Hot Sweet Onion Dip
I love this dip; I'm making it right now. To reduce the greasiness, I use half real sour cream (not fat free)and half real Hellman's mayo. I also add about 4 turns of my pepper and salt mills. To reduce onion smell/tears while I'm making this, I put the cheese in a mixing bowl, season it with salt and pepper and stir it up with my hands, add the sour cream/mayo mixture and stir everything up well, and THEN cut the onions and quickly fold them into the cheese/mayo/sour cream mixture. I also like the recipe as is and I am really thankful to adodd for posting it--so delicious! Great with bread, crackers, and even Doritoes. I simply can't imagine making this with anything but real mayo--I never touch lite or reduced fat mayo, and I would certainly never make this with miracle whip because it seems like the flavor would be off. The sour cream reduces the greasiness without changing the flavor base. Thanks again!

Chicken Tikka Masala
Delicious dish. This was my first experiment with Indian food and it turned out perfectly. I read the reviews before I made the dish. As others suggested, I doubled the sauce recipe, used garam masala instead of cinnamon, and used salt only to taste. When I prepared the chicken for the marinade, I dusted all of the pieces with additional cumin, salt and pepper, and garam masala before adding to the yogurt mixture. I also baked the chicken in the oven after swirling each piece of chicken in the marinade to gather as much of it onto every piece that I could. I only had time to marinate for one hour, and it was excellent. I omitted the ginger, cinnamon, and jalapeno. I served this with rice and it was hard for us to stop eating it! I love it when I experiment with recipes that are easy, delicious, and make me feel like an expert chef. Thank you so much Yakuta.
