A wonderful, light salsa recipe given to me by my friend J.C., who claims she can't cook!
Spinach Stuffed Mushrooms
A recipe I put together for a bridal shower. Everyone enjoyed them and I hope you will too
Prosciutto e Melone (Italian Ham and Melon)
This easy and refreshing starter featuring cantaloupe and cured ham (Parma ham for instance) can also be served as an appetizer: just cut the cantaloupe into bite-size pieces, wrap them with ham and spear them on skewers for a colorful snack! Use superior quality Italian ham for best results.
Sweet Potato Hummus
I wanted something easy and fitting for an autumn gathering. I found this recipe and altered it to make it even easier to make. It is a nice combination of naturally sweet and typically savory. Serve with pita wedges, crackers, or cut veggies.
This is a healthy alternative to potato chips and taste salty and sweet like sweet potato fries. This recipe is inspired by other recipes on the internet that I have played with. The thinner the slices, the crunchier the chips.
Tomato Salsa without Onions
My mother-in-law loves Tex-Mex but has an onion allergy. After several attempts, I invented an authentic tasting salsa that derives some of it's smokey flavor from the roasted pepper. I've taken to roasting the peppers in bulk so I can always have some on hand.
I learned to make this on Guam. This is an all purpose sauce and can be used as a marinade, or poured over rice or cooked meat. You can make it as hot or mild as you like. The longer you let it sit the hotter it gets!
Fruit Skewers with Apple Cinnamon Dipping Sauce
Make breakfast or a snack just a little special by serving this healthy yogurt dipping sauce with fresh fruit skewers. Use any fruit for the fruit skewers.
Popcorn is roasted with butter and a blend of spices to make an addictive snack. I make this for watching movies or even sports.
Elegant Fig Appetizers with Goat Cheese and Almonds
This is a combination of several fresh fig appetizer recipes. The flavors of fresh figs, tangy goat cheese, salty almonds, sweet honey, and balsamic vinegar contrast to make these a delicious and very pretty appetizer. Arrange figs in a circle, tops facing in, for a flower effect and this will be a lovely addition to a bridal shower menu! If you can find Marcona almonds, use them! They are a Spanish almond that tastes like a cross between an almond and a cashew.
