Sarah's Applesauce
Unbelievably easy. I had a recipe for Tropical Grilled Pork Chops. (See delicious!) but did not have any canned applesauce so made some with Sarah's Recipe. Perfect and obviously a lot healthier. I did drain off most of the water used to cook the apples before mashing them!

Greek Green Beans
These are the best Greek Green Beans (Fasolakia). The secret is to give them plenty of time to simmer to really fuse the flavors. I cook them for at least 60 minutes. I used i large onion (diced), a bit more garlic (3 cloves, diced) and 1 can of diced tomatoes with garlic and basil. A good tip is to add a good glug (maybe 1/3 cup or so) of red wine the last 20 minutes of simmering. I serve them with roasted lamb from the grill and crispy oven roasted potato wedges.

Chinese Pepper Steak
The beef was very tender. I tasted an oily taste when eating it. Oil too much or too hot in my wok? I cooked the beef first, removed it and cooked the onions and peppers then added the beef back to the wok.
