Perfect Pumpkin Pie
For all those negative reviewers out there that complain there is no sugar in the pie, that's what the sweetened condensed milk is for. No, this pie is not very sweet, it actually showcases pumpkin, not sugar. I will say I do tweak the recipe slightly, only because I like LOTS of spice in my pie. I double just about everything except the nutmeg and I add plenty of cloves, to me it just isn't pumpkin pie without cloves. For those who complained that the pie is grainy, you didn't beat the ingredients together thoroughly. Same with the people who said a skin formed on top. You really have to beat the heck out of this but when you do it's a great pie.

Hot Artichoke and Spinach Dip II
This is a decent starting point but needs work. First, ditch the basil, it just tastes odd. You can use a decent Italian seasoning blend but go lightly, or just use marinated artichoke hearts and drain really well. Second, no garlic salt, just use fresh chopped garlic, and pump it up to about 3 cloves worth. Saute the garlic plus about 2Tbsp shallots in a good, dry white wine until very soft. Yes, it needs to be wine. The alcohol will burn off for the paranoid out there, but the flavor will remain. Next, dump all the cheese except a sprinkling of the Parmesan into the pan with the shallots and garlic and let it all melt together (very low heat please) and combine. It is REALLY thick so I use both mayo AND sour cream to loosen it up. 1/4c each, add the green stuff next and stir to incorporate and THEN dump it into your baking dish. sprinkle with the little bit of Parmesan you kept back and bake till bubbly. If you're into that sort of thing you can add stuff to this base also. I like some sliced black olives sometimes, or a bit of diced roasted red pepper. I've even added lump crab meat and crawfish tails a few times. Granted, it's not really "spinach artichoke dip" if you do that, but it still tastes yummy!

Curry Stand Chicken Tikka Masala Sauce
Oh my God, this recipe is AMAZING exactly as written, tastes like what comes out of my favorite Indian takeaway. I wouldn't change a thing and I will be making a huge batch to freeze so I can have this as an easy dinner on work nights. Even my curry hating husband likes it. Win!!
