PigPen, I made the eggplant pizza for dinner tonight. Delicious! Adding this one to my recipe box. I'll be making it again soon. Great time of year to make it with all the local produce available now.

Thanks for sharing this one with us.

2 tablespoons half-and-half
1/3 cup coffee-flavored liqueur (we tested with Tia Maria)
1/3 cup chocolate-flavored liqueur (we tested with Godiva)
Preparation
Dip rims of 2 martini glasses in melted chocolate on a plate to form a thin layer. Place glasses in refrigerator until chocolate is firm.

wow its been awhile since i visited!  I had to share this, a relatively simple lentil & rice recipe.  when you do the onions IGNORE THE RECIPE DIRECTIONS LOL.  slice the onions thin as you can put a bunch of good olive oil in a pan let them hang out an hour on low stirring occasionally until as I've said else where -  until they look like chocolate stringy goo.

i carmelized vidalias and you barely knew they were onions.  the recipe reviews indicate some cumin and a very little bit of cinnamon are traditional seasonings (i added garlic too and a teeny tiny pinch of cloves)

a good yogurt apparently critical too.  it was fabulous,  simple good comfort food (and cheap too)

But do drink plenty of water: it's important to keep well hydrated. So I'm told.

:DSorry, Mel  -  wrong weed! That kind would sort of defeat the purpose - but it would definitely be more fun!

Katie - If I were any more hydrated I'd spout like a fountain!   Drink

Hi Lizzy... these  are really good, esp with 5:00PM cocktails.!!!! All kidding aside.. a lovely appetizer before dinner.


http://www.foodandwine.com/recipes/chorizo-filled-dates-wrapped-in-bacon
Chorizo-Filled Dates Wrapped in Bacon

Ingredients
• 1 small Spanish chorizo sausage (about 2 ounces), casing removed
• 24 Medjool dates, pitted
• 12 slices of bacon, halved crosswise

Step 1    
Slice the chorizo crosswise in thirds. Halve each piece lengthwise, then cut each half into 4 lengthwise strips to make a total of 24 small sticks.

Step 2    
Tuck a chorizo stick into each date and pinch the dates closed. Wrap a strip of bacon around each date and secure with a toothpick

Step 3    
Place the wrapped dates in a large skillet, seam sides down, and sauté, turning, until the bacon is browned on all sides, about 10 minutes. Drain on paper towels and serve hot.

PP - Have you actually made this? It sounds really good, but a bit too labor intensive for me. I'm excited because my favorite salad is coming into season:
          Peel and grate a black radish (the most important ingredient)
          Toss with: lots of sliced cucumber/kirbys
                          shredded lettuce
                          chopped scallions
                           some chopped onion
                          canola or vegetable oil (olive oil has too strong a flavor)
                          kosher salt to taste

You can eat it as is or add in whatever you like. I sometimes add zucchini zoodles, hard-boiled eggs, croutons or chicken livers (cold). To be honest, everything about this salad is "to taste", but without the black radish it's just blah!

amaretti - I hope you can find them. They're very different from red radishes and may not be to everyone's taste, but I love them. They're available here from the fall through winter so I'm really excited to see them in my market so early.

If you do find them, be sure they're very hard - not soft or wrinkled. That's a sign they're not fresh and makes them harder to peel. If you wrap the whole radish tightly in plastic wrap it can keep for a week or two in the refrigerator - or you can grate the whole thing and keep it in a container in the refrigerator for a few days to use as you need it.

They should be fairly inexpensive, so if you do decide to try them it won't hurt your wallet! Enjoy! Very Happy

Made often in the Fall.  Not difficult at all- just 3 steps.

Call me when you make the salad... I'll bring the wine and crusty rolls.

I bet they have them at the outdoor markets .  One of my fondest radish memories  is having freshly picked small red radishes with some green stems  on them dipped in sweet butter . Oh my     this was in Provence.      So good .
