A creamy dressing with the perfect blend of spices, adjust the amount of dill to suit taste I advise not to use more than 2 teaspoon fresh garlic or it will overpower the dressing, all other amounts may be adjusted to suit taste --- don't even think about serving this dressing until after it's chilled for at least 4 or more hours and the longer the better --- for a lower fat option use low-fat mayonnaise, sour cream and buttermilk --- for Ranch Peppercorn dressing add in 1 tablespoon cracked black pepper or to taste, and for Parmesan ranch dressing add in 1/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese or to taste --- this makes a fantastic veggie dip!
Deviled eggs are the perfect "bring a dish" dish for any occasion, all year round. These are pretty much the classic version but with a nice kick that comes from the hint of prepared horseradish. Adjust this ingredient depending on your diners' tolerances.
This recipe is to be used in place of Italian sausages without the casings, the amount of spice blend is good for 2 pounds of ground pork, I most always add in an a small onion and 2 tablespoons fresh garlic to the pork mixture in place of the dried, you might want to adjust the seasonings to suit taste, and for spicy add in 1-2 teaspoons crushed chili flakes or to taste --- if desired you may cover and refrigerate the uncooked pork mixture overnight to blend the flavors even more!
The best method of making chili oil for Sichuan cooking I have found - from the outstanding Fuchsia Dunlop book "Sichuan Cookery". I use it for dipping sauces etc; my hubby pours it over his pasta for breakfast! The more sediment you have, the hotter it is.
From www.TopSecretRecipes.com This is a favorite with Italian-style grub.The recipe comes from Carrabba's Restaurant. They serve the spices on a small plate and the waiter adds olive oil, then you are set to dip your bread. YUM YUM! TIP: Chop all spices in small chopper and store them in a small container in the refrigerator, since a little goes a long way -- that way you can have it anytime.
