Asparagus Mushroom Bacon Crustless Quiche
I have to admit that I messed with this recipe a lot, but I would have never thought of combining asparagus, mushrooms and bacon in a quiche. This is how I use up the asparagus that's always leftover because I'm the "only one who likes it!" So I use a can of crescent rolls to line a square, 2-qt baking dish as the crust. Then I fry up the bacon, drain the fat and toss in the chopped leftover asparagus to coat with flavor. I use 6 eggs and 1 can evaporated milk. This has fast become a favorite meal of even the asparagus-hater in the house! Thanks for the inspiration.

Tangerine Cherry Cranberry Sauce
This was a huge hit, even with someone who doesn't like traditions messed with! I was sure he would turn his nose up and wonder where's the cranberry sauce, but he raved about this version. I didn't have a tangerine so I used orange juice and skipped the zest. My only criticism is that by the time the sauce cooked, I couldn't find the cloves to remove. No one else mentioned finding any but I did in a bite of intense clovey-ness. I think next time I may use ground clove to avoid that issue. But thanks Chef John for another fabulous recipe that's now a permanent addition to my holiday table!

Spicy Pumpkin and Sweet Potato Soup
OMG this recipe was exactly what I was looking for. I didn't have a pumpkin but did have most of a can of puree leftover that I wanted to use up. Also didn't have most of the whole spices but did have ground versions and it all came together in a melange of orange deliciousness. I ate almost half the pot by myself, topped with crisp bacon and blue cheese crumbles as I'd seen recommended in a similar recipe. This one is definitely a keeper and I can't wait to see how the flavors have developed when I have the rest of it for dinner tonight!
