Curried Zucchini Soup
I had some zucchinis that were on their way out and I needed to use them quickly. I made a few tweaks to this recipe and it was amazing (I'm sure it would've been without changes too though). I didn't have chicken stock so I used 2tbsp of chicken bouillon powder and instead of water I used a can of coconut milk. I also doubled the curry powder and added 4 flags cloves of garlic that I cooked down withthe onion for extra flavor. The coconut milk made it creamy and balanced out the curry perfectly so it had a nice heat but wasn't overwhelming. This can be eaten hot or cold and toasted nuts on top give it an added bonus.

Cinnamon Coffee Cake II
I never thought you could have the coffee cake flavor without the coffee, but as I eat this cake, I'm at least reminded of a coffee cake and I guess that's the idea. I took another reviewer's suggestions and instead of oil used a half cup of unsweetened apple sauce and a half cup of apple butter. The cake came out SO moist, that I'm sure it could've stayed in the oven a few minutes longer than 30 minutes. Also, before I sprinkled the crumble layers I scattered a handful of milk chocolate chips and I think that it added a nice little surprise to each slice of cake. Also, I only had a 1oz pack of butterscotch pudding so I used 3 1.5oz packs of vanilla pudding and the 1oz of butterscotch. I think it's delicious and I'm sure my coworkers will think so too! Next time I might throw in a few tsps or tbsps of coffee grounds and let them steep in some hot water and use that instead of the cup of water, just to give it that extra coffee kick!

Pineapple Cranberry Chicken
I thought this was really delicious. I brined the chicken overnight (like I usually do because the chicken maintains moisture that way). I ended up reserving some of the cranberry/pineapple mixture and I was really happy I did because I felt that when it was cooked it didn't maintain the sweetness as much. Also, I threw a few cheddar cheese curds over the top when I took of the cover and that just put the delicious factor over the edge! I'm always a fan of cheese and fruit! Thanks for giving me a way to use my left over thanksgiving cranberry sauce!
