This is a traditional Taiwanese dish that we always order in our favorite Chinese restaurant. I begged the chef for this recipe and he very reluctantly gave it to me! I just made it for dinner tonight and couldn't wait to post this to share it with all of you!
This recipe was published in Cooking Light. I make it a bit different than it originally appeared, though (I don't use fat-free mayonnaise, saltines, etc. and also add some additional ingredients to suit my taste). If you would like to make the original version, just stick with the fat-free items and omit the last 4 items in the ingredient list (mayo through Tabasco) and you will have the original recipe. Prep time includes 20 minutes chilling time for the salmon cakes.
This is a wonderful lemon-flavored pesto. This was my first taste of pesto and I've never gone back!

I'm glad that you all like this. I freeze this now and keep it on hand for my spaghetti sauce or others sauces. It freezes great!
This has amazed our guests for years, but is so easy it leaves me time to enjoy their company! And sometimes hubby and I just have it together with a very oaky Chardonnay. The use of unsalted butter is imperative for this recipe, else it is way too salty! This serves 4 for a pretty filling appetizer or 2 for a meal with a salad. You can use clams instead of mussels if you wish. There will be plenty of broth to soak up with a nice crusty bread.
This is one of the recipes I've adpoted and made, using a tomato garlic mixture. We loved the added flavor of the roasted red peppers. To save time, you might want to use the roasted red peppers that you buy in a jar, which I think would work very well in this recipe. Hope you enjoy. We sure did.
I got this from a Garden Center Favorites cookbook quite a few years ago. It is THE BEST banana bread I have made--and I have tried a bazillion recipes. I keep coming back to this one!! I hope you like it.
