This is a very forgiving recipe - add or reduce seasonings to your taste. I've been making this for over 20 years and ever so often I'm asked - Have you fixed Chicken Creole lately? So much for subtle hints. I serve this over my own yellow rice (just add turmeric to your rice as it cooks) as that is how we prefer it. Some fresh baked French Bread w/garlic butter and large tossed salad. Very hearty meal that will leave guests begging for another Mardi Gras invite.
I don't know where my mother got this recipe from but it is a wonderful rich moist chocolate cake. Frost with Recipe #110707 and it tastes just like Hostess Cup Cakes but oh so much better. Mom would make 2 layers - fill and frost sides with the Whipped Cream Frosting, then use regular chocolate frosting for the top. Milk anyone?
My sister gave me this recipe several years ago. So very easy and so very good! I share this recipe often with other customers at the grocery store when we all gather and ask "What are you fixing this week that's good & different?" I end up usually doubling this recipe as it never makes it past 1-2 meals. Can make day before - keeps well.
Another great recipe from the depression era. My great grandmother made this often as she always had eggs on hand. Today, when we make this pie, everybody thinks it's Lemon Meringue Pie. One taste and you'll love this too!
My sister found this recipe some 30+ years ago...President Truman requested this often and Bess would go to the kitchen and make this for him herself. This is best served warm with FRESH whipped cream.
My father got this recipe some 40+ years ago at TWA. Crusty yet chewy outside - melt in your mouth inside. Smear with garlic butter and watch it disappear! I've taken a photo showing the bread in the hand formed foil baking pans, this is the 2nd rise. Final picture is fresh out of the oven.
When I was doing Weight Watchers and the boys were home, I got really tired of fixing 3 sets of meals each night. When I came upon this recipe - I just didn't tell them this was WW and to this day they still don't know. When the boys come home now - this is one dish they will request. Super fast & easy to fix on work nights.
4 oz. = 4 WW points (without rice)
*Note - in response to some reviews that experience the sauce being too runny or thin...extend the reduction time (after removing lid). It may take another 5-10 minutes to thicken and have the consistency you desire.
I love this recipe. My very dear friend in Atlanta makes these when we come to visit. Her family secret is to bake these in a very hot, oiled black cast iron skillet. Have some fresh creamy butter and blackberry jam or honey close by - they may not make it to the table!
Here's another great recipe from Jeff Smith, The Frugal Gourmet that says "This is an oldie and goodie. The biscuit topping puffs up and provides you with a whole meal in a wonderful form. If you don't want to make your own biscuit dough, you can use good old Bisquick." I've added a few things to make it my own. My entire family loves this recipe - even those that say they don't like pot pies. This is great dish to prepare and share with friends or family that is need of some good old comfort food.
I got this recipe from Jeff Smith, The Frugal Gourmet back in 1987. He made this recipe and ran it by Pizzeria Uno in Chicago and they smiled and nodded "It's almost as good as ours." This is easy, no roll recipe.
This is my husbands favorite birthday dessert. A friend gave my mother this recipe years ago. I've known it as Texas Dessert, Better Than Sex, As Good As Robert Redford plus a few more that cannot be posted. Great for Valentines Day too! For extra richness, use French Vanilla Cool Whip.
I'm always asked to fix my scalloped potatoes for any family dinner. Easy to make any time of the year. Omit onion if you must or do what I do - make one pan with onion and one without. The one with is always gone before the other.
I clipped this from a magazine back in the early 80's. This is a great summer salad - or when wishing for summer during the long dreary days of winter. We prefer the broccoli raw, but can cook to your taste preferences.
My sons loved meat loaf growing up. While all 3 were teenagers at home I would often double or triple this recipe for one meal. Even the one that hates onions loves this recipe. This recipe is from my mom's Better Homes & Gardens Cookbook (1954).
My sister in law shared this recipe with me a year or so before I married into their family. Since then, I've never been able to make ice cream for an event without everybody asking me for the recipe. It's great to add ingredients (fresh fruit, chocolate, nuts, etc) but still incredible just Plain Vanilla Ice Cream. With left over egg whites I always make recipe#111009.
Use Organic Milk and Cream for the ULTIMATE Homemade Ice Cream
I discovered this recipe on the Betty Crocker web-site and with a few changes have found an impressive way to serve salmon. Great for a busy night schedule. We like to serve this with a nice ceasar salad and baked potato.
