Spaghetti Squash with Creamy Pumpkin Sauce
I Lalalalalalalalove this! Yay. I think what made it so yummy was cooking the garlic until it was golden to the point of almost brown. It was browned in places, and I had to use red onion because I am out of shallots. I cooked them both together, and used about 2-3 tbsp of the chopped onion. I added 1/4 c of parm to the mix. I salted the squash with No Salt, it works as good as salt and better for me, before adding the mixture on top of the squash. Topped it with a little more parm. I placed the squash and pumpkin mixture back into the shell of the spaghetti squash and baked it a little more until the cheese was melted. After it came out I grated a lil bit of nutmeg on top. Black pepper would be good too. But this is so good! Nutty and the rigth kind of creamy. Thank you. The rest of you gotta try it.

Addictive Sesame Chicken
I used a suggestion earlier to cut down on carbs and calories from fat. It worked great, but the sauce was weird tasting, like something was missing. I added honey to sweeten it. Good idea! I added bok choy, green onion, carrots,red bell pepper and water chesnuts. Gotta have veggies. I think toasting the sesame seeds is a good idea. And next time I'll add fresh pineapple to the sauce too. Luckily the family loved it. Using a wok is key to cooking the chicken using 2 tbsp. oil. Way less fat. And I added the veggies after removing the chicken. Very good, and fast! Nice tricks to this dish. Will make again. Missfavor inspired this dish wonderfully. Thank you for all the suggestions from others too.

Nectarine Pie
This is soooo good! I too used a crumble topping. Next time I will bake the bottom crust a bit before adding the filling. I think it'd be great adding some fresh rasberries in between the crumble topping and nectarines. Try this pie out. It's like having a slice of summer. I will make this pie more often. Sooo good!
