Iced Pumpkin Cookies
These were a hit! I love that they are not dense, but very light and fluffy. The only change I made was to use butter-flavored shortening instead of butter. Everything I left exactly as the recipe called for. I will be making these again!

Grilled Tri-Tip with Oregon Herb Rub
This is an excellent rub! The first time I made it exactly as the recipe and it was 5 stars, hands-down the best tri tip I've ever had (and I live in Central CA where Santa Maria Tri Tip reigns supreme!). The second time I made two changes: add 1 tbsp brown sugar and rub the tri tip very lightly with 1/8 tsp worcestershire sauce before applying the rub. Even better!

Quinoa and Black Beans
This was delicious! I had never had quinoa before and this was a great first dish to try it out on. I did add a can of No Salt Diced Tomatoes with Basil, Garlic, and Oregano. Otherwise, kept everything else the same. Definitely will make this again!
