This recipe was originally submitted by Mean Chef (IHHDRO). I adopted it after he left the site. The text from my original review stated, "Excellent guacamole! I didn't have any serrano peppers on hand and subbed a some finely diced jalapenos. The flavor of this was so fresh and wonderful. I love avocados and this was guac at its best." I go through phases of craving guacamole and have tried other recipes, but always come back to this one.
This simple recipe was found on the internet at sweetpotato.org. Half of a 15-ounce can of yams (drained & mashed) can be substituted for the fresh ones. Preparation time does not include the time needed to cook the sweet potatoes.
A great appetizer, tasty. A nice blend of flavors You may make the mushroom fill ahead and freeze it. I usually split it into 4 bags so I can make only a dozen at a time. Thaw from frozen and continue to make the bread nappies.
I took this spread to a recent party, and it got rave reviews. Everyone loved it, and it's pretty simple to make. I recommend making it a few hours before serving so the flavors get to blend. I served with additional cocktail sauce on the side because as it gets eaten, the top layer of sauce tends to disappear.
This recipe is from Paula Deen's The Deen Family Cookbook. Jodi says you should let it sit in the fridge for 8 hours before eating, but the first round didn't even make it to the fridge. You can also add more sour cream if you want something chip-ready. Otherwise serve with toast or crackers.
These open-faced sandwiches are perfect for showers, ladies' teas or brunches. My mom used to make these for me as a little girl for our "tea parties". I use the Neufchatel Cheese because its a lighter taste and less fat than cream cheese. They are also good topped with a single, chilled cocktail shrimp. If you can't find cocktail bread, then a regular slice will do - just cut it in half.
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.
