Delectable Marinated Chicken
I wasn't expecting much but needed a quick marinade. This was fabulous! I skipped the sesame seeds and instead used about 1 tsp. toasted sesame oil (I was afraid the seeds would burn on the grill), used 1 hefty tsp. garlic powder and ommitted minced garlic & garlic pepper. I added only about 2 Tbs. of canola oil and cubed the chicken for kebabs then marinated for about 4 hours. It absorbed the marinade and wasn't too smoky (I'm not a huge liquid smoke fan but used the full tsp. per other reviewers). I'll absolutely make this again. Next time I'll boil the extra marinade for 3 minutes and serve alongside.

Cinnamon Griddle Cakes
Doubled the recipe (but used 2 Tbs. powder, not the full 8 tsp.) and used buttermilk. I made them diner-sized (huge!) then froze the remaining 3 w/ wax paper in between and defrosted for 1/2 hr then re-warmed on the griddle. Easy for school morning breakfasts!

Sarah's Rice Pilaf
It's a good, basic side dish. I used brown basmati rice but otherwise followed the recipe to the letter. I'm happy to have this recipe and will use it when I've got the time or inclination to make something more healthful (SO much less sodium and gunk than Rice a Roni) than a boxed side dish during the week. I could see that this recipe could benefit from creative seasonings or herbs (chives? thyme?) but I didn't bother and we were all happy with it as written.
