    These are easy but very full of flavor. I also prefer to use turkey for this, but if you are a die hard "beef fan" go ahead and use beef. The burger is moist and delicious and the cheese, avocado and mayonnaise just make this a wonderful burger.

    Recipe #451785

    Easy flavorful roasted chicken with very little work. This is very versatile as in any cut of chicken will work with this recipe, bone in or not, skin on or not, even a whole chicken, but obviously cooking times will differ. Also, this not a dish that will do well in the crock pot. The key to this dish is the apple glaze on the chicken so don't skip it. The glaze gives a nice golden brown crisp crust which is why this dish really needs to be cooked in the oven. Now for the sauce, I use a mix of white wine and apple cider, but you can use chicken stock instead of either one, but those 2 ingredients make this dish special. Serve this with noodles or wild rice; but I prefer serving this over mashed parsnips or even a simple baked sweet potato on the side.

    Recipe #451347

    This is very easy, and pretty healthy in that there is NO cream, but there is a bit of wine and brandy, but it really is just a background flavor. This serves 8, so the small amount of wine or brandy really is very minimal. It is just a hearty but lighter soup. I mash a few of the potatoes up to give the soup a creamy texture without adding the extra calories of the cream. This is a nice unique soup. Make sure to add the brandy ... and don't forget the sour cream, just a dollop as a garnish.

    Recipe #451344

    Yes, this is deviled eggs ... and yes, it is a bit healthier. Less mayo, more veggies and flavor, and a crunchy parmesan crust make these really unique. A quality baked ham, celery, capers, and scallions make the filling full of flavor and topped with fresh bread crumbs and parmesan make these eggs really different. Even though the bread crumb and parmesan crust is browned, these can easily still be served at room temperature or even chilled. And there is a bit more chopping and a bit more work, but so worth it. These are always a great appetizer and there is never one left. Now, you probably will have some of the filling or the yolks left over, but don't worry ... spread on a toasted bagettes or as a dip with crackers. Or just save 4 of the yolks to add to a salad with dinner.

    Recipe #450942

    This is so nice for brunch, but how about dinner? I happen to love eggs for dinner. The smoky bacon, sweet potatoes, and fresh spinach and the sweet honey balsamic vinaigrette make this a wonderful egg dish. And if you don't want to make your own vinaigrette, there are several good store brands available these days. Now, I personally like to serve mine over a toasted thick slice of Italian bread, but that is optional. It is such a nice dish and not difficult to make.

    Recipe #450691

    This is so easy and inexpensive. A great alternative to the tomato, artichoke or heavier bruschettas. This has a fresh taste with a little crunch as well. A little chopped mint is optional, but is very nice and adds a lot of flavor. Now, I honestly prefer frozen peaches for this, they are always available and work great for this, but if you have fresh peaches by all means go ahead and use them. Note: I'm not giving "amounts" for this recipe, because it depends on the size of your baguette and how many you are making. Basically 2 peach slices, 2 teaspoons nuts, 1 teaspoon peach jam, and 1-2 teaspoons goat cheese per slice, but that can really vary. So top the crostini as you like. There is no right or wrong for this.

    Recipe #450444

    Lite ... Ok, these are still pan sauteed and still have sour cream, but these are much lighter. Just a few ingredients for a nice fresh fish cake that doesn't include mayo. They are easy and quick to make which is great for a week night dinner. Or ... serve these for a small dinner party. Add some coleslaw (vinegar based) for a bit healthier slaw; and maybe a lite potato salad. A healthy take on classic recipe. These will make about 8 large cakes (depending on the size you make). You can always double the recipe if you have more guests as I normally serve 2-3 cakes per person depending on the size. You can also make them smaller and serve them as an appetizer. The sauce is also great on salmon, scallops, shrimp or any other white fish. So, if you have extra, just keep it on hand.

    Recipe #450439

    This has by far become my favorite stir fry dish. It is a mix of my girl friends favorite chicken stir fry, my favorite technique and sauce for stir fry; and this is the final result. Basically, a 4 ingredient dish with a simple sauce, stir fried and served over rice with a crunch. Yes, chopped water chestnuts make this rice a great compliment. Now, for dinner, I serve some Napa cabbage, rough chopped and tossed with shredded carrots and shallots, topped with an Asian, or toasted sesame seed dressing for a perfect side. Now you can make your own dressing, but there are so many store bought dressings available these days which are pretty good. It is such a quick easy dish for a week night dinner. And ... If you're in the mood, a few spring rolls, egg rolls or an miso or egg drop soup would make a nice starter course. A couple of notes. Don't skip of any of the steps, it is what makes the dish work so well. Also ... add the water chestnuts to the rice, it really makes the dish. And the sesame oil gives it the stir fry flavor. Don't skip these ingredients.

    Recipe #450245

    This is such a nice fresh appetizer and so easy to make. Don't shy away because there are 3-4 steps; it is actually very very easy, and so worth making. The ricotta will last 5 days (approx) in the refrigerator, and very important is to make sure to use good fresh milk and cream. I like to top my crostini with the arugula then the ricotta and tomato, but feel free to skip the arugula. To me it is such a nice compliment to the creamy ricotta. These bite size appetizers and a bowl of soup or a salad can be dinner for me.

    Recipe #449994

    This is so easy and quick to put together. Take advantage of a good fresh cheese tortellini or ravioli and you have an amazing quick dinner that is healthy as well. I love the freshness of the peas and red pepper vs a heavy tomato sauce for a nice change. Just make sure to use a good pasta , fresh or baby frozen peas and fresh cheese to really make the dish GREAT! This can be used over any of your favorite pasta, but I love it over a cheese ravioli or tortellini.

