This is a great, healthy way to get your veggies and MUCH lower in fat than a traditional pesto. This is a great pantry-meal because it isn't dependent on the seasons and can be made in a snap at any time of the year. The sauce itself requires no cooking, and the food processor even does all the chopping for you.
This sauce is vegetarian as is, but could easily be made vegan by omitting the cheese.
Silken tofu is shelf-stable and can be found at asian groceries, specialty/health stores, and many regular grocery stores these days. It imparts no taste to the sauce, just a creamy decadent texture like the finest whole-milk ricotta. It can be your little secret!
I wasn't sure how bitter, raw cranberries could turn into this tart-sweet holiday treat. They would be great year-round; however, you must start with fresh cranberries. The following is the original recipe. I had a 7.5 oz pkg of organic cranberries, so I reduced everything by a third. I also only had the ground versions of the cinnamon and cloves. It stilled turned out great, but I would use the whole versions next time.
This was a real hit at a Christmas Party I went to last year. Not only was the idea original and the presentation artistic, but everyone loved it! They are served in a large way- oversized novelty martini glass. They are absolutely delicious and reminded me of a bite of Bloody Mary
These stuffed eggs are so good that I can only make them under supervision, or else I eat them all before it's time to serve them! A very quick and easy appetiser, which always goes down well at a buffet.
These are a fun appetizer and a much easier way to serve brie to a group. They are very versatile so you might want to try a brown sugar and walnut filling instead of the cranberry, or whatever is your preference!
This recipe is being entered for ZWT II & my source is fooddownunder.com. Funny the things you can find after so many yrs of loving & craving Czech kolaches. I was raised on them, but this kolache variation sounds wonderful to me & is so easy to make. This may well become my NEW favorite kolache! (Yield depends on size of tart made & has been "roughly estimated". Time does not include time to chill the dough.)
A really great tapa that will get you many compliments. Really simple to make. The original recipe was by Roxanne. I have served this at many of my "Wine and Tapa" parties and was always pleased by the response.
Be prepared for the best Greek salad on the planet! --- plan ahead the dressing needs at least 2 or more hours to blend the flavors, I sometimes add in 1/4 cup Parmesan cheese to the dressing for a more cheesy dressing, all amounts may be adjusted to taste ---- to marinade the salad allow to sit at room temperature before serving, see bottom of instructions --- you will find this and many more of my recipes posted here http://kittencalskitchen.com/2009/04/13/kittens-famous-greek-salad/ ---also see my recipe #359292
A starter or side dish, but I could eat these as a main course with some good bread. I have been making these for years now but mainly in the summer months. Its a Delia Smith recipe. I probably use more garlic. If you made these a few times you will find you don't have to refer to the recipe anymore, just get your roasting tin full of the tomatoes and add the seasonings. The dressing is easy to remember too. This is a top summer dish. Can be made in advance.
