Desperate Housewives: Juicy Dishes & Saucy Bites
Katherine's Lemon Meringue Pie: Desperate HousewivesThis was the recipe that made Bree Van De Kamp furious. It's not my fault the girls like my pie better.
Edie's Quick And Easy No-Fail Lasagna: Desperate HousewivesEdie would always say, "The fastest way to a man's heart is through his stomach." She never believed that a woman should spend all day in the kitchen. She slipped this recipe to us just before her accident. So this recipe will immortalize Eddie in our hearts, minds and stomachs forever.
Susan's Spicy Mac And Cheese Ala Karl: Desperate HousewivesMy entire marriage to Karl can be traced through one particular dish: Spicy mac and cheese a la Karl. It was too salty the night Karl moved into the house. It was too watery the night I found lipstick on Karl's shirt. I burned it the night Karl told me he was leaving me for his secretary. This was the first recipe Bree gave me when I moved to Wisteria Lane.
Lynette's Mother's Day French Toast Waffles: Desperate HousewivesThroughout my chemo, it was really difficult to get food down. One of my favorite memories during that time was on Mother's Day. The kids surprised me with this great recipe. Tom created this recipe after finding a box of waffle mix in the pantry. It's not 100% homemade, but it was a sweet gesture. You will need a waffle iron though - luckily Mrs. McCluskey had one.
Gabrielle's Low-Fat Beef Enchiladas: Desperate HousewivesThis recipe is from my late mother-in-law Juanita. While I confess, I don't miss her (don't tell Carols), I do miss her famous beef enchiladas. I made a low-fat version so I don't have to feel too guilty.
Orange Blossom Muffins: Desperate HousewivesWhenever someone is down on Wisteria Lane, we quickly whip up a batch of our favorite treats, put some coffee on and huddle around a porch to get to the bottom of what's going on. So the next time one of your neighbors is feeling blue, whip up a batch of these delicious muffins. They are bound to delight!
Katherine's Modern Waldorf Salad: Desperate HousewivesThis is the recipe that really upset Bree at the Governor's Ball last year. I've decided to really piss her off and post the recipe here on BakeSpace. Just don't tell her I gave it to you. She still asks me for it! Get ready to turn a few heads! This is not your mother's Waldorf Salad.
Bree's Grandma's Apple Crumble: Deperate HousewivesThis is a family recipe that has been passed down from my Grandmother. If you've got a pile of apples, but not enough time to bake a pie then this is the recipe for you. An apple crumble will take less time and ingredients to prepare than an apple pie, but it's just as delicious and comforting. Last year we served it at the Founder's Ball and everyone just raved about it. Now we get a request for this recipe weekly. My publisher wants me to include it in my next cookbook, but instead I've decided to share it here.. with BakeSpace.
Susan's Caribbean Chimichangas: Desperate HousewivesBeing pregnant can open up your taste buds to flavors you've never had before. It can also make you so hungry that you will think you can eat a house! Before each Lamaze class I scarf down on one of these.
Scavo Family Mini Chicken Pizzas: Desperate HousewivesClosing our pizza restaurant was a real blow. While we believe there's nothing better than a fresh pizza, here's a quick pizza trick that you can whip together in minutes. While it's not an authentic pie crust, it's great to those days when you want something tasty, but you don't want to spend all day in the kitchen.
Angie's Grandma's Italian Pizzelle Cookies: Desperate HousewivesMy grandmother used to make this recipe for me growing up. I made the recipe when the ladies invited me over for a friendly chat and to get to know them. Because these cookies are part treat, part holiday decoration, it was easy to blend into their world. I wasn't expecting there would be drama when Katherine showed up. Luckily, the ladies on Wisteria Lane are so caught up in their own catastrophes that we can lay low. These are not low calorie cookies and my grandmother would always cook for 30 so this recipe is for 6 dozen cookies.
It's in the kitchens of Wisteria Lane - among the spice racks and handwritten recipe cards - where you can really understand the rich and varied personalities of everyone's favorite TV housewives. Each of their juicy recipes and saucy kitchen tips below provides a glimpse into their true selves.
