So elegant and so simple. This is my little adaptation of the classic Caprese salad...everything is the same except that the fresh basil has been replaced by purchased (or homemade if you have it on hand) pesto sauce. I like this version more because I think the salty/garlicky/nutty pesto does more for the other two ingredients.
Elegant, great make ahead cake! Pound cake, whipping cream, milk chocolate morsels, coffee ice cream, cool whip, and malted milk balls are put together in this yummy ice cream style cake. Would be great for a party. Found this in a Taste of Home publication, Spring 2006.
This recipe is the salad dressing made by my boss Andrea's Greek grandmother... it's absolutely delicious and I serve it in the antique cut-glass cruet that my co-workers gave to me in a goodie basket for my marriage to Ed. Preparation time includes letting dressing sit overnight for the best flavor.
This is The Olive Garden's recipe, from their cookbook. It is not a copycat.
It has been cut down to make a more reasonable size.
I have made this for several years, and everyone who has tasted it, loves it.
It is a hearty meal in itself, or it can be served with salad and bread. This is especially good on a cold winter night !
***I have edited the cooking order to make the preparation time shorter.***
You can substitute other white fleshed fish for the halibut and if you don't have a steamer, you can wrap the fish in a loose foil packet and cook it in the oven for the same 9 to 11 minutes -- just be careful when you open the foil because the steam will rush out. And, depending on your palate, you can increase or decrease the garlic and the heat.
Love the combination of flavors and textures in this savoury salad. Delicious also as a sandwich (leaving out the grapes). Try it cold or a yummy hot variation: on one slice of sweet, whole-grain bread, spread 1/2 cup of chicken salad and put under broiler until heated, but not bubbly; top with 3 slices of bacon and 1 slice of provolone cheese. Return to broiler until cheese is melted. Yum!
I spent a lot of time in Greece and this was by far my favorite dish. I love it served on a hot pita with marinated onions, tomatoes, and feta cheese; all topped with garlicky tzaziki sauce. I'm not sure where I got this recipe, but I've been making it for years with great success. Serve with fried calamari and French fries. Make a lot of tzaziki so there is plenty for dipping. Time to prep does not include the very important marinade time.
With the leftovers from the pulled pork recipe below, we have a) made sandwiches, b) combined some with BBQ sauce and c) ate it straight from the bowl in the fridge… all sheer bliss. Today when I spied the last of our supply, I was inspired to make tacos with all my favorite toppings and here they are. You will have leftover pulled pork and be darned thankful for it! Time estimate does not include overnight marinating.
A recipe from Katsuyo Kobayashi, and her book "Quick and Easy Japanese Cookbook". She was one of two female chefs to defeat Iron Chef Chen Kenichi, and is also considered to be Japan's favorite TV cooking show host.
I found this recipe on Allrecipes & tried it last night. It is wonderful!!! This has become my new pumpkin recipe for fall!! I put the batter into mini loaf pans to sell at a bake sale. Someone else suggested putting it in a bundt pan with a glaze drizzled over the top. Whatever you choose to do, it is yummy!
