I often make delicious recipe #31207 and recipe #100417 individually, but it just makes sense to combine it all together in one great side dish! Also good as a steak, poultry, or fish topper. I just love it when the leeks are in season here in the Pacific Northwest... :)
I originally made these at the request of my old chorus director John Kelleher, who also worked at Seattle area Starbucks (I think he'd had the combo in a cookie there, once). I was surprised but very pleased they came out so tasty! These days, these are pretty much the only cookies which are requested and I make on a fairly regular basis.
I have no idea where I got this recipe, specifically, but I know I picked it up on a Seattle BBS when I was going by the nym of "Sari" back in the late 1980s, and it's still floating around on the internet, here and there. It is attributed to Janet Detter Margul@ The Fifth Dimension (that's an old BBS), in Dallas. An old family favorite and you can even disguise leftover turkey with this recipe.
A very tasty and simple fish dish that I served many times in Seattle with tossed green salad, baked potato, brussel sprouts, Gewurztraminer wine, and baked bananas for dessert. Your guests will love you!
This recipe is from Chandler's Crabhouse in Seattle. The restaurant periodically supplies patrons with its recipes on cards at their hostess station. This is a great appetizer and very simple to put together.
This is our version of the extremely popular appetizer served at Chinook's restaurant in Seattle's Fisherman's Terminal. Fast and fresh, this makes a great party dish as almost everything can be made ahead of time. It's also a great main dish on those nights when it's too hot to cook in the kitchen. So sit back, relax, pop a cold one and imagine yourself on the beaches of Baja. This is one appetizer that let's you enjoy your own fiesta.
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... :)
