I found this recipe on MSN and since it sounded so good, I made if for a girls-night I'm having. I had a taste and it's unbelieveable! Here's what MSN says about it: "Reminiscent of a fancy martini, this sexy drink is perfect for a gathering of friends. The colorful garnishes, made of tiny fresh melon balls, are easy to make and add an impressive finishing touch. But be forewarned, the melon soaks up the punch, so be careful snacking!" :)
This is a variation of Mysterygirl's panini recipe (Recipe #16432) that I came up with when I had a craving for Italian sausage. I must say that it turned out really great, but try it for yourself! Amounts are for one sandwich - just multiply as necessary.
I came up with this recipe just by looking at some items I had on hand. It's a very creamy pasta dish that's fairly similar to a Carbonara, but doesn't use eggs. My dinner guest and I thought it was great, but you be the judge! The recipe makes two generous servings.
This potato salad was one of my Nonna's (grandmother) most-loved recipes. Our whole family (and it's big!) loves it and we always think of her when we make it. It is simple while still being full of flavour. The salad is best served warm or room temperature. You don't absolutely have to love parsley to like this dish, but it would help a little. :-) Please note: amounts are approximate - my grandmother never wrote anything down, so we go by taste. Feel free to adjust to your own preferences.
This is my all-time favourite blueberry muffin recipe. It's not as sweet as other muffins and it has a lighter texture and finer grain that I enjoy. The recipe comes from "Have Your Cake and Eat it, Too" by Susan G. Purdy.
I found this recipe in Kraft's What's Cooking Magazine for Spring 2005. I think it is a really delicious dish and I hope you all enjoy it as much as I have! Note: reserve 2 Tbsp of the pasta cooking water - it's not listed in the ingredients, but you'll be needing it later.
This recipe makes the absolute best tiramisu ever! It's so (deceptively) light and creamy, with a lovely coffee/amaretto taste. It gets rave reviews every time I make it! Best made a day ahead. The recipe comes from the ladyfinger cookie package. Cook time is approximate time to make coffee.
This recipe is posted in response to a request. I found it through a Google search. I've never tried the recipe, nor CB's mac and cheese, but it sounds like it would be really good! Note: times are approximate.
My mom made this risotto for us fairly frequently as we loved it so much. I got this recipe from "Italian Cooking" by Capalbo et al. I was forced to find an actual recipe since my mom doesn't have her recipes on paper (you know how it is :)) and this one comes very close. Yes, it's a bit time consuming and requires a lot of stirring, but you will be well-rewarded in the end for your effort! :D
In Italy, this risotto is classically served with osso bucco, but it's wonderful even on its own!
This is a fabulously moist carrot cake that my family has been making for over 25 years. I'm not sure where the original recipe comes from but I really, really appreciate the person who thought this up! It is an extremely quick and easy cake to make, but everyone will rave! For an even more decadent treat, frost the cake with your favourite cream cheese frosting.
