Peppered Shrimp Alfredo
Made it as written, except for doubling the shrimp. FAN-tastic! Grandpa said, "This is better than what you get at an Italian restaurant." To which my husband replied, "Well, it's definitely better than Olive Garden ..." But I think my husband was in a bad mood, so I'm taking Grandpa's assessment and running with it. I ponied up for a real nice jar of alfredo sauce, so I do think that's important. I served with spinach linguine and it made for a colorful, restaurant-quality (according to my dad, bless him) presentation. Great recipe, thanks!

Asian Glazed Chicken Thighs
My husband -- who hates chicken with an unnatural passion the likes of which one only expects to encounter in relation to the usual suspects: anchovies, liver, random Kardashians, and the like -- THAT guy had this to say of this recipe: "Wow. That's good chicken. And you know it pains me to say that." And THEN, my 11 y.o. kid ate an unprecedented THREE servings of a non-dessert-related dish. It was like I won the Mom Olympics tonight. Got recruited on the Chinese team and plain won that thing. Many thanks for the recipe. I didn't have the fancy Chinese chili, so I used run-of-the-mill chili powder. Also, I put a broil on the last few minutes to give it a bit of edge. Apparently, it was all magic.

Maple Glazed Chicken with Sweet Potatoes
Loved this. Expected to hate it (I'm not a maple fan), but I loved it -- and so did my picky 10 year-old. I made as directed, with these exceptions: (1) I didn't have green onions, so I used white onions and simmered them in the oil with the chicken. The carmelized onion was delicious. And, (2) I didn't have the Montreal Steak Seasoning, so I made my own (Google "Montreal Steak Seasoning recipe" for some excellent recipes!). A hearty, flavorful family dinner. Thanks for posting!!!
