I got this recipe from Bon Appetit, but they didn't have it published on their web site, so I'm putting it here for safe keeping. It was in the 'request' section where readers write in and ask for a recipe from a location / restaurant they'd eaten at. This one comes from the Grace Bay Club in Turks and Caicos. It looks quite good - so I'm hoping some of us enjoy this! UPDATE - I made these this weekend and they were good and went over big at a party. I made a double batch and note the puff pastry at my grocery was $4.99 ea - so for a double batch - that is 3 packages...so not an inexpensive appetizer for a party... Many liked them - but I thought next time I might see about using pie pastry instead of the puff pastry and perhaps adding a bit of cheese or maybe potato inside of the empenadas? The dip was great - even with tortilla chips too.... :)
My Aunt Joan makes the BEST cinnamon rolls (or are they sticky buns?) and my mom and I got her to give us the recipe. She's been making this recipe since the 1960's. The measurements and directions aren't precise so please be careful. Joan has been making these so long that these are the directions we were given. ;) If you bake moderately frequently, you should be fine! I hope some of you enjoy these as much as we have over the years. UPDATE: Xmas eve 2012 making for first time (big shoes to fill...) spoke with Aunt Joan. This recipe makes (2) 9X12 pans - about 12 rolls each. Topping updated; use half in ea pan. I used 7 C flour - and needed the dough for about 5 minutes. First 6.5 C into the mix in the bowl and the last bit used to dust the countertop while I kneaded the dough. In a hurry (xmas eve!) and so warmed the oven to 150 and then opened the door and put dough in oven - warm environment to double quicker... will update
When I was a little girl, Aunt Joan made the BEST rye bread I ever tasted. She'd sometimes give us a whole loaf and I'd have to make my brother and sisters promise not to eat it all.... For Christmas I asked Aunt Joan to write down her recipe and share with me. I'm putting it here for everyone's enjoyment. Note - it isn't very explicit, so you'll have to have some experience to get it right.... I hope some of you enjoy this.
This is a family recipe - made the day before and eaten at all family gatherings. It's typically eaten as a dip with pretzels. I married into this family - so don't know where the recipe came from - but it is always enjoyed.
Adapted from cooking light recipe. Honestly one of the best dinners I've EVER made. Saving here with the adjustments I made... sometime soon I'm going to sub out the chicken for shrimp and use fish stock instead of chicken stock. I put all of this on top of (thai) rice noodles. 4 oz noodles and all the veg and chicken makes 2 HUGE servings. 16 WW points each. Less chicken or sub shrimp would reduce points...
This is one of my favorite recipe's from my Mom. Used to ask her to make it for me every birthday - as the birthday child got to choose. Still making it...for my family now! Not sure of the source - feel free to adjust to your liking!
Got this from my mom in 1988 and have been making it since. It is an often requested recipe. No idea where mom got it - maybe the newspaper? It is similar to those out on the website, but doesn't match perfectly and we are pretty happy with this recipe - so maybe others will be too?
I cobbled this together from a couple of recipes I found on the internet. I have way too many peppers from my CSA and I love tamales and southwestern cuisine, so I'm going to make this today and will let you know how it goes, and adjust... So...to be perfectly honest, we like the other recipe I have for stuffed peppers - and I use Quinoa, instead of rice. If you make this - tweak it some more and let me know the updates!
