Smothered in white cheese and filled with blackened chicken and black beans, these enchiladas are one of the most popular dishes at PR's Taco Palace in Winter Park, Florida. I created my own version and I like it even better than theirs! At the restaurant it's served with refried beans and rice, but I think a fresh salad is a better complement. Enjoy!
Originally from the Looneyspoons cookbook, this is low fat! This is a great recipe for using up the leftovers after we have grilled a large pork loin - if you also have pork that is already cooked, just add it to the dish in Step #2. This freezes very well! Just microwave and add a salad and/or bread for a quick meal
Need a quick chocolate pick-me-up? Don't drown yourself in chocolate sorrows and blow the bank in fat grams. A small piece of this will satisfy your craving but you'll keep your slim figure...your best revenge! Your favorite nuts on top are optional!
The perfect Spanish tapas! These disappear quickly at parties; there's something about the mix of flavors that becomes addictive. You control the heat: the more red pepper flakes you use, the spicier it will be! This hors d'oeuvre is best when it marinates at least two or three days.
This is great for potlucks or barbecues - so much more flavorful than regular coleslaw. The original recipe is from Bobby Flay but I changed it a bit. Note: the farther in advance you make this, the better it gets!
When Sex & the City was on HBO, I hosted a girls' get-together every Sunday night, complete with cosmopolitans and champagne. This baked brie got the most compliments and there were never leftovers. Note that this can be made in advance and put in the oven when your guests arrive - the house will smell good! The recipe is originally from Gourmet magazine.
France meets French Polynesia! Exotic coconut, banana and cinnamon island flavors complement the rich creamy, buttery, orange staples of the French countryside. This is an easy breakfast or brunch meal since it's all made the day before (the 12 hours passive cooking time is when it sits in the refrigerator overnight). Serve it directly from the baking dish...no syrup or butter needed!
Ah, the comforting feeling of a big pot of chicken and dumplings on the stove! Enjoy an Asian twist with a lighter sweet and sour style broth and dim sum dumplings. Easy to make and flavorful! I have updated this recipe to reflect changes graciously suggested by expert RSC#9 contest reviewers.
This outstanding recipe is different from the other Pignoli submissions on Zaar. It's originally from the King Arthur Flour company and you can buy the ingredients to make them on their web site www.kingarthurflour.com. (I don't work there but I'm a fan of their products.)
Although I've never met her, Cynthia in Atlanta sent this to me via an e-mail recipe exchange - something like a chain letter where you're forced to reveal one of your all-time favorite recipes or some horrible evil thing will happen to you. She said: "I make this on nights when I’m working and tired but want something a little more sophisticated than hot dogs." It was really good!
My boyfriend had no idea it was just cream cheese inside. He thought I had spent lots of time making a special filling. Next time I may try one of the cream cheeses they sell with flavoring already in it, like herb or sun dried tomato.
