I found this recipe in my Betty Crocker's International cookbook and thought it sounded pretty good. It is a chicken dish with rice, filled with spices, stewed tomatoes, capers, olives, ham, garlic, peas and more. I can't wait to try it myself. It could be a one dish meal or you could serve it with a salad. Hope you enjoy!
Very good sweet bread. Perfect bread for around Christmas time or any time of the year. Makes good toast and would also be nice as french toast. Sometimes we use half whole wheat and half white that also makes it good, but suit yourself. This is a recipe from a friend.
This is very easy and turns out so moist and soft. We have made a healthier adaption to it which I have also posted. But really this is the best. It is my Aunt's recipe. You can add nuts to it if you like. Hope you enjoy!
This recipe makes quite a bit of sauce so I always have left overs for another week. Delicious and not too hard. You would do best to use a sweet vinegar I usually use balsamic just because it is what we usually have on hand but rice vinegar is sweeter and lighter. I usually serve a medley of baked potatoes and carrots, and also fresh rolls as sides. I hope you enjoy!
This is a healthier version of our favorite banana bread recipe. It has very little fat yet still moist and light. The maple syrup also adds a nice depth of flavor. I use white whole wheat which is lighter, milder and less dense than regular whole wheat and would recommend it for this recipe. King Arthur Flour carries it.
This is another of my Mom's recipes. I am not sure where she got it but she has been making it for as long as I have known. The dates are really optional we don't always add them, they just add nice sweetness and nutrition.
This is a recipe I created about a year ago, I wanted to find an cheap and simple way to make good salsa. It is very close to what we get in Mexican restaurants all over south Texas especially San Antonio. I use a mixture of canned and fresh tomatoes which makes it keep longer- about 4-5 days in the fridge.
It is unknown where exactly yogurt originated though it is thought that the Arabs, Turks, or Persians are responsible. You can make your own yogurt at home with only milk and a bit of yogurt. Very easy, no yogurt maker required. I have been making it for a few years and know that anyone can make this. It makes great yogurt especially if you use whole milk; very creamy and thick. You can use nonfat milk but it is a little thin and the consistency isn't that great compared to with more fat. It is best to go with 2% or whole. I also use organic milk, I find the flavor to be more full and sweet.I found it in an Arabic cookbook. Here is a step by step tutorial I have made including photos: http://xeniahome.blogspot.com/2010/03/homemade-yogurt-middle-eastern-way.html
This is my Mom's recipe. It is so good, very light and fluffy with a crispy crust on the bottom. Very simple too. Can be used to make rolls, or loaves. You can easily double it. You can also add 1c. raisins and/or slivered almonds,orange/lemon zest and vanilla extract to a loaf for a festive holiday bread. The options are endless!
