Food: How to Substitude Ingredients and This Recipe

I have to admit, I switch up ingredients all the time while preparing a meal. For example – I am allergic to soy, so I use Worcestershire sauce instead. I hate the taste of fish, so I never add fish sauce to any Asian dish. So I was glad to find a list of alternatives here, for ingredients. What have you substituted, and share your experience or other recommendations Here’s a recipe for dinner tonight for the family – spicy eggplant pasta    {featured image source}

Food: Peach Dessert

Got a sweet tooth all of a sudden this mid-day while working on a few chapters of my next novel – and I realized that I had a dozen ripened peaches sitting in the refrigerator. So I clicked over to my favorite recipe site and saw this inspiration – except I wanted to avoid all things flour and too much sugar. So, here’s what happened to the original recipe below. I raced over, well more like, walked over to the neighborhood grocery store and picked up mini-fillo dough cups, and sliced up the peaches, and sautéed in the butter, cinnamon and vanilla – NO SUGAR – and filled up each fillo dough cup and created a near Keto-friendly variation. But you don’t have to  – here’s the original recipe: INGREDIENTS 6 tablespoons butter 1 peach, thinly sliced 4 eggs 2/3 cup whole milk 2/3 cup all purpose flour 2 teaspoons vanilla extract 2 teaspoons ground cinnamon 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt 2 tablespoons granulated sugar whipped cream and maple syrup for serving {more}
