I guess I am old school but cheese on seafood? No way! Italians say never to add parm or any cheese to scampi and I agree. I do like it with whole grain pasta though so I guess that is not that old school! LOL

I am all about easy when you entertain and the first time I cooked dinner for my soon to be in-laws, I decided to make these potatoes (never having seen Ina's recipe) with a roast whole tenderloin of beef and creamed spinach. I used fingerling potatoes and minced the garlic, tossed in the olive oil with salt and pepper and popped them in the oven...

The orange zest and using the juice instead of water is what makes this recipe special. So very very easy and so very very yummy.

You can't go wrong with this recipe and canned can never compare. This...

Absolute perfection! Added some diced left over ham and voila! Everyone raved and it was beautiful too. I made a double recipe (two of the 6 cup size and both were perfecto. Thanks Ina.

Very good and easy to tweak. Used stew beef and it was delish. Even though it is July, I was really in the mood for soup and did not want to heat up my kitchen so the crock pot was the way to go. Thanks for a great recipe!"

This is amazing and so easy too! I used kielbasa as I did not have any andouille and it worked great. Thanks Anne. This one is even Weight Watcher friendly if you can stop at one serving when divided into 8. Only 10 Points Plus per serving (for those of you who count that type of thing) A definite keeper!
