Fast and easy gazpacho for hot summer days. Top with cilantro and tortilla chips.
Chilled coconut milk and honeydew with an infusion of mint and melon liqueur makes a delightful start to a meal. Served in a chilled small soup cup and garnished with a sprig of peppermint. Every time it gets wows! Volume varies with the size of the melon. I use 5-ounce servings.
Years of crab-dip experience from a native Marylander and crab connoisseur come together to make healthy and truly amazing crab dip!
Another variation of the classic American pickled egg.
A Mexican style coleslaw that is great served with chips or as a condiment.
Lemon-lime marinated fish. Serve with tortilla chips and margaritas.
I originally made this recipe up to dip some bacon-wrapped shrimp in, but we soon found out that it was good on all kinds of chips and crackers also!
These lightly seasoned meat patties are a Danish home-cooked supper staple. This recipe is from my Grandma Sorenson, who raised her daughters during the Great Depression in a converted chicken coop in Los Angeles. Served with pan gravy, good Danes would have an onion and cheese bread with butter to go with this, as well as red cabbage and a good beer.
I have boiled, roasted and grilled more tomatoes, peppers and garlic trying to find the perfect salsa I get my favorite Mexican restaurant. While I came up with some pretty good salsas, this is finally it. The color and consistency tipped me off as to where I was going astray. And while I had to move away from the fresh tomatoes, it was worth it.
A brief and nice sauce for shrimp or VEGGIES!
Dillweed sour cream dip, what more can I say? Classic. It's great with vegetables, french fries, or anything dippable.
It's not your standard egg roll with cabbage inside. It's a meat-filled egg roll with crunchy water chestnuts that is easy to make.
This is a huge party hit. Men enjoy this just as much as women and are happy to ask for it any chance they get!
My grandmother would kill me if she knew I was sharing her meatball recipe with the world. But it's worth the risk since they are so good!!! Luckily, she does not have a computer.
These meatballs are not for the diet-conscious, but they sure are delicious! Makes a great sandwich or a tasty addition to your favorite tomato-based pasta sauce.
This is a tasty and healthy snack for a lazy afternoon, or a nice party sandwich cut up in halves as an hors d'oeuvre.
This unique, hot composed salad uses fried bacon and blood sausage with mozzarella and a tangy dill vinaigrette.
As the weather changes, I want a light meal, but I also want to feel like I ate something. This fits the bill.
This is a quick and easy appetizer that I received from a friend and tweaked to make it my own... I use a combination of hot and sweet bulk Italian sausage, which is easy to find in Upstate New York, where I live. If you cannot find bulk Italian sausage, buy links, remove the casings and squeeze out the sausage to cook. Don't be thrown off by the strange ingredient combination, these taste wonderful and your guests will be shocked when you share the recipe!
My mother prepared this dish (along with another simple appetizer consisting of chilled cocktail shrimp stuck with festive toothpicks along side a dish of cocktail sauce) every Christmas as far back as I can remember. It is a creamy, savory blend of easy-to-find ingredients that showcases the rich flavor of the clams. Stay with the mentioned brands and you'll never be disappointed. Serve with Ruffles(R) Original potato chips.
