Recipe Sharing

I have tried a few new recipes recently that I thought were worth sharing:

Couscous Encrusted Halibut
I wasn't sure how this would turn out but I was pleasantly surprised. It was fresh and light and had the perfect hint of lemon. I served mine with homemade tartar sauce.

Roasted Summer Vegetables
There are a ton of recipes out there for this and chances are you probably already have a favorite. But I had never roasted zucchini and summer squash (always preferred to steam them) and I loved it! So here is my recipe:
zucchini cut into chunks
summer squash cut into chunks
small red potatoes cut into chunks
sweet yellow onion sliced
2 cloves minced garlic
salt and pepper
olive oil

Toss all ingredients in a large bowl until coated. Spread onto baking sheet. Roast in a 425 degree oven for between 20-30 minutes. I did mine a little too long and the squash came out a little mushy. But still very yummy!!

Bran Bread
My good friend Becky, who is a wonderful cook gave me this recipe a couple of years ago. It is pretty easy and very delicious. Healthy too!

1 cup warm water
1 Tablespoon yeast
1 teaspoon sugar
1/2 cup sugar
1 teaspoon salt
1 14 ounce can evaporated milk
1 cup All Bran cereal
4 1/2-5 cups flour

Let water, yeast and teaspoon of sugar sit for approximately 10 minutes until yeast is dissolved. Add sugar, salt, milk and cereal and mix. Add flour and mix again. Dough will be somewhat sticky. On a well floured surface, roll into three oval loaves (fits on one greased jelly roll pan). Let sit for three hours, covered. Bake at 350 degrees for 20-22 minutes.
