Portuguese-American and Other Favorites

Hosted by Beth M.
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!

Have you got a recipe called Favish?

A recipe for beans is needed, and a friend of mine said she would get her Gram's recipe. I had a recipe for them from another friend, but I can't locate it in all the places I have,there's a file drawer of 3X5 cards somewhere in a closet. Now that I use the computer the other system is gathering dust..

Bread Pudding for Breakfast! WHAT DO YOU LOVE TO EAT?

Sometimes you can resist, this morning it was delicious cold with my hot cup of coffee.


What do you love from breakfast? I also remember a friend who cooked eggs and chourico, for us when stayed overnight.

Pudim de morango?

How do you say Bread Pudding with strawberries and rhubarb?

"pudim de morango ???" =custard with strawberries &

I used the Portuguese Sweet Bread, with fresh strawberries and rhubarb, and it came out so light and fluffy, with a sweet and tangy flavor.

It has baking creme, by Philadelphia instead of milk, and I used fresh eggs from my son's small farm.

I would love to join your group. I lived in a Portuguese neighborhood for many years and love portuguese food. I would love to see your recipes and share mine. I will post my Pasteis de Nata recipe. LOL

Welcome to new members, even if you are not "Portuguese"

If you like to try something different, or have recipes that you can share which came from others of Portuguese origin, I want to see them!

Favorite foods remind me of my good friends

This area I live in has many Portuguese people, and their foods are the kind that were hearty and wholesome, made for a large family usually. My first boy friend,Eddie,invited me to his home for supper, and his mom made Kale Soup. I have enjoyed it many times, some variations include a little tomatoe paste for color; and some add other kinds of beans.

I would like to have a good fish dinner recipe, but not with eel, which was also something served by Eddie's mom. It was a first and a last time I encountered eel for supper!

I hope to hear from lots of people!
