I got this great idea from a magazine my friend got. She told me the basics, I went home and gave it a try. It worked out beautifully. I can only imagine how beautiful the presentation would be using these as salad shells. They have a lacy, delicate look to them.
I had something similar to this at a party and loved it. So, I did my best to recreate it for my next party! I've since learned this is a very different method than what she used, but I love my version because it is fast and tastes just as good. This is good as a sandwich or cut into smaller slices as an appetizer. (Servings vary depending on size of slices.) Can be made ahead of time and kept in refrigerator until ready to heat. (Refrigerated loaf will need to be heated a bit longer.)
I saw this recipe on the web and thought it looked so good I had to try it immediately - so I did! The results were wonderful. Even my fiance (who swears he doesn't like pineapple) thought they were great. I found a couple of similar recipes on zaar, but not one exactly like this.
I found this my latest Cookbook Digest (which says this is in a cookbook called "Secrets of Light Latin Cooking") and tried it immediately. I used feta cheese instead of goat cheese and it tasted great to me.
My DH2b loved the chicken pizzaiola sub at Subway, so I set out to find something similar. I came across this Cooking Pleasures magazine, and have made it with both chicken and steak. (Of course, the cooking directions are different with chicken.) Can be served as a main dish or on a sub if you slice the meat up a bit more.
I saw this in a Kraft recipe pamphlet the other day when I was looking for something quick and summery. Turned out really well and the colors are beautiful! I admit, I didn't use corn on the cob, but it still turned out great.
This recipe was given to me by a friend in MOMS Club. The basic recipe is the same, but I have changed it just a bit to reflect our preferences. For example, DD loves black olives so I added them as one of the "toppings." I love this recipe because it is easy to double or triple to make for big crowds. You can add whatever you want, even change the meat to sausage if you want. AND, it's a great meal to prepare in advance. It refrigerates well if you want to make it a day ahead and freezes well if you want to make it even further in advance.
The name is pudding, but the texture is more like an extremely moist cake. This recipe IS the holiday season to me. My grandmother makes it every Thanksgiving and Christmas. She used to make it the hard way, but learned a trick in the grocery line one year. A lady had several spice cake mixes and Grandma asked what she was making - she said persimmon pudding. Grandma got the recipe and never looked back. :-) I can't tell you how many people I've had say "eww, persimmon pudding?" only to beg for another piece!
I just came up with this one night after discovering my fiance doesn't like tuna. I just had to try to convert him... and I did! I didn't measure, just kind of dumped stuff in, so I'm estimating on some measurements. Feel free to adjust mayo, breadcrumbs, etc. for desired texture. The quantity can be 2 BIG buns or 4 regular sandwiches.
I have low sugar and dairy tolerance, but have been craving a shake ever since watching my fiance and his cousin devour shakes during a long (and, for me, shakeless)car trip. So, I came home and made up this quick shake I can eat without fear of feeling sick. I was nice, though, and shared with my fiance. :) He didn't even know it was low-sugar or low-carb - I consider that a good sign!
This pie is VERY peanut buttery! It doesn't have to be crunchy, but it's good that way. I love the combination of the different layers (both their taste and texture) in this heavenly pie. Plus, and this is a BIG plus for me, it's simple! Oh, and it is a pretty little pie, too! (Cook time listed is for chilling.)
I may live in Virginia now, but I'm still a Hoosier at heart! My mom found this recipe on familytime.com, but it was originally published in Nestle Very Best Baking. There is a cookie-like crust with a fluffy sweet top layer.
This is a very easy potato soup that tastes creamy - but without any cream or milk. It's very versatile and can be made with a variety of veggies and meats - or is great with only potatoes. This is an adaptation of what a friend gave to me as a Weight Watchers recipe.
This is my DH's favorite recipe, and I love it because it's so simple to make! This is especially good on a cold night after a long day at work when you want some warm comfort food but don't have the time or energy to put a lot into preparation. **I wasn't happy with the consistency of the filling, so I played around with the recipe a few times. I think I've finally got it just how I like it and have edited the recipe to reflect the changes.**
A quick, yummy pie with a hint of refreshing citrus. Perfect for cook-outs or other get togethers because in makes 2 pies at once. Given to me by a coworker who always has the perfect recipe! (Refrigeration time listed as cook time.)
Such a simple casserole that is very filling and delicious. A friend gave me this recipe when I needed something easy to cook for a family dinner. I've since made it several times and always receive compliments. This recipe is also easy to double, or even triple, for large families.
To answer the reviewer who questioned the lack of apples, I believe this is what is called "Mock Apple Pie." That is, it tastes like apple pie but uses no apples. My grandmother makes something like this. That said, this is not my recipe. It is an adopted recipe that I have asked be removed from my account, along with all other adoptees. Most were removed, but a couple were apparently missed.
