Chef John's Lemon Bars
I followed the recipe exactly. Both the crust and lemon layer were way overdone with the stated times. The crust was powdery and crumbled apart, and the lemon layer had an ugly brown crust that was hard to camouflage with a light sprinkling of powdered sugar. The lemon layer was plenty tart and smelled good (I absolutely love all things lemon), but it was too sweet and too thin. The crust was bland, and with such a thin lemon layer, it dominated each bite. It's not worth tweaking.

Chef John's Caramel Chicken
Chef John is the best! I love all his recipes, but this one stands out as spectacular. It's so easy, and the flavors are marvelously complex and rich. We practically licked our plates. I did not, and would not, change a single thing. This blows away any of those syrups full of junk in a bottle. Thank you Chef John.

Green Beans with Cherry Tomatoes
This is a great combination of flavors and it's really easy to prepare. It also makes a great presentation, and there is enough sauce left in the pan to drizzle on plain pasta. The first time I made it exactly as written, and the second time I omitted the sugar. Grape tomatoes are so sweet the sugar wasn't necessary.
