Mexican Pumpkin Empanadas
I added some ground cinnamon to the flour mixture like a couple of other reviewers, 5 tsp. of it. I used butter instead of shortening and I used 4 cups of sweet potato that I wanted to use up, instead of pumpkin. Sweet potato and pumpkin taste the same to me anyway. Don't forget the 1/4 tsp of baking powder which is omitted in the directions. When the empanadas first came out of the oven the taste of ginger was over powering, but by the next day the flavors had melded and the flavors were just right.

Linda's Lasagna
Good lasagna. My changes were to add 1 TBSP sugar to counter the acidity. I also added 1 tsp basil and 1 bay leaf and used ricotta instead of cottage cheese. Yum.

Chicken Tikka Masala
Good base recipe, but with changes based upon a few suggestions, it became as good or better than the one at the restaurants. My changes consisted of less salt, and the addition/substitution of garam masala. For the marinade my changes were to only use 1/2 tsp of salt, 1/2 tsp cayenne for less spice, and only 1 tsp cumin because I also added 1 tsp garam masala which already contains cumin. I left the rest of the amounts the same for the marinade. For the sauce my changes were to use only a mere 1/4 tsp salt, and again reduced the cumin to 1 tsp because I added 1-1/2 tsp garam masala. Also, I used 1/2 cup heavy cream, and 1/2 cup of half & half instead of 1 cup heavy cream. I left the other ingredients for the sauce the same. This became restaurant quality or better (depending on the restaurant, of course) it wasn't salty, and the spicyness was a notch over mild.
