Garlic and Leek Ditalini
This is absolutely delicious! Unfortunately, I didn't have any cream or even half & half so I had to use milk but followed the suggestion of another user and added some flour to the leeks/garlic before adding milk. I also doubled the amount of leeks, used about 3 cloves of garlic, and mixed enough cheese just to coat (about 1/3 cup). I will definitely make this again!

Seafood Stuffed Avocados
This was a great starting point for me but I made some changes according to other reviews and my own tastes. I used sushi-grade crab sticks (7 or 8), 6 jumbo shrimp, a shallot, cucumber and an avocado and finely chopped everything. Then, I mixed in some dill weed, cayenne, garlic powder, a little bit of light mayo, and ground black pepper. I also added a splash of light soy sauce and dill pickle juice. After mixing everything, I served it over a bed of chopped romaine lettuce and it was amazing!

Amy's Cilantro Cream Sauce
What a refreshing burst of great flavor! I always have garlic on hand and used 2 cloves instead of garlic powder and substituted ground sea salt for celery salt (only because I didn't have any) and it was great! I spread it on a veggie pita but it would be a great dip as suggested by others
