Roasted Carrot Salad
A W E S O M E Went looking for a carrot recipe since I had a large bag of carrots and knew they weren't going to get used up before vacay. Found this and saw it had some ingredients I just love like cheese and arugula. (I'm not a huge fan of cooked carrots.) This was great and I did take others' advice on decreasing and/or increasing some of the ingredients and roasting the almonds separately. I also went w gorgonzola. I prepped the carrots first drizzling w oil and adding salt and pepper. Threw it in the oven while I minced the garlic. Threw the carrots back in the bowl and mixed in the garlic and back in the oven. Carrots cooked great at 30 minutes. Easy to make. Def roast almonds separately so they are perfectly roasted because you'll pick up the nutty flavor in the salad.

Chef John's Roasted Brussels Sprouts
Like others I had brussel sprouts in restaurants and they tasted fine. The onions separate this recipe from the rest. I didn't have the cipollini onions--just some pearl onions frozen. I took some other reviewer's suggestion (from another brus sprts recipe) and just steamed the veggies first. In my case also because I was using frozen onions. I liked mine 'greasy'. But I eat 90% paleo-style and extra fat is not an issue as I'm very healthy. Today I'm using a regular yellow onion and will update on the results some other time.

Baked Maryland Lump Crab Cakes
Thanks for this recipe. I made the recipe once w/o the Old Bay and it was OK. But thanks to 'LynsieC' for her review about the 'Maryland" style crab cake because this made me realize that is not what I want. But I came back and used this recipe as a guide and made changes-so if you're still interested keep reading: omitted breadcrumbs because I eat towards a no-lo carb (diet) and higher quality fat. Added 3 tbsp coconut flour. Didn't have Old Bay so I searched for the ingredients list and used every spice in my cupboard that I had. Of the Old Bay list I didn't have cardamom or ground bay leaf and omitted celery salt and flakes because I sauted celery, onion and green pepper to add to recipe. Added dash of thyme. (All 3 veggies amounted to approx a cup) While sauteeing I added 2 bay leafs and removed before incorporating into meat. I went with two eggs. I tried the muffin pan method and tho not disasterous, I will not try again because they stuck a bit. I made 8 thick cakes with a pound of canned pasteurized crab. I salted 'by eye'. My crab cakes were amazing with the right amount of heat and I will never change this recipe. I tried the Aioli suggested and tho too mayonazy it went well w the cakes. I will be looking for a diff. recipe on that sauce. As with many recipes -if you're not a regular cook-don't expect great results. People who cook a lot have methods and techniques you almost can't put on paper. Here for example-my Old Bay substitute.
