Chef John's Spaghetti alla Carbonara
Surprising! With so few ingredients, I just didn't see that this was going to be so good. I have a tried and true cream based pasta carbonara sauce that we all just love. I was curious about this recipe since it's entirely different, and knowing that, I didn't expect one to replace the other. This is a lighter, but still flavorful dish that is completely different. The dosage of pepper is very distinct and the egg mixture does make a nice cream sauce, despite my hesitation that it would. Will definitely keep this recipe and do like that it's about 2/3rds the calories per serving of my other pasta carbonara recipe.

Orange Tilapia
First of all -- Don't discard the mainade! Pour it in pan, boil it and reduce it slighly for a few minutes before adding a pinch of cornstarch to thicken it up to a glaze. I drizzled this over my end product and voila! Amazing. And it adds the mildest flavor or orange. I'm not sure you'd taste any orange otherwise and I marinated it over night. (Would I even bother wth that step next time? Hmmmm...) The grocery store did not have tilapia at the tme, so I picked up a pound of filet of sole. Worked great. Sole is super thin, so I broiled it start to finish for about 5 minutes. Toasts the crust up nicely as well. If you're a garlic lover -- triple it. If you're a salt person, this will need a sprinkling of that as well at the end. A really wonderful and light fish dinner.

Roxie's Bran Muffins
Delicious. Easy. Low Cal. Nutrient Rich. Did I say delicious? These are all of my favorite things. Made the muffins exactly as written. Will be keeping this recipe for sure. Fill muffin cups all the way to the top. They don't rise more than 1/2". Mine were done in about 17 minutes. Definitely don't want to over cook them.
