This is my MIL's salad...she got this at the RV park they stay at in Donna, TX. It's creamy, crunchy, sweet, slightly-salty ...and very light all rolled up into one dish...the first time she made this my SIL and MIL ate the whole bowl!!..it's addictive and often requested!
This is my version of queso that is familiar with Pappasito's in Houston, TX. I found this copycat from CopyKat.com with my adjustments of more onion, garlic, and tomato.. and this is fairly close..but not quite there.. it's really good all the same!! Hope you think so too!
This is a really good salsa/sauce that will put bottled versions to shame. My best-friend's SIL in Arlington, TX made this for a party once and I had to get the recipe. It makes alot - so it's good for a gathering - or as we use to say in TX - for a "throw-down"!
This is my husband's grandmother's recipe that is cherished by the family. They are the best cookie that melts in your mouth. They don't have the normal peanut butter fork crossing...but more of a crackled sugar type cookie... My husband comes from a huge family - and these are one of the cherished recipes!!
This is a filling and really good soup - with garlic bread and a light salad it's light,simple,great summer meal. I copied the recipe a couple years ago from the Houston Chronicle - when I was looking for something to use up extra squash and zucchini from the garden.
