Miso Glazed Salmon

Miso Glazed Salmon with Asian Hash Browns

"Soy sauce is really a multi-purpose seasoning."
-Martin Yan

Martin Yan is right. Soy sauce is a great all-purpose sauce with saltiness and umami that complements recipes. It does take some restraint and using just a bit goes a long way.

Miso is the same way. It contains a lot of salt but a special tangy umami flavor and takes only a bit to have a major impact on a dish. Pair with big flavors like salmon, beef and pork for a great meal.

Lasagna with Eggplant

Lasagna with Eggplant

This is a big portion of lasagna that is rich and cheesy. The best part is that the recipe is so simple and takes about 30 minutes prep time. The hardest part of this is mincing the garlic - or maybe lining the pan with foil, but you will be happy you did because clean up is so much easier.

Acorn Squash Pasta Bake

Acorn Squash Pasta Bake

This is a warm, rich, and very filling meal just made for chilly Autumn days. You can use a butternut squash for this too but they are generally much larger and you would have to double the rest of the ingredients in the recipe (making four servings). I had originally thought about making this recipe using leeks but decided on the more economical white onions. Leeks would bring more sweetness to the dish as well as a lot more fiber.

Dr. Gourmet's Food Reviews

Timothy S. Harlan, M.D.This week we're continuing what my wife is calling "the breakfast burrito tour of the frozen food aisle." A couple of weeks ago we discovered two breakfast burritos from Sweet Earth Natural Foods, a company new to Dr. Gourmet, that our panel thought were truly excellent. Today we're returning to a company we've known for years: Amy's Foods.

Over ten years ago we reviewed Amy's Breakfast Burrito and gave it poor marks. After ten years, we thought it might have improved. According to the numbers on the package, it would appear to have been changed somehow: there are 20 more calories in today's burrito, along with slightly more fat and saturated fat (1g and 0.5g, respectively), 1 gram more fiber, 1 less gram of sugar, and more protein (3 grams more).
