    This recipe by Marlene K in California won 1st prize in the *Breakfast Favorites Recipe Contest* . According to Marlene, this coffee cake is a Christmas brunch tradition for her family & a 2nd version using blueberries is also made for the 1 family member who does not care for cherries. Frankly, I think it would also work well as a lunch or dinner party dessert. :-) *Enjoy* !

    IMHO the Brits have occ gotten a bad rep for their cuisine, but there's no doubt they have a well-deserved rep for their signature cheeses (Stilton & Blue). Altho it arguably competes w/the *Seafood Cellar* for the honor of being the top-rated seafood restaurant in Iceland, *Prir Frakkar* (Three Coats) Restaurant would be my personal choice & 1 of its featured dishes is a salmon fillet w/a Stilton (or Blue) cheese sauce that is just outstanding. This could not be easier to fix. It was adapted to suit our preferences as my copycat version that begins w/a simple marinade & ends w/a Brit-inspired Stilton (or Blue) cheese sauce. (Times do not include the marination time)

    Recipe #427368

    Found at, entered for ZWT6 & modified slightly to make it more ingredient-friendly ... this low-cal & low-fat dip uses Feta cheese & combines it w/low-fat cottage cheese. Then it adds its veggie texture. I made the pimentos optional & then added capers as 2nd option (Times were estimated w/10 min allowed for ingredient prep & 10 min for combining them. Chill time is not included). *Enjoy* !

    Approx 4 yrs ago when my grandson was born, my brother insisted I join a website called The site recently announced the winner of its "Delicious Desserts Recipe Contest" & Donna B's *Ribbon Cookies* recipe won the judges favor. To quote the site intro: "These stunning little revelations outdid our expectations. When you put that 1st one in your mouth, the light, lemony cookie & the gooey raspberry preserves create a symphony of flavor." (24 servings assumes 3 cookies per serving) *Enjoy* !

    From a newsletter I get regularly from, this recipe was described as "A little bite of cheese, a little bite of sweetness, a little bite of crispy & a whole lot of delicious". Just when you think dips have about used up all their originality, along comes a recipe like this to convince you otherwise. (Time includes 5 min to crisp the bacon while you prepare the dates) *Enjoy* !

    Recipe #411875

    This recipe from *The Best Ever French Cooking Course* cookbook by Carole Clements & Elizabeth Wolf-Cohen is everything you want a recipe to be. In my view that's ingredient & budget-friendly, a make-ahead quick-fix, low-cal & low-fat, a colorful & attractive presentation + amazing versatility. Altho I could only enter it in 2 categories, versatility is its biggest bonus as it works as a cold starter, salad course, side-dish to a meat or seafood entree served w/a starch, light lunch w/creative additions & can also be used to garnish a variety of appy platters or the like. Per the intro, "This simple dish is just the kind of thing you might find in charcuteries all over France." (Time does not include hard-boiling & cooling the eggs) *Enjoy* !

    I know there are already many variations on the asparagus soup theme here on RZ, but ... every yr at this time, I think of Andi of LMF, her abundance of fresh asparagus, her love of Maryland crab & "Sat Lunch at the Farm". This recipe found in *The Best Ever French Cooking Course* cookbook by Carole Clements & Elizabeth Wolf-Cohen met my goal in all ways. Per the intro, " The word *Argenteuil* in any French recipe almost always indicates asparagus, being the town in north-central France famed for this superb seasonal delicacy." *Enjoy* !

    This recipe from *The Best Ever French Cooking Course* cookbook by Carole Clements & Elizabeth Wolf-Cohen really impressed me as an easy way to turn an ordinary ham steak into something extraordinary & definitely company-worthy. Per the intro, "The Morvan district of Burgundy is known for producing fine quality, mild cured hams. Accompanied by this rich Madeira sauce, a simple ham steak is transformed into an elegant dish." Served w/the sauce & a simple side of creamy mashed potatoes, the pic had me drooling as I typed ... but be sure to read my note at the end of the prep. *Enjoy* !

    Recipe #366267

    1 of my favorite recipes from among my collection combines pork chops w/brie cheese. This recipe from *The Best Ever French Cooking Course* cookbook by Carole Clements & Elizabeth Wolf-Cohen is similar to it, but just enough different to make it esp appealing to me. Per the intro, "Not surprisingly, most cheese-producing regions of France have a tradition of recipes using their own home-produced cheese. This recipe combines several of the fine products of Normandy." I must confess that (as written) this recipe was intended to serve 4 w/4-oz servings, but I knew that would never work at our table, so I adapted it to serve 4 w/what I saw as more realistic 6-oz servings. I hope you'll agree & enjoy the outcome. :-)

    I was about to leave *The Essential Caribbean Cookbook* edited by Heather Thomas after entering several recipes from it when I noticed this final recipe in the cookbook. There are several mango fool variations already entered on RZ, but none resemble this one & the pic was stunning to say the least. (Time does not include chill time) *Enjoy* !

    Recipe #366120

    From *The Essential Caribbean Cookbook* edited by Heather Thomas, this dessert is untried but I found it esp appealing as it is an ingredient-friendly + make-ahead & no-cook quick-fix that takes only minutes to serve. I saw this as ideal for a light dessert finale to an otherwise heavy meal when served w/a scoop of frozen vanilla jogurt & made that a part of the recipe as a pers pref. (Time does not include chill time) *Enjoy* !

