Simmered crabapples from my ornamental tree on very low heat. Used the juice with turmeric and garlic powders to marinate small piece of pork loin. Tasty and tender and minimizes the sodium.

Helgarazor: I would add cinnamon and some paprika. Both make everything taste richer in small amounts and seem to blend well. But if you add a lot with a teaspoon of sugar, a few tablespoons of tomato paste and a few sprigs of fresh mint then the dish becomes a Greek ethnic event - which is good, too.
Have fun,
Pam

We have tons of onions. So, I made onion soup. So incredibly delicious and it feels so gourmet - when truly I was missing half of the ingredients but I went ahead anyway and it was wonderful. I have never made it before but I have a feeling I will be making it often.

I tried eggplant.
I made a dish that was different, it was linguini, eggplant, squash, carrots, garlic, basil, and pepperall saute'd and mixed together. I found it very bland, it needed some kind of spice, I just haven't figured out what spice.

The most important things in life aren't things.

This is a neat challenge. One of my favorite diet motivation tools is to buy a new vegetable or fruit every week and figure out what to do with it, and this has led to a lot of surprisingly good recipes. When I ran out of new ones I started over! Daikon radish, anyone? Star fruit? Tomatillo?

How you anything is how you do everything...but don't let perfect be the enemy of good.

I want you to step outside your comfort zone and make a new recipe. Look in your cupboards and see what you have and then check out a recipe site, either sparkpeople's or recipezaar or just google and find a recipe using your ingredient and try it out.

Every worthwhile accomplishment has a price tag attached to it. The question is always whether you are willing to pay the price to attain it -- in hard work, sacrifice, patience, faith, and endurance.
