    Agua fresca's are Mexican fruit beverages. I love Agua Fresca's and these ones sound wonderful to me. these recipes are from Whats4eats. These refreshing beverages are typically served from large barrel-shaped glass containers. The lime juice adds a lovely tartness to the drink making it more refreshing. Some of the more traditional varieties are watermelon, cantaloupe and strawberry. I have given 6 fruit options, choose the fruit you like and enjoy!

    Recipe #455083

    This chicken in cream sauce recipe, famously known as volaille a la crème in the Bresse region, is delicious in its simplicity. Brown high-quality chicken in butter and then simmer it in a cream sauce. That’s all there is to it! Another recipe found on about.com for ZWT, French region.

    Recipe #369121

    An excellent way to serve corned beef! Smells divine! (You may use the seasoning packet that comes with the corned beef if you prefer.) CROCK POT instructions included.

    Recipe #141522

    In the 16th century the Turkish Mongois settled in the northern plains of India, bringing with them their Moghul cuisine. It is famous for splendid yogurt and cream sauces, the delicate use of highly fragrant spices, and distinctive cooking methods for meat dishes. Korma is the cooking method of braising the meat. Lamb is hard to come by here, so I've subbed pork successfully. Serve with hot cooked rice and Recipe #482649 482649.

    Recipe #482646

    Connie's recipe from family collection. Originally from Chart House.

    Recipe #462353

    I've been working on this recipe for years--tweaking and fussing, and I believe it is about ready. My family and friends love it. I also use it as meat sauce filling for lasagna.

    Recipe #152433

    A delicious kebab served over couscous with a dollop of Greek yogurt on the side. Recipe is from Cooking Light. Prep time does not include marinating time.

    Recipe #479326

    A quick tasty main dish. Serve with a crusty bread and a green salad. At the suggestion of some reviewers, you can make a cornstarch slurry to thicken the sauce, if desired.

    Recipe #323896

    Posted for the Zaar World Tour-Germany. This recipe is from my German great-grandmother. I took these to my son's school for "Heritage Day" when he was young. The other students/parents were a little "apprehensive" to try them when they were told these rolls had pickles, onions, and mustard in them. Needless to say, they were a big hit and I didn't bring any leftovers home.

    Recipe #169871

    Our family's favorite salmon recipe!

    Recipe #318756

    Recipe #473012

    This recipe is from week five of my food blog, "Travel by Stove." I am attempting to cook one meal from every country on Earth, and Algeria is my fifth stop. Couscous has been called the national dish of Algeria, and this version is fragrant and delicious.

    Recipe #465251

    This stew is a traditional Algerian recipe called "Died b'l-Qasbour." It is seasoned with saffron and cilantro. Serve over rice or couscous.

    Easy and quick, and also fresh and healthy! In this house each diner will get 2 chicken breasts, so the recipe serves 3 people -- but if you have smallies also sharing, 1 breast each will be enough for them, so my "3 - 6 portions" take that into account.

    This, like all Cape Malay curries, has as many interpretations as there are cooks! Cape Malay curries are usually not biting and strong, but rather an aromatic mixture of spices. Naturally this depends on the individual cooks, and the curry can be made much stronger by adding more chillis (hot peppers). This recipe is my way of cooking a chicken curry, more or less: it took some discipline to measure and write down how much of each spice I use! So obviously this is a dish you change to your taste. About salt: I like using a natural sea salt, like Maldon flakes or our own Khoisan sea salt. But if you use these natural salts you need more of it than when using processed table salts. Please adjust to taste. Do not expect the burning curries of India! If you can manage my spice mixture this is a most delicious dish, and the longer it stands, the better it gets, so is perfect for making a day ahead, chilling, and re-heating. But I know that across ponds these recipes are often "lost in translation"!!

    Wanted to keep this recipe a secret! But what the heck -- I enjoy Zaar so much, why be miserly?? Years ago I cut the recipe from a newspaper food column, and it hides, yellowed, in an old recipe scrapbook. I make it every now and then and I guarantee that it's a quick, easy, gourmet meal! The original recipe specified rice vinegar, but I use balsamic. EDITED ON JAN 8, 2010: Although I posted the recipe as I use it, it seems the 1 cup water specified caused problems for some cooks, so I've lessened the amount. If you use only 1/2 cup as below, do keep a close eye on the reducing sauce in case it thickens too much. And please -- DO taste the sauce before removing from the heat. Some people like it with more hot pepper, and some may want to tweak the other ingredients. Chicken breast is a little too dry for this recipe, so I stand by the point that thighs, even with skin, are the better option.

    Recipe #206167

    Made this for dinner last night and it was fabulous!

    Recipe #461499

    This is my Mother's favorite black bean recipe. I think she got it from an old Cuban cookbook. Her note is: "flavorful!" Cooking time doesn't include soaking time.

    Recipe #233154

    This is a wonderful lemon-flavored pesto. This was my first taste of pesto and I've never gone back! Update as of 2/13/04 I'm glad that you all like this. I freeze this now and keep it on hand for my spaghetti sauce or others sauces. It freezes great!
