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.

This was a birthday dinner for my future son-in-law, he ate almost half of it the first night.  My daughter took the finished product photo's and was having problems with her camera zooming in.  None the less, it was very good and I will be making this again perhaps in smaller single-serving spring form pans.

The rotel tomatoes with green chilies add just the right amount of kick.  Combined with with black olives and chicken, the greek yogurt cream cheese ties it all together.  The best part of it all, it's very low in fat creating a healthier creamy chicken enchilada.  They tasted a lot better than they looked!

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.

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.
