This is a favorite recipe around my house. I found it originally on foodtv.com as one of Emeril's recipes. It's definitely more of a winter dish as it's filling and comforting. You may use vegetable stock but if you can use shrimp stock or seafood base dissolved in water.
I got this recipe from a co-worker who brings it to every pot luck dinner. It is really so very good and makes a large batch. If you're making it just for family I'd suggest halving the recipe. Nice change in pasta salads and makes the occasion seem special. Note that you must start making this the day before you plan to serve it.
The mediteranean deli down the street makes the most awesome eggplant. After asking for help on the boards, I finally discovered its Turkish and/or Greek name. This recipe is from El Cafe Griego - it sounds the closest to all I've looked at. I can't wait to try it.
It is my understanding that GORP stands for Good Old Raisins & Peanuts....this is my take on it. It's a favorite around my house but watch out because the combination of sweet and salty can be very addictive.
Tyler Florence made this relish or at least one close to it on his Thanksgiving special. I was intrigued by the idea of a cranberry dish where you didn't cook the cranberries so I decided to try this for our Thanksgiving dinner - I loved it - couldn't stop eating it and neither could the others. Try it - the fresh flavors are wonderful! Although it's not cooked the dish must sit for awhile so I put that under the cook time.
This is in response to a request on the boards for an Amish fruit bread...this is the closest I found. It comes from an old community cookbook, the proceeds of which went towards the preservation of Hermann, Mo's German Heritage. Note that the fruit must be soaked over night and I haven't added that into the times here.
Growing up, I had never eaten or even heard of a creamy cole slaw dressing...this was the only one my Mom ever made...to this day I love it. A nice change from the mayo based recipes not to mention this one works better for cook outs or picnics where you don't want milk or mayo based salads. If you want it sugar free - just use sugar subsitute
