In honor of my 100th post a recap of my top 25 post popular and favorite posts.

 I am proud to post my 100th blog post.  For this post I'm just recapping my top 25 recipes.  I have separated them in to 5 categories of 5 recipes.  It was fun to go through all my posts I hope you enjoy them as much as I did.  Here they are.

Vegetarian Entrees:

Szechuan Eggplant: A quick and easy vegetarian stir fry made with eggplant, garlic, ginger, and soy sauce.

 Tofu Thai Green Curry:  The sweetness of coconut milk, the sourness of lime, and the saltiness of fish sauce. A Thai green curry made with tofu and vegetables.  Delicious.

 Bhindi (Okra) Masala:  A vegetarian Indian dish made with okra and spices.  A delicious, healthy, and filling meal.

 Slow Cooker Vegetarian Chili:  A meatless chili made with four kinds of beans, zucchini, and a mixed pepper puree.

 Tabouli and Greek Salad with Hummus and Pita:  A healthy and fresh  Middle Eastern themed meal of Tabouli and Greek salad with pita and hummus on the side.

 Prime Rib:  A juicy and tender beef rib roast served with a baked potato, cauliflower, and Au jus.  The perfect anniversary dinner.

Slow Cooker Meatballs: Tender meatballs in tomato sauce cooked in a slow cooker.

Brats in a Blanket and Papaya Salad:  This meal takes a childhood favorite (pigs in a blanket) and makes it adult food by wrapping bratwursts in a homemade roll with smoked Gouda and sauerkraut.  Served with papaya salad on the side, and mustard for dipping, of course.

 Slow Cooker Sloppy Joes:  Who doesn't love sloppy Joes? I made this childhood favorite in my slow cooker with ground beef, lentils, bell pepper, onion, and some other regular house hold condiments.

Vegetable Spring Rolls with Peanut Sauce:  Noodles, lettuce, sprouts, carrots and herbs rolled tightly in rice sheets served with a peanut sauce for dipping.
