Miniature Cheesecakes

Miniature Cheesecakes from allrecipes.com

These were terrible! I followed other reviews and omitted the nutmeg and doubled the vanilla. These still had no taste, and were dry. Maybe needed the sour cream topping that cheesecake usually has. Totally disappointing and I definitely would not make these again.

Katie Lee's Beef Stroganoff

Katie Lee's Beef Stroganoff from Every Day with Rachael Ray Magazine

This was incredible! Next time I will omit the salt entirely and add some near the end. It was a bit too salty. I also would double the mushroom amount (personal preference). I used brandy because that is what I had on hand- and I think I would use a little more than called for. This was by far THE best stroganoff recipe I have ever tried. I served it over egg noodles but it would be great with rice as well. I will have to try to more of Katie Lee's recipes- this is the first one of hers I've tried. I will definitely make this again. I also made some homemade tv dinners by freezing the leftovers.

Roasted Garlic Soup

Roasted Garlic Soup

(I didn't make the asiago crostini). This was very good if you are sick with a cold or something, but this much garlic was difficult to eat even for me. (And somewhat difficult to digest!) I might try to make some sort of modified version of this (less garlic, more chicken broth and veggies).
