Wild and Brown Rice

Rating: 4 stars 23
A perfect side dish for game birds. May be prepared ahead of time and microwaved just prior to serving.

Crisp Marinated Cucumbers

Rating: 4.5 stars 103
My grandma gave me this recipe and I absolutely love it. It's great eating it in the warmer months or any family get-together.

Fennel Coleslaw

Rating: 4.5 stars 2
Refreshing and easy. The subtle fennel flavor classes up an otherwise average summer picnic dish. It's cole slaw for those who don't usually like it! Save some fennel leaves for garnishing. Especially delicious with grilled tuna steaks.

Berry Fruit Salad

Rating: 4.5 stars 21
Mixture of different delicious berries.

LaWanna's Mango Salsa on Tilapia Fillets

Rating: 4 stars 11
A delicious fruity salsa topping to serve over fish or chicken, from a friend in Florida. I always use whatever that I have left in a mixed greens salad the next day. Use any kind of fish -- I use tilapia or salmon. The fish may also be grilled, which is what I prefer. If I can't find a good fresh pineapple, I will use canned pineapple tidbits.

Aloo Gobi Masala (Cauliflower and Potato Curry)

Rating: 4 stars 74
Traditional Indian cauliflower and potato curry recipe from my mom. We used to eat this all the time growing up. My sister likes it with peas too.

Tequila-Lime Pork Tenderloin

Rating: 4.5 stars 68
A wonderful overnight marinade gives your pork tenderloin a wonderful lime-grilled flavor. You can also grill one tenderloin and freeze the other for future use.

Szechwan Shrimp

Rating: 4.5 stars 3270
Don't let some of the ingredients fool you--this spicy shrimp makes a simple, impressive dish, which I usually make for company. For more or less heat, adjust amount of red pepper. Serve over hot steamed rice.

A delicious blend of chicken, rice, and vegetables. Perfect as a meal, or to take the edge off hunger between meals. Excellent winter warmer.

Vegan Black Bean Burgers

Rating: 4.5 stars 201
Easy black bean burgers for everyone! You don't need to follow the recipe or amounts exactly. I never do. Serve with your favorite burger fixings and sweet potato fries.

Garlic Green Beans

Rating: 4.5 stars 1260
Caramelized garlic and cheese! Is there anything better with green beans? You'd better make plenty for everyone!

Spicy Fish Soup

Rating: 4.5 stars 194
A delicious fish soup that's low in fat! Having grown up on the Texas/Mexico border, I like foods spicy, but you can adjust the seasonings to taste. I also splash in a drop of hot pepper sauce in each bowl.
