Orange Glazed Carrots
I didn't think this was very exceptional, but perhaps this is a reflection of my taste and not the recipe itself. I much prefer the naturally sweet taste of carrots. Baby carrots are so delicious on their own - why bother sugaring them up? Stewing the carrots in orange juice is a good idea, but drenching them in fattening butter and sugar isn't great for your heart or your waistline! I might use this recipe for very large or slightly bitter carrots (or for family members that wouldn't touch a vegetable with a garden rake otherwise!), but for baby carrots I would just steam them until tender and serve! If you make this recipe, then steaming the carrots instead of boiling them at least preserves more of their nutrients.

Oven Roasted Potatoes
A great way to use up extra potatoes! I used peeled baby potatoes. Next time I won't peel them. I used 1/4 cup of olive oil and will do so next time as well. I didn't have all the herbs and spices so I just added what I did have with a little extra added. We're garlic lovers so I added 1 big tablespoonsful of garlic puree (delicious!) and some garlic pepper. I didn't have any red pepper flakes so I used just a dash of standard Indian hot chilli powder. Even a few dashes of hot sauce would substitute nicely for the red pepper flakes I think. The tiny bit of zip this adds is well worth it. This recipe is definitely a keeper!

Baked Dijon Salmon
Two thumbs up! This is, hands-down, one of the best recipes I've got from this site. I can't believe that other reviewers aren't drooling over it as much as we are! I've cooked a lot of salmon and this is one great recipe. It was absolutely delicious and very simple to make. Instead of breadcrumbs I used crushed bruschetta, although any sort of crackers would work quite nicely. I used a 1/2 cup of butter since I love saucey sauces. I skipped the nuts since I didn't have any on hand - tastes just fine without them. Instead of fresh parsley I used 1 teaspoon dried. I loved having extra sauce and I served it at the table so people could help themselves. Yum!!!!
