In response to a request for Christmas Pudding, I'm sending along a recipe which has been in our family for years. It's called Parson's Pudding. My sister-in-law makes a very similar Christmas Pudding but uses suet in her version (Suet Pudding). Parson's Pudding
I couldn't believe how dirty my watch and silver jewelry were when I tried this. Yuck! This saves money and is safe for you and the environment. The solution can be very drying to your hands so consider using rubber gloves or even tweezers to handle the jewelry. This recipe is from wire-sculpture.com.
Try using sautéed chicken breast meat, it's so much tastier than poached, (Recipe #226050 came with this recipe), from Cook's Country magazine, June/July 2007. We didn't use the cilantro because I hate the stuff.
This doesn't save time but it does make consistently al dente pasta every time (very important for folks in warm climates like mine in New Orleans). It cuts down on the steam you put out into your kitchen.
I had this marvelous cranberry sauce about 5 years ago at a friends house. Since I have Diabetes, I substituted Splenda for an equal amount of sugar...you could switch back if you like. I love this recipe and make it every year at Thanksgiving. It's best if you make it several days ahead to allow the flavors to blend. It's a step above the "norm".
My mother took an East Indian cooking class at our local college. When I was a teen she tried out the recipes she liked on us kids.
I remember this salad being a favorite of ours. How authentically East Indian it is, I don't know, but it is good and I haven't seen any just like it.
This is a great appetizer, or pupu as they call them in Hawaii. Serve a platter of this with toothpicks. Decrease the amount of red pepper if you want it less spicy. This comes from Pupus, an Island Tradition by Sachi Fukuda. This makes about 4-6 appetizer servings
Looking to add other grains to your diet? Try millet as a hot breakfast cereal. Note: I adopted this as an "authorless" recipe, as it was one I had tried and liked. I have changed the recipe from the original description that it made 2 servings; as I and both other reviewers at this time found that it really makes 1 serving. It can, however, be doubled very easily. I cook mine in my rice cooker which I recommend as a very easy way to make this.
