This is a delicious, attractive dessert, perfect for a children's birthday party. The crust is made from cookie dough pressed into a pizza pan. After the crust is baked and cooled, it's frosted with sweetened cream cheese and decorated with slices of fresh fruit. Chill well before serving.
My husband begs me to make this dish. It is a surprisingly great mixture of flavors. You'll love it! Feel free to tailor the ingredient amounts to your taste. This is how we like it, but it is quite flexible.
Roasted potatoes mingle with fresh spinach in a sauce of garlic, butter, sea salt and fresh rosemary. Finish with a drizzle of olive oil and/or a good shredded hard cheese like Parmesan or Pecorino if you like.
An overnight salad using ramen noodles, cabbage, chicken, almonds, and green onions. This is GREAT -- one of my husband's favorites and it serves a ton of people. Try substituting cashews for almonds and a dash of sesame oil for sesame seeds.
A delicious and easy spread that always gets many compliments. Serve it with somewhat bland crackers to taste the smoked salmon. You can add some chopped capers for more flavor, if needed. I usually serve this on a nice plate and put the spread in a mold before serving.
Yowzers! Sweet and hot salsa with tangy mangoes and habaneros. Great with pork, chicken or fish or just with chips. You can omit the habaneros and add red bell peppers for a non-spicy version, but then again, why would you want to? Remember, ALWAYS wear gloves when working with habaneros!
