I got this cocktail recipe by Chuck Taggart on the gumbopages.com website. This drink is strong, but it is refreshing on a hot day. According to Chuck, "this drink was supposedly invented at a New Orleans joint called Santina's Saloon in the mid 1800s...The traditional spirit for this drink is brandy or Cognac, but bourbon has been known to be substituted." I used brandy, and Patron citronage for Cointreau. DH said simple syrup and sugar syrup are the same thing.
From the Fox13now.com website credited to Jennifer Burns of Dan's Market. I made a half batch of this egg salad for lunch today. Actually, I used 4 eggs (what I had on hand) and halved the other ingredients. I used pickle relish for the dill pickle. Be careful with your cajun seasoning. I read somewhere that paprika should be the highest proportion in a good Cajun seasoning. Other types can be heavy on the salt (like the one I used) so my salad was a little salty when tasted on its own, but fine once I put it into a sandwich. I did not use salt and pepper to taste. I served on toasted English muffins with tomatoes, but skipped the lettuce. Prep was very fast for me because I used an egg cooker. The recipe does not reflect time to hard boil the eggs.
This recipe is from the Whole Foods site and the one that they posted as going over their mini crab cakes recipe. I served it over a vegan recipe that I posted for Recipe #503810. Warning: I found this to be very spicy (and I like spicy). You may wish to start with 1 tsp of hot pepper sauce, try it, and add more to taste. I made this in my mini food processor. I'm not that good with eyeballing measurements, but I would say the yield looks like about 3/4 cup to me or so.
DH and I enjoyed this decadent recipe for brunch today. I did not have store bought Creole mustard, so we used Recipe #38148. We skipped the reserving of the egg yolks to scatter on the finished dish as it was just us eating and we didn't really care about the garnish. I used my egg maker for the hard cooked eggs.

This recipe differs a bit from the others already posted in that it contains egg and simple syrup. I enjoyed this today with my Sunday brunch. It is from the Nola Cuisine website. I didn't have freshly grated nutmeg for garnish so I sprinkled a bit of ground nutmeg on top and it was still good.
We made this recipe credited to Mark Bittman that was published in the April/May 2013 "Vegetarian Times" and really enjoyed it. My friend and I topped ours with parmesan. We used fresh thyme and the Roma tomatoes. The recipe indicates that the dish will keep for several days in the fridge or several months in the freezer.
This recipe came from Better Homes and Gardens and DH and I liked it very much. The burgers had great flavor and consistency. DH said so far, this has been the best meatless burger recipe we have made to date. Instead of using the country Italian bread, we just used hamburger buns. We chopped the parsley. We did not top with the Easy Tomato Sauce.
DH and I loved this recipe from the Williams-Sonoma website. We thought it to be really rich (not low cal) and delicious. The only modification that I made was to use soy chorizo from Trader Joes, which worked out great. This recipe uses Bomba rice (arborio) vs pasta, FYI. We made the whole dish in the Dutch oven and transferred the Dutch oven to the oven so as not to dirty another pan. Prep time includes resting time.
I got this "in a hurry" salsa recipe from the McCormick's website. The chipotle chile powder that I use is pretty hot and it is not McCormick's, so I might scale the powder back a little next time. Brought this to a party and it was eaten in a hurry. Because it requires very little chopping, it was ready quickly. I easily doubled the recipe with good results. Prep time does not include 30 minutes in the fridge.
This recipe is credited to Marie Saba from the Aug/Sept 2011 "Taste of Home" magazine, who makes this dish when she and her husband have a date night. DH and I made it last night and loved it. My curry powder tends to be on the hotter side, which gave it a nice kick. We served over jasmine rice.
Served this recipe from Williams-Sonoma last night for dinner. It was so good!! I made the mistake of using leftover hamburger buns instead of following the directions of using sourdough rolls, which would have stood up better to the sauce, resulting in a soggy burger. This did not affect the wonderful taste, I just would not make this mistake again. I used an 18-year old balsamic vinegar from Fustini's in this dish and it was wonderful. I also used my grill pan instead of the BBQ owing to the weather. It worked well. According to the recipe, the sandwiches can be served warm (which we did) or chilled. Prep time includes marinating time.
DH and I made this easy tasty recipe submitted by Kim Caputo in the Aug/Sept 2011 "Taste of Home Magazine." The only change we made was to top with freshly grated Romano cheese. We also used fresh linguine. We will be having this again!
I made this healthy recipe from the Taste of Home Feb/March 2011 issue today for lunch and really enjoyed it. I used Sabra roasted pine nut hummus. I usually also dice up kalamata olives and include them in the wrap. This recipe also works fine using Gardein brand faux chickn tenders.
From the May 2011 "Real Simple" magazine. DH and I made this quick and easy recipe for dinner tonight and thought it was a great weeknight meal. I used frozen ravioli, homemade from a local Italian bakery and used the Pecorino cheese. We did not need to use any of the reserved cooking water. Serving size says 4, but DH and I ate the whole batch ourselves.
This light and easy recipe comes from Bon Appetit. DH and I enjoyed it. I actually used pimento stuffed green olives as those were the only olives I had on hand and it worked out fine. I cooked my swordfish a few more minutes on each side than the recipe called for.
DH and I enjoyed this nice twist on pastitsio last night for dinner. It gave me a good excuse to use up some of my ras-el-hanout spice that I have in abundance. I liked that there was very little prep involved in this recipe. I got it from the March 2011 issue of "Bon Appetit." Prep time does not include resting time.
