Prosciutto Baskets Stuffed With Cheese & Pistachios

Super Bowl game day is almost here and if you’re like me I really try hard to find special appetizers to serve … not your run of the mill cheese and chili dip at my house! These elegant Prosciutto Baskets are stuffed with a creamy cheese filling and topped with crunchy pistachios for a little extra texture. These appetizers look a lot more complicated than they actually are. The trick is to use prosciutto that is sliced thin enough to manipulate, but...

Cherry and Brie Pastry Cups

Cherry and Brie Pastry Cups

When it comes to holiday entertaining I always go for the super easy appetizers. This frees my time up for the more complex recipes I plan on serving for dinner and keeps me stress-free. These Cherry and Brie Pastry Cups are super easy and incredibly delicious. The flavors of warm, melted Brie and sweet dark cherries are enhanced with a slight hint of maple syrup.

Mushrooms Stuffed with Sausage & Cheese

Mushrooms Stuffed with Sausage & Cheese

This is my go-to recipe when I’m entertaining or invited to a potluck dinner. It never fails, no matter how many I make they are always one of the first to go, usually before I’ve had the opportunity to savor some myself. But, I got wise and always make a few extra to eat before I put them out on the table lol. When selecting mushrooms for this recipe, choose ones with medium caps for best results. Using a mixture of Cremini and White Mushrooms...

3 Cheese and Bacon Stuffed Mini Sweet Peppers

Mini sweet peppers are great for snacking on right out of the bag, but they are even better when stuffed with your favorite blend of cheeses, fresh thyme and bacon. Pop under the broiler for about 5 minutes or until nicely browned and voila! You have a perfect warm and...

Not only that, Mussels are a rich source of heart healthy...

Cucumber & Green Onion Dip

One of the things I love about Summer is the plethora of fresh produce we have to choose from. Fresh Cucumbers are no exception, they are at the peak of their flavor and seem to just taste better than any other time of year. We were entertaining friends this weekend and I wanted to make it simple and enjoyable. No big fuss in the kitchen just some quality time with good friends and good food without all the stress of a...

Mrs. R’s Famous Angel Eggs

  If there is one dish that I am always asked to make or bring to a picnic or dinner party, it’s my Famous Angel Eggs. You might know them as Deviled Eggs but I call them Angel Eggs for a reason … You see, my son and nephew grew up on my Mom’s Deviled Eggs and it has been a favorite of theirs ever since. So much so, that all you have to do is say “Deviled Eggs” and...
