A list of all the recipes Carol S. has tested.
Roasted Onions Stuffed with Ground Lamb and Apricots
Moody and a little brooding, this autumnal-ish dish melds earthy spices, sweet apricots, fresh herbs, and lamb to a simply elegant effect.
Frozen Chocolate-Covered Bananas
We’re not sure what The King would say about this frozen riff on his fave sandwich. But with all due respect, does it really matter? Banana, chocolate, peanuts, and bacon!
Lamb Burger ~ Bifteki Arniou
Definitely a nonconformist, this beauty of a burger melds lamb, pork, grilled onion, mustard, parsley, dill, fennel, cumin, lemon, and scallion. We dare you.
Sweet Potato Wedges
These subtly spiced, lightly crisped sweet potato wedges will have everyone clamoring for more–and, we dare say, no one guessing they’re healthful.
Burrata Cheese with Asparagus
A ridiculously rich, unthinkably creamy kin to mozzarella, burrata brings understated bling to every little thing. Prepare to swoon.
This Southern classic is an oh so sweet and charming stack of pineapple, coconut, bananas, and pecans slathered with cream cheese frosting.
Baked Spinach Mornay
Sorta like potato gratin, except the nutty, cheesy white sauce swaddles leaves of spinach, not sliced spuds. Sure beats salad.
