While not an authentic, this recipe if fantastic on korean street tacos. Its quick and easy and uses ingredients a well stocked kitchen would already have on hand. I like mine spicy so i used 1 tbsp of spicy sesame oil in place of one of the tbsp that were required in the recipe. All ingredients listed are really a guideline. There are as many recipes for Kim Chi as there are Korean mothers. Just mix and taste for yourself and add as you need. Especially when it comes to the sugar. This amount listed will give you a slightly sweet flavor. Add more if you like.
This is my version of a recipe that I read in Cooking Light. I have a square foot garden and this was a great year for my Russian Krim heirloom tomatoes. This is a very large beefy tomato with smaller seed pockets. If you use a regular hot house tomato, slice and place them between a few sheets of paper towel to soak up some of the juice. Romas are a good option. Olives would also be a nice addition. Great with a side salad for a light summer supper or as an appetizer.
I created this dip for my daughter who loves both onion dip and boursin cheese. I use light ingredients but there is nothing very light about it. I figure cut the fat where you can. Also if Boursin cheese is not available or you would prefer a more economical choice, use the herb and garlic cream cheese for equally good results.
This is a fun, easy appetizer that everyone loves and anyone can make. Even though it is not traditional to carbonara, I love to add finely chopped sun dried tomatoes and parsley. Experiment, the method is great and lots of different combos would be fun!!
Loaded with cheese and bacon, this appetizer is guaranteed to be a hit with your favorite armchair quarterback! Feel free to substitute other cheese options (smoked cheddar) or add ins (green chiles, pimento, ham, etc...) The light mayo seems to produce a creamier dip, however use regular if that is what you have.
This Rachael Ray recipe is a take on the classic Italian version. I am listing this recipe as printed, however I made a few changes that we really enjoyed.
First, I did half beef and half lamb in the meatballs. I had kale in the garden so that went in as well as a splash of half n half. Additional stock maybe necessary if you like a brothy soup or you can cut down on the amount of orzo as it absorbs quit a bit of broth as it sits. I finished the soup with homemade croutons. This was a real winner.
I have brined my turkeys for years. But I hate the clean up of all the brine and such. This method made a lot of sense and I will be trying this for Thanksgiving this year. This method came from Bon Appetit Nov 08 and there were several herbed or spiced salt options or you can be creative and do your own flavor. I chose the classic.
Veloce in Italian means fast. This was created on an evening that needed to be fast! My husband likes his with a squeeze of lemon over the top. While traditional saltimboca requires pounding chicken with sage and prosciutto, this pasta sauce has the same components without the fussiness. Serve this over pasta of your choice.
This is a recipe given to me by a friend of my moms. She makes them for Valentines Day. I highly recommend using cherries with stems, the covering process is a little slower but you will be rewarded with a built in "handle" when it comes to dipping. Using paraffin in the chocolate will result in a smooth surface on your candy. These have to be done about 2 weeks before serving so the fondant can soften into a liquid.
