Home Made Mayonnaise

Rating: 4 stars 109

Rating: 4 stars 14

Rating: 4.5 stars 29
It's the only ketchup recipe that I've ever had that stood up even close to as good as popular brands! It's different, but it's REALLY good! It's important to reduce this for a long time, like 4 hours or so. It will thicken just a bit as it cools.

Authentic Enchiladas Verdes

This chicken enchilada recipe is made with fresh green salsa, just like you would find in a Mexican restaurant or better yet, in a Mexican home.

Beef and Bean Chimichangas

Rating: 4.5 stars 1243
This is an awesome recipe, if you like Mexican food! These tasty beef and bean treats are baked instead of fried.

Clark's Quiche

Rating: 4.5 stars 1310
This recipe is excellent served for breakfast with fruit or at lunch or dinnertime with a salad. This recipe makes two 9 inch pies. The reason for this is because if you only make one you will hate yourself the next day when there are no leftovers. The quiche microwaves well the next day. In fact most people say that the flavors have blended better on the second day... If in the strange case that you are filled up with one pie, this is a great gift to give a friend or relative, or if you are stingy...it freezes well with tin foil.
