This hearty, delicious, and filling Portuguese sausage, cabbage, and bean soup was passed down from my grandmother. This rich soup is perfect for fall and winter when you need something hearty to keep you going.
Cold black bean salad with a bite! It makes a great side dish for any Mexican or Southwestern dish. This recipe has become a healthy favorite in our family. Adjust the amount of serrano pepper to suit your spice tolerance.
This one-pot soup doesn't take a lot of time, but it sure tastes like it does. Italian sausage, chopped spinach, and orzo pasta combine with green pepper, onions, and garlic, in a chicken broth and tomato soup.
Sweetened whipped cream is folded into a bowlful of delicious offerings - whole cranberry sauce, crushed pineapple, cubes of cream cheese, and chopped nuts. This is poured into a loaf pan, frozen and cut into beautiful slices. Serves ten.
The rose hips in this jam are uncooked so the jam tastes fresh and sweet; it retains its bright rosy-orange color. The hardest part is seeding the hips which can be sticky, but so worth it! Use wild or cultivated rugosa roses that haven't been sprayed with pesticide; pick them in the fall when they are bright red. I adapted my recipe from one in a Euell Gibbons field guide.
The recipe transforms thin supermarket pork chops into an unforgettable-juicy-tender-flavor-packed-lip-smacking pork experience. A combination of brining, marinating, and saucing. All can be prepared ahead except for the last 5 minutes of grilling.
This is a great recipe for parties. I freeze the leftovers; they reheat quite well. The zesty chicken and cooked peppers are a succulent delight when mixed with the melted cheeses. Cut the quesadillas into wedges and serve with sour cream and salsa.
This is a delicious, easy to prepare main dish that is a little different. The meat is cured overnight in a dry rub of sugar, salt, cumin and cardamom. Be sure not to over cook or the meat will be dry.
