This chili relleno is really full of flavor! I have been making this dish since I came up with it in the 6th grade. It was a tough time when my dad was in the hospital and my mom was there with him taking care of him. I was trying to make meals interesting and different and came up with this one.
This is a recipe that has been part of the family for years but it has changed as people have added their own touch to it. The sauce in this one has become our own after Auntie Betty stepped into our lives and taught us how to make her sauce and even that became our own. So, put on some Frank Sinatra and head over.
When mom was little, she and her parents and moved from California to New Orlands they didn’t stay long but the flavors stayed with her. Whenever we talk about it, she tells us how one day a week they served red beans and rice at school and how she use to beg to buy lunch that day instead of taking it. Another favorite tale is how she kept finding the baby in the king cakes and had to bring the next one over and over. She’s passed on her love of those flavors to my sister and I, so we thought we would share our recipe for red beans and rice with you. It’s soooo good! I could eat this every day and never get tired of it.
This dish is a variation of Hoppin’ John a traditional New Years dish, except we traded black-eyed peas for pinto beans. This dish is SOOOO good! Super easy to make, and spicy which in our book is always a plus. We served it over a bed of rice but it would be great on its own or with chips.
Tortellini was a favorite when the girls were little. Our dear friend Nanette (called Nanu by our wee girls) introduced them to it with alfredo sauce and the girls began calling it Nanu pasta after our friend.
The holidays are always busy for us, so we like to use our slow cooker as much as possible! This recipe is super tasty and so easy to make! Filled with the rich earthy tones of rosemary, and oh so tender.
Here is a wonderful Mushroom Chicken recipe that is like the Mushroom Chicken at Panda Express Restaurant. It is one of Brianna’s best dishes. We love good Chinese food here at the Cottage, but Mrs. Cottage is super allergic to soy so we make it ourselves. This is an amazing dish, that is a great…
