Chicken Pesto Paninis
This combo tastes so perfect together and so easy, my husband could eat them now on a regular basis for lunch! I prefer the provolone cheese, but any kind of white lunch meat and cheese works.

Pumpkin Spiced Latte
I made this like I was making cappuccino. I recommend using vanilla syrup instead of extract because the extract left it feeling like it was missing something; also double the pumpkin pie spice if you like a lot of flavor. It ended up like this: For each individual cup mix 1 cup milk, 2 splenda (what I always use) or sweetener of choice, 1/4 tspn pumpkin spice, 1 Tbsp Vanilla syrup. Froth in cup using steamer. Then add your shot of expresso. Tastes great!!

Chicken Marsala
Me & my husband LOVE italian food! It makes us remember our time we spent in Italy. This dish was amazing! I, like everyone else, made a few adjustments myself. If you want enough sauce to pour over your pasta, you really need to do the following: 1. Add a slurry mix. I mixed about 3-4 Tbsp of cornstarch with about 3/4 cup of cream or thick milk. This adds a creaminess to the sauce as well as thickens it. Otherwise the sauce is more soupy. 2. Add chicken broth. This adds flavor as well as makes a larger amount of sauce. Add both the slurry and broth little by little until you reach the thickness you prefer.
