Blackened Salmon Fillets
Wonderful recipe and not too spicy with my personal modifications! Took the advice of previous reviewers and: cut cayenne in half, added 1Tbsp garlic powder, used olive oil instead of butter. I drizzled oil and seasoned both sides of the salmon. Placed in my broiler @525 degrees for 13 minutes and it was done! I did not flip it over. No muss, no fuss! The longest part of this recipe is mixing the spices which I plan to make a large batch of for future use. Definite addition to the dinner rotation!

Marinated Baked Pork Chops
Well, this was just ok for my family. I followed the recipe exactly, except I tripled the sauce and added onion pwd and S&P. The sauce tasted like the ketchup mixture I put on top of my meatloaf (ketchup, b.sugar, worchestire...yep!) I had high hopes due to the high ratings and large # of reviews, but I won't make these again.

Fantastic Black Bean Chili
Great recipe! My review will sound redundant, but here I go: 2-14oz cans of crushed tomato (there is NO way you can do this recipe with 1 can!), 1lb ground turkey, no fresh onion/garlic so I used onion/garlic powder, only had 2 cans blk beans so I used 1 can kidney beans ILO of the 3rd can, used balsamic vinegar b/c I didn't have red wine vinegar, used 1 can corn. I added Montreal seasoning/onion and garlic powders, few dashes of cumin and chili pwd to meat mixture. Added to a large pot and dumped all the cans in. Added the seasoning (easy on the chili pwd b/c of my 3-yr old, easy on the oregano b/c I think it is a potent spice). Simmered for about 40 minutes. Still needed some umph, so added more salt, fresh ground blk pepper, and 3 dashes of ground red pepper. Simmered a little longer and then let set for 20 minutes. My daughter and husband devoured it! Served with Jiffy mix cornbread with 1/2 can creamed corn, 1 tsp of baking powder, and honey squeezed on top. Will definitely move this into my winter dinner rotation!
