You might as well bake pumpkin bread in the large batch called for here, because everyone loves it. Three full-sized loaves, lively with cinnamon, cloves and nutmeg, are your reward. Wrap loaves in cellophane, tie with a colorful ribbon, and give as a gift!
Big Blueberry muffins with a crusty sugar topping. A recipe I got from my Grandma. The blueberries and the sweet batter are fabulous together. Favorites of all who have tried them. Quick and easy, made with few ingredients. Remember to use paper liners!
This version of Texas caviar mixes black beans and pinto beans instead of black-eyed peas with jalapeno peppers, cilantro, red onion and bell peppers. Serve with scoop-style tortilla chips to make a zesty crowd-pleasing party appetizer.
Homemade meatballs made from beef, onion, oatmeal, evaporated milk, and egg, and glazed with a homemade barbecue sauce made with ketchup, brown sugar, garlic, and liquid smoke. Best meatballs I ever tasted. Everyone asks for this recipe.
Pack in antioxidants. The ultimate in simplicity and refreshing taste, this coleslaw is flecked with green, red and yellow vegetables, the colors signifying the presence of antioxidants (cabbage is thought to have anti-cancer activity). I like its crispy, sweet-and-sour taste, unlike that of a creamy coleslaw.
I learned how to make this while visiting my husband's family in Syria. It can be a healthy, fast, easy vegetarian/vegan main dish for lunch or dinner that is surprisingly filling when eaten with pita bread, or it can be a flavorful side dish.
