    This is our family recipe for traditional Christmas tamales. They are nothing at all like Mexican tamales. The dough is smoother and slightly sweet. The filling is also completely different from any other kind of tamale I have ever eaten. I have given the family recipe but, of course, I have made a few changes to it. I use all butter instead of using any lard, though everyone says that they taste better if you use the lard. I usually use 4 lbs of masa flour and 12 cups broth. I use 2 large whole chickens for that quantity of masa, and 2 1/2 lbs butter, no lard, and it works out well. Of course you have to increase all other ingredients accordingly. Some stores carry Maseca instead of Masa Harina. It is just as good. Though these are very fattening and very labor intensive, they are worth it. I make the increased quantity so that I can give them away. Even the people at work like them. We make them only once a year, so forget about the diet. We all love these!

    Recipe #350763

    I saw Giada De Laurentiis prepare this cake on her show on the Food Network, before Christmas. Her recipe on their site includes a caramel walnut sauce, but she didn't do that on the show. This cake is dense, slightly moist and full of flavor. It does not rise very high. My guests all liked it and I thought it was delicious with a cup of tea.

    Recipe #350301

    With the four kinds of cheese, this onion soup sounds fantastic! I can't wait to try it. This recipe is from Antoine's Cookbook.

    Recipe #349345

    This recipe is from my dear MIL - a woman who can make the simple great. I like to serve them with baked chicken and white rice.

    Recipe #331441

    This is a very tasty and colorful salad. You can omit the spinach if you like. You can use regular carrots, peeled and sliced medium thick instead of bagged baby carrots. If so, try to make your carrot slices and hearts of palm slices about the same thickness. There's never any left when I make this salad for parties, no matter how much I make.

    Recipe #331439

    I love this salad for a light lunch or as one of the salads when I have a buffet-type meal. Any kind of tuna works well, but I usually use light tuna in oil for this recipe. Light mayonnaise can be used for this recipe. It tastes best when made ahead.

    Recipe #330957

    These are really good - moist and flavorful. Great use for leftover roast turkey or chicken. The green sauce is the type known as "taco sauce". I serve these on shredded iceberg lettuce, topped with sliced radishes, The sides are usually Mexican rice and refried beans, though a lot of times we just eat them plain, as a snack. My kids like to top these with Tapatio sauce or with salsa. One of my friends tops them with sour cream and salsa.

    Recipe #324184

    I love eggplant and mushrooms, so I decided to try making a pasta sauce that uses both. I used Chinese eggplant (the long ones with a lighter purple and white skin) because they have less seeds, but you can use any kind of eggplant you find. I didn't peel them or salt them first. You can if you like. We enjoyed this. I hope you do too.

    Recipe #323989

    I started off with a cauliflower casserole recipe and came up with this, which was a hit with my co-workers.

    Recipe #317090

    Braised beef with juicy gravy and fried egg on top. If you can't find Ranchera steaks, try a latin meat market. If you use another kind of steak, try a very thinly sliced chuck steak. You may have to cook it longer for it to be tender. Added later: I see that the Spanish name of this dish is raising a few eyebrows. I gave the Spanish name so that someone familiar with the dish can find it. It has nothing to do with horse, just as a hotdog has nothing to do with dog. Try it - you'll like it!

    Recipe #316852

    This is to easy and delicious. I use a pressure cooker for this, so it is very fast to prepare. The preparation and cooking time does not include about 15 minues of waiting time for meat to cool off. Do not use bottled or fresh salsa for this recipe. It requires the 8 oz canned salsa casera found in the Mexican food section of the market. I use Embassa brand. Herdez brand is almost as good. We usually use this for taquitos. This makes enough for 36 taquitos.

    Recipe #305764

    This is super fast when using a store-bought rotisserie chicken. I buy one from our local market that uses only sea salt and pepper on it. I try to find a very light one, so that it won't be dry. The amount of mayonnaise needed varies, according to the size of the chicken. I like to serve it on a soft whole wheat bread or on soft egg bread, with the crusts removed and the sandwich cut into triangles. The herbs must be fresh, not dried. If you don't like cilantro, use fresh dill.

    Recipe #305762

    This is an easy and different kind of turkey than you are probably used to. I like to serve it with rice.

    Recipe #305759

    This cake has no frosting, but that's how we like our cakes! The nut topping is pretty and tastes great. You can serve this as a coffeecake. My husband eats it for breakfast once in a while, with a cup of tea. This cake is so easy to make and has a good flavor.

    Recipe #296841

    This is an easy and delicious casserole that can be served with just about anything. It's great for potlucks. I sometimes throw in a 4 oz can or diced green chilies or add 1/2 cup of pepper jack cheese for a little zip. Or you can add one-half of a 10 oz pkg of frozen chopped spinach, very well drained. If you use spinach, add 1/4 tsp nutmeg to cheese mixture. Added later: I tried Linda's suggestion and put the cottage cheese, sour cream, onion and garlic through the food processor first and I think it is a definite improvement on my recipe. I used tri-colored farfalle (bow ties) and added 1 c sauteed mushrooms. Best yet!

    Recipe #296312

    This is a colorful and tasty salad for summer. It's nice for potlucks. The beets are optional, but I like the sweetness they add to the salad.

    Recipe #296103

    I like a sweet cornbread, but I am trying to cut back on sugar. This recipe turned out very well.

    Recipe #296022

    This dish is generally known as Seco de Chivo. Goat or lamb is used interchangeably, though in America, lamb is much more commonly eaten and it is easier to find in the supermarket. When made with lamb, this dish is also known as Seco de Cordero or Seco de Borrego. This is great with mashed potatoes or rice. A friend tried this recipe and served it over polenta, which she says worked well.

    Recipe #291950

    A creamy, delicious dish that you can throw together quickly. I have served this to several people who had never tried cauliflower and they loved it!

    Recipe #291949

    This is a simple and very tasty potato salad. It looks great with all the green in it. There's never any left over when I serve it. This recipe can easily be doubled for a party.
