Indian Eggplant - Bhurtha
There are a lot of supposed eggplant haters in my house, so when I made this, I didn't let anyone know what was in it until they tried it. Everyone loved it and all said "can't even taste the eggplant". I made some small changes, I grilled the eggplant (to avoid putting the oven on), added a jalapeno pepper that I had on hand (and we like a lot of heat) and a pinch of garam masala (it just needed a little something more at the end). I served it over some basmati rice with raita sauce. I will definitely be making this again.

Italian Green Bean Chicken
This is a great recipe, nice and light and awesome way to get some extra veggies in. I followed pretty close except I didn't cook my chicken all the way through at first, I browned it then let it simmer in the tomatoes to finish cooking. I also added onions and more garlic and added a couple pinches of crushed red pepper to add a touch of heat. Served over pasta with a bit of parm or feta cheese was a great meal.

Ghirardelli(R) Individual Chocolate Lava Cakes
Made this as New Year's Eve desert. I liked that I could put it together early then pop it in the oven when we were ready for it. Steps were easy to follow and presentation was beautiful. The only issue I ran into was the lava wasn't very lava-like. It didn't flow as I expected. But I think this was my fault as I baked them a little longer than called for. Despite the thick lava, the taste was amazing, everyone asked for more... too bad they were single servings :)
