    This is from Moosewood New Classics - a great blend of textures. Great when you top the whole thing with plain yogurt.

    Recipe #211141

    This is a colorful and mildly spicy way of cooking pork chops from Cooking Light Classics. You can make it spicier by coating the pork chops in Cajun seasoning before cooking. This is also good made with chicken.

    Recipe #211070

    This is a fun meal from Moosewood's Lowfat Favorites. The cookbook says this makes a lower fat substitute for felafel (which I love) - I don't know about replacing felafel, but these are good for their own sake. I added a bit more spice to the mix than the recipe called for - more cumin and a touch of cayenne - and next time I'll probably add even more - so feel free to season them however your family will like it best! Prep time does not include cooking brown rice.

    Recipe #210045

    My Moosewood Cookbook pretty much falls open to the page with this recipe. These are cheesy and delicious. It's a bit of work if you make your own dough, but they always work out great (I have been known to use frozen bread dough). Prep time includes rising time.

    Recipe #209945

    This is a lovely soup from The Moosewood New Classics. I made it pretty much as written, but I think it has possibilities for other additions - maybe some carrots, or some ham or bacon - but it's very nice as is.

    Recipe #209016

    This is a delicious bread from Bernard Clayton's Complete Book of Breads. It is moist, sweet and cinnamon-y enough to cause our pastor's family to fight over who got to finish it off at breakfast when I gave them a loaf! Preparation time includes rising.

    Recipe #208641

    I found this in Bernard Clayton's Cooking Across America. I've had this cookbook for years and it's the first thing I've made from it! The original name of the dish is "Pasta Prima Peschke", named for a chef on a ranch in Wyoming who made it up, but that's not very descriptive, so I changed it. I also changed some of the amounts - I only used half of the butter and bacon and chicken called for in the original and it was plenty.

    Recipe #208535

    A flavorful frittata from the Moosewood New Classics.

    Recipe #208072

    This is a lovely, spicey way to prepare small new potatoes from Madhur Jaffrey's Quick and Easy Indian Cooking.

    Recipe #207685

    This is a simple, hearty stew adapted from the More with Less Cookbook. The crushed red pepper is my own addition, and of course it's optional if you don't like that sort of thing - but I like it to have a little zip.

    Recipe #207305

    This is an interesting take on quesadillas, adapted from Great Good Food by Julee Rosso. The recipe calls for these to be baked in the oven rather than done in a skillet. When we had them they were a bit flimsy for eating by hand - but that might be because I used an insulated baking sheet - they may benefit from browning on the bottom a bit. The recipe lists fresh herbs, but I used dried (teaspoons instead of tablespoons) and they were delicious.

    Recipe #207003

    My husband is not a big fan of cake, so for his birthday each year, I make cream puffs for him. He loves these so much, I have to make sure he only eats one or two at a time so he doesn't make himself sick! There are several cream puff recipes out there, but this vanilla pastry cream is a bit different from the others and it's really wonderful. Prep time does not include 2 hours chilling of pastry cream. From the Good Housekeeping Illustrated Cookbook.

    Recipe #203416

    Another chili mac recipe - this one is from Cooking Light's Best of 10 Years. It was an instant hit with everyone in my family.

    Recipe #203380

    This recipe is more about the technique than the ingredients. I've added a bit more description since the first review. Making biscuits in a skillet rather than the oven is something I picked up from Joy of Cooking. It's a great alternative when you just don't want to heat up the kitchen by turning on the oven. Any rolled biscuit dough will do. NOTE: The texture may be a bit different when the biscuits are made on the stovetop, sometimes mine are a bit more dense than when baked, but they taste really good. I'm including the buttermilk biscuit recipe from Joy of Cooking, which is also wonderful and tender when rolled and baked. Yield is approximate, depending on the recipe you end up using.

    Recipe #203376

    This naan is from the New Vegetarian Epicure. With just four ingredients and no yeast, it is simple to mix up, but it is so soft and flavorful I figured I'd add it to the many recipes already posted. Prep time does not include 1 hour of "resting."

    Recipe #203261

    This is a tasty, filling vegetarian main dish from The Moosewood Cookbook. This makes a lot, so you may want to try half if cooking for a small family.

    Recipe #199319

    I know there are several samosa recipes out there, but our family just loves these. They are totally worth the time it takes to make them. From The Moosewood Cookbook. Number of servings is approximate - it's plenty for 4 or 5 people. Note: I find I often have more filling than pastry, but I have also found that the filling freezes fine if you want to save it for another batch - or you can just mix up some more dough and eat it all! I've used leftover piecrust in a pinch and just thrown them in the oven to brown rather than frying and they came out just fine.

    Recipe #199318

    I realize there are lots of minestrone recipes out there. Here's another one. This one is meatless and can easily be made completely vegetarian by using vegetable stock. I like to splash in a bit of wine when I make this. Adapted from Cook It Light: Pasta, Rice and Beans.

    Recipe #199315

    This is a flavorful chicken stew from Cook it Light: Pasta, Rice and Beans. Note the wide range on the amount of stock to be used. The original recipe called for 1/2 cup chicken stock - I ended up using 2 cans (about 4 cups). Maybe my tomatoes weren't juicy enough. Anyway, to cook the noodles in the stew, it needed more than 1/2 cup of stock - cooking the noodles separately would change the amount of stock needed. When I made this, I realized I was out of peas and put in corn, which worked fine, but peas would have been good. I'm sure other vegetables would substitute nicely as well.

    Recipe #199309

    From Bon Appetit, many moons ago. Beautiful and delicious.
