My grand-daughter sent me this recipe she says they are delicious. These cookies work very well using Splenda or Splenda for Baking,in place of the white sugar. (note, I have been trying different ways to cut down on sugar, using 2 tablespoons molasses in stead of the brown sugar works good and using the splenda for baking, I have also used all butter instead of shortening & butter with good results)
From www.TopSecretRecipes.com This is a favorite with Italian-style grub.The recipe comes from Carrabba's Restaurant. They serve the spices on a small plate and the waiter adds olive oil, then you are set to dip your bread. YUM YUM! TIP: Chop all spices in small chopper and store them in a small container in the refrigerator, since a little goes a long way -- that way you can have it anytime.
Rich and Creamy Flan with a beautiful amber sauce makes for a striking presentation. If you like cheese cake you will love this. You can add a bit of Amaretto Liquor if you like, or serve with a little Kahlua Liquor and a dollop of whipped cream. This requires a standing time of 3 hours and 20 minutes before serving.
These black beans are delicious. I have made these for years, everyone likes them. I have passed along the recipe to lots of people. I got the recipe out of a PG&E pamphlet (years ago). The recipe is from MUSTARD'S GRILL' in St. Helena CA, the Napa Valley. Prep time does not include soaking the beans.
This recipe has taken the frying and fuss out of crab cakes by shaping and baking them in muffin tins. For the best taste, look for pasteurized crabmeat in the refrigerator case at your market's fish counter, a better choice than canned varieties. Make it a meal: try these crabcakes with some tangy tarter sauce and coleslaw. Note:To make bread crumbs tear crust from bread then tear into pieces & process in a food processer into coarse crumbs, one slice makes about 1/3 cup crumbs. The recipe is courtesy Eatingwell.com.
My family loves Flan, I usually bake it in a round cake pan, But you can use ramekins. This recipe is NOT a hard as it looks. For best results make Flan a day ahead to let the caramel form a slightly liquefied layer. Time does not include cooling time.
