Macaroni and Cheese
is truly the "cheesiest." There's no reason for you to ever make
macaroni and cheese from a packet, considering how easy this is. My
wife's clear favorite.
was my favorite recipe growing up. I've added more peppers and cheese
to it, making it a major cholesterol bomb. But it's yummy. It's not
Thanksgiving to me without this rice, cheese and peppers recipe.
is a light, somewhat exotic vegetarian dish. I want to boost the orange
is a cheap and tasty marinade, moderately spicy.
is my award-winning chili recipe. It's beefy, thick, heavy on the
beans and easy to control how spicy you make it. (I like it hot.)

that process yet.
is a vegetarian Mexican-esque lasagna, made with tortillas and veggies.
sounds odd, but's it's good. It's actually a creamy greenish sauce,
made with basil, parsley and garlic.
is my brother's quickie shortcut fetuccini alfredo. Very good, and
was my brother's favorite dish growing up: ground beef, spinach, mushrooms
and egg, all scrambled together in a skillet.
is a sinfully easy recipe (although Chili's will charge you $19 for
it), and I'm still tinkering with it. I'm gonna try it as the meat
in a fajita next.
Salad Dressing was
my Grandmother Ekmark's favorite dressing. As my Grandfather Ekmark
was wont to say, it'll put hair on your chest. Of course, he said
that about everything.
Noodles with Spicy Peanut Sauce
is a yummy no-meat dish. Easy to make and inexpensive. Gotta like
sauce is another vegetarian dish. Good, unusual and easy to make.
is a good, easy dish. It's something of a "comfort food" for me. It's
especially good with a good amount of hot sauce and served with iced
is the dressing I grew up with and still love.
