Here's my contribution:

Dill Chicken Appetizers
Ingredients:

2 cups cooked chicken breast, diced
2 cups sharp cheddar cheese, shredded
2 cups mayonnaise
1 red sweet bell pepper, diced
2 garlic cloves, minced
5 Tbsp. dill seed or dill powder
2 cups fresh broccoli, diced
1 tsp. salt
1 tsp. pepper
3 cans of large crescent rolls dough

Directions:

Preheat the oven to 375 degrees.

Gently mix together the chicken, cheese, mayonnaise, red pepper, garlic, dill, broccoli, and salt and pepper.

Take the crescent roll dough out of the packages and place a spoonful of the mixture in the center of each individual piece of dough. Fold the corners up into the middle and crimp to seal. If you wish, you can brush the outside with a beaten egg and sprinkle with more dill.

Place on a cooking sheet and bake in the oven for approximately 12 minutes or until golden brown. Remove from the oven and allow to sit for 10 minutes before serving. The filling will be hot!

Famous Deviled Eggs

8 hard-cooked eggs  
1/2 cup Miracle Whip
1 tbsp parsley
2 Tbsp. sweet pickle relish  
2 tsp. mustard  
1/4 tsp. salt  
Dash pepper  
Paprika

Preparation
Cut eggs in half lengthwise. Remove yolks; mash in small bowl. Stir in salad dressing, relish, mustard and seasonings.

Spoon or pipe salad dressing mixture into centers of egg whites, sprinkle Paprika liberally; cover. Serve immediately or refrigerate until ready to serve.

These eggs are plenty powerful!      If you can, use the Hungarian type of Paprika, you should be able to find it in most stores. . .it makes these eggs just sing. . .

Er...chocolate...

Instructions:

1.Go to supermarket...avoid crazy drivers who try to run you over...

2.Find confectionary aisle...knock any little kids who are trying to get your chocolate out of the way.

3.Grab handfuls (take extra care with this step..it's a crucial element).

4.Take it all home. Eat. Think - oh hell, that was for the party.

5.Repeat Steps 1 through to 4, but only eat half.

6.Take the rest to the party.

7.Huddle in a corner with a giant fly swat to keep other guests away and consume.

I am a refugee of logic...insisting
on unlikely land with every step.

I've got the Spinach Dip  

Spinach Dip Recipe


1 loaf Colombo Sour French bread (round)
2 blocks frozen spinach drained of as much water as possible
16-18 oz. Sour cream
1 Lipton’s Golden Onion Soup mix

Cut top off the bread, set aside. Cut out middle of bread, leaving a “bread bowl”. Cut middle of bread into chunks and place in separate bowl. Next open spinach, drain all excess water off. Place in large mixing bowl. Then add sour cream to spinach. Next, mix in powdered soup mix.
After you have mixed the ingredients together, place into the bread bowl. Cover with top of bread and serve.

hee hee....I hate spinach, so here is a favorite....


Salsa Recipe


1 can whole peeled tomatoes (28oz.)
1 bunch cilantro
½ purple onion- diced
1-2 jalapenios
3 tablespoons Mexican seasoning
1 teaspoon Italian seasoning
2 tablespoons garlic powder

First, this salsa is to be done to taste. If you like it hotter, add more onion, garlic or jalapenio peppers. If you do not like it hot, then omit the peppers.
You will need a blender for this recipe. Open can of tomatoes and put into the blender. Chop cilantro into small sections. Dice the purple onion into small chunks.
Place into blender.(peppers should be boiled until soft- about 5-7 minutes of actual boiling time) Core the peppers and remove the seeds. Cut into small chunks and put in blender. Add Mexican seasoning. Add Italian seasoning, being careful to add exact amount. Add  garlic powder. Blend until it looks slightly chunky. You don’t want it too runny. Pour into serving bowl.

*Recommend Margarita’s and tortilla chips to go with

Okay...I will share an actual recipe here...

Crabmeat Dip

1 1/2 lbs. of crab meat.
1 lb. mozzarella cheese (shredded)
1 lb. of diced seasonings consisting of green onion, garlic, celery
a splash or so of wine
oh...and you'll need flour and heavy whipping cream...and butter!

Not a precise recipe, but whaddidja expect from me?
First...cook your seasoning mixture down to "transparency" in butter and the splash or so of wine.

Then, in a SEPARATE roomy saucepan? Melt even more butter...heh heh...and? another splash or so of wine, simmering without burning please (careful butter heats quickly!) adding the flour by the tablespoon to make what my grandmaw called a "white roux"--if it looks like a big pasty mess? You are doing it right! Add your heavy cream, slowly, while stirring, stirring, and stirring, also thinning it out with still more splashes of the wine, (If you've saved any to cook with at this point.) Add your seasonings and then? Just when you have the consistency of a white sauce? Add the cheese and melt slowly...and then of course? the crabmeat.

Now I know I forgot about the Tabasco...but quite often? the crab meat is spicy enough.
Do not add salt please. Crabmeat is salty enough, thank you much. This should be served HOT, of course, and I find Melba toast a perfect complement as this is a VERY RICH dip. And depending on the season? Diced crawfish tails or shrimp can also add interest. The only real problem with this recipe? Is that you will be asked to make it AGAIN AND AGAIN.

Hmmm...Party at MY HOUSE?

Is this a black-tie event?  If so, it won't be complete without a little Steak Diane ...

