Curried Cashew, Pear, and Grape Salad
Wow, what a salad! The layers of flavors make the combination mouth-wateringly delicious. I also reduced the olive oil to around 1/4 cup (there's too much dressing for one bag of salad) and subbed dried thyme for rosemary, added a whole sliced pear, and left out the bacon. It was still amazing! I'd leave out the grapes next time, as they seemed unnecessary, or maybe add dried cranberries as someone else suggested. A totally wonderful holiday or winter salad.

Healthy Pumpkin Cranberry Muffins
imo these muffins should be called "low-fat, low-sugar" but that's fine with me as I'm always trying to find healthy ways to eat home-baked treats! I didn't add fresh cranberries as I find them too tart in baked goods (and it's lucky I didn't as these muffins aren't terribly sweet) but I did add orange dried cranberries and they added wonderful flavor. I also added dry roasted slivered almonds and a dab of fresh pureed ginger as I was out of dried, which added some much needed flavor, as well. I think this is a solid base recipe that needs additions/variations so they don't turn out too bland.

Eclair Cake
Yet another fantastic easy cake that looks like you spent hours on it (the other is the coconut "poke cake" on this site, which I highly recommend as well). It's much more delicious than it would seem from the simple ingredients. I agree with reviewers that found the vanilla pudding filling a bit "bland" but then, so is the pastry cream that fills an eclair! But the recipe can be customized and the filling is so delicious and versatile, I'm going to try it with a simple trifle and other fruit desserts.
