Bacon-Wrapped Apples: Sweet, Salty, Hot

by Jane Wangersky January 22nd, 2015| Appetizers, Recipes, Simple Solutions
When you use bacon in an appetizer, people tend to expect to find it wrapped around something, simply because it’s so easy to wrap around other foods (before it’s cooked, anyway), and it’s so good at sharing its intense flavor with them too. So on the buffet table you

Peppermint Stick Parfait

by Elizabeth Skipper January 21st, 2015| Chef Recipe, Recipes
Parfaits are a delicious frozen dessert. The term is often used now to describe layered concoctions served in a tall, narrow short-stemmed glass. Classically, though, parfaits (the word means “perfect”) are desserts made of a flavored mousse-based ice cream combined with an equal amount of whipped cream.  Here’s an

Broccoli Meatballs- an Oxymoron

by TT January 19th, 2015| Appetizers, Recipes, Tapas Monday
As I started typing the title of this recipe, I realized it sounds kind of funny to call this appetizer a meatball.  You see, there is no meat in this recipe.  I would say that it is a vegetarian delight, but my rather carnivorous husband enjoyed this dish just

Cheese Gems — A Quick Baked Appetizer

by Jane Wangersky January 15th, 2015| Appetizers, Recipes, Simple Solutions
I owe the origins of this recipe to yet another book at Project Gutenberg -- Recipes Tried and True, published in 1894 by the Ladies’ Aid Society of the First Presbyterian Church in Marion, Ohio -- and specifically to one contributor, Mrs. Fred Schaeffer. Though I’d seen similar recipes,

Pan-Fried Pork Chops

by Elizabeth Skipper January 14th, 2015| Chef Recipe, Recipes
Pork chops are a natural for pan-frying. While you can use a more neutral oil with fine results, today’s supermarket pork isn’t as flavorful as it once was. So to reinforce its “porkiness,” try frying it in lard or better yet, bacon fat. This a quick dish to prepare,

Sun Dried Tomato and Pesto Cheese Torta

by BnB Finder January 13th, 2015| Best BnB Bites, Recipes
This sun dried tomato and pesto cheese torta is a real show stopper, but it is easy to make ahead of time. Made with cream cheese, sundried tomatoes, butter, and an easy homemade pesto sauce, this wheel of goodness is also elegant. This recipe is provided by the

Zucchini & Fresh Mozzarella Cakes

by TT January 12th, 2015| Appetizers, Recipes, Tapas Monday
After last week's recipe, this week's recipe seems like a health food.  Granted the ratio of mozzarella to zucchini is about 1:1, so it really isn't a low calorie, low fat appetizer. But when viewed in perspective of indulgent cheesy bread with its entire stick of butter

Simple Stuffed Mushrooms- Quick Hot Appetizer

by Jane Wangersky January 8th, 2015| Appetizers, Recipes, Simple Solutions
Yes, I know Shirley Conran has said life is too short to stuff a mushroom, and I myself have said room temperature appetizers are best -- but these stuffed mushrooms won’t take more than a few minutes of your life, and they’re worth running into the kitchen for. I

Turkey Soup

by Elizabeth Skipper January 7th, 2015| Chef Recipe, Recipes
Meat and vegetable soups, either freshly prepared or made from leftovers, are endless in their possible variations. While meats are often repurposed into hash with the addition of onions and potatoes, they also make exquisite soups, even if all you have is the bones. I found this recipe of

Shrimp Aubergine

by BnB Finder January 6th, 2015| Best BnB Bites, Recipes
If you love the flavors of Louisiana made with fresh seafood, you will truly enjoy Shrimp Aubergine. This dish is not a spicy dish like some that come from Cajun Country, but the combination of fried eggplant with fresh shrimp in a cream sauce is flavorful and filling. This

Total Indulgence- Cheesy Pull Apart Bread

by TT January 5th, 2015| Appetizers, Recipes, Tapas Monday
If it hasn't been transparent in my years of writing for Think Tasty, I eat in a healthy manner. I do enjoy unhealthy food, but I try to limit it to weekends and Tapas Mondays. Of course, if you asked my husband, he would tell you that my unhealthy

Light Marinated Cream Cheese Squares

by Jane Wangersky January 1st, 2015| Appetizers, Recipes, Simple Solutions
Here’s an easy homemade appetizer that takes a little planning, but only two, maybe three, ingredients. It comes out looking like a fancy artisanal cheese (all the more so if you don’t manage to cut all the pieces exactly the same size and shape), but it’s made of ingredients
