    From the Williams-Sonoma "Vegetable" cookbook. DH and I enjoyed this as a side to a lemon chicken recipe. Choose either fresh or frozen artichokes (the default when listing this would not let me write "or"). We used frozen artichoke hearts from Trader Joe's and it turned out really nice.

    Recipe #299557

    This excellent grilled duck recipe was found in my Bobby Flay "Boy Gets Grill" cookbook. DH and I loved it. According to the recipe, the leftover spice rub works well on any poultry or meat. DH and I halved the rub ingredients (and the other ingredients) to suit 2 duck breasts and had a significant amount of rub left over. Prep time includes rest time.

    Recipe #421994

    Found this online from the Mayo Clinic. DH and I thought this was a great way to prepare acorn squash. We really enjoyed it. We had a large (2-lb) acorn squash, so we just used one. The recipe says it serves 4, but DH and I ate it all, so I am saying it serves 2-4.

    Recipe #473532

    DH and I enjoyed this flavorful, easy to make recipe from the January 2009 Bon Appetit. Carbonnade is a Belgian beef stew flavored with beer, onions, and brown sugar. Bon Appetit substituted chicken thighs for this twist on an old favorite. Serve over egg noodles.

    Recipe #396012

    This fast and easy recipe is credited to Cynthia Charbeneau of Traverse City, MI. I made the recipe from the www.fustinis.com website. Fustini's is a store in Traverse City that specializes in all sorts of different olive oils and balsamic vinegars. The balsamics and olive oils also come in infused varieties (I just bought a pomegranate infused balsamic for salads). I love shopping in this store when I am up north. On the website, very few ingredient proportions are listed for this recipe, so I listed the proportions I tried tonight. I would never have thought I would enjoy strawberries with fish, but I really thought this dish was a winner. DH said he "liked it." I used Fustini's 18-year aged balsamic vinegar. I omitted the sugar and water. DH always cooks the tuna steaks by first putting them in the oven on 200F for a short time before pan searing them. This way, they are still rare (but not cold) on the inside. I put the strawberry/balsamic combination in a saucepan on the stovetop between medium low and low, just enough to warm them up. I served with one of our favorite salads, Recipe #191024 191024, using Fustini's 12-year-old white balsamic vinegar.

    Recipe #407204

    This recipe comes from the Black Dog Tavern's "Summer on the Vineyard" Cookbook. DH and I made this for dinner a few nights ago and thought it was delicious.

    Recipe #298322

    This recipe differs a bit from the others already posted in that it contains egg and simple syrup. I enjoyed this today with my Sunday brunch. It is from the Nola Cuisine website. I didn't have freshly grated nutmeg for garnish so I sprinkled a bit of ground nutmeg on top and it was still good.

    Recipe #503336

    DH and I enjoyed this recipe from the March 2013 "Vegetarian Times" last night. We used Recipe #443456 443456, which we often do, for the crust and made our own pesto. Since we used our own crust, we baked less time than the recipe specifies. You can roast the broccoli while the tomatoes are roasting so make sure you read steps 1 and 2 at the same time.

    Recipe #499210

    I made this tasty "meatloaf" for dinner tonight. It is from the Vegandad.blogspot.com site. DH said, "this is pretty good for being vegan." Next time, I will make more sauce, maybe even double it. I found that I did not have any "excess" sauce to spoon over my loaves. Also, I had a little less than 1/2 cup of brown sugar on hand, which was fine for our tastes, as I don't like things too sweet. I may even cut back to 1/4 cup next time. The recipe did not say to use prepared mustard so I used dried. The cayenne is to taste, but that part keeps disappearing. I grated the onion in my mini food processor as I was tired of using the box grater after the tempeh. I served with mashed potatoes and roasted broccoli.

    Recipe #503699

    Made this yummy spicy salad for lunch today. DH and I liked it a lot. It's from the BistroKatie.com blog. Cook time includes cooling time for the bulgur.

    Recipe #503232

    From the Fox13now.com website credited to Jennifer Burns of Dan's Market. I made a half batch of this egg salad for lunch today. Actually, I used 4 eggs (what I had on hand) and halved the other ingredients. I used pickle relish for the dill pickle. Be careful with your cajun seasoning. I read somewhere that paprika should be the highest proportion in a good Cajun seasoning. Other types can be heavy on the salt (like the one I used) so my salad was a little salty when tasted on its own, but fine once I put it into a sandwich. I did not use salt and pepper to taste. I served on toasted English muffins with tomatoes, but skipped the lettuce. Prep was very fast for me because I used an egg cooker. The recipe does not reflect time to hard boil the eggs.

    Recipe #503874

    Can't remember where I found this recipe, but DH and I made this one year around Halloweeen and really enjoyed it.

    Recipe #299636

    I made this healthy recipe from the Taste of Home Feb/March 2011 issue today for lunch and really enjoyed it. I used Sabra roasted pine nut hummus. I usually also dice up kalamata olives and include them in the wrap. This recipe also works fine using Gardein brand faux chickn tenders.

    Recipe #460271

    I absolutely love this dish. Even my father, who does not like garlic or cauliflower that much, was raving about this dish. It is essential to use fresh bread crumbs. I usually buy a baguette or country-style bread from the grocery store, and after cutting off the crust and tearing it into slices, put it in the food processor until it forms crumbs the size I want. This recipe is from the Williams Sonoma Vegetable Cookbook.

    Recipe #259989

    This recipe sounded a bit different, but it turned out really nice. Even DH, who was skeptical, enjoyed it. I got the recipe from a local market called Westborn. These were very easy to prepare.

    Recipe #435640

    We made this recipe credited to Mark Bittman that was published in the April/May 2013 "Vegetarian Times" and really enjoyed it. My friend and I topped ours with parmesan. We used fresh thyme and the Roma tomatoes. The recipe indicates that the dish will keep for several days in the fridge or several months in the freezer.

    Recipe #499473

    I made this tasty recipe for lunch today. I really liked it. DH did not care for it as much. I used a hot curry powder, which really gave the dish a nice kick. From the October 2011 issue of "Real Simple." I had to simmer somewhat longer than specified in the recipe to get the consistency that I liked.

    Recipe #471139

    I got this "in a hurry" salsa recipe from the McCormick's website. The chipotle chile powder that I use is pretty hot and it is not McCormick's, so I might scale the powder back a little next time. Brought this to a party and it was eaten in a hurry. Because it requires very little chopping, it was ready quickly. I easily doubled the recipe with good results. Prep time does not include 30 minutes in the fridge.

    Recipe #480023

    DH and I made these as a dessert for a dinner party where we would be served Merlot. Everyone loved them. This is from my book, "The Wine Club" by Maureen Petrosky. I am posting the recipe as it is written, however, DH and I baked our pears, having already halved them, as we could not fit them into the 8X8X2-inch baking dish whole. This worked out fine. According to the recipe, these pears will serve 12 if halved, and 24 if cut into quarters.

    Recipe #367863

    DH and I made this easy, tasty recipe from Bon Appetit tonight and really enjoyed it.
