A list of all the recipes Terri Rimmer has tested.
Sea Salt-Rosemary Sweet Potato Chips
Unlike humdrum store-bought chips, these have some semblance of sophistication, not to mention healthfulness. And yes, it’s still hard to stop at just one.
It may be a tad boring looking from the outside, but wait ’til you see what this eggplant timbale is filled with on the inside.
Spanish Pizza with Chorizo and Peppers
A United Nations of flavor adorn this Spanish pizza with chorizo and Manchego mingling with mozzarella and poblano chiles.
Individual Peach Soufflés
Properly airy and messily delicious, these peach souffles are an elegant (yet easy) ending to any summer supper. Or heck, perhaps just have these for supper.
Falafel with Tahini Sauce
Accustomed to getting falafel takeout from your fave Middle Eastern food truck or restaurant? No more. You can make the best falafel you’ve ever experienced at home.
Fregola Salad with Citrus and Red Onion
Fregola is a toasted semolina pasta with a nutty flavor that’s very popular in Sardinia. This salad includes orange, grapefruit, onion, and herbs.
Red Pepper Cheesecake
This savory cheesecake is much, much more than just another cheese course. It’s a darn near soul-satiating beginning or ending to your next dinner party.
No mere cocktail and not just dessert, this margarita granita falls somewhere blissfully, intoxicatingly in between. Yet is still as satisfying as if you’d had both.
Date Muffins with Streusel Topping
A rich, sticky, toffee-pudding-inspired muffin topped with streusel. Mmmmmm.
Braised Lamb Shanks in Pinot Noir
Lamb shanks are left to slowly burble in a lovely red wine until the meat is literally falling-off-the-bone tender. Our favorite winter pastime.
Quinoa Salad with Pistachios and Cranberries
The nutty beigeness of quinoa creates a blank canvas for pistachios and cranberries to do their spirited dance in this holiday side. (Did we mention that it’s both vegan and gluten-free?)
Roquefort and Walnut Shortbreads
These Roquefort walnut shortbreads are an elegant appetizer. The shortbreads can also serve as cocktail nibbles. Use a quality Roquefort for best results.
Chicken Avocado Cranberry Salad
Creamy and subtle and delicate and nuanced. That’s what people are saying about this lovely light lunch recipe.
Frozen Lemon Meringue Pie
This is a cool spin on the classic lemon pie. A sorbet-ice cream filling stands in for the usual custard and the whole pie gets popped in the freezer.
Curried Chicken Salad in Radicchio Cups
Shredded curried chicken is spooned into radicchio cups for a sweet-hot bite of chicken deliciousness. Serves these chicken cups as a party nibble.
