Let's have a virtual potluck!
Anybody else want to come? Each participant needs to "bring" some of their favorite dishes, as follows:
You may bring up to two dishes for each course. The only stipulations are that the recipes must be tried and true (by yourself) and the first recipe cannot be your own...it must be that of another chef. The second recipe can either be from another chef or one of your own.
From Cooking Light magazine. I LOVE cold salads in the summertime. This one is exceptional. I often use the artichokes hearts in the jar with olive oil and spices already in it. You may need to adjust for that unless using the plain hearts.
My sister introduced me to these. They are always a big hit at buffets. Costco is a good place to get the supplies for these, as they sell almost all the ingredients (except maybe the squeeze cheese) in large quantities and at a decent price. These are also good just as a sandwich wrap. ;) Ingredient amounts are approximate, varying according to taste and quantities desired.
My mom passed this recipe along to me. It is easy to make and has been a big hit at home and at the office. I get frequent requests for the recipe. It is very moist and delicious and makes a good breakfast cake as well as a dessert. Increase nuts by another 1/3 cup if you like nuts!
This is a nicely-flavored simple salad that I love and make often in the summer. My husband is not as crazy about tomatoes as I am, but he will eat seconds of this dish. I clipped the recipe out of a newspaper several years ago.
I was searching for a recipe that used chicken and bacon and was saucy. I couldn't find anything on Zaar, but a couple of the recipes that I found gave me ideas and this recipe is the result. I used a larger dish than a 9 x 13, but I am sure it would fit. This would the perfect meal for entertaining or as a comfort food. I hope you enjoy it!
This recipe has tremendous flavor and the sourdough bread on the top makes this dish a home run. Like most casseroles, it is simple to make and is easy to clean up. I have pretty much changed the entire recipe from its original form because the original recipe was very bland and not memorable at all. I hope that you enjoy this cobbler as much as we do!
This is my sister's dip. She got the recipe while backpacking in Europe a few years ago. She is now forced to make it at every party she has. People smell it cooking and stand drooling by the oven until it comes out! (Many have not been able to wait for the cooling part and burned their mouths to get to it first). You might have to make 2 portions.
**NOTE: Please CHECK the sodium content before you choose a ranch dressing mix, because it will affect the flavor! Some people have complained it is "too salty". Please also make sure you are using only a 1 ounce packet; there are other sizes from various manufacturers. Too much mix throws off the balance of flavors. My sister and I always use the Hidden Valley Ranch Original and we do not have any problems with it :)
You can also substitute half the sour cream for prepared Ranch Dressing and skip the dry mix. It will come out a bit wetter.
When I was in college, I worked in an Asian restaurant. My boss made the best curry I have ever tasted, and after much prodding and bothering the poor man, he finally fessed up! I have worked for years to get the recipe right, and I think this is it! I hope you like it as much as I do.
