I don't usually eat fruit for dessert (I like my desserts to be as unhealthy as possible, apparently). If this sauce is served with it, though, I'm pretty thrilled to have fruit for a treat...maybe because it stops being healthy once it's smothered in a rum custard sauce? This makes 1 1/2 cups of sauce.
I got this from Epicurious.com to serve at a fondue party I hosted. This was, by far, everyone's favorite fondue...and has since then been served when my guests had fondue parties of their own. Note - cream of coconut is not quite the same thing as coconut milk. I can usually find it in the alcoholic beverage section of the grocery store, with the other mixers.
This is a nice, simple salad that requires a minimum of effort and no actual cooking...always nice on hot summer days. As with most vegetable salads, amounts are approximate (I often trade the tomatoes for carrots or peas).
This recipe is an adoptee from the RecipeZaar account, and I haven't tried it yet. I will repost here when I have tried the recipe. I have to admit, I'm a little wary of using ground bay leaves (I'd always heard that they aren't digestible)...does anyone know if that's true?
From "Great Whole Grain Breads" by Beatrice Ojakangas. This is really, really fast and tasty...I like it with butter or cream cheese. You can find barley flour in most natural food stores and many large supermarkets.
I found this one in a "Best American Recipes" cookbook...I don't know if it really was one of the best recipes published in 2001, but it's really good! I had to approximate the prep time (I never really paid attention to how long it took), so let me know if I was way off.
From epicurious.com. I have to say, I had to muster up all of my willpower not to eat this all in one sitting. This is a lot like ceviche, without the long wait for the lime juice to "cook" the fish. If you're preparing this far ahead of time, you may want to add the avocado at the last minute (it will discolor if it sits for too long). I hope you like it!
These are sweet cornmeal muffins (not too sweet), with a cake-like texture. They'd be good with some currants or raisins added, too, I'd bet. I like them unadulterated and unadorned, though...I don't even think they need butter. I got this from "Enchanted Broccoli Forest," by the way.
