These are quick to make and are good to snack on, add to salads or to top a soup. The original recipe is from epicurious. You can use less oil than is shown and still have great results. Yield shown in recipe is a guesstimate.
I confess to being turnip ignorant. It seems a shame to let a perfectly good vegetable go uneaten for lack of knowledge. Then I found this recipe in "Yamuna's Table", and I became a turnip convert. Try it and join me in having a new appreciation for this humble vegetable.
These can be made up to 5 days in advance. Store in an airtight container with wax paper in between layers. They will brighten up any cocktail party or appetizer table! You will need 3 in. and 2 in. star cookie cutters.
Another Singaporean pickle recipe from the "Nonya Favourites" cookbook; these are a delicious twist on dill pickles. They're spicy in the sense of being spiced; if you like more heat, add more chili powder. I have also successfully used prepared grainy mustard in place of the mustard seeds. Cook time includes "pickling time" overnight.
This is a wonderful recipe that is from Alton Brown of "Good Eats". They aren't dill, but boy are they addicting! Simple to make, I'm sure this can be adapted for canning - they never last that long 'round here. I can't stop eating them and others always want some to take home.
I make these every year when my pickling cucumbers are ready in my garden, they are really great pickles and so easy to make, add in more garlic and adjust the dill if desired --- these pickles develop in flavor with refrigeration time so allow them to chill at least 7 days or even longer before using, the longer the better, the pickles will keep for months in the refrigerator, use only kosher salt for this not table salt, and make certain to wash the outsides of the cucumbers thoroughly, see note on bottom --- for soaking the pickles in firstly to remove bacteria see my recipe#300387
This is some gorgeous finger food, I got the recipe from some food magazine ages ago. Would go well as a apetizer to a Chinese or maybe Mexican dinner. I would suggest using small tortillas, but if you only have bigger ones you also need a bigger frying pan.
These eggs are really different from your standard hard boiled eggs and my kids love to have the in their bentos. The trick is to only medium boil the eggs initially and then crack or peel them and finish them off in the soy sauce broth. I use the smallest eggs I can find to do these, so that my kids can have two eggs and I don't have to feel guilty. The eggs aren't supposed to be overwhelmingly seasoned, but if that's what you're looking for, leave them in the broth for a longer period after boiling. I routinely double the recipe by increasing the number of eggs, but leave the amount of the broth ingredients the same.
A very yummy, quick and easy and NOT low-cal recipe I got from the MyFoodDiary.com forums. Different from cornbread. This is soft and served out of the pan with a spoon. Too soft to cut into squares and eat out of hand. Eat with a fork.
These delicious appetizers were a hit at our Easter Sunday potluck Brunch. I was pleased to find the recipe was in one of our local cook books 'A Taste Of Heaven' and surprisingly a recipe I had been thinking of trying. Delicious, easy and a crowd pleaser! I find putting them on a cookie sheet and heating through in a 350 oven make for a marvelous hot appetizer. Also excellent at room temperature.
Once you know how to plug your dehydrator in, you're limited only by your imagination regarding how many different "recipes" you can come up with for fruit leather. These simple snacks are healthy and often more convenient to eat than fresh fruit. I ziplock a batch and take it with me. Either pureed apples or applesauce makes a great inexpensive texturizer with a rather mild flavor, so I often flesh out whatever the main fruit flavor is with it. This time it's strawberries! (My friend Freya arrived on my doorstep last weekend with a HUUUUGE box of the most beautiful berries I've ever seen, so rather than to lose the last of them to age, I've gone the dehydrating route.)
