I’ve been negligent about posting the most recent batch of 15 recipes completed. Here they are.

Notes: While the texture isn’t the same as my uncle’s traditional chopped liver the flavor is surprisingly similar. Instead of liver and eggs, this recipe uses zucchini and toasted in walnuts.

Notes: I stopped buying packaged salad dressing years ago. Making your own salad dressing is easy, less expensive, and healthier. This was a perfect dressing for early spring salads.

Notes: During the winter I fill up on soups and hearty dishes. Once spring hits I crave greens. This was a bed of baby spinach topped with brie, raw pecans, and strawberries.

Notes: I made this for Passover as an appetizer. I roasted the beets with a little Rosemary at 375 for about 45 minutes. I put the carrots in on a sheet drizzled with balsamic vinegar and olive oil. I put them in about fifteen minutes after the beets because the carrots cook a bit faster.

Notes: I couldn’t find good watercress so I used mustard greens instead. They are both stronger greens with a more peppery flavor so I often substitute them for one another.

Rating: Okay

83. Chocolate Covered Strawberries

Notes: This was so easy just melt good bittersweet chocolate on the stove and dip the strawberries. Place them on parchment paper to let them harden. We learned the hard way that white chocolate and milk chocolate cook doesn’t melt evenly without burning so if you want to use those types of chocolate make sure you use a double boiler.

89. Strawberry Rhubarb Pocket Pie

Notes: I took strawberries and the leftover rhubarb in sugar and lemon from the salad above and wrapped them in puff pastry. You can make four, four-inch pies from one sheet. Next time I’d paint the puff pastry in egg so it would get more golden when it bakes. Make sure to cut vents in the puff pastry so the pies don’t explode.
