West African Peanut Soup
Oh, so good! Less rice, more hot pepper flakes. Delish! Will pass along to my culinary sister and I will make again and again!

Cauliflower with Dijon Sauce
I cut down on the mayo (and used low fat) and much less cheddar and it was still delicious even though it wasn't swimming in sauce as I imagine it would have been. Husband and I both loved it!

Thai Chicken Pizza with Carrots and Cilantro
I loved this, but my husband found it too spicy, due to the peanut sauce I used. I boiled the chicken breasts and pulled it apart and it worked fine. Very different and delicious!
