Quinoa Tabbouleh
Made 1.5 times the recipe for a 4th of July potluck and it was just the right amount. I liked the proportions of everything as they were - well, I did actually add more quinoa; used a full 2 cups for the 6 serving portion I made, and liked it this way. The key is to buy very good tasting tomatoes! I used small organic cherry tomatoes bursting with flavor and halved or quartered them; didn't bother to seed them. Did not seed cucumber either. Fresh lemon juice in the full amount. I used all parsley and it was fine; again, use good quality parsley. I left the carrots out; couldn't picture in Tabouli but may try another time; would also like to experiment with using garbanzo beans to make it a full entree. I did add a small amount of mint. I think it's best if you cut the tomatoes and cucumbers pretty small. Another person brought a quinoa salad with black beans and people enjoyed them both.

Grandma B's Bean Soup
I cooked it on the stovetop rather than the crockpot, as I was short on time, and this worked out well. I'd soaked the beans overnight. I added 3 cloves of garlic and a bay leaf along with the onion, celery and carrots. I used 1 qt of chicken broth, and the rest water. I added some of the ham at the beginning, and more to taste at the end, along with plenty of salt and black pepper. I also added a bit of white cooking wine, some chopped parsley, and an all purpose seasoning called Spike. Delicious, as modified.

Oatmeal Pancakes II
This is exactly the pancake recipe I was looking for - to find a great recipe that I could make accommodate some dietary restrictions. I made a few changes - can't eat wheat so subbed Bob's Red Mill Gluten Free Baking Mix. I also increased the amount of oats and decreased the amount of flour. Used just 1 tbs oil. Also am non dairy so used almond milk with a splash of vinegar. Also added fresh blueberries. Perfect pancakes!!! (I've been trying various recipes and the search stops here.)
