This is such a delicious and easy cake--very moist, too! From the Cake Mix Doctor. Mixes up in minutes, but it tastes like you spent much more time on it. Frost with your favorite frosting--mine is #86768, Perfect Chocolate Frosting, by taylortwo. Serve with a big glass of ice cold milk--chocolate cake heaven, if you ask me. Oh! There is mayonnaise in this cake--don't say yuck! It adds moisture, but no flavor or extra sweetness to the cake. Really, it's just eggs and oil, right?
How is this one different? It's made with banana bread instead of plain bread. I had an extra loaf of it that needed to be eaten or frozen, and was thinking about my Recipe #76914, and thought--"Why not?" So here it is...start with a layer of your favorite banana bread, a layer of chopped bananas, more bread, and a lovely custard poured over the whole thing. It is heavenly! A nice change of pace, and very easy to throw together.
These are wonderful! The ingredients are just perfect and the flavors blend so well. Very easy to make, but very impressive. I see myself making these often, lol! Different, but delicious. From Easy Meals, Mexican.
This soup is so different, yet so delicious. Easy to prepare, just do your chopping and measuring of spices first, then all you need to do is make the soup. I can't really describe the flavor, except to say that is like no other soup I've had before--very "fresh" tasting--your tastebuds will thank you! From Easy Meals, Mexican. Don't let the long list of ingredients put you off. Doing the prep first makes it easy--chopping your veggies, and measuring the spices. And don't say yuck to the orage zest, raisins and chocolate. It all contributes the wonderfully fresh, lively taste of the soup!
Fast, easy, and so yummy! I had a brownie mix to use up, and my 4 year old was sick and needed a pick me up. Thank you Duncan Hines! These would be great for kids to make. Just 5 ingredients, and you've got great chocolate-chocolate chip cookies. And don't forget the ice cold milk to have with these!
This is definitely one for those nights when you don't have much time to prepare dinner. It needs to bake for one hour but it's so fast to put together, that you could get it ready in the morning, and refrigerate until you get home, then just pop it in the oven. Very delicious and amazingly easy, what more could you ask for? From Heirloom Recipes, submitted my M.R. She suggests 2 pounds of kielbasa for 6 servings. I cut it down to one pound for us, but followed the rest of the recipe to have a fair amount of beans for a side dish. She also says you can make this in a slow cooker.
This is a recipe from Steven Raichlen. He says to simplify the recipe, he subs regular soy and molasses. Totally authentic? Not sure. Delicious? Definitely! Don't let the ingredients scare you off, it's really very easy to prepare.
These are so easy, and so delicious! They cook up very quickly. Tender pork with onions, peppers, garlic, lime juice...well, you get the idea. From The Recipe Hall of Fame Cookbook, with a few changes.
I know what you're thinking, black beans and rice, kind of plain, right? But not this recipe--from Goya. My husband thought, "Ok, beans and rice, I already love those, what can be so different about this recipe?" He had to eat his words, along with the beans and rice, lol. With the addition of a few simple things, wow, these are delicious! And so simple, a really quick side dish.
Super easy recipe, adapted from Duncan Hines. A nice muffin with a bit of oats in it, and the blueberries add a nice bit of sweetness. You can make regular or jumbo sized muffins(see note in instructions). I forgot to add the berries in the ingredient list--until the correction goes through, it should list 2 1/4 cups of berries. ;)
I made this for our Easter ham. I couldn't find a recipe that I liked that had pieces of pineapple in it, only the juice. I found this on a net search, after going through many pages, lol. I had to make a little change, adding cornstarch to thicken it. The amounts here I have doubled, so we could have sauce with our leftovers, but you can cut the recipe by half, if you prefer.
This salad is delicious, and so easy! Tender strips of lime-garlic marinated steak, pinto or black beans, avocado, tomatoes, crushed tortilla chips, and more served on a bed of fresh greens with a wonderful tangy dressing. From a wonderful little book picked up in the bargain section at the book store--simply titled Easy Meals-Mexican. Very easy and fast to put together...don't let the ingredient list throw you.
This is one of my favorite new things to make. It is amazingly easy to put together, the chicken cooks quickly, and the resulting sandwich is fabulous! It's faster than take-out. When I first made these, I thought the chicken tasted a bit salty on it's own. But once it's all together in the sandwich, the flavors blend perfectly, and it wasn't salty at all. I did use low sodium soy sauce, by the way. It's one of those things that make you want to go back for more, even though you're already full, lol. From the Food Network Kitchens Cookbook...they use multigrain sandwich bread, we used nice crusty rolls.
