I get compliments on my skin all the time. Here's my secret. This scrub, along with no makeup is the key to my smooth skin. Please take care, though, this might be a little harsh for really sensitive/damaged/broken skin. Great for body, too-just adjust the measurements to your liking. A thick paste for heavy scrubbing, or less powder for light exfoliation--it works, and leaves your skin baby-smooth. Great for rough winter skin.
I just looooove the flavor of the Oriental flavor ramen, but don't want the MSG or high salt. Here is a copycat that tastes just like it, without the sodium. I use it in everything now, and add salt to taste.
According to history, this was one of Casanova's favorite dishes. I have made this without the truffles, but I bet it's even better with them... A good Valentine's dish. From Italian Cooking & Living, March 2002.
These are fabulous--big and soft. I am posting this here since the book that the recipe is in is 3 inches square, and the kid likes to take the book and hide it. These are the best molasses cookies I've had.
I'm staying away from wheat, but wanted a nice white sauce. All the others I have seen were thin or too sweet. This one is rich, creamy, and has a great flavor. Replaces white sauce in casseroles and tetrazzinis. Can be used as a base for cream of mushroom soup, too. Add spices you want to create the flavor you need. All spices listed are optional--I use this as the sauce for my chicken and rice bake.
I went vegetarian on my birthday, and decided I needed to invent some yummy burgers that don't have veggie chunks or weird flavors in them. I also didn't want wheat gluten in them, so I came up with these, and my son even liked them! The measurements are approximate, and also, feel free to accessorize this recipe to your own tastes!
I came up with these to use up eggs and leftover linguine. It's easy, tasty, and is a definite kid pleaser--a good way to give them eggs. Adults can add onions, garlic, or spices as needed, but this is a good base recipe.
Not just for the celiacs! I was skeptical, since the last recipe I tried was gritty, heavy and nasty. These are light, rich and absolutely perfect. I actually like these better than "regular" peanut butter cookies, and from a big fat Momma, that's saying something! Adapted from Catherine's recipe.
My Grandmother was the epitome of the perfect wife and mother. There will never be anyone else like her. She passed away when I was very young, but I remember spending time with her in her garden. She is missed, but she lives on through our memories and her incredible recipes.
