Smokin' Jack BBQ Sauce
We're trying to avoid HFCS so it's very difficult to find bottled BBQ sauce. Well, no need to do that anymore - this recipe is awesome. You can easily adjust the heat and sweet level to suit your taste. I use fresh minced sweet onion and garlic instead of dry. I think it's a little deeper flavor and gives a nice texture to the sauce. Just like the wine I cook with, we use only the whiskey we'd be willing to drink but it's such a small amount that it's totally worth it.

Slow Cooker Pumpkin Turkey Chili
I love pumpkin and I love a hearty, spicy chili. Sadly, the two didn't come together for me here. Chili powder by itself is not 'spicy' and needs more depth of flavor. So this was definitely sweet but didn't have the oomph I was looking for. After the fact I noticed that many reviewers added a lot of different things to get this to their taste. I hate when people give bad reviews after completely changing a recipe so I try to make it at least close to 'as written' and then doctor to my taste. I couldn't make this happen for this recipe. It had an OK flavor but was missing something. If you like sweet chili, this one will work for you.

Thai Noodle Salad
This is a great go-to recipe and can be modified any number of ways to suit your taste. I added a tsp of Sriracha sauce but Thai garlic chile would be the same thing. Doubled the dressing per other suggestions - good call! Note: I make my own Tahini and it's super inexpensive. I buy sesame seeds from a bulk grocer for a few dollars a pound and toast in a cast iron skillet over low heat. Then into the food processor and grind away. Sometimes I add a few drops of sesame oil then store in a jelly jar in the fridge.
