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!
I had a step-father who served in World War II, and two brothers who were in the Navy and flew during the mid-late sixties, during the Vietnam War. So I hold them up in prayer today, both the living and the dead, and I salute those serving for our sake where-ever they may be stationed. Thanks to all of those brave and loyal people, and their families who are facing each day without them nearby.

This little group is composed of people from the Atlantic to the Pacific! I love meeting you all and I am fascinated by the locations where everyone lives!
You may have Portuguese family, friends or neighbors who have shared their recipes, and you just might love the food. So join in and let's have a taste of Portugal.

We were spending a weekend with two other couples,at New Year's time many years ago,and stopped in to visit with a fourth couple. Our host went to his "wine cellar" and brought out "a very old and dusty bottle of wine, and described it to us,saying it was special". We did all enjoy the wine and we shared our comments. At the end of that weekend, three of the couples returned to the home of the Portuguese couple's home, and the husband invited us in and offered us wine. He got out this large glass jug from under his kitchen counter, and poured each of us a drink; explaining that "it was home-made". We all sipped it, and remarked "this is amazing, just as good as the special and old wine we had the day before!" It was about $12.00 a jug vs.$$$.
