Pinwheels of some sort would be pretty easy and tasty to bang out.

Dates filled with mascarpone/bacon or pancetta.

Cherry tomatoes stuffed with chicken salad or maybe pimiento cheese?

Stuffed mushrooms

Mini quiches

stuffed jalapenos, or I've seen stuffed jalapeno dip

I'm getting hungry, I better stop!

If I have a tomato on the counter and leave the house, when I come back, it will be half eaten on the floor. My cat (who I've never seen on the counters ever), will have pink stained kitty lips.

I made this recipe last night, very tasty. I've never used capers before, and they were just the acid the dish needed! Yum!

I made the grown up tuna noodle casserole last night and it was TASTY! For some reason, it wasn't salty enough, but that just might be personal taste. Will make again!

My husband has been faithful to Pok Pok since they opened in Portland, and has taken great pride to introduce our friends to the restaurant. He went out and bought this cookbook the day it was released and it is beautiful and interesting. And as a fairly experienced cook, this book is intimidating to cook from! Finding the ingredients will be a fun challenge.

Like many others, my rolls didn't rise much. The dough was not sticky, and I was worried that I lost count of my cups of flour, but I baked them anyway, and they fluffed up quite nicely, and they were a rave. Will make again.

I would add Pok Pok's cookbook to the list. Beautiful book, lovely stories, I'm sure the recipes are delicious, but the intimidation factor is HIGH! I'll just have to make the 2 hour trek to Portland to eat Andy Ricker's delicious food.

Another great one is "Cinder Edna."

Cinder Edna is Cinderella's more practical neighbor who starts her own casserole business and is very independent and strong, while Cinderella is moping about wishing for a prince. It's great!

I'm intrigued by making fermented cider. My brother-in-law makes small batch beer and I am sure if I wont this book, I'd be sharing it with him!

I'm pretty excited to try the lemon icebox cake. I also like plain ol' no-bake cookies (The chocolate oatmeal classic).

For my collection (I had SO MANY MAGAZINES), I went through and cut out all the recipes I thought I MIGHT want to try and put them in plastic sleeves in 3 ring binders. If I try a recipe that's not that great, I just take that page out. This has been working for me, and now I have 3 binders of recipes that I might try. I mostly use them for inspiration and do my own thing, but sometimes that's all you need, right?
