    Total hit for any dinner party, appetizer, or game day. These are always a crowd pleaser. Heck, you could even freeze a dozen or so and used them as meatballs in a pinch over pasta or on sandwiches. Serve these with a side of BBQ sauce, Honey Mustard or Ranch Dressing, or Marinara Sauce.

    Recipe #300376

    This is so perfect for entertaining or to serve on Game Day. This dip stays soft and warm the whole time, doesn't get cold and solidified like many other artichoke dips I have made. You can make either the shrimp version or the crab version, or even substitute clams if you prefer. Also, I have added a small can of drained water chestnuts on occasion. ** Also, I use my small slow cooker for this recipe and just leave it on all day - think it's a 2 quart cooker ** One more note - one of my girlfriends loved this so much that she made the recipe as is and served it over linguini for Sunday Pasta.

    Recipe #300371

    This is a pretty easy recipe for a classic pesto sauce. It can be served with pasta for "Pasta & Pesto" or spread on toasted Italian bread or on sandwiches and salads... You can blend it into bread or muffin mix. You can make Pesto Pizza. You can even add heavy cream if you desire a "creamy pesto sauce". The key is to use only FRESH BASIL. Note: Pine nuts are AKA Pignoli Nuts

    Recipe #300178

    These are truly simple cookies to make & they look very festive for Birthday or New Home or Job Well Done celebrations. You can use pink & red for Valentine's Day, Green for St. Pat's, Red & Green for Christmas. They can be made basically with any additions you like, nuts, chocolate chips, butterscotch chips, I've used dried cherries and cranberries with white chocolate chips... anything goes... this particular recipe is for the Party Cake Rainbow Cookies... PS: This recipe works well with the Fun-fetti & Confetti Cake mixes too.

    Recipe #299832

    I had this once on a stop in Georgia & fell in love with it... it was so comforting I just loved it! I made it one time nut-free by substituting white chocolate chips instead of nuts for a friend with a nut allergy - I served it as Christmas Cake for her Holiday Party & I loved it even more that way - it was sweet & decadent! I'm posting the traditional recipe though, but at least you see that substitutions are not always a bad thing :-)

    Recipe #299827

    This is really "terrific crab dip". I have made this on many occassions. Every time I go to a candle party, a jewelry party, or any kind of home retail party, I am asked to bring this... It's warm & cheesy and oh so good. FYI- you can use fresh lump, frozen, or canned crabmeat... You can even substitute with imitation crab meat or shrimp in a pinch... If you want to add a little kick to this, you can stir in red pepper flakes before baking...

    Recipe #299824

    Creamy chicken dish that you can spice up to suit your taste. Basically, it's slow cooker chicken with cream cheese & any other ingredients you like. This recipe is our favorite combination and has a mexican flair. Plus, using the crock pot makes this dish simple & fills the whole house with a nice aroma. We like it best served over cooked egg noodles or rice. I gave this recipe to my cousin & she serves it by adding spoonfuls of it to pre-made taco shells. (Note: sometimes instead of onion & red bell pepper I just add 1-1 1/2 cups of frozen bell pepper/onion from the bag in the freezer secion)

    Recipe #299527

    Simple but tasty slow cooked pork roast recipe. The pork comes out very moist & tender with great flavor. This is a great recipe that you can cook in half the time on high, but mostly I cook it on low when I'm out of the house longer than 6-8 hours. You can also add additional seasonings to fit your tastes, sometimes I add Rosemary or Thyme or Basil or Oregano or Garlic or Onion Powder... etc... This also works well with thick cut pork chops too instead of loin roast.

    Recipe #298906

    I love these! They are a delicious sweet cookie from Argentina. They are a sandwich cookie - biscuit type cookie with Dulce De Leche in the middle then rolled in coconut. Sometimes they're called "cornstarch cookies". My mother-in-law first introduced these to me. She would make mine with crushed nuts or shaved white chocolate on the outside though as I have an allergy to coconut. Also, you can add 1 tablespoon of cognac for the traditional recipe, but I usually don't. ** You can buy Dulce de Leche in Spanish grocer or some of the larger supermarkets sell it by the condensed milk, if not, follow below... For the Dulce de Leche: Pour the two cans of condensed milk into a double boiler set over low heat. Cook milk, stirring once in a while, for 2-4 hours, until mixture thickens and becomes caramel-like. Remove from double boiler and refrigerate until needed. Mixture will firm with chilling.

    Recipe #298414

    Cheeseburger Rice - Yummy! Great side-dish. Made this by just adding things together. Brought it to work for a party & everyone loved it! My girlfriend now makes this as a side dish once a week by demand of her children... I'm sure there are many other things you can either add or omit to suit your taste.

    Recipe #298370

    BBC Cocktail (Baileys, Banana, Coco Lopez) is a decadent frozen dessert drink. They are perfect for summer blended with ice. My co-worker introduced these to me. Think she first discovered them on a cruise vacation then recreated them back at home. They are the latest rage amongst our circle of friends now. Some people add a dash of pineapple juice too, but haven't done that yet. Also, can be made with fresh banana blended in as well.

