Halibut Supreme
This review might be unfair, because I used tilapia and low fat versions of sour cream and mayo. However, my three stars relate more to the taste of the sauce (not the fish), so maybe the comments on the use of low fat ingredients might be helpful for some. To the recipe's credit, it was very easy and quick. I thought I'd like the sauce, but found it to be lacking much complexity or depth. I do a baked chicken dish with the sour cream and mayo with lemon juice and curry that is just wonderful. I had hoped the same for this, but it just didn't do it for me. My 2 year old ate it up, which was good. My husband cleaned his plate, but also said something was missing in the taste of the sauce. He said he would have given it four stars. I think full fat versions of mayo and sour cream might have been better.

Layered Peppermint Bark
AMAZING! and very addictive. My husband does not like peppermint bark (he thinks it's too sweet), but he likes this. It is very easy to make. I didn't have any problem at all with the dark chocolate center being too soft, in fact it was perfect. It is slightly softer than the white chocolate, which makes it heavenly. I wonder if those who had problems used milk chocolate instead of dark chocolate (I saw that some had). Milk chocolate would have a different consistancy. This has the best balance of sweet, crunch, softer chocolate, mint. It was a huge hit on Christmas. If you have concern about how to crush the mints like I did, it was very easy. I put them in a ziplock bag, placed the bag on top of folded paper towels on the concrete step outside, and pounded it with a mallet. Fast, easy, not messy, and kind of fun. If you're thinking about making this, don't hesitate, go get that chocolate and get started! I do store it in the fridge, and like to sit it on the counter for a few minutes before eating to let it warm up just a bit.

Easy Corn Pudding
IF YOU DOUBLE THE RECIPE, DOUBLE THE TIME! I had read some of the reviews that said it took a little longer if you doubled, so I gave it another 10 min (total 40 min), and it was just as soupy as it was going in. I moved it to a commercial convection oven (church kitchen), and after 20 or so more minutes, it was set. I added the eggs as other recommended (4 eggs for the doubled recipe) and skipped the sour cream. It fit perfectly in an aluminum toss-away casserole pan. Despite the frustration with the cook time, it was really good. I liked the texture - not as dense as corn bread, but a little more so than my other corn pudding recipes. Just plan on an hour in the oven if you double it. I will make this again. I even plan on using the regular sized recipe for a regular family meal, and I don't know that I've ever made corn pudding that wasn't for a pot luck. Very easy and good.
