Raw - the Pasta Marinara is one of my favourite meals, it's what I have on my birthday. I also love the Pumpkin seed cheese. I think it tastes like tuna, but maybe that's just me. The mayo is lovely, I use it for waldorf salads. Oh and the Pot Pie is good for S.A.D. eaters.

Juliano's meatloaf is what I made pretty often when transitioning. You need a dehydrator, though. I also like quite a few of his salads. And, if you like, spicy and sweet, the mango soup (not sure of the name) is outstanding!

"RAW" - I second the pasta marinara [p152]...plus...butternut squash soup [p17], strawberry romanoff [p181]...yum. cole slaw [p42] is not bad, also raw chips [p75...you will laugh at how easy].

The macaroons are the best cookie going.
Cranberry Maple Granola, can use agave.
(I made these into bars...wil take a pic when they come out of the dehydrator.)
Apple walnut crepes
Thai spring rolls

I've made the garlic bread several times. It's great warm just out of the dehydrator, or cold the next day. Put the topping on not-to-thin - it's great! AND, it makes you home smell wonderfull too!

Raw - the chai spice sauce thing. It really kept me going at the start , is easy to make and keeps in a screw-top jar for days. I made it at first in a food processor and it was a thick sauce; when I got my Vitamix I found the same mixture could turn into a thicker mousse-like gloop.
RFRW - where to start - lasagne, buckwheat crispies, the crackers, the carrot soup, the tacos.
I'm assuming you also have Alissa's book - if not, the two books above are't really entry level raw food book in terms of ingredients, equipment or kitchen skills where Alissa's has much easier recipes as well as one that are restaurent standard. :)

It's been a while, but I really liked the Hummus L'Orange and the Oatmeal Cookies in Juliano's book. The hummus was probably the only "raw" (if you can even call it that since there are some cooked and/or questionable ingredients in it) hummus that I could enjoy!
The Chocolate Macaroons in Raw Food Real world are great, but I ended up adapting them because I didn't want to use maple syrup. I think I used some agave, some honey, some dates and a little butter extract and it tasted really, really good!