    Recipe #366108

    From *The Essential Caribbean Cookbook* edited by Heather Thomas, this untried dessert was found among her 50 recipe selections designed to reflect the abundance of exotic fruits, tropical vegetables, spices & seafood & show how they contribute to the unique cuisine of the islands. I hope you find it as appealing as I did. *Enjoy* !

    This is my final recipe to enter from *The Essential Caribbean Cookbook* edited by Heather Thomas & I feel like I'm ending a cruise thru the islands of the Caribbean. Ck out the 2 desserts I entered from this cookbook as either would be great as the finale of this meal. *Enjoy* !

    Recipe #366096

    From *The Essential Caribbean Cookbook* edited by Heather Thomas, I found this unique recipe intriguing but admit its combo of sweet & savory flavors gave it a bit of an "identity crisis" for me. Since it was in the *Vegetables* section of the cookbook, I decided its intent was to be a side-dish to a meat main-course of choice. I am not at all familiar w/vegetarian cooking & uncertain if it qualifies for it, but it also seems hearty enough to also be considered a vegetarian main-course as well. *Enjoy* !

    Recipe #366092

    I was thumbing thru a cookbook titled *Jewish Cooking* by Gail Weinshel Katz, not really looking for anything in particular or expecting to find something not already entered on RZ … when the photo of this recipe spoke to me & said “Look at me -- I’m an ingredient-friendly, no-cook, make ahead & easy quick fix. I’m tasty & eye-popping pretty too, dontcha think?” I confess to saying aloud “Ok, already, you had me w/that pic!” This recipe may be Jewish in origin, but it is such an easy-fix & my intent is for it to be all-occasion at my table & I adapted the recipe slightly to allow for that. *Enjoy* !

    Recipe #365971

    From *Taste of Mexico* by Elisabeth L. Oritz & per her intro, "Salads in Mexico are usually served w/the main course instead of green vegetables. Salads containing meat or seafood, however, are very satisfying & usually served as a separate course." I adapted this essentially make-ahead & assemble in minutes salad to suit our preferences w/options to add Old Bay Seasoning to the dressing & garnish w/avocado or lime wedges as desired. All ingredients are pre-cooked, but it seemed realistic to show that + ingredient prep time, so 20 min was allowed for prep & 5 min for assembly. *Enjoy* !

    Recipe #365916

    I visited my best friend (Magga) over the Easter holiday & borrowed a few cookbooks from her. I was immediately drawn to *Taste of Mexico* by Elisabeth L. Ortiz, found this recipe among her collection of “70 fiery & flavourful recipes from south of the border” & learned some new lessons on authentic Mexican cuisine. Her intro to the *Soups* section says “Soups are a must for the midday main meal (comida). There are 2 types: aguada (liquid) & seca (dry). The 1st term is self-explanatory, but what is a dry soup? It describes a separate course (traditionally a tortilla or rice dish) served after the more conventional soup & before the main course.” I never knew that & this “dry soup” sounds so good to me. (Times were estimated & 15 min allowed for ingredient prep + assembly) *Enjoy* !

    Recipe #365913

    Served to us at an elegant dinner party hosted by our friend, Anna Ivarsdottir, this amazing & easy-fix recipe won the 2nd place award for her in a cooking contest sponsored by Harvey’s Bristol Cream (bottled by Harvey’s of Bristol in Bristol, England since 1976). Per Wikipedia: “Contrary to popular belief, the term cream sherry does not reflect the use of any dairy ingredient. The popular story from the 1860s is that a visitor to the Harvey’s cellars was given a taste of a new blend of sherry. When compared to Bristol Milk, she said ‘If that be Milk, then this is Cream.’ & the new blend was named.” I must add “If this be 2nd place, then 1st place is beyond my imagination.” & my best advice is to resist any temptation to improve this recipe. I guarantee you will want to linger at the table & savor every bite. Have I gushed enough? *Enjoy* ! :-)

    Last fall when leaving the U.S. to return home, we stopped-over in Minneapolis for a family mini-reunion w/my Aunt, Uncle, their 7 children + various grandchildren I had not seen in 18+ yrs or even met b4. They are so lucky to all still live in the same city, but talk about the real *Luck of the Irish* - Mike (my cousin) brought his Lebanese heritage wife *Kay* into our Irish family & substantially raised the level of the cooking bar (already set pretty high). Kay is a great cook & made the the most wonderful Lebanese meal for us that included hummus, stuffed grape leaves, marinated + grilled lamb/chicken skewers & the most incredible garlic sauce I have ever tasted (just to mention a few). Thank goodness the garlic sauce was not a recipe shrouded in generations of secrecy because I had to have it to share w/you. *Enjoy* ! (See Notes Below)

    You will never guess where I found this recipe, so I'm just gonna tell you. Bored & browsing the net while DH was napping after dinner, I got my wkly RZ Newsletter & started browsing it instead. In the bottom right corner of the pg, there was an ad from HGTV that said *Dream Home 2009 is open* so I went to look at it. While taking their virtual tour of the home & on Pg 10 of 20, an ad appeared in the top right corner that said *HOLIDAY COCKTAILS* (10 Recipes for Merry Drinks). This 1 captured so much of my attention that I did not even bother to look at the rest. The recipe gave the source as *Guillermo Nassif* of the *Guadalupe Restaurant* in New York City. *Enjoy* !
