Exquisite Pizza Sauce
This is a great pizza sauce recipe. I multiplied the recipe by 6 and canned it what I didn't use on the pizza I made for dinner. I didn't have anchovy paste or honey and I left out the cayenne pepper purposely to keep the heat down. I added sugar to taste, which ended up being about 1 1/2 tablespoons. You need some sugar to keep the balance of flavors with the spicy peppers and the bitter of the tomato. I also had to substitute one whole minced onion, and about 4 cloves of fresh garlic for the powder since I didn't have powdered. I blended everything after cooking to make a smooth velvety sauce. Overall, this recipe is very easy and it tastes great. It is easily substituted for what you have on hand or personal taste preferences. My personal tastes: I added one cup of dry red wine and let everything simmer for an hour before canning.

Honey Grilled Shrimp
I was looking for some sort of glaze with ingredients I had on hand and this fit the bill. I didn't have many of the ingredients for the marinade so I didn't do it and just mixed up the glaze to brush on the shrimp and veggies while they cooked. I used an indoor electric grill and this came out great. It didn't cover up or overpower the shrimp flavor and was just the right amount of sweet and tang. Served on a bed of steamed jasmine rice and a small garden salad. Absolutely great!

Chocolate Chip Cheese Ball
I was concerned about this cheese ball because it seemed too soft but it ended up being a bigger hit at our New Year's party than my traditional cheese ball. I'm glad I made it! I did a snowman design by mixing in the nuts, rolling in powdered sugar, and then using more mini chips for the buttons and face of the snowman. Very cute! Served with graham crackers. Everyone loved it and said it tasted like cookie dough. This is a keeper!
