Blueberry-Lemon Pound Cake
I'm giving this 5 stars because I know it's a good recipe! It's baking right now....but, you might want to add 1/2 teaspoon of salt and 1 teaspoon of vanilla, it really enhances the flavor. NOTE, this makes A LOT of batter! - I mean A LOT!!! I had the entire bunt cake pan full along with a small loaf pan. If you use a decorative cake pan like the one shown in the pict, you might need all that batter. If you are using a basic bunt/round cake pan, you might want to customize the recipe to 12 servings. That being said, I plan to place the small loaf in the freezer for a later date - so no problem!! something to look forward to later.

Sweet and Sour Sicilian Tuna
This was reallllllllyyyy good! Even just the basic recipe it's good. I threw in a little bit of garlic and some marjoram into the mix and that made it extra flavorful. I would imagine that you add just about any herb and it would not spoil it. Fantastic.

Salmon Bisque for Two
This is a great recipe. I did a few substitutions, as I used 2% milk instead of cream - which brought down the calories. Instead of paprika, is gave the soup a good helping of chili powder - about a full tablespoon. Even with a basic pre-packaged salmon from the grocery store, it was fantastic. Definitely a recipe to keep.
