    This came from a magazine about 40yrs ago and it is just so tasty. The orange flavour with the salmon is delicious. It has been quite a while since I have made these and I think it made about a dozen. I also tend to roll pastry a little thinner, so it ends up longer.

    Recipe #175497

    Awesome dip!!! Always the first to go at parties. It is also great served in pre-packaged phyllo cups

    Recipe #129556

    We were served this at a dinner party. The host obtained the recipe from a restaurant I believe is called "Miguel's Cocina". This luscious sauce is perfect as a dip for fresh veggies, tortilla chips or better yet, potato chips! It's also an irresistible topping for baked potatoes. Because it's simply a flavored, upscale white sauce, the sky's the limit here! For chicken base, I use the "paste" type soup base, and also add a pinch of salt to the roux. Adjust the jalapenos and juice to taste.

    Recipe #122147

    This would be a wonderful addition to a summer barbecue menu. Fantastic with vegetables straight out of the garden!

    Recipe #119130

    Pumpkin and Lentil Fritters with garlic, leeks and tarragon. Suitable for a light and healthy vegetarian brunch or lunch. Increase or decrease the number of garlic cloves to suit your preferences. Adapted from a recipe in the April 2005 issue of 'Table: Easy Family Food and Healthy Living'.

    Recipe #118276

    A marinade of bourbon and maple syrup gives these scallops a slightly sweet flavor that contrasts nicely with the smoky bacon. Serve them over rice with a side of snow peas and/or broccoli. Adapted from Cooking Light.

    Recipe #117964

    Many years ago while on vacation in Munich, Germany, I stopped in a bakery for a snack. The pastry I had has stayed at the back of my mind for about 10 years now. This is my attempt at re-creating it. It is still kind-of a work in process, so please feel free to add more sugar or lemon juice as you like.

    This was first given to me by my girlfriend and I have made it for graduation parties and dinner parties ever since. It tastes better than the name :) I like this because you can double the recipe or like I did made four of them for a graduation party and they all went because not everyone likes kraut with sausage.

    Recipe #117354

    Chickpeas processed with roasted nuts, lemon juice and fresh chopped coriander is yet another variation on a hummus dip. Like most people I just love hummus - in any form! So I really love trying any variation I come across. This one, I can promise, is quite different from others: for me it certainly passes the scrumptiousness test! Like other dips, it can obviously also be used as a spread on sandwiches. I cannot remember now just where I got this recipe from, but from the way I had it filed in Word, it was obviously from a website, possibly the Edgell website, as it specified that Edgell Chick Peas be used.

    Recipe #117139

    From Gourmet magazine comes this wonderful calamari salad – and although it is delicious eaten right after preparation, it’s even better if you allow it to chill for 8 hours in the refrigerator then bring it to room temperature for serving.

    Recipe #116802

    This recipe - which works as either a main dish or appetizer - is a result of combining some different "Salt and Pepper Squid" recipes that I hadn’t made before. I was aiming for the taste I’d had in a Seattle sushi place, but didn’t quite achieve it. On the other hand, my husband and I loved these anyhow, so I decided to write up the recipe so that I – and others – can duplicate it in the future. These are as good as any calamari I’ve gotten in restaurants! The first time we made them we gobbled them down so fast that I forgot to take a photo... :)

    Recipe #116159

    I keep a couple of bags of pre-cooked cocktail shrimp in the freezer for impromptu gatherings, and here's the method I've come up with to make them into a quick, more flavorful appetizer. Great year round, but I often end up taking it to summer potlucks and picnics. Since folks have asked me for the recipe, I figured I should probably write it up and finally share it here, too. :)

    Recipe #115502

    This is based on the recipe by Bob Blumer from the "Surreal Gourmet Bites" cookbook. This simple caramelization method transforms this much maligned veggie into a knock-your-socks-off side dish or sweet snack that you won't be able to get enough of!

    Recipe #115153

    After preparing AngelaTN's roasted asparagus for dinner recently, I just couldn’t get enough of them! I wanted to make them again, but the event I was going to was a non-heating kind of thing, so I decided I'd put together an adapted version that would work well chilled or room temperature, as an appetizer. Here's what I came up with, and it's delicious! I made them as part of an anti pasto tray. Prep time does not include chilling.

    Recipe #114923

    I needed an appetizer for a dinner last night, and had all these ingredients at home. These came out wonderfully well! Very tasty. :)

    Recipe #114911

    I saw Rachael Ray preparing these on "30 Minute Meals" recently, then found endive on sale at Trader Joe's… I have the rest of the ingredients at home, so I couldn't resist! :)

    Recipe #114770

    At the Hopvine Pub in Seattle, I often order a custom pizza that has pesto, feta, mushrooms, and eggplant on it. (In fact, I've posted my version here as "Eggplant Mushroom Feta Pesto Pizza" - yum!) Recently, I asked them about the eggplant, because I'd noticed on the menu under another description that it said it was their own marinated recipe. A few minutes later, the waiter showed up at the table and handed me a ticket with ingredients on it! Not a recipe, exactly, as no amounts were shown, but here's what I've done with it (with a few tweaks). :) I use these marinated eggplant pieces in sandwiches and on pizza, but I'm sure you can find other uses for them as well. Delicious! Prep time includes chilling.

    Easy to make treat that the kids and grownups alike will love. Cubes of mozzarella and pepperoni slices are enclosed in refrigerator French bread dough and baked. Found this on the internet, but I'm betting it originally came from Pillsbury who makes the dough.

    Recipe #114069

    This is a great dip, very easy to prepare and a big hit at parties and get togethers. I get asked for this recipe quite alot...hope you like it! Serve with crackers or fresh veggies.

    Recipe #113322

    These simple and elegant cheese crisps have been featured several times by Giada De Laurentiis on FoodTV shows.
