|Spicy Cayenne Toasts with Sun-Dried Tomato Spread|
I have to say, all the recipes turned out pretty darn good! If you like spicy, the Cayenne Toasts are definitely for you, with the spice nicely offset by the creamy goat cheese. The Macadamia-Stuffed Mushrooms were also delicious, however, they don't necessarily travel so well. Right out of the oven though they are truly delectable! I served the Mushrooms and the Cayenne Toasts on a bed of dry, black beans to keep them in place and also, because I thought it made a nice presentation! The Plantation Salad is a curious mixture of wild rice, mushrooms, vermouth, chicken breast, shrimp, black olives and lemon juice to name just a few ingredients. While it might sound odd, the end result is positively delicious! Also, the longer it sits the more flavorful it becomes - what's not to love about that?

White Trash (pg. 247)
Mix 1/2 package Crispix cereal, 5 ounces pretzel twists, 1/2 can salted peanuts, 1/2 pound M&M's Chocolate Candies, 1/4 cup pecans and 1/4 cup raisins in a large bowl. Melt 1 pound white chocolate in a double boiler or microwave. Add the cereal mixture and mix carefully. Spread on waxed paper and let stand until firm.
** I melted the white chocolate in the microwave which saved alot of time and cleanup!
** I spread the mixture on wax paper on a cookie sheet and then popped it into the fridge to help it firm up faster. After all, the sooner it sets the sooner you can eat it!
