None so far. I follow tried and true recipes. Not confident enough to experiment with dishes.

Spicy Bloody Mary Mix
This is an excellent recipe. I have used it for several holidays and gotten rave reviews from my guests. Go easy on the hot sauce and let them add their own fire. Some serving suggestions: cook some medium shrimp and chill then on a long toothpick (I use cut in half bamboo skewers) add shrimp, cocktail onion and pimento olive or some other green olive (no black olives) and stick in cocktail glass then add vodka and BM prepared to be amazed.

Avocado-Lime Shrimp Salad (Ensalada de Camarones con Aguacate y Limon)
This recipe was absolutely fabulous. I made it in November, so the tomatoes were not the best, but it still came out fantastic. I used a yellow bell pepper for color, I think red would go well too. Use the lime juice like the recipe calls for and let it set in the refrigerator for more than 15 minutes (I left it overnight). Allows the flavors to blend. Everyone in my wine class loved it. I can't wait to try it again with home-grown tomatoes next summer.
