Best Egg Rolls
as written, this is no more than a two star recipe. I agree with other reviewers about the egg rolls being bland and not full of flavor. The second time I made them, I adjusted the recipe so much, it's now completely different and so much better. I finely chopped up two chicken breast and sautéed them with diced onion, chopped garlic, fresh ginger, salt, onion powder, garlic powder and a couple of dashes soy sauce. I added this to the shredded cabbage, added a bag of mung bean sprouts and re-seasoned to taste as necessary. Modifying, or rather changing the recipe made it five-stars.

Sweet Potato Pound Cake
I made this this evening and I'm still not sure what I think overall. Yes, it was light and fluffy, good texture, but the flavors were a tad too subtle for me. I think I was expecting a more powerful sweet potato taste and just didn't get it.

Hot Artichoke Spinach Dip
OMG - Yummy for your tummy. I need to preface this review with the fact that I HAD to alter the recipe slightly. I didn't have mozzarella cheese. so I added an additional 1/2 cup Romano cheese and 1/2 cup Parmesan cheese. I also grabbed the wrong measuring cup for the cream and added 1/2 cup. With those changes, this recipe tasted JUST like the Hot Artichoke Spinach Dip from The Daily Grill in downtown Washington DC (M Street & Connecticut). To set it off even more, I buttered some Ciabata bread, sliced it into bread strips and toasted in a 400 degree oven for 7-10 minutes. All I can say is MAGNIFICENT and feel free to unbutton your pants when you eat this!!
