    Something Different !

    I'm always looking for that "something different" in recipes. "Something different" to me means the recipe is somehow unusual, like unlikely flavours which work, or a dish that have me saying, "Wow! Now THIS looks interesting! What an original idea ...!"

    A great alternative to fast-food French fries, my family and friends love these as a snack or hors d'oeuvre. No matter how many I make, it's never enough!

    Recipe #133821

    I named this dish after my home town, Scarborough, in the North of England - and yes, they really do have a "Scarborough Fayre" every year! And, this recipe does contain "parsley, sage, rosemary and thyme"! This is a very old recipe for savoury bread pudding - often served before the meal, just as Yorkshire Pudding used to be, to take the edge of your appetite & stop you eating too much meat! I added the bacon, but normally it is just made with pounded stale bread mixed with herbs, chives or onions, eggs and any dripping that was available. A delicious savoury dish - serve it with lashings of onion gravy as a light supper, brunch or lunch dish, or as an appetiser, also with gravy. This makes a wonderful accompaniment to roast pork and roast chicken. I have also been known to eat slices of this cold & it's ideal for picnics. Don't throw your crusts away, but process them in a food mixer and freeze them in zip-lock bags.....voila, ready made bread crumbs!

    Recipe #217042

    I love the zesty taste of this recipe, and the fact that it's so different. I never would have thought that lettuce could be good with pasta but it's lovely.

    Recipe #16561

    A deep coloured, fruity and intensely flavoured chutney. I concocted this recipe last year, when we had lots of windfall pears......and, I slipped a bit of saffron in for good measure! This chutney is delicious with ALL cheeses, but especially strong hard cheeses such as Farmhouse Cheddar, Gruyere, Comte and Cantal. It also goes exceedingly well with cold meats and charcuterie - especially cold roast Ham. Dollop it in sandwiches, add it to curry & cooking sauces.....the list is endless for this fruity chutney! It is always best eaten after at least 1-2 months; the flavours are mature and mellow. (This recipe has been posted as a special dedication for two close friends, one on RecipeZaar and one who sadly passed away recently - may all your pears be saffron pears & all your days be golden.)

    I am very lucky. I love fresh & smoked salmon, but never have to use the canned variety & even have a salmon cookbook. This recipe is the 1st of 2 I found at justsmokedsalmon.com & they acknowledged Marilou Robinson of Portland, OR. Her intro said "The ingredient list looks long, but none of it takes much time to prepare & it can all be done ahead of time. Because this salad needs to be made ahead & chilled, it is a good choice for a Sun night supper. When guests arrive, heat an assortment of fancy rolls from your favourite bakery & relax w/your company. Everyone will be impressed & well-fed. The recipe can easily serve as many as you like by just increasing the amt of ingredients & using a larger platter." Enjoy! (Time has been estimated & does not include time for beans, eggs & potatoes to cool after they are cooked)

    Another pickled onion recipe... so good on sandwiches. My favorite is salmon on dark bread with these pickled onions on top, which would also be a great appetizer if cut up.

    Recipe #39937

    I've made this for years after learning how from a Japanese exchange student. This is a great sidedish for beef!

    The original recipe came from a set of photo-recipe cards and was called "Eggs Lorraine," which just HAPPENS to be my mom's name! We fell in love with 'em, and when I made them for my folks, I ended up giving them a set of ramekins so they could make 'em at home, too! COOL THING: pop 'em in the oven, then get dressed for the day. By the time you're ready, so are the eggies! NOTE: This recipe is for ONE serving, just repeat for each additional portion.

    Recipe #208437

    Elegant egg recipe for a brunch. The recipe came from a B&B.

    Recipe #163597

    My husbands Aunt Anne had given us this recipe. It was served at a wedding she attended. She was told to uses Mountain bread which is very similar to flat bread or a tortilla only square. These are very yummy and great for appetizers. They are very easy to make. Enjoy.

    This is a recipe by Beth Elon, who has a column every other week in our local paper. In our house it's just not Friday night dinner unless there's soup, but with the weather being so hot lately, I haven't been able to even bear the thought of sitting down to a hot steaming bowl of chicken soup, let alone cooking it on Friday. I tried this out the other night and it was so refreshing, I think we'll have this more often than just Friday nights during the summer! Prep time includes chilling (who wants lukewarm cuke soup?).

    Recipe #35586

    Every self-respecting French housewife has a tub of this by the side of her cooker; they are all slightly different depending on the region you live in, but this is one that I use over and over again. It has just a hint of herbs & spices, enhancing a dish rather than overpowering it. The French call this "Sel Fou" or Fool's Salt, which is a wonderful name for it I think! Please note, I have NOT added any chilli powder or Cayenne pepper in this mix - I realise that hot spices are popular in seasoning salts, but this is herbal rather than spiced! I use it to sprinkle over salads, add it to pasta, stews, soups, daubes, casseroles, pies, roast chicken & meat etc. It is also GREAT sprinkled onto hot Chips (French fries) & over the top of pizzas. I don't like to make huge quantities, due to the herbs losing their freshness and flavour - so, this makes about 125g (just over 5 ozs) of Fool's Salt; you can of course increase the quantities if you wish!

    Recipe #211484

    Sick of sandwiches? want something different for lunch? this light and satisfying recipe is just the thing to fix those blues. I found this in the Australian brand name recipe cook book. I had invited some friends for lunch and wanted to give them something different. This recipe was a huge hit they left with a smile and the recipe as well.

    Recipe #165818

    This is a "throw it in the oven & blend it all together" recipe which is always a great hit any time of the year. I have called it a Tapenade; a Tapenade contains olives, anchovies & capers normally, with a few regional variations, but this reminded me of the consistency of a Tapenade, so that's what it's called! (There are NO anchovies in this one!) I use this for dips, spreads, sauces, grilled sandwiches plus grilled meat & vegetables. It is very versatile & stores for up to 2 weeks in the fridge - with a coating of olive oil on top. This recipe makes enough to fill a 1lb jar; it is very easy to increase the quantities. Please note, there is no need to salt the aubergines OR take the skin off after they have cooked.

    Recipe #209887

    This wonderful dish may not be quite authentic with the addition of Old Bay Seasoning but it is delicious and super-easy to make. I have made it with both tuna and salmon which has not made any difference to the flavour.

    A light, fruity chicken dish, only 4 WW points, but you would never know. Other fruit preserves, such as apricot, blackberry, or peach will also work in this recipe.

    Recipe #196474

    This Thai-style noodle salad is chockfull of fresh summer flavors. It requires a good amount of prep work but the resulting taste is well-worth the effort. Ww 6 points

    That's how my mum used to call this alsatian tart. The real name is flammekueche, in my family, we make it with "fromage blanc", which is something creamier than plain yogurt. You can find a lot of different recipes for this tarte, using creme fraiche or not, very thin bread dough or puff pastry. I like it this way, try it with some gruyère cheese (grated) on top, Miam !

    Recipe #200201

    In France, anything that is made in the style of a quick bread is called a "cake" after the British style fruitcake. However, you can have both sweet and savory "cakes." Somehow, in English, calling something that is savory a cake just sounds wrong, so I've decided that "loaf" is a better description. This is wonderful with tomatoes that are fresh from the garden, but it will also be good with those storebought things. It makes a perfect appetizer or light lunch when served with a simple salad.
