Southwestern Chicken Scaloppine
This recipe was excellent. I made it one night as an experiment and my boyfriend and I liked it so much that we eat it once a week. We put some black beans next to it and it makes for a quick, healthy, filling, delicious dinner.

Chicken Vegetable Couscous
Let me start by saying I love chicken, I love vegetables and I love couscous; however, I did not like this recipe. It looked and smelled really good, but it tasted SO bland. I tried adding garlic salt to spice it up, a bit more Parmesan but nothing made it flavorful. I even cooked the couscous with chicken broth instead of water. Both my boyfriend and I agreed that we won't be making this one again.

Ravioli and Eggplant Stew
So good! Super easy to make and it didn't take me 55 minutes, more like 40 minutes. I added about a quarter tsp. of black pepper and a about one tblsp. of italian seasoning. I think next time I will add a bit more eggplant and use two small zucchini instead of one medium for more crunch. Other than that, perfect. Healthy, filling, delicious dinner.

Red Velvet Rich and Creamy Cookies
Great recipe. My local market was out of stock of the Betty Crocker sugar cookie mix so I substituted with a generic brand mix, it worked just was well. I also decreased the cocoa to 1/4 cup and cooked them for exactly 8 minutes in my convection oven after treading the reviews. They turned out amazing! My sister and I ate way too many because they were so good. I would advise to go easy on the frosting, it's very sweet and can overwhelm the flavor of the cookie.

Italian Sausage with Tomatoes and Penne
I thought this recipe would be amazing, and it wasn't bad but I found it a little boring. I felt like it needed something, maybe some pesto or other light sauce. My boyfriend felt the same way and he is a big fan of italian sausage.

Cheddar Mac and Cheese
Good recipe but it needed some tweaking to make it perfect. I added parmesan cheese to the cheddar cheese (about half a cup shredded) and before I put it in to bake I put a sprinkle of nutmeg over the whole dish. Just before I served each plate I added a sprinkle more pepper and nutmeg. It was a huge hit!

Herb-Scented Roast Turkey with Cornbread Stuffing
LOVE IT!! I made it this last Thanksgiving and when Christmas came my inlaws called to make sure I was making turkey even though we weren't hosting. It has been unanimously decided that I need to make this turkey every year for Thanksgiving and Christmas. Wow, what a winner!

Pesto Ravioli with Chicken
This recipe is fantastic! So easy to make and very delicious. I made it for dinner for my boyfriend and I tonight because I didn't have a lot of time, it does not taste like a 30 minute dinner, it was so good we ate all of it. Next time I think I will use one chicken breast instead of two and add fresh mushrooms. I can't think of anything else to make this recipe better.
