Crispy-Skin Salmon on Potato Mushroom Salad
Second time's a charm. I have made this twice. The first time I made it just as written, except I broiled the salmon instead of pan cooking it. We did not like the contrast of cold tomatoes with the hot potatoes and fish. We also thought the potatoes and fish needed a little more sauce. I would give it 4 stars as written. The second time, I tweaked things more to our preferences. I broiled the salmon as before. I doubled the tomato marinade and used it to sauté the tomatoes. I then poured it over the potatoes, mushrooms and salmon. 5 stars and company level taste!

Orzo and Shrimp Salad with Asparagus
I know- I know- Everyone hates to have reviews on recipes that have been changed! However, if my changes will guide someone else, here goes! Instead of making this a pasta salad, I treated this like a stir fry. I made no changes to the ingredients, except to sub leftover brown rice for the orzo and increasing the basil and sauce to our taste. No orzo in the house that day. I stir fried the shrimp, garlic, onions and asparagus. When cooked through, I added the lemon/vinegar/mustard sauce (I increased the sauce slightly). Served with the rice. From start to finish it all took about 15 minutes and got rave reviews all around. Next time I will try the recipe as written. It must be wonderful.

Spicy Egg Salad English Muffins
Thanks for a breakfast recipe that is quick enough for every day and special enough for a company brunch. I chopped the bacon into the egg mixture and mixed in the cheese rather than sprinkling it on top. My husband added a bit of green taco sauce to his, but he really likes things spicy. Next time I might replace the hot sauce with taco sauce.
