Authentic Greek Tzatziki

Authentic Greek Tzatziki

Serve this, as a refreshing dip, with hunks of artisan whole grain crusty bread and/or bread sticks as a snack or appetizer. The Greeks also serve it with roasted lamb or any kind of grilled meat. I also love to serve this with an assorted vegetable platter & it's even good as a healthy sandwich spread. The uses for this sauce/dip is really limitless!

Serves: 3 to 4

Quick Chili Con Queso

Quick Chili Con Queso

One of my favorite snack recipes, easy to make, so delish & addictive! Double, triple or quadruple the recipe to feed a crowd. If you want to serve it family style & keep it warm on the table, use an electric fondue pot, if you have one & set it to the lowest heat setting.

Serves 3 to 4

Stuffed Mushrooms

Stuffed Mushrooms

I generally make these a couple of times during the holidays, as they're a tasty way to use up leftover poultry & stuffing. They also make a wonderful appetizer for family gatherings or parties.

Serves: 4 to 8

Ranch Dip

Ranch Dip

My favorite restaurant for ordering hot/spicy buffalo wings has the best Ranch Dip I've ever had. They wouldn't share the recipe, so I took some home & after many tries I was able to recreate it and the results tastes exactly like theirs. I mostly serve this dip with wings, along with cut up celery sticks & whole scallions. This also makes a great dip for a cut up fresh vegetable platter.

Yield: 3 - 1/4 cup servings

Gourmet Cheese Fondue

Gourmet Cheese Fondue

This recipe was given to me, in the 1980's, by the famous Melting Pot restaurant. It's the best cheese fondue I've ever had. You can serve this as an appetizer, a snack for a few people or a light meal. It's really easy to make, fun to eat & cleanup is so easy. You're going to love it!

Serves: 2 to 4

Pears with Raspberry Sauce

Pears with Raspberry Sauce

This tastes totally decadent, like something you'd eat in an expensive restaurant, yet it's healthy & easy to make. It makes a wonderful breakfast, anytime snack or healthy dessert.

Serves: 2 to 4

Salsamole Two Ways

Salsamole Two Ways

I'm always looking for new & tasty ways to add more healthy avocado into my diet & this really fits the bill. I've included 2 ways to make this recipe, one easy version from scratch & the second is even easier when you don't want to wait 6 hours for the scratch version.
