Chef John's Shrimp and Grits
This was yumbolicious. You really can't go wrong with cream and lemon but the Cajun flavoring took it to another level. I had to use 2 lbs of smaller shrimp and so I doubled the sauce. There ended up being too much sauce so I will adjust that next time. I used the Cajun seasoning recipe from this site. I also had some leftover Andouille sausage that I put in with the bacon. I just realized I never added the fresh garlic, whoopsie. Didn't notice it at all, don't think it's necessary.

Pepper Bread
This recipe has a lot of potential but is pretty bland as is. Of course, there is the punch of the pepper which is great but the rest of the bread is doughy and flavorless. I like the idea of making them as rolls in a 9x13 pan and maybe adding some flavor to the dough. A mix of whole wheat and regular flour might help. Very easy. Upon further review (and eating leftovers!) I need to downgrade this - the bread is really not even worth eating, sorry.

Southwestern Turkey Soup
This was a good base recipe. I made broth with a turkey carcass and then added 2 small cans of crushed tomatoes. I was in a hurry so I didn't add any fresh aromatics but next time I will saute some onion, garlic and jalapeno and add them to the soup. I added 2 limes because I had a lot of broth and I loved the taste of it. Almost like Tom Yam but with a Southwestern flair. The amount of spice called for was not enough so I upped that and added black beans and corn.
