A tasty twist on tiramisu using the natural chocolate and coffee flavors found in a stout beer. I used Guinness for this recipe. The addition of peanut butter to the cheese layer adds another dimension of flavor that is unexpected but marries well with the coffee and chocolate flavors. I hope you enjoy this tasty and easy to make treat!
This refreshing drink can be made anytime of the year using frozen raspberries. I don't know what magazine I clipped this from but the recipe is attributed to Patty Kile. Prep time does not include overnight refrigeration to allow the flavors to meld.
Grilled corn on the cob is a wonderful thing. It is made even better smeared with this savory BBQ butter. This could also be used to top off a steak fresh off the grill. Use your favorite BBQ suace to make this as spicy or mild as you want. Adapted from a recipe by Tom Douglas. Yum.
If you have never experienced the fun of a "Cook's Illustrated" cookbook or magazine you really need to get yourself one. They are extremely informative and their test kitchen takes the guess work out of what works and what doesn't. Their recipes have been tested to the hilt and I love the informative text that accompanies dishes. This is their Hummus recipe.
This is a great classic spinach salad with hot bacon dressing. I like it because the dressing is made with staples I always have in my kitchen so all I need to do is pick up some fresh spinach. You can add what you like to the salad: eggs, nuts, fruit, etc. This is from "Gourmet Magazine". If you've never attempted a spinach salad with hot bacon dressing this is an easy and impressive recipe that tastes yummy!
This sauce is easy to put together and has many uses. Great with shrimp or crab cakes, spread on a chicken sandwich or burger, drizzled on a salad, or just used as a basic dip. Choose you favorite BBQ sauce to make this as spicy or mild as you want. Adapted from a recipe by Tom Douglas.
This is my favorite fruit salad! I make it in the summer time when I walk through the market and smell the nectarines calling me. My family and freinds have enjoyed this salad on many occasions and I hope you enjoy it too! From the "Hay Day Country Market Cookbook".
I am a huge fan of dark chocolate. There are so many choices these days when going to select chocolate. I use the chocolate with the highest percentage of cacao I can find. We also like to add a 1/2 cup of walnuts to the batter. Drizzle some melted chocolate on top of the brownies for a special presentation. Choose what you like the best!
At big family meals growing up cornbread was often a staple on the table but depending on whose house you were at it could be savory or sweet. I prefer the latter. If you like your cornbread sweet with honey butter then this recipe should be right up your alley. From the "Hay Day Country Market Cookbook".
This is another recipe from my mother in law. I do love a recipe that has wine as an ingredient. You just have to have a glass after you open the bottle right? It's like that saying "I love cooking with wine. Sometimes I even put it in my food."
From the California Avocado Commision this is a great flavor combination. The original recipe calls for cooked sliced chicken breasts but I leave it out and serve this as a side dish. This salad is easy to throw together. Enjoy!
Okay, not my mother's but my friend Natalie's mother's sauce. This recipe was given to me at my "cooking" themed bridal shower years ago. I got a lot of really cool kitchen gadgets but more importantly everyone brought me a family recipe to treasure! Adjust water if necessary.
