Zucchini 'Noodles'
I grated with a potato peeler and sauteed in olive oil and butter; salt and pepper and topped with my own version of healthy spaghetti sauce including red peppers, mushrooms, onion, garlic and jarred sauce. Soooo gooood! Thank you all recipes...couldn't find it anywhere else!

Ramen Coleslaw
This is just what I wanted!!! Only changes I made was using 1 tablespoon of sesame oil in place of half the vegetable oil, it does make a huge difference in the whole flavor. I didn't add salt, just the ramen seasoning packet, used balsamic vinegar instead of white wine vinegar, as that was the closest I had in my cupboard, which tasted great but it would have looked prettier using a white vinegar. I did follow another reviewer suggestion and toasted almonds (raw, chopped because that was available), sesame seeds and the ramen noodles. Also used fresh green and red cabbage. Thanks again, soooo good!

Stir-Fried Shrimp with Snow Peas and Ginger
Very good! pretty much stuck with the recipe except subbing for ingredients on hand. Fresh ginger, Mirin instead of wine or sherry, celery instead of snow peas and reconstituted chicken powder/water instead of opening a whole can of broth. This one is a keeper.

Something about the grill's heat brings out the best flavor in the simplest chicken recipe.
