My recipes,star-studded with more than five reviews! Make these with confidence, knowing they've been taste-tested by a panel of at least five different reviewers from the Recipezaar community. For the Zaar Stars Game.
I was surprised to see this traditional Southern drink wasn't already posted here, except alcoholic and low sugar versions. These refreshing drinks are popular at the Arnold Palmer Invitational Golf Tournament.
Surprised this simple recipe isn't posted here already...I'm adding it for the Canada stop on the Summer 2008 Zaar World Tour. Of course you can substitute diet cola for "crown and diet". Crown Royal whisky is distilled in Gimli, Canada at the Gimli Distillery. Located on the western shore of Lake Winnipeg in Manitoba, Gimli has the natural resources that are key to making Crown Royal's perfect blend. Natural local grains, a pure water source and a climate that supports the distilling process all come together to contribute to the smoothness and quality of this excellent whisky.
The vibrant green hue will impress your friends and family that you're being OH so healthy, but close your eyes and taste a strawberry-banana milkshake! The easy way to get three of your daily fruits and veggies - both times I made this I felt great afterwards! These green drinks are expensive at smoothie places and the grocery store, so why not make your own at home - no juicer necessary. Originally I created this for the Ready Set Cook #11 contest but it was too ugly too enter.
This is my favorite thing to order at Smokey Bones, a place popular for BBQ and watching sports. Darden Restaurants closed a lot of the locations and sold the rest to another company in 2008. This is my own copycat version of the salad, not an official restaurant recipe. This is very filling even as a vegetarian salad without the chicken or shrimp; at Smokey Bones they give you an unrealistically huge portion - making this recipe only serve four. Use any dressing you like; I really love Recipe#318828 however it's not an exact replicate of Smokey Bones' dressing.
Need a quick chocolate pick-me-up? Don't drown yourself in chocolate sorrows and blow the bank in fat grams. A small piece of this will satisfy your craving but you'll keep your slim figure...your best revenge! Your favorite nuts on top are optional!
A nice fitness lunch to keep you going all day! It's tastier than you would think considering the ingredients. Chipotle lovers may prefer Recipe#124740 for the dip or the easiest way is to use prepared dip from the jar. I love Guiltless Gourmet's Spicy Black Bean Dip or Desert Pepper Trading Company's Spicy Black Bean Dip. Based on a recipe from Ellie Krieger's Healthy Appetite, this serves two as an entree or eight as an appetizer.
France meets French Polynesia! Exotic coconut, banana and cinnamon island flavors complement the rich creamy, buttery, orange staples of the French countryside. This is an easy breakfast or brunch meal since it's all made the day before (the 12 hours passive cooking time is when it sits in the refrigerator overnight). Serve it directly from the baking dish...no syrup or butter needed!
Mmmm! Is this good! It tastes very gourmet without much work. I got this in an e-mail recipe exchange (similar to a chain letter) where each person shares one of their all-time recipes! Jenny who sent this to me said she adapted it from a recipe in Cottage Living Magazine.
Inspired by my favorite appetizer at the Chili's restaurant chain but these are baked,not fried. Two full egg rolls per person makes a nice dinner for T.V. night. For a dinner party you can also cut them in thick slices sushi-style. These can be frozen before they're cooked or afterwards.
People always ask why my rice comes out perfectly, even though I don't use a rice cooker. Siu Siu Korzilius, my Chinese cooking teacher, taught me that the secret to flaky rice is in the washing. Rice must always be washed before it's cooked to remove the excess starch which keeps it from being sticky. For brown rice, follow these same instructions but add more water (to several inches over the rice) and cook three times as long.
Although I've never met her, Cynthia in Atlanta sent this to me via an e-mail recipe exchange - something like a chain letter where you're forced to reveal one of your all-time favorite recipes or some horrible evil thing will happen to you. She said: "I make this on nights when I’m working and tired but want something a little more sophisticated than hot dogs." It was really good!
My boyfriend had no idea it was just cream cheese inside. He thought I had spent lots of time making a special filling. Next time I may try one of the cream cheeses they sell with flavoring already in it, like herb or sun dried tomato.
