These can be served for dinner, in place of meatballs, with pasta and marinara (meatless tomato) sauce which is the way I usually serve them. They can also be served as an appetizer, with sauce on the side for dipping.
If you love chocolate and almonds, you'll love this! A very rich, decadent dessert I serve for special occasions. I imagine the leftovers could be frozen but, I'm not sure as there has never been any left over! Prep time does not include 3-5 hour chilling time.
These are a very rich, bar type cookie. Easy to prepare, a favorite with young and old alike. Great for picnics, potlucks, holiday cookie trays or any get together. Warning!! They can become "addictive" ;)
This recipe is from my sister-in-law's mother, (Claire), who was born and raised in Ireland.
Note: I usually make this with a mixture of "white" and dark raisins (3/4 cup each).
You can use 8-inch (for 2 loaves), or 9-inch (for 1 loaf) round cake pans in place of the 1 and 2 quart round casserole dishes.

A tasty shrimp dish in a red sauce which is very easy and quick to prepare (if you buy pre-cleaned shrimp). Serve with pasta or rice. Add a tossed green salad and crusty (garlic) bread to round out the meal.
A tasty tuna salad which is easy to prepare. I frequently make it during the Summer for a light supper, after a day at the pool. Also works well for picnics. Amounts given are estimates, I usually prepare this "by taste".
Posted by request. Every Italian family has their own version of this dish. My grandmother made it with a simple garlic/cheese "stuffing", which is the same way I still make it. It can be served as a main course or as part of the "meat course" along with the meatballs, sausage, etc.
This recipe for Wolfgang Puck's no cook gazpacho (which can be made a day ahead) was in the cooking section of my newspaper today....It sounded sooo good, I just had to share it with my friends here. (The recipe is from his most recent book: "Pizza, Pasta and More!" - Random House, $35.) There is no "cooking" time, but 2 hours chilling time.
