    I love broccoli salad. LOVE IT! You know the kind with raisins or craisins, sunflower seeds, shredded cheese, bacon, broccoli florets, etc. etc. etc.? It's not salad, it's dessert. You can even pretend it's all healthy *snort* lol. I took all the elements of all the different versions I have tried, changed them up a bit and made it more evil and even more addictive. Get creative, there are so many things that could happily go into this salad and make it even more fantabulous.

    Recipe #515675

    I started making this recipe for our baked goodies tray that we give out to friends and family for the holidays. Frankly I just wanted something simple and easy to throw together. Turns out everybody loves them and ask me to give them the recipe. Well here is that recipe my friends.

    Recipe #492773

    One of my favorite Malaysian curries that I have adapted to use more commonly found ingredients here in the US and using the crock pot. It has a delicate flavour and I make it barely spicy for my own tastes. Ground dried shrimp can be found in Mexican markets or you can substitute with a teaspoon of fish sauce. Authentic Sayur Lodeh uses a shrimp paste called belachan, Candle nuts are replaced with macadamia/cashews, and galangal with fresh ginger root. Zucchini is not a vegetable commonly used in this curry but it works well with the flavours of this dish.

    Recipe #435730

    I wanted to make something quick and easy for dinner and threw a whole lot of middle eastern/indian ingredients together and came up with a meatball and veggie "thing." The B/F thinks I am kind of a freak because I am able to eyeball ingredients, throw things together, and more often than not it will be edible. However in this case he said "this is one of the best things you have ever pulled out of your, ummm head" (sanitized for Zaar). He then forced me to remember, and write it down so I could make it again. So here it is. I have no idea what to call it.

    Recipe #409578

    Here is the story :) As an Aussie living "Up Over" (in the US) I asked help my 11 year old niece make Pavlova for her report on Australian Christmas Traditions & food. The report was handed in & then I got the urgent call from my Brother. As part of her report she was to make a "Pav" & serve it to her class. She had handed in her report with a traditional Pavlova recipe. It serves 6-8 people. Her class is comprised of 32 kids required to taste some Aussie "Chrissy" traditional tucker (food). If you have ever made a Pav, you know it takes a LOT of work. For an inexperienced 11 year old making the meringue base/crust, it's tough stuff & I was not up to the challenge helping her make five of them. Then possums (as Dame Edna would say), a stroke of brilliance struck me & we decided to try and fake it! To my surprise it worked! YEAH MATE! Tastes really close to the real deal. I've uploaded some pics to show the Mini Faux Pav we made to test the recipe out, & then the final result as made by my niece.

    Recipe #404479

    My SIL wanted a carrot cake for her birthday. I am not keen on layered cakes. They are too much of a pain to make. Bundt cakes have the less hassle and pretty presentation factor. My first attempt was in a more complex designed bundt pan and it was a flop! Use a simple design bundt pan, make sure to grease it up really well, and flour it.

    Recipe #368057

    Australian Hot Cross Buns have a very moist and melt in your mouth feel. I have tested several recipes from Zaar and have taken what I like to come up with these. The family flipped over them this year.

    Recipe #365813

    My b/f loooooooves Bakers Square French Silk pie. However, the chain has closed all of its stores in Southern California. A few Valentines days ago I tried the recipe that calls for Knox Gelatin and buttermilk - that was a disaster. This recipe which I found on is the closest to perfection as I have been able to find. Making sure everything is well mixed is the secret to a nice high fuffy pie.

    Recipe #357575

    My parents are from Brooklyn NY (coming from an Aussie this might sound strange) but my parents migrated to Melbourne in the early 1960's. From the age of 7 onwards every summer vacation we would visit the family in Brooklyn NY. The things I looked forward to most on our visits was of course the original Nathan's and on Brighton Beach Avenue there was Mrs. Stahl for Potatonik. Halfway between a kugel and a lava hot greasy potato brick which was so wonderful on cold winter days. I assure you, this concoction is heaven! The original recipe was posted in the NY Times food section.

    Recipe #316010

    I wanted a rich flavorful Chili Colorado. I took the best of all the recipes I have and came up with this. The BF is not fond of chunks of tomato or onion. I chopped the garlic and onions finely - you are welcome to leave them chunky and use chopped tomatoes if you do not have picky eaters :) This would also do well in the crock pot. Prepare the meat till step 3 and then place the meat and the tomato puree in the crock and heat on low for 6-8 hours.

    Recipe #297171

    Tonight I threw together a soup for dinner. This is simple, quick and hearty. BF is not keen on anything healthy, and he has a long list of things he doesn't eat. I sneak vegetables into everything I cook to try and keep him nutritionally balanced, and adding things like kielbasa to keep him interested. We were really impressed with how good it was, so I am posting it here so I can remember and make it again. I am sure you could add almost any other sturdy vegetable to this and it would work fine.

    Recipe #278247

    My version of Ceviche. I am pretty much a wuss when it comes to hot spicy foods. So I made my own milder but still flavorful Ceviche. I also am allergic to crab, so this is made with Krab (imitation fish based crab or surimi). Cook time is really more for time the ceviche will need to chill.

    Recipe #275761

    The restaurant Northwoods Inn or Clearmans serves this slaw. I normally do not like cabbage, but this salad is delish!

    Recipe #271920

    Northwoods Inn or Clearmans serves this dressing over crisp chopped iceberg lettuce. It is out of this world yummy.

    Recipe #271818

    Irish soda bread is my favorite, but this looked interesting.

    Recipe #271810

    Every year it is my BF's and my job to bring the green bean casserole to the Thanksgiving dinner. The recipe started with us just adding bacon (because EVERYTHING is better with bacon) and then we added more "stuff" till we came up with this super fattening, garlic laden delight. Maybe next time we might have to add shredded cheese and some sauteed onions. . . food for thought :)

    Recipe #267424

    This is a slightly changed conversion of Bev's Sangria recipe #46365. This is approximately 150 servings. Great for a wedding, or large event. Served this recently to 200 post-grad students. It was the hit of the party. Thank you Bev :)

    Recipe #251757

    This is one of my favorite Thai dishes from a nearby restaurant. The smell of this cooking and then the caramelized garlic just sends my boyfriend over the top. Posting so I do not lose the recipe. You can also use pork instead of chicken.

    Recipe #232143

    I love this dressing at El Torito. I could sit there and just eat it with a spoon. I found this copy-cat recipe and I wanted to post it so I can make it myself, and secretly eat it straight from the jar :-)

    Recipe #206911

    My Mom used to make this for special occasions. I could eat a whole batch of this all myself. It is even better the next day all wilted and soggy, but most people prefer it fresh.
