  1. Loved, loved, loved this. Another recipe where I wanted to eat only this and forget everything else on the menu. Made exactly as written and my whole family loved it. For my personal preference, I would add more jalapeno, but was feeding non-heat lovers and the amount as written was perfect-not sure they were even aware it was in there. GREAT summer salad.
  2. Stunning!! This was just wonderful!! I used lemon juice, and red onion because I didn't have green onion, and lime. The sweetness of the mango combined with the smooth beans and tart, bright, lemon juice was just outstanding!! This will be a great side to some grilled salmon or chicken!! How can something so simple , be sooooo good !!! This will be a standard around here this summer!!


I was born and raised for the most part in Georgia. Since 1997 I've lived in the beautiful mountains of western NC, where I spend way too much time at work and not nearly enough time camping! I have a partner of 15 years (Lee) and 3 kids--2 grown and 1 teenager still at home. Lee doesn't cook, but she's my cooking cheerleader, and she and my son will always at least try anything I make, no matter what. Camping is one of my favorite things to do. Other favorite ways to spend my time are doing beadwork, knitting, and making homemade soap. I should also admit that I spend waaaay too much time on the internet, but the bright side of that is that it brought me to Zaar! I spend a ridiculous amount of time here, but I love every minute of it. It's also has helped cure me of my pathological cookbook buying. I used to call cookbooks with full-page glossy photos my food porn. ;-) Now, thanks to all the talented photographers here, I can get all the food porn I want! I love to read recipes, which most of my friends think is just weird. I suspect, though, that a lot of you don't think it's weird at all! I love to cook, but only when I want to. I also love to entertain and wish I had time to do more of it. I love trying new recipes. I was a vegetarian (vegan, actually) for several years, and that's when I got hooked on trying so many different cuisines. I still love vegetarian foods, but I do eat some meat, fish, and dairy/eggs now. I still try to keep it healthy and eat as little processed food as possible, but I'm not totally strict about it. Sometimes I want some good old junk food--I just try to make it home-made junk, so at least I know what's in it! My pet peeve is willful ignorance. Grrrr
