    Our little community in Maine occasionally does ethnic-themed potluck dinners. Found this on an ethnic foods website and made it for Greek Night (figuring everyone else would do the usual spanakopita, mousaka, etc.) The fresh rosemary really makes this dish -- you might even want to up the amount a bit!

    Recipe #391843

    These additively delicious, overstuffed, little sandwiches are a popular snack in Central Mexico. Traditionally, tortas are made with bolillos (bobbin-shaped bread rolls) or sometimes teleras (flat bread rolls) both are made from the same French bread type dough. The only difference is the shape of the roll. French bread rolls are a good substitute, as are sourdough rolls. The idea is to use a crusty roll with a soft interior. In making the torta, one starts by cutting the roll horizontally, then removing some of the crumb to create a hollow for the filling. These sandwiches hold up well for several hours, without getting soggy, which makes them good for parties and picnics. The inspiration for this recipe comes from the delicious tortas I've eaten in Mexico City, combined with some useful information in Diana Kennedy's book: "The Art of Mexican Cooking, Traditional Mexican Cooking for Aficionados".

    Recipe #132065

    Derived from the Spanish spelling of the Quechua name, kinwa or occasionally "Qin-wah", Quinoa originated in the Andean region of South America, where it was successfully domesticated 3000 to 4000 years ago for human consumption. Raw diet here I come!!!! Found on http://rawgirl2.blogspot.com.

    Recipe #430293

    From "Good Eats," episode "Flat Is Beautiful: Going Crackers". You really need an aluminum-free double-acting baking powder for this, but if you can't find one, go with 1/2 t baking powder and 1 t cream of tartar.

    Posted by request for an all whole wheat cracker. This recipe I have not tried. I found it in a recipe book put out by Bosch called "The Natural Nine Cooking with Whole Grains". Hope you enjoy it.

    Recipe #101876

    I started making these yummy little pizzas so I could have a quick hot lunch in just minutes in the toaster oven but not the gazillion saturated fat-grams in most pizzas. We often serve them as an impromptu appetizer. I especially like these, because their crust gets very crispy - the way I love it! Take this basic idea and add your favorite toppings. I always add onion, and red peppers.

    Recipe #54646

    This is a different and very tasty salad. I have even added cooked chicken or beef to the mixture. Prep time does not include boiling the pasta and cooking time is chilling time. Adjust all amounts to taste.

    Recipe #97956

    Peppers of every kind are crucial to Cajun cooking, this colourful salad uses red, yellow and green capiscums, as well as peppery spices. Make it as chilli-hot as you can stand, to give this vigorous dish its authentic Cajun effect! Posted for ZWT5, from Linda McCartneys "World Of Vegetarian Cooking" The recipe uses recipe#373598 for the vinaigrette, though you might choose to use another.

    Recipe #373571

    This recipe is by Sara Foster, My Recipes. She recommends caramelized walnuts as well. YUM! This could be a great breakfast, snack or desert.

    Recipe #425703

    Recipe for making flour tortillas from Thibeault's Table. Credit to Ann from the gardenweb internet addy as the majority of this receipe comes from her post: http:// ths.gardenweb.com/ forums/ load/recipex/ msg0611460316237.html?7 I like this easy recipe for tortillas that uses staples usually on hand. I am battling cancer and cannot eat yeast or sugar, so tortillas are a great alternative to bread!

    Recipe #204109

    Italian Weight Watchers meal. Feels light but is really filling! Tastes good cold or warm.

    We will whip these up sometimes just for a bit of a change in the traditional. Sometimes I will make the BLT mix up before leaving for the ballpark so that when we get home all we have to do is throw them together and EAT!! Prep time includes frying bacon.

    Recipe #35323

    The story behind this comes from a simple recipe I had found, then made changes to make our own. My husband loved it so much the first time I made it I literally had to say to him "Put down your fork or you'll explode". So from that point on we have called it by this name. The ingredients may seem bland, but combined together they taste great and present well. Enjoy.

    Recipe #108804

    This is published in the October 2004 Bon Appetit as open-faced sandwiches, but I make this as a 12-inch pizza (a big, round, open-faced sandwich?). I wasn't sure whether we would like the sweetness of the apple butter, but there is enough savory/salty flavor in the rest of the recipe that it works well (I probably used more Dijon, though, and less apple butter, than called for in the recipe). In pizza format, it is good with some sauteed onion and some very well wrung out thawed frozen spinach added. I think this is a recipe that depends a lot on the types of ingredients used; since it has the apple butter, sweeter mustards and milder cheeses would probably not be as good. The relative proportions of Dijon and apple butter (and meat and cheese) can be adjusted for personal taste.

    Recipe #342101

    This Chinese fried rice has the flavor those other recipes are missing. Tastes like takeout. I want to dedicate this dish to Bergy, whose recipe "AM & B's Indonesian Mehoon" has inspired this dish. Make sure you season your rice with salt before it cooks. Add some butter to the cooking water, as well. Other seasonings should be added before you cook, as well, so it has time to get inside the rice. If you like sesame flavor, add 1 tsp. of it after you add the green onions, but do not use it as a cooking oil because it easily burns.

    Recipe #38748

    Quick to toss together for breakfast, lunch or snack on the run.

    Recipe #117477

    This recipes comes from a fellow Israeli foodie, Gabi Shahar. I tried it out recently (am on a quinoa kick these days) and it's very good. A good alternative to tabbouli or couscous as a cool summer grain salad.

    Recipe #65131

    Edith Gump has been a close friend of mine since kindergarten. She used to eat the dirt that I handed her in the sandbox and now her kids eat dirt, too. I guess that sort of thing runs in the genes. Anyway- Edith and I were given the same basic potato salad recipe in Home Economics in High School and together we have tweaked and rewritten this countless times. This is the result of our collaborations and many years of name calling and face scratching.

    Recipe #130557

    This a pretty, easy to make salad for a party, or just for that special someone.

    Try this in a whole-wheat pita pocket with fresh spinach and sliced red onion.
