on the shelf below the pan to catch any excess butter that may drip during cooking.
This is a French Toast recipe that my family has been enjoying for quite some time. It's a fun recipe to be enjoyed especially on a weekend morn. It's considered a special treat when I make these because they are delicious!
I use chili sauce or salsa instead of ketchup to give a nice contrast to the sweetness of the brown sugar. A lighter version can be made using Splenda brown sugar blend, skim milk, and Egg Beaters. Got this one from the AllRecipes website. It's one of their most popular recipes.
