Call me crazy but after a marathon of cooking which traveled the globe, I did it again when the call came six months later. Don't let NCMS or ~Leslie~ bat their eyes at you, it's lethal. With close to 250 recipes made in the two contests, I've decided create a cookbooks with the best of each. (I also have cookbooks of everything tried in both.)
This is a delicous salad that is great for lunch or dinner. I serve it with cheesy garlic bread and a glass of wine for a delicious meal.
You can use the dressing listed, or your favourite, but I recommend a tangy dressing to offset the sweetness of the pineapple.
Hope you enjoy!
This is another recipe that my sister and I came up with for our home study group. The tartness of the dressing and the sweetness of the fruit make a wonderful combination. We found, for us anyway, that by adding a little Miracle Whip to the dressing we could cut down on the amount of sugar.
Hearty one dish meal. I always serve it with some crusty, hot fresh breadto get the last of the juices! This is so yummy I wish I could take total credit for it but I revised it slightly from The Pampered Chef's Stoneware Sensations Cookbook. Hope you enjoy it as much as we do! NOTE: Per request I revised this from my original post to reduce fat and calories. Please let me know if you like the new version as much as the old. The potatoes will cook much faster if you microwave them for a few minutes before placing them in the pan with the rest of the veggies.
Another take on this favorite Hanukkah tradition. This recipe is posted for the World Tour 2005 RecipeZaar event. I haven't had a chance to try these yet, but know I will enjoy them.

This recipe has been lurking in my filing system forever as a cutting from some magazine or other! It looks like there are a lot of ingredients, but there’s nothing unusual to find. The chocolate gives this recipe authenticity. Posted for Zaar World Tour 2005.
Posted for Zaar World Tour 2005. Try whole wheat couscous for nutritional boost. Can be used to top polenta or pasta. Quick and easy and very low-fat. Saffron is very good but very expensive and some grocery stores only sell it from behind a counter. From Vegetarian Times Cooks Mediterranean. Have not made this yet.
Fantastic dish for the holidays or any day! Really homey and good! Great way to sneak different veggies into picky eaters diets! Any root veggies can be used just use the same measurements provided here. I usually leave out the parsnips since my family refuses to eat them and use an extra potato and an extra carrot. Try this with your favorite combo of root veggies!
Posted for Zaar's World Tour 2005- would fit into Scan and Canadian regions as there is alot of Scandinavian influence in the Canadian cuisine.
This has to be just about my favourite Indian dish to make, and I make it a lot! It's also one of the few recipes that I make exactly as written! I sometimes vary the ingredients by substituting the potatoes with carrots and sweet potatoes (but then of course it's not Rasadar aloo anymore!), or by adding extra tomatoes. You may wish to use less oil, but the spice mix is perfect (and I never change it). If you've never used asafoetida before, don't be put off by the slightly strange smell; the results are worth it. This recipe comes from "The Complete Indian Cookbook", edited by Meera Budhwar and I'm posting the ingredients specified. You can easily scale the quantities up but I think this serves 2 as a main dish or 4 as a side dish.
Posted for Zaar World Tour 2005. It's from a special edition of Saveur, The Best of Tex-Mex Cooking. They recommend you use 2 cups dried navy beans soaked overnight, but I've altered the recipe and cooking time for canned. I also halved the amount of oil. When I tried this it made a rather soupy stew; if you prefer your stews drier, I suggest cutting back on the broth, and add more if it gets too dry.
