Scrambled Eggs Done Right
These are the best scrambled eggs ever...tried this recipe a few years ago, and it's the only way I'll make them now. Hubby loves them, and so has every person I've ever made them for. They try to figure out what makes them so "different." :) I've also made omelets out of the same recipe, and they're always great!

Hollandaise Sauce
5 stars and 2 thumbs up!! Finally, a hollandaise without the double boiler requirement - and it's easy, perfect consistency...just excellent. My sauce turned out to be a beautiful orange-yellow color since I used super-fresh eggs, courtesy of my backyard chickens (thank you ladies!). We had it over bright green sauteed leeks with wild rice pilaf on the side and it made the perfect meal...colorful, tasty & extremely satisfying - my husband is still raving 2 days later :) Thank you for sharing!

Lebanese-Style Red Lentil Soup
After reading everyone's reviews, I realized just how versatile & forgiving this recipe is...use what you have & don't worry about what you don't! I used vegetable broth instead of chicken stock. Added some sliced carrots and celery as I sauteed the onion and garlic (if you get a bit of browning on the veggies it brings out more flavor). I reduced the cumin to less than half of what's called for, and added dried thyme & ground coriander (sorry, I didn't measure...just a good shake into the palm of my hand). Fresh tomatoes cut into chunks & added at the finish are wonderful...along with a bit of coarse sea salt. Sadly, the cilantro I had on hand wasn't the freshest, so I decided not to use it...also left out the lemon juice...but will try both next time. This has just enough heat to not be overwhelming; this comes from someone who doesn't like hot, spicy fact my husband was surprised that I was enjoying it, since the heat was just right for him :) Thanks for this's found a permanent home in my recipe box.
