I made Ceil in NJ's homemade ravioli and was looking for a rich but smooth sauce to accompany it. Tomato based with cheese, cream, pesto, and garlic. A great combination! This sauce is also excellent in lasagna! Easy and quick to make. A little goes a long way. Enjoy!
A tasty and quick appetizer from Paula Deen. This simple recipe is quick to put on the table or to serve as a bread side. Very easy to season to one's taste and fun to experiment. Try some crushed red pepper in the cheese mixture, a tsp or two of dry ranch dressing mix, or a tsp or two of light brown sugar, or chives.
This recipe orginally came from a Certo insert but over the years I have changed it a bit to suit our tastes. A bit of sweetness with a bite! When a plate of crackers, each with a thin layer of peanut butter, cream cheese with chives, dollop of this jelly, all topped with slices of pickled jalapenos, gets set out it doesn't last long!
An easy box mix gussied up a bit! I do prefer to cook muffins from scratch but love to have a box mix in the cupboard for the times we are craving something quick to snack on or want that warm aroma wafting through the house during the early morning hours.
=) ...... This recipe evolved from one of those little Jiffy box mixes! So easy to mix up and so easy to eat them all in one sitting! A burst of tropical flavor mixed with the ever so conservative taste of dates and bran! A wonderful meeting of opposites!Enjoy!
A wonderful combination of brown sugar, molasses, spices, and raisins! I am crazy over a good gingerbread with real whip cream. This sweetened goodness is a bit richer due to the sauce but ooooohhhhh so good!
I love the flavor of Grape Nut Flakes and I have found a few of my favorite recipes with this cereal off of the Kraft website. I forget about the low fat cooking when these come straight out of the oven -the ole butter gets smeared on! =) These are also perfect for those folks looking for low sugar muffins.
An infusion of creamy chocolate and rich coffee! Enough to make one's tastebuds melt! This creation I made up was inspired by one of Iron Bloomers recipes- Coffee Jello. (Forgive me IB for using instant granules!) I topped off this recipe with a splash of Kahlua, whipped cream, and a sprinkle of cinnamon. I didn't know if I was in a caffeine stupor or in love! What a fantastic combination!
I found this wonderful recipe in Yankee Magazines 2nd Annual New England Cook-Off Cookbook. I love to mix boneless chicken strips right in with the pasta and I also find myself sprinkling a bit more of the dried pepper flakes just before serving.
A real comfort food during the cold winter months. Such a quick an easy recipe with elegant results. This recipe came from a piece of paper I found in a cookbook while rummaging around in our local used book store.
A great way to use up leftovers from a "New England Boiled Dinner"! Any pasta noodle will do for this hearty combo of ham, cabbage and apple. This is definitely a comfort meal for the cold weather. Enjoy!
A versatile little cookie that marches to the beat of its own drummer! Get creative and roll the bread in coconut instead of walnuts. Slice the bread strips a little in the middle and add a few raisins or jam before frying or baking. Sprinkle with powdered sugar and cinnamon!Enjoy!
I got this recipe out of an old 1934 baking soda cookbook. I love to try different pancake mixes and this one sounded delicious. Now I'll be raiding the other cereals (Bran Flakes, etc.) to try the different variations. Enjoy with you favorite syrups or toppings!
