    Made this 2night for dinner. Everyone loved them. Great after working in the garden all day. DH and the oldest DD doesn't like hummus so I put cream cheese in theirs and they loved it. DH said its something he'd pay for in a restaurant. He also said it went well with his beer. The youngest DD and I love hummus so I made them as posted below for us. DH also thought a good honey mustard would be nice. I'm just going to put ingredients for one sandwich. You can figure out the rest :-) They are all guesses anyway.

    I LOVE coffee milk. My SIL is from RI and Autocrat coffee syrup was a favor in a gift basket she left in our room at her and my brother's wedding. I've been hooked ever since. Just recently I found that I love vanilla soy milk. One morning there wasn't enough cow's milk for both me and the kids so I tried the syrup in the soy stuff. Its a wonderful combination, better than the original. Its also a great bonus that I find the soy milk to be very filling and therefore diet friendly. Even if you aren't crazy about soy milk, get a small jug and give this a try.

    I love this smoothy for breakfast. It's yummy, sweet and filling. The serving size on my container of tofu was 1/5 of the block. I looked up serving sizes and found that a serving of tofu is 1/4 cup. I usually just cut the block into 5 parts without measuring.

    Recipe #276221

    Ok, so I stink at naming recipes but this is still good. All ingredients are usually in my pantry or easy to find. Toss in a little granola or nuts if you want to make it more substantial or for a little crunch. I am sure other dried fruit would be just as good but I chose this combo for its sweet/tart flavors. Adjust the amounts to your preference.

    I love this recipe and it goes very well with Latkes and applesauce for a yummy Hanukkah meal. The original recipe that I posted here is for duck but I have made this with a roaster chicken with wonderful results. From New Jewish Cooking by Elizabeth Wolf Cohen.

    Recipe #270007

    This is a recipe I got off the Italian food guide, I think. The note at the top of the recipe claims it is from Ricette di Osterie e Ristoranti della Valle D'Aosta. Serve with polenta, boiled potatoes, potato gnocchi or simply some egg noodles. The spice measurments are a guess. The recipe called for a "pinch" of this or that. Use your best judgement, I put 1/8 tsp because I found a website that suggested a pinch = 1/8 tsp. I think I use a little more.

    Recipe #268908

    From the internet. never used the lard in this recipe but do go over board with the pancetta. I usually get 1/4 lb.

    Recipe #268858

    This is a great fall salad. So easy and I always get recipe requests. I think the original was from Alton Brown, but I changed a few things. This is great for Thanksgiving or other harvest party. It also travels well for a fall picnic or pot luck. The recipe calls for golden raisins but I like the black ones. I think the contrast is nicer too. Add some left over grilled chicken for a great meal. I always eat the leftover (if there is any) from Thanksgiving with left over turkey mixed in for lunch the next day. Cooking time is chill time.

    I swear its good. I eat it at least once a week and have to stop myself from eating a second one. They are sooooo good. My kids like it with ritz cracker rather than bread. Amounts are approximate, if you want more or less of anything, do it. I just posted a typical serving size of each item, I never measure.

    From Simply Tuscan by Pino Luongo. This is found in the sectioon of the book called Summer: Dinner for Children and their Friends. Other types of berries work in this as well or use a mixture.

    Recipe #248691

    From the book The Italian Country Table by Lynne Rossetto Kasper. This is a wonderful recipe for any time of year. Serve it as part of a buffet, a light lunch or dinner. It also travles well for a picnic. Leftovers can be pureed or mashed with some more olive oil to top bruschetta or dip with veggies. The book (and I) suggest a light Chianti to go with this. The recipe calls for Cacciatora salami, which is wonderful if you can get it, its my favorite, but any small, hard salami will do. The actual recipe calls for 1/2 or 2.5 oz salami. I've never measured, I use what I like. You can also use a can of olive oil packed tuna, drained and you have another classic salad. For the beans the book says "They're called corona, bianco di Spagna or bianco grande in Italian and soisson in French...An american organic pinto bean makes and excellent replacement." I have used great northern as well. A good vidalia onion is a great sub for the red and I have also used green... Cooking times are just a guess. Have fun and enjoy!

