You can use ground turkey and lowfat ingredients if you're watching your waistline. BF requests I make this almost every Sunday for football! Traditionally, these dips use a cup of guacamole on top of sour cream but I do not care for it so I leave it out. I included time to cook and cool beef in preperation time instead of cooking time.
This is a combination of different recipes I have tried over the past couple of years, keeping the elements I like the most. Everyone asks for the recipe so here it is! I like a spicy sauce. It's not too hot, but not sweet like most sauces out there. I'm still playing around with it, but I like how its going so far! ** update ** I have decided that perhaps pureeing the onions and garlic might be beneficial because most barbecue sauces don't have chunks of onion and garlic! I will work to change test and change this soon (3/2/10)
I accidently ROYALLY messed up the recipe to a marinade I had and had to fix it... and it turned out even better! You can obviously put any vegetables you like on the skewers, these are just my preference. Prep time is time to marinade.
My mom used to make this as a special treat when we were little. It is sort of like the Brie pastry but she never cared for Brie so she swapped it. It's so easy and pleases everyone. Very rich and creamy it is perfect for an appetizer or party. You can also buy havarti cheese with various spices and herbs mixed in to switch it up a little bit. The havarti with dill is divine. If the cheese leaks out, which it occasionally will even if you think you sealed it well, that is okay. Just scoop it off the pan and pile it on top. It is not as pretty but just as tasty ;) Prep time is to let pastry thaw. Enjoy!
These brownies are three layers,cheesecake topped with chocolate icing.They have been a favorite of my families for years now.You can see why we call them PMS brownies! chocolate chocolate chocolate.I usually end up making a double recipe because they dont last very long.
This is the best salsa recipe I've found so far and I've tried about a dozen. I got it from one of the local hospital cookbooks that are sold in my area. I changed it a bit and have been canning it for years. The reason I plant a garden is for this salsa. We would be lost without it. Hope you like it as much as we do. One of our members who is a food scientist took this salsa to work, tested the pH and found it measured under 4.0 (well within the safety limit for boiling water bath processing).
Great to have on hand for a quick lunch or appetizer. You can add any of your favourite pizza toppings to the mix, onions, peppers, sausage, cheddar cheese, etc. my family prefers plain old pepperoni--boring but they love it)
I got this recipe off of "Everyday Italian" with Giada De Laurentiis. TALK about GOOD!! I made it for my husband (who is a ONLY meat and potatoes kind of guy) and he flipped! It's even better than cheese sticks...and who can top that?
