Here is a collection of recipes which are for those special gatherings where you want to fix dishes to impress. You might want to view this cookbook by "highest rated," although there are some real prizes that haven't been reviewed yet, too.
These are a deliciously healthy, filling meal, and good for both everyday eating and when your vegetarian guests come over for dinner! My non-vegetarian husband doesn't even miss the meat when I fix these. This is a *big* batch, so plan on leftovers. :) Good for picnics & potlucks, too... see note below.
Rice symbolizes prosperity and wealth, so rice balls are good for New Year's and wedding celebrations. I love these tasty little morsels, and they go well with many different kinds of food! I've served them with various meats and seafood, and they're always welcome at my table. :) Prep time includes chilling.
This is my favorite way to prepare leeks. You can eat it by itself or use as a topping for steak, chicken, or fish, and you can also add sliced mushrooms! Either way, it's a delicious addition to dinner. (The companion recipe to this one is recipe #100417 - or you can add cabbage to this recipe to combine them!)
This recipe came from my friend Duncan. He said, "I have a yummy tasty White Chocolate Creme Brulee that is fabulously easy to make. I'm not a big fan of white chocolate and I love this." He got it from the Portobello Yacht Club.
