Fried Pickles

Print PDF Fried Pickles – (recipe and video tutorial follow) – About a year ago, I tried my first fried pickle. My husband had went out to this restaurant for a work meeting that day and brought home his left overs. He was super excited and said “you’ve got to try these, they are so good!” So I was like OK, I like trying new things and I took a big ole’ bite of my first fried pickle. And, it was delicious. A couple of bites in though, it was a little too spicy for me (yes, I’m a baby when it comes to spicy stuff). So, I decided to make my own recipe...

Alcapurrias

Print PDF Alcapurrias – (alcapurrias recipe and video follow) – OK, I have been getting a lot of requests for this one so I’m going to do it….. although I was totally going to do it anyway :) because I love alcapurrias. This is yet another one of those delicious Puerto Rican foods that I am hopelessly addicted to. I think one of the things that I really love about them is all of the memories that I have associated with them. My awesome mother-in-law makes them every Christmas and then at some of the random family gatherings too. When we show up at the house, we are...

Goat Cheese Tartelettes with Fresh Fig Compote

Print PDF Goat Cheese Tarts with Fresh Fig Compote – (recipe and video tutorial follow) – So, I’m nineteen weeks pregnant now and the cravings are going strong – lucky for you :). That means I’m in the kitchen making stuff that I don’t make on a regular basis, but more for special occasions. After all, twenty four goat cheese tarts is hardly good to put out at the dinner table for the kids. Although, now that I think about it, they may like the idea, they did destroy them pretty quickly. Anyway, this is a great dish to make as an appetizer for parties or...

Roasted Red Pepper Cheesecake

Print PDF Roasted Red Pepper Cheesecake – (recipe with video tutorial follow) – If you’ve never had a savory cheesecake, let me tell you that you are in for a real treat! Oh, maybe I should explain what a savory cheesecake is. Well, a savory cheesecake is one that is not sweet. Sweet and savory are kind of like opposites. So, a sweet cheesecake would be served for dessert, and a savory cheesecake, saaaaay like a roasted red pepper cheesecake, would be served as an appetizer. We have some friends coming over this weekend and we’re going to go hiking and then grill...

7 Layer Dip – Greek Style!

Print PDF 7 Layer Dip (7 layer dip recipe with instructions and video tutorial follow) – 7 Layer dip is one of those things that you find at like every get together you go to right? So, how about we put a fun little spin on it today! I took this over to my in-laws last week for the Fourth of July party and it was a super big hit. Everyone sat at the table ignoring the regular favorites like the french onion dip and the chips and salsa – not that it’s a competition, but if it were, the Greek Dip would have taken first place in the great chip and dip race to the empty bowl...
