"As one who enjoys afternoon tea and uses it as an occasion to entertain easily without a huge time commitment, these small tea sandwiches are invaluable. And most guests will depart within an hour and a half. Goat cheese is SOOOOOOO versatile; there are so many ways to make these simple tea sandwiches. Thinly slivered roasted red pepper, patte"
"I have been using this recipe slightly altered for years, and it is still my favoriet. I salt and pepper the scallops and then dust them lightly in all purpose before putting them in the hot skillet. Two-three minutes on each side following rest of recipe and you will NOT be sorry. I grow lemon thyme in my kitchen herb pots so I always have it on..."
Put in the crock pot earlly in the morning for dinner, or late the night before for lunch the next day. It looks lilke it has a lot of ingredients, but it is really, really easy. Please keep ALL of the sauce. The pulled pork reheats on low in the crock pot with the leftover juices. This will be on our table on the 4th of July!"
"ONLY RECIPE FOR BRAISED RIBS YOU WILL EVER NEED!!
This is nearly identical to a recipe for red wine braised beef ribs that was shared with me by the executive chef at a very expensive Atlanta restaurant years ago. I cannot tell you how many times I have made these! I would give this recipe 6 stars if I could. Get the English cut ribs if yuou ca"
"WOULD GIVE THIS TEN STARS IF I COULD!!! I hated scallops until I made this for my husband, who loves them. I tasted a bite, and two days later I was at the fish market to buy more scallops. I used sea scallops, and did not cut the scallops in half, as directed, but other than that, I followed the recipe exactly. If you have never liked scallop"
"I first tasted these wonders at the Canyon Ranch Spa restaurant in las Vegas. They served them with a low-cal, low-fat Ranch Dressing for dipping. I like that well, but we prefer ours with a squirt of FRESH lemon juice after they cool. Also, after the chips are stemmed and torn into fairly large pieces, I put them into a large bowl and "massage"
"You Will Be SOOOOO Glad you made this! I have made this or a variation of it many, many times. I sometimes mix red and yellow peppers, quartered sweet onions, fresh Campari tomatoes, halved, or Cherry Tomatoes. I also sprinkle with FRESH thyme, and Kosher or other coarse salt, and plenty of freshly ground pepper. There is so much you can do wit"
"I have been grilling Romaine for sometime, and this recipe is spot on. You can use any type of dressing; I often use Caesar. I usually cut the Romaine into individual servings before grilling. I get about 4 servings from an average head. We do this all year on our Jenn-Aire, so no outdoor grill needed."
"I ate lunch between services at The Canyon Ranch Spa Grill in Las Vegas. They served the Kale Chips with a low fat Ranch Dressing. In general, I hate Kale, but these were delicious. I now make them at home frequently. I prep the Kale, then put it into a bowl and "massage" each piece thoroughly with olive oil. It does not take very much at all. "
"A LONG TIME FAMILY FAVORITE
I have been making variations of this for years! Sometimes I use the Philadelphia vegetable or other cream cheese variations. Ham with cranberry compote and cream cheese is terrific. So is roast beef, horsehadish and chives mixed in with the cream cheese,and whatever "skinny" veggies you like. Well-drained sun-drie"
"This is "EGGs-Cellent" I have a fairly large fresh herb garden, and this is so easy if you have all the herbs on hand. If you do not have fresh herbs, please DO NOT make this dish. It is a totally different dish with dried herbs, and suffers greatly in the translation. Easy for a group at brunch. Men in my family LOVE this dish. Another winn"
"EXCELLENT ANYTIME! I made this one day when I was feeling lazy. I had some leftover roasted eggplant, so I threw that in with the other vegetables. I used a combination of olives from the olive bar at my supermarket, including Kalamata, pimento stuffed, and a very few sliced garlic Greek olives. I think that having too many types together would"
"Yes, it IS a "Southern Thing". Brought Back So Many Memories! I grew up eating this every summer of my childhood. We used fresh tomatoes from our garden. We made it exactly this way. I like a lot of fresh cracked black pepper on mine. Thanks for the memoris."
"EXCELLENT Americanized version of Mexican Chicken and beans. Couldn't be easier, and is good for casual guests. I substituted taco seasoning for the fajita seasoning as we prefer the taste of the taco seasoning. I served this delightful dish with a chopped salad dressed with a lime citrus vinaigrette, and Mexican corn bread. Just before serving"
"WOULD GIVE THIS SIX STARS IF I COULD!!! My husband doesn't care for chick peas, so substituted a can of cannelini beans, drained and rinsed. PLEASE don't use dried herbs for this recipe. It would be a totally different dish without the fresh herbs. Another winner from Ina!""
