    Healthy burgers with a gingery twist! Serve with any fixings you love, sauteed mushrooms and a slice of cheese to melt on the hot burger are TDF. These are all-season friendly: fire up the grill when the season's fine or get the broiler smoking hot when it's too gloomy outside.

    Recipe #276794

    Gorgeous combination of chorizo, tomatoes, corn and more for a warm salsa with lots of cilantro. Can also be served cold, but give it a try warm.

    Recipe #275251

    From Warren Brown, a wonderful cake for every day or any special occasion! The addition of potato starch provides even more moistness.

    Recipe #195641

    This is like a hot ham and cheese sandwich! Velvety comfort food in a dense cloak of eggs and bread, both creamy and crunchy in the same bites. I've been on a tangent to utilize ingredients I have on hand in a creative fashion and I came up with this savory bread pudding because of a need to use up some homemade bread that was starting to go stale. I used homemade beer bread, but you could use sourdough, wheat bread, or any other 'sturdy' bread just as well. I used 1% milk with great success, but please use whatever you have on hand. Gruyere or Swiss cheese could be used in place of the Parmesan. Prep time includes refrigeration time. Some might like this for brunch, but I've had it for breakfast, lunch, and dinner and it's very satisfying. It packs very well as a brown bag lunch for me to take to work too. If the ham were left out, it would make a fabulous side dish to your roasted pork loin or other roast meat.

    Recipe #192966

    This is just as easy as any cake from a box and much more flavourful. I needed to use up some pantry ingredients and this recipe is what I came up with. The Beau bought some Hershey's SPECIAL DARK Cocoa by mistake, he thought it was hot cocoa mix, otherwise it might not have been a product I would have ever purchased. If you don't have it you could probably substitute another dutch-processed cocoa but your results might not be quite the same as mine. I made cupcakes so I could portion them out to freeze some and they were rich enough to not really need frosting but please frost as you like. They came out as black as night, my co-workers asked what food colouring I added to get them like that, to which I happily replied "None!". The Beau said they were "Too chocolatey and too moist" so count yourself warned, lol. The recipe made 24 cupcakes and would make two 8" round or square cakes, or a 9x13. Adjust your time slightly according to which units you're baking.

    Recipe #192179

    This is the best applesauce cake I've ever had, much less made! Triple Apple Action flavour and it is sooo easy to make. It is very very moist and does not dry out the next day (if it lasts that long). Variation ideas follow the main recipe and other add-ins can be folded into batter, such as nuts or raisins, although this cake is at it's best when it's at its simplest. Think Less Is More. From Cook's Illustrated September/October 2006, This recipe can easily be doubled and baked in a 13"x9" pan. If doubling the recipe, give the cider and dried apple mixture about 20 minutes to reduce and bake the cake for 45 minutes. This cake is very moist, it's best to err on the side of 'overdone' when testing its doneness. Apple juice can be substituted for apple cider, but cider is the best option. Cooled leftovers can be wrapped in plastic wrap and stored at room temperature for up to two days. Freezes very well. Makes one 8" square cake

    Recipe #191229

    These were a rich, wonderful addition to our Maple Vinegar Crispy Chicken #118864 dinner at Culinary Communion. They're even better the next day! Posted with permission.

    Recipe #119160

    I think this is such a fabulous dish to celebrate Spring!! Fava bean (also called Broad beans) season is late spring and after the beans are ready to use this prepares so fast, you'll have more time to spend outside in the lengthening daylight. If you don't have access to fresh or frozen fava beans, you can substitute lima beans (not my favourite, but some like them) or edamame. This recipe is from Organic Style, 5/2005, I added a bit of garlic and garnished with a little mint. The prep time mostly is shelling the fava beans, the cooking time includes removing their outer skins.

    Recipe #118380

    Oh man, I can't believe I finally found a pizza crust I love!! I've been on a quest, trying a couple of recipes, but I wasn't ecstatic about the results so far and I'd intended to go through more of the recipes here on zaar. Then I happened to be channel surfing when Alton Brown's program was on...and what was he making? Pizza! I made his recipe and am just thrilled! The only modification I made was taking into account his comments about how to make a less-salty dough (which is how I've submitted this recipe). It's exactly what I've been looking for in a pizza crust--flavourful and chewy, especially as a thin crust, now I can have the fun of practicing my technique on stretching out the dough to the perfect thickness (or rather, uber-thinness)... Prep time includes rising, cooking time includes time needed for dough to rest.

    Recipe #115510

    This is from a Saveur, April 2005, article reviewing a book by Lidia Matticchio Bastianich, 'Lidia's Family Table'. It's simple yet sublime. I served with cheese and smoked salmon as antipasto and I can't wait to make again to take to my friends' house when we get together for our wine-tasting and chit-chat. Prep time includes overnight marinade and bringing to room temperature.

