This is a simple to make Alfredo sauce, but it gets rave reviews. It pairs well with about anything you can imagine, and you'll be dissatisfied with restaurant or out of the can Alfredo sauces after you've learned to make this one. Feel free to substitute the butter or Parmesan for lower fat alternatives, but if you substitute the cream for a variety of milk, it will significantly alter the taste, and you will have to use a thickener such as cornstarch or flour.
One day at a trip to an amusement park, I had an apple jolly rancher slushy. When I got home, I thought that I could make an alcoholic drink that tasted like an apple jolly rancher, and set to trying different things. I ended up with a relatively simple recipe that tastes quite good. Be careful though, it can sneak up on you because it does taste so good!! (Also if you want more of a martini-type cocktail, simply strain the liquor into a cocktail glass and omit the soda, it tastes good on its own)
This recipe actually came in the instruction manual of my kitchenaid mixer. I have modified it a little as I have experimented with making biscuits. In the south biscuits are the building blocks of any good breakfast. Once you've made a good biscuit, the options are endless. I usually make these on the weekend. My favorites are sausage gravy over biscuits, bacon or sausage egg and cheese, and jelly/jam biscuits.
This is the best margarita you'll ever taste and you will never go back to using a mixer again.
Note: This margarita is not exactly the "traditional margarita" It has some complexities that are slightly different. If the beer makes you worried, remember, you should not use a whole beer, only a third, it simply gives the margarita a lighter body. If you taste beer in the margarita you have added far too much, or used too heavy a beer. Feel free to sub the lemonade concentrate with limeade concentrate. I have found that limeade makes the drink too tart, but to each his (her) own...
Bechamel is a classic sauce, often a base for many culinary creations. Here, I have listed the simplest addition to Bechamel, cheese. So tonight for dinner, why don't you wow your family with fancy mac n' cheese?
This is a classic cinnamon roll recipe, I have simply made as many light version substitutions as I could to make this sweet treat a little less calorific, but just as sinful in taste. Its a great Sunday brunch treat, if I do say so myself.
I was reorganizing my recipe's when I came across this recipe that I'd gotten as a freebee in the mail some years ago and never tried. I modified the recipe to suit my tastes, and was pleasantly surprised. If you are in a time crunch, this dish can take two modifications that will greatly reduce preparation time. 1) you can use canned or precooked/chopped chicken and 2) you can use frozen or out of a can biscuits (just make sure they are thawed first)
This jerky is on the hot side, but really complements the natural flavor of venison. Cuts of meat from the ham section of the deer are best for jerky, in my experience. You can also use very lean cuts of beef if venison is unavailable.
This is a really tastey way to do meatloaf. The venison brings some extra complexities to your favorite classic dish. If venison is unavailable, this is still a great recipe for a regular meatloaf. Be sure to choose lean beef if you're going to use that. Additionally some people like to add crushed saltine cracker to give the loaf more hold. I don't like it and don't add it to this recipe. Having said that the loaf stays together pretty well on its own, but feel free to add 1/3 cup crushed crackers if desired.
I make this fish nuggets with catfish and stripper we catch out of the lake. This is easy and tastes great any time of year. Also great for those weeknights when you just don't have the time or energy for serious cooking. I usually accompany this with whatever veggie I happen to have on hand. And as I don't do a lot of frying, I tend to fry something else with it.
When DF and I were at the end of the month, low on money, and scrounging to make meals, I created this chicken dish, and I thought it turned out really tasty, so I thought I would share. Just as a note, I buy whole chickens to save money, so I often use random chicken pieces for any chicken meal. Feel free to use whatever chicken you have handy, but make sure to adjust the cook time for the thickness of your meat.
Such a tasty summer treat. This is just the basic recipe for white sangria. You can add what ever fruit you like to give this drink extra fruity flavor. I've tried a great variety, but I always go back to berries (black, blue, raspberry), peach, and plum, as they tend to impart the most flavor. Now don't forget, eating the wine soaked fruit is the best part!
I have tried a lot of different ways to make salsa, but this is by far the best and easiest salsa I've ever made. It is a constant favorite in my household, and every time I bring it somewhere, I end up giving the recipe to a handful of people. Enjoy!
I got an email from my mom with a bunch of copycat recipes. Most of them are already posted on zaar, but this one isn't so I thought I'd go ahead and get it out her. Enjoy. Servings and yield are guesses, as I have not actually made these yet.
I used to get these fries at cheap little Greek restaurants. When I moved, however, no place served them anymore. So I started experimenting and found it was quite easy to make them on my own. These are a simple and delicious way to do fries.
