This month, they asked me to participate with them! My husband has elbowed me out of the kitchen a bit in recent years (hey, I'm not complaining about his hobby--although it does make it tough to lose weight).
But, for dinner parties, he often asks me to make the appetizer and dessert. Plus, I get into setting the table...having our home slicked up, music on ...but that is another story.
So, here are my five favorite recipes...
This is an easy one with only four ingredients:
Crunchy, salty and sweet.
Tip: I keep a basil plant from Trader Joe's in the kitchen window.
Usually, its cheaper than buying a bunch each week and I also use it on salads and pasta.
I wrote about this a little while ago...with a couple of girl friends and wine
...you could just make dinner out of this platter.
(Note: not acceptable for dinner for most husbands, though :)
Tip: You can mix it up...a grocery list is in the link.
People ask me for this recipe...

For this tasty pizza, just pick up the pre-packaged dough from Trader Joe's

My kids ask me to make this tart. It's rich...cut little slices.
I added fresh raspberries and whipped cream (or vanilla ice cream would be good, too).
Secret Tip: Store the leftovers in an air tight container and have a little wedge with coffee in the morning (no one is judging, right?).
I love a zesty lemon dessert...
See how I made my version here with
Opps...I ended up with six recipes...they are hard to narrow down!
