Chicken Tikka Masala
Made this for the first time for dinner last night. While I enjoy Indian food, I've never made it and was unsure how my family would like it. I followed the suggestions and reduced the salt, added garam masala and doubled up on the sauce. I also used coconut milk instead of heavy cream. The key for me with the sauce was to taste it at every stage to make sure the spice blend was what I wanted. This was delicious. I was looking forward to leftovers for lunch today but there was nothing left. Another plus in my book: we'll be able to enjoy it often since I usually have all the ingredients on hand.

One Bowl Brownies
No more box mix brownies. Hooray! This is a very forgiving recipe. For someone who always insists on scratch baking, I am addicted to box mix brownies. Every time I've made brownies from scratch they're too cake-y and dry. Last night I had a brownies craving and made these, even tho I only had 2 extra large eggs. I cut back the sugar to 1 1/2 cups (something I usually do when baking) and reduced the flour to 3/4 cup. I baked them in an 8x8 pan for 55 min. These were slightly cakier than I like but it was expected due to lacking the 3rd egg. Everyone has a different opinion on the perfect brownie, but this recipe has what it takes for me: crispy, chewy edges and fudgy but firm middle. And ya gotta go with pecans. Looking forward to trying this as written in the future.

Strawberry Shortcake
I made this last night and it is excellent. After reading the reviews, I adjusted the baking powder to 3 tsp and added a bit more shortening plus a dash of vanilla. And while I used 2/3 cup of whole milk, I also added an additional 1/4 cup of cream for added richness. I baked this in a 7X7 square pan for 25 min. The result was a puffed, golden brown shortcake with a rich, slightly sweet flavor. The texture was a poundcake/biscuit hybrid - the perfect base for strawberry shortcake. The shortcake is so good I'm going to have it toasted with butter and a cup of coffee in just a few minutes. Can't wait!
