Malibu Bay Breeze
This was way too sweet. I liked the ingredients that were involved, but there was too much pineapple juice and not enough alcohol. This is essentially juice with a splash of rum in it.

Delicious Ham and Potato Soup
I found this to be a bit boring. I didn't have any leftover ham, so I bought a 7 oz ham steak which gave me twice as much ham as I needed; I ended up tossing a little extra into the soup, which I probably shouldn't have done. FYI, 2 TBLSP of bouillon normally mixes with 6 cups of water, so this recipe is changing that ratio... meaning you probably shouldn't be substituting chicken broth. 3.5 cups of potatoes ended up being 1.25 pounds. I left out the salt and reduced the pepper to 1/4 tsp. I tasted it and because it was bland, I tossed in an 8 oz package of shredded cheddar, which helped. For those of you who thought the sauce was too thin, you just didn't cook it long enough - if you used a small saucepan, it will require more time than the recipe indicates... just keep with it until it's the consistency that you want.

Angel Hair Pasta with Garlic Shrimp and Broccoli
I really wanted to like this, but found it to be bland. I didn't add any hot sauce, so I guess that could be part of the reason. I don't believe angel hair past comes in a 12 oz box. I suggest using a 16 oz box of whatever pasta you like and then double all the other ingredients. Use large shrimp instead of jumbo so that you have better distribution. Watch the salt... I felt this called for too much. I had the leftovers for lunches and the flavor improved as it aged.
