Chocolate Trifle
Made this over the weekend for a large family dinner and everyone loved it. I did change it a bit: instead of using cool whip with the pudding, I mixed a half pint of whipping cream for 10 minutes with the Kitchen Aid mixer and folded that in. I used vanilla Jello pudding instead of chocolate pudding to contrast the chocolate in the brownies, and then I mistakenly forgot to put in the sweetened condensed milk but it was so delicious! The pudding and cream tasted just like the French pastries I had in France! I didn't put candy on top but brought a bowl of crushed butterfingers (couldn't find Heath bar which would have been perfect) so people could sprinkle them on if they wanted. I used a trifle bowl so I did 3 layers rather than 2. I baked the brownies in a 9x13 glass Pyrex so it felt like I had more to cut up for the recipe. Will make this again just the way I did it here!

Orzo with Parmesan and Basil
I'm rating it a 4 but my husband says it's a 5 star dish and could eat it as an entire meal (even without meat in it and he has to have meat at each dinner). I think next time I'll add asparagus and mushrooms and more cheese. Very yummy though :)

Beef Bourguignon II
Absolutely amazing! I'm not much of a cook (think grilled cheese...) and this was so easy, the house smelled amazing, and my husband was so impressed! I used 2 cloves of garlic, omitted the canned onions, substituted fresh mushrooms for the canned and added them with the onions and carrots. I also used wine to deglaze the pan and scrape up all the little yummy bits before sauteing the veggies. Will definitely make this again, thanks for the recipe!
