This recipe produces a really moist fruit cake it was given to me by my mom, and it's really easy. My mom uses it for Christmas cake by icing it. I use it for birthdays, Christmas, or just for a treat. Originally submitted to CakeRecipe.com.
Hearty New Mexico inspired dish that can be made vegetarian simply by omitting the pork. This can be labor intensive and will test your multi-tasking skills if already roasted chiles are not available.
A generous mound of thinly sliced onions, cooked in butter and olive oil, becomes a fragrant, caramelized sauce with the addition of bouillon, water and a pinch of basil. Toss with cooked pasta and sprinkle with Parmesan before serving.
A delicious and easy side dish can be made by tossing asparagus and mushrooms together with olive oil and rosemary. I love roasting veggies and hit on this WONDERFUL combo. You could use a Hollandaise on the side.... but why??
This is a super fast and simple to make granola that comes out tender, crisp and delicious every time! It's very versatile, simply add your favorite dried fruits, nuts, toasted coconut, etc. If you prefer your granola harder, just cook it a little longer at the end. Using butter will give it a deeper/heavier flavor, oil gives it a lighter flavor, more like the commercial granolas you find at your grocery store.
