Parmesan cups make for simple canapes

No word of a lie, this will probably be the easiest recipe I will ever post. There is one ingredient, four simple steps, and it’s virtually impossible to screw up (…this coming from a person who tends to ruin a lot of dishes). I filled these tiny bowls with a simple crab salad, and in the past, I’ve used them for bite-size caesar salads. Pain perdu "grand luxe" en sandwich. Shamrock Shooters.

Peanut Butter Reindeer Cookies.

I love the chocolate antlers... ... and the adorable fat little faces. It doesn't get any more festive or Christmasy than this. They're perfect for taking to a Christmas party if you need something fun, fast, and easy to make (unless, like me, you run out of both red M&Ms and chocolate-covered pretzels, but that's beside the point.). I made these using just regular peanut butter cookies because I was having a craving only peanut butter could fix, but they would work just as well with sugar cookies... or even gingerbread!

Cabernet Braised Short Ribs and Mushroom Risotto

I have been finding that recently I have been tying many of my great memories with friends and family to food. For example, I can't remember a specific christmas by the year, or by how much snow we got, or what my christmas presents were, but jog my memory of what we cooked for 'christmas eve-eve' dinner? Now I remember. It works the other way too. Lobster crosses my mind? Caramelized Onion, Mushroom & Gruyere Tartlets.

Pizza Party

For us that means pizza time! Or in this case: pizza snack time. Swedish meatballs. Whenever i make marinara & meatballs, i almost always make turkey meatballs. not only because it's a healthier option, but really, it's more delicious! If you don't believe me, please try it for yourself. your friends and family might not even notice that it's turkey. it's that good. so when i decided to make swedish meatballs, i of course used turkey. you can sub the turkey for meat or pork or a combo of both in this recipe but i highly suggest you use turkey!

Mise en place - meatballs. Grilled Goat Cheese and Roasted Red Pepper Pesto Sandwich. I had a bit of goats cheese to use and I was thinking about just crumbling it over a salad but then I thought, no I can do something more creative with this. While I was looking through my fridge for ideas I noticed some of the red peppers that I had roasted and frozen in the fall and I knew that the sweet and smoky roasted red peppers would go perfectly with the tangy goat cheese. Right beside the red peppers was some bread and I recalled my experiments with pestos in grilled cheese sandwiches and I knew that I would have to try making a grilled goat cheese and roasted red pepper pesto sandwich.

April is National Grilled Cheese Sandwich month and that was all the excuse that I needed to try out some new grilled cheese sandwich recipes!

Not too long ago, while I was devouring a batch of the ever so addictive jalapeno popper dip, I was thinking about other ways to enjoy that amazing flavour combination and the idea that stuck was the one for a jalapeno popper grilled cheese sandwich. As soon as I had that thought I knew that I would have to try it and this was the perfect time! The basic idea was to incorporate the flavours and textures of jalapeno poppers in a grilled cheese sandwich and the first step was the jalapeno peppers themselves.

I really could not see biting into a perfectly grilled sandwich with all of the melted gooey cheese and hitting hard raw jalapeno peppers and although pickled jalapeno peppers would likely have done the trick I decided to take the extra step and I roasted the peppers first. Sweet Potato Gnocchi with Gouda Cheese Sauce. This morning I was looking at my home page and I realized that there is a lot of orange sweet potato and pumpkin going on. Considering the time of year I think it is very fitting. Maybe I should go red and green when Christmas comes around? Got any green and red recipes that I can try out for Christmas? In keeping with the autumn orange theme I got the idea to try a sweet potato gnocchi covered in gouda cheese sauce.
