This is the easiest steak recipe in the world, courtesy of my friend Marcie, who also likes painless cooking. It is cheap (as steak goes), simple and surprisingly tasty. I'm not really sure what category it belongs in, because it's more of a tip than a recipe, but it is so good I just had to share!
This is an old recipe from my Mom's dad's side, the origins of which we are unsure. All we know is, they are addictive! Unlike traditional Polish and Czech pastries by the same name, these are tiny open-ended jam cookies. They are traditionally eaten at Christmastime. This is my mom's version of the recipe, so I must warn you from experience that if you double it, you will actually have more of a quadruple recipe!
A cool twist on the classiest way to start your morning with booze, for those of us who loved root beer floats as children. I recommend using a wine glass rather than a champagne flute, as the sorbet can be a bit unwieldy and stirring can be difficult with the flute. This could probably be adapted into a punch recipe for weddings and such, but I think it is best enjoyed with one or two friends on the porch on a warm summer morning.
This is a spicy staple in my kitchen. Reactions vary depending on the eater's tolerance for hot and spicy foods. I'm not sure why I started putting serranos in my spaghetti sauce, but now it's just not the same if they're not in it. This recipe can also be made using 3/4 of a jar of Ragu rather than the tomato paste. I think the texture is a lot nicer when I cook it that way, and I don't feel like it's cheating because it gets a complete makeover on the way from the jar to the plate.
Delicious and amazingly fast black bean soup. I came up with this one by virtue of not having very much to work with one night in college. Many recipes call for sherry, but I think the citrus vodka adds a little more Southwestern "zing." To spice it up even more, cook with 1/2 a finely chopped serrano pepper. Great served over rice and topped with cheddar and sour cream!
Since I work 50 hours a week, I am ready to eat when I get home! This recipe is a lot like my mother's, but twice as fast. I like to eat much more tuna than what is called for in this recipe, but people tell me I need to lay off the fish, so this recipe has been modified from the original. But it is every bit as good, and it's a delicious way to get your daily fiber!
I made this recipe up for my Halloween 2002 party, and it was such a hit that I decided to share it. It looks especially good in a glass bowl, and is a great conversation starter. This recipe would also make a fine St. Pat's Day drink, as it is a beautiful color of green. Simply use clover in the bottom of the bowl rather than Gummi worms
