Today's word is: Naughtyornice
as in....which one are you? (click on the link to find out!)
Yes, it's another Tastey Tuesday recipe exchange day!
And, I'm beginning to wonder about you all!
99% of you are not sharing recipes!!
Maybe you are all hording your secret recipes and keeping them for yourself?
That's a little naughty, don't you think?
Well, I need all the nice points I can get.......so here's a few recipes for you!
In honor of your naughty behavior, all of my recipes today are of the naughty variety.
I'm not sure if I've ever shared this first recipe with you. Shame on me if I didn't. I discovered this last year at a holiday/football party. By "discovered", I mean that the hostess put in right in front of me and since I'd rather chat and eat that watch an entire football game and I couldn't walk over to the buffet table without risking my life by walking in front of the huge screen TV--I proceeded to eat most of it and declared it one of my all time favorite meals! It's very easy, very yummy and yes, it's naughty!
Hot Onion Dip
- 3 (8 ounce) packages cream cheese, softened
- 1 onion, finely chopped
- 2 cups grated Parmesan cheese
- 1/2 cup mayonnaise
- Preheat oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C). Lightly grease a medium baking dish.
- In the prepared dish, mix the cream cheese, onion, Parmesan cheese and mayonnaise.
- Bake in the preheated oven 30 minutes, or until bubbly and lightly browned.
Oh...and here's a Paula Deen recipe that is so easy and so delish, it's amazing I'm not making it every night....I love, love, love it so much. It's so naughty that I actually feel the need to go to Confession after I eat it....
- Crushed candy canes, to yield 1 cup
- 2 pounds white chocolate
- Peppermint flavorings, optional
Place candy canes in a plastic bag and hammer into 1/4-inch chunks or smaller. Melt the chocolate in a double boiler. Combine candy cane chunks with chocolate (add peppermint flavoring at this point if desired.) Pour mixture onto a cookie sheet layered with parchment or waxed paper and place in the refrigerator for 45 minutes or until firm. Remove from cookie sheet and break into pieces (like peanut brittle.)
And, this last naughty little concoction is something that reminds me of my mother. And, I love to be reminded of my mother! Although her favorite drink was a highball (made with gin), she loved to entertain with whiskey sours. When she bought some maraschino cherries and got out her bottle of whiskey, we knew she was having a party (or hosting her Friday night sewing club....)
Frozen Whiskey Sours
(note--this is my mother's recipe....she didn't add water to the concentrated juices--that's what makes it a wee bit more naughty. But, if think you will have more than one and you need to get up the next day to shop or cook or go to work or just breathe, you might want to some add water....)
- 6 ounces frozen lemonade concentrate
- 6 ounces frozen orange juice concentrate
- 8 ounces good whiskey
- 8 maraschino cherries , in juice
- 1/4 cup fine sugar
Garnish with cherry and optional orange slice
For those of you who are looking for extra nice points.....be sure to share your recipe in the comment section!!!
