Port And Mushroom Sauce Chicken
Quite delicious and easy to make. The only thing I would add is that if you want the sauce to thicken up and become creamy, you need to add some flour to the sauce before you add the mushrooms. Also, I don't like the flavor of tarragon, so I substituted a sprig of thyme which turned out fine. Served this with balsamic roasted new potatos and brussel sprouts.

Gingerbread Frosting for Cookies
I found this recipe while searching for a spicy frosting that would save my gingerbread cookies from the overwhelming molasses flavor that had turned out. This frosting was great, but still wasn't gingery enough for my molasses flavored gingerbread cookies. So, I pressed a chunk of ginger in my garlic press, mixed in the resulting juice and pulp, and ended up with the perfect balance of spice and heat that made the cookies a hit.

Quick Quiche
Wonderful crustless quiche and easy to adapt. I made this for an office brunch and it was the first thing to go. I used cheddar instead of swiss and added some finely chopped broccoli. It was heavenly!
