    I wanted gyro meat that tasted like the kind in the Greek restaurants. I wound up combining ingredients from 3 different recipes and was amazed at the awesome result! It smelled so good even before it hit the grill.The "easy" part is that you can just throw this on the grill, broil, bake or pan fry it. It's also easy because I buy the Tzatziki sauce, Quinoa tabouli, spanikopita appetizers and hummus at Costco and I have a ready-made meal for my family or a larger crowd. I also serve with split Pita breads and we make our own gyros with sliced garden tomato and sweet onion.

    Recipe #516397

    This is my lazy version of bruschetta: all the flavor but less work. Fresh roma tomatoes are best but I often use canned diced (fire roasted) ones in the winter months. I like to make this in advance so that the flavors blend. Best if served at room temperature.

    Recipe #498659

    I found this on the Food Network website and it was just what I was looking for: a flexible quiche recipe that doesn't have a crust. The original recipe calls to add the solid ingredients to the top of the quiche mixture in the pan, but there's no real reason why to do this, unless you think it's easier (I mixed it all together in a bowl and spooned it in). I have listed specific ingredients, but you are more than able to change those up to your taste. I prep/chop all the ingredients the night before if I'm making them for breakfast (I even saute the veggies in advance). The mini quiches keep really well and are good little snacks even when cold. They make a nice presentation when arranged on a plate. Inexpensive, healthy, easy and fast - that's what I like about this recipe!

    Recipe #493190

    I usually make this when I have roasted chicken leftover. You can probably substitute any leftover veggies instead of the broccoli that your family would eat. The proportions are an estimate, as I cook for 6 big eaters and I adjust this recipe according to how much chicken and broccoli I have to put in it, so take the ingredient measurements with a grain of salt. I like less sauce but some people like more. I usually prep the chicken and broccoli in the morning so that everything is ready to throw together right before dinner. This meal is easy on the wallet and your schedule.

    Recipe #491642

    I got this recipe years ago from Byerly's grocery store in MN when they were having a promo on Mahon cheese (a spanish cheese). If you can't get Mahon, you can use manchego or a mild provolone (or any semi-soft cheese). This salad is fresh and pretty, and I serve it at Christmas (or Thanksgiving) because of its light, fruity flavor and beautiful color. Goes perfect with turkey or ham. You can buy a small container of the macadamia nuts already toasted (so less work!) It's easy, not too expensive, the ingredients aren't too exotic and you can make the dressing ahead of time. Best to put the salad together right before serving.

    Recipe #491257

    Wild duck has a "liver-y" flavor and look, which I do not like. However, my husband is a duck hunter so I had to figure out what to do with his catch. I came up with this recipe years ago and make it as an appetizer on Thanksgiving or Christmas. The marinade takes care of the gamey flavor, so even I enjoy eating these tasty little treats. My husband and 3 boys always gobble these down in one sitting. It's great finger food. You can adjust the marinade by tasting it before putting the duck in it. Make sure you inspect the duck for BBs! This recipe requires marination overnight.

    Recipe #491087

    I live on a lake where the Native Americans used to harvest the rice. This recipe is excellent as a side dish during the holidays and makes a wonderful stuffing for turkey, chicken or cornish game hens. Also good with wild game.

    Recipe #491084

    My step-mom-in-law made these broiled, open-faced sandwiches once and although I had never eaten deviled ham before, nor had I ever had any desire to, they were yummy. It's easy enough and good enough to impress company for a lunch or brunch. Be creative with variations of ingredients and toppings. Mmm!

    Recipe #447335

    My (picky eater) son made this in his high school freshman Foods I class, hence the recipe name. He loved it and made it for us the other night. We loved it, too. There are other Szechuan Chicken recipes posted on 'zaar which I read through, and, based on their reviews I think the difference is the order in which you cook the ingredients and the amount of sauce you make. So instead of posting lengthly reviews to give suggestions on how to fix that, I figured it might be easier to just post this recipe. There are no major vegetables listed in the ingredients -- that's because it's up to you to add whatever you like! Consider this a base recipe. We added broccoli rappini and it was great. Other suggestions: broccoli florets, shredded carrots, mushrooms, bell peppers, etc. and top with crushed peanuts or cashews.

