Butternut Squash Bisque
Definitely roast squash first! I just prick mine with a fork and bake it until it is soft, then let it cool, slice it in half and scoop out seeds, then peel it. Time will vary depending on size of squash. You can also do this is the microwave, but it is not as easy to peel as the skin gets very soft. I make mine vegan by substituting vegan butter, no-chicken better than bouillon, and... here's the secret.... silken tofu at the end instead of cream! It adds protein as well as a nice creamy consistency. I also add garlic, and sometimes a sweet potato if my squash is small. My family LOVES this! It's also my go-to recipe for friends that are sick. It was the only thing that tasted good and could be kept down by a dear friend undergoing chemo. Plus it is healthy, gluten-free, vegan, and full of great vitamins as well as protein with the added tofu!

Ranch Crispy Chicken
I cut mine up into "chicken finger" size after pounding the chicken to tenderize it. I also didn't have the ranch dressing mix, but had creamy light ranch dressing. I coated the chicken in the dressing and then dipped it in the bread crumbs. Really like the flavor. Would be better fried (what isn't) but I will bake it again next time for the health benefit.

Clam Fritter Snacks
I added a little bit of the reserved clam juice until the consistency was good.. otherwise it would have been too dry. Not a lot of flavor. Will try again and add some minced onions and salt and a dash of old bay seasoning.
