Sesame Parmesan Zucchini
This recipe was easy and delicious, and the flavor is a perfect complement for almost any type of grilled food. I used 2 smallish zucchinis, and perhaps could have reduced the olive oil a bit, but the recipe is truly just fine as written. (The liquid on the cookie sheet after baking is water from the zucchini, not exess oil.) We will definitely be making this dish again!

Curried Pork Chops and Cauliflower with Basmati Rice
I made this recipe because I had planned to make pork chops for dinner, with cauliflower as a vegetable side dish, and this sounded like an interesting variation on the same old-same old. As an added bonus, it was a one-dish meal. I did make a few substitutions based on what I had in the house - half & half instead of buttermilk, rhubarb chutney (Bifana, also from this web site) instead of apple, regular onions sauteed with the pork chops instead of green. And because my husband and I are both curry wimps, I cut way back on the amount of the curry powder I used - maybe half (or even less) than what the recipe called for. In spite of these changes, our meal was absolutely delicious. In the lovely creamy sauce, the sweetness of the chutney with the sharpness of the curry powder was a wonderful combination. We will definitely be having this meal again!

Beer Braised Irish Stew and Colcannon
I looked for a St Patrick's Day meal that didn't involve either corned beef or lamb, and this is what I chose. We were not disappointed! I used a red beer instead of a dark (because that was what I had in the house), and, like some other reviewers, I cooked the cabbage in the bacon drippings, rather than the microwave. I did wind up thickening the stew liquid with more flour before I served it, which made a rich and tangy gravy. I used a bit less meat and added more carrots and onions, but that is just a personal preference. Since I didn't have a Dutch oven, I simmered the pot on the top of the stove at low heat for a couple of hours, and the beef was melt-in-your-mouth tender. Serving the stew on top of the colcannon was a wonderful combination. This is a definite keeper! But getting 8 servings from it, as written? Not in my house - perhaps we just enjoyed it TOO much!
