Baked Stuffed Brie with Cranberries & Walnuts
Rich and creamy baked brie stuffed with dried cranberries and walnuts.
Potstickers (Chinese Dumplings)
An authentic potsticker recipe using ground beef and ground shrimp instead of the usual pork filling. You can fill the whole package of gyoza wrappers and have filling left over for next time around.
Love Thai food? Love hummus? Me too. Here's a hummus with my favorite traditional Thai flavors including lemon grass, ginger, basil, coconut, lime, and sweet chili. Dip carrots, celery, chips, broccoli, or my favorite sweet pepper strips in this spicy-sweet-savory hummus perfect for warm, tropical days or for when you need to scratch that Thai food itch.
Ginger Orange Glazed Chicken Wings
Very tasty orange wings with a Chinese kick but not as gooey. Perfect for a party.
Teriyaki Bacon Wrapped Scallops
Bacon-wrapped scallops lightly marinated in teriyaki, freshly grated ginger, and brown sugar sauce. These are always a huge hit at every party I go to. They disappear fast, and then I'm always asked for the recipe. I often hear comments such as: "What an awesome combination! These are so addictive!"
Mouth-Watering Stuffed Mushrooms
Restaurant-worthy stuffed mushrooms with cream cheese, garlic, and cayenne.
Chicken Wonton Tacos
Light and tasty, these make a great appetizer or a quick and easy main dish! Kids love them! Finally a dish that makes use of ground chicken but not so far-fetched. I bake the wonton wrappers to save time and it eliminates most of the fat. Although time-consuming, you can fry wrappers in sesame or olive oil for the extra flaky shells, folded in a triangle for about 1 minute on each side. I loved the ones at Applebee's® and decided to attempt a home version. I was extremely pleased with the healthier version! Top tacos with cilantro, red onion, or sweet onion, if desired. Serve lime wedges on the side.
