small nut shaped German cookies

Lima Bean Celery Salad

A french countryside favorite in the summer! Goes well with lamb or as a tapas offering.

Tess' Traditional Lavender Scones

Always made to celebrate the lavender harvest at our house! Awesome accompaniment to salad or with tea/coffee for a snack. Delicate and tasty!

Feta Apple Salad

Tangy tart sensation! Great side for summer get togethers and cook outs.

Roman Apple Cake

From old church cookbook. Cake is loaded with apples!

Tess' Southwestern Chicken Stew

Whipped this up for a make ahead meal for a night when time was tight. Add your favorite southwestern seasonings to pump up the flavor.
Top with crumbled tortilla chips and fresh cilantro.

Exotic Grilled Shrimp

This is a Middle Eastern - Mediterranean style recipe... EASY!

Serve with saffron rice, figs, apricots, cukes in yogurt and you have a feast!

Tess' Grilled Chicken Artichoke Pizza

Had this combo at the infamous PI Pizzaria in St. Louis and was determined to come up with my own healthier version. I was also feeling rather adventurous to make this on the grill... wow! Especially if you are able to have wood chips in the fire. Double wow!

The crust is hearty (similar dough to soda biscuit) and crisp. I came up with it in desperation when I realized my Pillsbury pizza dough was missing from the fridge!

Creamy Confetti Risotto

The true one-pot meal!

Quick Asian Chicken Salad

A great alternative to the higher calorie "Ramen Noodle" Salads... But more tasty and just as quick to whip up! This is a great entree salad for summer time dinners or to serve along side of other healthy Asian inspired sides for a themed meal.

Amazing Summer Chicken

I was dreaming of the Mediterranean summer when I concocted this recipe!

This is a colorful healthful way to stretch chicken and get lots of great veggies into your meal. Serve with your favorite brown rice, bulgar or barley for side and you have an entire meal!

Tess' Birthday Cheesecake

No crust, dense and creamy!

Mimi's Almond Bread Pudding

I am one that loves gooey warm bread puddings of all kinds... this is a recipe I came up with to quell a hankering on a rainy Sunday. It uses pantry items you probably have in hand and though it is light you can make it gooey by drizzling the warm "pudding" with Smucker's Fat Free Sugar Free Caramel Syrup (but add the calories to your final count).

The house will smell so good when you make these!!

Cheesy Shrimp Scoops

Bunko favorite appetizer

Lemon sauce (for Domals)

Best to use silken tofu but others work just the same.
Very light lemon flavor.
Use for domals (stuffed grape leaves), vegetables such as artichokes/asparagus, or on baked potatoes.

Black Bean Salad

Makes 10 half cup servings
Can be served alone or as topping for fish, chicken, or steak; or serve with chips.

Beans 'n Barley's Apple Feta Salad

One of my ol' time favorites from the Milwaukee East side landmark Beans 'n Barley restaurant. An delightfully unusual salad to accompany any meal.

Greek Pilaf

This is the recipe for the pilaf served by the infamous Zorba's restaurant at Milwaukee Summerfest.

Penne with Spinach Marinara

Cheater's Gnocchi