    Recipe #248689

    This is true comfort food. I love this with some good bread. Make it with homemade broth if you can. Meat broth can be chicken, beef a combination or whatever type of meat you want. It probably would be good with vegetable broth too. I usually save chicken wings (since we usually don't eat them anyway)in a freezer bag until I need to make a stock. I also save uncooked bones and misc poultry and beef parts in the freezer for the same use. I then take out as much as I need and cook the stock the night before I intend to use it. This soup should be dense but soupy. Have extra broth on hand in case it gets too thick on you.

    Recipe #200431

    This is a lovely dish with a bit of sweet from the raisins. You can use any shape pasta you like but I find that small shells, penne, or spirals make a good substitute for the orcchiette if need be. I also like this with whole wheat pasta. Don't let the anchovies scare you. If you just can't stand it, I've left them out b4 and it was still good but the anchovies are a nice balance to the sweet raisins. The origional recipe says 1/4 cup raisins so I am putting that, but we love raisins and I typically add a whole cup.

    This is a combination of a few recipes I found online. I actually made two very big burgers out of this and grilled them but the origional recipes said this makes 6. There are supose to be smaller than your average restaurant hamburger. I did not take into account the time it sits in the fridge. So please account for this when you make it yourself.

    Recipe #173994

    Found this recipe in a few places on line. The peas are actually red kidney beans. This suggests soaking overnight but if you look on the bag of beans you'll find a quicker meathod that I usually use. I thought this looked good (anything with coconut milk looks good to me) so I decided to post it even tho I have not tried it yet. The actuall recipe did not suggest the size of the coconut milk can and 'zaar needs a can size. I think the ones I get are 13 oz +/- so this is the amount I gave. Use what you have. The cook time includes prep time since I wasn't sure and this is the total time one of the websites gave.

    This is great if you have a head of lettuce that you have to use right away. Even if you don't, its still a great side dish to any asian meal. Simple to make, with common ingredients, its a keeper for sure. Try different lettuce varieties, I used romane tonight since its what was on hand. I also didn't have sesamee oil tonight so I used walnut oil and it was still a winner. I like to toss in some toasted sesame seeds and if I have them on hand a green onion, chopped, is nice to add with the lettuce. As you can see, this recipe leaves a huge opening for your own additions and variations.

    Another open faced sandwich. The idea for this came from Bangers and Mash, one of DH favorite meals. Its too hot to make it durring the summer tho, so I thought this would cure the craving, at least until autumn. I got 6 melts out of this but felt that I stretched the sausage meat too far so I am suggesting that this makes 4. If your bread is small or if you need to stretch it, you can get 6 out of these. I used Jimmy Dean sausage, the kind you get in the tubular shaped package near the breakfast meats since I was shopping on a budget, but use whatever type you like best. I made these with Dijon mustard but we also thought Colmans mustard would be a nice touch. Use your favorite or whatever you have on hand. I served these with fries.

    Found in the Williams Sonoma catalog. I wanted to place it here for safe keeping until I get a chance to try it. It sounds very good. Serve with potato chips or cut up veggies. Cook time is the chill time. The prep time is a guess.

    You can use either the broccolini or broccoli crowns. We also thought asparagus would be nice with this. If you have it, you can use a comercial dijon/mayo mixture. Otherwise, its easy enough to mix them yourself. I got 6 open faced sandwiches out of this on homemade rye bread. Our bread might not be sized the same as store bought so this may make a difference in the serving size. I don't think I could have gotten more out of it but I could have piled more of the broccolini on the bread and made 4, just so you know. I hope you like these. We had them for dinner with Bacon, Avocado & Tomato Salad recipe #161428, this would also make a nice lunch, especially for company.

    Recipe #171387

    What could be better in the summer time? Cook time is chill time.
