Slightly sweet golden squash is topped with a savory herbed cheese-breadcrumb topping. It's been my signature dish every Thanksgiving for the last 12 years. It takes a bit of work, but it is so, so worth it. Your guests will ask you for the recipe, so be prepared.
This is a very nice chopped salad with two kinds of lettuce, artichoke hearts, red onion and pimento thrown in for a bit of color and sweetness. The vinegar and oil dressing has lots of Parmesan cheese, and pours deliciously over this salad for six.
This salad is best served warm so all of the fabulous flavors can strut their stuff. The veggies are roasted for this salad and then combined with bow tie pasta, arugula, sun-dried tomatoes, basil, and a splash of olive oil.
Chicken, green chilies, tomatoes and garlic are combined in chicken broth and lime juice seasoned with cumin and cilantro in this spicy soup served with fried flour tortilla strips and shredded jack cheese.
A fabulously different salad that serves twenty and is beautiful in a bowl. Lots of color and taste sensations. Radicchio, fennel, watercress, and pecans are tossed with a lovely balsamic vinaigrette studded with bits of dried cranberries.
Strips of flank steak are marinated overnight in a very flavorful mixture of hoisin sauce, soy sauce, ginger, sherry, barbeque sauce, green onions and garlic. Skewer, grill and serve as an entree or appetizer.
Fall mushrooms give this dish a hearty flavor. Substitute vegetable broth for the chicken broth, and this makes a perfect meal for that vegetarian girlfriend your son is bringing to the holiday dinner. The rest of the family will love it too.
Pretty and delicious, too! The combination of the purple cabbage (a little sweeter than the green) and the apples is awesome. The dressing is my Grandma's recipe. You will be sure to impress your guests!
This easy shrimp salad contains no lettuce. It's perfect for barbeques or as a 'change of pace' dinner side dish. Customize this recipe with your favorite salad dressing in place of the lime juice. The lime gives it a tiny tangy kick.
Thick slices of French toast hide a delightful mixture of sweetened and whipped cottage, ricotta and cream cheeses that are flavored with extracts to your preference. Use challah or French bread for best results.
This is my mom's recipe, and it is delicious! It can be served as either a salad or dessert. This recipe can also be used to make parfaits. Simply layer the salad, extra whipped topping, crushed cookies and repeat. Top parfaits with a dollop of whipped topping. Or, to serve as a pie, pour into a graham cracker or cookie crust and chill before serving.
