Herb and Garlic Roast Tenderloin with Creamy Horseradish Sauce
I've made grilled beef tenderloin roasts in the past that were out of this world, so I figured this one would be good, but my expectations were somewhat low. But I wanted a recipe that I could make in the house. Well, this turned out to be phenomenal!! The rub was delicious, and the horseradish sauce complimented it so well. We all loved it!! My roast was slightly smaller, but the cooking times were just about the same as the recipe stated. Perfect!

Old Fashioned Mac and Cheese
FINALLY!! A mac and cheese recipe my entire family can agree on!!!! My husband and I like one thing, my kids like another. This recipe solved the dilemma! It is easy to make, and delicious. Even my very particular brother in law admitted it was "pretty good." (high praise, I can assure you!) The one change I make is to omit the onion and add some onion powder to the bechamel. We all felt the raw onion was too harsh. I would have simply sauteed them, but the littles can detect the presence of onions in any food, lol, so as a compromise, I used the powder. That satisfies everyone. Thanks so much for sharing this-now it is the one mac and cheese recipe EVERYONE asks me to make!!

Firecracker Scallops
This was really delicious!! I was not sure about the combination of flavors in this dish, but everything worked very well together and it was very easy. Other reviewers were right about it being salty-the next time I make it, I will lower the amount of garlic salt and add garlic powder to replace it because I think the bacon grease adds a key flavor component to the dish. Also, because I did not have horseradish sauce, I mixed up my own with horseradish, mayo, a touch of vinegar and pepper (you could make it with sour cream too, but I have a dairy issue). One other thing that I did was streamline in terms of pans used. I cooked the bacon in the microwave, then poured off the drippings. Also, I used a broiler safe skillet, and rather than move everything to a baking dish, I just added the final ingredients to the pan and put it under the broiler. It tasted amazing and dirtied fewer dishes! We will definitely be making this again-thank you so much for the recipe!!
