Baked Tomato, Garlic, and Basil Bruschetta Bites

Finger foods are my favorite kind of food—to eat but not to make. That’s because they usually take a bit more work to put together than the full-size versions. Luckily, that’s not the case with these delicious bruschetta bites. They’re bursting with flavor and can be assembled in 15 minutes or less! So, preheat your oven, grab a loaf of your favorite baguette, and get out the cutting board. Bruschetta bites are the perfect edible addition to any gathering, and they’re great to serve at holiday parties.

no-bake energy bites I probably should have poured a nice stiff drink recipe for you all on this loveliest of lovely tax days. Especially for my fellow small business owners who just gave half of their revenue back to the government. Good grief, I won’t even go there. Instead though, I thought I’d offer my idea of a more comforting alternative. Pasta. frites &fries - Garlic Knots - StumbleUpon Garlic Knots Most of my early food memories had to do with all the garlic dishes that my grandmother made. Preschool-me was so fascinated by the fact that Grandma smelled like garlic 24/7 and I was always so amazed that something so small could create so much flavor. My grandmother’s native Shangdong province uses a lot of garlic in their cooking so it wasn’t surprising to see my mom or my grandmother use up an entire bulb of garlic for a small dinner. Loving garlic is in my blood. When I make something with garlic in it, I tend to go nuts and use way more garlic cloves than necessary because I love using it.

Ratatouille Recipe, Provencal French cuisine Also: | Ratatouille - Classic | Ratatouille Common Method | Ratatouille Simple Method | This Niçoise dish is much more than a vegetable soup. It can be prepared fairly quickly by cooking everything together at the same time, but that needs to be done in the correct sequence to not miss out the art and the flavour of the dish. It's also true that the recipe can legitimately vary (somewhat) according to tastes, but the variations should be based on experience. The volume is also very variable. Brownie Cookies Brownie Cookies This time of year I love to go on my annual Holiday baking spree and bake all kinds of cookies. From the new cookies that I find to my all time favorites. This year my baking spree is a bit different. You see one of my favorite parts of my annual baking spree is having my mom and my friend Beth right there alongside me. Baking, decorating and boxing up goodies for our neighbors and coworkers.

Score the inside of the avocado with a blunt knife and scoop out the flesh with a spoon. Skinny Mashed Potatoes Mashed potatoes are one of my favorite things to eat on Thanksgiving, but this year since I am pregnant and on a really strict low carb diet (for my diabetes) real mashed potatoes are out (bummer). I recently started researching alternatives to some of my favorite dishes because there is NO way my plate will be without a big ole pile of mash potatoes. I came across this recipe that uses cauliflower instead of potatoes. Hmmm not a big cauliflower fan so I wasn't sure.

Chocolate Cupcakes with Flaming Strawberries Call me easily amused, but these little torch-topped cupcakes delight me. Besides being a cute novelty item for a party, I think they would add a little drama to the end of a romantic meal. I've been looking for something different to serve for Valentine's dessert, and this is definitely different. The strawberries are hollowed out and filled with a bit of liquor, then ignited with a match.

Bacon Wrapped Jalapenos Recipe One of the best grilled appetizers is bacon wrapped jalapeno peppers. This recipe is so easy to make and it only consist of 3 ingredients; fresh jalapenos peppers, cream cheese, and bacon. The jalapeno peppers are first sliced in half then seeded, stuffed with cream cheese, wrapped with bacon and grilled. You should consider wearing gloves when slicing and seeding the jalapenos because they can burn your hands. With the play offs coming up and the super bowl near this is a perfect recipe for game day. Enjoy. Magic Sauce Recipe I call this the magic sauce recipe. In part, because it makes everything it touches shimmer with deliciousness. It's magic like that. Technically, it's a riff on a chimichurri sauce - one that veered off the rails in a big way. Much tweaking has rendered it a distant second cousin. If that.
