    I'm not much of a squah fan at all. Most of it seems tasteless and bland. Still need to get the balls up to try cooking the turnips and parsnips I bought.

    I'm the only one in the house that won't eat spaghetti squash, I'm really not good with the taste or the texture.

    somehow I manage to leave my intelligence and decorum at the door wherever I go. I doubt your journal will be an exception to that - not on the rug

    So I made it with some modifications. Ribs had a Moroccan spice rub which has some sugar in it but eh, whatever. I used zuke and eggplant since there were no other squashes to be found. For the sauce I used butter, HWC, sharp cheddar and Monterrey jack. Sauteed up the veggies, put them in pyrex, pour on the cheese sauce, baked. All in all pretty damned good.

    You do what you have to so the both of you are happy. Makes sense really.

    I don't know that mine are creative so much as "let's hope this works" or "how do I make this work since it doesn't want to." I'm an engineer. I don't like being told there's no solution; matter of fact, the best way to get me to do something unfamiliar is to tell me it's impossible. Thanks for the compliment, though!
    Sounds like your version worked really well.

    I'm the type that'll make a dish according to the recipe then if it's like, I expand on it. I never had any formal training just learned on my own. Thanks for the compliment

    That is sort of the problem getting my wife to stick to it. She gets bored eating what I like and wants to cheat. Neither of us are the greatest cooks, so I am trying to pick up what I can from the rest of you.

    Yeah, give the posted recipes a try. It is amazing how tasty food can be with a few ingredients and no major special techniques. It is kind of sad really that now when I go out to eat I often say, "huh, I can make better than this at home."

    Our favorite broccoli recipe is this. Blanch some broccoli in boiling water until just barely soft, then shock in ice cold water. While the broccoli is cooling off, in you sautee pan add some olive oil and garlic and let sautee for a minute. Drain the water off your broccoli and add to the oil, sautee for 5 minutes and you can actually let it sit in the pan as you want black bits on it. Once cooked, you'll add some S&P and squeeze lemon juice on top. If you want a little more heat, add some red pepper flakes. My kids LOVE this recipe.
