French Canadian Tourtiere
Very good. This isn't exactly as I remember my French-Canadian grandmothers making, but it's pretty close. Changes I made: I used 2 lbs of ground pork (no beef), omitted the water (the onions and pork rendered plenty of juice), and brushed an egg wash onto the crust.

Sparkling Holiday Jam
Not bad at all -- I halved the recipe as this makes just too much. Next time I'll up the ratio of cranberries to strawberries as I'd like it a bit more tart. Also, an immersion blender saved lots of time by avoiding having to chop up the berries in advance.

French Silk Chocolate Pie I
Pretty good. I thought the filling was a little heavy -- and there wasn't enough to fill the pie shell. I made a whipped cream topping to fill it out. Next time I might try whipping the egg whites and folding them into the mixture to give it more volume and lightness.
