Beef Pho
I have never taken the time to make Pho the "real" way, but decided to try this one yesterday on a day off. I have a great recipe from Women's Health that I make all the time and only takes 30-45 min. My husband and I refer to it as "faux Pho". However, this one blew it out of the water. It's so worth the time, and truly not that difficult. The depth of rich flavor that comes from cooking down the bones and spices all day is incredible! I had no problem finding beef knuckle for dirt cheap at my market, thought eliminated the ox tail, as other reviews said its not necessary. Instead of sirloin I used skirt steak, I added soy sauce for salt, and reserved some Daikon and julienned it to use as a garnish. Not sure that I can go back to my quickie version now, may have to come up with some way of doing this in the crockpot for work nights!

Across the Border Tequila Shrimp
This literally could not be easier or more delicious. I took a few cues from other reviewers and mixed a tablespoon of cornstarch in with the butter as I melted it at a low temperature and the sauce was a perfect consistency. I also served it over couscous (I had no rice) with sliced avocado. I'm not a big tequila drinker so I purchased a very small bottle of Patron Silver for $6.00 just to make this and it was well worth it. I also must admit I had a little shot as a was cooking, which should be mandatory, as it added to the whole experience. My husband and I were both in love with this shrimp and it will most certainly become part of my dinner repertoire.
