French Crepes
This was a great recipe. It was simple to make and my family loved them. I added a teaspoon of powdered sugar and a half teaspoon of vanilla for a bit of a sweeter taste. It was a bit better than the first batch I made following the recipe exactly. The consistency of the batter was great and the crepes cooked up well. This is my crepe recipe from now on.

Coconut Chicken
I really liked this recipe as a base. I bought some coconut for another recipe and needed to find another way to use it up. This worked. I of course pounded the chicken out so that it cooks quicker and stays moister. I used flax as an egg replacer and mixed it with the soy sauce and lemon instead of lime. I mixed the marinade in with the flax to coat the chicken and just used panko/coconut to coat. The breading adhered beautifully. I used sour cream instead of mayo and added a bit of soy sauce to the coconut cream sauce topping. It was not bursting with taste but had a very pleasant and mild coconut flavor. I probably won't make the recipe again because my kids didn't care for it. More for an adult palette.

Turkey and Quinoa Meatloaf
First thing I heard from the kids when I told them I was making meatloaf was "ew gross!" Ummmm.... They flipping LOVED it!!! All my girls cleared their plates. I adjusted the recipe as follows: left out the onions and garlic because I didn't have them on hand. I used 1/2 cup of quinoa rather than 1/4 cup. I believe it made the loaf firmer. I added garlic salt and some beef seasoning rub that I had on hand and used franks red hot in place of the chile sauce. I added about 2tablespoons of tomato paste to the glaze and cooked to melt the brown sugar. It tasted like homemade BBQ sauce. All in all this was a hit at my house. The loaf was nice and light and felt pretty healthy. I WILL DEFINITELY MAKE THIS ONE AGAIN!
