This is our favorite New Deli recipe for a Greek classic- Dolmas! Since I have a few grape vines, and autumn’s really setting in, I figured I better pull this recipe out and get to work on that brine- easier than shopping for grape leaves in a jar! We LUV these.

Tomato Tart: Skip Mayo, Make w/Real Ingredients!
I had an exceptional tomato tart at a friend’s house. It was such a treat. I suspected it had mayo in it- when my friend told me it was a Paula Deen recipe, I knew I was right! But I wanted to make something like it for a tea party in the garden. I skipped…

Scallop Wrapped w/Bacon, Tomato & Basil: Killer Appetizer!
I just made these for a fancy, four-course New Deli Dinner Party. Wow, they were a hit! Yes, scallops are a bit pricey, but aren’t they worth it on special occasions?!
