Simple muffins from scratch with a surprise filling. They are not too sweet. The original recipe also suggests substituting another fruit, or steamed carrots, for the plum filling. I tried it with blueberries, most of them stayed in the middle but they rose to the top on a few of the muffins. You could also use jam. For ZWT7, from ricettedalmondo.it
Delicious non-alcoholic drink. Use Vanilla, Cherry, Orange, Raspberry, Almond, Hazelnut, Caramel or any other flavor of syrup. This recipe is a little lighter than other Italian soda recipes. For ZWT7. From caressrecipes.
I love Kalamata olives, and find that they add a rich, savory flavor to my meals. (I get mine from big lots, look for them by the specialty foods in your grocery store.) This simple salad is a great use for leftover pasta - or you can make pasta just for this recipe. The ingredients are all msg free and low in free glutamates - if that is not a concern for you a few halved cherry tomatoes would be a great addition. This make three small or two large servings.
I love steamed fish, but my husband doesn't. This is the only way that I can get him to eat fish that isn't fried or raw. :-) The curry flavor is not spicy, and helps tone down the "fishiness" of the fish. If you can use fresh spices, the flavor will be better.
This recipe is inspired by my favorite curry recipe. For the ZWT6 Wild card challenge No Nonsense Nibblers.
Smorrebrod is an open faced sandwich from Denmark. There are several great remoulade recipes on 'zaar to choose from. This recipe makes one sandwich, but is easily multiplied to serve more. From Saveur magazine, for ZWT6.
A light dip or sandwich spread. This recipe is from a finnish website. I translated it with the auto translator, the only ingredient that I couldn't figure out was "1 tl hienonnettuja kuminoita" which translated to "1 teaspoon chopped rubber witch." Rosslare was kind enough to let me know that it is ground cumin (the plural is very similar to rubber witch.)
I would use a good yogurt for this recipe - some brands are watered down and held together with gelatin, they don't work nearly as well in recipes like this where you want a thick, rich dip. Cooking time is chill time. For ZWT6.
