  • Amazing Chicken Tortilla Soup!
    This recipe has been a huge hit with everyone who has ever tried it. We make it almost weekly, and the leftovers are eaten immediately. It is also very healthy! It is a little spicy, so if you don't have too much of a tolerance for spicy foods, you may choose to leave out the seeds of the jalapeño. If you love spicy, like we do, extra cayenne pepper adds even more zing. Enjoy!

  • Easy Crock Pot Moroccan Chicken, Chickpea and Apricot Tagine
    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:

Pick ones that give to mild pressure but are not mushy. If you can't find any that are ripe, get hard ones and keep them in a paper bag for a couple of days until they ripen.

  • Kittencal's Taco Seasoning Mix
    After experimenting with many different spice combinations over the years for me this is the closest to the store-bought package taco seasoning --- I always increase this recipe 10x and keep in a glass jar tightly covered in my fridge to have ready for recipes, if you like lots of heat then adjust the cayenne pepper to taste or you may omit completely, if you can find some dryed granulated tomato powder then add about 1-2 teaspoons with the mix, I purchase mine at a bulk spice store it really gives the seasoning a lift, the amounts stated are equivalent to one package taco seasoning mix — don't save this mix to use only for tacos, add some in your recipes to kick up the flavor, it's even great in hambugers, ground beef mixture for casseroles, stews and soups, I even add this to my Parmesan meatballs --- this also makes a great gift for the cook on your list just increase amounts and present in a fancy glass jar.

    Are you craving that great rice from your favorite taco stand? Here it is. This is just like a good Mexican restaurant rice. Many recipes taste good... but the texture just isn't right. You know how it is... you have prepared scores of Mexican rice recipes but always have been disappointed. It may be delicious but kinda "gloopy and wet." Try this. Everything is pureed and cooked in. There are no chunks of anything... just dry fluffy rice with all the seasonings and just the tiniest hint of a tomato flavor. I will throw away all of my Mexican rice recipes- this is the one I have been looking for for years! (See note at bottom for OAMC)

  • 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.
