Apple Cole Slaw
I was a bit wary of the complexity of flavors, but I tried the recipe as written. Turned out delicious. I think the slaw sauce was key. I spiced it up with California Seasoning Salt (Pepper, salt, garlic, lemon zest). Using the freshest veggies also helps. The apples and mayo reminded me of Waldorf salad but so much better! I will use this recipe instead of the traditional Waldorf recipe. Oh yeah--one tip: make sure you toss apples in lemon juice before adding rest of ingredients. It'll prevent browning if your slaw is being stored for a few days. I paired this slaw with cayenne spiced tilapia.

Polish Sausage and Pierogy Haluski
I made a gluten-free version of this by subbing steamed cauliflower (al-dente) for the pierogi. I added the cauliflower after the kielbasa pieces. Just added freshly ground pepper as the kielbasa and butter has enough salt flavor. Great taste without pirogies.

Stuffed Bell Peppers, Greek Style
Read the recipe and a bunch of reviews. I started with ground lamb and onions. The browning went well, so I looked for my jar of cinnamon sticks--OH NO--ran out of sticks, so I couldn't try the cinnamon suggestion. Looked for my mint and all I could find was a bag of TAZO mint tea. It contained dried spearmint, peppermint and tarragon. OK, worth trying. I cut open the bag and used about 1 tsp. of the dried tea. Sure smelled good sprinkling on top of the lamb/rice mixture! After 15 minutes the rice was a little gritty, so I added another 1/2 cup of water and simmered another 15. The rice softened much better. I halved and gutted 3 green peppers but only had enough meat mixture to fill 5 halves. No problem; I saved the extra half for another cooking adventure. I didn't have chicken stock or broth but I did have a can of CAMPBELL'S Tomato Bisque. I whisked the condensed soup with 1/2 can of water and used that instead of the broth/diced tomatoes. Was I a ??????? for deviating? Only time will tell. Loaded everything in the crockpot because in Phoenix we don't use ovens between May and October. Set for High for 2 hours and the meal came out yummy (without the feta cheese because I'm more of a fontina lover)!
