#1. Recipe must have been tested. Not just the "this sounds good I think I'll save it somewhere to make someday recipe"...but ACTUALLY prepared and tested.
#2. Recipe must be considered a "do-over (and over)" by my test kitchen taste testers & guests.
Here is one of those recipes that made it into "the book". I found it at my mom's house several years ago while looking thru a stack of magazines headed for the recycling bin. I think I might have been pondering a holiday menu at the time. Either way, it came from Women's Day Magazine of all places! While I will thumb thru this magazine IF it's around and I'm bored (while waiting for my dentist appointment or something), I doubt I would ever actually purchase a copy at this point in my life. I consider it a magazine for the older set and I'M NOT READY for a membership into that club yet. I'm fighting it to the bitter end.
Not only is this recipe easy, it only requires 4 ingredients. Yep, only FOUR!! Click on the image to read the recipe...if you can read my writing! One thing to note: Blot the oil off of the sundried tomatoes before chopping them up. Neither of these points are noted in my book.
By the way, when I am asked to bring something to a party, THIS IS ALWAYS what is requested (see requirements #2 above). Give it a shot for your next holiday or get-together, you won't regret it. Well, maybe you will, because you'll be making them for every function from here to eternity going forward! Promise.
