    This is a simple and versatile recipe. It lends well to any type of white fish, such as: perch, tilapia, whitefish, halibut, etc. It might even work well with salmon, but I haven't tried that yet. I love the crusty, delicious almond coating. If you can't find Panko breadcrumbs, you could try regular bread crumbs. I like to serve this alongside wild rice and a nice salad for a simple and pretty healthy meal.

    Recipe #321734

    Most kids love 2-minute noodles and corn fritters so in this recipe, adapted from a recipe on the Simply Great Recipes website, the two have been combined to make yummy kid-friendly pancakes. If you want to sneak in some different vegetables, you could probably get away with this the second or third time you make these! For an adult version, perhaps add bacon, garlic, and serve with sour cream and lemon wedges.

    Ever wonder what to do with the leftover meat toppings you didn't put on your pizza? Well, I had some italian sausage and pepperoni left over and this is a recipe that I came up with that I wanted to share with you all. My italian sausage was already cooked but if you wanted to use raw, you could omit the butter and oil and cook the onion, mushroom and garlic with the sausage.

    Apparently this dish is named in honour of a carters wife, who travelled everyday to Rome from the countryside with her donkey laden with fruit, vegetables and wine. I don't know how true that is, but it's a good simple dish made with humble ingredients, and it's delicious.

    A super-quick roll that goes well with spaghetti or ravioli!

    Recipe #308876

    This is a favorite recipe of my DH's. It's fast and tasty. He makes it frequently for most social gatherings, most often serving with kettle chips. He says it doesn't scale well, so if you'd like to double the batch, make two separate batches, then add them together.

    Recipe #303057

    This is out of my old WW cookbook called 123 Success Recipe Collection, dated 1997.This side dish is packed with flavor and color. Serve it with chicken breasts marinated in a teriyaki-soy mixture for a speedy, delicious supper.

    Recipe #302772

    This is a spicy salad made up of apples, pecans and bleu cheese in a balsamic vinegar dressing.

    Recipe #298087

    This recipe is my own version, modeled after my own apple pie. Usually, this is made using ingredient amounts that basically include a pinch and a dash, a squeeze and a scosh. Finally, I made myself slow down and kind of measure everything out so that I could post it here. These are, of course, approximate. I've written this to make four individual crisps, the way we eat it, but if you want to make one big crisp, just add 10 minutes to the baking time. I don't use nuts, but if you want to add some nuts such as pecans to the topping, just replace about a 1/4 cup of the oats with them. Also, I'm not a huge fan of very sweet desserts - this even pushes the limits for me. If you prefer sweeter desserts, increase the sugars in the filling to your taste.

    Recipe #297472

    Just four ingredients! I had fresh strawberries that were getting soft, so I froze them. I had a leftover single-serving cup of mandarin oranges in juice, so I froze that too. I placed the frozen strawberries and frozen mandarin oranges plus their juice into the blender with a bit of cold water. This is a recipe I just created tonight. I was going to add some frozen (from fresh) blackberries, but my bf had expressed his desire to use them to make a blackberry shake, and there weren't enough blackberries for us both to share. Oh well! I just finished making this right before I completed my recipe submission and imo it's really good! It's very refreshing and tastes fresh too. I used about a tsp of honey and it's perfect. This reminds me of a Dole Frozen Whole Fruit Bar, except it's drinkable. There are also some nice pieces of strawberry left in it that make this really pretty and yummy. Be careful, this really will give you a brain freeze! Lol. :) This really doesn't need blackberries in it, I think it's great as-is, but the blackberries would add a different flavor, depending on what you are after. This one tastes predominantly strawberry with mandarin orange sneaking as a great background flavor. Edited to add: I bet you can make this a Brain Freeze with a Kick by adding an ounce of your favorite plain or flavored vodka or plain or flavored rum to this. :D ETA: A clarification on the mandarin oranges. In most stores in the canned fruit and applesauce aisle, there are a variety of fruit companies that sell packages of single-serving, individually sealed plastic cups of mixed or single fruits in light syrup or juice. I had one of these single-serving plastic cups of mandarin orange sections in light syrup or juice that I needed to use up. I froze the entire cup and contents. The cup the mandarin sections were in stood up well to freezing. When I created this recipe, I opened up the plastic cup and dumped the frozen contents (sections and syrup) into the blender along with the frozen strawberries. I note this b/c there was some confusion with another reviewer. I'm sorry for not being more clear. :) If you cannot find these single-serve cups, and you don't mind opening a can of mandarin sections in light syrup or juice and putting them into a freezer-proof container and freezing solid, that will work too.

    My daughter's boyfriend's mom gave her a cookbook that was created by the Houston Ballet for their Nutcracker Christmas Market in 1984. The recipes in the book were submitted by directors, choreographers, and dancers in the Houston Ballet that year. This recipe was submitted by Jeanne Doornbos, Soloist.

    Recipe #292032

    Adapted from Rachael Ray! Whats not to love???

    Recipe #287929

    Found this in a potato cookbook picked up in a thrift shop. A nice simple side to make using fresh herbs & tomatoes.

    After half a bottle of wine, you'd be drunk too! Time does not include marinating overnight.

    Recipe #283040

    We love these orange pops year round!

    These are very similar to the typical merinque type cookie but w/an added surprise. To make it truly a surprise (as suggested by 2Bleu) try using white-chocochips. :-) (After reading reviews, I have altered the ingredient list).

    Alright, you caught me.... I hate using store bought mixes but I had some Bisquick in my pantry and needed a treat real fast one night when I ran out of flour so this is what I came up with!

    Recipe #271830

    This is a delicious twist to your regular gingerbread! I think I even like it better than plain ol' gingerbread! Another one of those recipes where you just can't eat one! Time does not include chilling time!

    From Jenny Stacey's Steam Cuisine. I am guessing at the times here!
