Strawberry Feta Pizza

by TT May 25th, 2015| Appetizers, Recipes, Tapas Monday
When we chose strawberries as one of our theme ingredients I was determined not to use it only as a dessert. After last week's chicken salad recipe, I thought I might switch gears and utilize these berries as a sweet treat. However, as Tapas Monday drew near, I had

Proscuitto-Wrapped Asparagus- 2 Ways

by TT May 4th, 2015| Appetizers, Recipes, Tapas Monday
I love asparagus. It's a vegetable I like to use in a variety of ways. Sometimes it is simply steamed until al dente and served as a salad topping. Other times it is grilled and served as a side dish with our dinner. On a fairly regular basis I

Candied Bacon- Sweet & Salty Perfection

by TT April 20th, 2015| Appetizers, Recipes
I adore the combination of sweet and salty. In fact one of my favorite indulgences in white chocolate covered popcorn with a light sprinkling of salt. In fact, if I'm home alone on a weekend night, there's a good chance you'll find me on the couch gobbling a bowl

“Sushi” Squares — No Sushi Chef Required

by Jane Wangersky January 29th, 2015| Appetizers, Recipes, Simple Solutions
Sushi shows up often as an appetizer or even a quick light meal -- but most of us buy it ready made rather than try to make it at home. Real sushi-making does take some training and special equipment -- if you’re interested, check out continuing education classes in

Onion Goat Cheese Spread

by TT January 26th, 2015| Appetizers, Recipes
I love cooking. I love creating dishes that will please others. If I'm alone, I like tinkering with recipes, knowing that I only have my palate to please. Basically, I love working with food and thinking about all of the flavors and textures involved.  Reflecting upon my cooking, the

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

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,

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

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
