I LOVE smoked oysters!!! But when you put them out for company they freak! LOL!!! (They ARE ugly lil' buggers! But so good!!) So to make them "pretty", I make them this way. Then people who do actually like them aren't given funny looks and don't shy away from them! And those who think they don't, actually give them a shot! LOL!!!) Hope you try them, too!
I came up with this recipe years ago, and am just now getting around to adding it! It was published in BH&G magazine, but it's been so long now, that I don't remember when exactly! But I make them every year for Christmas! They're actually very easy to make, but look very impressive on a cookie tray! Buttery, flakey and so good!!! Hope you try them! :)
I had fun playing in the kitchen last night, and I think I've come up with a real winner! It was VERY juicy, tender, slightly sweet and flavorful! And so easy to make! Hope you enjoy it as much as we did! *You can also use a small pork loin roast, also. **Don't be fooled by my lengthy directions, this is easy-peasy. I always just try to keep in mind that there are newbie cooks and try to help by describing everything I can to help.
This is a very old recipe that I originally got off of the side of a box of Kraft Macaroni and Cheese more than 25 years ago. I make this when I tire of plain tuna macaroni and want all the "junk" back in it! LOL! When you get bored, too, this is a nice change of pace! Very easy to make. (*Since Kraft has changed their formula so much over the years, I now use Velveeta Shells and Cheese, or make homemade macaroni and cheese using the velveeta recipe.) So whatever you prefer is what you should use. HTH! :)
After searching for hours trying to find a recipe that I had made, I finally gave up and am going ahead and posting mine. We like ours more sweet than sour, so if you do, too, this might be for you! Hope you enjoy it as much as we do!
While many North Americans think of tacos as having crisp, fried shells, authentic Mexican tacos are made with soft, fresh corn tortillas. The traditional preparation is the smart choice, as unfried corn tortillas are low in fat and made with whole grains.
I've been on a HUGE panini kick lately, and am having fun creating a ton of them! This is just one of my recent ones. (*I can't recommend enough, purchasing a cast iron grill pan, I LOVE the one I got for Christmas!) I thought it would get stored and used ocaissionally, but it's permanant home is on the stove! I use it almost daily! I have the long one with the grill on one side, and the flat side on the other. It makes everything from paninis, to burgers to pancakes like you wouldn't believe! Highly recommend checking them out!
I was making myself a steak panini with the leftovers of my steak that I had had for dinner the night before, added havarti cheese, and wanted a nice sauce to go on it. So I just looked in the fridge and came up with this crazy concoction! It was SO GOOD, I decided to not keep it a secret! What's the fun of it if you don't share? Hope you enjoy it as much as I did!
I made these for my hubby and I the other day, and they were so good, he asked if I was going to add it to zaar, LOL! (I think he was hinting so I wouldn't forget how I made it! Too funny!) Anyways, we inhaled them! Hope you like them, too! I've simplified the recipe to make just one, but you can adjust it to how ever many you need to make, of course. Have a wonderful lunch! :)
I came up with this while cooking up a pot of homemade spaghetti sauce actually! I was getting kinda tired and needed a pick me up, but wanted a little somethin' somethin' in there, too! So made me a cappuccino and added some liqueurs for fun! Turned on some music, danced in my kitchen, and never had so much fun cooking dinner! :)
My own creation using sun-dried tomato pesto, bacon and artichoke hearts instead of lettuce, topped with mozzarella cheese! Makes a quick, easy and delicious lunch or appetizer. (Cheese variation suggestions included.) *Recipe is for just 4 SLICES french bread, not 4 loaves, zaar glitch LOL!
