Oh, I've been meaning to read Esperanza for several years but keep forgetting to PUT IT ON THE LIST. :) Doing that now.A home recipe I've been thinking about a lot as I plant my garden this spring is salsa. All ingredients are to taste: three or four fresh tomatoes, a green pepper, a jalepeno, a small onion, garlic, pepper, salt, chili powder, and a little white vinegar. YUM! Can't wait!
Michelle- I hope you get to read Esperanza soon! I think you will enjoy it. I love salsa and planting all the ingredients sounds very smart! Best of luck! ~L
My grandmother's sour-cream chicken! Served over rice or potatoes, it's delish! And now I'm hungry :)
Meradeth- I have never had sour-cream chicken. It does sound yummy. :) ~L
We love home-made coconut macaroons, but it’s been a long time since I made them. Say after me “must try harder, must try harder” oh for some more time.
Barbara- Those home-made coconut macaroons sound tasty. I think the fact that you don't make them all the time makes them even more special. Life sure is busy! :) ~L
My mom's Welsh Cookies. I just love them and I can't make them at all. Mine are like hockey pucks.
Alex- I have never had them! I hope you can have them soon. :) ~L
Home made key lime pie, in fact, I just had a piece, but don't tell...it's too early. Have a great day!Paul R. Hewlett
Paul- That sounds like a delicious way to start the day. :) ~L
My grandmother's banana bread recipe (I put it on my blog some time ago). What I love about it is that you have to make the loaf completely by hand to give it the special rustic texture. Once I cheated and used some modern appliances to take the easy route and the results were so disappointing!
Sharon- Your grandma's banana bread sounds good. I like that it has to be done by hand and I can imagine that it would taste better that way! :) ~L
My grandmother's chicken! Yum!
Patty- Yeah! :) ~L
I like an Arabic dish called babaghanough. It's made with oven-baked, mashed eggplants (insides only) and tahina and garlic. Add a little oil and spices, grab yourself some pita bread, and you have a yummy dip! :-)
Lexa- I love babaghanough. One of my friend's mom makes it and it is sooooo good! I have never tried to make it, but I do love to eat it! :) ~L
This isn't really a recipe, but I make good pizza. We never order out for pizza because mine is better. The secret is the crust I use. ;)
Kelly- How awesome that you make a fabulous pizza. The crust must be delicious! :) ~L
Tatties and mince with gravy
Terence- Sounds interesting! :) ~L
