    A favorite recipe of ours from About.com. We use Absolut pear as we found it worked better in this recipe than other pear vodkas we tried. St-Germain is an elderflower liqueur from France.

    Recipe #492644

    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.

    Recipe #503336

    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.

    Recipe #480023

    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.

    Recipe #503878

    DH and I made these margaritas last night, which I found in the April 2009 edition of Bon Appetit. They are credited to the bistro, Stack, inside The Mirage in Los Vegas. I thought these were really good. I liked how they were not overly sweet. Using a good tequila is important. I used Don Julio in my first one (that DH brought back from Mexico several years ago) and when it ran out, I tried it with Hornitos Plata. I could definitely tell the difference (the Don Julio being smoother), but both were nice. DH suggested using a Reposado. Enjoy.

    Recipe #361343

    DH made this cocktail for me a few nights ago and I really enjoyed it. It's from my Food & Wine "Cocktails 2006" book and is credited to Jake's Restaurant in Philly. According to the book, Jake's Restaurant makes this drink with Sailor Jerry, a spiced rum flavored with cherry and vanilla.

    Recipe #342050

    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.

    Recipe #503808

    This recipe is from the Black Dog Tavern's "Summer on the Vineyard" Cookbook. This marinade is great on grilled fish, such as salmon, bluefish, swordfish, or tuna. DH and I made this the other night to marinate our swordfish. We thought it was excellent as well as quick and easy. The cookbook also states that the marinade can be used to season cooked fish or vegetables as well.

    Recipe #298309

    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.

    Recipe #503874

    From www.TopSecretRecipes.com I love P.F. Chang's Mai Tai. DH found this recipe on Top Secret Recipes. We think this is pretty close, and really delicious. This is the way we make our mai tai's! Enjoy!

    Recipe #299648

    I got this recipe from Holiday Market, which is near the house and we tried it on some white fish. DH and I thought it had a nice flavor.

    Recipe #275418

    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.

    Recipe #460271

    This recipe sounded a bit different, but it turned out really nice. Even DH, who was skeptical, enjoyed it. I got the recipe from a local market called Westborn. These were very easy to prepare.

    Recipe #435640

    I got this recipe a long time ago on another site. I found it to be an easy dish to prepare with nice flavor. It is good for a beginner chef. I serve this over angel hair pasta, tossed with olive oil, garlic cloves and parmesan cheese.

    Recipe #275499

    This fast and easy recipe is credited to Cynthia Charbeneau of Traverse City, MI. I made the recipe from the www.fustinis.com website. Fustini's is a store in Traverse City that specializes in all sorts of different olive oils and balsamic vinegars. The balsamics and olive oils also come in infused varieties (I just bought a pomegranate infused balsamic for salads). I love shopping in this store when I am up north. On the website, very few ingredient proportions are listed for this recipe, so I listed the proportions I tried tonight. I would never have thought I would enjoy strawberries with fish, but I really thought this dish was a winner. DH said he "liked it." I used Fustini's 18-year aged balsamic vinegar. I omitted the sugar and water. DH always cooks the tuna steaks by first putting them in the oven on 200F for a short time before pan searing them. This way, they are still rare (but not cold) on the inside. I put the strawberry/balsamic combination in a saucepan on the stovetop between medium low and low, just enough to warm them up. I served with one of our favorite salads, Recipe #191024 191024, using Fustini's 12-year-old white balsamic vinegar.

    Recipe #407204

    We found this recipe from the January 2011 Bon Appetit to be easy for a weeknight and full of flavor. We served with Recipe #155018 155018, which we highly recommend.

    Recipe #446304

    DH and I made this easy, tasty recipe from Bon Appetit tonight and really enjoyed it.

    Recipe #447658

    DH and I enjoyed this simple, tasty recipe from the June 2008 Bon Appetit.

    Recipe #392623

    DH and I have made this dish for dinner on several occasions and think it is delicious. It is another winner from Keiko O Aiko's "Easy and Healthy Japanese Food for the American Kitchen." What really makes the dish is the sliced onions--don't be afraid to use more!! One thing to watch out for is that the thin chops tend to dry up quickly and the sauce reduces quickly, which can leave you wanting for more sauce. We have also used thick chops with great results. I should mention that I always use reduced sodium soy sauce (I prefer San-J Tamari).

    Recipe #288905

    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.
