these black bean, zucchini and tomato quesadillas are wonderful. alex's mom made these for us a couple months back and we fell in love.
the recipe was actually from weight watchers - the point system thing.
i was surprised at how good it was given it was a "diet" recipe. Read More
when i saw the great one make these, i knew they would go into the "need to make this" line up and probably go straight to the top. cheese straws with puff pastry...oh so good. (sorry no pictures...yet) Read More
i have tried several recipes for artichoke dip that really sucked. too dry - to heavy - not enough flavor - i have covered them all. but this recipe is the last artichoke dip recipe i will ever need. it is similar to the Loring recipe - dare i say - it might be even better.
the combination of the sour cream and the mayo make for a wonderfully creamy but not too heavy filling and the crisp baked cheese on top with the paprika is smoky and lovely. the best part is you can reheat it the next day and it is just as good. Read More
how can you go wrong with potatoes and a garlicy lemon aioli? simply
put - you can't. i make this for an appetizer and sometimes alex and i
even have it for dinner with a green salad. they are addictive beyond
your wildest imagination!
this hummus is garlicy, smoky and bright. the cumin and paprika play together very well, the garlic is prominent - but not overpowering. the lemon - as usual - brightens it up beatifully. the texture was creamy but not baby food. i definately recommend drizzling the top with a bit of the extra virgin olive oil.
