This chocolate syrup recipe is made with raw organic agave nectar and unprocessed cocoa, which is great for diabetics and health conscious consumers wanting to avoid sugar, corn syrup, and artificial sweeteners. This syrup is great on ice cream, in coffee, and any recipe that calls for chocolate syrup!
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.
A colorful alternative that tastes as good as it looks. Even better the next day.
A Vegetable Salad
This is a classic three bean salad that is good for vegetarians, and meat eaters alike. My four year old will eat it, and she is not crazy about beans. So we named it after her. Allow your three bean to chill and marinate in the refrigerator for up to six hours, you can of course eat this right away. I however find that it is much better after it has had time to soak in all the flavors of the “dressing”.
This is a zesty and rich version of a bean salsa. I make this to take to work for potluck carry-ins and it has always been a favorite.
This is a fresh salsa mix that is easy and takes only minutes! Great with chips, or on tacos, in burritos, etc.
Black-eyed peas bring a Southern flair to a Latin favorite.
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!
A very quick, simle and tasty salad to meat dishes.
This version of guacamole has a fresh taste and a bit of a bite.
An easy side dish for your summer barbecue or 4th of July cookout.
This great recipe for fresh corn also uses fresh tomatoes for that peak-of-the-summer flavor. Fresh corn gets so cheap in the summer, might as well use it whenever you can.
When your taste buds are ready for a challenge, whip up this spicy salsa with heat from Tabasco, cayenne pepper, and a jalapeno.
Can't get enough garlic? Add this salad to a meal of pasta and garlic bread for a garlic trifecta.
"Cooking" doesn't get much easier than this. Not actually cooking at all, since you just blend the ingredients together and call it a day. Hey--if it works, it works.
This easy dip looks like a regular block of cream cheese. But there's a spicy surprise inside.
Taking a meat break? These flavor-packed wraps are plenty hearty, thanks to olives and avocado. (See our "How to roll up a wrap" article.)
