Spanish Flan
I never liked flan as a child... it always had this taste (kind of like this one turned out!). But, as an adult, I recently tried one that was so delicious... I wanted to give it a chance! I took the advice of others & added a couple drops of lemon juice to the sugar. I swirled it & cooked over low heat it was a beautiful light brown color. I had the dish heating in the oven so it was almost hot. Used blender... I did the water bath. After 1 hr I took it out. I checked it & it was still very watery... so in it went another 45 mins. Again after taking it out it was still watery in the middle. So I didin't use the water bath this time baked another 23 mins. After letting it cool I inverted it all this lovely looking caramel came oozing out... then I tried it. UGGH! the caramel was so unappealing! We all cut off the caramel top & the rest was okay... My hubby & MIL liked it (but then they always liked flan). Now, to be fair it maybe the other suggestions I followed... so I will try this again following the recipe 100%.

Corned Beef and Cabbage I
I had always been wanting to try something like this. I made this for St. Patty's Day. I took the advice of others & added beer (mickey's). And I removed the corned beef when I added the cabbage for the last 15mins. (But, that was more my hubby was hungry & wanted to eat in 15mins not 15 mins for the cabbage & 15 for the beef to rest!) This was soooo YUMMY! I couldn't believe I made this! The entire family ate this without complaint!

Juicy Roasted Chicken
I never know what to do with a whole bird... I have tried different recipes here & there including making the store bought season packet/bag (100 times). My hubby never liked any of them. This one was a winner by all! Even my kids... and my MIL who hates everything... was QUIET! Mine was almost 6 Lbs so I cooked it 2hrs & used real butter. But, didn't change anything else. SO YUMMY, sooo juicy! Hubby even said "This was the best BIRD ever!" So thank you!
