Tasty snack from Cooking Light that provides a concentrated source of carbohydrates from the raisins, along with protein and "good" fats from the nuts. Feel free to substitute nuts and fruit according to your preference, or what you have on hand. I don't care for raisins, so I used craisins (dried cranberries) ; I found I was out of slivered almonds, so I substituted some chopped macadamias. I especially loved the addition of cardamom--added an unexpected element.
These crisp little balls have a creamy filling of potatoes, cheeses, fresh parsley, shallots. Along with a slightly spicy chipotle dipping sauce. A wonderful way to use left over mashed potatoes. Or an excuse to make extra mashed potatoes.
This goes fast! A great late night snack, goes perfectly with burgers, soup, and sandwiches! Adapted from Food & Wine magazine.
Onion rings are a type of fast food commonly found in the United States, Canada, United Kingdom, Australia and Spain.
A very simple and easy way to make Burger King Onion Rings at home. It does take a little getting used to, but once you get the hang of it, it's pretty easy. Vegetable shortening is best, but you may use vegetable oil if desired. Cooking times and servings are a guess. From TopSecretRecipes.com
This is one of my favourite streetside snacks in Taiwan. It is extremely easy to make and tastes great on its own as a snack or in a lunch box. Could also be sliced and presented with cold meats as a starter. I usually make it without measuring anything, so these measures are estimates.
Landi's is a famous pork store in Brooklyn New York. You will LOVE these. They make a great appetizer. I served them with a side of marinara sauce. I use medium grain rice because it holds together better than long grain rice. These are easily frozen and then reheated in the oven.
With the high price of Marcona almonds imported from Spain I was happy to find a recipe that produces a very close facsimile at a fraction of the cost, but uses California almonds. This was adapted from an article published in the San Francisco Chronicle. Hope you like them.
This dish makes and excellent Appetizer, Snack or Main Dish. It's also a great introduction into the vegan world, if you want to convert kids or meat-eaters to a healthier lifestyle.
They taste great with sauces & dips or by themselves. You need to make a lot though. When I make them, they only last for a few minutes. You might want to double or triple this batch.
Found this on the internet years ago. It is now a family favorite and I make it every year for the snack table at Thanksgiving. I usually omit the green chiles because I'm a wimp. Prep time is a guess, I'm notoriously slow in the kitchen. Cook time is chill time.
This is a recipe I got from a dear friend while she was on the Atkins diet. I just fell in love with the flavor. I now make them as an appetizer for Thanksgiving every year. I never make the old mayo mixture anymore. I hope you enjoy!
