Spanish Cod
After visiting Spain last fall, and often coming across cod served with tomatoes, I wanted to find a dish that incorporated tomatoes with the fish. This recipe is excellent. I do tweak it a bit, though. I add more Spanish herbs like thyme, basil, tarragon, rosemary. I eliminate the Italian deli veggies and add artichokes, not necessarily marinated. I add enough lemon so that I can taste it in the tomato liquid and that makes for a wonderful broth. And, I use only one type of pepper spice, not two. We usually eat it over either brown or white basmati rice. I have not served it at a group dinner, but only with family. That is my next step! Thank you Lundegaard1 for this wonderful, nutritious recipe.

Excellent basic muesli recipe. I always omit the brown sugar, as the raisins and other fruit make this plenty sweet. For the "naughty bits" I add dried currents, dried cherries, dried figs, dried cranberries -- basically any dried fruit that I have available to add to the taste. I have added chopped pecans to add to the nutty flavor and when I did not have walnuts. My wife and I eat this recipe with chopped seasonal fruit -- a half cup muesli and a half cup fruit. I use rice milk and she uses her own homemade kefir. The wheat germ, oat bran, and wheat bran give the muesli a creamy flavor when you let them sit in the liquid you use when eating them. This has become a staple of our diet, so many thanks.

Mimi's Smoked Salmon Chowder
I have made this recipe several times. I have not varied from the ingredients. The smoked salmon I have used is wild smoked salmon from Costco, which you purchase in two 8 oz. packages. and I cut it up small -- 1 " squares. I did cut down on the fat content by adding 1/2 milk with the half and half. The dill really makes it. Everyone in our home loves this recipe. Thanks for a great recipe!
