Another one from the great Julia Child's book 'Mastering The Art of French Cooking.' Can be served hot or cold, it is tasty either way. I recommend reading the directions a few times over before preparing, to avoid confusion when cooking. Julia recommends in the book that this be served with baked whole tomatoes and green beans, and, if you'd like, a chilled rose wine.
From the master of French cooking herself! This looks like it is a TON of work (and money), but I can't even begin to imagine how delicious this must be. I am speechless after reading and typing this recipe! There is really no way that I could estimate the time on this.
Not like the other Ghetto Nachos posted here, these are made with Ruffles Potato chips! I know it sounds odd, but they really are good. You have to use Ruffles though, not generics or the Lay's equivalent. I got this recipe from a friend of mine.
This is a tasty Chambord cocktail that I came across at a bar in Kansas. They are very tasty, and pretty too! One of my favorites to serve at parties. You can also serve them as a shot, or chill in a plastic squirt bottle for camping trips (classy, I know!) NOTE: By 'lemon-lime soda' I mean 7-Up, and by 'carbonated grapefruit drink' I mean Squirt. For some reason I could not figure out how to get it to let me post the brand names.
A great treat for movie night! Don't be intimidated about the idea of popping your own corn...it really is just about as easy as nuking it! Microwave popcorn isn't strong enough to hold up under the caramel, so I wouldn't suggest trying it.
This is a very unusual southwestern-style salad. If you like jicama, cilantro, and corn however, you will enjoy this! I recommend you try it with another recipe I posted for Halibut and Sweet Corn Tamales!
This is a tasty snack or lunch that I came up with after reading the suggestion on the back of a polenta tube. This is how I made it, but you could also use mozzarella in place of the ricotta, add some pepperoni, etc. These would also make really cute appetizers.
