Kale Puttanesca
This is an excellent, economical and easy weeknight dinner option! We love kale/greens and have been aiming to have at least one meat-free dinner per week. I made this last night and it is definitely making it on the rotation! As written, the salty items may have been overpowering... I used just less than half the anchovies and capers called for and about 2 Tbsp of chopped kalamata olives. Like many other reviewers, I increased the kale - about 7 Cups - and sauteed it first in the onion/garlic/anchovies/capers before adding the tomatoes and a splash of dry white wine. I also used a half cup or so of the cooking water when adding the pasta to create a bit more "sauce". I used a protein-added whole grain pasta to truly make this a one-dish meal. Thanks so much for this idea and recipe!

Pumpkin Chipotle Soup
I have just made the soup base for dinner tonight, and am very pleased so far... Super fast and a wonderfully rich and smoky flavor. I also subbed chicken stock and used frozen squash puree in place of the canned pumpkin. I have left out the cream for now, but plan to strain the soup and stir in about half a cup of heavy cream just before serving. With cool and creamy avocado and cilantro on top -like another reviewer suggested- this will be a delight!

Peanut Clusters Chocolate Cookie
Perfect quick-fix for a sweet tooth. I did not have evaporated milk, so I used half and half; also had to substitute brown sugar for the white. Even so, these no-bakes set up beautifully and we really enjoyed them. Thank you!
