Brussels Sprouts in a Sherry Bacon Cream Sauce
Amazing. I was given some fresh brussel sprouts and made this recipe last minute with what I had on hand. I didn't have any shallots or cremini mushrooms, though I did substitute button mushrooms. It might be the best vegetable dish I have ever eaten. It's earned a place on the Thanksgiving dinner menu. Thanks for sharing!

African Chicken Stew
AMAZING. I did alter the recipe due to what I had on hand, e.g. carrots, celery, red and green pepper, sweet potato, cayenne pepper rather than red pepper flakes, and chicken broth rather than water. I also marinated the chicken in a lemon juice marinade beforehand. I tasted the stew after 1/2 c. peanut butter (crunchy) and decided that was enough for my personal preference. However, the peanut butter taste seemed to mellow a bit overnight, so next time I will go ahead and add the full 3/4 cup. My husband, who does not necessarily enjoy trying new dishes, LOVED it. We are actually fighting over the leftovers. I am planning to make a vegetarian version for a pitch-in at work. Thanks for sharing!

Dip For The Stars
My cousin made this for a baby shower we recently hosted. It was fabulous, definitely the best item on the buffet. I believe the only substitution was vodka for vermouth. Great recipe, thanks for sharing.
