Turkish Fish Stew
This is an excellent recipe. I unfortunately learned the hard way--the recipe calls for a LOT of couscous compared to how much sauce there is. However, it's still pretty good this way. Changes I made: Used more garlic, flounder instead of tilapia, diced fresh tomato, cayenne pepper (not too much) instead of red pepper, more red wine and less water. In the future, I think I'll use even more garlic and cut out the ginger. I like ginger, but I personally don't like it with these spices. What I like about this is that the fish isn't the star of this dish--I think there's as much fish in here as vegetables; you could add more fish to this or cut it out completely and it would still taste good. This seems like a good recipe to experiment with, change around, have fun with.

Creamy Smoked Salmon Pasta
This is very quick and easy and GOOD. The alterations to this recipe that I always make are to use fresh garlic and mushrooms. I never use peas, either, because I'm allergic. Even though I used 2% milk, it seemed watery in the pan, but once I added the noodles it was fine. Another reviewer added spinach, and that inspired me to add arugula and chicory after adding the garlic, mushrooms, and onions to the pan (before adding the milk) and it was a great addition.

Radish Top Soup
This was very tasty and filling. I used a little half and half and a little 2% milk instead of heavy cream and the soup came out very heavy. I also added a very small garlic clove, and because I had no chicken broth, a mixture of water and white wine. It's also good with Parmesan cheese grated over the bowl. I would make this again, and probably add a mixture of other salad greens. I'll never throw out radish greens again.
