    I think fajita salads or any kind of Mexican inspired salads are the best!

    Your fajita salads looked amazing! Will definitely have to try that…

    I TOTALLY agree about Jenn. I wasn’t a huge fan of hers when she was on the Vegas season, but WOW! What the hell did she take before this episode to make her so angry? I actually read Gail Simmons’ blog over at http://www.ew.com where she thinks the reason this season the chefs are talking back so much is because they are already comfortable with the judges. There is no intimidation factor that usually goes into a new season. They are all more seasoned, more confident and therefore more defensive. I thought it was an interesting point.

    But you know someone is crossing the line when even Tiffany (Season 1 runner up, with the long red hair) thinks you’re crossing the line. She was a big “talk backer” when she was on and always got defensive.

      That’s a great point and I figured comfort was part of the reason for talking back. It’s weird how they are suddenly so confident in their abilities when they were SENT HOME in the first place!

        Oh I know… The egos are out of control! I have to say Jamie is the worst though. (the one who cut her thumb, which by the way, lame!) She was on Richard Blais’ season and I hated her then and hate her now. Constantly feels she’s better than everyone, and yet she didn’t even make the finals her season. Ugh…

          I think Jaime was the season with Fabio…5? I think? I liked her! At least I used to. This season I don’t like her as much, which is a bummer.

    Oh you’re totally right, she was on Fabio’s season. Ugh, they are all running together in my head! She always just rubbed me the wrong way…

      Michael and I never liked Jenn either. She was so bitchy!!

    Hi!New reader here! Making a fajita bowl sans wrap is a really food idea! I love fajitas, so I’ll have to give this a go soon!

      Thanks for checking out my blog. I am definitely a fan of the fajita bowl. We eat too much bread as it is so this is just one more way I can cut out bread.
