Spicy Tuna Fish Cakes
I thought this was just "OK." The texture was good, but the flavor was a bit bland.

Tangy Honey Glazed Ham
This glaze is delicious. The orange zest/juice give it a freshness that is above and beyond the typical honey glaze. A real stand out flavor that my family loved on our Christmas ham. Served it with Jamie's Cranberry Spinach salad from this site, using the orange flavored craisins, and Giada's Baked Mashed Potatoes. A simple yet delicious holiday meal.

Health Nut Blueberry Muffins
These were easy to make and taste really good. They aren't too dense and heavy like many "healthy" muffin recipes. I used a really ripe banana, so the banana flavor dominated the blueberries. Might try canned pumpkin or applesause next time for a milder flavor.
