Crispy Chipotle Lime Tilapia with Cool Avocado Sauce
Because avocados are 3 for $1.00 here, I couldn't resist buying a few. Since I had tilapia in the freezer, I searched for recipes using tilapia & avocado. I had everything on hand for this one, so gave it a try. My family's really glad I did. It has a nice kick to it & is easy to make. Do remember to salt & pepper the avocado sauce.

Spinach, Egg, and Pancetta with Linguine
This was wonderful. I used pancetta from a little Italian market around the corner. Claudio sliced it in thin slices. I wasn't sure how that would work but it actually dispersed the meat throughout the pasta better than diced. As some of the other reviewers suggested, I added sliced garlic to the pancetta while it browned. I also added more spinach to the 1/4 tsp. red pepper flakes. My husband agreed that 1/2 tsp. would be too much. Farfalle was our pasta of choice. All those little nooks & crannies held the sauce. A whole pound was perfect. I don't know how 1/4 pound per person would be enough. We didn't need any of the pasta water. The dish was perfect without it. I hate to say it but seconds were in order for both of us. This was a perfect summer night dinner. The pasta with a light salad & French bread was very satisfying. Of course, we can't forget our wonderful Sonoma County wine.

Sweet Potato Pie VII
I have never tasted sweet potato pie. I just happened upon this recipe & decided to try it. Boy, am I glad I did. There were some changes made by other reviewers but I thought it would be nice to see what the original recipe tasted like. It is so good that I couldn't wait to finish breakfast this morning. That pie was calling to me. So, what harm is it to have a little dessert after breakfast? Tonight, we're going to fix dinner for my 90 year old mom. She use to talk about sweet potato pie and how good it was. I can't wait for her to try this.
