This is a home-style South Indian shrimp curry recipe from my husband's family. It is simple and quick to make. It contains no coconut so is not sweet, just mostly juicy and as hot as you like it. Serve with basmati rice or an Indian flatbread.
Tri-tip is a California central coast specialty, claimed to have been first introduced in the Santa Maria area. This recipe adds dill, sage, and rosemary to the basic Santa Maria recipe. Tri tip is a flavorful cut of meat that really shines when it is slow grill-roasted or smoked. Great with a green salad or layered onto French bread for a juicy beef sandwich.
Spicy seasoned sausage mixed with cream cheese and wrapped in crescent rolls. For a different variation, add thin slices of pepperoni on the bottom of crescent roll before the sausage mixture and shred cheddar on top of sausage; roll pastry over.
The flavor of this basic bread stuffing is boosted by the addition of several cups of chopped celery. This recipe yields enough dressing to stuff a 10-15 pound turkey. Bake the dressing that doesn't fit in the cavity of the turkey in a buttered baking dish. Try putting the stuffing under the skin of the breast. It makes the turkey very moist!
