This is the recipe that my friends and family still beg me to make when the grill is brought out. It's so easy and versatile, and can be tried on several different meats. I like it with scalloped potatoes, baked potatoes or rice pilaf. Try it with cilantro or oregano instead of parsley. Save leftovers for salad the next day.
There are lots of diced veggies that give this salad its flavor, color, and name. Red bell pepper to diced green onion. And a few generous splashes of hot pepper sauce give it some zip. Tuna never had it so good. Serves four.
A lot of European cookie recipes use vanilla sugar in place of vanilla extract. My mother would make a large canister in August in preparation for her cookie baking season (between Thanksgiving and the beginning of the Christmas holidays).
Three kinds of pepper turn up the heat in this creamy shrimp and scallop sauce. Fresh basil, thyme and parsley add just the right counterpoint, while Swiss and Parmesan cheese add their own sharp flavors. Perfect over fettucine!
This homemade ravioli is actually vegetarian, but no one who tries it can tell! The savory filling contains three different cheeses, mushrooms, and spinach. Although it's a rather time-consuming recipe to prepare, the results are well worth it!
