Cantaloupe Berry Smoothie
Just what I was looking for! The best smoothie ever, but I added to it. First, I was shy on raspberries, and used about 1/2 c. of them, about 1+ c. of cubed canteloupe. To that I added Greek Yogurt, approx. 1/2 c., 2 T. honey instead of sugar, and about 1/3 c. Silk Almond Milk original flavor. After I served it, I realized that salt would be a great addition. So, I sprinkled a pinch of Fleur de Sel over the top before serving. Next time I may run a lime wedge around the rim and dip the glass in salt before pouring. Think Margaritas! Thanks for the inspirational recipe!!! PS. Super sweet canteloupe helps. Mine was perfect.

Chicken Breasts in Caper Cream Sauce
This is a divine recipe if you skip the lemon pepper, flour the breasts lightly before browning and then deglaze the pan with 1/2 c. white wine before adding the remaining ingredients. I used the juice of half a large lemon in the sauce to replace the lemon pepper. I had 3 breasts, which I halved and pounded between waxed paper. This gave me 6 thin cutlets and I did not need to double the sauce. The chicken breasts were from Trader Joe's and were hormone free. Quality of the ingredients really does make a difference. I briefly returned the cooked chicken to the pot until coated all over with the sauce. Served this with a side of Laura's Lemon Roasted Potatoes from this site (*****) and some steamed artichoke hearts. What a meal!! Thanks for the start of a great recipe.

Spanish Rice Chicken II
Good basic chicken and rice dish. Before preparing I read all reviews. I did not have green pepper so I used a serrano and an orange bell pepper. For tomatoes, I used diced with jalapeno. I also added 2 cloves of minced garlic after sauteing the onion and peppers. I changed the amount of paprika to 1 tsp., added 1/4 tsp of turmeric and dissolved a generous pinch of saffron threads in the chicken broth. I had a small serving of homemade chorizo in the refrigerator, so I threw that in when adding the liquid and tomatoes. I brought the liquid to a simmer on the stovetop then finished the dish covered in the oven at 375 for 25 minutes. Before serving I added 1 c. of frozen peas, and let the heat from the finished dish warm them. This was a delicious "poor man's" paella, which I will be serving over and over again. Four stars because I changed it so much.
