Pizza Crust Fantastico

Rating: 4.12 stars
This crust I developed after many rounds of dough. It has become a weekly favorite! Its rosy color is from the sauce, and the chewy/crusty dough is a real treat! When baking, I like to use a pizza stone, but a perforated pan works well too.

Butternut Squash Cakes

Whether you're eating gluten-free or not, this is just a really nice, and very easy, winter dish.

Sweet Corn Cake

A Mexican sweet corn cake with a spoon bread consistency.

Corn Tortillas

Rating: 4.41 stars
This is the real thing! A simple mixture of masa harina and water results in the most wonderful corn tortillas you ever tasted. The secret is to use a cast iron pan! You can buy masa harina at Mexican grocery stores or in the ethnic food aisle of large supermarkets.

Restaurant-Style Taco Meat Seasoning

Rating: 4.6 stars
This tastes very close to the taco seasoning favored by a very popular fast-food taco restaurant. You can make this at home, and let your family prepare tacos the way they like.

Beef Tamales

Rating: 4.46 stars
These are just like the tamales my Abuelita used to make for special occasions. This recipe makes a lot, but if you're going to go to all the trouble of making tamales from scratch, you might as well have a party! You will need butchers' twine and a large pot with a steamer basket to make these. May be frozen up to 6 months in heavy-duty resealable plastic bags. To reheat, thaw in refrigerator and then steam or microwave until heated through.

Gorditas are similar to pita pockets but much heartier! Can be stuffed with just about anything! I make them with a mixture of corn masa mix and all-purpose flour.

Slow Cooker Chicken Massaman Curry

Deep Fried Candy Bars

Rating: 4.17 stars
A Scotland favorite. Deep-fried candy bars such as Milky Way®, Snickers®, Mars® Bars, etc. We like Snickers® the best. A real treat! This recipe is my own variation. Enjoy!

Inspiration and Ideas

Beef Asado

Rating: Unrated
This Filipino dish is rich in flavor due to the slow cooking of the beef with all the ingredients. The beef can be cooked to tenderness a day before, so you can skim off the fat. Do not use pressure cooker for this dish. This is a very versatile dish. It can be served with rice, bread or boiled potatoes.

Poblano and Cheese Tamales (Tamales de Rajas con Queso)

Rating: Unrated
This authentic Mexican recipe for homemade tamales is straight from Mexico. Tamales are stuffed with a spicy tomatillo sauce with poblano chiles and cheese - delicious! In Mexico, Chihuahua or Oaxaca cheese is used, but those cheeses are hard to find here, so you can substitute with Monterey Jack. [Originally submitted to]

Cachapas from Venezuela

Rating: 2.25 stars

Cachapas are traditional to Venezuela. They are a corn pancake that are so delicious and very easy to make. Traditionally they are topped with cheese or meat. Add a little butter on top and queso blanco or any cheese you like. They are loved by all ages.
