Crustless Cranberry Pie
Very, very good. Easy, simple ingredients, and different from a lot of holiday desserts. I read other reviews and used the 1/4 t. almond, 3/4 t. vanilla and 1/2 t. orange extracts. A full t. orange wouldn't have been too much, but I was being cautious the first time around. I also used 1/2 c. lightly toasted almonds in place of the walnuts. I baked it in an 8" square pan because it just sounded like a recipe that would cut better that way.

Family Casserole
Everything about this recipe cried out "Fantastic! Why didn't I think of that?" I used 4c. cubed chicken breast for my meat-loving family, fresh cooked broccoli, no mushrooms (just didn't seem to "go") or water chestnuts, then added 3/4 c. plain Greek yogurt and 1/2 c. total chicken broth (because it was dry, as other reviewers noted). I did NOT add extra cheese, as I have been trying to cut back on fat in my cooking. Well, long story short, the dish was pretty bland and disappointing, especially after all that prep. I think I've narrowed the problem down to the chicken. There was so much of it and it was unseasoned. And fresh garlic is the missing ingredient. I'm giving 4 stars because the recipe has so much promise - but it ain't there yet, in my kitchen.

Vanilla Glaze
I've been baking from scratch for 30 years. This glaze recipe is the best I've ever tried. Kids and adults in my family had grown tired of buttercream frosting (except for very special occasions). Yet it's the butter that makes this glaze so satisfying. I use 2 1/2 tablespoons milk, as suggested by others.
