I got this recipe from my daughter. It is easy to assemble and tastes great. Mild, so it appeals to younger palates and those of us who don't like "hot spicy" - just full of flavor! Don't let the ingredients list intimidate you. It's much easier than it appears. Note: Sauce ingredients are marked with (s) (you can use 4 cups canned Enchilada Sauce instead of making your own.) Topping ingredients are marked with a (t)
I came up with this when my kids were small and very picky. It was a great way to get protein into them. Bean with Bacon soup, lean ground beef, cheese, and macaroni make up the base of this kid pleasing casserole. At 29, my son still asks for it!
I got this from a German friend of mine about 10 years ago. It's different from the others posted as it uses dumplings instead of noodles and adds some smoked ham for a more protein rich meal. Very tasty! (time does not include chill time for dumpling dough)
These are very sweet, which is why the bars are cut into small pieces, but the flavor is wonderful. There is a similar recipe on Zaar, but it has some differences and seems the method was giving reviewers a problem so I thought I'd post this as an alternative.
My favorite dish at our local Mexican Restaurant. Chicken, mushrooms & onions in a spicy cream sauce, YUM! Very rich, but so delish! A real comfort food. I have been playing with the recipe for some time, just trying to get close to what they serve. I think I'm finally as close as I can get. 5/30/08 Update: If you can find Mexican Crema (dairy case at my grocer) it is thicker and works better than cream. This is also good served over rice or noodles. ***I discovered that my Paprika had gotten old and lost strength, when I bought new, I also had to reduce the amount. The recipe now reflects the reduced amount.
My daughter made these when I was visiting her and they were delicious, now I ask for them! Easy to make for a quick meal with the use of short cuts like canned crescent roll dough and soup concentrate.
As a girl, my mother made these for special occasions and we loved them! When I was working with the young women at church, I made them for the girls and they loved them too. They look like beehives and have a wonderful apple-walnut filling. Yum!
I love almond flavor - in anything! I came up with these cookies about 20 years ago when I was trying to figure out what to do with almond paste... I figured it out! These are really good, but a little pricy because of the almond paste. (Be sure to use almond paste, not almond filling).
When my mother served this cake to us, I was amazed at the moistness and flavor. I never would have guessed that I was actually eating my vegetables! You can't even tell there are beets in it (their flavor cooks right out), but it's oh, so good. It's like the mystery fruit cake that no-one can quite identify. Give it a try - you won't be sorry!
My mother made these every Christmas to give as gifts. They were one of my favorite treats. It's loaded with apples, dates and nuts - yummy! Be careful not to over bake or it will become dry. I test it with a cake tester (or toothpick) to be sure it's done.
I wanted something in a hurry, so came up with these using what I had on hand. Super easy cookie bars using a sugar cookie mix for the crust. They look very elegant and taste delicious. Your fans will think you slaved over them, but they only take an instant! (Time shown does not include chill time for crust.) Try varying the type of jam and type of nuts. Lots of great combos out there.
Kielbasa & pineapple make a great combination in the simple, but very tasty dish. I got the recipe from my boss about 12 years ago and have used it many times since. Serve hot as an appetizer or as the entree for a light dinner with a salad.
Okay, I know there are 157 recipes for Mexican Dip, but this one really IS different. Serve warm. It won't be the prettiest dip at the table, but it will be the best! My kids loved it so much, they would eat it by the bowl with chips and call it a meal! Makes alot, but don't worry, it won't last long... (Note: jar/can sizes are approximate - will correct, if needed, once I can check them out.)
Cool, light, refreshing taste treat for hot summer days. The combination of cucumber, cream cheese and dill is to die for! Adjust amount of onion to personal taste. I tasted this when the wife of an associate made them years ago. I muddled around until I came up with this recipe which is as close as I could get to the original. The recipe originated in Kentucky, I believe.
This dip is total decadence for artichoke or brie lovers! Served warm with party rye, sourdough bread or crackers, it is sure to be a hit! You can use marinated or water pack artichokes depending on your personal preference. I remove the rind from the Brie prior to use.
This is a little different from anything I've seen on the site and it is my personal favorite. I got it from a friend about 10 years ago. It's for those of us who love avocado but don't like the spicy dips.
