A wonderful tasting and attractive hors d’oeuvre that can easily be made ahead of time, to be baked later. I sampled these at a friends art opening and had to have the recipe. Everyone was raving over how good they were and could not believe that she hadn't hired someone to make them.
This is a delicious garlic mayonnaise that can be used as a vegetable dip, sandwich spread, or let your imagination run wild! This recipe came from Emeril Live at Food TV Network. Definitely a winner for garlic lovers! How about using it potato salad?

This is based on Rachael Ray's recipe for Wellingtons ("Well Deserved, Well Dressed Individual Beef Wellingtons"), but I've also made them with sea scallops in addition to beef and they were astoundingly delicious. :) This is a *very* romantic dinner item. *grin* My husband was a big fan of this dish!!
