Chicken Parmesan Tuscany
I've made this twice - my husband was very skeptical of the ingredients first time around but he really likes the flavors in the soup. I skip the Bisquick step and just season the chicken (no salt seasonings since the soup has plenty of sodium!). I've made it with whole breasts and chicken tenders. Other than that, I haven't tried to mix it up more than that yet but I've made it twice in less than 2 months - we definitely like it and the more I make it I'm sure I will start experimenting.

Fiesta Taco Casserole
My husband and I enjoyed this dinner. I only used S&P to season the beef, but with spicy chili beans and hot salsa the flavor in the dish was great. The tortilla chips at the bottom do get soggy - while I actually liked that, I don't think they add any flavor to the dish and they certainly don't help it nutritionally so I would skip them in the future. This is also a good lettuce wrap filling. The fresh tomatoes are a nice touch.

Beef and Green Chile Enchiladas
My husband thought these were his favorite enchiladas I've ever made (mostly many different chicken or vegetarian recipes). I don't know about that but they were very good! I followed the recipe exactly (except for using sour lean, and reduced fat cheese). I made the pan and put it in the freezer; it's also so relaxing to know dinner's already taken care of one night! I wish they were a little spicier so I might tweak the recipe a tiny bit that direction for next time - but as is they are also a great family recipe as the rest of my family doesn't like spice as much as we do.

Country French Chicken and Rice
Easy recipe, the rice was surprisingly flavorful. Not quite five stars as I feel a lot more can be done with the rice, but I will make it again to experiment!

Peppermint Cream Brownie Torte
This dessert looks pretty but isn't amazing. I didn't think the peppermint cream did anything to improve the brownies, but our house is all about plain brownies-no frosting. I don't think I'd make it again. It's not a difficult recipe but it used a lot of pans.

Parmesan Potatoes and Ham
I liked the idea of this recipe but I made several changes. I used frozen mixed vegetables instead of O'Brien potatoes, but I made the topping more as mashed potatoes than potato-thickened sauce. I searched around and found a from-scratch replacement for the cooking sauce. I used 1 cup of Buds with about 2 cups of my homemade cooking sauce to get a flavorful mashed potato mixture, and poured an additional one cup of the sauce over my ham and vegetables. The dinner was good although not going on our favorites list. I would make it again, with the same ingredients although I think the sauce/potato ratio would need more tweaking. It was almost too flavorful!

Pink Champagne Cupcakes
I made these cupcakes for my birthday party. I bought a pink moscato by Barefoot Bubbly. I think the overall cupcake is very good, although next time I will probably cut back the sugar in the frosting. I just whipped all the ingredients at once - next time I will add the sugar in 1/2 cup at a time and stop when I like it. The frosting is just a little too sugary. Although at least one guest told me the frosting was the best part, for my personal taste, I would like less sugar.

This was easy to make and combines two really delicious things, pumpkin pie and "hazelnut spread with cocoa." These two delicious things together make a good pie, but not my favorite. I would not choose this pie to replace traditional pumpkin at Thanksgiving! But I would probably make it again.

Rosemary Roast Chicken
This chicken came out moist and delicious. I guess I don't much care for acorn squash, I will pick a different squash or do potatoes next time, but the butter mixture is a keeper. There also seemed to be a lot of it, plenty to tuck in to all the nooks and crannies.

Roasted Cauliflower with Asiago and Orange
I thought this was very good. I love asiago and I love cauliflower, and both worked well with the orange. A pretty easy side dish, too - get this started and in to the oven, and it's the perfect amount of time to work on a quick main course (we ate it with the Orange Zested Chicken Breasts).
