I got this recipe from my grandma and I have no idea where she got it. It calls for a food processor, but I use a blender and have no problem with the taste. The first time I made it, it turned out a little bit greener than my grandma's, so my husband used less of the parsley (sorry I don't know how much he just 'eyeballed' it) and it looked more like it, but still tasted great. I posted the recipe as it was given to me, so when you make it, you might want to play around with the amount of parsley you use.
The 'cooking time' is the refrigeration time required before serving.
I hope you enjoy.
I found this recipe in the 'Joy of Cooking' cookbook. I was looking for a poppy seed and honey dressing recipe that was like a dressing that I loved at the Bittersweet Cafe in Kent, WA. This dressing is delicious. 'Joy of Cooking' recommends using a salad of fruits and greens, but a simple garden salad is a perfect mate as well. The step with the immersion blender is optional and was not in the cookbook, but I found it helpful to keep the ingredients from seperating and it pureed the shallots perfectly. I hope you enjoy as much as I do.
I got this recipe from the Williams-Sonoma Bride & Groom cookbook. The book suggests using "firm, ripe pears with a buttery texture and sweet perfume, such as French Butter, Comice, Warren, or Bartletts", but I used Anjou and found these muffins to be delicious. Also the recipe calls for freshly grated nutmeg, but I used jarred ground nutmeg and didn't notice the difference. I hope you enjoy as much as I did.
I got this recipe from a cookbook (I believe it was called Northwest Food & Wine) that features Pacific Northwest wines and dishes that compliment them. This specific recipe suggests a Northwest Reisling as a perfect accompaniment. I hope you enjoy.
I adapted this from a recipe I got off the myrecipes.com site. It is a wonderful marinade for flank steak. The great thing about this recipe is that you can serve the steak alone and it is still flavorful or you can top with yoru favorite sauce. Marinade time (3 hours to overnight) is not included in prep time. I hope you enjoy!
This is a family recipe, and an all time favorite of mine. Some people like to substitute cheddar cheese, but I don't like it myself. For me it's American cheese or no Mac & Cheese. The amount of cheese is an estimate, I just grate enough until I think it is cheesy enough. Blocks of American cheese is hard to find for me, so I've used sliced American cheese and have not had a problem. I hope you enjoy!
You can replace the canned apricots with 12 fresh apricots. Apricots are in season in June. Can substitute the sparkling wine/Champagne for 2 (12-ounce) cans ginger ale or lemon-lime soda. From Southern Living, April 2005 on myrecipes.com
From williams-sonoma.com. Arancini means "little oranges" and they are served as snacks in Sicilian bars and cafes. The filings can vary, so feel free to play around with your own personal fillings. I hope you enjoy!
from Martha Stewart Living, June 2008. Tip from recipe: if using thick asparagus spears, halve them lengthwise before sauteing to ensure quick and even cooking. Tools needed: whisk, medium bowl, large skillet, mixing spoon, and serving dish.
