Horseradish Dipping Sauce
This spicy sour cream horseradish sauce is great for dipping almost anything worth dipping.
Seared Tuna with Wasabi-Butter Sauce
I've had the seared tuna in nice restaurants, but this is better than all of them. One tablespoon of wasabi sounds like a lot of heat, but somehow this cooking method mellows it to almost nothing, just leaves the flavor. Really really great.
Balsamic Dijon Dipping Sauce
A delicious balsamic vinegar and honey Dijon mustard sauce. Use for dipping vegetables in or spreading on crackers.
Tzatziki Sauce (Yogurt and Cucumber Dip)
Drain some low-fat yogurt overnight to make this yummy cucumber dressing. This is a delicious topping for grilled chicken or meat. It's also a great dip for veggies and pita chips.

Barbecued Pineapple! Serve in a bowl or a banana boat with pineapple on either side and a scoop of ice cream or two on top and drizzled with juice glaze. You may substitute juice (1/2 cup) for the sugar and rum part of the marinade.
Baked Macaroni and Cheese I
This is a delicious variation on macaroni cheese. While it may be slightly more difficult than other recipes it tastes even better!
Penne and Vodka Sauce
One of the best and easiest recipes I have tried. You can find pancetta at any good Italian deli, try not to substitute as it makes the dish. This is also very good with shrimp added in the last few minutes of simmering. If you like spice, add a dash or 2 of red pepper flakes.
Chicken and Sausage with Bowties
Necessity is the mother of invention. This recipe was created by me because I had a 1 1/2 hour commute to/from work. I have two teenage boys who require a hearty meal to sustain them for at least 1 hour (maybe less). This recipe can be varied; use pork italian sausage if you like (cook longer), veal or pork cutlets or cubes (be careful to cook pork products thoroughly). Serve as a sandwich, skip the pasta, mix with leftover cooked rice; add small green peas or broccoli. I doubt if anything you try will go wrong. Mangia!
