This is a delicious cheese dip that my daughter makes. The cream cheese gives it a wonderful consistency. All the fresh ingredients make this a dip that you will be asked for over and over again! Please note I have put "to taste" on alot of the ingredients as it depends on how big your bunch of veggies are. If you actually get lucky enough to have any left it keeps in the fridge a good while and reheats great. I usually serve/take this dip in a crockpot so it stays warm.
Take my advice, make lots of this dip. The recipe may say that it is for 4 servings, but I have seen sophisticated friends turn barbaric over a bowl of this stuff. It's very sweet and goes great with tart apples.
From Emeril Lagasse Emeril Live show, this has gotten great reviews! This is served at the Marley Cafe in Orlando, Florida. This is traditionally served with cucumber sauce and yucca fries(you can sub french fries). I have given the recipe for the sauce. Prep time includes marinating overnight. This is also popular in Florida.
Mix this up in the morning before you leave for work. When you get home in the evening, take it from the freezer and let it thaw slightly while you change clothes or start dinner. Especially refreshing on hot summer evenings.
I like this recipe because it uses already prepared ingredients found in your produce department with the packaged salad greens. Great egg rolls without all the work for those after work meals. (of which I need often) Leave the chicken out for vegetarian egg rolls or substitute shrimp for seafood eggrolls. Keep the oil hot and fry quickly to keep egg rolls from becoming greasy. They only need to brown and crisp, not cook. Frying only 3 or 4 at a time while rolling the others will make it easier to keep track of both the rolling and frying at the same time (unless you have a helper in your kitchen to do one or the other). Serve with my easy sweet and sour dipping sauce (recipe #112947) for a real taste treat. Since preparation (rolling) and cook time can be done at the same time, times are approximate. Recipe came from my friend and co-worker, Teri. Thank you Teri!
The gauntlet was thrown when my daughter's future in-law's Swedish Meatballs recipe was declared to be "the best in the world." Here's my valiant attempt to uphold the honor from OUR side of the family. A good electric skillet makes this as easy as can be. (I often DOUBLE the gravy recipe, and add a bit of dill weed, nutmeg, and caraway seeds 8-)
A tasty meal to throw together to use leftover veggies. It makes a great lunch, dinner or even a snack. You can use different veggies to your liking. This recipe is for 2 melts, but you can adjust for more servings.
A Low Fat Southwestern treat. I found this hearty appetizer recipe in a magazine a few years ago, and it is one of our family's favorites. Not only is this very easy to make, but the fact that it is made in a slow cooker allows me to prep it earlier in the day before things get too hectic. I think you'll enjoy this as well. Leftovers are yummy spooned over a baked potato.
This recipe was altered by me and originated from Todd Wilbur's Top Secret Recipe Book (I have every one of his books). He also has a website (check it out!). I was looking for a copycat recipe for R. Lobster's Cheddar Cheese biscuits and came upon this variation...which I personally like more than the biscuit recipe I was trying to locate. You can make biscuits with this, but I spread the mixture out to be more like a pizza and it saved me time and was more fun to eat. I think these would also make really neat appetizers if you used small spoons of the dough on the baking sheet...but you would have to adjust cooking time. I will be making this recipe over and over because it was so easy and tasted like I fussed all night! You will find my recipe long, but that's because my directions are thorough...the prep time/work time for this recipe is only 10 minutes...though that may be because I make it often!
