The Auld Alliance is a series of historic friendship treaties between Scotland and France, first signed in 1295, as well as a traditional cheese and whisky pâté. This is the ORIGINAL simple cheese cream recipe, straight from the historic Overscaig B&B in Sutherland. Delicious served as a cream pâté for the first course, or at the end of a meal as a savoury. From the book "A Feast of Scotland" by Janet Warren. Prep time includes chill time.

Scotch eggs are marvelous for travelers or picnickers! Take some spring onions to go with them and, if you've got plates, some chutney or mustard, for dipping. This recipe is taken from Delia Smith's Complete Cookery Course.

A fruity chutney with a spicy kick! Goes great with roast meats or sausages, cheddar cheese, or as a spread for sandwiches. I like to make at the height of summer, when tomatoes are at their peak flavor. Lovely canned or frozen for gift giving.

Recipe #379361

An unusual and delicious chutney! Goes great with my recipe #291094, recipe # 291094 for a take along picnic! Or, serve alongside roast chicken or turkey and my recipe #145403 # 145403 for a Sunday or Thanksgiving meal! From Chef Deborah Schneiders' "Jsix Restaurant" in San Diego's restored downtown Gaslamp District. (Note: hibiscus flowers, also called "Jamaica", are available at Henry's Farmer Market, or other specialty shops in your area).

Recipe #145401

This is a delicious and refreshingly different fruit salad! Your choice of fresh grapefruit, oranges, pears, mango, apples, and grapes (choose four) tossed with fresh green chilies & toasted peanuts and dressed in a wonderful tangy citrus brown sugar sauce. One of my all-time favorites. Great for brunches or served with a mild chicken dish. From Sundays at Moosewood.

This syrup works with any combination of fruit; I especially like it with the tropicals. It is a light and refreshing dessert; the use of the vanilla bean makes these fruits seem exotic. Cook time includes chill time. From author and herbalist Susan Belsinger.

This yummy dessert/salad has been in the family for ages. Works just as well with sugar free jello and light products. I usually double this recipe, and serve it as a nice light dessert or side salad whenever the weather warms. Great for potlucks! Enjoy! Note: Cook time is chill time.

Recipe #112777

Fresh pineapple, grapes, kiwi and strawberries come together in this simply fresh fruit salad. Finish with a squeeze of fresh lemon or lime, and a drizzle of honey, if desired. For a party, would be great served with one of my fruit dips such as recipe #117822, recipe #124472, recipe #454595, or recipe #371727.

Recipe #366253

Here's a simply wonderful yogurt and creme fraiche (or sour cream) based dip with honey and lime! Serve with an assortment of your favorite fresh fruit (such as pineapple, bananas, oranges, kiwis, and grapes)--it's also great with honey grahams or macarons. Enjoy! Tip: Can be made with either lemon or lime yogurt, your choice.

Oh so pretty in pink, but may be tinted blue--or any color you wish!!! Great for baby showers, luncheons, pool or beach parties, luaus, etc. I like to serve the bowl of dip nestled in a bed of ice, alongside a carved watermelon-half filled with fresh pineapple chunks, melon balls, strawberries and grapes. From my son's friend Cindy G., who got the recipe from a caterer in upstate NY. Enjoy!

Recipe #124472

This dressing has a light, fluffy texture and is wonderful served with fresh fruit such as orange wedges, fresh strawberries, apple wedges, and pear wedges. Perfect for a spring celebration or Easter Brunch! From Better Homes and Gardens- March, 1982.

Recipe #117822

A lovely, refreshing cool melon and fruit salad, with notes of mint and lime! Serve this classic fruit salad with breakfast or brunch, -or- as a light dessert after a heavy meal. I hope you enjoy!

Recipe #244838

Nothing is more refreshing on a warm spring or summer day than a tall glass of iced tea, garnished with tiny sprigs of fresh mint and thin cucumber slices! Try 'Kentucky Colonel' or apple-and-citrus flavored mint varieties. Lovely! Adapted from Victoria Magazine.

Recipe #430188

This lovely salad would be wonderful on a bed of heirloom oak leaf lettuce with a bit of the vinaigrette drizzled over all. Recipe is an adapted one from California restauranteur and cookbook author Jesse Cool.

A great make-ahead salad of kidney beans, cucumber, tomato and fresh mint in a tangy lemon-olive oil dressing. Great for picnics, potlucks, barbecues and summertime entertaining. From my mother.

Melt-in-your-mouth baked croissant sandwiches of thinly sliced ham, Swiss cheese, and a delicious buttery Dijon and poppy-seed sauce! Perfect for luncheons or entertaining, or packed into picnic lunches; great served warm, or at room temperature. Use as much ham and cheese as you like! Sandwiches are easily made up in advance and individually wrapped in foil, then refrigerated or frozen (use a freezer bag) for later use. Defrost overnight in the fridge, then bake as directed. Or, if frozen, bake at 300 F for about 1/2 hour until warm. If using mini-rolls, you may place them in a buttered baking dish and bake for the specified amount of time (no need to individually wrap)--I've also microwaved them. Enjoy!

Recipe #363997

Fantastic on roast beef sandwiches (see my recipe #283972 #283972), alone on a toasted bagel, or with smoked trout, salmon or tiny shrimp! Or, makes a lovely appetizer served with mini-bagels and topped with a spiced nut--the possibilities are endless!

A longtime favorite sandwich of mine, since first trying the California Sandwich many moons ago at a little "healthfood" deli stand in Pacific Beach, California. This is my version. Use recipe #173076 for ease of preparation. Also good with thinly sliced tomatoes, in place of the cucumbers. I hope you enjoy!
