Appetizers And Snacks - Water Chestnut Wraparounds

Another item for the Christmas open house or buffet table.

Herbs And Spices - Absolutely Fabulous Greekhouse Dressing

This is the 'secret' Greek dressing recipe from the pizzeria that I work at. The recipe makes almost a gallon but can be scaled down easily. It can be used for picnics and travels very well, since it doesn't need to be refrigerated. This is the best dressing I have ever tasted, people offer to buy it constantly, but if we sold it we wouldn't be able to make enough to use in the restaurant!

Salad - Cornbread Salad I

This is a crowd pleaser and the recipe serves twelve. What a coincidence! This is a layered salad that is fun to make and pretty served in a glass bowl. Lots of cornbread, corn, beans, green peppers, spring onions, and crumbled bacon. All layered with a creamy herbed dressing.

Bread - Best Ever Corn Muffins

This recipe was handed down to me from my mother. It's easy to make and the ingredients are probably already in your kitchen. Enjoy!

Bread - Choereg Armenian Easter Bread

Ok...so my mother would just kill me if she knew I made our family recipe for Choereg public. But my policy is 'why keep a good thing to myself'. Choereg is a traditional, slightly sweet bread, especially made for Easter. It is delicious for breakfast with a nice cup of coffee. It takes some level of skill, but anyone used to handling yeast should not have a problem. You can find Mahleb at Middle Eastern grocery stores, especially around Easter. It will be with the spices. Please do not omit it, as this is what gives it its distinctive flavour and aroma.
