Scrumptious Salmon Cakes
Very good recipe but, due to "user error," was a bit salty, as I'd used leftover salmon. I used crushed UNSALTED soda crackers (maybe 1 c. total, as I had a fair amount of salmon), 1 tsp. Old Bay, replaced the black pepper with only about 1/2 tsp. of white pepper, and added onion powder (my daughter is suspicious of anything with the texture of chopped onions). These were really moist and flavorful and held together perfectly; I made & shaped them then stuck them in the fridge for about 30 minutes. I'll happily make this recipe again, being mindful of the salt level on my salmon and adjusting accordingly.

Fabulous Wet Burritos
This recipe is infinitely adaptable and served as a great base from which to start. I used 10" flour tortillas (a full package of ten), placing about 6 in a Pyrex 9x13 and the remainder in an 8x8. I had a few leftovers in the fridge that I added to the filling mixture, including about 1/2 C. of pinto beans and a scant 1 C. of homemade turkey chili, so I was able to make plenty of burritos (enough for two nights). I omitted the lettuce & tomatoes from the filling and instead served it on top. I also used 96/4 lean turkey, which I drained. The sauce is delicious but does make a ton, so there's plenty to drizzle on the pan bottom to prevent any sticking. With a few modifications (fat free refried beans, lean turkey, low fat chili, light cheese) it's still delicious but also a decently healthful -- and totally filling! -- dinner. I'll happily put this in the rotation.

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.
