This dish was very good, however it was extremely salty.  Next time I would use low sodium beef broth and even omit the onion soup mix.  You could replace it with freeze dried onions and some other spices such as garlic powder, onion powder, etc.

This one is a keeper.  I like the way the parmesan binds to the pasta when mixed with the pasta water.  The sweet crab with the subtle tartness of the lemon made this delicious.

Made with greek yogurt cream cheese, this spread provided all the flavor of jalapeno poppers without all the work or calories. I served it on crackers and the butter flavor of the cracker complimented the spread perfectly.

My future son-in-law requested this pie as his birthday dessert this year.  I'm not a fan of key lime pie so I've never made it, actually I've never had more than a bite.  The birthday boy said it was great, and it tasted just like key lime pie.   That's good enough for me!

I love fillet of fish sandwiches from McDonald's and I know it's the steamed bun that makes the sandwich so good.  I didn't have any hamburger buns on hand so I had to compromise.  The hot dog buns actually worked better as they held the fish pieces nicely.

The flavor of these were good, they just didn't come out looking pretty.  The original recipe called for chunky applesauce and I used regular.  I expected more of a stickiness to them that was not there.

It's amazing that just three ingredients could create such a variety of flavor.  This dish comes together very nicely and would be great served over mashed potatoes.

A nice twist to plain coleslaw.  Of course bacon is always good on or with anything.  The apples gave it a sweet tartness to blend with the crunchy cabbage and creamy dressing.

I picked up a cookbook at the thrift store and was thumbing through it when this recipe caught my eye.  If you like strong orange flavor then you might like this just the way it is.  I thought it was a bit overwhelming. I would replace the orange juice with water, and probably only use one can of oranges.  Might even cut back on the sherbet and use more whipped topping.
