Best Marinara Sauce Yet
Great recipe and super easy. In addition, I added: 3 anchovies (canned in oil, about 1 tablespoon mashed) 1 red pepper (needed to use it, and it added some sweetness) 1/2 cup chicken broth instead of wine Used 1 whole onion because I love onions Used a bit more garlic, probably 2-3 cloves, because garlic is delicious Also used dried parsley instead of fresh as it is all I had Added about 10 small fresh basil leaves at the end just before serving. Note: If you can use good quality San Marzano tomatoes for this, I highly suggest it! AMAZING. Simmered on low for about 50 minutes because it's so thick that it splatters a lot. Make sure you have a lid and are wearing long sleeves!

Pollo Fajitas
This was amazing! As most, I made a few changes: 1) Used chicken breast (2, boneless, skinless) 2) Used 1tbsp Siracha (the asian rooster sauce) instead of Cider Vinegar and Chili Powder 3) Added 1/4 tsp of Cumin 4) Added 1/4 tsp Chili Pepper Flakes 5) Added tsp of Paprika (sort of just threw it in until things looked to my liking) 6) Used 5 medium sized garlic cloves 7) Added just a sprinkling of salt and pepper For the veggies, I fried up the onions and green peppers a bit. It looked plain, and peppers were under cooked. So I added about 1/4 cup of water with 1/4 tsp of paprika (so the water was red) to the pan while frying. Sprinkled salt and pepper while cooking. For the tortillas, I put them in a pan and warmed them (blackened them a little bit). I'm mainly writing this so I don't forget the changes I made!!! LOVVVVVVVED this; we ate it ALL that night - using the excuse that there wasn't enough left to "save" anyway. So good.