4 8-oz beef tenderloin filets (or you can use sirloin instead and beat the hell out of it)

4 Tsp. dijon mustard

Fresh (coarsely) ground pepper to taste

1/2 cup button mushrooms, sliced

1 cup au jus gravy

1/2 cup white onions, chopped

2 Tbs olive oil

1/4 cup brandy

1 tsp cornstarch mixed in 1/4 cup warm water (for thickening)

Fireplace match or chef's lighter for flambe'


Heat oil over medium high heat until water droplets dance when sprinkled.  Add onions, sauteeing until just tender.  Coat one side of each tenderloin thoroughly with mustard, then grind fresh pepper over all to taste.  Place filets, mustard side down, in the pan to sear (be careful not to let them stick!).  While searing, mustard and pepper the top side of each filet.  Cook about 3 minutes on a side for medium rare, adding the mushrooms when you flip the filets, adjusting time more or less to taste.  Check temperature by pressing on the filet with the flat side of a fork; the firmer the meat, the closer to well done it is (sorry folks, this is not an exact science).    

During the last 2 minutes of cooking, pour the au jus sauce over and around the filets.  When the sauce comes to a boil, add the brandy and quickly flambe' (set fire to the brandy), being careful NOT to have your face over the pan because the flame will be sudden and large and does not generally go well with hair and skin.  The fire will extinguish itself when the alcohol is all burned off ... this is why it is not a good idea to use the "more is better" approach when adding the brandy LOL.

When the fire goes out, move filets and vegetables to one side of the skillet and tilt pan to collect liquid on the opposite side.  Stir cornstarch mixture to assure even consistency, then slowly add it to the pan juices, stirring constantly, until the liquid has attained the consistency of a glaze (should be thickened but not cloudy).  Serve immediately -- goes well with whipped potatoes and steamed vegetables, not to mention a good merlot.      Makes 4 to-die-for servings.


I trust you all not to get yourselves in trouble with the flammable element of this recipe!

I've copied some of ur recipes!^_^ I like this idea!
Can I bring carrot and feta mini quiches?  

500g / 1 lb prepared puff pastry
(filling)
4 rashers of bacon, finely chopped
4 spring onions, chopped
2 carrots, grated
125g / 4 oz feta cheese, crumbled
3 eggs
250ml / 8 fl oz milk
125g / 4 oz grated tasty cheese (or any cheese really)
black pepper.. (I leave this out 'coz I don't like pepper.. =P)

* To make filling, cook bacon and spring onions in a pan over medium heat for.. about 4 minutes.. just until it's done. Add the carrots, cook stirring for a couple of minutes more, and remove frome heat. Let it cool.

* Put the feta, eggs, milk, tasty cheese and pepper in a bowl and mix.. Stir in the carrot and bacon stuff from your pan, and let it sit while u do the pastry.

* Roll out the pastry and cut 24 rounds using a 6am / 2 and a half inch biscuit cutter. Place the rounds in an oiled muffin tin, or patty cases, whatever.. Now you're meant to put the filling in here, but it works better if u prik the pasrty and let it puff int he oven first, so it doesn't go soggy..   Put your filling in then, and bake them at 180 C (350 F) for about 15, 20 minutes..

* eat.

* say 'yum'

*bake them for your friends.

*

Mmm, yummy party ppl! 'specially Javi's contribution.. I mean.. um..

Tarheel Tea

1 Part Vodka
1 Part Rum (bacardi 151 instead of the weak stuff that is in Long Island Tea)
1 Part Tequila
1 Part Triple Sec
1 Part Everclear ( in the place of the Gin that is found in Long Island Tea
1/2 Part Sour Mix
Splash of Coke

Mix ingredients together over ice in glass. Pour into shaker and give ONE brisk shake. Pour back into glass and make sure there is a touch of fizz at the top.
Garnish with lemon.

...and of course DO NOT ATTEMPT TO DRIVE (or even walk very far)

There is society where none intrudes, by the deep sea, and music in its roar.

I guess it's like Long Island and ice tea.  It doesn't contain tea, but tastes like tea.

Anyone who thinks Long Island Iced Tea (or any of its variants) tastes ANYTHING like tea is either a mental case or a severe alcoholic.  YUCK!  The only reason why someone drinks an LIT is to get smashed ... period.  TRUST me on this one -- I have a little experience in this department!  

OK, I have a request ... who is going to post the dessert recipes?  Something chilly, for summer, you know ...

BANANA SPLIT DESSERT

INGREDIENTS:

2 cups Graham Cracker Crumbs
2 1/3 cups Confectioner's Sugar
8-oz. package Cream Cheese, softened
15-oz. can Crushed Pineapple
1 cup Prepared Whipped Cream
3-6 Bananas, sliced
1 package Instant Chocolate Pudding
1 1/2 cup Milk
Additional Whipped Cream for Topping
Maraschino Cherries and Chopped Nuts or your choice of garnish

DIRECTIONS: To prepare the first layer of your banana split dessert, melt butter in a 9-inch by 13-inch glass baking dish. Stir in graham cracker crumbs and press with a fork to make crust. Bake for about 5 minutes in a pre-heated 200-F degree oven. Set aside to cool.

Just prior to serving, top with additional whipped cream, and sprinkle with nuts and maraschino cherries. Refrigerate to store
Yield: 12 Servings
