Greek Chicken Pasta
My husband and I were kind of sick of pasta, so I made this recipe but put it on pita bread. It was a great idea! I read a lot of reviews, and a common complaint was that the pasta was somewhat dry. By putting it on pita bread instead of pasta, the problem was solved. :) I halved the entire recipe with the exception of the feta cheese and artichokes- those I kept at the full portion (I like both of those ingredients a lot). I used marinated artichokes and canned diced tomatoes per the recommendations of others. I sauteed the chicken pieces in the oil from the artichokes, which worked out really well. Overall the result was great. I feel that this is really versatile recipe with a TON of flavor.

Skyline Chili I
This recipe was amazing- I practically licked my bowl! The chili tasted exactly like Skyline chili. :) I read the reviews and decided to make a few alterations. First, the texture of the meat is crucial in making this taste authentic. I browned the meat and ran it through a food processor for about a minute. I honestly feel that the finely ground meat made a huge difference in the flavor. I also used half the amount of cinnamon and added 3 squares of bittersweet chocolate. Because I didn't have 12 hours, I mixed all of the ingredients in a large skillet and let it simmer on the stove for 3 hours. I feel that that was plenty of time, and it tasted great. I served the chili over spaghetti with diced onions and finely shredded cheddar cheese. My husband and I both agree that this is a keeper! P.S. For those who don't have onion salt on hand, 1 part onion powder and 3 parts salt can be substituted. A woman at a local spice shop told me this, and I figure she knows what she is talking about. :)
