Threw together a new dinner meal the other night. Had some frozen chicken breasts, was in the mood for rice and as I stood in my kitchen, thinking "What to make? What to make?", I felt an inspiration for "Island Chicken". What's that, you ask? Well, to me, it was fresh,… MORE

I've become skilled at thinking up new dinner recipes, using other recipes as a jumping off point. I'm good at developing flavor profiles that work.

Southwest White Chicken Chili
This was OK... although it was flavorful, it didn't taste like chili to me... no kick or spiciness. Next time, I would add minced garlic and much more spices, including some red pepper flakes or cayenne pepper. I guess many here found the same thing as quite a few people are suggesting to add to the seasonings.

Spinach and Strawberry Salad
I made this for a family holiday party, picking it because it sounded healthy and because it was mainly green & red... and it was a huge hit, even with family members who usually turn their noses up at my healthy vegetable contributions. It was really delicious!

Spicy Mango Sweet Potato Chicken
This was excellent! I never just make a recipe as is because I love to experiment, so I added some chopped fresh spinach, quartered grape tomatoes from my garden and a handful of chopped walnuts a minute or two before serving. And I made this with turkey breast, rather than chicken. Also, though I like spicy food, 3 T. of hot sauce + red pepper flakes seemed a bit much, so I used a bit under 1 T. hot sauce... delicious! Oh yes, I served it on red quinoa cooked in a little chicken broth.
