A friend brought these to a picnic. After one taste of the warm-from-the-oven cookie, I knew I had to have the recipe. These are now the most requested cookie by my family. The recipe makes a HUGE batch of big cookies, but they do freeze very well. The 5 dozen amount is a guess, I've never counted! We love these and hope you will too!
If you want an impressive dinner with a short ingredient list and easy preparation, consider this recipe. Such an easy dinner to prepare and you can feel comfortable enough to serve this to guests. *Prep time does not include refrigeration*
This is based off of an Ina Garten recipe, changed slightly due to personal preference. This is a moist and flavorful burger that my whole family loves. If you're tired of the same ol' same ol' burger, give this a try! You can either use an outdoor grill or an indoor grill pan. Can easily be doubled, etc..
I found this recipe in an issue of Better Homes and Gardens, and decided to try it since I had all of the ingredients on hand. Wow, was I ever impressed by this simple recipe. The soup is flavorful, thanks to the rosemary (although my daughter actually likes it better without the rosemary - your choice to add it in or not!) and very hearty. Perfect for a cold winter day. The crispy carrots are optional but they really do take this soup up a notch. I like to make the crispy carrots first, but you could also start making them while the soup simmers. I could eat the crispy carrots all on their own!
A traditional steak and Guinness pie done by my favorite British chef, Jamie Oliver. This is made particularly easy by using puff pastry for the top pie layer! If you want to skip the puff pastry layer, you could serve this as a normal stew. The herbs listed are just a suggestion. Jamie typically leaves the amount and type up to the cooks' personal tastes. He suggests a "handful". I did change the recipe a little bit from his, due to personal preferences. Feel free to substitute out the Guinness and use beef stock instead. Pure comfort food. :)
This is a great alternative when you want to impress guests but don't want to spend a fortune on a meal. Using ground beef is faster and easier on the pocketbook. The recipe makes one large beef wellington that you slice up into portions. This would be great with a homemade gravy. A Jamie Oliver recipe.
This is a simple, delicious soup that can be served either hot or cold. Adding ham is optional. Note the chopping of veggies in the ingredient section. Once everything is prepped, the soup comes together in a snap! This soup goes well with a nice piece of crusty bread...or toasted bread drizzled with a little bit of olive oil. Thanks go to Jamie Oliver!
This takes a traditional full English breakfast and gives it a healthier twist! Thanks to chef Jamie Oliver, you can get a full Monty in under 500 calories. It's actually a lot healthier than most pastries, muffins and croissants. Give it a go! *I have to admit that I used regular bacon instead of the Canadian bacon. Personal preference. It's up to you!
Traditional British fare. This is a pretty simple take on fish pie, by Jamie Oliver, which doesn't involve any poaching of fish or making a bechamel sauce. You can use whatever fish you choose. If you like your fish pie to be creamier, feel free to add a few tablespoons of creme fraiche or heavy cream. This is great served with a fresh, green salad or steamed veggies. Make it yours!
This recipe comes from The Black Dog Summer on the Vineyard Cookbook.
Just buy the cod and parsley; and you probably have everything else at home. Such a simple fish recipe and it packs a lot of flavor. This is for garlic lovers! Note: if the breadcrumb coating doesn't immediately adhere to the fish, just pat it on. It works great.
I love, love, love this recipe. It can be a little time consuming to make but you can prepare it in advance and then bake when ready. It is the creamy goodness of comfort food but gourmet enough to serve to guests. This comes from a favorite cookbook of mine, "Gourmet's Parties".
This recipe is a little more involved but well worth the effort, in my opinion. This is a nice dish to serve when entertaining because it looks impressive. I've included a separate recipe for the mushroom sauce, which tops the chicken wellington. I really hope you enjoy this special recipe!
*The prep time does not include 2 hours of refrigeration*
Note: You can make the mushroom sauce earlier in the day and reheat while cooking dinner. It just cuts down on the amount of things you have to do at dinner time. ;)
This tastes just like the store-bought version. I make it every year, before Christmas, to give as gifts (and of course to keep some for ourselves!).
It ends up being less expensive than buying from the store AND you get to say that you made it yourself! :)
