Fresh Mint and Cilantro Melon Salad
This was wonderfully delicious. It tasted so fresh. To help you out a bit with the measurements, I used 3/4 of the melon to make the 4 cups, 1 lime for the 1 tablespoon of juice, and 1 full package of fresh mint for the 1/3 cup. I also added about 1/2 package of sliced fresh strawberries that were sweet enough so that the "white sugar to taste" was not even needed. If you do add strawberries, it will turn the melon slightly red on the edges so you might want to add them when about to serve. I will most definitely make it again!

Tacos in Pasta Shells
Overall this was a good dish with a couple of changes. My substitutions were: ground turkey for the ground beef, reduced sodium taco seasoning for the chili powder and salt, and red enchilada sauce for the butter. Some other changes / suggestions: line the 9 X 13 dish with foil for easy clean up, definitely use a little taco sauce (the green was my favorite) on the bottom to prevent the shells from drying out, use the tortilla chips that have a touch of lime, and add some crumbled queso fresco when serving (I did cut back a bit on the Cheddar and Monterey). Thanks for the recipe.

Garlic Chicken with Orzo Noodles
My husband and I don't share tastes too often, but we both liked this recipe. I got my pasta and cheese, and he got his chicken with a kick, thanks to the red pepper. I followed the recipe with the few exceptions: the orzo was cooked in chicken broth, used basil instead of parsley, and added mushrooms, yellow squash, and zucchini the last couple minutes of cooking the chicken. Easy and delicious way to eat your veggies. Thanks for the recipe!
