Italian New Potato Salad
After chilling overnight, I added a jar of (I chopped) marinated artichoke hearts & their oil (as the dressing, adding a bit more "greek" dressing), julliened sun-dried tomatoes(in oil), crumbled fresh Feta. Along with suggested it DID "become" a 5-star that was thoroughly enjoyed by all. Good "starter" recipe to tweak guys! Thanks for the idea though, it was a great chilled picnic side. Much better than the ol' stand-by "3-12 bean" salads!

Mexican Corn Cakes
I made these for eco-thrift meal. I got the bright idea of laying a medium Cojito slice in scant amount of batter, then smeared more batter after a few seconds on griddle covering cheese to edges. I chopped everything from japs to avacados. AWESOME! (Got left-over taco meat? Use it up.)Kids eat this stuff UP!

This was too beautiful to cut!, but we certainly did and it was devoured! I used peanut-butter cookie mix,(a household staple)and all dark chocolate chips, equaling the BOMB! Exercise, exercise, exercise!!!

Impossibly Easy Roasted Peppers and Feta Cheese Pie
This was basic. To get great "greek" flavor add 1/2 box of frozen/thawed/squeezed dry chopped spinach, sauteed with 1/2 a small chopped onion, 1/2 tsp. mint, 1/8 tsp. nutmeg, 1/4 tsp. garlic powder, salt/pepper to taste. Yes, season Bisquick mix with pepper.
