Sausage Stuffed Jalapenos
Heck, yeah! These are head-and-shoulders above! I've made these time and time again, often cooking them on the grill in lieu of the oven, especially on hot summer days. Wanna take it up a notch? Substitute sharp cheddar for the Parmesan - the cheddar really compliments the heat of the jalapenos. Either way, they're delicious.

Taco Seasoning I
This is our go-to recipe for taco seasoning. No more store-bought versions for me. I usually have all these ingredients on hand, so this is very easy to whip up -- and then use as little or as much as preferred. That being said, I always pretty much go by the recipe's guidelines. Well, tonight I realized I couldn't do that, as I lacked a couple of ingredients after I recently performed a huge purge of past-expiry spices (and hadn't had a chance to replace them). Unwilling to foray out to the grocery store in rush-hour traffic, I decided to substitute a Tablespoon of Cholula hot sauce for the chili powder (BTW, who in Texas runs out of chili powder, am I right?) and a heaping Tablespoon of instant (dried) chopped onions for the onion powder -- then, b/c of the wet ingredient (Cholula), I gave the mixture a good stir and let it sit for about 15 minutes to reconstitute the dried onions and let the other flavors meld. It all came out WONDERFUL. I was worried the vinegar in the hot sauce would overpower the other flavors -- but it was fine. Still, I'm going back to the original recipe ... that is, when I have the proper ingredients on hand. Two noms up.

Simple Garlic Shrimp
This recipe is really good. My suggestion for it is: you must have mise en place for it, otherwise it can go south in a hurry -- expensive shrimp will get over-cooked in a hurry (I used 16/25 Gulf and shelled them myself -- really, NOT a problem if you have 5 minutes -- also, really, really pay attention to Chef John's directions and timing). Please be prepared before you put this together -- don't be going all "Oh, I forgot to mince the garlic" before you attempt this recipe. Do follow Chef John's directions -- and have your ingredients all lined up on your stove top before you begin. Set your timer(s). It especially rocks if you add some (drained) chopped artichoke hearts and some steamed asparagus to it. Oh, also, fresh lemon juice and fresh garlic work far better than bottled/jarred varieties. Trust me. And ... you're welcome.
