Recipe News: Tailgate-tailored menu, chicken wrap recipe

"Tailgate parties can range from the simple to simply fabulous. Atlanta-based Affairs to Remember caters tailgate parties and offered us a healthy recipe from its menu.

Whether you prepare your own foods or have the party catered, don't throw good health out the window while you tailgate. Both the foods you eat and the way you handle foods can go a long way toward keeping you healthy.

Here is a suggested menu :

• Baked tortilla chips or blue organic tortilla chips with pico de gallo

• Tailgate Tortilla Chicken Wraps With Pineapple Serrano Chile Salsa (see recipe, which serves 8, below)

• Grilled fruit skewers (thread pineapple, strawberries and melon balls on a skewer and grill for a few minutes). If that isn't sweet enough, thread a marshmallow between the fruit.

• Favorite beverages, but don't forget to include some nonalcoholic beverages in your cooler for the designated driver."

Recipe News: Chipping in: Chocolate livens many recipes

"Back in the 1930s, a woman named Ruth Wakefield decided to put small bits of a semi-sweet chocolate bar in her cookies with the idea that they would melt. Sad to say, the chocolate didn’t melt, but the cookie became so popular that Nestlé put her recipe on the back wrapper of their semi-sweet chocolate bar.

Ruth got a lifetime’s supply of chocolate. Not a bad deal for them – or us.

Enter present day. With me as a great aunt (I know, I’m much too young to be a great aunt) and my fabulous niece, Laura (who is an amazing cook in her own right), as a mommy, my brilliant two great-nephews (Ray and Josh) are definitely food savvy. Last week while Laura was making bread and explaining why she was putting raisins in the bread, the children posed the following scenario: “Mommy, we put raisins in the bread to make it sweet, right? Well, if raisins make it sweet, wouldn’t chocolate chips make it even sweeter? And why can’t you put chocolate chips in bread, too?"

includes recipes for:


  • Chocolate chocolate chip muffins

  • Chocolate chip cream cheese ball

  • Coca-Cola chocolate chip sheet cake

  • Caramelized chocolate, banana and marshmallow sandwiches

  • Chocolate chip dessert lasagna

Recipe News: Top Recipe 2005: Strawberry-Almond Shortcakes

"A generous helping of ripe strawberries and a billowy cloud of softly whipped cream fill these homemade shortcakes, which are easily made in a food processor and have a drop-biscuit consistency. A crunchy textural contrast comes from toasted sliced almonds and sugar crystals that bake on top of the cakes. The shortcakes may be served at room temperature, but we liked the contrast of warm cakes and cold whipped cream. Also, warm cakes soak up more of the luscious strawberry juices. From Olivia Wu, who joined the Food staff in 2002."

Recipe News: Top Recipe 1992: Double Corn Spoon Bread with Green Chiles

"The contrasting tastes and textures of cornmeal and fresh corn kernels enrich this simple dish from Georgeanne Brennan. Tasters really liked the charred fresh chiles and the light, souffle-like texture. Serve this anytime -- even for a light supper with a green salad and French bread. Brennan started writing for the Food section in 1982. She is author of "Potager," "The Glass Pantry" and "The Food and Flavors of Haute Provence," among others."

Recipe News: A colorful cupcake collection: 60 marvelous recipes for any occasion

"The cupcake is a classic, let's face it. An unsung favorite for eons, in recent years it has hit the culinary pop charts, even the art scene. The sugary little darlings have become big business, but they still retain their cozy place in our hearts.

These days not only do bakeries across the country sell cupcakes, you can go out to eat at a cupcake cafe and choose a ritzy cupcake from the dessert menu of an upscale restaurant. You can order cupcakes online from cupcake boutiques, there are plenty of cookbooks focusing only on cupcakes, and you can get married with cupcakes starring at the wedding feast.

Celebrity has spotlighted cupcakes from the Magnolia Bakery in New York City, munched in endless reruns of television's "Sex and the City," and cupcakes from Sprinkles in Beverly Hills, sent by Barbra Streisand as a gift to Oprah Winfrey.

Dede Wilson's newly published "A Baker's Field Guide to Cupcakes" (Harvard Common Press, 2006, $17.95) is as smart and handy as a cupcake itself: a colorful ringbound collection of some 60 recipes for every occasion, each with photo and "field notes" besides loads of other tips."

includes recipes for:


  • Key Lime Macadamia Nut Cupcakes

  • Lavender Pink Grapefruit Cupcakes

  • Honey Roasted Pineapple Cupcakes

  • Crumb Cake Cupcakes

  • Caramel Apple Cupcakes
