    This recipe comes from my friend Ann in Maryland. I have made this many times, and it's always devoured! It's not necessarily "quick and easy," because I hand-chop the olives and make my own guacamole, but the extra effort makes a big difference. Ann's original recipe did not call for jalapeno and cilantro, but I love it! She isn't an olive lover, so she omits those. Really a great dip that can be fiddled with to suit individual tastes!

    Recipe #397745

    My husband fired up the grill a few nights ago, and as always my job was to come up with a good vegetable or two. The Mississippi yellow corn looked so fresh and fat at the Farmer's Market that I decided to make up a recipe. Big success! We'll be having this often. The stripping of the husks and re-wrapping is a bit "fiddly," I admit, but the presentation is attractive, so worth doing if you are entertaining at a barbecue.

    Recipe #397740

    Little one-bite appetizers served on a toothpick. Could work as an entree over rice or noodles using larger bamboo skewers and more chicken/peppers. Used as an appetizer, they are equally good hot or room temperature. These were such a hit at our recent Hallowe'en party that I wished I had made more!

    Recipe #397712

    Needing a good autumn green veggie to go with the classic spaghetti-and-tomato-sauce for tonight's supper, I searched on this site and found John Skrable's "Brussels Sprouts Americano"...I gave it a good rating, but made so many changes that I decided I'd post my own!! Now, I came late to Brussels sprouts in life...school cafeterias and my own mother boiled the poor little cruciferous things to MUSH, and, ugh. I've discovered they're so very delicious if a little "crunch" remains. So, I don't pre-boil or blanch. Try this---you'll like it (I hope!) Side note: I don't make this in large batches, as it sort of loses its fresh "oomph" when reheated the next day. Hence the smallish quantity.

    Recipe #396477

    Are you all as devastated as ME about the death of *Gourmet* magazine? I could weep. Luckily, I have a near-complete collection of issues going back to 'way before I was born, so I can live on those the rest of my life! This recipe (of course I've fiddled a little with it) was on the last page of the last issue, and even my husband, not usually a big fan of creamy dips, keeps getting it out of the fridge and eating it cold with pita crisps. Best served warm, though...

    Recipe #395963

    This recipe is a "tweaked" one from the *Ambrosia* Junior Auxiliary cookbook, put out by the JA in Vicksburg, Mississippi. You can order a copy at Amazon.com, and I suggest you do! The proceeds benefit their projects for children, and the food shots and historical narratives are great. I was one of the four writers who provided the historical passages, so I'm obviously biased!:):) This is a delicious pull-apart loaf filled with yummy things, perfect for a brunch or morning coffee. The original recipe had sausage in it, which I omitted. The ready-made bread dough makes this really easy, although I have made it "the hard way" using my favorite yeast-dough recipe, as well. Always a big hit!

    Recipe #395589

    How tasty is this light spreadable appetizer? A local caterer asked ME for this recipe after she tasted it at a party I gave! I got it from my husband's aunt several years ago. It's especially good for a springtime cocktail menu. I feel a bit sheepish about the canned soup, but trust me---nobody will ever know! (Note: cooking time means chilling time)

    Recipe #395358

    These tasty little cocktail nibbles are irresistible with a nice glass of sherry by a winter fire, and everyone simply loves them. I wish I could remember where I found this! Possibly *Gourmet* magazine, years ago? No clue. They are more spicy than sweet, but the hint of sugar is just enough. I like to make lots of these to keep around for unexpected holiday guests...they keep a long time in a cookie tin.

    Recipe #395355

    This very unusual recipe came from my husband's step-grandmother. I'll be honest with you: people who try this either ADORE it and clamor for the recipe, or take a bite and say, "hmmmm....innnnteresting?" (then don't finish it.) Happily, the former outnumber the latter! If you're like me and really love the sweet/sour/salty combination, you'll love this. I serve it at buffet dinners on a big glass tray, with each individual mold atop a curly lettuce leaf, and dolloped with a bit of homemade mayonnaise. (Note: the "cooking time" is actually "chilling time.")

    Recipe #395331

    A web search for "Chicken Imperial" fetches up many different dishes that are nothing like this one, which was given to me by a dear departed friend. I make it every year on her birthday, remember all her wonderful ways, and serve it over rice to my grateful husband with a crisp salad of fresh greens! (Vegetarian confession: I have used the same marinade on slices of baked firm-style tofu, and it's absolutely delicious!)

    Recipe #395081

    After carefully perusing the other Cuban black bean dishes here, I decided this one is different enough to offer. Served over brown rice, with all the toppings, it's a power-packed veggie plate! For guests or family members who do eat meat, a good roast pork loin, grilled chicken, or lime-barbecued shrimp would round out the meal. A salad with a sweet citrus vinaigrette and sliced fresh oranges would make this a feast!

    Recipe #395076

    One of our favorite friends Tessie brought us a batch of these, and shared the recipe, that she and her husband call "Aunt Pearline's Chewies" , although they are really quite crunchy, and utterly delicious with a cold glass of milk!

    Recipe #394233

    I needed a side dish to go with some wild-caught salmon I'd marinated in a teriyaki sauce, and found some whole-wheat orzo pasta in the pantry. I threw this together, and WOW! Add some braised spinach or kale, a fresh fruit, and what a nutritious dinner you'll serve!

    Recipe #393627

    A variation on similar recipes found here, which I created after experimenting with different herbs. Perfect snack or hors d'oeuvre for cheese-a-holics!

    Recipe #392689

    Good old childhood favorite with an Oriental twist---easy to throw together for a quick supper. Delicious served alongside a baby-greens salad with sweet citrus vinaigrette.

    Recipe #390327

    Fresh-picked mint and summer tomatoes make this healthy salad a nice addition to a picnic or a barbecue buffet.

    Recipe #384592

    A sweet-savory vegetarian stew, full of vitamins, that can also be served over rice. I have served this with a bowl of deli-roasted chicken, diced, for non-vegetarian guests, so this would make an ideal buffet offering for a mixed group. Homemade naan bread and grapes make good accompaniments.

    Recipe #368858

    Easy to make ahead, a bit unusual, and always a hit! Creamy molten cheeses and savory olives and walnuts blend into a rich spread.

    Recipe #368792

    A good way to use leftover grilled tuna the next day. Incorporating many of the elements of the classic Salade Nicoise of southern France, with a bit of a "southern USA twist" (sweet pickle relish) this is wonderful over fresh spring baby greens

    Recipe #364084

    I never met a lentil I didn't like, and any kind will work (yellow, red, green,) in this hearty and filling vegetarian main-course soup. I created it when I found an almost-empty bottle of couscous spices, bought in France a couple of years ago. The product is called "ras el hanout" which I am told translates roughly as "top of the spices," and is a blend of (if my French translation is correct) black pepper, garlic, cinnamon, ginger, mustard, clove, nutmeg, and red pepper. It is available online at http://www.zamourispices.com/raselhanout.html. Complex and unusual, and adds great zip. This is a delicious meal with a simple salad and some crusty artisan bread. It tastes even better 2 days later, and freezes well.
