This is one of a number of historical recipes I am posting from my cookbook collection. It is adapted from the 1953 edition of Adventures in Good Cooking, by traveling salesman and food critic Duncan Hines, and featuring recipes collected from around the USA. This recipe is from Al Carder's restaurant in Chicago Illinois.
"Papas" is the word for "potatoes" in Quechua, the language of the Incas. Potatoes, which originated in Peru, are one of the most important foods to come from the New World. This casserole was inspired by the cuisine of Peru. Please note: this is not a recipe for sauce served over pasta.
This is an easy cake that mixes up in next to no time. Adapted from Lauren Chattman's recipe.
I recommend making this recipe in the food processor; the texture does not come out quite right any other way.
You can add ground cloves or other spices, or substitute pumpkin pie spice for the spices mentioned.
The only other person I know of to use this technique to make fried rice is the food writer M.F.K. Fisher. It may seem as if the eggs would stick to the rice and vegetables, but they don't. You can make the fried rice without the pork. Although the recipe specifies short-grain rice, I prefer to make this with long-grain. Prep time includes marinating time.
Adapted from Cookwise. Many people have asked about what will make a cookie flatter or puffier. Culinary scientist Shirley Corriher has three versions of chocolate chip cookies to illustrate the differences; this is the medium version. I have also posted the puffy version: Recipe #403375
The thin version was previously posted here as Recipe #80739
