Those "taco seasoning" packets are usually so high in sodium and contain all kinds of unecessary junk. Give this one a try. You can adjust the seasoning to your liking, add onions when you brown the beef or not, whatever you like. I like to add fresh jalapenos when I add the sauce. Consider this a base recipe. Enjoy!
Yes, it is possible to make your own homemade Rice A Roni in the microwave. My microwave is fairly powerful, so please adjust this recipe to yours accordingly. Mine often just sits in the microwave for a while while I finish dinner, and that way it stays hot and is still good once I fluff it.
I tried to search a bunch of different ways, and I could not find this recipe on here. I am surprised, as it was widely published and so easy. Great for company too. I will post it her way with a few of my notes. This is not health food, except for the soul. Read the recipe all the way through, as you need to cook things simultaneously and use pasta water. I serve this with a green salad and crusty bread with garlic butter.
These are a delicious, easy way to use up those bananas that are on the way out. My children love these. The yogurt helps to make them moist. You can freeze these if you like. I have also used mini-loaf pans and baked for about 35 minutes.
John Stage almost always leaves something out in the recipes he publishes so they are just a little off. In this case, I think he just wrote "creole seasoning" when in fact, this stuff tastes most authentic with a spice they sell around here in the restaurant and in stores called "Cajun Foreplay." Use it generously. Either way these are delicious, especially served with Dinosaur BBQ Cocktail Sauce (recipe # 295318). Not for wimps!
The most delicious tasting spread! Sometimes I roll it into a log or ball with nuts, and other times I just put it in a crock. The ingredients sound strange but taste great together. I have been asked to make this for friends' parties and share the recipe. Easy, but fancy-looking, especially if you do the ball or log and arrange nice crackers or/and fruit around it. Great for parties or pot luck. I got this from Pampered Chef and altered a bit to my liking.
Fast and easy to make from ingredients you already have in the house. Many dinner guests ask me for this recipe. The fresh garlic really makes this. Add less or more to your taste. I use a garlic press so it's fairly effortless. Please note that this is a more traditional French dressing and not the American French dressing. I have also used this to marinate chicken with great results.
When I saw Rachel Ray make this on her show, I HAD to try it. Mmm...brushing the melted butter really does help make this sandwich. The maple mustard just adds so much. Now I crave this whenever I want a big protein fix. SO good. I prefer 4 slices of bacon per sandwich when the bacon is thin, and since I use regular wheat bread I use a bit less cheese (and all cheddar). Rachel kept the heat a bit lower on her show and now so do I. You want the cheese melty and gooey but the bread nicely browned.
I am not a big fan of eating Oreo Cookies, but this cake is TO DIE FOR. I served this for dessert at night to a bunch of overnight guests who requested it again for breakfast! I strongly recommend preparing this at least 24 hours before you want to serve it. It firms up and tastes much better that way! Prep time below does not include chilling time.
I love Italian wedding soup, so I couldn't wait to try this recipe. With very few adjustments, I was surprised how well it resembled the general flavor of the soup. Easy and delicious!!
* I have one in the freezer and will post OAMC directions once I have them.
There are many versions of Pad Thai. I hope you enjoy mine. It took me a summer to get this "right," and I still make adjustments all the time. This is fairly spicy...add less sriracha and more tamarind for a sweeter sauce. After you prepare it once, you will find it is simple to adjust the ingredients (and garnish) to your taste.
