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.
This is one of the best ways to eat cranberries! It's sweet, crunchy, and a bit tart. Even the kids like this one. We've had to start making a double batch! When short on time we have combined the fruit and marshmallows the night before serving, and added the gelatin, whipped cream, and walnuts in the morning.
This is a great marinade and gives me an excuse to buy a fifth of Bourbon. It's great! Don't marinate over 36 hours cause it will get too tough. The more you flip the bag the better.
Lemon-lime marinated fish. Serve with tortilla chips and margaritas.
Basic recipe for creme fraiche. A much better tasting counterpart to the store-bought kind.
Different but very yummy cheesecake.
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!
An easy to make summertime salad. A favorite at our home.
Mix of fruit and nuts blended in a sea of Cool Whip. I am still experimenting with this recipe, check back to see of there is any thing new!
This recipe is ideal for those whose stomachs cannot handle balsamic vinegars - like mine! The cranberry and cider vinegar compliment lighter main course meals. Please note the overnight storage in steps 1 and 2 is optional, but the longer the oil and vinegar sit in the fridge, the better the flavors combine.
I found a recipe for garlic butter and thought I'd add some fresh chives for a taste treat. The guys in the camp love this butter on home fries for breakfast. It also works well on grilled shrimp.
Old fashioned ingredients put into a pie! Expect requests for seconds!
Persimmon, radish and cucumber stud this tasty salad of salted napa cabbage, onion, and fresh ginger.
This is the most wonderful ceviche ever. It is thick enough to be eaten as a meal and it is the only recipe I have found that kid's enjoy. It was made by Leo Longoria from south Texas and is perfect in every way. Any fish will do but I recommend Red Fish first. I have also tried with Crappie and it is wonderful.
Holiday or party favorite, adds color to your party table and can also be deviled for a colorful, as well as tasty, nibbler.
This salsa can be made by anyone that owns a decent knife & a cutting board. You don't need to know a thing about cooking, just know how to chop. I've had just 4 people eat the entire batch, it was so good. It tastes even better the next day!
Sauce to barbecue whole hogs (pigs) on grill or in pits.
A sweet and easy pie to bring to any holiday gathering. If your eggnog includes a dash of alcohol, so much the better.
The men of Argentina know steak, and this is the sauce they prefer. Try this spicy sauce for yourself.
I have been making this for a number of years, and everyone who has tried my ribs, chops and chicken says it has the best they ever had. Maybe they were just sucking up for a free meal, but I think it's a good rub. Sweet with a kick!!! What's there not too love???
