Based on the BLT, this hearty Charred BLT Salad starts with Romaine; then strips of prosciutto, crunchy bread cubes, and cherry tomatoes are scattered on top--finishing with blue cheese that begins to melt when it hits the warm lettuce.
From its dramatic straight sides to its bourbon-spiked caramel and crunchy pepita toppings, this gorgeous tart makes plain pumpkin pie pale in comparison. The recipe’s length may make it look daunting, but its various elements can be made in stages.
A Northern Italian specialty, these thick, crunchy-edged crêpes are easy to prepare and can be served at room temperature (but are even better warm). Belcampo's CEO, Anya Fernald, topped them with the ranch's own mortadella and roasted red peppers to serve as appetizers.
This rich, creamy side with its crunchy topping would make a wonderful dish to take to summer potlucks and picnics, or to pair up with a wide variety of entrees. You'll love the buttery flavor of these "comfort veggies!" —Jennifer Wallace, Canal Winchester, Ohio
Livened up with a zingy horseradish and dill cream cheese, these simple yet fancy cucumber and salmon bites are crunchy, creamy finger food food perfection! Last night we hosted the last dinner party we’ll probably ever have in our current apartment. We’re moving days after we return from Italy – but we’ll still be Brooklyn …
Phyllo-Wrapped Asparagus with Prosciutto is an appetizer worthy of a special occasion. Simply roll up prosciutto and asparagus in phyllo dough and bake. The results are a crunchy, easy appetizer all will enjoy. You can also chop the prosciutto and sprinkle it on the phyllo.
I checked and while I found many bran muffin recipes here, none were quite like this. I like this one not only because it is lower fat, but because it doesn't have as much added sugar, and it relies on the cereal more than the flour to make the batter. The muffins themselves are surprisingly moist and light in texture. I like the light sweetness of these and the crunchy muffin tops. (If you sprinkle a little extra cereal on top, they get an even better crunch, and improved appearance.) I found this recipe at www.mealsmatter.org. Watch these since the recipe stated they should bake in 20 minutes, but I found mine were done after about 15.
I played around with my family's No Bake Cookie recipe and produced a single portion of this cookie that I feel is healthy enough to eat as a meal. They're still very good but are much healthier. I keep getting asked for the recipe, so I finally decided to measure out the exact portions and post the recipe. THIS RECIPE IS VERY FLEXIBLE! When I make them I NEVER measure out anything and I often add more or less of ingredients and they still taste great. I sometimes leave out the wheat germ and flax seeds and just add more oatmeal. I have made these replacing the sugar with about 3 tablespoons of honey. I have changed the recipe from 1 tsp. to 1 Tbsp. of cocoa powder.
