    A nice, chewy variation on rice pilaf from "Betty Crocker's New Int'l Cookbook." Easy to make and yet a bit exotic and middle-eastern.

    My daughters call this "Noodle Rice" and we have some variation on it several times a month. I've used broken spaghetti, vermicelli, and orzo in place of the egg noodles (choose eggless pasta to be totally vegan...well, duh, you knew that!) I also usually throw in a handful of golden raisins with it and up the water just a bit to account for plumping them up - the kids eat those first! Be creative...substitute a little lemon juice for part of the water if it's going with fish, etc. A nice, reliable add-on to dinner, originally from "Betty Crocker's New Int'l Cookbook."

    I had never thought of celery as the basis of a dish until I saw this recipe in the "Betty Crocker's New Int'l Cookbook" almost 15 yrs ago. Honestly I only tried it because we were on such a tight budget that I had no other veggies in the house one night. Boy, were we surprised! We have it fairly frequently, even when we don't have the cheese on hand, and it's a great conversation piece at dinner parties because it's so unexpected, so simple, and yet so good. When I want something totally vegan, I just substitute veggie broth for the chicken bouillon.

    I got this off the back of some store-brand fettucine noodles and gave it a try. Dh said to make sure I kept the recipe! It is very rich and I usually decrease the salt and dried basil to help that a bit, and I thinned it down just a bit with milk, but otherwise it's a fancy-looking dish with very little effort.

    This has been in my recipe box so long I have no idea where it originated, but the card is so battered (literally :o) that you can tell it's a real favorite. It starts with easy packaged biscuit mix and makes a beautiful breakfast, brunch, or gift. The finished braid looks much more difficult than it is and is always well received. You can change the jam to whatever flavor you prefer (someday I want to try it with a cheese danish filling, too...mmmm!)

    This was originally from the "Moosewood Sundays" cookbook and was an instant hit around here...part coffeecake, part dessert - yummy! I've never had almonds in the house, but can vouch that it's great even without them. I've added in a bit of orange rind to the cranberry mix before too, to give it a nice zing. I have always used a Bundt pan...makes for a very pretty presentation for breakfast, brunch, tea, dessert, or gifts, especially around the winter holidays.

    I don't remember where I found this, but it's a staple around our house now. It's chewy, kind of nutty, and very filling. It's also very easy (as long as I think about it at least an hour before I need it!) It's an easy side dish as is, upgrades easily to a pilaf (see directions below), works well under meats and sauces, leftovers go great in soup, and it is even good with a little sugar, cinnamon, and cream over it for breakfast or dessert! So many possibilities with so few ingredients. ;o)

    Our favorite recipe from our favorite Syrian-Lebanese cookbook, "Foods from Biblical Lands."The actual name is Djaj ma' limoon wa za' tar, but the kids call it "Arabic Chicken" and ask for it frequently. Save the leftover cooking juices to put over rice, potatoes, etc. (Actually, we use the marinade on potatoes, zukes, green beans..whatever we have and can throw in the oven). It's one of my standard potluck dishes and always gets raves (I use smaller chunks of chicken when cooking and then layer it over a 9x13 pan of rice pilaf for an easy self-serve dish). Also works to use packages of boneless, skinless chicken breasts (be careful not to overcook!). I've even been pressed for time and not broiled it and liked it just as much, or used it as marinade for grilled chicken...hard to mess this one up!

    Yummy with all the oats and just a hint of orange; moist and not too sweet - a big favorite around our home. I suppose you should keep leftovers refrigerated in a sealed container, but don't know - we never have any left over! Based on a recipe from "Oat Cuisine." (Edited to emphasize that these are *not intended* to be super-sweet muffins. My kiddos like them without the extra sweetness and for that I am oh-so-grateful! ;o) If you are looking for a less sweet muffin, this is for you.)

    Yet another lentil recipe from my 'must-fix' list. Originally from the "Lean, Luscious, and Meatless" Cookbook. I have never used the pimentos and usually add in some rosemary and thyme. I also typically use olive oil as I prefer the richer taste in this salad. Great with a green salad and loaf of bread for a full meal or as one of a variety of offerings on a salad bar or brunch. I tend to make up a batch of it and eat from it for several days, sometimes even in pita!

    An untested recipe I found a while ago on the Puritan website. It sounds great, but nobody will eat artichokes with me so for now it's just a 'someday' recipe.

    A recipe from one of my husband's colleagues. She said she usually just uses 1 lb of meat, since that's the typical pkg size and has substituted dried oregano, basil, parsley, and mint for the fresh herbs. It was a big hit at the party. Number of meatballs depends on how big you make each one; would work as an appetizer or part of a main dish.

    I saw this in the "8 Week Cholesterol Cure" and thought it sounded good, but was skeptical of it passing the 'husband and kid test.' To my amazement, they loved it and left nary a scrap in the pot. A nice blend of sweet and savory.

    Another lentil favorite in our home, even with the kiddos! Originally from the "Lean, Luscious, and Meatless" cookbook. I use less onion and usually add in a bit of cumin and ground flax, and typically shred the carrots as they cook down more and 'disguise' a little better for the kids. Great winter night stew!

    A fun twist on the healthy oven fries we've all tried. Great with huevos rancheros, burgers, or just for a snack!

    My children actually *beg* for these, and even my vegan-suspicious parents and sister had to admit they liked them. The original recipe is from the "Lean, Lucious, & Meatless" cookbook. I usually omit the cayenne and paprika and decrease the onion (I'm the only onion-lover in the house) and add ground flax and occasionally wheat germ, whatever. We eat it in pitas, on bread, with cheese, BBQ sauce, ketchup or tahini. I even stir-fry/scrambled it once when it didn't get sticky enough to make patties and served it over rice and they wolfed it down that way. We eat it quite a bit, especially during Lent. :o) Do make sure to cook it slowly enough to get really sticky or it will be very hard to keep the patties together when you flip them. It will keep several days in the fridge, chilling until you need it (prep time does not include chilling; not completely necessary in my experience, but helpful). The patties reheat well, too.

    This is my husband's very favorite quick bread I make, a great holiday gift, and is my most-requested at parties, especially around the holidays. It originally came from the Betty Crocker Cookbook, but I usually omit the nuts (although I love pecans with the cranberries) and have added a glaze onto it, which really seemed to give it that extra little zing. When I serve it for parties or brunches, I slice it, then cut the slices in half top to bottom; people seem satified with the smaller pieces (though they often go back for more!) and it serves more that way. I always try to keep a bag of cranberries in the freezer for just this recipe.

    This salsa is great on any meat or fish

    This was originally posted by Mean Chef; I had a nearly identical recipe posted, minus only the orange glaze. I got my version off a homeschool mom email loop; you know these have to be easy to do if we can make them while drilling multiplication tables and talking about Ancient Egypt. ;o)

    This was originally posted by my cyber-friend Moxie; I was lucky enough to rescue it during a recent recipe 'adoption' drive. Her original intro read: "Sumac has a tangy, citrusy flavor and is very nice with the salmon & balsamic vinegar in this recipe. A little bird told me about the virtues of sumac (ok, it was Chef Canary Girl!), and now I'm a big fan. This recipe came from a website called Global Gourmet. Prep time includes marinating time, and cooking time will depend on the thickness of your salmon, heat of your grill, etc."
