This is one of my family's favourite recipes; I am constantly asked all the time to make it. I was taught it by a Moroccan friend who also lives in France - it is an old family recipe passed down for many years. It is great all year around - served with flat breads or pitta breads & assorted salads in spring & summer or served with hot fluffy & fruity couscous, assorted chutneys or pickles in the depths of winter. I make mine in a fantastic "Electric Tagine" made by Tefal; it of course works in a more traditional clay tagine - BUT the real secret is.......it works like a dream in a Slow cooker/Crock Pot. Try it out! If you cannot get Ras-el-Hanout, which is an exotic Moroccan spice mixture, including rose petals - don't worry, use the other spices I have listed instead; or I have a Ras-el-Hanout recipe posted on Recipezaar:

Kittencal's Beef or Pork Marinade and Tenderizer
black pepper, garlic, ginger, honey, meat tenderizer, olive oil, red wine vinegar, soy sauce, worcestershire sauce
Who ever said that marinades are only for flavor and not tenderizing has never tried this recipe! this marinade produces the most fabulous tasting beef and pork and tenderizes like nothing you have ever had before! I developed this recipe almost 20 years ago and still use it to this day, this works fabulous on a London Broil, it makes the best kabobs and pork tenderloins!--- the longer the meat marinades the more tender and juicy it will be, so plan ahead the meat needs to stay in the fridge for a minimum of 8 hours to 24 hours (even better if left for 24 hours!) the amounts listed are enough for 2 pounds beef or pork so you might want to double or even triple the ingredients, if I am doubling or tripling I usually cut back on the soy sauce and still only use 2-3 tablespoons fresh garlic, you can add in 1 teaspoon dry mustard powder also, the powdered meat tenderizer is only optional you do not have to use it this works great even without it! IMPORTANT - PLEASE DON'T FORGET TO LEAVE YOUR MEAT OUT ON THE COUNTER AND BRING TO ALMOST ROOM TEMPERATURE BEFORE COOKING, THIS WILL RELAX THE MEAT FIBERS AND CREATE A JUICIER AND MORE TENDER STEAK OR CUT OF BEEF ----------------- DO NOT substitute the honey for anything else except for maple syrup, using honey will produce the best marinade!

Old Widow Walker's Ziploc Omelettes
Mrs. Walker was my Sunday school teacher and we used to do this in the church kitchen, occasionally. This is my first memory of cooking that I cherish to this day. She keeps her age a closely guarded secret but is rumoured to be 115+ years old and perhaps, immortal. She has out lived three husbands and four children. She is still sharp as the Bowie knife she carries in her purse. I don't know why she carries a Bowie knife in her purse- but she always has. I asked her about it years ago and she said, "You would be surprised how often it comes in handy, Honey." I suppose it does, Mrs. Walker. God bless you. BTW- she is thrilled that I want to pass this on to another generation of schoolchildren. She was surprised that I remembered doing this with her over 35 years ago and was touched. When asked how to do it- she rattled off the instructions faster than I could write!Edited: Mrs. Walker died peacefully in her sleep 3-31-06 of natural causes a few days before her 106th birthday. She is mourned by our community because she had a hand in raising and teaching generations of our families. Thank you Mrs. Walker. You are loved, missed, and remembered.

brown sugar, cinnamon, honey, oats, salt, almonds, sugar, vanilla extract, vegetable oil, vegetable oil
Great snack for everyone, or the for kids lunches or even as an after school treat! Serve for breakfast with yogurt and fruit or over ice cream for dessert. Watch your time in the oven because sometimes it cooks a little quickly. This recipe came from Bon Appetit, March of 2002.A few baking tips I have learned from making this recipe often: I use a jelly roll pan so the granola will have maximum exposure while cooking. Also, if you do like your granola to clump, do not stir while baking. Allow to cool in pan for about 10 minutes or so, then run a spatula between granola and the pan to loosen. You will have so many clumps you will have to break them with your hands ; )

You've Got to Be Kidding Me Restaurant Rolls (or Bread)
This is really more a tip than a recipe - It is so ridiculously easy. After hunting high and low for the recipe for restaurant yeast rolls/bread that are served in many chain restaurants & steakhouses, I was astonished to learn that very often they merely use pre-made ordinary yeast dough and honey flavored margarine - The secret "recipe" I had been searching for was actually just a method.
