Here's the week in review from Eat Little, Eat Big as well as other tidbits from the blogosphere that caught my eye.

Monday-an easy way to prepare a holiday favorite

Tamarind Spiced Nuts

Tuesday-well known, but new to me, tri-tip recipe

Santa Maria Tri-Tip

Wednesday-quick and easy puff pastry tarts

Puff Pastry Tarts

Thursday-a nice, crunchy fall side dish

Slaw with Cabbage, Carrot, Apple and Tarragon

Check out the new "Friends for Weightloss" site created by Danica for recipes, support, challenges and success stories focused on Weight Watchers. 

I seem to be attracted to veggie recipes this week (probably due to an overdose of reading holiday dessert posts).

Here's an asparagus dish that I'll be using for Christmas dinner by Noob Cook.

An amazing spaghetti squash recipe on Danica's site (scroll down to the bottom of the post to see the beautiful picture!)

And finally, an interesting and unique spinach soup recipe from the Pioneer Woman.  I got some spinach in my veggie delivery this week and it's cool and rainy here in paradise today so I'm off to the kitchen to whip this up!

Have a good weekend everyone!
