Homemade Paleo-Style Breakfast Sausage
I was pleasantly surprised by just how good this sausage is! My local grocery store had a pack of fresh "poultry seasoning" spices - sage, thyme and rosemary, so that worked out perfectly. I used the same amounts that the recipe called for except decreased the cayenne pepper by just a little and left out the nutmeg (I thought I had some but couldn't find it). They turned out yummy and pleasantly spicy! Also, I found that my patties browned a little quick and I wasn't sure they were cooked through, so I popped them into the oven for a few minutes at 350 degrees. I will definitely make this again!

Sweet, Sticky and Spicy Chicken
This was a pretty good recipe. I did dredge the chicken in flour before browning it, which probably helped thicken the sauce a little. I also use Sriracha for the hot sauce. It was pretty spicy and not that sweet, so next time I'd increase the brown sugar to 2 Tbsp and decrease the hot sauce to 1 1/2 Tbsp. But I will make it again with those changes!

Mocha Frosting
This was pretty good, although I did have to add a bit more milk to get it to a spreading consistency, and I also resorted to using a hand mixer rather than a whisk. I do think the instructions could use a little finesse - perhaps whisk the dry ingredients together, then add the wet ingredients.
