Easy Mushroom Spread

Rating: 4.5 stars 7
If you are like me, you buy mushrooms with the greatest of intentions, but unfortunately, they sit in the fridge and get really...weird. This recipe is simple. I made it up, being determined not to let my mushrooms get... weird. The best part is that it worked, and tastes great. Keeps well in the fridge up to 3 days.

Chinese Fried Walnuts

I am always asked to bring these walnuts whenever we have a get together with family or friends. They are perfect on tables at a bridal or baby shower, and no one can ever figure out how they are made. Very addicting!

Kickin Stuffed Peppers

Rating: 4.5 stars 73
Tired of boring stuffed green peppers? Try these baked jalapenos with a delicious cream cheese filling full of flavor! They are great as an appetizer or side.

Simply Guacamole

Rating: 4.5 stars 72
This is so easy and so good. It's always the hit of the party and it's gone before anything else on the table.

Persian Cucumber Yogurt (Maast-o Khiar)

Rating: 4.5 stars 56
This cool and healthy dip can be served along side rice and meat, or simply with bread. No Persian meal is complete without Maast-o khiar! This dish is best if refrigerated for a few hours, but if you are strapped for time feel free to serve after mixing. Don't be afraid to get creative! Try adding spinach, raisins, or walnuts. Other herbs could be used as well (i.e. mint, tarragon, oregano). More cucumbers, less's your call! Enjoy!

These are a low calorie nutritious snack. Like potato chips, you cannot stop at just eating one. They are great for parties and a good conversation topic.

Appetizer Mussels

Rating: 5 stars 121
What timing! Although I have eaten mussels many times, October 17 was the very first time I cooked them, and (if I do say so myself!) they were great. A friend and I ate every last one, and he raved about the flavor the whole time. This is my own recipe.
