Sweet and Spicy Green Beans
Wow, I don't think I've had better tasting green beans! I had already started making this when I realized I didn't have honey and so used agave, and was out of garlic chili sauce (dang!) so I subbed Patak's mild curry paste. It's the closest thing I had! I added some minced garlic to compensate and couldn't resist adding some fresh minced ginger that I happened to have. It may sound like I made a lot of changes but I think it's essentially pretty close in flavor to the recipe: sweet, spicy, garlicky. In any case, I can't wait to make this again. It was divine!

Pumpkin Pasta
This was amazing. I combined several other reviewer's ideas such as starting with finely chopped onions sauteed in butter. I used soy milk (because that's what we have) and added a splash of heavy cream that was on hand. I subbed sage for the pie spices, which made the flavor more savory. I didn't make a roux but stirred a tsp of potato starch (we're gluten free) into about 1/4 cup of chicken broth, then added it to the simmering sauce. It didn't get thick but added some body. When I combined the sauce with the brown rice pasta I used, the pasta soon absorbed the sauce and it looked a lot like mac and cheese. I also totally spaced out adding parmesan, but the result was still fantastic. It's probably just as good made as directed but I gotta say, I LOVE a recipe that can be successfully modified. Next time I will sauté asparagus and mushrooms to go with it. Thanks ConnorsMom, I'll be making this a lot!

Smokin' Scovilles Turkey Chili
We loved this! I didn't have the hot chocolate mix or liquid smoke so I compensated with some smoked pepper flakes and sriracha sauce, as well as chopped roasted green chile which is local to us in New Mexico. Taco seasoning is a good substitute for the spices, if needed. I made it a second time using sautéd tofu instead of ground turkey and it still rocked. I love a recipe that is "tweak-able" and works with variations. Thanks Jimbolya, for a keeper!
