MPL Cookbook Club: Recipes-May 2021

online Cookbook Club hub of the Milton Public Library

Recipes from Martha Stewart's Appetizers

A small but mighty group joined us for this meeting. Our feedback: this book was generally well-liked. A few misses, but mostly hits.

We were also joined by bartender Michaela Collins from the Ashmont Grill, who gave a demonstration on how to make a cocktail/mocktail (recipe included below).

Gougeres (Becky & James Reinhold)

Arancini (Sara Truog)

* If taleggio cannot be found, fontina might be a good substitute.

Pickled Shrimp (Mary Alice Gallagher)

* The chef suggests that this can also be used in a salad. She cut up the shrimp and also used the onions and parsley from the marinade over greens.

Queso Fundido with Chorizo (Kate Kibbee)

* The chef felt chorizo was not a great complement to this queso, but enjoyed lime tortilla chips with it much better.

Sausage & Cheddar Balls (Jan Parr)

Wild Mushroom Pizza (Anne Bilodeau)

* The chef chose to add cheese, which the recipe does not call for.

Tortilla Espanola (Karen Murphy-Lind)

Mini Empanadas (Lisa Pred-Sosa)

* The chef used the beef filling.

Sausage & Apple Hand Pies (Rose Guerra)

Slice-and-Bake Crackers (Connie Spiros)

Stuffed Mushrooms (Rita Fontinha)

Cocktail (Michaela Collins)

* This is a picture of Connie's rhubarb simple syrup. Freeze the leftovers in an ice cube tray for the future!
