Lemony Garlic Shrimp with Pasta
Followed the recipe except for brining the shrimp due to time constraints. I just patted dry after thawing and salted them... Adding more salt to taste after mixing everything together. As long as you don't overlook the shrimp, this seems like a fail safe, easy recipe... with results that wowed everyone! I used thin spaghetti and a Pinot Grigio for the wine and a bit more garlic than called for. Perfect. Lovely for company.

Restaurant-Style Coleslaw I
with minor adjustments to suit my tastes, this is hands down THE best coleslaw... EVER. I've made this countless times and every time everyone raves and my kids ask for seconds and even thirds (weird!). I decrease the sugar to a 1/4 cup and leave out the milk- I hate soupy coleslaw and it just isn't necessary. Everything else I leave the same (using light mayo- Hellmans/Best Foods), and sometimes forget to add the onion. We love to eat it both freshly made (crispier, yum) or up to 3 days old. The longer it sits the more the salt will draw out the water from the cabbage- I ust pour off the excess water before stirring. Delicious! Thanks for the awesome recipe!

Pumpkin Pancakes
followed this recipe, except for slightly upping the cinnamon and ginger, and added an extra tablespoon of brown sugar for personal preferences. OUTSTANDING! I portion it out with a large ice cream scooper- it made 15 pancakes. Perfect with a bit of maple syrup, and my kids like to put chocolate chips on top instead. I've tried a lot of pumpkin pancakes and they are either too heavy, mushy, or they don't have enough flavor. These are light and fluffy with great texture and flavor... make them NOW! :)
