i take this to our christmas party at work every year, it's expected, and it disappears very fast. no worries about the bacon, it cooks quickly and creates a wonderful sauce w/the brown sugar. and you can prepare it the night before and just plug the crockpot in a few hours before you need to serve it.
this is the best way we like to have corn on the cob. the corn finishes cooking in the butter and seasoning, instead of adding them afterwards. it's also really easy to prepare as a side dish at a bbq, since you can do all the prep. ahead of time, and then just place them on the grill. we use greek seasoning, but i have used a variety of spices, be adventurous!
People love this sesame chicken. It tastes as close to the restaurant version as I think you can get. It is from about.com I found this a couple of years ago on that site, and BF requests it a tleast 2-3 times a month. it really is great, and although there are a lot of ingredients, it's basically simple to prepare.
i came up with this after trying a store bought version of this dish. with some suggestions from other people on recipezaar. it's really a combinatin of both. use whatever spices you want. but this was surprisingly good.
i used to make this all the time when i lived by myself, it's one of the first meals i used to make when i just starting out on my own. it makes a great authentic tasting mexican dish. it is orginally from the Better Homes and Gardens Cookbook, with a few variations. i had to refer back to it, because i am more of a "dump" cook, and nolonger use the measurements when preparing this.
this is a recipe i never thought i would like. but i LOVE it! it is so easy to make. sometimes i serve it over pasta, sometimes not. it's up to you. i have added meat to my spaghetti sauce before, but that really isn't necessary either because the eggplant is a meat substitute.
this is our favorite italian beef recipe, it is great for a party, the holidays, gametime, or your family anytime. it also freezes well, and i think tastes even better after being frozen. we serve it on a crusty sweet bread, but any sub or hard roll will do..you want something that will hold all those delicious juices
