Low-Carb Mashed Cauliflower
Very tasty! I would never have thought to make cauliflower this way. It even looks like mashed potatoes on the plate! We had it with a sirloin roast and a stir-fry medley of veggies, and it was great with or without the gravy. I streamlined it a bit: put the whole head of cauliflower into the pressure cooker for about 10 minutes on high, let cool a bit, then cored and simply mashed it smooth with a potato masher. I had an 8 oz. container of garlic-and-herb whipped cream cheese and put half of it in, tasted it and dumped the rest in. Sooo good! I did then whip with my hand blender, but I don't think that it was necessary and won't bother to next time. And that was it. No need for more garlic or any salt, it was already perfect. I did add some black pepper--but then I usually pepper everything. Next time my (grown) kids are here, I will make this without saying anything and see if they even notice - especially since I always put parmesan in my mashed potatoes : )

Szechwan Shrimp
Tripled everything so as to add a bag of frozen mixed stir-fry veggies to a lb or so of medium frozen pre-cooked shrimp. Used: chili sauce instead of ketchup since I had it; about 2 tsp grated frozen ginger; sesame seed oil; and a whole head of garlic (12 cloves.) Would've done the fresh chopped broccoli and slivered carrots instead of frozen vegs, but am making broccoli-cheese soup later this week. Made this a day ahead and just put it all in a glass jar, (oil, uncooked garlic and onions too) shook it well and fridged it. To finish, heated sauce with veggies till thickened, then added thawed shrimp just till heated through. Served over jasmati rice cooked in chicken broth instead of water. 5 stars = good enough to pass on to the daughter! :)

Magic Lemon Pie
I used to avoid any and all recipes that called for sweetened condensed milk, as they were invariably waay too sweet for me! Then one day my daughter requested a birthday Flan, and every recipe I found had that sicky sweet stuff in it. So decided to try using evaporated milk instead and add my own sugar to taste. It was a complete success! There are so many more recipes that I can try now, that I wouldn't before, because I can have complete control over the amount of sugar. Just sharing for those who also found this pie too sweet...
