Banana's Foster: Serves Two….has alcohol in it though, although most of it burns off in the cooking process.
(these directions are not exact…we found that measuring them made the dessert not as much fun to make, and depending on the temp of the burner it always turns out a little different each time regardless…
Please be very careful, this is a FLAMING dessert, meaning the alcohol you add flames, making a great show!)
This is the recipe for the BEST. LEMON BARS. EVER. My dad got it from some cookbook years back and we have never looked back! You can get a nylon nut grinder at food specialty stores, or I got mine at a yard sale. It gives a better texture but if you don't have one use a food processor to grind the nuts or chop them finely with a knife. The reason it makes 25, which means they turn out small, is that they are SO rich! But if you really want to you can cut them bigger– just be warned they're calorie-laden! Continue reading
A family favorite. I add the tarragon only if I have it; it's not essential. Continue reading
My dad's unique chili. The heat intensity depends on the chilis that you use. You can use canned chilis or roasted Anaheim peppers. Continue reading
You can spice this up by adding cayenne pepper or crushed red peppers. Continue reading
Well, it's not haute cuisine, but it's definitely "fast, cheap, and easy"– not to mention filling and fairly nutritious. Serve with fresh fruit for added nutrition.

A Hawaii staple. It's a soup with pork, sausage, veggies, and beans, but the way I make it it ends up being more of a stew. Very hearty meal. Goes great over steamed white rice and have some cornbread on the side, you deserve it. Continue reading

Kind of a Sloppy Joe without tomatoes (or slop). I can't claim credit for this one; it's from recipezaar, but with my modifications. One of our absolute favorites! Use a cast iron skillet if you have one; it makes for a wonderful flavor, even though it's a little more work to clean. This makes about 4 to 6 sandwiches, depending on the size buns you get. Warning: my husband and I regularly eat this in one sitting, alone, when I make the whole recipe, so make sure you make enough! Continue reading
