What fall shows have you on the edge of your seat right now?

“Top 3 reasons why this is one of my favorite ‘go-to’ appetizers: one, the recipe only calls for three ingredients, two, the total prep time is about five minutes, and three, it’s a guaranteed crowd-pleaser. These little guys will disappear before you know it!” —Ali Ebright, GimmeSomeOven.com

(1)  BRIE & RASPBERRY PHYLLO CUPS 

Ingredients:

  • 1 package (1.9 oz.) mini phyllo tart shells
  • 6 oz. brie, rind removed
  • 15 raspberries

Method:

1. Preheat oven to 350F.

2. Place the tart shells on an ungreased baking sheet.  Measure 1 teaspoon brie, and carefully place it in a tart shell.  Top with one raspberry.  Repeat with remaining shells.  Bake for 5-8 minutes, or until brie is melted.  Serve immediately.

Ali’s Tip:

“These would of course also be delicious with any other berries, or berry jams/spreads!”

“One of my favorite treats in the summer is a cool and creamy no-bake cheesecake which is particularly nice because you do not have to turn the oven on to enjoy it.” —Kevin Lynch, ClosetCooking.com

(2) BLUEBERRY MASCARPONE CHEESECAKE WITH AMARETTI CRUST 

Ingredients:

  • 1/4 cup amaretti cookie crumbs
  • 1/4 cup graham cracker or digestive cookie crumbs
  • 2 tablespoons butter, melted
  • 6 tablespoons heavy cream, cold
  • 1 (8 ounce) package of mascarpone, room temperature
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 1 lemon, zest
  • 1/4 cup blueberry caramel sauce
  • 1 cup blueberries

Directions:

  1. Mix the amaretti cookie crumbs, graham cracker crumbs and butter and press them into the bottom of two 4 inch spring form pans.
  2. Bake in a preheated 350F oven until golden brown on the edges, about 8-12 minutes and let cool completely.
  3. Whip the cream until it forms soft peaks.
  4. Beat the sugar and lemon zest into the mascarpone and then gently fold in the whipped cream.
  5. Divide the blueberry caramel sauce between the 2 spring form pans and top with the cream mixture.
  6. Chill in the fridge for several hours to over night, top with blueberries and enjoy.
Kevin’s Two-Cents:
“The blueberries and almond flavored crust perfectly compliment each other and a hint of lemon brightens everything up.”

  1. Colombian food varies from region to region, and there are dishes in some areas which are unknown in others. Where bread is concerned, though, most Colombians would agree that this is a staple food.
