Authentic Chicken Tikka Masala
I cheated with this recipe as I had some pre-cooked chicken I just threw in. To compensate I added a couple tablespoons of yogurt to the final mixture. We liked this version of Tikka Masala, not as much as our local restaurant. I only had ground cumin and it was just overwhelming (to my tastes) so I definitely would cut it down next time. In addition, I used evaporated milk instead of cream and it took the whole can to make an actual sauce. The restaurant version is much sweeter, so if I try again I may add some sugar or something to the sauce. But for my first try at Indian everyone was pretty pleased!

Sweet Russian Cabbage Soup
Yum. This is so good! And easy. I kept it pretty close to the original recipe, subbing brown sugar and cutting it down, also. I didn't have cloves, so I used a little garlic powder. Also, I couldn't believe the calorie and fat content quoted for the original.....I sauteed up ground turkey separately from the soup and used that. I think putting the ground beef in the soup raw is a mistake. Absolutely delicious and the cabbage-hating husband even liked it! Go figure...

Chocolate Chip Cheesecake Dip
Always a popular offering! And so easy! The only thing I changed was to only put 1/4 stick of butter in it; a whole stick just sounded like overkill. Had requests for the recipe. Thanks!
