Brett & Bart's favorite spaghetti

Brett & Bart's favorite spaghetti by jeanne templeman

This is an old Italian recipe that I've been cooking for 30 years, and my boys and husband all love it. I got this from my good friend and extraordinary cook Jeannie Puente. The trick for the old Italian flavor is that you cook it for 2 days in a crockpot. I don't leave it on at night for safety. Delicious!

Try this chicken and you will understand why. It is truly delicious! My wife really loves the dipping sauce too. It's fantastic with or…

Spanakopita (Spinach Pie)

Spanakopita (Spinach Pie) by Nancy Miyasaki

I love spanakopita, but it's too much work. This is a great way to make spanakopita for a crowd. And it's really yummy, too! Just remember the filo has to be defrosted overnight or for 5 hours before assembling.

Guava Filling by Yolanda Fernandez

Guava cake filling is made from guava paste. This filling is very rich and is quite in par with the Dominican cake but can be used for any other cake.

Scalloped Potatoes ~ Microwave Quick!

Scalloped Potatoes ~ Microwave Quick! by Salad Foodie

Scalloped potatoes cooked in 12 minutes? Compare that to the hour-and-a-half baking time most scalloped potato recipes require, and this recipe may become a year round “fav” for you since the microwave keeps your kitchen cool. Another appeal is the unusual and subtle flavor Swiss cheese gives to this dish. The recipe is based on one…

Healthy Veggie Fajitas

Healthy Veggie Fajitas by Lyndsey

This is one of those dishes I like to just whip up for dinner. It's kind of like a Mexican stir fry. You can add meat if you want to. I usually useingredients I have on hand. Serve with black beans for a healthy, high protein meal.

Chili Sauce

Chili Sauce by Salad Foodie

Chili sauce is one answer to that bumper tomato harvest. The perky piquant sauce can compliment many classic recipes like meatballs, meatloaf, cutlets, chops, tenders, eggs, potatoes, etc. This recipe is from Ball Blue Book of Canning (2010) and is what I’d deem a standard chili sauce for a wide variety of family uses. It is not…

Low Carb Homemade Bread

Low Carb Homemade Bread by Pam Solomon

Who doesn't love the smell of fresh bread baking? Yum! It has to be one of my favorite smells. I have tried several times to make a really good loaf of low carb bread, but wasn't thrilled with the final outcome. After several failed attempts I finally got it right! This recipe makes a very tender bread with a light wheat taste. I used…

Arroz con Pollo - Yellow Rice and Chicken

Arroz con Pollo - Yellow Rice and Chicken by Salad Foodie

Spanish, Cuban, South American - a traditional and popular ethnic dish, this ranks among my favorite comfort food at its best! Most often accompanied by black beans (see link) and green peas. Rice takes on a yellow cast from that most expensive of all herbs - saffron. My mom-in-law used a flavoring packet called Vigo which contains…

Easy Persian Rice in a Rice Cooker

Easy Persian Rice in a Rice Cooker by John Spottiswood

Admittedly, this doesn't capture the crunch outside of the normal method of making persian rice. But if you are just looking for a fluffy and buttery rice to serve with a stew or tagine, this works wonderfully and is super easy.
