I got this delicious recipe from a co-worker after she brought it to a potluck. It was definitely one of the hits of the day! Originally from Southern Living. Update Dec '09: I've now made this multiple times since originally posting; it is one of my absolute favorites for a potluck! I usually double it but find that if you cook double the amount of couscous at once, it can get gummy, so I cook it in two separate batches (cook one then use the same pot to do the next), then add the rest of the (doubled) ingredients.
Alton once posted this on his website and said that he always cranks out a bushel or two of it during the holidays. He also said "Dole this stuff out carefully. It is highly habit forming." I totally agree and for this reason have no earthly idea how many servings it makes! Depends on how much you can eat! LOL Especially good to anyone who likes the salty-sweet combination. Cooking time is cooling time.
This originally came from a Weight Watchers cookbook and I adapted it slightly for a chili cookoff at work. It ended up as a finalist and was voted "Most Memorable". I really enjoyed the flavor and it is very quick to put together, which is even better! 4 WW points for 1 cup serving.
I found this recipe while browsing through my Betty Crocker cookbook and thought it sounded tasty. I love that you don't have to pre-cook the pasta. The original recipe called for curry powder but I also like it with chili powder for something totally different (if using chili powder, you will want to double the amount). Also a good use for that leftover holiday turkey!
This is a variation of a recipe I came up with years ago. Because the ingredients are combined while the pasta is still warm, the dressing really soaks in and some of the cheese melts, leaving a creamy texture. I usually have a little bit of the dressing left over, which I save for spinach salad later. Hope you enjoy!
I *love* these cookies! They are chewy, chunky, spicy, and delicious! The recipe originally came from Betty Crocker's Cooky Book and were listed as "The Best Cooky of 1900-1910". For a change, try substituting cut-up dates or other dried fruits for the raisins. NOTE: If you replace the shortening with butter as many reviewers have done, you will probably get a crispier vs. chewy cookie.
I copied this recipe from a vegetarian cookbook many years ago and I just came across it again today. It is such a wonderful salad - I love spinach and cheese tortellini but the dressing is what really makes it stand out.
I had this at a New Year's party and it was so good I had to get the recipe to share here. Can easily be divided into smaller amounts, frozen and re-heated in the oven or microwave. Fresh chopped onion can be substituted for the frozen and it is also good with chopped artichoke hearts added. Serve with crackers or melba toast.
Courtesy of the Hershey's Kitchen, with a couple of my personal additions. Don't be scared by the cocoa powder! It adds a nice richness to the sandwiches - but it doesn't make them taste like chocolate :) Use the smaller amount of chili powder for less spicy "joes" :)
I came across a recipe recently that called for dry enchilada mix but I couldn't find it at the store. I searched around a bit and eventually came up with this recipe to use in its place. One recipe is the equivalent of a 1.5 oz package.
I was looking for a recipe for beef and noodles that didn't use any sort of condensed soup. I found one at Better Homes & Gardens and made a few changes to come up with this. I use Homemade Noodles (recipe 27344) for the noodles, and they absorb a lot of liquid so this is pretty thick - if you like it thinner, adjust accordingly (I've not tried this with purchased noodles but they may make a difference as well).
A co-worker brought this in for my birthday and I had to get the recipe from him because it was delicious! I'm not a coffee drinker so the amount of coffee flavor was perfect for me, but you may want to add more...so feel free to do so! Cooking time is freezing time.
