Side Dish - Tomato And Pepper Salad

Washington DC Swingers
I make this salad using fresh tomatoes from my garden. The key is to let it marinate and chill for the flavors to blend.

Seafood - Avocado Lime Shrimp Salad Ensalada De Camarones Con Aguacate Y Limon

This easy shrimp salad contains no lettuce. It's perfect for barbeques or as a 'change of pace' dinner side dish. Customize this recipe with your favorite salad dressing in place of the lime juice. The lime gives it a tiny tangy kick.

Meat And Poultry - Clarks Quiche

Adult Search Saguenay
This recipe is excellent served for breakfast with fruit, or at lunch or dinner with a salad. This recipe makes two 9 inch pies. The reason for this is because if you only make one you will hate yourself the next day when there are no leftovers. Bacon, ham, and spinach and mushrooms are layered with 3 cheeses in this rich delicious egg dish.

Pasta - Yummy Korean Glass Noodles Jap Chae

After lots of trial and error, I have managed to recreate one of my favorite appetizer dishes served at a Korean restaurant. While this is not the traditional Jap Chae that includes meats and vegetables, this one is sweet and delightful. Great served as an appetizer or a side dish to chicken and meat! Enjoy.

Side Dish - Savory Roasted Root Vegetables

Beets were my sworn enemy until I tried them like this, it's a great way to use root vegetables. I think the beets add a beautiful red color to the dish, but if it bothers you to serve pinkish vegetables, substitute parsnips, rutabaga, or any similar vegetable; be creative!

Cheese - Joannes Super Hero Sandwich

Indio Booty
Much like the N'awlins muffuletta, this is a large sandwich layered in a round loaf of crusty bread. You can be flexible and vary the cold cuts that you use according to personal preference! Must be done a day ahead, which makes for an easy serve.

Soups Stews And Chili - Sausage Barley Soup

This is a nice soup recipe with a lot of texture and flavor. It is a welcome change for those weeks when there doesn't seem to be a lot of variety... and all 3 of my kids even loved it. This can also be cooked in a pan on the stove until the barley and carrot are tender, but I prefer the slow cooker method. The flavors seem to blend better.
