Asian Chicken Wonton Cups
These were OK, I didn't just love them like crazy, but they were easy and quick to put together. I couldn't find dark sesame oil for the life of me, so I had to use something else. Maybe that is where the flavor came from, because I felt they were kind of bland. Also, these are not ingredients I normally have on hand, so I had to buy most of them, which became quite pricey when I only needed 1 or 2 tablespoons. I probably wouldn't make them again.

Sour Cream-Cranberry Bars
These were just so-so. I made them exactly as written, I felt it needed more cranberries, but only had exactly the amount listed. Deffinately needed some cinnamon or something in the oat mixture. It was very bland. I made them for Thanksgiving, thought it would be nice to have another choice along with all the pies. However, I went home with all but 2 bars, and the 2 bars only got partially eaten. I give it 3 spoons because we ate them for breakfast the whole next week and they were great! Kind of "breakfast bar"-ish, or like a soft granola bar. Easy to take and eat on the run, so this was not a total loss, but not a good dessert.

Grilled Turkey Panini Sandwiches
This was a great sandwich! I skipped the artichokes (they're not my favorite, and I knew my kids would never eat it)and added pre-cooked bacon. They were wonderful! The pesto mayo really made the sandwich. I made extra to put on sandwiches for the rest of the week. Served with canned tomato soup and, ta-dah! A quick, easy week-night supper! Yum!

Key Lime Cupcakes
Oooh, these were so yummy! I rated it a 4 because I used my own favorite buttercream recipe, using lime juice, instead of the cream cheese frosting and glaze (I just happened to have these ingredients on-hand). They were wonderful, like a little bite of summer!

Strawberries and Cream Dessert Squares
My kids and I made this, age 7 and 4 (and 2, but she watched). It was SO easy and yummy! We want to eat the whole pan at once! This is a real winner for sure.
