Banana-Walnut Pancakes with Caramel Topping
i made some serious adjustments... but they were yummy, so i'll give the recipe 5 spoons :)
i used 1.5 cups mix and 1 cup water to not make as many. i didn't measure the banana, just mashed up 1 medium-sized ripe one. i also used 1/4 cup frozen blueberries instead of the walnuts... and then i topped with syrup rather than carmel sauce/nuts. this way we got fruit AND fiber in our breakfast!!
i froze the leftovers in between waxed paper - i would guess a bit in the toaster or microwave would make for an easy hot breakfast in the future.

Ham and Cheese Tortilla Roll-Ups (lighter recipe)
I used shredded Mexican Blend cheese (since I didn't have cheddar on hand) and added some chopped orange bell pepper (since it was about to go bad in my fridge). I also used a package of 6 FlatOut Flatbread Wraps instead of 10 tortillas, so they turned out larger and with lots of fiber and protein. I served with chips and salsa, and it was a great, quick recipe using ingredients that I usually have on hand (and, clearly, easily adjustable)! Great for between grocery runs.

Thai Seared Shrimp with Tomato, Basil and Coconut
This is the first time I've tried cooking Thai food, and it was a success! I, too, agree that it could have used a bit more kick (especially since I used regular diced tomatoes, not spicy ones). Was very easy to make - the hardest part was peeling the shrimp :) I served it over rice, so it made for a full meal.
