No Bake Strawberry Kool-Aid Pie

No Bake Strawberry Kool-Aid Pie

No Bake Strawberry Kool-Aid Pie

1 - 8 ounce tub of Cool Whip Whipped Topping
1 - 14 ounce can of Sweetened Condensed Milk
1 - packet of unsweetened strawberry or lemonade Kool -Aid (or flavor of your choice)
1 - 9 inch Graham Cracker or Nilla Wafer Pie Crust

Add all the ingredients together and pour into a prepared graham cracker crust. 

Chill about 2 hours then serve. 

The flavor possibilities are endless my favorites are: Lemon, strawberry, tropical fruit, orange, cherry and pink lemonade. 

You can also use a bit of food coloring for pies like lemonade. Fruit can be added if you prefer. 

Maybe some strawberries for strawberry pie or sliced bananas on the bottom of the crust and then pour strawberry flavor on top. You can experiment all you want.

Cooks Note: For the lemonade pie pictured above I added about 6 drops of yellow food coloring and about 1/4 cup regular sugar to tone down a bit of the tartness.

No Bake Chocolate Icebox Pie

From Recipe Lion
Chilling Time: 2 hr
  • 1/2 cups milk, divided
  • 1/3 cup sugar
  • 1/4 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 1 tablespoon butter or margarine
  • 7 tablespoons cornstarch
  • 6 tablespoons water
  • 3 extra-large egg yolks 
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1 cup miniature marshmallows
  • 1 baked 9-inch pie shell
  • 1 can or small tub of sweetened whipped cream
  • Chocolate curls or shavings
  1. Combine 2 cups milk, sugar, cocoa and butter in a medium-size saucepan.
  2. Bring just to a boil over medium heat. In a medium-size bowl, completely dissolve cornstarch in water.
  3. Stir in remaining 1/2 cup milk. Whisk in egg yolks and vanilla until well-blended.
  4. Gradually add egg yolk mixture to mixture in saucepan, stirring constantly with wire whisk.
  5. Cook, stirring constantly, about 2 minutes, or until mixture is thickened and smooth.
  6. Add marshmallows and stir until they melt and mixture is smooth. Pour into pie shell. Press plastic wrap directly on filling. Refrigerate at least 2 hours.
  7. Remove plastic wrap. Top with whipped cream and garnish with chocolate curls.  
  • Pressing plastic wrap directly onto hot pie filling prevents a tough, dry "skin" from forming as pie cools.
  • Use a potato peeler to make decorative chocolate curls or shavings from a chocolate candy bar.

A RECIPE FOR YOU TODAY - Quesadillas with Meat

A plate of meat quesadillas

Quesadillas de Carne



* 8 big flour tortillas (around 10 inches diameter)
* 1 lb. Thin slices of beef (as for fondue), sliced in 1 inch strips
* 1 onion, chopped
* 2 jalapeño chiles, chopped
* 3 medium tomatoes, chopped into half inch pieces
* Cheddar cheese, grated
* 2 avocados
* Sour Cream
* Salt, pepper, cumin, seasoning salsa when serving

1) The first step is to heat oil in a large skillet and fry the chopped onions for 2 minutes.

2) Mix in the meat and the chiles with the onions and mix well so that the meat is well combined with the vegetables; only the strips of meat have to stay flat to go well in our quesadillas. Season with salt, pepper and all the other spices in the list.

3) Once the meat is well cooked, test seasoning and add more spices if necessary. Add the chopped tomatoes until they are slightly cooked. Do not overcook them so that the tomatoes do not become too liquid.

4) Pull away the skillet from the stove and start preparing the quesadillas, putting some meat in the middle of the tortilla, then a good amount of grated cheese and then fold each one in two.

5) Now that they all ready, we will fry them in a large skillet, if possible 2 by 2, pressing over them so you make them as flat as possible. I would cook them with a little hot oil, until they brown nicely.

6) Once browned on both sides, serve with mashed chopped avocados spread on top and some sour cream on the side...

* 2 lb. Boneless skinless chicken breasts or thighs
* 1 lb. Mexican Style Chorizo Sausages
* 1 Bell pepper
* 1 onion
* Chicken Bouillon
* 1 teaspoon cumin
* Ground black pepper and salt
* 2 cloves garlic
* Olive oil
* 1 red tomato
* 1 bunch Green onions
* Sharp white cheese
* 2 Potatoes, peeled and diced into small cubes
* Refried beans, seasoned
* Some onions, marinated in vinegar and cilantro
* Corn Tortillas


1) We start making this choripollo, we slice the chicken in half inch strips, peeling the skin and making a few cuts in the flesh. Season the chicken parts with pepper, cumin, chicken broth and a little salt.

2) Cut the tomato and dice the onion; separately slice the green onions in 1/2 inch sections. Pour some olive oil in a pan and heat it up, then, at medium setting fry the onion bits until brown, but careful not to burn them. Once the onions are browned add the diced tomato.

3) Press in the garlic and simmer everything together for 1 minute. Now place the seasoned chicken parts to start cooking them, making them simmer about 30 minutes or so, until cooked.

