    Remember the layered taco dip everybody loves? Well, here's a Mediterranean version for you! Very, very tasty! Prep time includes chilling. This dip took a bit of work... I first posted it at Gail's way back in the 90s, I think.

    Recipe #47041

    I haven't had traditional ginger wine, but I decided to make a sort of infused ginger wine of my own, and the below is what I came up with. I tried it tonight, and YUM! :) Traditional ginger wine, produced before the holidays from scratch, is popular in some parts of England and Scotland. While this version isn't exactly traditional, this is a tasty addition to the Thanksgiving and Christmas holidays! Prep time includes letting it sit before serving.

    Recipe #48833

    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.

    Recipe #49461

    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.

    Recipe #49521

    This is a very rich, very tasty lasagna for when you're feeling like indulging. An "oh my goodness" with much rolling of eyes and moaning with pleasure kind of lasagna. :) You might want to serve it in smallish pieces so that people can eat it, love it, and still have room for seconds. I wanted a rich lasagna when I created the recipe, and that's how it came out - I'm very pleased with it!

    Recipe #50213

    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.

    Recipe #50265

    After having celery mashed potatoes in a restaurant, I had to figure out how to make them at home. :) These are wonderfully flavorful!

    Recipe #51201

    This salad makes a nice light meal in the summer. It's versatile, so feel free to fiddle with it and add your own ingredients! An adopted recipe.

    Recipe #57034

    A tasty light main dish salad. Good summer meal, either for lunch or a light supper.

    Recipe #60324

    Based on a recipe from the 1997 Southern Living Annual Recipes, these mashed potatoes take on a beautiful terra-cotta color and a rich, unusual flavor!

    Recipe #62072

    Sweet and spicy, the flavors in this salmon are wonderful year round! It can be either grilled or baked.

    Recipe #63326

    Absolutely delicious, and surprisingly easy to make!

    Recipe #65627

    A versatile and tasty veggie salad to help cool those hot summer days! Prep time is chilling time in the fridge.

    Recipe #68503

    A simple, fast, and delicious recipe! Scallops, lump crabmeat (careful not to break up the lumps while cooking), or lobster can be substituted for the shrimp.

    Recipe #69356

    Nothing fancy here - just good, old fashioned and delicious scalloped potatoes.

    Recipe #80989

    I recently got two pounds of mini bell peppers at Costco, and after eating about half of them raw (yum! they're so sweet and tasty!) we got to the point where I needed to find something else to do with them. Here's what I came up with, and having just eaten one, I can assure you they're absolutely delicious! These can be either baked (which I usually do), or eaten uncooked.

    Recipe #99048

    I've made these several times, and they're quite tasty! You can either use your own cooked polenta or commercially packaged cooked polenta, whichever you prefer.

    Recipe #99213

    This is an excellent spread, based on a recipe from "Caprial Cooks for Friends." It can also be very tasty served over cooked vegetables such as asparagus, or as a steak topper.

    Recipe #99371

    My vegetarian friend Matthew and I get together to cook now and then (he being a newbie chef), and this was the first dish we made as his introduction to veggie cooking. Very tasty! Based on a recipe from Curtis Aikens.

    Recipe #102473

    My husband recently made this dish for a Scandinavian potluck. As strange a combination as it sounds, it's very tasty and was gobbled up by everybody at the event. Give it a try! This recipe is based on one from an excellent cookbook called "Eat the Norway," where they say: "Should you be invited to an informal evening get-together in Norway - sewing club, bridge party or the like - you may well be served this dish, particularly in late summer when Norwegian cauliflower is at its best."
