Hermano Roberto's Simple Salsa
I've long suspected the key to the awesome salsa at my favorite authentic Mexican restaurants was canned tomatoes, so I was excited to try this. I made it twice: the first time, I followed it exactly. The thing about salsa is that it's very subjective and easy to tweak, so I gave this five stars, even though I found it a little too soupy, a little too hot and it was missing something... which I realized was onions and garlic. So I tried it again: draining the tomatoes, adding two tablespoons of diced onions, a 1/4 teaspoon of garlic powder and taking it down to one jalapeno. Success! This is a great recipe to tweak for your own tastes. Love it!

Grilled Swordfish
This was excellent! Didn't have any teriyaki sauce on hand, so I combined soy sauce + 1 tbls. honey + sprinkle of dried ginger instead and it worked great. Also used real butter to baste. Can't wait to make it again.

Pineapple Upside-Down Cake VII
Disclaimer: Not only have I never made a p-upside cake, I've never even eaten one! But last week's Desperate Housewives featured one and made me really want to try it. I don't have a cast iron skillet yet so I used a 9x13 Pyrex. I didn't make any other changes, except I sprayed olive oil on the glass sides before I put the batter in. I had to bake it for 45 minutes. It flipped easily into my cake carrier and tastes delicious! Very sweet, I might cut down the sugar next time for my own tastes. The bottom broke a little, it still looks nice but I think it would look fancier in a cast iron. All and all, a total hit and I can't wait to make it in the cast iron.
