Chicken with Quinoa and Veggies
This is a great recipe. I too did a lot of substitutions. I used baby spinach (about half bag) in place of the scapes. I used a can of diced tomatoes instead of fresh. Omitted the onion, doubled the zucchini, and used around 1/2 t dried basil instead of fresh.

Moroccan Tagine
I made this with sweet potatoes in place of squash. The chicken seemed superfluous, the next time I make it, I think I will just omit it.

Ghirardelli(R) Individual Chocolate Lava Cakes
This recipe was super easy! I just used 60% caco chips and only needed one bag. First off if I make it again, I would use about 50% more of the filling recipe. I used a cookie scoop (2 tsp size) to make the balls. With the original recipe, I had enough to make 5 easy scoops and for the sixth one I just used what was left and took a little from each ball. Also if I make it again, I would squish the balls to make them flatter. As balls, they poked out of the batter a bit and I just covered them up before baking. Turned out okay, but I think they would have been better if a little flatter instead of balls. After I made the balls, I put them in the freezer. The batter was very easy to make and I just used a large muffin tin. Filed it about 1/2 full and it went up to 3/4 full with the filling. I coated the tin in shortening and coca powder, and the cakes came out easily after going around the edges with a knife. Also too, I didn't have cake flour so I used all purpose, took out 1/2 T and put in 1/2 T cornstarch. Shifted it twice to incorporate the cornstarch. I also just microwaved everything. Overall, just a easy recipe and very pleasing for a dessert.
