Spinach Basil Pesto
This is EXCELLENT!!! Stuck with the recipe as is and it turned out tremendous!! I love pesto, but this was great because adding the spinach made it a bit mellower. My wife and I are HUGE lemon fans (it's in my Alfredo sauce) and the lemon and zest are a perfect compliment.

Louisiana Shrimp Creole II
This is a classic recipe, but I agree with other reviewers that it needs a bit more herbal seasoning. I added some oregano, thyme, and rosemary, along with a bit of Old Bay and smoked paprika. And the suggestion to make a stock of the shrimp shells really boosted the shrimp flavor. I used flour instead of cornstarch and petite diced tomatoes w/some tomato paste. I haven't yet been able to duplicate my mother's, but this is the closest I've come.

Thai-Style Peanut Sauce with Honey
This was fantastic just as it is with only one slight wife and I like spicy and rather than add crushed red peppers, I added Sriracha (chili sauce). Used this for a vegetable stir fry over udon noodles and it was GREAT!!!

Pile it into a tomato half, load it into a wrap, or spread it on bread. Chicken salad does it all.

Broccoli salad makes a great side dish or a light main dish on a warm night.