    Recipe #298166

    Just a quick way to enjoy fresh brussels sprouts instead of plain boiled, steamed or grilled. ** I use the Italian Bread Crumbs that have Parmesan Cheese already in them **

    Recipe #295167

    Taken from Sophia Loren's "Recipes and Memories" Cookbook, this tiramisu is incredible and it's one of the better traditional tiramisu recipes out there. I'm all for shortcuts, but some of the tiramisu recipes I've come across just ruin the final outcome by taking too many shortcuts & using too many substitutes. I've made this plenty of times and always get rave reviews. It's pretty close to perfect and certainly tastes homemade as it is. For those of you who don't know, Tiramisu is a cool, refreshing Italian dessert AKA "Tuscan Trifle". It can be prepared individually in custard cups or in one larger baking dish (that is this recipe). Also, this recipe calls for liquor to be used, however any of the imitation flavorings or liquid flavorings can be used instead.

    Recipe #294303

    This is my Grandmother's recipe for Pizza Gain (AKA PizzaGaina, Pizza Gaina, Pizza Rustica, Italian Easter Ham Pie, Italian Ham Pie, Easter Pizza, Pizza Chiena, etc.). There are many varieties out there depending on the region of Italy you are from. My family makes it in their traditional style from their village in Naples (Napoli) Italy. There are some areas that use sausage or hard boiled eggs, this one does not. This is also the recipe for a very large pie. I make it in my roasting pan without the rack in it. It is meant to be divied up & shared. I give a hunk to about 6 different people. The story, as its been told to me, is that during Lent & the 40 days of fasting... this Pizza Gaina was made by the Italian women on Good Friday as an abundance of meat & richness that was abstained during Lent. It was prepared, cooked, and chilled on Good Friday, but could not be cut & eaten before noon on Easter Saturday. Although some people serve it on Easter Sunday. Many Easter dishes were made in advance so the local Priest could come and Bless the prepared foods for the Feast of Easter. My family would all gather at my Grandparents house on Saturday & enjoy it together with our Aunts, Uncles, & cousins. It's a tradition that I'm glad to continue to keep those memories going. You can make your own pizza dough for this or purchase it. I sometime buy it at our local pizzeria. This is served chilled. When heated, becomes runny. Also, I cut up all the meats & mozzarella the night before so it's ready to go Friday. I also put a heat-proof oven liner on my bottom rack in case anything oozes out. * Want to specify almost everything is cubed or cut to little slices cubed... Also, please read the ingredients thoroughly, like the capicola is the HOT capicola, proscuittini isn't listed so I made the notation... etc. ** See photos for stages of preparation from start to finish ** Also, for ingredients, I was able to find all of the meats, fresh basket cheese, and fresh mozzarella at the deli-counter in my local supermarket and they are also found in Italian Specialty Shops or Deli's.

    Recipe #293899

    Another one of my Grandmother's Traditional Italian Recipes. This is a little time consuming in the prep. phase, but it's more than worth it in the end. There is nothing like this when you taste it. This is by far one of my favorites, and my brother's favorite, and my husband's favorite, and so on, & so on... :-) We always have it on Easter and Christmas. You can make your own pizza dough for this recipe or buy the dough already made... I sometimes buy it from our local pizzeria when I'm pressed for time. This can be served hot, warm or cold.

    Recipe #293879

    This is another one of my favorite "go to" simple meals. I threw this together for the first time over 10 years ago and it's been a constant ever since. It's hearty and rustic and is also great for a quickie vegetarian dish or during Lent. I've served this on Holidays as well. Goes great with a nice dinner salad and of course, a loaf of hot, crusty garlic bread! Oh, and a nice glass of Chianti for those who are interested.

    Recipe #293174

    A delicious rum-infused Latino beverage enjoyed any time of year, but in particular, around the Holidays... Similar in type to egg nog, but way more delicious! This recipe comes from my husband's friend's wife, Linda. The recipe is for larger servings (party-size) so you will have to adjust for portions desired. Also, some tolerance is required as you must stir constantly over low flame as to not cook the egg yolks -- also, allow time for prep. & cooling when factoring your time, other than that, the recipe is pretty easy... those are just a few cook's notes FYI.

    Recipe #293073

    This really is one of the BEST Jell-o Salad Recipes. This recipe came from my mother's cousin Antoinette. This recipe has been popular in her family for over 40 years. It is a delicious treat during the summer months as well as an accompanying Holiday dessert (Color goes well for Holiday dessert table). The recipe calls for real whipped cream, however I'm sure that Cool Whip could be substituted as the recipe probably pre-dates the ease of prepared whipped topping, but I do prefer the original recipe as it just makes it more traditional. Note: I use Strawberry Jello, but I'm sure any kind of berry or cherry flavor would work well too... I also use food processor chopper for preparing the bananas & cherries - I use whisk attachment on electric mixer for preparing the set jello & whipping the cream.

    Recipe #291356

    Hearty & Rustic Italian Pasta Dish... Always reminds me of Christmas Eve as growing up we did the traditional Italian "Feast of the Seven Fishes" NO MEAT Family Holiday Dinner. This was always a staple at that meal at my Grandparents House. This is also a quick recipe for a Friday during Lent. It goes great served with a Ceasar Salad & Garlic Bread!

    Recipe #289520

    This is a great recipe I came across via my friend Sandy who's a fabulous cook. It's quick & simple and adds a little variety to the table. Kind of reminds me of monkey bread in how it's made. ** I used Pillsbury Homestyle or Big Grands **
