Urban Legend Chocolate Chip Cookies

Rating: 4.5 stars 839
You may have heard this story...a woman asks to buy a cookie recipe and is told it will cost 'two-fifty.' She thinks this means $2.50, but then she gets her credit card bill back and finds out it is $250.00. Outraged, she spreads the recipe far and wide to try and get her money's worth. I first heard this story 6 years ago and was given a recipe on a sheet of paper which bore the date '1986.' The supposed originator of the recipe was a well-known cookie company. I have since heard this tale again several times, with the recipe originating from different upscale department stores. True story? Who knows, but it's a darn good cookie. Here's my version.

Grilled Chicken with Mango-Riesling Marinade

Rating: 3.5 stars 13
This is a sweet marinade great for chicken. We use the chicken on top of a garden salad or wrapped in tortillas with hummus and veggies.

Avocado Mango Salsa

Rating: 5 stars 258
Yowzers! Sweet and hot salsa with tangy mangoes and habaneros. Great with pork, chicken or fish or just with chips. You can omit the habaneros and add red bell peppers for a non-spicy version, but then again, why would you want to? Remember, ALWAYS wear gloves when working with habaneros!

Avocado-Mango Salsa

Rating: 5 stars 180

This is magic in your mouth! Thanks for bringing it to the party Butch! Delicious with tortilla chips or served atop grilled chicken, pork, or mild white fish such as tilapia.

Simply Guacamole

Rating: 4.5 stars 72
This is so easy and so good. It's always the hit of the party and it's gone before anything else on the table.

Dinah's Stuffed Mushrooms

Rating: 4.5 stars 399
Delicious mushroom caps filled with a clam stuffing! Very easy, and even better than the stuffed mushrooms from that famous Italian restaurant chain.... Garnish with lemon wedges when serving.

Broccoli Cheese Soup

Rating: 4.5 stars 3108
This creamy, cheesy soup is popular with all ages and so easy to prepare.

Traditional Deviled Eggs

Rating: 4 stars 359
This recipe is the result of years of trial and error. It is an Easter tradition in our house. CAUTION: Very slippery. If carrying over carpet they will always land yolk-side down. Adjust the vinegar to taste.

Cheeky Cherry Acorn Squash

Rating: 5 stars 10
Oven-roasted acorn squash, tossed with freshly grated nutmeg,  topped with an 'oh-so-sweet & tangy' cherry-cranberry brandy sauce... all finished with lightly-toasted,  cinnamon-almond slivers. Using Swanson® Unsalted Chicken Stock brings the sauce together without the added sodium!  The smell alone of this dish will bring home the holidays.
