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.

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!
