Recipe Collection

elow is a collection of recipes that have been published on Feast & Merriment dating as far back at 2007, when I first started this little blog site.

I want you to know that you can trust these recipes, because I do. In fact, that’s why I started Feast & Merriment. I wanted to place to reference my favorite recipes, whether created by me or by another author, so I could refer back to them and trust them because I enjoyed it enough that I took the time to write about it.

I am humbled by the fact that everyone from close friends to unknown followers turn to me for advise on what to cook and how to do it.

I share this personal reflection with you because I want you to know that you can trust the recipes I have published across this site. They are here for me, and for you. The only thing I ask in return is if you had a great experience with a recipe you found here, please leave a rating and review so others are also inspired to feast!

Crostini

Easy, versatile and satisfying, crostini is the perfect appetizer for any amount of guests, an afternoon snack, and a great way to deliver bites of deliciousness.

How to make Ricotta Cheese

I recently learned that making Ricotta Cheese from scratch is incredibly easy. Seriously. You need only a few basic ingredients and common kitchen supplies. Here’s how to make it:

Candied Pecans

These sweet and spicy pecans are perfect to serve with cocktails or over vanilla ice cream! They also make a great homemade gift.

Entrees

How to Make Pasta Dough

Making homemade pasta is equal parts science and soul. I can’t teach the soul part, but I can teach you a thing or two!

For the Love of Ravioli

Ravioli making is an obsession. There is no other word for it. Yes, I make lots of other meals, but really all that other cooking is just to kill time until enough acceptable time has passed that I can make more ravioli.

Slow Cooker Salsa Chicken

A delicious recipe that checks all the boxes for a busy cook- low carb, low fat, family friendly, versatile, uses 3 affordable ingredients and is super EASY!

Basil Parmesan Sauce

This Basil Parmesan Sauce recipe is a favorite of mine because it is packed with fresh flavor, can be made in advance, and it’s extremely versatile. I use it on everything from classic turkey sandwiches to elegant beef tenderloin. It’s a perfect condiment to keep around and I am always finding new ways to use it.

Spiced Apple Chutney

This recipe for Apple Chutney is full of sweet and spice and everything nice! Perfect to serve with a sharp cheddar cheese or a fall pork roast.

Dessert

Apple Pie Bars

This incredible dessert recipe is possibly my favorite of all time. The layers of savory, salty, tart, and sweet guarantee a truly exceptional apple dessert.

Apple Crostata

This Apple Crostata is much easier to make than apple pie and loaded with wonderful, autumn flavors. It’s a quintessential rustic dessert and I just love it.

Berry Crumble Bars

This is the best raspberry crumble bars recipe. It is a perfect combination of a savory shortbread crust and sweet delicious fruit jam. These are a fan favorite!
