Green Bean "Almondine" with Garlic and Blue Cheese

Reviewed: Dec. 26, 2013
Made this last night for a dinner party for 12 but I adjusted the serving size to 8 because I added some sauteed yellow onion and mushrooms. I blanched the green beans for ONLY 2 minutes as I love a crisp bite to my beans and you will be putting them in the oven at 400 again so they get cooked again there. They came out PERFECT ! A very nice SNAP left in the bean when it came out of the oven and it they even sat for 1/2hr before we ate and STILL had that CRUNCH! Added a bit more Blue cheese because I put a layer of the bean mixture in the dish then layered some of the cheese on then added all the rest of the bean mixture that way when you got to the middle of the beans there would still be blue cheese. Did everything else all the same. Got complements and there were none left in my dish!! Need I say more!!

Figs and Toasted Almonds Brie

Reviewed: Sep. 28, 2011
Just now made this. Fabulous!! I used half the sugar, may even cut it some more next time. I want to really taste the figs. Everything else was the same amounts. I also used goat cheese the sharp taste of the goat cheese with the sweet, WOW !! Also used pecans that I toasted. Spread the cheese and topped with the fig mixture on a multi-grain and rice cracker. TO DIE FOR!!

Brie Cheese Appetizer

Reviewed: Jul. 22, 2010
I just had a few friends for wine and cheese tonight. They were in Awe of this recipe. They could not believe that Martha Stewart herself had not personal dropped this off. I had put the brie in the Freezer for 30 min. Then It sliced in half perfectly. Made it with jalapeno jelly, then on top of the jellyI put dried cranberries rehydrated first and sliced roasted almonds. Tnen used Phyllo dough to wrap it. I first layed the brie on top of 3 sheets of phyllo dough and wrapped the dough up the sides then layed 3 more sheets on top and wrapped the dough down the sides so that the whole brie was now all covered up.I did the egg wash over the whole thing then topped with more of the cranberries and almonds. Baked it at 350 for 30 min. it got a beautiful golden brown. It held its shape beautiful. The phyllo dough turned out very buttery and flaky. I used a large brie round 19.6 oz. Not much was left, but what was left, my guests wanted to take home. I will ABSOLUTELY make this again !!

Cranberry Pistachio Biscotti

Reviewed: Mar. 8, 2010
GREAT RECIPE !! I also added orange zest. Next time just to keep the cost down and to have enough Pistachio's for another batch I will use only 1 cup of nuts. This was fabulous !!
