An awesome snack! My mom used to make this every Christmas, and give some away in Christmas tins, or fancy jars. Makes a great hostess gift, or teacher gift- but now I just make it for myself and my family, usually two batches each Christmas!
Creamy baked rice and broccoli, an easy delicious side dish or light lunch with a salad and sliced tomatoes! My DD will only eat rice if cooked like this (or chinese) it is really easy, and tastes great! Good re-heated too! I have also used spinach or 1 cup of frozen peas instead of the broccoli. I think this came from a milk calander.
I was assigned this recipe for a Tapas party that was held for our Book Club discussion of Don Quixote. Even people who thought they didnt like mussels raved about this dish. I think because the mussel meat is chopped up and you dont have to get past the consistancy to enjoy the mussel. The recipe is taken from "Cocina nueva" The new spanish kitchen by Jane Lawson, a must read for Spanish food lovers. The only change I made was to reduce the topping ingredients, the recipe in the book made twice as much as needed.
My aunt used to make these when I was a kid, then I started making them for my kids, and now my DD makes them, they are very rich, you just want to eat a small slice at a time. Cook time shown is actually chill time.
This dish is a great way of using up leftovers, and is very versatile re: what meat/fish you use. My friend Donny made these for me and I loved them, I think the recipe originated in one of the Company's coming cookbooks, but both Donny & I have adjusted some stuff to our taste. Great pot luck addition.
My MIL makes these every Christmas, my kids love them, but they also claim that they hate dates, coconut, and walnuts! go figure! These keep for a really long time, so they are a good addition to your holiday treats to have on hand
I stewed a whole bushel today, but this is the recipe for one batch. I can these and use them for spaghetti sauce, crock pot chicken cacciatore and anything you would used canned tomatoes for. I never buy canned tomatoes anymore!
These are really easy, can be made ahead, frozen etc... and are quite tasty warm or cold. If you are intimidated by phyllo dough (don't be, phyllo is your friend, and very forgiving) you could use Crescent dinner rolls, rolled and cut into squares, for the pastry.
I tried this at a concert on a boat in Toronto Harbour last summer, watching the "Carpetfrogs" perform, then I had to try a get a recipe, I basically combined ideas from several recipes that I found on the web, and I think this is pretty close, I have taken it to several functions and it is always a hit
I love thinly sliced crispy potatoes, and adding cheese to them just makes them all the better. I have searched for a recipe for this dish for a while, and I ended up combining parts of several recipes. I have tried lots of variations, this recipe is my favorite. But you can try differant cheeses, adding herbs, chives, green onions, etc...
This is a little different than some pork sates in that it does not have a peanut sauce. I made this for the appy party/Toolbelt birthday Party that Country Lady hosted, People said they liked it, maybe they were just being nice, but it does have a very nice flavour, and it is easy, so that always works for me. Oh yeah, I got this recipe off of recipe source, so yeah, I stole it, changed it slightly, but essentially it is the same.
I made this for Country Lady's Tapas party (Also Elly's birthday/retirement/farewell celebration) A savory strudel which was quite easy to make ahead of time and re-heat. Recipe from Gourmet Magazine/Food Network
