Simple to prepare chicken salad that I make up for sandwiches. We never have left-over chicken, so I microwave chicken just to make this. Very basic but very good! P.S. Celery is listed as optional because my husband hates it...if I am only making this for him, I leave it out! :)
This recipe captures the distinct flavor of Mexico in a delicious appetizer. The golden brown pastry brims with the mild, fire-roasted flavor of diced green chiles and the smooth texture of cream cheese.
This is a quick, easy and delicious appetizer and best yet, the topping can be made ahead and refrigerated. I think the recipe originated from Southern Living but it was given to me by a friend -- just had to have it after trying it!
this is so wonderful with an italian menu. a restaraunt in our town serves this. last year on my birthday i asked the waitress if i could take some home with me-they normally don't let you take it home. well anyway i figured out what was in it and it is great!!
This is an easy, simple recipe that goes over well. You can make the filling ahead and scoop out the tomatoes well ahead of time but do not fill the tomatoes until just before serving. I like to add the lettuce to the filling just before filling the tomato however the original recipe said you can mix it in when you combine all the stuffing ingredients. Looks great on a buffet table
A really popular Aussie snack which turns up at parties, picnics and for lunches. I used to make 8 dozen of these 5 days a week for about 2 years! Season these to taste-Australian sausage mince is quite salty, so I don't put too much.
Crisp little chips of pepperoni that are an excellent snack with beer or even a glass of wine. They are quite addictive. From World Wide Recipes.
UPDATE (10-27-06): I have always purchased Hormell pepperoni, but recently tried an off brand and found that they burned very quickly when I baked them. The length of time for baking will depend on your oven and the pepperoni. You will need to adjust to find the proper time for you...it could be up to 20 minutes.
When our grandkids sleep over, we usually watch a movie; they like seasoned popcorn but we pefer the plain old buttered stuff! Thanx to Martha Stewart, we now spend a little quality time in the kitchen as each child "cooks up" a mix before "show time"! All of the variations can be doubled or tripled, depending on the size of the container you plan to use. The Italian mixture should be kept in the refrigerator, as it contains fresh cheese.
