Pear crostini
Rating : Not Rated

Holy cow this was good. and very easy. Found it here: http://www.kirotv.com/food/3672060/detail.html I only used one slice of pear per crostini, and that was plenty. To make the crostini, i used 2 french bread baguettes and cut them into 1/4" slices. brushed each side w/ olive oil, and baked each side for 2 minutes in a 400 degree oven.

Super easy and very fun. Best to eat it fresh out of the fryer! Found it here: http://www.starchefs.com/features/indian_spotlight/2005/html/crispy_okura_s_saran.shtml This was the first time i deep fried anything! Of course that makes it fun and ok for a party, but maybe not so good for most days. For next time: I might try brushing it w/ oil and sticking it under the broiler or baking. Also, I am going to soak the red onions in lemon juice or vinegar for a while. I think this will bring out the sweetness, and cut the strong "onioniness" and it will all blend a bit nicer.

Eggplant Pesto
Rating : Not Rated

Another one stolen off the internet: http://rosas-yummy-yums.blogspot.com/2006/06/eggplant-pesto.html i'm going to try it this week, w/ the eggplants roasted instead of boiled. [update] it was fantastic! by the way, i have no idea where this photo of pesto came from... still new to reciperate, so maybe i'm missing something? or maybe i accidentally copied it. ?!

I copied this from another site, but it looks good! [update] i realized when i was making it this recipe calls for no salt. but of course, i added lots. i also roasted the bell peppers instead of boiling. it was ok. the yogurt sauce was the star. i actually ended up w/ a lot of leftover stuffing, which i turned into a pretty decent millet vegetable soup, with the addition of vegetable stock, mushrooms, carrots, etc.
