Puff Pastry
Awesome! Don't roll too thin, but don't leave too thick. I had read all the warnings about needing to roll thin, but some of my apple turnovers broke open and weren't as nice as the ones that I rolled 1/8-1/4 in thick. Very good. No need for storebought with the ease of this recipe

Crispy Fish Fillets
The breading was excellent. I think the potato flakes add a lot. As another suggested, I first dredged the fish in flour, then egg, then the mix, then back in egg, then back in the mix. It made a thick coating on the fish. I used cheap storebought cod. Had I had a good fish it would have been awesome. Want to try the breading on chicken.

Pretzel Dessert
Excellent. Exactly the recipes I was looking for. I had fresh strawberries and used them. I just added them to the boiling jello and let them cook a minute so that they would be soft. Made sure to seal the pretzels as others had mentioned with the cream cheese mixture, and they didn't get soggy.
