Best Ever Split Pea
I grew up eating split pea soup and this recipe is a great start, but for extra flavor we always use a leftover ham bone or smoked turkey leg. My mom used to add cut up pieces of polska kielbasa which she pan fried first. Omit any extra salt if you do this. I also like to add 1/2 tsp of oregano and 1 tsp pepper. Try it this way and you will be coming back for seconds. :)

Balsamic-Glazed Salmon Fillets
My new favorite! I forgot about the oregano and didn't add the white wine and this still was a super delicious moist fish. I used a whole fillet and baked for 20 minutes. I can't wait to try this again!

Arroz con Pollo II
This can be a 5 star dish with a few variations. I use 4 lbs of chicken marinate in a 1 TB of red wine vinegar, ` tsp oregano, 1tsp cumin and 1 tsp coriander for about 20 min. after marinatiing I salt and pepper each side and pan fry in a 3 TB olive oil until each side is browned. I remove the chicken and I make a sofrito with onions, red bell bepper, and 1 roasted chile. After a few minutes I add back the chicken and add 1 diced tomato, 1 small can tomato sauce, 1 cup white wine, 1 can of beer, and 3 cups chicken stock. Season with addtl salt if needed. I bring to boil and simmer for 15 min covered. Then I add 2 1/2 cups rice and cover simmered until rice is done about 20 min. With fried plantains om the side, delicous!
