Oats are full of protein and taste great.
I have always LOVED your recipes! I got hooked when I saw your fried rice recipe years ago.
Can you make one for Braciole? There are so many variations of this recipe that I would love to see which one you would make. Some use flank steak, skirt steak or whatever. Some use bread crumbs (or not), use pine nuts (or not), use raisins (or not), use chopped carrots and celery (or not)….it just goes on and on. Most of them say it is better the next day, like chili or spaghetti sauces are.
I first heard of Braciole when watching an Everybody Loves Raymond episode where his wife, who is notoriously a lousy cook, just makes the whole family Cream over her Braciole…except her mother-in-law of course.
Thank and keep up the good work and I hope you success continues forever!!! Kindest regards, Reykjaviky :)

Hmmm. Braciole, huh? I’ll have to see what I can come up with! Thank you so much for your sweet comment and for being hooked since the fried rice – that was the first one LOL! You rock!
hi Betty..looks yummy…i have a question> how about if we don;t have fancy mixer like yours. what can we do? thx u.
Average Betty says
You don’t need a “fancy” mixer at all… a regular electric hand mixer will work too– if you don’t have an electric hand mixer, just use a sturdy wooden spoon. Let your butter soften to room temperature for easier mixing. It just requires a little more elbow grease.
