I often use the page food blog, but when I want to make something not listed, I resort to the internet. Here are my favorite online recipes! Any that you would add?
Lasagna (I also do the Peruvian thing and add a few layers of deli ham)
Cordon Bleu (Mostly I just use milk and normal cheese but one time I actually did purchase the expensive/fattening ingredients and it was so good that I tried to steal some of Wilmer's when he wasn't looking)
Pot Pie (a recipe for delicious pot pie innards)
Pie Crust (I mess up sometimes with other pie crusts. This one has been faithful to me)
Bacon + Cheddar + Chicken (all that with a teriyaki sauce)
Oven Broccoli (I boil the broccoli it just a minute or two before zapping it in the oven so that it is both soft and crispy)
Fresh Green Beans (I used to like canned best but these fresh ones won me over)
Homemade Mayo (it is so much better than store bought but many people just don't get how to do it right. Make sure you add the oil in the thinnest stream you can with the blender already on high. Also make sure that you cover the blender as best you can while you pour or blots of mayo will end up all over your face and hands. Maybe poke a hole in the aluminum foil to make a makeshift lid with a small hole for pouring? I like to add a little bit of milk to thin it out when it is all done.)
Juicy Chicken (found this one thanks to Bethany. Now I feel like I can prepare a Christmas dinner with little work involved)
Peruvian Beef Stir French Fry (actually called Lomo Saltado. Wilmer is better at making this than me so I just usually chop up and he fries. What we usually make is pretty close to this recipe, but we don't add oyster sauce or whatever that is. We don't add aji amarillo but instead chop up a spicy red rocoto pepper, bath it in lime and salt, and add as much as we can handle to our individual plates).
Wilmer has eaten all of these and approved all of them (though he wasn't a huge fan of the thai pesto)
A Very Good Curry (quite authentic - maybe add less cayenne if spicy is too much for you)
Thai Pesto (so easy! Good with roasted bell peppers and chicken on noodles, also good on buttered toast)
Fish Tacos (First had these in San Diego. The white jalapeno sauce they have you make is my favorite part of this recipe. Also I really do buy a cheap can of beer to make it...without beer the fish batter isn't that great)
Peruvian 3 leches Hot Chocolate (Great because of the clove and cinnamon spices. I would avoid adding a whole can of sweetened condensed milk OR add more milk afterward so that the sweetness doesn't take over).
Banana Bread (The crust has the best taste. I replaced part of the banana with chopped apple once and it was also really good. A nice flexible recipe)
Carmely Pie Filling (The extra step of creating syrup beforehand is worth it).
Ice Cream with or without an ice cream maker (I made this many times in the summer months WITHOUT an ice cream maker. I just pulled it out of the freezer every thirty minutes to mix it up with a spatula till it became light and fluffy. I would love to get my hands on a vanilla bean but ended up using vanilla extract)
some recipes are destroyed by humidity, unavailable ingredients, etc. These recipes were less picky.
Hot Fudge (good for when chocolate chips are so hard to come by)
Chocolate Chip Cookies (the only version that works for me with the ingredients I have)
Roll dough for cinnamon rolls (Other recipes didn't work in Peru. My first version of these failed despite all the positive reviews...then I followed mom's bread-making advice and eyed the flour rather than adding flour measurements and made the only cinnamon rolls that I have made successfully in Peru. Her frosting was too much, though I liked the coffee maple flavor).
Teriaki Sauce (You can't come by that cheaply overseas)
Aldi's brownies (the only recipe that compares to the prize winning box version)
