Chicken Salad Al La Barbara

Reviewed: May 4, 2008
I really love this recipe, but it needs a little more flavor for my taste. Usually I use a lot more ground pepper and double the sauce (also add plain yogurt). I have not yet got adding other spices down to a science , but when I get it right this is a 5 star recipe.

Poor Man's Caviar

Reviewed: Apr. 16, 2008
I modified this quite a bit incorporating suggestions of other reviewers. I first made it during the winter when good tomatoes were hard to find. As modified i likeed both the ease and taste. --2 avocado, peeled and cut into bite-size chunks (make sure avocados not too ripe. Stores better and longer if avocado a little green) --2 medium cans of diced tomatoes and 1 medium can of diced tomatoes with chilis (all very well drained). Omitted chilis, green onions, hot sauce, and roma tomatoes. --Zest and juice of one lime --Large bunch of cilantro (finely chopped) (fresh cilantro is key to taste) --1 tablespoon of store bought minced garlic (the fresh garlic was a little raw tasting) --1 can whole kernel corn (drained; we like the taste of vacuum packed corn best) --2 cans black beans rinsed and drained --1/4 cup Red Wine Vinegar --1/4 olive oil --salt and pepper to taste. Mix all together and store in refrigerator. Makes a great side that goes with so many things--chips, crackers, or just by itself. I've shared this recipe with many people. We LOVE poor man caviar

Easy Turkey Curry

Reviewed: Aug. 14, 2006
Good way to use up leftover turkey. I used leftover fried turkey, container of fresh mushrooms (YUM), and added green peas and colored bell peppers that I had in the freezer for extra color & taste. I also added about 1 1/2 tablespoons curry powder and pepper to taste. Did not even taste like leftover Turkey! Keeper

Added 1/2 cup terkayki, and a bit of fresh chopped rosemary and thyme. Used can of whole cranberries instead. Also used cheaper pork roast with bone and removed bone just before serving. Guest raved about the taste. Keeper
