Japanese Chicken Wings
These were really good! I followed the recipe exactly with one exception, I fried the wings in a mix of peanut and olive oil instead of butter. Worked fine. I also used wing sections (about 26-28). Be careful not to place your pan too low in the oven or you'll burn the sugar in the sauce and that's a difficult mess to clean up. Unless you're using a good quality non-stick pan, line it with heavy duty aluminum foil. I turned mine once, half way through the baking time, which sufficed for basting. You can really smell the vinegar while these are in the oven, but don't worry, the end result is sweet and delicious. Mine were done in 35 mins. Will definitely make these again.

Fabulous Wet Burritos
These were pretty good! I did adjust a few things. First, I'm not a fan of refried beans, so I only used about half of the can. Good call, personally speaking, as it was plenty bean-y enough with that amount. Second, discovered that I didn't have a can of tomato soup but had a larger can of the enchilada sauce than called for, so in essence, I made that substitution. Wasn't impressed with Hormel brand chili, but that was no fault of this recipe, I'll try a different one next time. In the end, I thought the filling was just a tad bland (maybe because the beans drag it down for me), but I still really enjoyed them and they were simple enough to make. Oh, I topped mine with the lettuce and tomato instead of putting those inside (plus some sour cream - yum!). I'll certainly make these again, thanks for the recipe!

Cheesecake Brownies
Ohhh, these are Good! I didn't have access to a hand mixer today, so I used 8oz of "whipped" cream cheese (which I let sit on the counter for a while) and a metal whisk - seemed to work just fine. Used Betty Crocker Fudge Brownies box mix and I thought there was a little too much of the cream cheese mixture (in comparison to the brownie mix in the pan), so I only used about 3/4 of it. And I did add 1tsp vanilla as suggested by so many others. Lined my 13x9" baking dish with parchment paper, which I definitely recommend for easy removal and cutting. Mine took 10-12 mins longer to bake than the package instructions (so for those using an 8x8 pan... yeah, probably not going to work properly). They look pretty and taste Fantastic! Best once completely chilled. And THANK YOU to Sue for mentioning the use of a plastic knife to cut brownies. I'd never heard that tip before and it works beautifully! Thanks for sharing this recipe - love them.
