Colcannon Bake

Reviewed: Jun. 4, 2011
Frugal food at its finest! ... I used leftover mashed potatoes, a quarter head of cabbage that had been sitting in the fridge for 2 months, the green top part of leeks that I had leftover from another dish, and bacon strips left over from last week's breakfast. (plus the other ingredients). Almost all from leftovers, and it STILL tasted terrific! You really can't go wrong with this one :-) Thanks so much for posting the recipe.

Broccoli and Stilton Soup

Reviewed: Nov. 30, 2010
I made this with broccoli stems (peeled & diced small) instead of the florets. I halved the recipe, and added a clove of garlic, minced, at the same time as the onions. After simmering, I pureed the veggies & broth in a blender, and strained back into the pot, then reheated & added the cheese. It was delicious! You can easily taste the Stilton even though not a lot is used. (Love, love love Stilton!)

Cottoneyed Peas

Reviewed: May 2, 2009
I made a double recipe of this for a big party and everyone RAVED about it!! I adjusted for personal taste: more garlic, less tomatoes, added a small can of diced green chilis, some diced red bell pepper, and diced ham. For simplicity, I tossed everything in a crock pot and let it cook for several hours so the flavors would mingle. I served it right in the crock pot. SUPER EASY and delicious! Definitely a recipe to add to our favorites ... Thanks!

This stuff is amazing! I had to bring something to a dinner party honoring some young professional guests from Egypt, and this is the recipe I chose. It was confirmed "authentic" by the guests. (One gal said it was considered very healthy.) I made a double batch and brought home the portion that was left -- it stayed fresh for a couple months in a plastic airtight container. Hubby and I like it so much we had to make a new batch after it ran out! TRY THIS: Cut some fresh salmon into strips about 1" thick. Coat the salmon with dukkah and sauté in butter. YUM!!!

Zucchini-Lemon Sorbet

Reviewed: Sep. 1, 2008
I was looking for ways to use up fresh zucchini & summer squash (aren't we all?!) so I had to try this.... It's great! I used yellow squash instead of zucchini, and lime instead of lemon. At first I was concerned that the recipe doesn't specify exactly how much squash to use (size of squash can vary greatly!) but I think the measured amounts aren't critical here - just go by taste. My husband, who doesn't like to eat anything weird, said it was the best sorbet he ever tasted. We actually made two batches... the first batch we did not strain the pulp out (why waste the zucchini was my thinking)... It tasted fine, but took over a day to freeze to a scoopable texture. IT'S IMPORTANT TO USE FRESH SQUEEZED lemon/lime and freshly grated zest for best flavor. (When grating fresh zest, be very careful not to grate too deeply because the white part is bitter. A microplane grater really helps.) Also, do not add too much zest to the recipe or it can taste too intense. The amount stated in the recipe is perfect.

Congealed Chicken Salad

Reviewed: Jun. 18, 2007
I made this for a Father's Day picnic and it was a big hit with adults and kids! (Even the family friend who hates mushrooms liked it! His wife took a copy of the recipe and plans to try it with cream of celery instead of the cream of mushroom soup.) ++ For the record, I used leftover chicken we had cooked in our backyard smoker. People commented that the smoky flavor made it extra appealing. I used a tub of whipped cream cheese (easier to stir in than the block type) and also added some fresh oyster mushrooms that I sautéd in butter. I used sweet relish instead of chopped pickles to save time. Next time I will try using just one packet of gelatin or maybe omit it altogether, to make it easier to dip with crackers. ++ I would have chosen a different name for this recipe, perhaps "Creamy Roasted Chicken & Mushroom Dip" -- I'm glad I tried it despite the original name! Thanks for the great recipe :-)
