    Artichoke-Olive Crostini(from Smitten Kitchen - Adapted from Mario Batali) The first time I made this, I had to use the Magic Bullet because I don't have a food processor and it basically turned into a puree. But still pretty good! It forced me to buy capers for the first time. Now I just have to figure out what to do with the rest of the jar since I only used a tablespoon. I'm eating some leftovers right now! In addition for making great crostini, we tossed some of the leftover paste with pasta for dinner that next night and it was delicious. I think it would be especially good in a cold pasta dish, like a salad. posted by Bethie

    1 garlic clove, peeled and smashed1 cup large green pitted olives1 tablespoon capers, rinsed and drained1 15-ounce can of artichoke hearts, drained1/4 cup extra-virgin olive oil8 large slices of crusty bread

    Preheat the oven to 400F. In a food processor, process the garlic, olives, capers,artichoke hearts and olive oil to a coarse paste.

    Toast the bread on the oven rack for 6 minutes, or until crisp and browned. Spread theolive paste thickly over the toasts and serve.

    Do ahead: The olive paste can be refrigerated for 2 days. Let it return to roomtemperature before using.

    Dilly Beans(from Mom)

    Arrange the following in layers in crock or large bowl:

    Whole green beans, cleaned (or pickling cucumbers quartered or sliced)5-10 cloves garlic, quartered1-2 shakes red pepper flakes per layerFresh dill (or dill leaves and seed heads)

    Boil:2 quarts water1 c. distilled white vinegar4 Tbsp. canning salt (or Kosher salt)24 whole allspice

    Pour brine over beans/cucumbers. Add water if necessary to cover vegetables. Coverand let sit 1-2 days on counter . (I had them in a crock. I had an ice bream pail cover over the pickles and a covered container with water in it to weight it down and keep the pickles under the liquid. I covered the crock with a dish towel. Mom)

    On the 2 nd day, pack in jars and refrigerate . I washed and sterilized odd jars since these pickles do not get sealed. These are like a CLAUSSEN pickle product, but are not canned or processed to seal. Mom

    Florentine Chicken Ring

    Hey cooking fans, Dad was talking about ways to use up all the canned chicken in the basement, so I passed this recipe on to him. I like to make it when company comes over for lunch! It makes a delicious appetizer but is way too rich for a main dish. posted by Laura

    Preheat oven to 375 .Add all the ingredients but the crescent rolls and mix well.

    Unroll crescent dough; separate into 16 triangles. Arrange triangles in a circle on around baking stone with the wide ends of triangles overlapping in the center and pointstoward the outside (there should be a 5 inch diameter opening in center of the stone).

    Scoop chicken mixture evenly onto widest end of each triangle. Bring points of trianglesup over filling and tuck under wide ends of dough at center of ring (filling will not becompletely covered).

    Bake 20-25 minutes or until golden brown. Cut and serve.

    Jalapeno PoppersBlog recipe posted by Laura

    Jalapenos (about 3 inches long work best) Flavored cream cheese (we like either the whipped chive or veggie)

    Bacon (I like the low sodium kind, jalapeno bacon is also delicious, but maybe that is something you can only buy down here?)

    Cut the peppers in half lengthwise. Leave the ends on them. Hollow out the jalapenos,being careful to rinse them well and remove all seeds or they will destroy your mouth.Wash your hands very thoroughly after handling them, or wear gloves.

    Do not, under any circumstances, rub your eye while working with the jalapenos. I found that out the hard way. Ask Stuart about his jalapeno choppin' story sometime. It's pretty funny.

    Fill the pepper halves with cream cheese and reassemble. Wrap with one raw baconslice. Spear with toothpick. Throw on the grill until the bacon looks done and the creamcheese is threatening to escape.
