We threw these together to go with a roast pork meal(the pork was very dry)so voila! I didn't use the cloves, personal preference, next time am going to make 2 batches and one of them with cloves(often used in Caribbean cooking). They were delicious!
This recipe just caught my eye while I was reading Cooking Light, Sept/07, issue. Have taken the liberty of adding some toasted almonds and crushed red pepper flakes to an otherwise wonderful recipe. It was awesome! UPDATE: Made this again & had no almonds but did have cashews, so I used them and they were even better! 09/15/07
I came up with this recipe to use up the number of cucuzzas I have growing in my garden. This spicy condiment is perfect on hot dogs or hamburgers. The relish can also be poured over a block of cream cheese and served as a dip with chips or crackers.
Stoli for Stolichnaya Vodka and Doli for pineapple. Put them together and you've got one potent drink.
Depending on the size of your container you may need more (or less) of both ingredients. The idea is to completely cover the pineapple with vodka.

Prepare as directed. Spoon over pound cake slices and assorted fresh berries. Garnish with small dollops of additional thawed COOL WHIP Whipped Topping and fresh mint sprigs just before serving.
Growing up, this is what my mom was famous for at church. No matter the occasion, she was always asked to bring a dish of almond rice. It has a bit more salt and fat to it than newer recipes. It would easily adapt to crock pot cooking or vegetarian requirements.
These are from my childhood. My mom made them and called them English Toffee. Because the chocolate chips and nuts are sprinkled on the top, you can make multiple kinds of cookies in a flash. She would split the pan in half and do 1/2 chocolate chip and 1/2 butterscotch chip. Then she would split it the other direction and do 1/2 with nuts and 1/2 without. How they are topped is only limited by your imagination. They really don't have any baking powder or soda in them.
These delicious little frittatas are baked in muffin tins. It's a great way to cook eggs for a lot of people. They're like little quiches without the crust. Frittatas are so easy and flexible - you can use any omlette or quiche ingredients in these. Breakfast for two: I cut the eggs, milk, and pepper in half, skipped the salt, used 1/4 cup crispy proscuitto (Recipe #239502) with 1/4 cup jack cheese and baked in a regular size muffin pan (6 frittatas) for about 15 minutes. Yummy!
A french toast style sandwich that is baked so you can cook several at one time. It's a great idea for breakfast, and It's a pretty flexible recipe. You can use any kind of bread, add turkey and another layer of bread to make a triple decker, and even add mustard.
Courtesy of the Hershey's Kitchen, with a couple of my personal additions. Don't be scared by the cocoa powder! It adds a nice richness to the sandwiches - but it doesn't make them taste like chocolate :) Use the smaller amount of chili powder for less spicy "joes" :)
A variation of the ultimate lazy appetizer recipe from the 80's, when you threw shrimp over a block of cream cheese, poured cocktail sauce over it, and served with crackers. I do it this way for a bigger group and also because it's easier to spread on crackers. Note: Many times I use 3 cans (or 1/4 lb. fresh) shrimp, so I can satisfy greedy shrimp lovers who are there. (Note: You may not need to use the whole bottle of cocktail sauce -- use your judgement adding enough to cream cheese to make it spreading consistency and adding a layer of sauce on top of the mixture.)
