Use over ice cream or my Cream Cheese Pound Cake with Strawberry Sauce (recipe #51739). You won't be disappointed. When I make this using fresh strawberries, I cut the strawberries in half, put into the food processor with about 1 cup of sugar and the orange juice and process until well combined. It's a winning combination! From Southern Living.
Another recipe I grew up with from the Bero book. This is a wonderfully thick sauce, great with mashed potatoes, steamed veg, and especially broccoli. Works well as a make-ahead, after being cooled in the fridge you can literally just cut a slice off the block so you easily get as much as you want. I usually buy the strongest shredded cheddar I can find as my joints won't put up with doing it myself. I'd advise picking the strength of cheese you are fond of though. I've listed it all as prep time as it needs fairly constant attention.
This stuff is fabulous! I love to use this to spread on top of warm breadsticks or rolls right out of the oven. Before when I made breadsticks, I could never get a strong enough flavor to come through in my breadsticks. Just slather this on top of or inside of homemade breadsticks or rolls. It's so much better than just sprinkling on Parmesan and garlic powder. You can also add Italian seasoning if you like. If you don't have minced garlic, you can substitute 1/4 to 1/2 tsp. garlic powder. However, I prefer minced with an additional dash of garlic powder. Mmmmmm... I have added to mashed potatoes or to butter up noodles. Make a bunch and store it in the fridge- it'll become a regular staple!
This goes back a long time, and I still make it to serve with a turkey dinner. It is one of my favorite cranberry recipes, and is always enjoyed by everyone. Serve this at your holiday dinner table and you will receive rave reviews! You can make this up to a week in advance.... this has the perfect balance of sweet and tart with the the right texture! No need to double the recipe this makes close to 6 cups, plan ahead the sauce needs to chill for 24 hours before using and you may omit the walnuts if desired
This is a fantastic clone for the store-bought marshmallow fluff and one I have used for years, it's easy to make and so much cheaper than the store-bought, I always use this instead of the real thing and it freezes well also, see note on bottom --- use this in any recipe calling for marshmallow fluff, I have also made this using dark corn syrup it is just a little darker in colour but it works just as well :)
After learning how good asparagus is for the body and how well it helps the kidneys. I thought this recipe was an excellent one. It is not cooked so the the asparagus is full of Vitamin A, Folic Acid. Did you know that asparagus has the largest percentage of RDA of folic acid then any other food source!! So eat up. This is excellent served as a dip or a spread. This recipe came from one of my favorite magazines: Organic Gardening
This recipe can be prepared in 45 minutes or less. Serve this tangy treat with biscuits, toast, or scones. Or use it as a dessert dip or spread between the layers of a cake. From Gourmet, 1999. Also, to be used with my recipe for Recipe #212709 or Recipe #46377!
A good 'base' recipe to know. It can be used to produce a multitude of delicious ice creams, or served on a fruit salad, or a slice of chocolate pound cake. You'll find your own delicious ways to use this versatile custard.
