  • Have you ever had Brussels sprouts? I did for the first time yesterday and the way I made them are SO good... my hubby and kids loved it. Cut sprouts in half long ways, put them in a bowl and mix olive oil all over them. Add salt/pepper... mix them all around so the olive oil is all over the sprouts and put them in the oven at 400 for about 25 min. Kind of shake them every now and then. Keep an eye on them. they're done when there all a brownish color. SO GOOD! I couldn't stop eating them! I know its not a main course but its an easy side!

    wash and pat dry mushrooms and remove stem to hollow out mushroom
    mix drained crab meat with 1/4 cup mayo, teaspoon parsley and a small amount of cheese
    add too the hollow mushroom and place mushroom on cookie sheet top with cheese, as much as you would like.

  • Combine first 8 ingredients in a small saucepan. Cook over medium heat 5 minutes or until smooth, stirring frequently (this can also be done in the microwave; use a tempered glass bowl, like pyrex, cook for 20 seconds, stir, repeat until smooth). Remove from heat. Cook pasta in boiling water 8 minutes, omitting salt and fat. Add tofu, onions, and carrot; drain. Place pasta mixture in a large bowl. Add peanut butter mixture; toss gently.
