Low Carb Cauliflower Leek Soup
This soup is a great light dinner, if it's for 1 or 2 people, there's plenty of leftovers to take to work for lunch! Low-carb, low-calorie, can be low fat depending on your use of heavy cream. I've made this twice, and I've made a few enhancements I think bring more flavor without adding anything unhealthy: -Roast the cauliflower in the oven - set the broiler to 500, break cauliflower into florets and place on baking sheet; spray with cooking spray and place on 2nd rack from the top. Roast until tips have a nice amount of browning (not burning!) and it's soft (doesn't need to be tender - it will finish cooking in the soup). Roasting enhances the final color of the soup as well. -Roast a thickly sliced shallot with the cauliflower, and add to the soup. -Add a yellow (can use sweet) onion to the pot when sauteeing leeks. -Saute some spices with the leeks/onions - I added fresh ground pepper, ground red pepper, and garam masala (an indian spice) for a bit of smokiness. Experiment! This soup BEGS for spices! -Try half&half or lowfat sour cream spooned over each serving. Tastes just as good. -Garnish each bowl with some thinly sliced chives and a thin drizzle of olive oil. In all, a good soup, and my first time working with leeks - but use it as the foundation of introducing some spices or fresh herbs you particularly like - it's a little under-seasoned as-is.

Chicken Tikka Masala
The spices in this recipe look wrong... it's missing garam masala, turmeric, tomato paste, curry leaves. Gordon Ramsay's Chicken Tikka Masala recipe seems more authentic...

Sausage Crescent Rolls
My girlfriend makes this for me all the time. She calls it "Breakfast In A Banket". If you wanna spice it up a little, she sometimes adds a can of drained and rinsed Rotel. Very Tasty!
