Thai Curry Soup
To get closest to the Noodles version, use full-fat coconut milk, a couple of tomato wedges and some shaved purple onion. Even without those changes, this is a 5-star recipe; make it, and you will think you took yourself out for Thai food. Note that neither the noodles nor the shrimp re-heat well; if you are going to have leftovers, cook only the shrimp you need. Save the remaining broth and add fresh shrimp and fresh noodles when you eat it.

Megan's Granola
Great basic granola recipe with lots of flexibility. To make 1/2 a recipe, you need 4 cups oats, 1-1/2 c. wheat and/or oat bran, 1/2 cup honey and/or maple syrup, 2 cups of nuts and/or sunflower seeds, 3/4 tsp salt, 1/2 c. vegetable, coconut or other oil, 1/2 Tbs cinnamon, 1/2 Tbs vanilla and 1 cup dried fruit. Add 1/4 cup of brown sugar to taste. I generally use honey rather than maple syrup since I couldn't detect any maple flavor and the honey is much cheaper. Also I cannot recommend some of the water-based substitutions I've seen in other reviews such as applesauce, water and maple flavor (??) - you are making many servings of granola and the oil fills an important purpose.

Tortellini Soup I
Very good flavor, although tortellini, zuccini and peppers would have been very overcooked if simmered for 45 minutes as written. A better process would be to cook the tortellini separately and combine just before serving, and cook vegetables only until crisp-tender. If you do cook the pasta in the soup, you should cook it no more than the time listed on the package (in my case, only 12 - 15 minutes).
