Re:Roast Pork Tenderloin Stuffed with Honeyed Apples and Pecans

I don't eat mammals but I prepared this dish for my husband and a friend. I followed the instructions to the letter. It was so simple to put together and was ready in a flash. Both the men liked it and cleaned their plates. I served it with roasted potatoes and steamed carrots. I had some of the stuffing left over so rolled it up in a couple boneless chicken thighs for me. It was pretty good but just a little bland. If I was going to make it again I would add some chopped, dried cranberries or make a reduction of some kind to drizzle over the top just to give it that little extra it seemed to need.

Re:Sesame Noodles with Chicken

I did not have ginger flavoured soya sauce so used tamari and grated some fresh ginger in to mix. I chopped the garlic and put it in a bowl along with everything else and used an immersion blender (easier to clean than a food processor). I found the dressing too sweet. I should have used natural, unsweetened peanut butter but didn't have any. Or, I could have used less brown sugar. I added hot chili flakes in oil to add some heat and counter the sweetness and it was much better.I warmed up precooked prawns and put them, along with the dressing on wholewheat spaghettini.Not sure if I would make this one again as I have other recipes similar to this that I like better.
