I love finding good recipes! When you are busy and you finally find the time to go to the grocery store and cook…. it better be good! So over the years, I have collected a few good recipes and I am always on the hunt for new ones. Some of my best recipes come from my family, friends, good old cookbooks, and now the internet just makes it so easy. In my post on How To Host A Book Club, I shared some amazing pictures of my friend Debbie’s fabulous meal. I said I would share her great recipes…so here they are!
First, we have her delicious homemade Caesar Salad Dressing. She found the recipe on the Food Network by Ree Drummond, The Pioneer Woman. For recipe click here. The dressing was so creamy and good. The homemade croutons were really good too. Check it out!
Second, the Bruschetta with Balsamic Vinegar and Olive Oil. Use about 9 Roma (grape) tomatoes seeded and cut in small squares. Add fresh basil cut into slices, add shredded Parmesan cheese, salt and pepper to taste. Serve on a sliced french baguette. Top with a good olive oil and balsamic vinegar. The Williams Sonoma brand is pricey but it is the best I have ever tasted! See link here.
Next, the Main Course, Emeril’s Bayou Chicken Pasta, fabulous! Recipe link here, now Debbie made some modifications to make it vegetarian, like keeping the chicken and shrimp on the side. She patted the shrimp dry and seasoned it with Emeril’s Essence seasonings and grilled them with olive oil in a pan. She did the same thing with the chicken. She also used less Habanero peppers to make sure it was not too spicy for her guests. I made the pasta the other night for a little dinner party and just followed the recipe, it was delicious!
Finally, for dessert, no bake cheesecake! The recipe was modified from Martha Stewart’s Cheesecake. Recipe, here. Debbie adjusted the recipe by using 1 and 1/2 cans of sweeten condensed milk instead of just one can. She put 2 teaspoons of vanilla extract instead of just one and 3/4 cups of fresh lemon juice instead of 1/4. It was so good and easy to make! Don’t be scared! I tried making it and it came out really good!
