Spinach Almond Pesto
I loved this recipe! I just made tiny changes--used a 10 oz bag of fresh spinach, a whole lemon's worth of juice (I love lemon), salt & pepper, and served with with roasted cherry tomatoes and sauteed chicken over flax seed spaghetti. It was a huge hit, VERY easy and quick, and made a large amount. Freezes well, we will definitely be adding this into the rotation!

Chicken Tikka Masala
I definitely cut down on the salt big time. I also substituted part of the cream with yogurt; it gives a bit more of a sour flavor, but it's really good! I also use a big can of tomato sauce (the 26 oz size, I believe, or whatever's closest) and more cream/yogurt mixture. Finally, I use a generous amount of garam masala and occasionally throw in shrimp for the last five minutes. I make this recipe a LOT, it's really good, easy to make, and with my changes it tastes just like the Indian restaurants'...except that I don't add ghee like they do.

Spiced Butternut Squash Soup
LOVE IT! I made this twice in 2 days. My boyfriend, who claims to hate squash and kept saying "I can't promise to like it" can't get enough. I couldn't find sherry at the store so I just went with a half cup of Chardonnay. I also added fresh rosemary. YUM!
