Beer Battered Onion Rings with Sriracha Dill Ranch Sauce*

Oysters Rockefeller*

My mom is one of the best cooks I know and she always reminds me that she is "better than I am" at cooking. I, of course, tell her she's crazy and she has nothing on me! It's a delicious rivalry that is continuous. I will have to say, however, her Oysters Rockefeller are by far the best I've ever had in my life. Growing up in Florida fresh seafood is always easy to get and she would make these as a special treat on a lazy Sunday and they were alw...

Lemon Ricotta Crostini with Honey*

This is one of my absolutely favorite appetizers because of how easy it is. You can whip this up in less than 5 minutes and people will think you're a cooking goddess. The freshness of the lemon really brightens up the bland ricotta and makes this a dish you won't forget. Preheat your oven to broil.
