Creamy Pesto Shrimp
This is just what I needed after a long day at work. Fresh, yet comforting. I did change some things due to health reasons and finances (love shrimp, but it's expensive here). Also, I love veggies. I did not salt the pasta water, and used whole wheat linguine. I subbed olive oil for butter, and reduced it down to not quite 3 tbsp. I sauteed 4 pressed cloves of garlic, 2 chopped scallions, a cup of sliced mushrooms, a diced green pepper, and a diced red pepper in the oil. Then diced a lb of chicken breast, seasoned with pepper and Italian seasoning, and added it to the veggies. After the chicken had browned, I added a cup of half and half, then mixed a tbsp of cornstarch to a cup of 1% milk and added that, and added the pepper. I used only 1/3 of the parmesan called for. Added 1/3 cup fresh chopped basil with the pesto. Served with green beans that I cooked with some fresh garlic. This was a very good meal. The whole family loved it. Will definitely make again, and when finances allow, will definitely try with shrimp.

Oaxacan Tacos
Thank you so much for such a great recipe. I wasn't expecting to love it so much with the ingredients being so simple, but these really are good. I did make a few minor adjustments. I can't justify paying that much for meat, so I bought a 2 lb beef roast, sliced it into steaks, and then into thin strips. I then put it into a ziploc with the juice of one lime for about 20 minutes before cooking. Once I got it onto the skillet, I added onion powder, garlic salt, and black pepper. Loved the fried corn tortillas. I grew up with eating tacos that way and I still think it's the best. For toppings, I put out cilantro, the Guacamole from this site, lime wedges, fresh medium salsa, black olives, and sour cream for the kids. I loved that the meat was flavorful, but not spicy, so that we could each adjust the tacos to our own liking with the different toppings. Thank you again. This one's a keeper.

Chicken Pot Pie IX
I thought it was a decent starter recipe. I mostly followed the recipe as written. I did not boil the peas with the chicken and other veggies, because I think that would cook them more than I like (I hate mushy peas), and instead of cubing the chicken, I boiled two whole breasts, and then shredded them afterward. I like the consistency of shredded chicken better. I didn't have any fresh onions on hand, so I just melted the butter and made my roux, adding 1 tsp of onion powder. Added the peas to the chicken and veggies as I was shredding the meat. Everything else went as directed. I thought there was plenty of sauce and I liked the consistency of the pie. But I think it's kind of bland. I will hang on to this recipe, but next time, I will make sure to have fresh onion on hand, and saute some fresh garlic along with it, and add either some bouillon or some poultry seasoning to the gravy. Maybe some more black pepper and salt, too.
