I was eating some fajitas and rice one day and wondered "how about I combine this somehow?" This is the result. Green salad and corn bread are very good complementary dishes.
If you like fluffy brown bread this it. No white flour here. You can use any 100% whole grain wheat flour. I mill my own. This bread is not heavy like most 100% whole wheat breads. If it is you used too much flour and your dough was too stiff. If it flattens out and won't stand up you need more flour. The total amount of flour is usually about 7 cups. This recipe has been in my family for years and we all make it. We make a lot more now that we have powerful mixers and the hand kneading is bye bye.
Great spread with cream cheese and/or Nutella or just plain butter. Toasts up great. My kids loved it with peanut butter.
A delicious recipe for brunch or anytime.
Another of my Super Bowl creations that was a huge hit with all who tried it.
Easy to make chocolate cake covered with a delectable topping of coconut, almonds, and chocolate.
If you have ever been to Nova Scotia you would have seen these sweet & spicy little wraps in every little pizza shop or corner store. This recipe is easy to make and sooo good to eat.
This was my favorite to eat, and now it's my favorite to make.
A deliciously alcoholic and sweet apple pie, using Kahlua liqueur to lend a complex flavor.
A flavorful apple walnut bread. Great for breakfast or as a dessert
My aunt has been making this recipe since she married my uncle. One day, my mother borrowed the recipe and invited them for dinner. My uncle thought it was the best chili he had ever had and told my aunt she should get the recipe for it to make it later. Suffice to say, my aunt was not pleased - but she still makes it for him.
This is a recipe direct from my Irish/Welsh ancestors. Keep in mind, sugar and other ingredients were hard to come by before the early 1900's.
Easy curry that even a simple boy like me can make. Serve over rice. Enjoy!
This is another recipe I came up with by combining several recipes. I don't normally love squash but I can't get enough of this one. It has celery, onion and green pepper but it also has pimiento, almonds and cheese. There is nothing like it.
I've been trying to perfect the perfect lasagna, for my tastes at least. It's been a long road, and I've played with it and tweaked it quite a bit and now, I love it,all my friends seem to wolf it up. I made the instructions non cook friendly and simple. It's good when it's done, it's better after it's been in the fridge the next day.
Contrary to popular belief, corned beef and cabbage is not traditional Irish fare. But when the Irish came to America, they found that their beloved bacon was rather dear, while corned beef was a cheaper alternative. This dish is a truly beautiful, all Irish, alternative to the corned beef supper. This uses a whole piece of bacon, rather than slices. You may need to special order this from your butchers.
A delicious easy-to-make cheesecake that's been in my family for 25 plus years. I got the recipe from my mother and have been making it myself for the last 10 years.
A delicious casserole of rice and chow mein vegetables that is one of my favorites.
Moist and delicious banana based cake, enhanced with a banana rum glaze that is absorbed into the outer layer of the cake. Easy to make using yellow cake and instant vanilla pudding mixes with impressive results.
A great alternative to a standard rice accompaniment.
