These sound so good! My sister and I are planning our upcoming "girls' day" and this will definitely be one of our treats to make for that day. Thanks for sharing

This sounds like fun!!! I'm in Saudi Arabia and cooking in the Arabic world is Soooooooo much longer than the 30 minute meals of the west. I would love to share a recipe with you but once you saw the length of it, no one would want to make it LOL You can read my page, Cooking The Arabic Way, on my web site, About-KSA,

If anyone is interested in a very traditional chicken and rice, Chiken Kubsa (kub-sa) which is really yummy, let me know!!

Good Luck and I'll be watching!! Hugs, Dolly

I would love to try your chicken and rice recipe.- love trying traditional, home cooked, recipes....even if it takes all afternoon, the hope is it would be something special enough to have been well worth the effort without breaking the bank in cost of ingredients. Pam

Dolly, I have gone to your website....VERY informative! And yes, I'd love to see the recipe for Chicken Kubsa.
Thanks for your input.......................Jan

I just finished reading your webpage. It was very interesting! Very much different from the southern American cooking that I'm used to.

Must get Lillian to post her "Corn bread salad". It is a winner to take to socials! I made it for one of our airport party and a man walked up to me to ask for the recipe. Testimony enough!! Kay

Every cook in Minnesota knows how to make Tator Tot Hot Dish. If you come from somewhere else you might call this a casserole but in Minnesota it is "hot dish".
1 lb hamburger
(1 lb) package tater tots (you probably won't use the whole package, but this is usually the smallest size I can find)

2 (10 ounce) cans condensed cream of mushroom soup (or 3 cans if you want it extra creamy)

1 or 2 cans of vegetables, or a pkg of frozen vegetables, whatever kind you like. I prefer mixed vegetables.
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
While the oven is preheating, brown the ground beef (seasoning to taste as you cook) and drain off the grease.
Spread the beef in the bottom of a 2 to 2 1/2 quart baking dish.
Drain the liquid off the vegetables and spread them over the meat.
Using a rubber spatula, spread the cans of soup over the top of the vegetables and meat. Use the soup as is, straight from the can. Do NOT mix it with anything.
Arrange a layer of tater tots over the top of that.
Bake, uncovered, at 350 degrees for 50 minutes

Sounds yummy what is Tator Tots?

babash- A long description of a form of shredded potato.... I believe that they have also already been partially cooked so are quick and easy to add to meals. They are similar to what you find in hash brown potatoes but are formed into about 3/4 inch by 1 inch cylinder shaped nuggets that are frozen and packaged to be reheated that are then served like french fries. Looking forward to the recipes shared. Pam

One of my favourites is to bake chicken breasts or thighs on a bed of sliced mushrooms. The sauce to bake in is 1/2 cup of honey, 1/2 cup of mayonnaise, 1 desertspoon of Dijon mustard, mixed together with already cooked bacon pieces. A good handful of grated cheese, sprinkled on the top then baked at 180 degrees C for approximately 35 mins or until the chicken is cooked. The sauce is adjustable depending on the amount of chicken being used, this recipe is sufficient for 3 breasts. Experiment, it is deliciose. This is listed as Alice Springs chicken here in Australia on The Whoot website.. hope this helps.........enjoy.......Ann

I'm in New England so maybe some other dishes from around this country as well. We've done baked chicken and pasta and meatloaf. I thought it would be fun to have some new dishes.
At some point maybe it would be fun to do a "Taste of the USA" We're always looking for something different...but easy and economical as well. Thanks for your input.
