Pan-Seared Ahi Tuna with Blood Orange Sauce
THIS WOULD HAVE GOT 5 STARS, BUT THE COOKING TIME IS WAY WAY OFF! THE TIME TO SEAR A ONE TO ONE AND 1/2 INCH STEAK IS ABOUT 1 MINUTE ON EACH SIDE. ANY LONGER AND YOU MIGHT AS WELL USE A CAN OF STARKIST AND CALL IT A DAY...THE SAUCE HOWEVER IS A KEEPER!

Pecan Surprise Pie
This was superb! The "cheesecake" layer is perfect to balance out the gooey sweetness of a pecan pie. I will be making it like this from now on! I took this as the desert to a family gathering, and the compliments kept coming. Also was asked for the recipe by everyone there! I made this on the spur of the moment and only had 1/2 a cup of pecans, so I used chopped walnuts for the rest and it was still delicious! (In fact, no one even realized it was mostly walnuts until I passed out the recipe!) Thanks for the great recipe, it's a definitely a keeper! And a tip for getting a good bottom crust without having to pre-bake is to always use a glass or ceramic dish, stay away from the aluminum pans...

Spanish Rice II
Very good! And very simple. I did substitute a can of low sodium chicken broth for the water, added a little chopped garlic, and used a can of Rotell Fiesta flavor tomatoes with cilantro and lime juice. I made fajitas and served this as a side dish topped with Mexican blend cheese and sliced olives, and I should have doubled the recipe! It was gone in a flash! This one is a keeper! So easy and taste BETTER than the rice in most restaurants! Thanks!
