Jalapeno Popper Spread
So very good! I cut this in half and put in a glass 8x8 dish (no microwave method at all). I followed the top reveiwer's method w/ the panko and parm on top and it was fab-u-lous!! I also used fresh jalapenos from our garden, 2 of them. Had a kick that was prefect. We LOVED this!

Taco Pie
I know I know I knooooow "You can't rate it when you changed the ingredients". I didn't omit any ingredients though, just added more things. So I'm rating this 5 stars FOR THE GREAT IDEA AND START TO A VERY VERSITILE RECIPE. Okay, now that that's out of the way. First, I doubled this recipe and put it in a greased 9x13 glass dish. I went w/ another reviewer and baked the dough about 4 min. less than what it called for since it will be cooking some more in the oven when it's all put together. DO NOT DO THAT. The crust was doughy and raw and soggy even after cooking the whole thing for 15 minutes at the temperature I used to cook the dough. Next time I will absolutely cook the dough ALL the way the WHOLE time it calls for. Now, I made the beef like I would normally make it for regular taco meat (add seasoning and simmer w/ water to get the consistancy). I also added 1/2 a chopped onion to the meat while it cooked. I layered it in this order: Dough/Crust, taco meat, 1 can refried beans & 1 16oz container sour cream mixed then spread on top of meat, 1/2 jar of salsa, 1 can of black beans, 1/2 bag of taco seasoned cheese & 1/2 bag of sharp cheddar, then the chips finally on top. Everything about thi was amazing minus my faulty error w/ the dough. You could always do this w/o the crust and just use for a taco dip. AMAZING recipe, thank you for the start of a great thing! This is so easy to omit and add items as you choose!

Marinade for Chicken
Everyone seemed to like it but me. It was also a new group to entertain so they could of been just saying it to be nice haha. I thought it was a little to strong for my taste. You couldn't barely even taste the chicken. Only changes I did was use low sodium soy sauce and omitted the salt, and used dried parsley flakes instead of fresh. No need to measure the dried mustard; I measured it and it was exactly the whole .45 oz thing. I used 4 chicken breast halves, but could of easily fit 6 or 7 even. I marinated them in the smaller mixing bowl from my stand mixer and covered it with seran wrap in the fridge for exactly 1 day. Give it a try!
