  1. Delicious! I forgot to add the tofu so I assume the flavor was supposed to be milder, but frankly we loved it that way. I did add a little siracha for heat. I'll try to remember the tofu next time! This was easy to make and while the flavors are mild there's enough there to make it interesting. And I really like getting the bell pepper haters to eat some nutrient-packed peppers and love them!
  2. I served this last night for dinner with chicken. I didn't use the tofu since my family doesn't care for it. This was really good. I made it Zaar World Tour 05


I came to this site in March of 2004. It was then called Recipezaar. This site was the first on-line site that I ever joined. I first popped in 2003 while searching for a Peach Cobbler Recipe. In March of 2004, DH was having shoulder surgery and I was looking for a Split Pea Soup. Once again I found myself on Zaar as it came to be called. Over the years I hung out and learned from some of the best home cooks in the country, I posted over 700 recipes on the site, reviewed over 3500 recipes and posted over 3000 food photos. Over the next 10 years the site made many changes and in 2010 it was sold to to Food Network and became Until last year we played games, talked and shared with one another. As a result of the community and the relationships I built I got to meet some wonderful people from all over the country. I also have a great number of friends that I have never meet face to face. Some of us still hang out at various places across the net. Zaar was more than a cooking community. It was an internet community of friendship. Life is an adventure ever changing.
