Absolutely Fabulous Greek/House Dressing
Sooooo good! Sooooo easy. I scaled to just four servings, and it tasted fantastic. Delicious in a regular tossed salad with feta cheese sprinkled on top. This is a keeper. No need to ever buy bottled Italian or Greek salad dressing.

Elegant Orzo with Wilted Spinach and Pine Nuts
Not only is this dish delicious, it looks elegant. I brought it to a Christmas party potluck and it was a big hit. Based on the reviews, I cooked the Orzo (al dente) in chix broth. I used a little less EEOV than called for. After lightly browning the pine nuts I added about an 1/8th of a c. of dry white wine, and then only slightly wilted the spinach before tossing the mixture with the orzo. I also added some finely chopped sundried tomatoes in addition to the regular tomato. I sprinkled the balsamic vinegar and the feta (used tomato/basil feta) just before serving. I did not use the full amount of balsamic called for as I was concerned the flavor would be overpowering.

Chicken Tortilla Soup I
This is good! Couldn't find hominy up here at my local grocery store in central Maine so I added about 1/4 cup of uncooked quinoa to the broth. I know it's nothing like hominy, but I wanted to have some small grain in the soup, and quinoa works! I used homemade chix broth instead of canned and also in place of the water called for in the recipe.
