Barbie's Tuna Salad
I love tuna fish and this was a nice spin on an old favorite. I've now made this recipe a couple of times and I double up on the curry because I love the flavor that it adds. I use fresh onion to taste mainly because I didn't have any onion flakes the first time, but then I found I preferred the minced raw onion. I used a bit more then a pinch of garlic and I also didn't use as much mayo because it was just to soupy. Everything else I kept the same. This recipe is great because all of the flavors work together brilliantly and you can adjust it to your taste. It taste even better the next day when all the flavors have really had a chance to marrying.

Old Charleston Style Shrimp and Grits
I saw another recipe for shrimp and grits on this site and it made me explore the other shrimp and grit recipes. This one is fabulous! I made a few minor adjustments for my taste and they worked out just fine. I used chicken Andouille sausage from Trader Joes,green, red and orange peppers, added fresh asparagus and canned diced tomatoes ( would have preferred fresh but didn't have any). I added a bit more cayenne because my family likes a little more heat and kept everything else the same. As far as the grits go I added garlic powder, but I also put a couple of shakes of ground red pepper to the mix. It definitely kicked it up a notch and married well with the shrimp mixture. The shrimp combo on top of the cheese grits was a taste explosion in my mouth! When my daughter and cousin came in the next day they immediately wanted to know what the wonderful smell was and both sat down and had a bowl. The flavors were even more electrifying the next day. The beauty in this is you can tweak this recipe to your liking. I chose to add more veggies. Keep in mind if you add more veggies they create more liquid. If you like a thicker gravy adjust your flour mixture.
