Being married to an Idaho boy, we eat potatoes a lot and I am constantly searching for ways to use up the huge boxes of potatoes his family sends us. Luckily, after all these years, I remembered when I was living in California I went to dinner at someones house where they were using the leftover mashed potatoes rolled up in tortillas for dinner. Thus the inspiration for this recipe!
I used to make these all of the time before I had to be concerned with my weight. I still make them every once in a while as a special treat because I love them so much. I didn’t see any other recipe on this site that was an exact match, and this is the recipe I love the most.
I have noticed that whenever several people are given this recipe and asked to bring it to a potluck they are completely separate dishes! This is my favorite recipe for these. Although I highly recommend going the long route and making your own potatoes. The frozen ones just don't taste as good.
I am not a big red meat person, but these are really delicious. I got the recipe out of an old cookbook I found at a used bookstore for a dollar. I don't like a single other recipe in the book, but this recipe alone was more than worth the dollar I paid!
This is my favorite recipe to make for guests in the summer. It is light and flavorful! We used to have a lemon tree at our old home, and the trick was to find as many things to use up lemons as possible.
This is the recie my grandmother gave to me. I have no idea where she got it from. But they are SO yummy! They are crisp and chewy and full of flavor. I usually buy the cloves whole and crush them myself.
This is my mothers recipe. I really don't like cookies, but I LOVE these. Every year for christmas we always made these. My Mom would cook up a huge bunch of them, and we would all sit around the table icing them. Mom would get out her cake decorating materials, and we would have fun decorating them. Then we put them on plates and delivered them to our neighbors. The best thing about these is that they acutally taste better after a few days when the icing has a chance to penetrate the cookie.
This is a light and fluffy version of cheesecake. The recipe came from my grandmother, and until I was about 15 I thought that this is what cheesecake was! I still much prefer it to its heavier counterpart, and everyone I have ever shared it with loves it. I included the time it takes to set in the "cooking" time.
This is a family favorite. The first time I ever made it, I accidentally used a plastic spoon to stir the sugar mixture, and as it melted, I noticed little white bits of plastic floating in the pan. Needless to say, everyone had a pretty good laugh at me. My advice, then, is to use a wooden spoon or something else that does not melt! You have been warned... =)
