Sausage-Style Rolls with Tomato Dipping Sauce


So I volunteered to be one of the hosts (hostesses?) for a progressive dinner for charity.   A progressive dinner is where the appetizers, main and dessert courses are each served at different homes.  I'm doing the appetizers.  Since this fundraiser brings out major contributors, you don't just heat up store-bought frozen puffs and pass around a bottle of ketchup. These people deserve major bang for their donation bucks.  So I've been testing a few recipes that catch my eye here and there.  Such as these from-scratch sausage rolls, served with from-scratch tomato dipping sauce.

Broiled Branzini with lemon and Rosemary


Who knew elegant could be so gosh-darn easy .... with a capital E!    A few slices of lemon and a sprig of rosemary really dresses up a dish, while flavorizing it like no one's biz.

Improve Cooking Challenge, hosted by Nicole from Cookaholic Wife, is where members are given a pair of ingredients and challenged to post a recipe around them.  This month's challenge is to use lemon and rosemary.  To me this really was no challenge, since this easy recipe is a family fave, and very lucky since I never got around to posting.

Until now.

Apple Rose Tart


Ready to impress your friends?  Try this spectacular-looking  tart!

Although technically a pie, I stubbornly refuse to call it anything but a tart.  Yes, I know that this is really made in a standard sloping-sided pie tin, as opposed to a straight-sided removable bottom tart tin.  However,  "tart" is more descriptive, as well as shorter than the more accurate "open-face pie."  So be it.

Italian Apple Cake


Need a last-minute dessert idea for Thanksgiving?  How about a company-worthy cake that is easy to make, yet looks like you snuck a pastry chef into your kitchen.  A cake that's dairy free and egg-free, yet still tastes buttery-tasting rich.  AND ... you don't have to haul out the electric mixer!  How in the world is that even possible?
