  1. This is really nice, especially with the cranberries! Very interesting salad. Great flavors, great ingredients, great recipe! Thanks for sharing, Misa. Made for Go For The Green event at KK's forum!
  2. I made this up and ate it so fast I forgot to take a photo! I used veggie bacon bits and really enjoyed this! Yum. Thanks! Made for KK's Chef's pick game.
  3. Nice recipe! I love this salad, but sometimes want to use part of my broccoli head for other things. I do use less mayo, and have used balsamic and raspberry balsamic vinegar instead of white.


I've been hanging around here for awhile, so I guess filling this part out is overdue...:oops: (6/09) I am a teacher, married to a pretty swell fella, and have a spoiled rotten princess, er, I mean, cat. I'm pretty eclectic with my passions - obviously cooking and eating being high on the list! I love to read (from cookbooks to horror/suspense to fiction, fantasy, sci-fi to nonfiction...if it's still long enough, I'll read it). I make beaded jewelry, mostly bead weaving, some stringing. Enjoy listening to most sorts of music - and it's a darn shame I can't dance, sing, or have any sort of rhythm. Computer geek at heart - I'm frequently on the net or playing games in my spare time. I also like drawing and writing, but I don't have as much time to do as much as I used to. I have amassed quite the Good Eats DVD collection (thanks to my DH.... and he's sweet enough to make sure I've picked up the plungers and dino squirt bottle along the way :D). And to complete the quintessential nerd profile, yes, I do read comics. I couldn't pick a single favorite cookbook, but golly, I looove fundraiser cookbooks. Talk about tried and true! I tend to collect all sorts of cookbooks, most of them southern cooking. Guess I cook what I know. If you ever try any of my recipes - thank you! I hope they tickle your tastebuds! <img src="">
