hopefully that dessert is chocolate...

I love salted popcorn drizzled with chocolate and left to harden. You break it up and have that wonderful salt sweet combination...ummmmm. It's best with white and dark chocolate.

Have a great time - sounds fun!

I adapted this from a recipe in Martha Stewart's Everyday Cooking for Tandoori chicken burgers.

1 1/2 lbs ground turkey
1 Tbl Paprika
2 tsps Cumin
1/4 tsp cayenne pepper
1 tsp cardamon
2 tsp curry powder
1/2 cup sliced scallions
3 Tbls minced fresh ginger
Juice from one lemon
Salt and pepper to taste

Mix together all ingrediants and shape into small patties (I used a heaping 1/8 cup measuring cup). Grill approx 2 minutes per side.

I served them with yogurt dipping sauce. Loosely, this is what I did:

Yogurt dipping sauce
1 cup fat free yogurt
1/2 cup crumbled feta
Juice from one lemon
Your herb of choice (fresh chives, dried oregano or chopped fresh mint -- I used all three)
I also added a half of a seeded, peeled diced cucumber.

Yum -- the popcorn is a great idea! My colleague also suggested champagne grapes. They sound really good too!

2 lb red seedless grapes
3 cups dry Champagne or sparkling wine at room temperature
1/4 cup granulated sugar
1 tbsp lemon zest, plus more for garnish
2 tbsp superfine sugar

Cut grapes into small clusters of 2 to 4 grapes each. Pour Champagne into a plastic bowl with a tight-fitting lid. Add granulated sugar and zest; stir gently until sugar dissolves. Add grapes, cover and chill 8 hours. Pour off marinade. Dry grapes on a paper towel; sprinkle with superfine sugar and zest.

These are easy and fast (but messy) to make but really delicious! Next time I plan to mix in some blue cheese with the cream cheese. You can really omit the salt, IMO, because I think you really taste the olives and the nuts.

OLIVE BALLS

2 (8 ounce) packages cream cheese, softened
1 (7 ounce) jar pimento-stuffed green olives
1/2 teaspoon seasoned salt
1 1/2 cups chopped pecans

In a medium bowl, or food processor, mix together the cream cheese, seasoning salt, and 2 tablespoons of juice from the olive jar until well blended. Set aside in the refrigerator to firm up, about 30 minutes.
When the cheese mixture is firm, pack enough of the cream cheese mixture around the outside of each olive so that it is completely covered. Roll each olive ball in chopped pecans, and return them to the refrigerator until firm.
To serve, cut each olive ball in half, and arrange on a serving tray cut side up.

Would you paint this mirror?

I found this old mirror at an auction, and I love the original finish with its chippy patina. However, I'm not sure that the green color is standing out enough against the walls, which are also green. I was thinking of painting it cream or something, but I hate to lose that great old finish. What would you do? Zuzu

RE: LOOKING for: Baked Chicken wings (Follow-Up #7)

I always make my wings in the oven, and they turn out great. I start with frozen, separated wing sections. Place in a 425 degree on a greased cookie sheet. Cook for 50-55 minutes or until very crispy and golden colored. Place a mixture of Franks hot sauce and butter over top of the wings and continue cooking for 3-5 minutes, or until done. Serve with celery sticks and blue cheese dressing on the side.
