Megan's Amazing Spaghetti and Meatballs
I really liked this recipe (I'm a Megan too!). I made both the meatballs and tomato sauce and stuck to the recipe pretty dead-on. BUT I struggled with the ingredient portions. My grocery store sells ground beef in 1lb portions, so I went ahead and doubled the meatballs (froze half for later). Also, I could only find crushed tomatoes in 28oz cans - but that ended up being a blessing because if you like plenty of sauce on your pasta, this recipe does not serve anywhere near 6. Next time I'll use the full 28oz and adjust the seasonings/wine accordingly to get more sauce. The meatballs portion of the recipe worked perfectly though - I was able to follow it to a T and had perfect meatballs!

Sean's Mommy's Roasted Root Vegetables
This was a really tasty, flexible recipe. I only had a rutabaga, the turnips, and a butternut squash on hand, but that was still a great combo. I tossed some garlic powder, onion powder, kosher salt, and pepper. The flavors are great, but it also really presents well - the reds, whites, and oranges are beautiful! Also reheats well (I just finished some leftovers for lunch!).

Gourmet Mushroom Risotto
This is delicious. Just finished eating some of my leftovers for lunch (which come right back to life with a little water and heat). I used a mix of oyster mushrooms from my co-op and some portabellos, which turned out to be less than the recipe calls for - I would definitely add more in the future. This was my first attempt at risotto, so I need to work on finding the right balance of heat - my rice wasn't quite done when I ran out of broth to stir in. I also wasn't crazy about amount of butter, I could taste it too much - I would probably add half in the future. But, those are fairly easy and personal tweaks - flexible recipes are the best in my book. I definitely needed a second pair of hands to keep the rest of the meal cooking along, so if you're the lone cook, you're better off cooking this as the entree vs a side.
