Ham & Cheese Pretzel Bites. More fussiness to do from scratch, but yay, homemade pretzel dough. Tip: if it's not a dairy-based pretzel dough, the same boil-then-bake process with a water-based dough (like Trader Joe's prefab pizza dough, hint hint) becomes BAGEL. Bagels and pretzels are first cousins -- so you can snack in the family without spending a day in the kitchen.

Spicy Parmesan Shrimp Skillet. The only thing I changed with this one was I added a lot more red pepper and I used shells instead of penne pasta, because that's what I had. But with the shells, it was like there was too much pasta and not enough marinade. So next time, I think I'll make some more of the marinade. And use penne. Lol. Still an awesome meal, though. :)
