    The FoodTV chef Giada De Laurentiis prepared this recently on her show "Everyday Italian." The episode featured a "Polenta Party" but this light cake sounded so much like it could be a great addition to Thanksgiving or Christmas menus that I wanted to get it down and post it for folks that might want it for their holiday tables. :) It would also be good for Easter! We made the cake for a recent Italian dinner party, and it was a nice, light ending to the meal.

    Recipe #108984

    This is the first of my Pantry Challenge recipes. I am making a dish from whatever I have at home already - those ingredients which are "just waiting around." This soup came out quite nicely, with a great texture and a wonderfully creamy and rich taste! The leftovers didn't last long, either... hubby and I ended up "fighting" over who got the last bit. :)

    Recipe #104725

    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

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

    Recipe #80989

    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

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

    Recipe #63326

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

    Recipe #60324

    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

    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

    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

    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

    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

    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

    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

    So easy it's almost ridiculous! :) These chocolate-covered pomegranate seeds are a great addition to the holiday season, and the kids will like helping to make them.

    Recipe #45549

    My husband dislikes zucchini, but even he gladly eats his servings of this at dinner!

    Recipe #44833

    In Italy, a cup of espresso or cappuccino just wouldn't be complete without biscotti.

    Recipe #44360

    This is a very tasty fresh salad, crisp and tangy! I love this stuff. :)

    Recipe #36428

    Wonderfully rich, chicken and pasta in a sinfully good vodka sauce... delicious! :) (Watch out for those cholesterol points.)

    Recipe #35550

    A flavorful and aromatic blackberry butter with salmon... delicious! Very Pacific Northwest. This recipe is actually quite easy to work with, and the results are worth it. The blackberry butter is also good on other things such as halibut and chicken.