    Recipe #114798

    Spaghetti with Garlic, Butter and Oil, with Olives I threw this together one night on one of my "No Beau to cook for, it's getting late to fix a complicated meal" nights, just grabbing whatever looked good. It turned out so good and I was so pleased with the results, it was pointed out to me on zaar I should jot it down. Very simple, very quick. It can be tweaked for preference too, next time I might add red pepper flakes. This makes one serving, but is easily multiplied for number of servings needed.

    Recipe #114405

    Comfort food taken to a higher level. This is from Organic Style magazine's "Fresh Meals" cookbook, I've modified it slightly to include the orange (if I hadn't been bringing it to work, Grand Marnier would have made it in to the ingredient list somewhere). I was not orginally looking for a potluck dish, but this looked so good and so simple, I thought I could bring it to work for one of our potlucks. I didn't think it would do well in the competition we always have, but it won first place! I quadrupled the recipe and served in individual cups, it wasn't much extra work than making a "regular size" batch (regular size is how I've submitted the recipe), my water bath was just simply what might work for my quantity, I didn't follow the 2 cups water step exactly. Prep time includes 20 minutes to make rice.

    Recipe #114173

    This was a mistake gone good. I wanted to make red currant jelly but there weren't quite enough currants for sale at the farmer's market where I buy my produce during the summer. So I bought all they had and thought I'd figure out the rest when I saw how much juice came from my purchase. I came up with 2 cups of currant juice from the 4 pints I bought, then just supplemented with first the pomegranate juice I had on hand, then some cranberry juice, then finally a little bit of water to get to the 6 1/2 cups of juice I needed. You could change the proportions to suit your needs or tastes, using all of one kind of juice or less or more of another juice, you just need 6 1/2 cups total juice for this recipe. Prep time includes time to make juice from berries so about 10 hours can be subtracted for this step if you are using juice already made. Typically jelly recipes call for you to check for gel 24 hours after processing but mine were a little 'squishy' the next day, then set up great after I forgot about them for a little while, just make sure your seals are good before putting them aside. Great on English Muffins, but also good as a meat accompaniment or used as a glaze on Cornish Game Hens. The brilliant red colour makes it nice for gift giving, too.

    Recipe #110056

    This is a good syrup with a little different flavour. It does not need to be canned for finishing, just keep syrup in jar with a lid in the refrigerator. Processed in boiling water bath, it will keep for a year, if you don't process the syrup in canning jars it will keep in the refrigerator for a month or so. This is great on pancakes or on My Favourite French Toast, recipe #107988, and is also delish as a dessert sauce.

    Recipe #110028

    This is from Eating Well, Fall 2004 issue. I have always despised cooked carrots, but have found it's because I don't like them with added sugars or brown sugars and I really hate them mushy. This is the first cooked carrot recipe that I really like and have made it repeatedly. I modified the original recipe so that the carrots are cooked to the bare minimum, and I've bumped up a couple of the seasonings to my tastes. I use a smoked paprika that's a little spicy, which is wonderful in this, but you could use whatever you have on hand. I've also just used "baby" carrots as a timesaver.

    Recipe #109803

    I personally have not canned this one yet, but expect to soon. I'm posting by request, this recipe is from the USDA Complete Guide To Home Canning & Preserving. Be sure to measure ingredients exactly, but extra salt (or less salt), pepper or chili powder will not adversely affect canning results. Prep time does not include soaking time for beans, cooking time does not include time to get up to pressure.

    Recipe #109490

    I haven't made this in a few years, it makes for good gifts! Total time does not include for soaking beans overnight, but prep time includes a rough guess to prepping all the ingredients. Be sure to measure all ingredients exactly.

    Recipe #109290

    I believe I got this off the internet a few years ago when I was looking for pressure cooker recipes, it's very good with wonderful flavour. The Beau says he can't eat the commercially made stuff anymore, he likes this best! Great soup course for your dinner party.

    Recipe #109188

    I'm not a fan of Emeril's, but I have to say he sometimes has good recipes! This was from his show and it's a fabulous dip for veggies or sturdy crackers or whatever. I make it frequently, it's a great dish to bring if you don't want to bring something that someone else might be bringing, adding more or less heat for individual tastes.

    Recipe #108892

    We have potlucks at work every couple of months or so, and to encourage more people to bring things we have contests for homemade food. Our co-workers try everything and vote blindly, prizes are given to a winner in each category. If you've won for a dish once, you can't bring it to be voted on again, plus I'm usually trying to come up with something new each time I bring a dish. I was in the mood for a salad last summer and hadn't brought one before so I threw this together. Since this was for a potluck, I tried to do as much as possible in advance, making the dressing the morning of and because I didn't want to deal with the nectarines later, I diced them and threw them in the dressing as the lemon juice would keep them from getting brown, then I assembled the rest of the salad just prior to serving. I did win first place and even our vice president was asking for the recipe. You could garnish with edible flowers for a special touch. Have fun with it!
