Greek Chicken and Pasta
I made this last night and thought it was decent. My guests, however, raved about it. Personally, I also thought it was missing a little something, especially with an odd lemon taste (and considering there's no lemon in the recipe... I think it was with the caramelized onions)...
I substituted mushrooms for the artichoke (a guest was already bringing spinach artichoke dip and I didn't want to steal her thunder) and it made it an easy way to sneak more veggies into the carbs and protein. Because of the previous review that something was off, I used chicken breasts I had seasoned with basil and it turned out lovely. Since I forgot the parsley, I don't keep it on hand, it ended up working anyway.

Chocolate Raspberry Triangles
I used fresh raspberries instead of frozen w/ syrup and it turned out WAY too tart. If I try again, will add sugar to the raspberry topping.
