This recipe was adapted from a poster on another board, Sandi in Hawaii, and we love it. When you are unable to have real sushi, this is a tasty substitution. It is great for a party as everyone can just help themselves. Check out my Lazy Woman California Roll. Don't forget the wasabi!

This is adapted from a recipe by Michelle in CA, from another board. It is easy to put together even if the list of ingredients looks long. You can double the recipe and freeze half of it. If you do that, don't sprinkle the sesame seeds or green onions on until you are ready to serve it. It can be reheated in the crock pot or thawed overnight and reheated in the oven or stovetop.
This is an wonderful salad for a potluck or picnic. It is gorgeous to look at and delicious to taste. It is very forgiving, add or adjust ingredients or seasonings as you desire. You might want to add a tad more vinegar depending on how tart you like your salads. I adapted this salad from a cous cous recipe from Silvia Lehrer/and Charlie from another site. You could add some cooked shrimp to this salad to make it a little more substantial.
This soup is a variation of my Irish mother's potato soup. I won third prize in the San Diego Union's Potato Recipe Contest.
I love the combination of rosemary and garlic in this soup. I use an immersion blender and lightly puree the soup, rather than putting it in my traditional blender...much much safer!
This wonderful soup recipe, is from my favorite grocery store, located in Minneapolis, MN. I make it using wild rice that has been harvested by hand, thus supporting the Native American's who grow it in Northern MN. There really is a difference.
I love Herbes de Provence. They have such a wonderful distinctive flavor. I have tried almost every brand, and my absolute favorite is the Herbes de Provence sold by Williams Sonoma, in the little clay crocks. It has such a great flavor with an emphasis on lavender. If you want to make this vegetarian, omit the prosciutto, and use vegetable broth or water instead of the chicken broth. Add a little smoked paprika for the prosciutto's smokiness.
This super easy salad is so rich. I like to serve this with a nice gazpacho, and crunchy baguette for an easy summer meal, when it is too hot out to heat up the kitchen. I found this recipe at Saveur and sold it at my Farmer's Market. Delish!
