Okay, so I know there are almost 5,000 chili recipes posted already, but I'm posting this one for safekeeping. My mother-in-law made up this recipe, and it's the only one that we use. She's one of those cooks that can come up with delicious recipes off the top of her head! So good, especially on a chilly, snowy night :)
Easy and elegant, a perfect romantic dinner for mushroom lovers! The wild mushrooms can be anything you like. The recipe recommends morels, chanterelles, shitake, oyster mushrooms, or a combination of them. We have only tried this with shitake so far with excellent results.
Coconut crusted chicken with orange marmalade sauce topped with kiwis. I would recommend using unsweetened coconut flakes because we've made it with sweetened and the dish turned out way too sweet for us.
A delicious and unique pizza that uses Monterey Jack cheese and an unusual sauce made out of artichoke marinade liquid, vinegar, and spices. Adapted from cooks.com recipe. The original called for a 16 oz Boboli bread shell, but we haven't tried that.
Unique picnic side dish. I've made this several times when bringing a side dish to summer barbecues. Every time, there's at least one person that asks me for the recipe. The original recipe also calls for 1 cup chopped onions, but I leave this out.
I love the versatility of this recipe! Often, we will use 1/2 the amount of meat listed and increase the vegetables. Vegetables listed below are what we like to use, but substitutions can easily be made. The original recipe called for onion and cabbage, but I prefer the mix below. The marinade may also be doubled with half reserved to use as sauce for the vegetables. The pork may be marinated up to overnight but only needs 15 minutes, it will have more flavor the longer it is marinated.
Family tradition from hubby's side. Best cheesecake we have ever tasted! Very rich, but worth every calorie :) The secret to success is to add the eggs individually and mix each time. We have lightened it up with Neufchatel cheese and fat free sour cream with excellent results.
The addition of five spice powder to the batter is what makes these Chinese pancakes special. I use these with my recipe #399013 *Note: The dough needs to chill for an hour prior to making the pancakes. The pancakes do not keep well left-over, but are delicious freshly made!
One of our favorite Asian dishes, especially when served with homemade Chinese pancakes! The meat needs to marinate anywhere from 15 minutes to 8 hours ahead of time. I like to use my recipe for recipe #399018 along with this.
These are my own creation....my friends have raved about them at dinner parties! I combined my favorite aspects of two different stuffed grape leaves recipes to come up with this. They are a bit of work, but well worth the effort for a special occasion or dinner party! You could also add a medium onion, I don't because I don't like onions.
