Grandma Wells' Tuna Macaroni Salad

Reviewed: May 13, 2013
I just made this to take for lunch a couple of days this week. I shreaded the cheese because we don't have the bigger elbow macaroni in the Netherlands, only little bitty ones, and I didn't want the cheese to be bigger than the noodles. I also haved the recipe because I live alone and get really sick of eating the same foods too often. However, I am not so sure I would get sick of this! Very yummie.

Chef John's Beans and Greens

Reviewed: Jul. 6, 2012
Loved this although I did modify it a bit to be totally vegitarian by leaving out the anchovy and using vegitable boullion instead of chicken. I needed a new way of using escarole instead of the traditional Dutch way of mashing it into hot potatoes. Another reviewer mentioned using turnip greens, I think this would also be wonderful with kale or even spinach.

Cabbage Balushka or Cabbage and Noodles

Reviewed: Jun. 30, 2012
I was looking for a 'comfort food" recipe to use up a head of cabbage that I got in my organic bag this week. This totally fit the bill. I did add some shreaded carrot (also in the bag) to add some color and extra vitamins. Very yummy!!

Creamed Cabbage

Reviewed: Jul. 30, 2010
Loved this dish. I live on my own and in the Netherlands where we grow a lot of cabbage. This dish was a great one pot dish with plenty of leftovers to play with. I didnt use bacon but used finely diced ham instead, adding a little oil to replace the loss of bacon fat. Heated some up the next day for lunch and threw in a handfull of leftover rice. Yummy!!

Easy Red Beans and Rice

Reviewed: Jul. 12, 2010
This is very close to the red beans and rice where I used to work. I did use cajun seasoning and added some red pepperflakes. I think i will use more tomatoes the next time as I like it a little more like stew. I had ben craving this and live outside of the US now so these kind of dishes are hard to find. Was very happy to be able to make it myself. Thanks!!

Chicken and Dumplings I

Reviewed: Aug. 2, 2009
Wonderful! I made the dumplings to go in my own soup recipe. There was maybe 1/4 of a cup of flour left in the bag..I just threw it in. I did use self rising as I live in The Netherlands and baking soda is hard to find. I found the dumplings very delicious and not at all hard. They also did not tast like flour. After reading that some people found the dough too sticky, I simply made sure that my surface for kneading the dough and rolling it out was very well floured. It worked well. My dutch husband preferred them over the doughy dumplings that I usually make and he loved those. Dumplings in my house will be these from now on!!

Marinated Peppers

Reviewed: Jul. 19, 2009
Fantastic! I just made this recipe with dried parsley and oregano since I didn't have any fresh, I also sliced a red onion, brushed it with olive oil and grilled the slices in a grill pan, cut the slices in half and tossed with the peppers. I have tasted it already and cant wait till hubby gets home to serve dinner. Will be serving this tonight, cold, with grilled salmon and toasted homemade sourdough bread. I like that this can be made ahead as we entertain often and will be a great dish for entertaining!

San Francisco Sourdough Bread

Reviewed: Jun. 21, 2009
I live in the Netherlands and cant find sourdough bread here. I was really craving some grilled sandwiches on sourdough bread. I used this recipe, minus the onions, with the starter from Ester Nelson. It was great! This was my first attempt at bread making and I couldn't believe how easy it was. Thank you for sharing.
