Tangy Tuna
This recipe can turn out pretty good but ONLY IF YOU CHANGE THE METHOD OF COOKING. Skip the water/poaching method -- that's just weird. What you need to do is saute the onion in some butter until browned and soft. Then, add in the tuna. Doing this really improves the flavours and makes for a very good dish. (good for on top of noodles or rice, or even as a sandwich filling, as strange as that sounds...) I recommend a little extra blob of butter right before serving if you are going to put it on pasta. :-) And a little S&P helps too. The recipe, as written now though, is really not that great, but like I said, with these changes it turns out delicious.

Tuna Fish Pea Salad
I agree with previous reviewers who suggest frozen peas in place of canned. Canned are too mushy -- the frozen ones add a nicer texture. I also add in a bit of minced onion. This is a great recipe/idea though. The peas really add something nice and a good change of pace from the standard celery in tuna salad! :)

Sauerkraut Soup I
Great recipe! Nice to have one that is vegetarian. (all the other ones I've seen for sauerkraut soup seem to contain meat!) Simple and good. I used rice in place of barley and sauteed FRESH mushrooms with the onion in butter instead of using dried mushrooms. Other than that, i followed the recipe as is... I really like this. It's a keeper and will make again. Thanks for posting.
