Hello, I am looking for recipes that are good to make when I need to take a dish (e.g., new mom). I would like it to be delicious of course and easy to do of course ;-)<br>

Fruit salad or pasta salad would be mostly prep-ahead (easy) and tend to be popular.<br><br>
Or, how about a hot spinach-artichoke dip,<br>
or a hot, layered bean dip with tortilla chips?<br><br><img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile"> ,<br>

My dh often takes a lentil/chickpea soup. His recipe is similar to, but not exactly the same as, <a href="" target="_blank">this one.</a> He doesn't use chicken broth, parsley or noodles. I like it with noodles though, it's traditional and good.<br><br>
(no, my dh isn't Moroccan, he's from upstate NY, but this is still one of his signature dishes.)
