sushi rolls, california rollsCalifornia Rolls - American-Style Sushi Rolls
Making sushi at home is easy to do. Ingredients and equipment can be found at Japanese and Asian foods stores as well as at most large food or grocery stores. I did a large amount of reading on how to make sushi rolls before attempting my first ones. Sushi making does requires a small amount of initial practice. Don't be afraid to try!


Chevre WrapChevre Wrap
This recipe is courtesy of Jane Butel. Janes says, "I created this dish for a light luncheon, while consulting for Conrad’s restaurant, named for Conrad Hilton, the former owner of the historic landmark hotel where our cooking school was located. To display them attractively, I make every other cut on an angle and then arrange the longer angular side of each cut toward the outside and arrange them in fours, making them look like flowers, especially when centering each “flower” with a piece of tomato."


Dolmades (Stuffed Grape Leaves)
Often served as part of a meze (appetizer) plate. Too often they come from a can and are not fresh. Homemade are far superior to the canned. If you have never tried fresh dolmades, now is the time. They are very easy to make and so delicious!


Stuffed Grape Leaves with Gorgonzola and Olives
These wonderful appetizers are great to serve with wine and cheese! 

Grilled Figs with Goat Cheese and Honey
If you love figs, goat cheese and honey, then you'll pop these onto your grill immediately.

Hawaiian Spam MusubiHawaiian Spam Musubi
A favorite Hawaiian way to eat Spam is in the form of a musubi (pronounced moo-soo-bee, with no accent). It is a fried slice of spam on rice pressed together to form a small block, then wrapped with a strip of seaweed. The Spam musubi is eaten as a sandwich or a snack, and it is perhaps the Island's favorite "to go" or snack food. Spam musubi is literally everywhere in Hawaii, including local convenience stores, grocery stores, school cafeterias, and even at the zoo. Eating a Spam musubi seems to serve as a rite of passage for newcomers anxious to attain "local" status.

onion sandwiches
James Beard's Onion Sandwiches

James Beard refers to these sandwiches in his book Beard on Food. I first tasted these wonderful onion sandwiches at a wine tasting. They are fantastic!Excellent with wine! This is quite possibly the perfect reward, along with a glass of wine, for yourself and your guests.


Thai Lettuce Wraps with CilantroLettuce Wraps or Lettuce Tacos
This is also a great way to lower your consumption of carbohydrates by replacing the bread with lettuce. Lettuce wraps are very easy to create with an almost endless array of ingredient variations. You can also use the same ingredients that you use in burritos, tortillas, pita bread, or spring rolls. Jut let your imagination and taste buds be your guide.

The recipe is from the April 2003 Bon Appetit Magazine. The perfect appetizer with Champagne.

Salmon Spring RollsSalmon Spring Rolls
A very easy Spring Roll to serve to your family and friends.

How about a Spring Roll or Summer Roll? It's a cool, easy, and an efficient process that yields a delectable prize. Did you know that Spring/Summer Rolls are Egg Rolls that are not fried? Because they are not fried, they are very low in fat and calories! Not only are these Rolls tasty, but they are also healthy. These are good as a starter or a main course.
