Greek Lemon Chicken Soup
This was easy to make vegetarian and also easy to simplify for weeknights. I made a half batch, used vegetable broth, 1 tablespoon of a vegetarian soup base (but I really think it's optional), skipped the chicken meat and also skipped the slices of lemon. I reduced the egg yolks from 4 to 3.

Chocolate Cupcakes with Caramel Frosting
I woke up at 6am this morning with a desperate craving for chocolate cupcakes (yes, I'm pregnant!). I did a quick search and decided to try this recipe. As I was measuring I discovered I was almost out of sugar so I ended up using 1/2 cup sugar + 12 packets of splenda which is the recommended substitute amount. I also added an extra tablespoon of jam - strawberry because that's what I had on hand. The result is amazing! Light and fluffy and tastes delicious. I skipped the frosting because I figured I'm already getting more than enough calories for breakfast here :) I was so distracted by the jelly in the recipe that I completely missed that it had mayonnaise until I was halfway through. If I'd noticed I might have skipped this recipe, but I'm so glad I didn't!

Vegetarian Meatloaf with Vegetables
This recipe was great! My vegetarian husband has never had meatloaf, and since it's one of my favorite foods I have been wanting to make him some for years. I finally tried it with this recipe and I am so glad that I did! It is now one of his new favorite foods and it's so good that even I didn't miss the meat at all. It was kind of crumbly, but my regular meatloaf can be like that too sometimes so I'm not too bothered by it. I made some changes based on what I could find in the store and to make it a little closer to my normal recipe. I substituted Sausage flavored Gimmie Lean. I used 1 1/2 cups crushed cheezits crackers instead of bread cubes. I left out the sage and pepper and increased the garlic a little. I used ketchup on the outside instead of tomato sauce, and mixed in a squirt of ketchup into the mix too. I also cooked it without the roasted veggies because I didn't have space in the pan - I served it with mashed potatoes and a salad instead.
