Re:Cranberry Citrus Compote

I have made this recipe every Thanksgiving since 2009. It is not too sweet and has some tartness to it. It is so simple yet delicious. You cannot go wrong with this recipe.

Re:Rustic Beefsteak Tomato Tart

Love this-- I always make this for parties and always a hit. I have started experimenting with this recipe to make the crust "healthier". OMG the crust is amazing-- but if you or your family are watching their weight well there is a lot of butter in the crust. By the way did I say how amazing the crust is with the butter. Yummy. So to reduce the calories-- I substituted all purpose flour with whole wheat pastry flour and eliminated the butter. Instead I used 1/4 cup extra virgin olive oil and 1/2 cup cold water-- I didn't need a food processor, i just mixed the dry ingredients first in a large bowl, then added oil and water and mixed in until the dough form using a wooden spoon. I refrigerated the dough as the recipe indicates but then I rolled it our and put it in a prepared tart pan and cooked the crust for 10 minutes at 400 degrees F. I let the crust cool. Then I filled the tart and cooked it as it indicated in recipe.

Re:Caramelized Onion & Thyme Tarts

Loved it! I changed it up just a little to use up stuff I needed to from the frig. I used 2 leeks, 1 medium red onion and 1 medium yellow onion instead of 3 yellow onions. I also added a lit bit of fennel seed with the thyme-- it was excellent--

Re:Tomato Salad with Feta, Olives & Mint

OMG this was an amazing recipe. I like to use ripe heirloom tomatoes. You can also add whatever cheeses and fresh herbs you have on hand to mix it up--- It was amazing-- this is a favorite at our home

Re:Bruschetta with Grilled Eggplant & Vidalia Onion

I made this at one of my parties and frankly it was too heavy as an appetizer. My friends tend to eat lighter and healthier.

Re:Baked Ziti with Tomato, Mozzarella & Sausage

This is a basic baked Ziti- However I must let you know that I am from Naples, Itlay and we would NEVER put both garlic and onion in our tomato sauce. We would only use garlic OR onion in the sauce, which is why I gave this recipe only 4 stars
