Quinoa Salad with Dried Fruit and Nuts
I enjoyed this, but had to play with a bit before I felt the "wow" factor. Doubled the lemon and sesame and used chili oil rather than cayenne powder. With a dash of curry this was great with cashews and diced dried apricots. This is one of those recipes that offers a a wonderful "base" for whatever fruits, proteins or herbs you are in the mood for.

Amazing Italian Lemon Butter Chicken
Okay...amazing. One thing, I break sauces like some people break dishes. So my secret is to make roux to bind my sauce and then add the ingredients. A little thicker sauce, but definitely will not break. Sun dried tomatoes are a nice addition and if you want to cut the carbs and up the protein, this recipe is wonderful with quinoa instead of pasta!!!

Bloody Mary Chicken
Just didn't have the intensity of flavor I was hoping for. Followed recipe as directed. Next time will let chicken marinate overnight and perhaps add some balsamic vinegar to help break down the proteins as they cook. I love the concept too much not to try try again.
