Gail's Recipe Swap

Of all the forums on the internet, I've spent the most time on Gail's Recipe Swap, at Epicurious. I posted there from 1995 (yes, there really WAS an internet at that time) as "Julie R - WA" until 2005 or 06. I've tried to identify all the recipes in my collection which came from Gail's since then. Although Gail's is no longer, I owe a lot of my favorite recipes to the great folks there... it was a wonderful place! If you have recipes from Gail's, let me know and I'll add them to the cookbook.

Adapted from a recipe in "The Taste of Summer" by Diane Rossen Worthington. Prep time includes marination.

Recipe #116898

This is based on the recipe by Bob Blumer from the "Surreal Gourmet Bites" cookbook. This simple caramelization method transforms this much maligned veggie into a knock-your-socks-off side dish or sweet snack that you won't be able to get enough of!

Recipe #115153

Topped with gooey caramel and crunchy pecans, this apple bread is a hit with kids and adults alike!

Recipe #30424

Zingy, tasty, chicken breasts! These are soooooooo darn good... :)

Recipe #27740

This has been a real hit gatherings! I often make a double batch.

Recipe #27186

This stuff is addicting!! I serve salsa with broken pieces of bread or crackers. You may toss it with pasta or put on a salad, the possibilities are endless. I'm often asked to make it for parties because most people just adore this dip. -ADDED: I just recently discovered that this is Michael Chiarello's recipe & here all this time I thought my mother in law was a genius for coming up with this wonderful recipe.

Recipe #14361

I’ve made this recipe often in the past, and while putting together my LJ recipe entry list (see ) I discovered it again! I adapted it to our tastes. It was one of our favorites, is perfect for romantic dinners, and it’s absolutely delicious! Although it's easy to make, it takes a bit of time but is worth every minute. In my Sunday, February 10th, 2002 LJ entry, and her original was posted by KC at Gail’s Recipe Swap. Thanks, KC! She said “I always add lots of extra olives and dates. They taste wonderful. I have even caught friends in the kitchen looking through the pan for more olives and dates.”

Recipe #246912

This recipe was shared by NLB on Gail's, and although I haven't been able to find a definitive source for where it originated, it does look delicious!

Recipe #118113

I love cumin, and am looking forward to trying this one out! This was shared by Sue Z Q on Gail’s. Adapted from Cooking Light, Dec. 2001.

Recipe #117145

Unbelievably easy, wonderfully delicious! It’s good cold as well as hot. Prep time includes marination.

Recipe #116889

A rich and delicious curry soup!

Recipe #115504

This recipe for a delicious and easy rice side dish came from Michael at Gail’s Recipe Swap, and I’ve fiddled with it a little. Although I don’t get to eat rice often, this one looks so tasty I have to put it here for safe keeping when I get to splurge! :)

Recipe #115503

Moyn at Gail's says of these sweets: "These are scrumptious! Don't be fooled that the recipe and cleanup are so easy."

Recipe #114201

Adapted from a recipe in "A Treasury of Great Recipes" by Mary and Vincent Price, this is an excellent loaf that Mr. Price called his "house bread." He states that it has a taste and texture very close to real French bread. Enjoy it fresh and warm, spread with garlic butter and sprinkled chopped parsley and chives. Mr. Price suggests it is excellent with Dungeness crab, mustard mayonnaise, and Italian Soave white wine. The original recipe employed hand kneading, while this recipe has been updated using a modern mixer (a KitchenAid works great!). Source: Michael Rodgers (Michael in Phoenix), Gail's Recipe Swap.

Recipe #111945

Adapted from "A Treasury of Great Recipes" by Mary and Vincent Price, published in 1965 - an excellent cookbook! Mr. Price says that the recipe got its name because it was usually made on Friday (their cooking and baking day) and then was eaten cold over the weekend.

Recipe #111944

Rich, savory scalloped potatoes that you'll want to make again and again! Careful, though - they're far from lowfat. :) Based on a recipe from Food and Wine Magazine.

Recipe #105027

This recipe is from Ron from Worcester. If you can't find Vidalia onions any sweet onion will do. Make more than you think you need! This recipe can easily be doubles or tripled.

Recipe #104295

I got this recipe from Gail's Recipe Swap, posted by Michelle in CA. It's a wonderful chicken salad similar to Whole Foods Sonoma Chicken Salad.

Recipe #91985

A versatile and tasty veggie salad to help cool those hot summer days! Prep time is chilling time in the fridge.

Recipe #68503

Remember the layered taco dip everybody loves? Well, here's a Mediterranean version for you! Very, very tasty! Prep time includes chilling. This dip took a bit of work... I first posted it at Gail's way back in the 90s, I think.
