I think that there was another thread about summer or June shows, maybe that's why this didn't get much attention...I was gone over Memorial Day so I didn't see it and I usually only check the new posts....so............

I am making salads, the Mandarin Pasta Salad. I don't want the oven or the stove, I get hot enough as it is when I am just talking! I have never once made a stir-fry dish, I am hoping to get the SF skillet soon so that I can remedy that!

I don't have a set recipe that I use for shows...I usually try to steer them towards easy, light recipes that don't require turning the oven on. That being said, I have a host on Tuesday who wants to make the Pineapple Upsidedown Skillet Cake and do some Chicken Skewers on her indoor grill.

The chocolate hazlenut cake in the micro is very yummy, and doesn't heat up the house at all! (I've been making it at home when entertaining for that very reason!).

Last year, I used the ovens and sometimes it was ok and others I sweat my butt off. I'm going to try to use ovenless recipes.

How is the Mandarin Pasta Salad to make? Any tips?

And the Bananas foster stir fry? How's that?

The Mandarin pasta salad came out GREAT!! Although I did almost ALL the prepping at home. I think if anything, do the dressing ahead of time, cuz the onions have to re-hydrate. The Banans Foster went great also. Its soooooooooooo easy. didnt have my stir fry yet, so I went with the 12in skillet (WAY TO BIG) definetly the 10 in. I loved using 2 of my favs (microplane grater & citrus press) VERY VERY simple to prep & make & serve...YUMMY:D :D :D

Since the ice cream sandwich maker is the special. All my hosts have agreed to do ice cream themes. We are making some ice cream sandwiches, ice cream sandwich torte or ice cream sundae bars and then shakes or alcohol ice cream drinks.

I try to pick my theme based on the guest/host special. The ice cream sandwich torte is good because you can make it on the chilzanne rectangular server which is next month's host special.

I've wondered about the Ice Cream sand. torte... is it hard to cut without the sandwiches caving in?

No it does not cave in. You do have to put it in the freezer before cutting it. However, if you have it on the chilzanne server while you are making it and then put it in the freezer for 1/2 hour - you should be good to go.

VERY YUMMY!!!!

I "think" last year in a Weekly Bites or something, they said to cut the torte with the Serrated Knife for easier cutting. Anyone else remember that??

I'm doing the Chicken Caesar Salad Pizza, preparing the crust ahead. AND the Ice Cream Sand Torte.

I've heard of so many people having problems with the Ice Cream Sandwich maker that I'm afraid to try it....but I'll sure talk about it at the shows. I love those gift with purchase incentives.

I'm just wondering why people would want the ice cream sandwich maker when they can do the same thing with the measure-all cup?!?

If you look on the Pampered Chef website it has step by steps printable instructions on how to use the ice cream sandwich maker. I found it very helpful.

So I am killing 2 birds w/ 1 stone getting rid of eggs w/out throwing them out and selling the chillzane and booking shows!

The 12 minute cakes are made in the Fluted Stone... you microwave them.
Do a search on 12 minute cakes and/or 123 cakes on here, and you'll find lots of recipes for it!

Definitely try it at home first... and remember all microwaves are different.

If you are doing the 12 minute cake make sure to ask each and every host if they have a full size microwave! I do these cakes all the time and I had 2 last week where the pan wouldn't turn. It can be saved if that happens though, 30-35 minutes in the oven at about 350.

The Ice Cream Sandwich Torte was a great hit at my summer shows last year. I did not have any problems. I use the chillzanne and let is re-freeze while serving the main dish. Serve the torte during the order taking portion of the show. The Slice n Serve (the metal one) works well with this dessert also.

As for my shows, I do not have set recipes. I let the host choose the type of recipe and then let her choose from several different recipes. I really like the Risotto, side/side Calzones, the Med. Cafe Salad for main dishes. I choose desserts based on the host's taste, ie, chocolate, fruit etc. If chocoloate, the molten skillet brownie, if fruit, the strawberry pastries, or the fruit tart on the cookie (sorry cannot remember the name) from past celebration shows.

I might start doing the micro cakes at shows again, but had a difficult time last year with microwaves that were to small, or low powered. But everyone has such good luck with them, I might try again. It really makes 2 recipes so much easier.

I love the Mandarin Pasta Salad. It is one of my very favorite recipes. I use every tool I can and LOVE the Micrplane Adjustable Grater for the fresh ginger. It's the only way to go. I also use the Julienne Peeler and add strips of carrots. You can find this recipe on the PC website under past celebrations recipes.
The Super Salad recipe cards are great too.

Mandarin Pasta Salad

I posted the recipe a while back and I've also seen it as an attachment, so if you search on it you'll probably find it. I have a question for those of you that do it at shows. When you add the onion soup mix and let it reconstitute, do you strain the dressing or just dump it in? I personally can't stand the onion bits, so I've been straining it.

Thanks!

What does the Pasta Salad taste like? I hear everyone raving, but... the onion soup mix part turns me off! Isn't it too salty or something? I have the recipe.. I just am afraid to try it because it sounds weird.

Try It You'll Like It!!!:D :D :D
Also you are not adding salt & nothing else has salt in it, except for the soup mix. I like to add extra orange juice & less vinegar. ( actually I have been getting small tangerines or clementines & using them with the citrus press ) I just love using that.:D

I've been making the Spinach/Strawberry salad (Casual Cooking - i think). I'm substituting splenda for sugar in the poppyseed dressing. Wonderful!! It's been a huge hit! With that I've made the Rasberry Lemonade in the quick stir pitcher.

I tried a new recipe last week it was found in the casual cookbook . It was the italian salad pizza. Use boboli crust . there is 10 min of bake time but do that early with host to melt the parm as it suggests. Turn the oven off and prep for the show. Not only will it be cool when guests arrive but the smell of bread will be a heavenly scent. The pizza by the way, is delicious!
