About this Cook
I'm a woman w/a mission to bring the amount of sugar & fat DOWN in any recipe we use in our house. It's common knowledge that, as a general rule, Americans ingest Way too much of both in our diets & it really isnt a hardship to rethink how we cook or what we expect food to taste like. Also, I'm determined to Never use artificial sweeteners in any way, shape or form because - truthfully? They just scare the daylights out of me!!! Many or most of the foods we eat contain an overabundance of man-made chemicals already. I firmly believe that as long as the natural sweeteners that have been in use since cooking began are utilized In Moderation, our bodies will readjust to the simple natural ingredients & maintain good health.

Best Braised Balsamic Pot Roast
You know it’s a testimony to an excellent cook when reviewers state that they followed the recipe “to the letter” and more often than not, that’s what I’m seeing here. I’m one of the guiltier cooks on all-recipes who pretty much Always changes something while preparing recipes and I gotta tell you, this is a First for me! Followed everything as directed by Jim from Chicago [well, except for an extra onion & a few cloves of garlic thrown in!! ;-\ ] & this was a smashing success!! Moist & tender, fall on the Floor delicious! Hubs got a slightly distressed expression when he noticed the can of crushed tomatoes on the counter previous to cooking as he was looking forward to the “usual” pot roast – ala onion soup variety & he’s not usually a fan of tomatoes in meat dishes but one bite of dinner tonight & he was a happy camper! I followed Dutchgirl’s suggestion and built her flavorful sauce as a gravy which went along pretty nicely with roasted potatoes & carrots – the reaction?? “OOhhhhh, Yeah!!” thumbs up in obvious satisfaction! Thanks Jim, for a wonderful change of pace which we will enjoy on a regular basis!!

Fusilli with Rapini (Broccoli Rabe), Garlic, and Tomato Wine Sauce
One word...A-freakin-MAZING!!! This dish is So easy once you get the rabe blanched & really, there's nothing to that! Made as a main dish, we Never even missed meat at this meal but I'm sure it would "go" well with fish or pork as well. The wine added beautiful depth to the dish along with grated Asiago cheese instead of Parmesan. I am infamous for doctoring recipes but, truthfully, there was little that needed changing here! Honestly, I can't wait to make this again to share with dinner guests! Thanks so much, sophie - you Rock!

Amazingly Succulent Roast Turkey Thighs
WooHoooo, I get first dibs on reviewing a recipe! This was an amazingly easy & delicious recipe. I added extra carrots & onion and only used 2 thighs but it was a fabulous meal for two. I threw the bones, leftover meat & veggies with the juices in a pan later to cook up some freezable broth as well! The only thing I will change next time is to cut open the cooking bag about 45 min in to allow the skin to crisp up a little. Otherwise, it was a Winner! Thanks, MJ!!
