1339. Cheesy Baked Tomato Rice

I forget where I picked up the idea for this recipe but I do recall it was described as Indianish, which I though was intriguing. Besides the green chilli, there is not much Indian about this tomato rice, which is presented more as a gratin complete with broiled melty cheese on top.

What's not to love about that special combination of a biscuit crust, cream cheese filling, and tangy raspberry topping? This raspberry cheesecake pie is made all the more achievable by going down the no-bake route.

1337. Cajun Burger

Once you've mastered that the perfect burger is simply minimally-handled minced meat seasoned with salt thrown over a high flame, the customization options are endless. It all started with A Simple Burger. From there we went on to a Roquefort version, and another Chilli-Cheese one.

1336. Golden Milk

Golden milk is so 2018, but seriously, who invented fashionable foods in the first place? Golden milk takes its color from turmeric, the recently re-discovered superfood great for the heart and brain.

1335. Hot Sugar Crust Apple Bake

This apple bake needs to have the sugar crust highlighted as it gives it not only flavor, but a truly unique texture. The apples under the crust bake up to a candy, and are really irresistible with the lemon zest.

1333. Berry Um Ali

Bread pudding is a classic favorite in many cultures, with minor flavoring differences to suit transcending tastes across borders. In fact, in this aspect it is much like rice pudding. Cardamon for a Middle Eastern flair, dulce de leche for Latino palates, berry for Europeans, and nutty for an African touch.

1332. Moussaka, Take 2.

I had posted a moussaka recipe way back in 2012 here, and decided it was time for a re-make. This version I dare say is simpler, but most notably it has the addition of potatoes. Two things worthy of noting: to us Arabs, moussaka is an Egyptian dish, not a Greek one.

1331. Rangina Bars

Rangina is quickly becoming prominent on MCW with all its variations. At the most basic level, rangina are fresh soft dates topped with fried flour. I see how it may sound strange, but you need to see how it can out-of-this-world.

Taco-flavored minced meat and cooked pasta are folded in a cheesy beschamel sauce for the best Mexican-inspired pasta there is.

1329. Chocolate Truffle Cake

The number of chocolate cakes on MCW deserves a compilation post. Another chocolate cake recipe is probably not warranted, but can you even say that about chocolate cakes? This one just might be second to the most decadent of the lot.

1328. Puffed Meat Pastries

This is something to make when you don't know what to make. Got puffed pastry and minced meat in the freezer? You're set to go. The wonderful thing here is that you can use any minced meat recipe you may favor: kubba filling, taco-spiced, bolognese... whatever you may have on hand or have an affinity to will work.