4) Once the chicken is almost cooked add the sliced chorizo sausages, potato cubes and vegetables (bell pepper, green onions, onions and a sprig of basil) and simmer over medium low heat setting, so that the taste of sausage and vegetables mix together, or more or less 20 minutes.

It is the combination of sausages with vegetables and seasonings that will give the tender chicken its special taste which you now pour on a plate, ladle some refried beens and rice on the side; sprinkle some crumbled cheese over the refried beans, more cheese over the Chori-Pollo and some marinated onions (if desired).

2) Pour this guajillo-tomato mixture in the roasting pan you are about to use; add the chopped cilantro, and finally put the pork in. We want the level of liquid to read about 2/3 of the height of the meat cut, or more.
3) Cook in the oven, at the temperature setting of 300 °F for 6 hours. After 3 hours open the pan and flip your pieces of meat.
4) Pull the pork pieces out of the pan, and using two forks shred the meat and discard the chunks of fat.
5) Now using a pan over a burner set to Med-high, pour in the oil and the shredded meat. Wait for the meat to heat back up, then gradually ladle the sauce from the roasting pan over the meat: gradually so the shredded meat absorbs the sauce.
6) Heat up your tortillas in the microwave, wrapping them up in cloth.
7) Now we prepare the onions, mixing them with the vinegar and more chopped cilantro, to taste.
Your dish is ready! Serve the tacos by preparing them with some marinated onions... Enjoy your meal!

A RECIPE FOR YOU TODAY - Cochinita Pibil

Cochinita Pibil
This is a Mayan recipe for an incredibly delicious "pulled pork" for tacos. We make this at the restaurant I work at, Ciudad D.F. in Dallas, but I actually like this recipe better. It comes from 'Tacos' The Santa Fe School of Cooking Series cookbook. Achiote paste and Banana leaves can be found in your local Hispanic Market. Trust me on this the Habaneroes only add flavor, there is no heat at all. If you want it spicy add more and leave the seeds in. Roasting them first also adds more spice.
3 1/2 pounds
1 (4 -6 lb) boneless pork butt, trimmed but with some fat remaining (4 to 6 pounds)
3 ounces achiote paste
12 garlic cloves
1 medium onion, coarsely chopped
10 allspice berries, cracked or 2 teaspoons allspice, ground
2 tablespoons dried Mexican oregano, toasted
1 teaspoon cumin seed, toasted
2 teaspoons cracked black pepper
6 bay leaves
2 tablespoons Worcestershire sauce
2 limes, juice of
1 orange, juice of
1⁄4 cup apple cider vinegar
2 habaneros, fresh, stems and seeds removed
2 tablespoons vegetable oil
3 tablespoons kosher salt
1 lb banana leaf
Place pork in a freezer bag or other large plastic bag, strong trash bags work well.
Dry toast Mexican oregano & cumin seeds in a hot, heavy skillet one at a time, stirring or shaking the pan to prevent burning. They are done when color has deepen and little wisps of smoke are formed.
Mix all the ingredients, except banana leaves in a blender or food processor (break up the Achiote Paste before adding) Pour in with pork, seal bag, and distribute well to coat meat. Be careful not to get on hands it will stain them red! ( I used a meat injector also).
Marinate at least 2 hours or overnight in frig, overnight is best.
If banana leaves are frozen, thaw and rinse well in cool water. If you can use fresh banana leaves you will need to wilt them over the burner on your stove, be careful not to burn them. Heat them until they are pliable.
Line the bottom of a heavy roasting pan with 2 or 3 banana leaves, long enough to be able to fold over the roast covering it completely. They should over lap the pan on all sides.
Remove pork roast from the bag and reserve marinade.
Place pork fat side up on the banana leaves in the pan, pour marinade over top of the meat.
Place 3 or 4 more banana leaves over the pork and inside the bottom leaves. Pull bottom leaves around meat and tie with cooking string around this package form both directions to secure.
Place either in the grill with lid down or in the oven at 325°F for 3-1/2 to 4 hours until meat is tender. Leaves may be almost black on the outside when finished. When we used the smoker it took close to 8 hours.
Allow to cool for 20 minutes; then slit open banana leaves with knife or scissors, (be careful of the steam) and remove pork.
Serve with fresh corn tortillas, salsa of your choice, red pickled onions, guacamole, chopped cilantro, etc.

A RECIPE FOR YOU FOR TODAY - Celtic Cabbage Rolls

Celtic Cabbage Rolls
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 1/2 cup uncooked brown rice
  • 10 cabbage leaves (Green or red are both fine; this recipe uses green for the St. Pat’s theme.)

