I have not yet made this recipe, and can't remember where I found it, but wanted to post it before I lose it. I can't wait until the weather cools off so that I can try it. Lots of yummy flavors in this one!
Here's another one I don't know where I got and haven't tried. Yellow rice is oldest DS's favorite food, so I have been meaning to make this for awhile. I don't know about the water chestnuts, DH is not a fan. If you get to this before me, let me know how it is! I don't know about the size of the mexicorn (this is a guess), but I think that it only comes in one size.
This dessert/salad brings back such fond feelings. This is the recipe my grandmother served the kids 2-3 times a year when we were all together. After she died no one could find her recipe for this. I guess that is what the internet is for! When I surprised the family with this recipe at Christmas dinner, both my aunt AND uncle cried. I hope your family enjoys this dessert as much as mine has.
This is a copycat recipe from Jimmy Buffet's restaurant. Recipe adapted from Todd Wilbur's version of Margaritaville Jamaica Mistaica Wings www.TopSecretRecipes.com. It is our all time favorite wing recipe! They are some work but so good! The dipping sauce really makes this recipe. The recipe is for 10 wings, but you will have a lot of extra sauce (enough for 20 more wings).
I rarely make anything that is a lot of work, even if it is worth it. This soup is an exception. It comes from the Asheville (NC) Junior League's 1982 Cookbook "Mountain Elegance". The contributor is Lane Weaver Byrd (Mrs. R.W.H.). My mother-in-law asked me for this recipe, and that is a monumental occasion! I have never been able to find Oxtail Soup Mix, so I use Vegetable. I usually use ground hot Italian sausage in place of the whole ones, just to try to streamline the process a little. Please try this recipe. You will not be disappointed!
This is so addicting! I got it from a book called Half Baked Gourmet - Party Food. I will have a party just to make this dip. Even my non-cooking sister asked for the recipe and makes it with her friends all the time. The jalapeno sauce is usually with the Tabasco at the grocery store.
DH is a huge mama's boy when it comes to her cooking. This was one of my first attempts at cooking for him. When he pronounced it "as good as my mama's", I knew I had a winner. I often add bacon to this, making it an 8-layer salad. Cooking time reflects cooling time.
These wraps are so yummy and healthy. Even my non-veggie eating 4 year old scarfs these down. They are so quick to throw together that they are one of our few "regular" menu items. This is another recipe from The Mom's Guide to Meal Makeovers.
These meat pies are so good, easy to make, and travel well. Be careful with the hot peppers; Scotch bonnets are super spicy. To make these kid friendly, we usually don't add the peppers until just before filling, setting aside some plain filling for the sensitive mouths. These are really good with pineapple coleslaw. I got this recipe from the September 2006 issue from Womans Day magazine.
If you can plug in a crockpot you can make the most delicious chicken ever. This chicken is so tender that it is easy to shred for sandwiches. I can't remember where I got this recipe, but it can really get you through the lean times of the month.
This is a great kid friendly way to add greens to a meal. I was a little skeptical of this recipe the first time I tried it, but it is really good. It's from a book called The Mom's Guide to Meal Makeovers, which I highly recommend for anyone trying to make fast, yummy, super healthy meals for their families. Enjoy!
This is one of my family's favorite recipes. A real one-dish meal! It goes together easy, uses everyday staples, is kid friendly, and tastes great! I got the recipe from an A Taste Of Home booklet. The other night, I promised DH this dish but didn't have any crescent rolls, so I substituted Grand's. The family loved it more than the original.
