    If you are cooking for two this is a great recipe. I believe this recipe comes from Blue Hill Farm Country Inn, Blue Hill, Maine.

    Recipe #92053

    I adore this Beef Stroganoff. Most recipes I see use sour cream and/or a can of soup - neither of which I'm a big fan of. For a long time I just didn't make Beef Stroganoff because I craved something a little more rich and decadent. This took the prize. Adapted from a recipe I found in a Montessori School cookbook.

    Recipe #113510

    The basis of any good soup is in the stock that makes it. However, there are constraints in the current kitchen at the café and so, some recipes have to be modified to make things easier to prepare.

    Recipe #317569

    Your family or guest will enjoy this Italian style pot pie. It is very simple to put together. The recipe comes from Betty Crocker. Enjoy.

    Recipe #53897

    Like making a main dish out of artichoke spinach dip, but not quite as rich, and with the scrumptious addition of bacon. When I created this, I served it with penne noodles. I used fresh spinach leaves (whole) but I'm sure you could get away with using frozen.

    Recipe #317030

    From Gooseberry Patch Meals in Minutes. Another plain janer that my kids will eat.

    Recipe #142900

    I serve this sauce over breaded chicken, pork or veal cutlets. From Southern Living, 12/05

    Recipe #156678

    A rich, satisfying pasta dish that is cheap, nourishing, and pleasing.

    Recipe #82903

    This is a great after-work recipe when things are running late. It takes just 15 minutes from beginning to end if you get your water boiling for the pasta as soon as you walk in the door. This makes enough sauce for about 1 pound of pasta, the variety is up to you! I serve this with crusty bread and a quickly tossed green salad.

    This is a very simple salad to make that tastes impressive.

    This recipe came from a TOH cookbook. The original recipe called for chicken breasts, but I changed it to shrimp. I will probably try making this on the stove instead of in the microwave.

    Recipe #221616

    This is a recipe which we have used for those who do not eat meat here at the home. I found this on the Barilla web site. It is really very good and creamy.

    Recipe #163403

    I found the original recipe in Babytalk magazine-a yummy healthy recipe for busy moms! It can be made ahead of time and reheated, and the ingredients can be changed to suit your kids' tastes. I cut everything in bitesized pieces for my kids-they like picking out all the colorful vegetables! Also good without the ham, or with bacon instead. I make this a lot, and recently tried it in the crockpot-it took about 7 hours on high.

    Recipe #150058

    Our favorite pasta salad chock-full of things we love! Can be made without the shrimp, but with the shrimp you've only got to add a loaf of crusty bread for a perfect make-ahead summer meal. Cooking time includes 1 hour cooling and 1 hour chilling time.

    This recipe is equally great for company or a weekday meal. It's fast and easy to make. The Parmesan cheese compliments the delicate flavor of the sole.

    Recipe #30563

    This is a dish that is popular in Japan and usually sold as street food. This version is made with pork, although you could easily substitute chicken or tofu.

    From Cooking Light, May 1995. An easy risotto made in the microwave with sun-dried tomatoes and green chiles.

    Recipe #181254

    This is an easy to prepare, healthy, low-fat and delicious meal. What can beat that.

    Recipe #27978

    This is a recipe I was missing from home. Lennie very kindly came up with it for me. It comes from the Company's Coming Pasta book. I have included my own variations on it. The pasta actually cooks in the sauce. I love this stuff and so did my kids!

    Recipe #121901

    This casserole is a simple, easy to prepare, one-dish, meatless meal. Great for brunches. Be sure to drain the spinach really well. For non veggies, you can easily substitute ground breakfast sausage or crumbled bacon if you prefer.
