Courtesy of the Hershey's Kitchen, with a couple of my personal additions. Don't be scared by the cocoa powder! It adds a nice richness to the sandwiches - but it doesn't make them taste like chocolate :) Use the smaller amount of chili powder for less spicy "joes" :)
This came from a Weight Watchers cookbook. Very tasty, with a nice "kick" to it. I'm sure it could easily be done on the stovetop, just cook until the beef is fall-apart tender. I sometimes have a difficult time finding the Mexican tomatoes so have also used diced ones with green chiles (and added more garlic). Serve with sour cream and a nice crusty bread (or flour tortillas). A 1 cup serving is 3 WW points. Update 2/12/2010: This won 2nd place (a fraction of a point away from 1st) today at a chili cook-off at work :)
We had these yummy potatoes for Easter after hearing the recipe on the radio. It comes from Nigella's book "Feast: Food to Celebrate Life". We were all afraid they would be overpowering because the whole house smelled like garlic, but they were wonderful - crispy and brown with a lovely roasted garlic flavor!
These are some of my favorite sweets. Easy and sooooo good! I found the recipe in a church cookbook and made a couple adjustments after making it. The original recipe called for chow mein noodles but I prefer the rice noodles. Yield is an estimate as it depends on how big you scoop them :) Update: Dec 2011 - I made these today and reduced the peanut butter by 2 Tbsp and it worked well. I have updated the ingredient amount to reflect the change.
I copied this recipe from a vegetarian cookbook many years ago and I just came across it again today. It is such a wonderful salad - I love spinach and cheese tortellini but the dressing is what really makes it stand out.
I found this recipe while browsing through my Betty Crocker cookbook and thought it sounded tasty. I love that you don't have to pre-cook the pasta. The original recipe called for curry powder but I also like it with chili powder for something totally different (if using chili powder, you will want to double the amount). Also a good use for that leftover holiday turkey!
From a British cookbook of all chocolate recipes. Yum! The original recipe called for half semi-sweet and half milk chocolate. I don't usually keep milk chocolate on hand so use all semi-sweet and I don't think I'll ever try them with milk chocolate - the richness of the semi-sweet is so good. A mixture of chocolate chunks and chips is a nice variation instead of just chips.
My mom had this recipe hand written on an old recipe card. It is so tasty and can be fairly low in fat if you use low fat/fat free milk, Cool Whip and chocolate syrup. And it's so good you'll never know the difference! Cook time is chill time.
I *love* these cookies! They are chewy, chunky, spicy, and delicious! The recipe originally came from Betty Crocker's Cooky Book and were listed as "The Best Cooky of 1900-1910". For a change, try substituting cut-up dates or other dried fruits for the raisins. NOTE: If you replace the shortening with butter as many reviewers have done, you will probably get a crispier vs. chewy cookie.
I got this delicious recipe from a co-worker after she brought it to a potluck. It was definitely one of the hits of the day! Originally from Southern Living. Update Dec '09: I've now made this multiple times since originally posting; it is one of my absolute favorites for a potluck! I usually double it but find that if you cook double the amount of couscous at once, it can get gummy, so I cook it in two separate batches (cook one then use the same pot to do the next), then add the rest of the (doubled) ingredients.
This originally came from a Weight Watchers cookbook and I adapted it slightly for a chili cookoff at work. It ended up as a finalist and was voted "Most Memorable". I really enjoyed the flavor and it is very quick to put together, which is even better! 4 WW points for 1 cup serving.
