Seasons’ Eatings: 2014 Recipe Roundup Year in Review
A look back at recipes of 2014 as we count down to the New Year and the counting of calories begins. . . :)
I’m sharing a round-up of recipes with some highlights from the holidays and seasons~ click on the title for a taste!
A make-ahead recipe to kick off your line up of game day or Super Bowl party snacks!
An easy treat for Valentine’s Day, using a short cut, a brownie mix in a box.
Hearty, comforting and a celebration in a bowl for St. Patrick’s Day.
Sure to please everybunny with the addition of carrot, zucchini, apple and coconut.
A delicious variation of deviled eggs with the veggies adding a little crunch and color!
Whole pears are poached then baked in this impressive cake. The spiced pear poaching liquid/syrup is spooned over the cake to serve and it makes a delicious ingredient for a cocktail!
Easy and beautiful with edible flowers, and adds a ‘wow’ factor for a shower, garden club lunch or treat at the breakfast table!
Full of flavor, colorful, quick & easy to assemble. Muy bueno for summer or Cinco de Mayo!
A patchwork of cucumber, radish, and strawberry topped tea sandwiches garnished with violas and herbs.
A quick and easy dessert to celebrate the Red, White and Blueberry!
The classic Italian Caprese Salad with the addition of a hot bacon dressing.
A pairing of summer peaches and creamy avocado for a delicious complement to fresh and naturally sweet crabmeat.
A celebration of summer fruit in a skillet!
A crowd-pleasing recipe that comes together in 15 minutes and bakes in about 20. The hardest part is waiting for them to cool long enough to cut.
A sweet and savory fall soup served with pie crust leaf “sandwiches” of pecans, cranberries, and cheese!
Cauldron cupcakes with pretzel ‘stirrers’ and twizzler cauldron ‘handles’ for a fun Halloween trick & treat.
An easy technique to dress up your bread basket, from frozen to fancy in 30 minutes!
A fall twist on the Italian classic with some Southern flavor!
Quick & Easy and a Hoot to make!
Festive and party size desserts, easy to assemble and alter with your ingredients, making them as fancy or simple as you like!
