Chef John's BLT Pasta
Have made this twice now just as suggested without modification and it was EXCELLENT! Last night I made it and, after taking advantage of a sale of fresh, pre-cooked, shrimp (12-16 count), I added a pound of those lil darlins to the recipe after I had added the "creme fraiche". I followed the recipe steps, as directed, after that. WOW! You want to take this recipe to another level, even though it is already incredible, just add shrimp! Unbelieveable! Thanks John... this is one heck of recipe that we will include in our weekly rotation. P.S., I didn't have creme fraiche this time around so I substituted Fage Greek Yogurt. It is a great substitute if you didn't take the time, like I did, to make creme fraiche. ENJOY!

B and L's Strawberry Smoothie
5 Stars for for simply being a great smoothie. We made it the first time around as directed but, due to my diabetic constraints, made it the second time around using 1 Tbsp Splenda, 1 Tsp Almond Extract, Plain Greek Yogurt, Fat Free Milk and, to sweeten it just a bit more, a cup of blueberries. Turned the blender on and, when finished, Smoothie Nirvana! Thanks for a versatile Smoothie Recipie!

Root Beer and Sesame Glazed Ribs
John, OMG this ranks right up there with those Clifton Springs Garlic Chicken Wings which we make on a regular basis now. We made these ribs as directed using baby back ribs and the results were incredible. Very tender and tasty; not to sweet. They say good things take time and this recipe is no exception to that rule. Take the time to prepare these as the recipe requires and you won't be disappointed. Thanks John! Oh, it is worth tracking down the Sambal Oelek; we ordered it on line since we could not find it locally
