Sizzling Sherry Shrimp with Garlic
Overall I really enjoyed this recipe but I should have read the suggestions of other reviewers before preparing it. Then I would have known to add the garlic at the end. Because it was added at the beginning the garlic was way overcooked. I used sherry and next time I will probably double the sherry, reduce the olive oil by half and add a T of butter to the oil.

Quick and Easy Mexican Chicken
I used a jar of med. hot salsa and found it to be a little overpowering. Next time I'll use a mild salsa and reduce the amount to 3/4 cup. Very easy and quick recipe to make on a busy weeknight.

I thought this recipe was only ok. Easy to prepare but not enough flavor even though I doubled the amount of garlic (I really like garlic). I doubt I will make it again.
