Recipes

Some of these recipes are old family favorites, some I created. They have many ethnic sources. Some are more technique than recipe.

Each recipe should open in a new window when you click on the link to it. The is so you can print them without having to print navigational links. You can close this new window when you are done with it.

I don't always tell you to add salt and pepper, consider these to be optional in all appropriate dishes.

Definitions: a quickor fast oven = about 425-450 F., a moderate or medium oven = about 350-375 F., a slow oven = 250-300 F.

I am not always consistent in using the same abbreviations. Here are some that I use: T=tablespoon, t=teaspoon, c=cup, tbsp=tablespoon, tsp=teaspoon.
