In an attempt to spare you from serious top five friday lameness, I present to you top five yummy recipes. (click on the name to get the recipe.) 

1.  Rosé Sangria It’s made with sparkling rosé wine,  and you can pretty much throw whatever you have on hand in there.  It’s a delicious and dangerous concoction!

2.  Sugar Coated Pecans These are a quick, easy and tasty holiday or any time treat.  And you can make them a lot cheaper than you could buy!  The recipe works well with walnuts too.

3.   Chicken Vesuvio This is a delicious chicken and potatoes dish.  My mom and I had it at Harry Carrey’s in Chicago a few years ago and when we got home, we searched for the recipe and it’s a great fall back recipe.  Play with it and you’ll see there are a few things you can leave out (peas) and a few things you can substitute (chicken breast instead of a jointed chicken).

4.  Garlic Mashed Potatoes Yum!  These are one of my favorite side dishes to prepare.  I love the flavor the Romano cheese gives these potatoes.

5.  Mushroom, Bacon, Swiss Strata  This is an Everyday Bailey staple.  She made it for me last weekend when I came over to wait for the Sleep Number bed guys to bring her new bed.  I haven’t made it yet, but it seems so easy. And you can add additional things you like (tomatoes!)

A tip, just in case you don’t notice.  Several of the recipes are from www.allrecipes.com and at their website you can convert recipes to nearly any serving amount.  (The standard Garlic Mashed Potato recipe is 100 servings!)

Have a great weekend!