    Recipe #449897

    I have to admit that this was based on "Bubbas Seafood Nachos," Paula Deens Brothers recipe; but a few other recipes got mixed in as well and they ended up blending together which I think turned out really good. I primarily make mine with crab and shrimp because the price is right, but feel free to add scallops and lobster for a spectacular dish. Just use what is available in your area. Shrimp, crab, lobster and scallops or any combination - Whatever you like best. I like to make these in individual aluminum foil pouches so each person gets their own, but you can also serve this family style. And, most importantly ... don't forget the mango salsa. It is a perfect compliment to this dish and what makes it special. And like any nachos, the condiments ... lettuce, tomatoes, sour cream, olives, avocado, and lime are a must - but use the condiments that you like best. These aren't every day nachos, but these are great party food or a great Friday night dinner. Serve these with a big bowl of soup, and dessert for a fun movie night or game night. Note: The sauce is made very quickly, even buying pre grated cheese can help if time is a factor; and now-a-days, you can even find frozen mango which will work if fresh is not available. It sounds more difficult than it is, and it really isn't a hard dish at all.

    Recipe #449895

    This such a easy flavorful dish. It does have a bit of garlic, but it isn't overpowering. It is perfect with served with mashed potatoes or even buttered noodles. Sauteed spinach on the side is my favorite side for this. Note: I purchased boneless skinless thighs and breasts and cut the thighs in 2 pieces and the breasts in 3, but you could purchase a whole cut up chicken or use any mix you prefer. I prefer the skin off for this dish.

    Recipe #449772

    This is a combination of a recipe I have been making for some time and a recipe my friend gave me. I think he combination of both our recipes works great. This is also an awesome way to use up that leftover Chinese rice from the night before. The corn gives a bit of sweetness whereas the green chilies give it a mild heat and the cilantro a nice fresh flavor. One note ... you may need 7 peppers depending on the size.

    Recipe #449761

    Another "going through" my old recipe box and look what I found. Again, I can't take total credit for this, but it was a great little recipe. Now, if you are a die hard fan of heavy cream, eggs, bacon and parmesan which make up the traditional carbonara, this probably isn't for you. But if you don't mind a lighter version with many of the same flavors, this is really good. This recipe still has a creamy texture, but smoked turkey vs bacon, and some added asparagus give this a great flavor. We are not giving up all the ingredients - eggs and pasta are still the main ingredient, so don't worry. A quick stop at the grocery deli and the rest of the ingredients are pantry and dairy staples.

    Recipe #449760

    Yes, this is so versatile. It can be a dipping sauce for fried chicken nuggets, strips/or fingers, and especially for fried shrimp. It can also be a spread for a wonderful fish or shrimp sandwich and try it on "Sarasota's Blackened Chicken Sandwich with Papaya." It is absolutely wonderful. Or even a ham and cheese panini or roast turkey sandwich. You can use your imagination. I originally had this at a local fish shack in the keys, but was unable to get the recipe, but I found one online which is pretty close in flavor. At the workinginamerican web site. So I want to give credit. I added a few extra flavors.

    Recipe #449707

    This is so easy and absolutely delicious and it is wonderful served over pork, chicken or lamb. It is a great way to clean out your pantry. It is a simple a very hearty sauce. A mix of tomatoes, olives, capers, onions, artichokes and mushrooms with a hint of cream make this a rich creamy sauce. For the main course ... try marinating the pork, chicken or lamb in just a 'bottled Greek salad dressing' all day, then prepare by either pan searing, broiling, baking or grilling; and then serve over a bed or orzo or rice and top with this sauce. Makes a wonderful dinner.

    Recipe #445530

    Yes ... another Artichoke Dip - but this has a twist which I love. A few bits of jalapeno to give it a "kick" and a mix of fresh tomatoes andsundried give it a whole new taste which I love. It is still an easy quick dip to put together and still has many of the classic flavors. I still enjoy the classic dip, but now and then it is nice to have something a bit different. Just serve with your favorite crackers, baguette slices, bagel chips or even bread sticks. Whatever you enjoy best.

    Recipe #445167

    This recipe is so very easy and quick. Perfect for a weeknight dinner but also great for a dinner party. A simple cream sauce made with heavy cream mustard and honey, a touch of dill and seasoned salmon. Now I prefer to cook this right under the broiler, but you can always use an indoor or outdoor grill, or even bake it. Feel free to use what method you prefer. A foil lined baking sheet under the broiler is quick cooking and easy clean up. The sauce cooks in just a few minutes as the salmon cooks. Serve this with Recipe #391590 and a side salad or your favorite green vegetable. I happen to love baby peas with this.

    Recipe #444749

    Now this also works with clams as well, but my favorite is mussels. This is so easy and quick to make. It is a wonderful starter dish or even a main course. Just make sure to have some crusty bread to go with it. My favorite is slice your baguette in half and drizzle with olive oil and toast. Rub it with fresh garlic and a slice of tomato for a wonderful fresh flavor. Just a Note: I didn't count the olive oil to saute the vegetables in or the salt and pepper in the six ingredients. It is still very very easy and absolutely delicious. These amounts work good for 1-1 1/2 lbs. Just double each of the ingredients if you are using more mussels.

    Recipe #444441

    A healthy fresh dip that is wonderful on toasted baguettes, pita chips, bagel chips or served with a fresh vegetable plate. It's quick to make; travels great, plus, it can set out for your entire party and you don't have to worry about it. It is just a nice change from some of the heavier rich dips.
