    I compiled this cookbook after years of Zaaring and most recently posting recipes from other sites that I make over and over again.

    My family's favorite. This is a very meaty lasagna. We prefer it with cottage cheese, but you can easily substitute ricotta.

    Recipe #28768

    This is a simple all-purpose mild brine for chicken, turkey and pork. It is fabulous used when grilling chicken pieces. The meat will never be dry.

    Recipe #66414

    I finally mastered pizza making at home! It was a day to celebrate, since this pizza is actually better than you often go out for. When I make this my husband says it's always the best part of his day. It's a combination of recipes and techniques that I put together from Cook's Illustrated, a very good cook I know, and some "serious" pizza guys. This recipe makes a 13x18 inch half-sheet size medium crust pizza, OR two traditional round thin crust pizzas, and the crust is crispy/tender. (I find I can get a thinner crust from a round pizza, since there's a little more room to spread the dough out.) The sauce is very flavorful and I've tried to include all my tips for success! You MUST have a pizza stone for this, and pulling the pizza on the parchment onto an upside-down half sheet pan makes it easy to transfer the pizza to the stone. The sauce recipe will make enough for 3 medium pizzas, OR 6 thin crust pizzas, so reserve the extra for another pie. Layers for the topping need to be thin enough to allow the crust to crisp. (I know it goes against all instinct, but it's very important to please practice restraint!) I've revised the recipe to include a little less of the toppings for better success. Preparation time includes rising time for the dough and may seem like a little work, but once you've tried this you may never go out for pizza again!

    Recipe #123710

    Yeah, I know there are, like, a thousand meat loaf recipes posted online. The glaze and cheese in this one makes it special. I hope you will agree with me after you have tried it. It is another of my own made up recipes never posted before or anywhere else. For an interesting twist, sub sweet or spicy Italian sausage for the ground pork and top it all off with spaghetti sauce and mozzarella cheese. I have even added diced pepperoni with good results. Just plain and simple comfort food. Makes great sandwiches the next day or freeze the leftovers for another quick meal.

    Recipe #151571

    A really great tapa that will get you many compliments. Really simple to make. The original recipe was by Roxanne. I have served this at many of my "Wine and Tapa" parties and was always pleased by the response.

    This is an easy, simple recipe that goes over well. You can make the filling ahead and scoop out the tomatoes well ahead of time but do not fill the tomatoes until just before serving. I like to add the lettuce to the filling just before filling the tomato however the original recipe said you can mix it in when you combine all the stuffing ingredients. Looks great on a buffet table

    Recipe #47444

    This is my mother's soup, it is so easy and unbelievably delicious. I made it at the last minute for my New Year's Eve guests and I received raves. It is convinient as the vegetables can be made ahead of time and reheated with the soup with the cream/half & half with the cheese at the last minute. I use less cheese, use at your discretion!

    Recipe #203366

    I made this for a friend's birthday dinner and it was so good my husband asked me to make again over the weekend. Easy, flavorful marinade for flank steak. I adapted this from Bon Appetit.

    Recipe #235037

    Goes great with tortilla chips or vegetable sticks. It's good with those Fritos "Scoops", too.

    Recipe #38564

    This has been one of my favorites for years. I made it for my inlaws when my husband and I were dating. It was such a hit, I knew I was "in" when his grandmother asked me if she could share some with her friends at Bingo.

    Recipe #208895

    This is from Cooking Light. "From the state of Bahia in northern Brazil, moqueca de peixe (moo-KAY-ka duh PAY-shuh) is a tropical fish stew fragrant with garlic and peppers, and enriched with coconut milk."

    This chicken pot pie recipe takes a little time, but it is WELL WORTH IT!! This is an all-time favorite in our family. Great on a cold winter day.

    Recipe #10744

    These are superb with soups and salads or as a simple appetizer. Try experimenting with other toppings such as grated parmesan cheese or grated lemon rind. Taken from the Family Circle Cookbook. The easiest way to apply the egg mixture is if you spoon some in the middle and then use a pastry brush to spread it to the edges of the chip...enjoy!

    Recipe #206647

    I love gazpacho and this is the best recipe I have found for it. From Epicurious.

    My husband found this recipe, we made them for his marathon and he loved them. I have substituted peanuts, for the walnuts and omitted the raisins and they still taste great. Chewy yet crunchy.

    Recipe #52779

    This recipe is SOO good! It came from the "BBQ USA" cookbook with a few modifications. They list it as an appetizer but I have also served the shrimp with a salad as a meal. My seven year old even requested this for his birthday dinner last week! Cooking time reflects marinating time. Yield is an estimate. It depends on if you serve this as an appetizer or main dish.

    Recipe #88921

    This sauce is good with roast beef, pork or chicken.
