I haven't made these..they just sounded good to me:


Bloody Mary Shrimp Cocktail


Prep Time: 5 minutes

Cook Time: 5 minutes

Makes: 6 Servings



6 cups water

1 lemon, halved

1 cup dry white wine

1 bay leaf

1/2 teaspoon peppercorns


1 bottle of your favorite vodka

1 bottle of a good store bought Bloody Mary mix

1 teaspoon cracked pepper

Hot sauce, to taste

Worcestershire sauce

Olive juice, to taste

Bamboo skewers, soaked in water for 30 to 60 minutes


For The Shrimp:

1 pound large shrimp, peeled and deveined



Place 6 cups of water in a medium saucepan. Add lemon halves, white wine, bay leaf, peppercorns and salt, to taste. Bring to a boil and add the shrimp. Cook for 1 minute or until the shrimp turn pink. Immediately plunge shrimp into a bowl of ice water to stop the cooking process. Strain the shrimp and place into a bowl in the refrigerator until ready to use.


In a large pitcher, mix 1-ounce vodka for every 6 ounces Bloody Mary mix. Season with cracked pepper, hot sauce, Worcestershire sauce, olive juice and shake. Serve in decorative glasses with skewered shrimp as garnish.



Brie En Croute 2


(Makes: 12 Servings)




1 sheet frozen Puff Pastry

1 lb. Brie Cheese (round)

1 pkg. Boursin Cheese

1 egg

1 tsp. water




Preheat oven to 400F degrees.


Beat the egg and water together in a small bowl. Thaw pastry 20 minutes; on a floured surface roll to a 15-inch circle.


Slice Brie in half horizontally. Spread Boursin cheese on one half. Re-assemble Brie and place in the center of pastry.


Brush pastry edges with egg wash, and pull up sides to enclose Brie. Place seam side down on ungreased baking sheet. If desired, decorate the top with pastry scraps. Brush with egg wash.


Bake for 20 minutes. Let stand 10 minutes (at least) before serving.




Boursin cheese is a spreadable garlic and herb cheese. Boursin Poivre contains a lot of black pepper for those who like pepper. Boursin is available in many grocery stores but can almost certainly be found in higher quality produce and specialty stores. If Boursin or Boursin Poivre cannot be found, Alouette can be used as a substitute.
