Flan de Coco (Coconut Flan)
I used 1/2c coconut créme coffee creamer, and therefore omitted the extra half cup sugar, milk and coconut. It provided enough coconut flavor, and there was ample sweetness from the condensed milk. I had to drink some milk to wash down all the sweet! The "caramel" was a failure. It didn't taste altogether burned, but it certainly didn't give my flan any flair. I baked in a 9" pie dish, but there was more milk mixture than space in my dish, so I put the remaining extras in a 9"square, and put that in a water bath since it didn't have caramel in the bottom. When I inverted the square, it didn't come out, Duh, so I cut it down the middle, and lay it in a plate with a spatula. The pie plate did invert easily. Between the two, they are okay, but because of the overcooked sugar, i did prefer the square.

Upside Down Chicken Rice
I didn't use any oil whatsoever in the recipe. The aroma of cinnamon while cooking was nice. As for the flavors, I suspect I must have added too much pepper, since I didn't measure, just eyeballed it. It left a lingering spice in my mouth. I didn't really care for the nuts in mine (my husband initially thought it was chicken bones). I added peas as suggested, and didnt have raisins as recommended. Overall, it reminded me of paella without the seafood, and cinnamon in its place.

Creamy Macaroni and Cheese
While I like the recipe, I still wanted it to be more flavorful and creamy. Instead, I suspect from parmesan cheese, it was still grainy in texture. It needs some more salt, has a slightly sweet taste (evaporated milk, or dijon mustard?) , and maybeq more pepper. One pan cooking was good. Though, I did pour it into an aluminum pan at 350 for 15-20 min to let it set and keep warm while I fried chicken. This made it more solid than a creamy noodles dish. Thus, the creaminess mentioned above may be my own fault.
