“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

Shrimp Pancakes- Definitely a Dinner Dish

by TT October 27th, 2014| Appetizers, Main Dishes, Recipes, Tapas Monday
Pancakes are one of my favorite breakfast dishes. Whether it's making them at home on a weekend morning or finding them with some interesting filling at a restaurant, I sure do enjoy them.  However, almost every pancake that I have made has tilted toward the sweet.  Zucchini

Fresh Corn Cakes- Local Produce in a Delightful Package

by TT August 25th, 2014| Appetizers, Recipes, Side Dishes, Tapas Monday
Last Tapas Monday, I made a menu that placed a spin on southern flair.  I started with pulled pork, which I let simmer in a mini crock pot for the afternoon.  It was incredibly tender by the time our 8 o'clock dinner rolled around.  Rather than serving it on
