Peanut Butter Vegetable Chicken Soup
Delicious! I had a quart of broth I had made from roast chicken bones. I used that, about a cup of chicken, a large carrot, a can of diced tomatoes, a stalk of celery, half a red onion that I had in the fridge, and about 1/4 of a lg. green pepper. Didn't have zucchini or broccoli, don't like potatoes in soup. I didn't saute the veggies - was cooking in a rush - but cooked the soup quickly, refrigerated it, and heated it later with cooked rice and a sweet potato I had microwaved until just done. I added a dash of cayenne and a squirt of lemon; would have added a little fresh ginger too, but the jar I had in the fridge had to be tossed. I used at least 1/4 cup peanut butter, maybe 1/3 cup. Highly recommended!

Japanese-Style Cabbage Salad
I made this to go with a Japanese chicken dish, because I had half a head of cabbage to use. I was out of scallions, which would have helped a lot, and I chose not to bother with the almonds. I added two shredded carrots, did use the garlic, and used only 1/2 tsp pepper. Not bad, but the sesame oil was too overpowering. I ended up using another Tbsp each of sugar and vinegar to try to counteract the oil. If I make it again, will use 1 T. sesame oil and 1 T. canola, with the same amt. of other ingredients.

Gyroll
Delicious flavors, but not an ideal format. I essentially followed the recipe as written. Minor modifications: I reduced the salt and pepper by half (still too salty), I used Kalamata olives in a lower quantity than suggested, used 7 oz. feta as that is what was in the package, and used Vidalia onion as suggested by others. The pizza dough was fresh from my supermarket. The rolling process wasn't too tricky, but the result wasn't worth the trouble. The innermost dough wasn't well-cooked, the filling was too dry, and it was too messy to eat out of hand. The same ingredients might be better used for individual-sized calzone-style pockets, and I am definitely going to redo this recipe as a pizza, with a bit of mozzarella and some diced tomato so it won't be too dry. I made Yia Yia's tzatziki from this site, which was an excellent complement to the dish, and served it with a simple tomato salad.
