On a recent trip to New Orleans, I got a delicious margarita at El Gato Negro in the French Quarter, a Pineapple Cilantro Lime Margarita. I had to come home and try and recreate it since it's a bit of a hike to NOLA from Ohio! While it may not be exact, I find this to be very close and VERY good! Perfect for a hot summer day!
This is by far my favorite stuffing recipe. I have made this many times and have always got rave reviews. Putting the mixture through a meat grinder isn't a requirement but the flavor is SO much better when done that way. For the recipe I usually use Jimmy Dean's regular sausage and Pepperidge Farm's stuffing and it turns out well.
My husband and I both like the taste of green bean casserole but neither of us are big fans of mushrooms. I experimented with the recipe last night and found one that we both LOVE. If you have any mushroom haters, be sure to try this recipe. It'll be gone in a flash.
I am not a big lover of chili but growing up I always loved my Dad's chili. I didn't have the recipe when he died and after lots of digging in my memories and trial and errors I finally figured it out. It's a 'sweet' chili rather than a spicy one but could very easily be spiced up. It always gets rave reviews whenever I make it. I use a packet of McCormick's Original Chili Seasoning for seasoning and it's awesome!
A friend of mine online posted this recipe for beef stew and I've made it about 3 or 4 times now exact to his recipe and it is so.darn.tasty! Sure to be a huge hit with all stew lovers. Best thing is it's made in the crock pot so it is super easy to make!
My Dad was an awesome cook and the one recipe that he handed out more than any other was the recipe he used for his meat marinade. Later on he would add a bit of Montreal Steak Seasoning to it as well but I'm going to write the recipe without it and let you decide if you want it or not. This was the biggest hit on his famous shish-ka-bobs.
A friend of mine made this and gave me the recipe. It is very adaptable to whatever your tastes are and can easily be made to fit your lifestyle and needs! I used rotini in this recipe but the original called for spaghetti (that didn't make sense to me). You could really use any sort of pasta you have on hand! I bought precooked chicken strips to use in the dish and it helped keep the dish speedy and tasty!
This is my take on the Rachel Ray recipe of a similar nature. I was going to post all of my edits to the one posted already, but I have changed up quite a lot and the recipe that is available online and in her book is not true to the recipe she prepared on the show. This is a definite crowd pleaser and a sure-to-impress meal for dinner parties!
I use the fresh spinach and in my experience it has made a lot of difference! I also do not add the onions but that is because I am allergic. That's one of the things that was missing from the original show recipe online. The additional cheese layer allows the lasagna to "stick" together better and will stand up better when serving.
ENJOY - I know I do!
A co-worker of mine always made this taco dip and ever since I stole the recipe from her it's been a big hit anywhere I bring it. Be prepared for this to always be your "thing" to bring! You can also easily jazz up this taco dip to your liking by adding the toppings you like!
