    This is an original recipe of my DH's inspired by his former Mexican co-workers when he worked in Gilroy, California (garlic capital of the world!). This recipe will scale 1 to 6 servings; this recipe serves 6, i.e., one relleno per person.

    Recipe #303080

    Based on a recipe from Lora Brody's cookbook, Pizza, Focaccia, Flat, and Filled Breads From Your Bread Machine - Perfect Every Time. She says, "Just when you thought things couldn't get better bread-wise, along comes a whole new concept: two layers of rosemary-scented dough surrounding a savory filling of oil-cured olives, sun-dried tomatoes, and cream cheese (or goat cheese if you wish). The cream cheese makes a smooth mild filling while the goat cheese has a more assertive flavor. Think of this as a pizza with hidden filling. "The focaccia dough can be made up to three days ahead, placed in a large plastic bag or in an oiled bowl and covered with plastic wrap, and refrigerated. Alternatively, the cooled baked focaccia can be wrapped in plastic and frozen for three months. Defrost the wrapped focaccia at room temperature, then warm it in a 250°F oven for fifteen minutes."

    Recipe #322511

    Based on a recipe from Madge Rosenberg’s book, The Best Bread Machine Cookbook Ever – Ethnic Breads. She says in its introduction, “You can smell lemons and oregano at sea as you come near the Greek islands that are not too stony to support growth. Oregano will grow between the cracks in rocks. This bread is comfortable with broiled or sauced fish. Toast, rub with garlic, and float in chicken or egg-lemon soup.” Measurements are for the large 1 ½ pound loaf; measurements for the small (1 pound) loaf are in parentheses.

    Recipe #428493

    This is based on a recipe from Marian Burros' cookbook, 20 Minute Menus.

    Recipe #284633

    Based on a recipe from Madge Rosenberg’s book, The Best Bread Machine Cookbook Ever – Ethnic Breads. She says in its introduction, “Because it is so assertive, this chewy bread should be sliced thin to go with salty ham or strong cheese. For a traditional Danish open-faced sandwich (smorrebrod), spread with butter, then top with thinly sliced roast beef and a dollop of prepared horseradish thinned with sour cream. Measurements are for the large 1 ½ pound loaf; measurements for the small (1 pound) loaf are in parentheses.

    Recipe #425471

    This is a great recipe based on one from Emeril Lagasse's book, Louisiana Real & Rustic. He says, "Believe it or not, this now-familiar crawfish dish was not known beyond Louisiana until the late 1940s or early 1950s when the oil boom brought an influx of outsiders to Acadiana, and in particular to Breaux Bridge, in St. Martin Parish, now home of the world-famous crawfish festival. It was in this small town on Bayou Teche, or so some food historians tell us, that crawfish etouffee originated. At the time it was unfashionable, except for Acadians, to eat mudbugs. Now just about the whole world flocks to Breaux Bridge for the rich, full flavors of etouffee. Serve it with steamed rice." Since crawfish can be difficult to find in our parts, I've occassionally substituted lobster, in which case, I cook the shells in water and use this water in place of the plain water called for in the recipe.

    Recipe #367568

    From Mayo Clinic’s Essential Heart Guide 2012. One of my photos shows wild salmon marinating; wild salmon is much better for you than farmed salmon, and I think it tastes better, too. Nutrition info: 190 calories, 11g total fat, 60 mg cholesterol, 200 mg sodium, 0 g fiber.

    Recipe #491833

    Based on a recipe from Soheila Kimberley’s cookbook, Taste of the Middle East. This is a simple peasant salad popular all over Syria and the Lebanon. Although the recipe calls for only 2 tablespoon of each herb, you can add as much as you like based on taste and availability. You may also crush the toasted crisp pita bread in your hand and sprinkle it atop the salad before serving. I find this salad very refreshing.

    Recipe #417140

    Based on a recipe from Suzanne Somers’ book, Eat Great, Lose Weight. She says “This dish is delicious hot or cold, and the vinaigrette is also good on salads or other vegetables.”

    Recipe #442938

    This is based on a recipe from The Tapas Cookbook. This serves 4 as part of a tapas meal. I haven’t yet tried this.

