I love to make copy cats from restaurants so I can have them whenever I want. These are very good as posted but for a change you might like to add chopped green onion and/or red bell pepper. I serve these with my Roasted Garlic Aioli recipe.
We went fishing in Canada this last summer and caught some wonderful salmon. This is a recipe I developed to use with them. It would work well as a stuffing for mushrooms too with a little Parmesan cheese on the top. It makes one whole salmon which works well for a large group or dinner party. You could also half it easily!
This is so rich and decadent. It is pretty enough for a dinner party, but my kids start running around w/pure joy when they see the ramekins come out of the cupboard! If you don't over bake them the centers should be like hot fudge. YUM.
We love to get restaurants to make their specialty drinks into a virgin form since we don't drink. This is what we had a Joe's crab shack one time, minus the alcohol! You really can't call it a recipe...more like directions, hope it's o.k. to do this! My kids adore this and love it when I make a "special" Mexican dinner, cause this has to be on the menu. It's really like having dessert w/ dinner. Very easily converted to it's "true" alcohol form.
Another recipe I adapted from a local fondue restaurant. This is comforting in winter and yet goes perfect with fresh summer fruits. Also a great way to serve dessert at a dinner party. One year for our neighbors for Christmas we layered all the ingredients substituting marshmallows for the marshmallow cream and w/o the cream in fancy gift bags.
We tied it with ribbon and a tag explaining how to finish the recipe. What a hit!!!
Alice springs chicken has always been one of my all time favorite chicken dishes. I looked everywhere for the recipe that looked the closest and this is the winner + or - a few to my taste. We love onions so I always sauté some up with the mushrooms but whatever works best for you!
The best way to get your kids to eat their broccoli. This is great for every day,special occasions, an even large groups. My kids get so exited when they find out this is for dinner. There are six of us so I always double it.
