Serve Clams Casino Dip/Spread warm or at room temp with buttery crackers (such as Townhouse or Ritz) or a good bread as an appetizer or snack. Mmmm delicious...perfect for a Super Bowl Party, or anytime. Great make-ahead dish, the flavors develop after several hours in the fridge (Chef John recommends at least four hours in the fridge), but best tasting warm or at room temperature so take out of fridge an hour before serving. From Chef John at Food Wishes.
Wonderful potluck dish or family dinner. Enjoy! You can also make this with shredded chicken. It's good served warm or at room temperature. The garnishes are optional, pick and choose which are your favorites.
This dessert-salad is a blast from the past! It's basically a rice pudding with crushed pineapple, whipped cream, and maraschino cherries. Serve glorified rice as a salad to accompany your holiday meal. It's also a great dish to bring to potlucks or church picnics. Enjoy! Adapted from "Mennonite Girls Can Cook".
A great summery dessert that is perfectly good on it's own or over angel food or pound cake, with a dollop of whipped cream, or over a couple scoops of vanilla ice cream. Adapted from Ina Garten's "Barefoot Contessa Back to Basics".
These are absolutely delicious deviled eggs! They are a favorite in our household. I like to make a few extra to have on hand for pre-party snacking. Be creative as you like with the toppings--we like paprika best, but some other toppings that we have enjoyed are baby shrimp, sliced black olives, snipped fresh herbs, or pickle relish. Enjoy!! Recipe is adapted from a church cookbook given to me as a young bride, over thirty years ago.
Tender succulent boneless pork roast is rubbed with olive oil and seasonings and slowly roasted to perfection in the crock pot until it is falling apart, then stuffed into warmed and buttered Italian ciabatta rolls. A wonderfully simplified version of the classic Porchetta Italian Market Place Sandwich by Nigella Lawson.
These are the BEST! I've been making this recipe for over 20 years now, and it's always a HIT with my family and friends! Great for BBQ's, potlucks, camping etc. Can be made in the oven or in the crockpot, and it freezes and reheats well.
The perfect pasta salad for picnics, potlucks and gatherings. I've made this without the mayo, using the artichoke marinade in it's place, and it was equally fabulous and well received! Best served well chilled.
An incredibly fantastic chicken salad, perfect for summertime entertaining! Also great tossed with cooked bow-tie pasta, which makes a more substantial meal. This is so delicious, one of my all-time favorite chicken salads!! Slightly adapted from a Paula Deen recipe.
This tart is wonderful picnic, potluck or party food--it's great served warm, cold or at room temperature! Simple and very tasty, I often make this tart when fresh zucchini are in season. For ease of preparation, I've used a crescent roll crust, but you may use a regular shortcrust pastry if you wish. You will need a 9 or 10-inch tart tin with a removable bottom. P.S. If you don't have a tart or quiche pan, just use a 9 x 13-inch baking dish.
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.
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!
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.
Awesome grilled chicken kebabs with pineapple chunks and veggies! This is a must try, your family will thank you!!! Quick and easy recipe with no need to marinate in advance--just assemble the kebabs and grill immediately. Or, you may assemble them in advance if you wish, then cover and refrigerate until grilling time. Makes 9 kebabs. Great served with baked potatoes and all the trimmings, or rice (see my Royal Thai Rice recipe #114887 #114887). Yum!
These are some great tasting, finger-lickin' ribs! Boil 'em and then grill 'em (or you may finish them in the oven, if you prefer), then serve 'em with extra Q sauce for dipping. Simple and easy recipe, with NO heating up of the kitchen from a hot oven, which is an added bonus especially in the hot summertime. Recipe is from my Southern born and raised sis-in-law, Patricia Ellen. Thought I'd share with y'all, I hope you enjoy. Serve with some corn bread or buttered rolls, beans and slaw.