    Recipe #371150

    Based on a recipe from Cook’s Country magazine, October/November 2005. The intro to the recipe advises, “Don’t mix the brown sugar and butter ahead of time; it will crystallize and separate. Butternut squash can be stringy when undercooked, so if you’re not sure, err on the side of overcooking.” I’ve included instructions for cooking small winter squash, such as acorn, delicata, and sweet dumpling since they cook more quickly and require less glaze.

    Recipe #439069

    From Sunset's Cookies, cookbook. My DH thinks these are the greatest! I admit that they do make great gifts. From the intro: "Oversized cookies, often best-sellers at fund-raising events, are easy to make at home. [These...] reach a diameter of about 7 inches -- enough cookie to last all day! For variety, you can use butterscotch-flavored chips instead of chocolate."

    Recipe #328433

    This is based on a great recipe from Ken Hom's book, Quick & Easy Chinese Cooking. He says, "This is a typical Chinese dish, designed to comfort, to satisfy, and to relax the body and soul. It reheats very well (when it is perhaps even tastier), and is a meal in itself. Serve it with a favorite salad, and you will have a spendid, complete meal."

    Recipe #320146

    Based on a recipe from Guy Fieri�s book, Diners, Drive-ins and Dives: an All-American Road Trip�With Recipes! This celebrates Red Arrow Diner in Manchester, New Hampshire, a landmark diner established in 1922.

    Recipe #416373

    Based on a recipe from Ray Foley’s the Ultimate Little Martini Book containing over 1000 martini recipes.

    Recipe #429561

    This recipe is based on one of Rocco Dispirito’s from his book, Now Eat This! Diet. He says in its intro, “Who grew up eating tuna casserole? Raise your hands. That’s just about everybody. Okay, this is not your mother’s tuna casserole…nor does it use Tuna Helper. But it does taste just as wonderful – without losing any of its comfort-food flavor. I’ve wowed it up a bit with Dijon mustard, and I used whole wheat panko bread crumbs for that traditional crunchy topping. If you can’t find these particular bread crumbs, you can always toast leftover whole wheat bread and break it into crumbs with a rolling pin.” I made this the other night with French’s French Fried Onions because I was out of panko bread crumbs. We loved this dish and it has become a new staple dish for us. Per serving: 351 calories, 10g fat (5g sat / 1g mono / 0.5g poly), 64mg cholesterol, 589mg sodium, 34g carbohydrate, 6g fiber, 36g protein. This calculates to 9 WeightWatchers Points Plus value. He says you can save 31 calories per serving by omitting the peas. Before his update, the classic tuna casserole has 28 fat grams and 826 calories – thank you, Rocco! :)

    Recipe #461146

    Based on a recipe from Pam Spaude’s & Jan Owan-McMenamin, R.D.’s cookbook, One Year of Healthy, Hearty & Simple One-Dish Meals. They recommend serving this with cottage cheese (1/4 cup per person), a fresh fruit, or a glass of milk to complete the meal. My DH and I like these for lunch accompanied with fruit. Per serving: 221 calories, 15.9 mg cholesterol, 493 mg sodium, 2.8 gm saturated fat, 7 gm fat.

    Recipe #455332

    Based on a recipe from Lora Brody's cookbook, Pizza, Focaccia, Flat, and Filled Breads From Your Bread Machine -- Perfect EveryTime. In her introduction she says, "Did you see the movie? If not, rent it to eat with this version of the pizza it inspired. There's nothing like sharing a great pizza meal with Julia Roberts."!

    Recipe #353129

    Based on a recipe from Jordan Maerin’s book, Raw Foods for Busy People. Note: Jordan subscribes to the 80% raw and 100% whole and organic foods definition. On the question of “How raw is raw?” she identifies her sources: 100% Raw Plant Food Diet, Hippocrates Diet, Natural Hygiene, Essene Diet, Macrobiotic-Raw Diet, Hunza Diet, and the Temporary Raw Diet. Jordan advises, “Keep this one handy. It makes a great marinade too.” Jordan suggests marinating cherry tomatoes or mushrooms, or any other vegetable of your choice, in the Basic Vinaigrette for three hours at room temperature, stirring often, or overnight in the refrigerator, stirring occasionally, to enjoy as a salad garnish, or as munchies at any time of day.

    Recipe #368677

    This is adapted from a recipe on Frank's RedHot website. These are spicy hot! I recommend recipe #344853 as a condiment!
