From The Irish Pub cookbook, this delicious variation on traditional brown soda bread is from Durty Nelly's pub-restaurant in the village of Bunratty, County Clare. It's easy to make and slices nicely, but note it's not like American bread you're used to but an Irish style bread with a slight "bitter" taste.

This is from the Grit Cookbook, featuring recipes from a famous vegetarian restaurant in Athens, Georgia. They slice through the center of each square and toast it, or butter and brown it in the skillet. You can add other veggies for additional color -- such as half a cup of chopped green onions!
A nice fitness lunch to keep you going all day! It's tastier than you would think considering the ingredients. Chipotle lovers may prefer Recipe#124740 for the dip or the easiest way is to use prepared dip from the jar. I love Guiltless Gourmet's Spicy Black Bean Dip or Desert Pepper Trading Company's Spicy Black Bean Dip. Based on a recipe from Ellie Krieger's Healthy Appetite, this serves two as an entree or eight as an appetizer.
Something different! A delicious breakfast or dinner that pleases people who don't like French Toast because it's too sweet. This was served at the bed and breakfast at Youngberg Hill Winery in the Oregon Wine Country.
