Crepes with Spinach, Bacon and Mushroom Filling
This is a good general recipe for crepes, allowing for a variety of substitutions in the filling. The bechemel brought the filling together wonderfully, but the sauce... I'm not sure how that was supposed to work. I followed the directions exactly and got a thin, runny, much too lemony liquid. It took about 10 minutes of constant whisking on medium heat to acheive enough thickening to call it a sauce. It wasn't terrible, but the lemon was overpowering and it had a slightly grainy texture.

Pan-Seared Duck Breast with Blueberry Sauce
The rich and varied ingredient list made me think that this would be the perfect dish for some wild duck breasts that a friend gave us. Unfortunately, it just wasn't enough to take the gamey-ness out of the meat and the overall sentiment of our family was that the flavors were just too overpowering - too many different tastes that didn't seem to mesh well. I don't know if it would be different with store-bought duck, but I probably won't be giving this a second try:(

Unbelievably Awesome Barbeque Chicken Pizza
The simple addition of the sesame oil made the flavor of the chicken sing! After cooking, I shredded it up and put it back in the pan to coat with the yummy sauce. I used my homemade crust with a little mesquite seasoning mixed in, omitted the cilantro (didn't have any but will try it next time), and added an extra cup of colby-jack cheese. This is a keeper!
