I cut this recipe in half since it's just two of us and had it over egg noodles for dinner. I used a hawaiian roll since that was the closest I had to white bread and I only used ground beef because I didn't have pork. It tasted great but stuck to the pan and fell apart a lot when I was browning them so I gave up trying to get them brown all the w"

Fajitas are a staple for us and this was so much better then the seasoning packet I usually use. I made a much smaller quantity since it's just 2 of us and let it marinade for 45-50 min for all the flavor we could get.

I paired it with a ta"

Looking for new, healthy recipes is always a challenge. This was great because we rarely have shrimp and it was a new way to have pasta. I didn't use olives [I really don't like olives] and had to take a few liberties on amounts to make this for just the two of us but followed it as close as possible. My husband loved it and it will definately be "

Reviewed Artichoke and Spinach Dip

Feb 5, 2013 in Food Network Community Toolbox on FoodNetwork.com

Not very flavorful. I added an extra clove of garlic and some black pepper but everyone at the party agreed it was missing something. It was too much artichoke as well. I didn't finish adding the artichoke and it was still too much. It also turned gelatinous when it cooled. There are much better recipes for spinach dip out there. "
