Baked Potato Casserole
This baked potato casserole makes a perfect side dish to bring to large family potlucks, picnics, and celebrations.
Chinese Green Bean Stir-Fry
Asian-style green beans with lots of flavor! This recipe is made for a large party; but can be scaled down for a family dinner. Serve cold or warm.
Sheet Pan Roasted Vegetables
Succulent roasted vegetables with a sweet and smoky, herby taste. Good for a main course with noodles or rice, or as a side dish.
Cuban-Style Yellow Rice
Yellow rice is a staple in the Caribbean because of its beautiful color and flavor. Being Cuban, our household often served yellow rice. It's traditional to garnish yellow rice with pimentos, but I don't like them so I don't. Serve yellow rice with Cuban-style roast pork, or add cooked chicken pieces while cooking the rice to make Arroz con Pollo.
Zucchini Corn Fritters
Yummy zucchini corn fritters that my family can't get enough of. These fritters are light and fluffy with lots of zucchini and fresh corn. Cheese is optional, but not in my house. Serve hot with ranch dressing.
Sweet Zucchini Relish
My mother's sweet zucchini relish is a family favorite. It's delicious on hamburgers and hot dogs.
Old Fashioned Potato Kugel
I got this recipe from a British grandmother. It is hands-down the best potato kugel my family (and most of my guests) ever tasted. It's fabulous served hot with sour cream. It's also incredible put in a cholent overnight.
My Big Fat Greek Baked Beans
I used to believe the best baked beans came from Boston or Texas, but ever since I discovered this very hearty giant bean casserole, I have to give it to the Greeks. 'Big Fat' refers not only to size of the beans, but also to the huge flavor of this dish. Use the largest beans you can find: Gigante beans are the best, but Corona and lima beans also work great. Serve alongside grilled meat or simply with extra feta for a great vegetarian main.
