Group active since Sat, May 14, 2011
The variety of recipes being included come from many cultures, not just Portuguese and American, so I have made a change in the group name to reflect these. There are many countries represented here. I welcome all to share their family favorites and any background information to go with the recipes. Join us!
We're off the coast of Cape Cod, and it's cooler because the ocean is still very chilly in February; but it's 64 degrees outside this afternoon. What a welcome change it is, and everyone is cheerful as a result. School children here will be on vacation after today for a week, and so many locals take vacation time and go South for warm beaches or North for ski vacations. We'll enjoy a "staycation".
What are you going to make for your Valentine? There are so many great looking recipes to try, and I keep pinching the sweet ones! Here's one that I'd love to taste first. Blueberry Cheese Coffee Cake By Nor
What's cooking at your house? I'll go through my recipes and decide what I'll bake. We're having buffalo chicken wings! I think I want cake or brownies for dessert, to go with ice cream. Football on television always makes me think of good eats!
When I think of Winter it usually is the dreaded month of February. The shortest month is somehow long and usually includes heavy snow here in Massachusetts, so I appreciate the sight of Robins in the yard and the thin layer of snow melted by mid-morning. Maybe I will have a change of attitude about February and think Spring since the Robins are here!
The recipe calls for asparagus, but I didn't have it on-hand and the grocery store is too far to make a special trip to get it. So I substituted another green vegetable, and it was a delicious meal. Here's a picture. I had frozen broccoli and it was in a microwaveable bag, so I cooked it that way first. Then I followed the recipe as printed. Baked Fish With Asparagus
If you loved fish, this was made with codfish, and it is a recipe worth pinching and making!
