We've never used it as a dip. Always with a fork or Scoop crackers as a quick lunch to impress friends. It's like a 7 layer dip with no beans.
When the produce drawer is left with just midgesof leftovers veggies, new elbows and tuna give stuff you've been looking at for a week, a whole new taste. Enjoy a full 1/2 cup serving with crackers or up it to a cup with carrots for a full meal.
This makes about 3 quarts of salad, so serving sizes can vary widely. I've used 6 so that it's easier to do a main dish or a side. It's beautiful enough for guests and the flavor is the best for those who like a strong blue flavor. You can save time by not making the gingered walnuts, just using halves.
Wonderful salad for lunch or dinner or side. We make extgra of the vinaigrette and use it for other salads as well.
Simple like the Italians make. Great side dish or vegetarian main dish with a loaf of bread
Can be done with Large and small mushrooms. If large, 1 mushroom = serving and if small 3 = serving. Also, can either grill or roast in the oven. Also makes a unique serving bowl.
I do all of our fresh fish fillets this way. Quick, easy and healthy. Stupendously easy clean up as well. This way the actual flavor of the fish is what we get to appreciate.
Simply delicious. Quick and easy for the busy homemaker. Serve with rice if desired.
For variations I have used other flavored vinegars, white wine and basalmic. I find the red wine vinegar is my favorite
This is wonderful for a long busy day and a cold night's dinner. Stick it in the oven and walk away for 4 hours. Do not peek. Do not stir. Serve with my Golden Sweet Cornbread muffins.
I put this in muffin tins to make 12 servings otherwise it can be made in a 9 inch round pan. It puffs up beautifully and the added butter gives it a wonderful shine. Can cut down fat by not using ti.
This is loaded with nutrition in spicy Souwestern Style.
Very, very tastey Sliders at room temperature. Both Hot and Sweet. Numbers aren't good but portion control is easy.
This is straight from Genoa, Italy the birthplace of Pesto. Freezes well.
Canned beans make this the fastest homemade chili ever!
This is even better the 2nd day.
Searing gives it a golden crust; high temperature roasting finished the cooking and keeps the fish moist.
Seared for flavor and steamed for tenderness, these are simple and an excellent match to just about any fish or meat entree.

The only okra I've every liked
To use with left over Panettone
A basic sauce to be dribbled over chicken, turkey, fish, etc.
Spicey change to the norm - we always make as a side to our Super Sloppy Joes. This one can be ready to eat in just 20 minutes or refridgerate for up to a week.
Homemade, from scratch is what makes this sauce so sweet & good. Make a double/triple batch and freeze for later use. A serving is calculated as one open faced sandwich. Served with a pickle and the Deviled Potato Salad I've also put on the web site makes a great meal - Retro at it's best
Highly seasoned w/ith no egg/sugar/milk/salt. 15-20 minutes start to finish
Using real Gorgonzola and no Cream this is still super creamy and rich with room in our meal plan for the pasta.
Full of flavor they make any plain sauce taste homemade in an Italian kitchen. Small so easy to maintain calories and FREEZE well for months. Defrost by placing in hot sauce.
Fantastic flavor as presented or change simply by adding basil, thyme, etc. under the cheese so it doesn't burn. Crusty topping over a soft hot tomato ... wonderful
Old fashioned Mexican way....no soaking required..only 3 hours to home made beans
Another great Left over chicken + can of soup = dinner in 30 minutes with a Mexican Flavor
If you thought you didn't like cauliflower, try this! It's an awsome treat for a festive table. Beautiful presentation and something out of the ordinary. Can be used as an entree for 4.
While cooking time may seem extremely long, the cold-fashioned way ws to serve the beans with the "pot liquor" and cornbread to sop it up.
An rich alternative to using sausage
Standard low fat recipe with the added "meatloaf" sweetness for DH
Using a food processor allows this to become so thick and creamy that using only a 1Tbl on a cracker or tomato slice easily can become the basis of a lunch or snack. 2 Tablespoons used the same way becomes a full lunch with veggie and fruit on the side
Best FLAVOR , color and crispy we've ever had - just make sure the oil stays hot so the fat is reduced.
Basic but uses small leftovers to make magic
