My own invention of several years ago (or perhaps a combination of other Asian-type recipes I had seen before), scrupulously tested and vetted. I think the sauce is fantastic; it suits my tastes as it is not as sweet as some chinese restaurant sauces and is probably much more healthful, yet it's still spicy and intensely flavorful. If you have a committed carnivore for a spouse, or if you are one, you can substitute real meat for the wheat gluten. I've made it with tofu and soy-based meat substitutes as well.
Having grown up with these, I didn't realize that most folks have never heard of a wet burrito. It is a meat and bean (or all meat or all bean) burrito with a spicy gravy and cheese on top. They are available here in many restaurants, and no self respecting bar would be without one on the menu, lol! Once you try them, you'll never go back to "dry" burritos again! Don't let the long list of directions scare you, these are easy!
So good broiled, wonderful luncheon or dinner with a Greek salad and rice pilaf. adapted from Canadian Living mag. (cook time includes 10 minutes marinating time) The photo shows them in a pita, have tried them both ways in and on, equally good either way, also so good just over rice, preferable brown rice.
A yummy filling of chicken, mushrooms, spinach, bacon and cheeses, layered between buttery-crisp sheets of phyllo. This recipe will make one 15 x 9 inch pan, which will serve 10-12 happy people, or two 8 x 8 inch pans, so you can bake one, and freeze the other (unbaked) to enjoy at a later date when time is short and good food is a must! All your meat and veg in one tasty packet. Developed for RSC #6.
This recipe is a holiday tradition for my brother's former in-laws. He may of parted ways with his wife and most of his worldly possessions, but at least he got to keep this delicious recipe! All holiday dishes should be this simple and scrumptious!
This is a very tasty and quick pasta meal. I got the recipe years ago when I was still at school and went home with one of my friends to have dinner at her house. Her family traveled to Tuscany every year and this was their version of a pasta dish they had eaten there. Serve with a side salad and some crusty bread. You can use any type of pasta really if you haven't got penne pasta, it's really nice with tortellini as well.
This base is meant to be divided into 3 portions which can be frozen for up to 3 months. All you have to do then is thaw the base (put it out in the morning) and decide if you want to make Recipe#48837, Recipe#48838 or Recipe#48839 (all recipes posted here on Zaar). In under 20 minutes you can have a fantastic meal for 4 ready, and it will taste like you have been cooking all day! The meat in this comes out so tender and the casseroles are all delicious.
This egg roll recipe was given to me by my Grandmother "Grammie" a while ago and I JUST got done making a batch, they taste and look WONDERFUL! Its just a basic recipe and it can be substituted in many different ways. I'm not a spicy food lover so I even substituted it a bit. ENJOY! CAUTION: DON'T BITE INTO IMMEDIAETLY; ALLOW TIME TO COOL COMPLETELY.
This dressing was so very tasty at a Provident Living expo. The person who made this was hosting a booth featuring several different grains one could make use of when storing food for emergency preparedness.
This is my first Recipe post, so I wanted it to be a good one! I adapted this recipe from one I clipped from the L.A. Times in 1978. The original recipe called for canned diced green chiles and Monterey Jack Cheese instead of fresh chiles and cheddar. It is tasty both ways. It is a good brunch or light dinner dish. I like to serve it with salsa and sour cream. My co-workers request it when we have a brunch potluck.
I got this recipe from a restaurant in Baltimore, Maryland many years ago. When the chef gave it to me, he, accidentally on purpose, left out the Cream Sherry, but I knew to include it. You can purchase crab roe from Charleston Seafood. It is $18.37 for 1 lb. (frozen) (shipped overnight). You can contact them at www.charlestonseafood.com or 1-(888) 609-3474. A substitute for crab roe are the yolks of hard boiled eggs. Your guests will absolutely love this VERY EASY TO MAKE SOUP.
People used to travel miles and miles just to get salsa and chips to go from Don Emilio's Restaurant in Larchmont, NY. No matter how hard anyone tried, there was no getting the recipe. Then one day at a party in work, a Columbian girl brought in salsa that her husband had made...and it was identical to Don Emilio's. Aaaahhhhh....amazing salsa whenever you want it. And you'll want it often. And you thought chocolate was addictive???? (Check out my guacamole recipe, too)
My husband won a pizza contest with this pizza from Jane Brody who got it from Pizzapiazza in Lower Manhattan. He won for best tasting AND best looking pizza. Hard to believe when in competition with other cheese and meat-loaded pies. This one is full of vegetables with low-fat cheeses and homemade sauce in a whole wheat crust. Baked in a springform pan, the sides allow for an attractive design of plum tomatoes and fresh basil leaves. It's definitely worth the effort.
Carrot bread that is much too delicious to be called bread. If you have eaten at Mimi's, you know what a treasure this recipe is, if you have not, you will be delighted! The original recipe compliments of Mimi's Cafe.
This is one of my recipes I like to use for special occasions such as at my Christmas 'open house' and New Years Day buffet. It is a great addition to a buffet and is definitely a crowd pleaser at potlucks. I often prepare double batches of the meatballs, bake them in the oven, freeze on a cookie sheet and when frozen slip them into a plastic bag. This allows me to take out as many as I need for the meal I am preparing. Found this recipe hand written on a sheet of paper tucked in a cookbook picked up at a yard sale.
I found this recipe on the web somewhere and decided to try it. It is absolutely wonderful and the meat just falls off the bones. As my husband describes it "they are succulent!" This is a must in our family at least every other week!
