Marrakesh Vegetable Curry
Love, love the flavors in this dish! Added ginger based off some comments in the reviews, and about a cup of beef broth at the end of cooking during simmering. Big hit with the whole family, I served over simple white rice and it was a great, complete meal.

Zucchini and Potato Bake
This is a very, very good dish - a GREAT way to use up the abundance of garden fresh zucchini, if you're fortunate enough to have that problem :) I made very close to original recipe, but used panko in place of regular breadcrumbs, probably quadrupled the amount of garlic, and had to up the amount of salt, pepper and paprika about half way thru when a taste test wasn't satisfactory. It's a simple but satisfying side that would be great paired with a grilled meat. Also relatively inexpensive ingredients - a keeper!

Juicy Roasted Chicken
This is fantastic - I've made roast chicken dozens of times but will rate this five stars for the EASE + deliciousness of the end result. Used butter in place of margarine, and was very generous when salting, peppering and onion powdering the bird. Basted every 20 minutes. The highlights: the tasty, crispy skin at the end, and the milk gravy made with the drippings. To make gravy (DONT skip this!! You'll be glad you didn't): after letting chicken sit for 30 mins, transfer it to a plate and scrape all remaining brown bits and drippings into skillet. In a separate bowl (or mason jar with lid), mix 1 1/2 cups whole milk and 2 tbsp. flour together until blended. Pour into skillet with drippings and whisk constantly over medium heat. When bubbles appear, continue whisking for another minute then remove from heat. Taste and adjust seasoning as needed (mine needed salt). The gravy is to die for!
