15 Meatless Lunch Sandwiches That Kids Will Love. Ratatouille. With Ratatouille (a new animated movie from Pixar) coming out in a couple weeks, I thought it would be fitting for me to present a recipe for Ratatouille (a dish from Provence). This is a wonderfully flavorful vegetable dish that can be served as either a side or as a main entree. There are a variety of recipes for Ratatouille and the ingredients often change from cook to cook, but most contain eggplant (aubergine), garlic, onions, zucchini (Italian squash or marrows), and bell peppers. Usually the recipe is seasoned with Herbes de Provence, but (as in this recipe) it can be as simple as parsley and basil. Often the individual vegetable components are cooked separately in olive oil, but I like this recipe that cooks the vegetables together. I adapted this recipe from the Culinary Institute of America's newest book - Vegetables: Recipes and Techniques from the World's Premier Culinary College (which I will review soon).

Wash and scrub all the vegetables. Ratatouille (serves 4 to 6) Chocolate Epiphany, Vegan Chocolate Mousse Pie. Serve up a chocolate epiphany this Valentine's Day.. Creamy cool. No bake.

Arugula Salad: Mango, Macadamia, Avocado. One thing I brought back with me from the Dole Salad Summit, was the inspiration to make this Arugula Salad.

In part three of my wrap-up posts (part 1 - part 2) you'll get Dole's take on "Salad 101" - and for us bloggers, that meant tasting a few salads.

Blueberry Croissant Puff. I’ve eaten my weight in chicken noodle soup this week. Being sick is no fun at all. I’m having a hard time kicking it. But I can see the light at the end of the tunnel and am actually craving something that has to be chewed and not slurped. I had someone email me and ask me if had something against blueberries because there are hardly any blueberry recipes on this site. Nope. Not true at all. I just have a hard time making time and room for every food in my life. But just in case you do in fact have something against blueberries, any fruit would be fabulous in this. How can you go wrong with cut up buttery croissants, fruit, and a cream cheese milk mixture that is baked until golden brown.

You can use fresh or frozen blueberries. Ingredients 3 large croissants, cut up (about 5 to 5 1/2 cups) 1 cup fresh or frozen blueberries 1 package (8 oz.) cream cheese, softened 2/3 cup sugar 2 eggs 1 teaspoon vanilla 1 cup milk Instructions Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
