Chocolate Caramel Brownies
I don't normally rate recipes low since I often "tweak" them so much, but I followed this one completely and it was a waste! My brownies turned out very greasy with an "undercooked-like" texture, even though I did not use a glass pan and I cooked them exactly as long as the recipe called for. The taste couldn't even save the texture, as it wasn't anything to write home about either! Thank goodness I had the sense to do a trial run batch before taking them to my in-laws' house for Thanksgiving as I'd planned! I will not be making these again.

Mini Meatloaves
These were pretty good ... I did use a large muffin pan like others had, since I didn't have a mini loaf pan. My loaves turned out pretty greasy, but maybe it was just the hamburger I used? I let the oats soak and only put cheese in half of the meat mixture. I do think that next time I will use Ritz crackers instead of oats, as I make a lot of cookies using oats, and the taste/texture reminded me of the cookies.

Never-Ever-Fail Meringue
Perfect! I used this recipe for the first meringue I'd ever made, and I'll use it for every meringue I make!
