Mediterranean Chicken
Frankly I had mixed feelings about this dish. My husband really liked it and thought there was a lot of flavor. I felt I had to make too many changes to give it 5 stars and if I could I would have gone 3 ½. I cut the pieces of chicken into bite sized pieces and grilled them in butter (yeah, I know) and the white wine. I also seasoned the chicken at this point which you really want to do or the flavor is a bit weak even with the sauce. I also used canned tomatoes in their juices as another reviewer recommended. It definitely needed the pepper flakes to give a bit of a kick too. Also, the sauce got too dry as it was simmering so I added more wine as needed. I cut the olives into little pieces too so it would mix well with the other flavors and so I wouldn’t get an entire olive in a bite. They really made the dish. But now that I had this chicken mixture how was I going to serve it? So I took a package of dried vermicelli and browned the noodles in butter. Then I added it to one can of chicken broth. By the time the noodles were done the broth was soaked into it was perfect. I served the chicken mixture over the chicken flavored noodles and it was delicious.

Mom's Fabulous Chicken Pot Pie with Biscuit Crust
This recipe was delicious. I used all the ingredients as listed and used fresh herbs from my garden. For the veggies I used potatoes (precooked) and peas because that's what hubby liked. Halfway thru the meal he stops to take a photo and text it to his friend to brag about it. I make pot pie regularly with leftover chix but this is now my fav. Frankly I think it's the thyme that made the difference. The sauce was unbelievably tasty. The only reason I didn't give it 5 stars is because of the biscuits. I had to cook them until almost overdone to get them cooked on the bottom. Next time I'll do what another reviewer suggested and cut into small strips. Loved it!

Super Summer Salsa
This is amazing! As others suggested I cut the sugar in half. I also popped the vinegar and sugar in the microwave for a few seconds to melt the sugar. My husband suggested adding something to make it kick but I liked it as is. I only used one can of corn so it wasn't overpowering. I wanted to add the cilantro as others suggested but when I went out to my garden to cut some it was already too late in the season. The night before I made a lime and cilantro rice for a side dish. For lunch the next day I put this salsa over the rice and heated. OMG!! It was delicious! What a great recipe you will be able to use a million ways. Loved loved loved it!
