Quinoa with Sweet Potatoes and Broccoli
What a delightful recipe! I halved the recipe, steamed a sweet potato in a bag, used a quarter of an onion (not a fan of onions) and 2 garlic cloves diced fine and sautéed in coconut oil, a dash of ginger and cinnamon and dried cranberries as reviewers suggested, as well as a handful of sliced almonds. I was a little nervous that the onions would still overwhelm, but with the amount I used, it's a lovely, well-rounded dish. I didn't bother with soy sauce; it was good with just a sprinkle of salt. I'd definitely make it again!

Quiche Lorraine I
This was my first attempt at making quiche, and my group of six 20-something friends *really* wished there was more! | Here are my adjustments: replaced bacon with Morningstar Facon strips with little noticeable difference (I'm not vegetarian.) Reduced whipping cream to slightly less than 1.5C. Used green onions, added fresh spinach. Cheese: 1C Swiss, 1/2C Gruyere (TIP: check the deli counter before you fork over for prepackaged gruyere; $4 worth from the deli was more than enough.) I used a standard shallow premade pie crust, so I had about 1/2C filling left over, and it was still a little messy. I ended up adding 3 more eggs to the remnant and using the leftover facon/cream/onions (which I mixed together rather than layering) to make another quiche, which also turned out great. ***Definitely cover the crust with foil after the first 15 min. I didn't for either quiche and the crust/cheese got a bit dark, but not burnt.*** Otherwise, I had no problems with setting; everything was firm and perfect straight out of the oven after the last 30 minutes. Total price for ingredients (I had nothing but salt, sugar and eggs in stock): $35

Easy Pleasy Mac N Cheesy - US Navy Style
Awesome. This was the perfect comfort food/vegetarian option for my dinner party of five adults. For six, I'd probably consider upping it a bit, because there was only a spoonful left in the dish at the end of the evening! I was in a bit of a rush, so I set my oven for 400, cooked everything for 15 minutes and took the foil off for the last 3 minutes and it turned out pretty much perfect. Also, the fried onions on top? Awesome decision. Couldn't ask for a better flavor blend. This is going into our cookbook!
