Roasted Garlic Lemon Broccoli
Even better tossed with toasted Pine Nuts and Parmesan Cheese right before serving. My favorite way to prepare broccoli ever!!!!

Cheese Fondue
Awesome! Made as recipe indicated with a squeeze of lemon juice at the end to even out the cheese. Also rubbed my pot with garlic. Next time will throw in a couple of cloves. Served with Apples, grapes, sausage, and crusty bread. Huge hit and cannot wait to make it again!!!

Sesame Pasta Chicken Salad
Very good! However, it could be "Excellent" with a few minor changes. I made as directed with the exception of the following: I only added 1/3 cup oil. I used Olive Oil. Also added two cloves chopped garlic. Did not measure the Cilantro or the Green Onions but I know I put much more than the recipe called for. Don't skimp on these as they make the recipe!!! Next time I will use fresh Ginger and add some canned oranges or thinly sliced carrots for color. Will also add some toasted Peanuts. I think a crunch factor was the missing ingredient.
