From a local newspaper comes this recipe submitted by Peter Quaglia of Stover MO, & it makes for a low-salt chicken dish.

This is an old family favorite. I have added a little heat to it with the pepper flakes. Fried onions are also a nice option to make it a little special. Try it with a little Thousand Island Dressing. Cheddar cheese is fine but Cheez Whiz does the trick!

Recipe #215911

Yet another fantastic recipe published in the Toronto Star. It comes from Eat, Drink & Be Vegan: Everyday Vegan Recipes Worth Celebrating by B.C. author Dreena Burton. The potatoes may be served as is or with your favourite toppings; i.e. sour cream)

Recipe #294371

Posted by request, from the "Mrs. Fields Best Cookie Book Ever" cookbook.

Recipe #105751

This is a simplified version of a Swedish potato recipe. I modified it from a recipe in the book called "Potatoes". The flavor is a little unusual but in a really good way. Fresh bay leaves work best in this recipe but dry leaves are just fine. You'll need 2 wooden chopsticks, not from your good set.

This is great! I found this on allrecipes.com and it was submitted by Holly. It is so easy and tastes like take-out!

Recipe #58896

These potato croquettes, originally of European origin, have been enthusiastically adopted by the Japanese, and are readily found in shops and restaurants in Tokyo. Serve with a drizzle of Tonkatsu sauce, on a bed of shredded cabbage. For ease of preparation, assemble all the ingredients before beginning. You can make your own Tonkatsu sauce (a recipe follows, which can be doubled if you wish) or buy some commercially made. The Bull-Dog brand" (burudoku tonkatsu soosu) is popular in Japan. Preparation time does not include chilling time.

Recipe #78082

In the past most chicken karaage (Japanese style fried chicken) recipes were marinated chicken pieces which were deep fried and simply served. Now in Japan, fried chicken karaage recipes often come with different sauces or relishes. One of my favorite is onion sauce, but this one is equally good. If difficult to get leg sections, boneless thighs work very well too. Make several small cuts (not skin side) to flatten the thighs so they lay flatter.

Recipe #205621

This is a lovely Lebanese bread topped with zaatar spice mix, eaten any time of the day.. or night!

This is very similar to a dish I enjoy at a fabulous Toronto restaurant, Jerusalem -- but the restaurant's version doesn't use raw garlic. I love the taste of this dish. If you're the only eggplant lover in your household (like I am), use a smaller eggplant, cut the sauce ingredients in half, and enjoy this yourself.

Recipe #42280

This recipe first appeared as part of a "meatless week-night meal" in the November, 2003 Bon Appetit. Originally posted by Mean Chef. Vegans can omit the yogurt.

Recipe #78824

Pissaladiere is basically an onion pizza. You may use Recipe #256080 for the dough. It's important not to change this recipe much, I wanted to use less olive oil (but I didn't) but it was needed to make the pizza moist on top and I wanted to leave the sugar out (but I didn't) but it was needed to make the onions sweeter. This recipe came from Marie Claire Zest by Michele Cranston.

Recipe #278932

Yes, I know, lots of pot roast recipes here, but I tell you this is my all time favorite. Even better then the ones that you dump all of the pre packaged gravy mixes and salad dressings in the pot. Homemade, just like a good mid-western mom meant it to be!

I adapted the char siu recipe from my friend Mitch's late Great Uncle Kennie's recipe. Making these dim sum buns does take a bit of time, especially if you make the meat yourself, but the results are wonderful! If you have an Asian deli that sells char siu (Chinese BBQ pork), that will save you time. Times assume meat is pre-bought or made ahead of time. Thanks to Pneuma for putting this recipe in her best of 2008 cookbook!

Recipe #284255

OMG this is so simple to make but for lovers of coffee & chocolate this is pure heaven. Give it a go!

Recipe #283430

Great with company or when you need to indulge in something a little special.

Recipe #210796

A warm summer evening in the garden, a nice meal...then a glass of this.....

Recipe #126732

Thanks Paula Deen (FoodTV) for the best fried chicken I have ever made! It has a nice, savory flavor and a coating that has just the right amount of crispiness. It was a good thing I had an extra cut-up chicken in the refrigerator because my family was begging for it again the next day. Although it calls for what seems like a lot of hot pepper sauce, it isn't any spicier than Jack-In-the Box's Spicy Crispy Chicken--you can take it!! FYI I made this using 10 pounds of wings--enough of the hot sauce/egg mixture to cover, but you will need to double flour mixture if you want to do this much. I'm not saying it tastes like KFC--only that you won't be doing business with them anymore.

Recipe #108364

These are To Die For. A neighbor brought these over for the holidays and I have to tell you, they are addicting!! They are easy to make too, what more could you ask for?? The recipe does not call for it, but I add the zest of 1 lemon and also a glaze on top made with fresh lemon juice and powdered sugar.

This is the chocolate chip cookie recipe I've been using ever since I was given the recipe by a friend at work, who is an excellent baker! My kids love these cookies and request that I make them often!