    Recipe #421948

    Although I found this recipe in a Food Network magazine, the flavor is spot-on for the Kafta burgers served at our favorite Lebanese restaurant. I get the impression that the Kefta spelling is Moroccan and the Kafta spelling is Lebanese. I made these for a Middle Eastern-ish theme night at our home. They were a big hit!. Hint: best grilled and served with pita instead of hamburger buns, and tsaziki sauce instead of ketchup (I know, that's Greek, but it still compliments it so well). We enjoyed this meal with a salad of kalamata olives, tomatoes, feta and cucumber with a little oregano and some olive oil (optional splash of lemon juice but not too much if you like), tabouli, roasted red-pepper hummus with plain baked pita chips, and couscous pilaf. It was a healthy feast!

    Recipe #410799

    My mom clipped this out of some magazine and even though I'm not a huge green pepper fan, I really loved this recipe. It's uncomplicated and very satisfying. One more excuse to use my rice cooker which I now can't live without. I am tripling the sauce because when I made it, it wasn't nearly enough.

    Recipe #410688

    My mom found this simple recipe in a magazine but I don't know which one. It was easy and yummy and my usually picky boys devoured the pork tenderloin I made with it - no leftovers! Using honey-mustard makes the difference.

    Recipe #363983

    My southern Italian family would eat platters of this, especially to accompany fish (like boiled shrimp or broiled sea fish). You can eat all you want and never feel guilty, just feel healthy! The buds should not be yellow or the rapini is too old. Nor should it be the least bit wilted. It keeps well in the fridge, and I make giant batches and eat it with my lunch as my side salad. It shouldn't be stringy when cooked, but it should be somewhat bitter, and that's what we LOVE ;-)

    Recipe #353693

    Don't know where my mom got this recipe but we love it. It's from scratch and doesn't use any cream-of-whatever soup, but it's well worth the small extra effort. You can cook the meat/veggie mixture in advance for convenience. It's a people-pleasing meal for a cold winter's day.

    Recipe #353686

    I've used the box mix for years but really longed for a more moist muffin (but not as wet as spoon bread). Last night I added in some sour cream and some honey to the box mix, and then just threw in fresh corn kernels from a lone leftover ear and leftover chipotle pepper I had from a previous recipe -- and it came out moist and sweet and tasty! You can add your own "enhancements", like diced red bell pepper or bacon, etc.

    Recipe #302430

    I found this recipe on the internet and only made it because I thought my DH would like it (I don't care that much for coconut in my main meal, or so I thought!). It turns out we all loved it, even my kids. It came out nice and crunchy and the sauce keeps it fresh and light tasting. I used a pre-mixed Creole spice that was frankly too salty (and I really love salt), so if I had to do it over again, I'd make my own mixture. I think any apricot dipping sauce with an Asian flair would complement this dish.

    Recipe #283536

    I like to think of this as "holiday" corn pudding, as it is more than just corn in a's colorful and very yummy. Like the title suggests, it is from an older WS cookbook. It contains cayenne pepper, so it has a little heat to it...just lessen that amount and use mild paprika, not hot.

    Recipe #273613

    The base of this recipe comes from an old GH cookbook. I've added other ingredients for presentation (color) and as a trick to sneak more veggies into my kids' food. I use Kirkland (Costco brand) canned salmon, but you can use any other kind you like. Chopping the ingredients into tiny pieces helps keep the patties together and helps make the vegetables less objectionable to kids. Also, you may choose to remove the bones from the salmon when you drain it, however it is a good source of calcium and my kids never notice it. This can be eaten on a bun with fresh tomato, romaine and the sauce.

    Recipe #255962

    I have never liked cauliflower unless it was drowning in processed cheese sauce - and even then I didn't like it much). HOWEVER...I found this Kraft recipe and it's so easy, pretty and - yes - tasty! My kids scarfed it down! Make sure to double the sauce/cheese portion. The bright orange of the cheddar cheese creates a very nice presentation for company and holidays. The ratio of mayo-to-mustard is a suggestion, so start with the mayo and add a little of the Dijon, mix and taste until it tastes the way you prefer. And you can sub yellow mustard if your kids like it better. Whatever gets them to eat cauliflower!

    Recipe #253141

    This is a Williams-Sonoma recipe that I usually make in the summer. Very flavorful and healthy. If you love garlic, this recipe is for you! Don't let the long ingredient list fool you, it's mostly just herbs. I don't like mint or oregano much, so I use less than called for. You can also substitute navy, pinto, black, borlotti or kidney beans for the chickpeas (garbanzo beans). Adjust the amount of garlic to your taste if you wish and enjoy!
