Strawberry Spinach Salad I
Excellent recipe. I now make the dressing in tupperware and keep it in the fridge to use every day. I substitute the olive oil for sesame oil. I toast the sesame seeds. These steps bring a great nutty flavor to the dressing that I love. I use Splenda instead of sugar. I have tried both minced onion and finely grated onion; it is good both ways. I omit the poppy seeds because I don't see a need for them. Please try it with sesame oil; you will like the results.

Frijoles a la Charra
This had excellent flavor. I will be honest: I used canned beans in a saucepan instead. Either use quality bacon or chop your cheapo bacon up really finely. I worried unnecessarily about the saltiness before I added the beer. I had to cook it longer to reduce the beer down and next time will add just half a bottle. I liked the heat that the pickled jalapenos added to the beans, though I tended to leave all of them at the bottom of my bowl. I liked that the heat did not overpower the dish but was still detectable. I really enjoyed the flavor in these beans. I will make this again.

Buffalo Chicken Dip
I tried this recipe because it had so many good reviews. But, I am not so sure about it. At the party, I put it in my mini slow cooker and put it in the corner. I did not like it at first. Finally, after 3 hours of cooking, it started to not taste or smell funny. I think it was the canned chicken that made it strange, and that just had to cook off. In the end, it tasted okay, but the beginning of it I was sure it was not going to work out well.
