Sauce — Mild green chiles season this meaty pork stew. Serve it with rice
or as a burrito filling. This can also be served with tamales. This chile verde
is also good served with scrambled eggs.
Brenden's Easy Pork Ribs
— This is
one of the best and easiest ways to make baked barbecue ribs. Try using pineapple
or mango juice or other juices instead of the orange juice.
Iowa Spaghetti Sauce

were young, we looked forward to visiting my Aunt Anita in Muscatine, Iowa.
She always had this ready for us when we arrived. We fought over the mushrooms,

To Die For Beef Roast
— This is
one of the best roasts you will ever taste. Carrots, potatoes and celery can
also be added, if desired.

my own personal recipe, developed over the years. This makes a huge batch, enough
to eat and plenty for freezing for another day.
Vegetable Lo Mein
— If you don't
care for any of the vegetables listed, just omit them, and add your favorites
from the add-in list.
Vulture Mine Tostadas — This is
my own creation. I've been making it for a number of years. It's a good cooler
weather dinner. Instead of making the chili as instructed, you can use your
favorite chili and prepare the potatoes portion of the recipe, serving your
chili over the mashed potatoes.
Yankee Red Beans and Rice — This
is THE best recipe for red beans and rice that you will ever find. I think it's
much better than the Louisiana dish.
