I hope you are all having a wonderful summer, as I am(or winter if you're in the southern hemisphere:)
I am hoping to get some suggestions... My husband's birthday is on wednesday, and I would really like to make him a nice dinner. Problem is, I have no idea what to make him. I am willing to shell out a good amount of money but nothing astronomical. (up to $60). Anyone have any simple suggestions/recipes? I ask for simple but nice, because I work half the day, then am home with a super hyper 3 year old until he comes home :)
Thanks so much in advance!

Ok guys, I thought I'd make a new effort in keeping this community going. I figure maybe if we spread the word a little bit that things might be more fun around here. So I've made some promotional banners. They are on the info page along with the html codes. I'd really appriciate it if anybody could post some banners for me. thanks a bunch!

How about good summer dish ideas? Cooking in the summer is so diferent than any other season, I think. I really like to make salad bar with fresh bread. What else is good for the summer?

Hi guys. I was wondering if you all could help me with something. I'm looking for recipes for really healthy or low fat snacks. Also looking for any other healthy recipes you may have, as long as they don't cantain fish, asperigus, brusslesprouts, squash of any kind, raw tomatoes, ocra, or tofu. (yes I know I'm picky) thanks in advance!

Since we are entering the Spring/Summer season, I'm in a mood for salads. I'm very courious to see what kind of recipes you all have. If you feel like sharing, post your recipes here. I'll start by sharing one of my own. It's actually a recipe handed down to me from my Grandmother:
Cabbage Bannana Salad
1 head of green cabbage
4 semi ripe bannanas
Miricle whip to taste
*Start by cutting the cabbage very finely or shredding it in a proccesser. Slice up the bannanas into 1/4 inch chunks. Mix cabbage and bannanas, fold in miricle whip until you reach desired consistency. Should be similar to coleslaw. Best if served right away due to the fact that the banannas will turn brown after a while.
We have this at every holiday dinner, but I think it is best served during the spring and summer months. With this dish, you'll either love it, or you'll hate it. There is no in between. =)
