Nutty and flavorful, this dip will go in a minute. This recipe does not require baking. Because grated cheese measurements vary, adjust dip to desired consistency; add more liquid if too dry, more cheese if too wet.
A very old recipe from "The Art of Seasoning" an interesting little booklet outlining the origin and history of Tabasco Pepper Sauce. Tabasco Sauce was named after an Indian word meaning "land where the soil is humid." This aptly describes the small area where the peppers grow best. Since 1868, this word, TABASCO, has been used as the exclusive trademark for the pepper sauce made by the McIlhenny Company, registered in the United States patent office and in the patent offices of most foreign countries.
A Saskatchewan Roughrider recipe that never fails to please. Surprisingly this ketchup based sauce empties long before the other offerings and always an empty platter. So simple ... so good! I love this sauce using our Canadian Diva's Recipe#58094. Recipe courtesy of Tom Whitehouse. Use freshly prepared meatballs or prepared frozen. These can be made and ready to use at a moments notice!
Guests will be surprised to find that these appetizers, studded with nuts and bejeweled with pepper jelly are not to be saved for dessert. This is one cookie recipe that should certainly be paired with cocktails.
DARLING recipe received in an email from makinglifebetter.com. This is SO delicious and super fast to throw together. You totally don't have to make them into hearts, but they do make a great meal for your anniversary or for Valentines Day :) I have changed the recipe a bit, as you don't need near the butter they called for nor do you need near amount of sauce for the shrimp. I also used sugar free jelly with no problems!
These are a carb free chip that I found while looking for recipes for a party for a friend with special diet needs. I made a batch of these to see how they tasted and my family ate them all up. So I made a second batch for the party.
This is a favorite with Italian-style grub.The recipe comes from Carrabba's Restaurant. They serve the spices on a small plate and the waiter adds olive oil, then you are set to dip your bread. YUM YUM! TIP: Chop all spices in small chopper and store them in a small container in the refrigerator, since a little goes a long way -- that way you can have it anytime.
My aunt has been making this wonderful bread for years. You can make it ahead and serve it cold. It makes a great appetizer, and is wonderful left over. It also travels well, and is a hit at pot-lucks!
This beet hummus recipe comes from Elise over at simplyrecipes.com. She is one of my favorite bloggers and I was lucky enough to hear her speak at the last Blogher Food conference. I myself, would not have ever thought of combining beets into a hummus type dip, so, leave it to Elise. She is the inspiration for me on many fronts.
Adapted from a recipe from Tyler Florence. This is a sophisticated-looking appetizer just bursting with flavor. It's a bit time consuming to make, but worth it. When I made it, I ran out of ground nuts, yet still had cheese left over. I chopped up a few grapes, and sprinkled some chopped walnut pieces in the cheese and mixed it up for a nice bleu cheese spread, as a bonus. Prep and cook time includes chilling time.
This is from a great little restaurant in South Louisiana. I begged and begged for the recipe until they finally caved in.
***Edited on June 9, 2008--I would suggest tasting the dip before adding any salt. Depending on your mayo, you may or may not need any***
