Chef John's Oysters Rockefeller

There's much debate over how many of America's greatest recipes got their name, but that's not an issue with Oysters Rockefeller. Thanks to the rich, money-colored butter sauce, this decadent creation's name pretty much wrote itself. Serve with a squeeze of fresh lemon over the top.

This is a great bruschetta recipe based on an artichoke dip. It's always a huge hit! Try adding spinach or tomatoes!

A light, fluffy puff pastry is filled with melted Brie cheese and hot fruit preserves. If you do not want a sweet wheel, you may substitute herbed cheese spread for the preserves. Baking times are the same for the substitution.

Perfect Crab-Stuffed Mushrooms

These little goodies are the perfect addition to your next holiday gathering or even the perfect appetizer to serve before a cozy dinner at home. Everyone will be dazzled by every delicious bite (they won't be able to keep their hands off of them!) You can smile while you think of how easy they were to toss together! And the best part - I usually end up with leftover stuffing, which freezes beautifully until the next carry-in!

Capicola Canapes

Easy, delicious appetizer using spicy, capicola ham. Make sure you use fresh basil, as the flavors will not be the same if you use dried. These can be made ahead of time and refrigerated, but be sure to bring them up to room temperature before serving to blend the flavors.

A casserole dish of seasonal vegetables that is so easy to prepare. It can be made a day ahead - just reheat before serving. Lemon juice can be substituted for balsamic vinegar, and you can use baking potatoes if you don't have any Yukon Golds on hand.

Perfect Pot Stickers

Homemade pot stickers are so versatile--you can fill them with anything you want and as full as you want. And the play between the crispy, crusty bottom, and the tender parts, makes for a truly unique dumpling. These are filled with ground pork, green onions, ginger, and cabbage.
