Shrimp Fried Rice II
I didn't like this recipe for varying reasons. First ... it was overly salty. Second ... it was mushy. Third ... it tasted not like Asian shrimp fried rice but rice with shrimp. Fourth ... it was simply okay but didn't taste in the least bit authentic. Fifth ... I think that the eggs should have been cooked separately ... they did not taste cooked ... kind of a raw texture. I had to cook it and cook it to get the eggs well-done. Sixth , husband thought it was ok. I will use a different recipe next time or alter this one. Less soy sauce ... cook eggs separately ... more Asian spices ... this was very bland. More veggies. Everything stuck to the pan ... I had difficulty with that. A real bummer. Sorry.

Chicken Pot Pie I
I changed a few things ... used two cans of soup ... cream of chicken and cream of celery ... added lots of spices. Sautéed onions and mushrooms in butter ... added to mixture ... it turned out GREAT except for one thing??? I used Pillsbury pie crusts ... they were too small and too sweet. I will definitely make this again but I will use a different crust. My husband loved the filling but refused to eat the crust. He thought that it was overly sweet and so did I. Without the additions, I feel that it would not have been too bland.

Easy Blueberry Cobbler
Okay ...I said that I would let you know. Tons of butter ... BUT ... this is something that is eaten on rare occasions (at least I would) ... but I must say ... this is a w o n d e r f u l recipe ... and I give it five stars ... but only for guests or on occasion. As I stated previously, I used blueberries, one apple and a couple handfuls of raisins (soaked in rum) ... I didn't have enough blueberries ... it turned out SO FAB I CAN'T TELL YOU. Next time I will try peaches or apricots or whatever is handy and in season at the time ... juicy fruits are better. Yum recipe to be used over and over and over again because of its easiness and its versatility and it's yummyness. I totally recommend trying this recipe as stated with a changeover in fruits if you like. I won't cut down on the butter ... but I won't make it often with this amount of butter. I used a soufflet type dish ... one of those round white sizeable ones. GO FOR IT!!!
