    Drink this in place of plain old water--it's so simple, delicious, healthy and refreshing! I've added fresh lemon verbena along with the cucumber and lemon, as it's so plentiful in my garden right now. But any of the sweet herbs such as lemon balm, mint, or scented geranium leaves (try rose!) would also be wonderful. Or try rosemary, basil, lemon thyme or whatever herb or combination you fancy! I keep a jug of this refreshing beverage in the fridge all summer long. Each batch lasts a day or two--just keep in the fridge, and top off with more bottled water to replenish what you drink. After a couple of days you'll need to make a fresh batch. Enjoy! Recipe is easily doubled or tripled, for events etc.

    This dessert-salad is a blast from the past! It's basically a rice pudding with crushed pineapple, whipped cream, and maraschino cherries. Serve glorified rice as a salad to accompany your holiday meal. It's also a great dish to bring to potlucks or church picnics. Enjoy! Adapted from "Mennonite Girls Can Cook".

    This tart is wonderful picnic, potluck or party food--it's great served warm, cold or at room temperature! Simple and very tasty, I often make this tart when fresh zucchini are in season. For ease of preparation, I've used a crescent roll crust, but you may use a regular shortcrust pastry if you wish. You will need a 9 or 10-inch tart tin with a removable bottom. P.S. If you don't have a tart or quiche pan, just use a 9 x 13-inch baking dish.

    These are the BEST! I've been making this recipe for over 20 years now, and it's always a HIT with my family and friends! Great for BBQ's, potlucks, camping etc. Can be made in the oven or in the crockpot, and it freezes and reheats well.

    An incredibly fantastic chicken salad, perfect for summertime entertaining! Also great tossed with cooked bow-tie pasta, which makes a more substantial meal. This is so delicious, one of my all-time favorite chicken salads!! Slightly adapted from a Paula Deen recipe.

    Recipe #376680

    Fresh pineapple, grapes, kiwi and strawberries come together in this simply fresh fruit salad. Finish with a squeeze of fresh lemon or lime, and a drizzle of honey, if desired. For a party, would be great served with one of my fruit dips such as recipe #117822, recipe #124472, recipe #454595, or recipe #371727.

    Recipe #366253

    The perfect pasta salad for picnics, potlucks and gatherings. I've made this without the mayo, using the artichoke marinade in it's place, and it was equally fabulous and well received! Best served well chilled.

    Melt-in-your-mouth baked croissant sandwiches of thinly sliced ham, Swiss cheese, and a delicious buttery Dijon and poppy-seed sauce! Perfect for luncheons or entertaining, or packed into picnic lunches; great served warm, or at room temperature. Use as much ham and cheese as you like! Sandwiches are easily made up in advance and individually wrapped in foil, then refrigerated or frozen (use a freezer bag) for later use. Defrost overnight in the fridge, then bake as directed. Or, if frozen, bake at 300 F for about 1/2 hour until warm. If using mini-rolls, you may place them in a buttered baking dish and bake for the specified amount of time (no need to individually wrap)--I've also microwaved them. Enjoy!

    Recipe #363997

    The Auld Alliance is a series of historic friendship treaties between Scotland and France, first signed in 1295, as well as a traditional cheese and whisky pâté. This is the ORIGINAL simple cheese cream recipe, straight from the historic Overscaig B&B in Sutherland. Delicious served as a cream pâté for the first course, or at the end of a meal as a savoury. From the book "A Feast of Scotland" by Janet Warren. Prep time includes chill time.

    This is my version of both my mother's and German grandmother's potato salad. A family favorite that is a requirement at all gatherings! I hope you enjoy.

    I am a lemon fanatic! These exquisite lemony muffins make for a wonderful picnic or sack lunch treat. Meyer lemons are a cross between a true lemon and a mandarin or sweet orange. Recipe is from the L. A. Times.

    Recipe #291400

    My favorite pasta salad that I serve all summer long! Lovely with grilled chicken, a crusty bread or rolls and a glass of chilled white wine. I hope you enjoy! Note: Do try to use real French cornichons, if you can get them, as they really make this dish extra special.

    Recipe #290804

    The name says it all--this sandwich is big, thick and buttery, with a slight kick from the horseradish! Very quick and easy to prepare, makes a yummy lunch or simple dinner. Serve warm, with a pickle spear and chips, add a cup of soup or side salad for a more substantial meal. A side of Avocado Horseradish Spread recipe #284084 #284084 makes a tasty dipping sauce. May use sliced oven roasted or deli roast beef, or my Shredded Beef (Crock Pot) recipe #269126 #269126, pile it on as thickly as you wish, and I hope you enjoy!

    These festive pinwheel appetizers are perfect for the holidays, or anytime! Very popular with my family and guests---everyone really loves the great flavor combo of tangy chèvre cheese (or feta), sweet-tart cranberries, green onions, walnuts (or pistachios), and herbs. Easily made in advance, and I have frozen the logs (before slicing) with great results. Note: If you can't find chevre cheese, crumbled feta is equally good. A slight modification of recipe 146700-- thanks Wildflour!

    Recipe #278015

    These rich & chewy cookies are truly heavenly, a true family favorite. Hope you like them, too. Vanilla-chocolate scented batter and rich chocolate chips with a scattering of butterscotch morsels, hints of maple and coffee/mocha, plus chunks of walnuts really sets these cookies apart from the usual. ENJOY! Perfect with a cup of coffee or a glass of ice cold milk. Bet you can't eat just one! ;-) *Note: These cookies freeze really well, too. Simply place freshly baked cookies in an airtight container or double freezer bag (for best results freeze cookies the same day you bake them), and store in the freezer for up to one month.

    A longtime favorite sandwich of mine, since first trying the California Sandwich many moons ago at a little "healthfood" deli stand in Pacific Beach, California. This is my version. Use recipe #173076 for ease of preparation. Also good with thinly sliced tomatoes, in place of the cucumbers. I hope you enjoy!

    These are some great tasting, finger-lickin' ribs! Boil 'em and then grill 'em (or you may finish them in the oven, if you prefer), then serve 'em with extra Q sauce for dipping. Simple and easy recipe, with NO heating up of the kitchen from a hot oven, which is an added bonus especially in the hot summertime. Recipe is from my Southern born and raised sis-in-law, Patricia Ellen. Thought I'd share with y'all, I hope you enjoy. Serve with some corn bread or buttered rolls, beans and slaw.

    Recipe #226957

    Here's a wonderful light, quick and easy veggie dish that pairs beautifully with grilled chicken or fish, -or- you can make a meal of it just add some crusty bread, Parmesan cheese, and a nice bottle of wine -or- serve over penne pasta. May be served hot, warm or at room temperature. Use fresh or dried herbs, as you wish. Enjoy!

    A favorite spring and summertime drink of mine, using fresh or dried lavender and lemons from the garden. Wonderfully refreshing! May be served cold over ice, or hot with honey. Adapted from "The Ultimate Liquor-Free Drink Guide" by Sharon Tyler Herbst.

    A simple yet glorious dish for those abundant summer squash! I really prefer parsley with the fresh lemon zest, rather than the cilantro-mint combo.. feel free to use your favorite herbs. This dish can be panfried -or- cooked on the grill. Enjoy! Adapted from "Simple Pleasures" by Alfred Portale and Andrew Friedman.