  • 1/4 cup chopped onion
  • 1/3 cup chopped fresh parsley
  • 1 egg
  • 1 tsp. salt
  • 1 tsp. black pepper
  • 1 Tbsp. bread crumbs
  • 8 oz. V8 juice (low sodium)
1. Start by preparing the rice. Follow package directions.
2. While the rice is simmering, pull out a second pot, this one much larger. Fill with water and boil. Add the cabbage leaves and cook for 2-4 minutes. They should be slightly softened. Then remove leaves from pot and place on a high-walled glass casserole dish.
3. When the rice is cooked, combine 1 cup of it in a bowl along with the ground turkey,  onion, egg, salt, pepper, 2 Tbsp. of V8 juice, and the bread crumbs. Stir and make sure all your ingredients have combined evenly.
4. Dole out the ground turkey mixture into the cabbage leaves. Roll them tightly, tucking in the edges. I always fill my casserole dish from edge to edge, but if you are not packing your rolls so tightly, you can use a toothpicks to help secure them.
5. Pour the rest of the V8 juice over the cabbage rolls.

A RECIPE FOR YOU TODAY - Easy Breakfast Cheese Danish

Easy Breakfast Cheese Danish
2 cans ready to use refrigerated crescent rolls
2 8-ounce packages cream cheese 
1 cup sugar 
1 teaspoon vanilla extract 
1 egg 
1 egg white 

1/2 cup powdered sugar 
2 Tablespoons milk 
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract

Method: Preheat oven to 350* degrees and grease a... 13X9-inch baking pan. 

Lay a pack of crescent rolls in the pan and pinch the openings together. 

Beat the cream cheese, sugar, vanilla, and egg together until smooth. 

Spread the mixture over the crescent rolls evenly and then lay the second pack of crescent rolls on top of the cheese mixture and brush with egg white. 

Bake for 35-45 minutes until the top is golden brown. 

Top with glaze after cooling for 20 minutes.

Kitchen Notes: YOU can make this danish using low fat cream cheese and splenda (sugar substitute) and it will be delicious! 

Also, the amount of filling the original recipe calls for makes a VERY heavily filled danish.YOU can half the filling using 1 package of cream cheese, 1/2 cup of sugar, 1 whole egg, and a 1/2 teaspoon of vanilla extract and it will still be very good. If you use the half filling method, bake for closer to 30-35 minutes.

Antes de comenzar a preparar la tortilla de espinacas, no olvides lavar bien todas las hojas del atado de espinaca, pues es probable que tengan algo de tierra entre ellas. Una simple lavada con abundante agua del grifo bastará para que estén limpias.
Cuando vayas a pelar el diente de ajo, no olvides seguir las instrucciones que te hemos enseñado para pelar el ajo, verás cuánto más sencillo y rápido es hacerlo de esta manera.
No olvides revolver de vez en cuando mientras se cocina la espinaca para que ésta no se pegue al fondo ni se queme.
El agua que reste de cocinar la espinaca, puedes usarla para preparar un caldo o para darle un toque de sabor a otra preparación.
Acompaña esta tortilla de espinaca con una ensalada de tomate con vinagreta de perejil.

1 tomate grande
1/4 cebolla picada

Cuece el tomate (con o sin cáscara) en una olla con un poco de agua. Después pícalo un poco y sáltalo en una sartén con un poco de aceite junto a la cebolla. Condimenta con sal y pimienta y revuelve bien. Apaga el fuego. Aparte, bate los 3 huevos con otro poco de sal y pimienta. Luego llévalos al fuego en una sartén con un poco de aceite caliente y, cuando estén empezando a cocinarse, échales encima el preparado de tomate y cebolla sin revolver, y dóblale encima uno o los dos extremos de la tortilla para darle forma de omelette o de arrollado. Deja unos minutos más, pero sin dejar que se queme el fondo, y sírvelo.

Lavar la espinaca perfectamente y retirarle las pencas. Calentar una sartén limpia y sin aceite y colocar las espinacas por 2 minutos, tapar la sartén. Repetir este paso con toda la cantidad de verdura.
Al cabo de dos minutos, la espinaca habrá disminuído su tamaño, quedando así. Es importante retirar la espinaca al cabo de dos minutos -o hasta que haya disminuído su volumen- porque de esta forma conservará todos sus nutrientes.
Picar la cebolla en pequeños cuadrados, cortando primero tiras y luego rotándolas 90° para cortar los dados. Colocar un poco de aceite en una sartén limpia y volcar la cebolla. Dejar que se cocine hasta que esté dorada en los bordes y más transparente en el centro. Reservar.
A la espinaca ya cocida, colocarla en un colador con un plato debajo, para que largue toda el agua que contiene en su interior. Si es necesario, ayudarse con una espátula ejerciendo presión para que retire el agua más rapidamente.
Romper los huevos de a uno y colocarlos en un bol. Agregar los condimentos que son sal, pimienta y nuez moscada a gusto según lo prefiera tu paladar -si deseas puedes agregar más condimentos saborizando aún más la preparación-. Mezclar bien los huevos, esto será el ligue de la preparación.
Agregar la espinaca ya escurrida y la cebolla a los huevos. Mezclar bien uniendo todos los ingredientes.
Volcar la preparación en una sartén y distribuir bien para que la tortilla quede pareja. Esperar unos minutos hasta que se cocine.
Una vez que la parte inferior se cocinó, dar vuelta la tortilla y cocinar del otro lado. Cuando esté perfectamente cocida, retirar del fuego y servir.
Si no quieres que la preparación quede tan amarga, puedes suplantar una planta de acelga por una de espinaca.
