Tasty Sweet Potatoes
After reading other reviews, I sliced my potatoes thinly and covered the baking dish with foil. That did the trick; the potatoes were very tender, but not mushy after only 45 mins. I also used golden raisins instead of regular raisins. A nice, simple and healthy side dish.

Cherry Chicken Lettuce Wraps
Loved the ginger in this recipe. The only reason I can think of to omit the cherries is if they are out of season. There really do make the recipe delicious.

Poached Fish with Cucumbers
Yum, yum, yum! I followed the recipe except for using Dijon mustard instead of plain mustard. I also went a little heavy on the tarragon (dried) based on another review indicating that it was a little bland. We loved the results, and hope you do, too!
