Sweet Hot Mustard Chicken Thighs
After reading through the reviews, I decided to bake mine in 2 cast iron skillets. I believe the key to not having burnt onions it to bake this in a dish, and not on a baking pan, and being sure to place the onions UNDER the chicken. I put a heavy layer of onions on the bottom (I think I used almost 3 onions.) Drizzled them with a little olive oil & seasoned with salt & pepper before continuing. Then after everything was in the frying pans, I filled in the spaces between the chicken with cut up red potatoes. Baked, covered, at 400 degrees for about 45 minutes then removed the foil and baked a few minutes longer to get that golden color. It was delicious.

Sloppy Joes II
I tried this, and it was just missing something. I doubled the sauce (otherwise I felt it was too dry)but only used a total of 4 T. brown sugar. Also added chopped celery, and a healthy splash of red wine vinegar. That was the "something" it needed. With the changes it is pretty good stuff.

Tyler's Raspberry Thumbprints with White Chocolate Glaze
Good start to a terrific cookie. After reading all of the reviews, and having many people say they tasted bland I made the following changes: Omitted the chopped white chocolate chips, added 1 t. almond extract to the dough, chilled dough before placing on Silpat lined cookie sheets. Baked for 12 minutes. Delicious. They turned out very nicely. It sounds from the reviews that the almond extract was really needed. The other changes were just my preferences. Will be making these again.
