This reminded me so much of a New England Boiled Dinner.  I absolutely love the baby dutch yellow potatoes and you don't loose one bit of flavor when they are cooked this way.  The sausage gave the dish a bit of a smoked flavor which was a nice touch.  Not to mention it made the whole house smell delicious!

My mother use to make a roast with mashed potatoes almost every Sunday when I was growing up.  I think I attempted to make one in my early to mid twenties that turned out to be shoe leather, so I never made another.  Although I was hesitant with the recipe, I couldn't have been more pleased with the outcome.  The roast was very tender, juicy and delicious.  Not to mention extremely easy to prepare.

My Mom use to make stuffed peppers when I was a kid, of course I hated them.  I really didn't care for bell peppers until just recently.  I didn't want to make the traditional stuffed pepper with rice and ground beef, so this is my version of a stuffed pepper.  It was quite tasty.

My daughter gave me a huge bag of frozen strawberries that she was not going to use.  I'm not really a fan of strawberries myself, but of course I couldn't let them go to waste.  A friend of mine is dieting with me and she was craving dessert so I made this for her.  The texture of the cake is similar to a tart rather than a cake.

This recipe looked so good and so simple to make.  I found it to be a bit bland.  The original recipe called for cream cheese and I substituted it with the greek yogurt cream cheese, this was probably the reason for it being bland.  The fat in original cream cheese would have gave it more flavor.

This one is a keeper.  I like the way the parmesan binds to the pasta when mixed with the pasta water.  The sweet crab with the subtle tartness of the lemon made this delicious.
