Fast and Easy Creamed Spinach
Best creamed spinach I ever had, and I love creamed spinach! It actually TASTED like spinach, novel idea :) Very easy to make and for the first time, I would change nothing in a recipe. Well I correct that - I would double it as it wasn't enough! But seriously, this is enough to barely serve 4. Everyone wanted more but just not enough. Enjoy!

World's Best Pasta Sauce!
Yes, excellent recipe and easy to customize! I made it as is with one modification: I added a dry red wine instead of water because I really felt water would dilute it too much. I also cooked it in a slow cooker (prepared as is, then transferred to a slow cooker for 4 hours). The taste was very flavorful without being overbearing and perfectly thick. I am not a fan of fennel but the small amount compliments the sausage really well. Next time, I will add bay leaves (not sure it "needs" it), mushrooms and try ground turkey as oposed to ground beef.

Red Quinoa and Avocado Salad
Fantastic! Made it as is, and it was very good - 4.5 stars as written. But I made a couple of slight tweaks to really add that little extra: - Extra 1T lime juice - Extra 1/8t of cumin - Add 1/8t garlic powder To me, that added the extra "dressing" and tiny extra punch that made this out of this world! On a side portion, I also mixed in a bit of oil/balsamic as other suggested, but I thought that confused the taste of the lime/cumin. It was still good, but a bit off. Will add this to my staples, SOOOO easy to make especially with cooked quinoa at the ready!
