Creamed Beef
It was good but I changed a bunch of things that I think made it a lot better. First I used left over roast beef that I cross cut so it made short fibers. I also added 1 tsp each of salt, pepper and tarragon and used frozen mixed vegetables instead of just peas. I cut back the milk to 3 cups and used 3 T corn starch instead of all that flour to thicken it. The tarragon really adds a nice touch.

D' Best Chicken N' Dumplings
The chicken part was very good but the dumplings were just short of terrible. They were flat, doughy and chewy. I questioned whether the recipe said baking powder instead of baking soda as they didn't raise at all but it says baking soda so that's what I used. Maybe southerners like them like that but even Bisquick is much better.

Pork Marsala
Really good. I substituted Melot for Marsala because I wanted to drink the rest of the bottle. I thought it would be a good recipe but as I ate it it tasted better with every bite. 2 thumbs and 10,000 taste buds up!
