    A fabulous summer meal, marinade the meat and make the dressing the night before then throw dinner together FAST. Excellent for casual dinner parties and dieters. I've had this mouth-watering salad at a couple of different Thai restaurants, I was unable to find a recipe so I combined several to make my own. This salad is very spicy yet the bursts of freshness from the lime and mint make it a celebration for the taste buds. It's extremely addictive and very healthy, no oil!

    Recipe #89570

    The tomatoes give this dish some flare and the spinach adds color and nutrition. Posted here to be easy to find from Cover & Bake by America's Test Kitchen.

    Recipe #391508

    From Cook's Illustrated 'Cover and Bake' cookbook, but I found it on Salt Lake City Desert News website --Sounds good. I know the original recipe calls for from scratch polenta, but this sounds easier. Not sure about cooking time.

    Recipe #364210

    This is the best lasagna ever!! The noodles are so nice and thin and there is NO PREBOILING!! I will never purchase any other lasagna other than Barilla. I've been making this now for 3 years and everyone agrees--the recipe makes the very best! The instructions are right on the back of the lasagna box. I usually make multiple batches and freeze them. Its a great housewarming or "new baby" meal for a friend!

    Recipe #80435

    From Delicious magazine! Serve on jasmine rice.

    Recipe #174520

    Do not substitute the kochujang or korean red pepper flakes.

    Recipe #29690

    New to slow cooking, I recently came across this recipe while perusing a cookbook from Mom's collection. Though I have not tried this yet, I'm keeping it here safe for when the time comes. I'm guessing that the honey mustard can be replaced with a combination of equal parts dijon mustard and honey.

    Recipe #201869

    Tender chunks of beef simmered in a fragrant & fruity broth enriched with honey - a traditional Moroccan tagine at it's best! I cook mine in a traditional tagine & an electric tagine; but I realise that not everyone has one, so I have also tested this out in my crock pot; it works REALLY well and is better when cooking larger quantities. The meat becomes meltingly tender and the fruity & spicy smell transports you immediately to Morocco........on a magic carpet maybe?? Yes, I am waxing lyrical I know - but this tagine is a real winner. It's not particularly seasonal, but I do think that the colder autumn & winter months are a good time to indulge in this North African comfort dish!

    Recipe #191946

    You can also make this recipe using a 5-6 pound turkey breast, directions on cooking stated below. If you like lots of glaze then double the molasses/apricot jam mixture amount. Cooking time is for ham and the servings are only estimated.

    Recipe #192571

    Wish I could remember where I picked up this recipe [over 30 years ago], but I can't! In spite of the detailed directions, it is easy to make & great-tasting, to boot! And, I'm one of those who can thoroughly enjoy a simple cheese & sauce pizza! Preparation time does not include the 2 hours it takes for the dough to rise.

    Recipe #284288

    Pot au Feu is French for “pot on the fire”. In other words, a stew or stock pot which is left cooking over the fire. In previous times, it may simply have been a cooking pot which was left over the fire, into which was thrown whatever food and scraps happened to be available. Often the meat was either scraps, or relatively poor cuts which needed a long time to cook in order to be tender. In historical terms, it was a dish for relatively poor people. Today in France, you can buy “pot au feu” meat. Expect this to be meat which reflects the historical background of this dish: relatively inexpensive and inferior cuts, which will soften with long slow cooking. While such meat is quite adequate for a Pot au Feu, feel free to use better cuts if you wish. As a Pot au Feu is historically a stew-like dish of whatever meat and vegetables were available, there are no absolute guidelines about what it should contain. However, in general it will contain beef, some bones (such as ox-tail), vegetables (such as potatoes, carrots, onions, leeks, turnips) and herbs.

    Recipe #231465

    I love cherries and pork together so plan on making this one soon!

    Recipe #217061

    A quick curry-almost a stir fry. No time allowed for the 1 hour marinading.

    Recipe #222296

    A lighter version of the original. Be sure that the cutlets are even thickness so they cook evenly. This recipe does not call for cheese, which lets the wonderful fresh sage flavor stand through. Adapted from Cooks Illustrated.

    Recipe #290368

    This is a tasty version of the French classic. The sauce is smooth & creamy with a mild earthiness. I was very impressed. I found the recipe in a group of Alsatian recipes in Gourmet March 2008.

    Recipe #288478

    Thumbs up & awesome is how my husband described this stew. I served with steamed brown rice, but tortillas or tortilla chips would be good as well. You can vary the amount of spiciness by adjusting the amount of chipotle chile you add. Put the chicken broth and can of tomatoes in the fridge overnight to prevent the chicken from overcooking and getting dry (or reduce cook time). Adapted slightly from Cook's Illustrated Best Make Ahead Recipes.

    Recipe #286545

    This is quite possibly the best beef stew I have ever had. Flavorful, thick broth with perfectly done vegetables and melt in your mouth meat. This is from Cook's Illustrated Make Ahead Cookbook. I adapted the recipe slightly, and added a turnip. I used a large oval slow cooker, and it was filled to the brim at the start of cooking, so if using a round cooker I would decrease the veggies slightly.

    Recipe #286570

    This is a great recipe for a small dinner party. The pan sauce is delicious over garlic cheese mashed potatoes or recipe #247050. This is probably my husband's favorite dish, at least it is the one he requests the most. As written the sauce can be spicy (depending on the freshness and type of cayenne you have), so if you are not a fan of spicy food I would 1/2 the cayenne.

    Recipe #246262

    The flavor on these ribs is slightly sweet, slightly spicy, and the meat melts in your mouth. Definitely easier than the traditional method of hours long attended cooking. These can be served as an appetizer/party dish (would serve 6) or as an entree (would serve 4). From Secrets of slow cooking.
