Ginger Veggie Stir-Fry
Best stir fry I've made in a long time. In the past I've used frozen vegetables and packaged sauce mixes, but NO more! A goal for this year is to eliminate processed foods in my home and do more scratch cooking with more vegetables. And boy, this recipe fit the bill and was SO tasty. Lots of flavor and lots of crispy fresh veggies. The least healthy part was the jasmine rice I served it with, but that's a must have. I made this recipe pretty much as written. I did toss the veggies in the cornstarch mix but didn't have a problem with gumminess. However, I did make more sauce (extra 2T soy and 4T water) so perhaps that helped. I also added 1T hot szechuan marinade to give extra flavor without making it too spicy for any family members. We like a little extra sauce with the rice so those amounts worked well. I used reduced sodium soy sauce and did not add the extra salt. However, since I made extra sauce the dish had plenty of salt. More would have probably been too much. I used all fresh ingredients: ginger(half amt), garlic, broccoli florets, julienned carrots, sugar snap peas, green onions, and sliced red cabbage. What a yummy and healthy meal. Definitely a do-again!! Thanks, Veggigoddess. :)

Spicy Sausage Quiche
Thank goodness this tasted better than it looked! Mine came out very thin using the listed amounts of egg and cheese. I don't know if it'd have puffed up more if I'd added milk? Also, it seemed that my eggs separated as the whites were identifiable. The finished dish looked quite strange! I was looking for a basic, traditional, country kind of quiche or casserole to use up some plain sausage. Had trouble finding what I was looking for so I thought I could tweak this one appropriately. I swapped out seasonings since my family has had a lot of mexi dishes lately. Left out the hot peppers and used green bell pepper instead. Left out the chili powder, cumin, and garlic. I doubled the black pepper and added a pinch of cayenne pepper to add flavor and a little kick to an otherwise basic egg and sausage dish. The flavor did turn out pretty good; hubby and teens liked the taste even though it didn't look great!

Slow Cooker Chicken Marsala
Next time I will do the following: Add a lot more salt and pepper to the flour mixture. Also add some italian seasoning and garlic powder to the mixture. Dip chicken in egg before coating, brown chicken before placing in crock pot. Saute onion along with garlic before adding to crock pot, then use marsala to deglaze the pan. Those steps will increase prep time, but hopefully it'll positivelly affect the outcome.
