Roquefort Pear Salad
My husband hates any type of bleu cheese so I used feta instead. Otherwise followed the recipe exactly and it was fantastic. I could have used a tad bit less dressing, but that's my personal taste.

Chicken With Mushrooms
Im giving this 4 stars because I changed the recipe, if it was written as I made it, I would have def given 5! Went over tons of reviews and made the following changes: 1) sauteed mushrooms (i used baby bellas, yum yum) in 2 cloves of minced garlic and olive oil. 2) extra seasoned my bread crumbs, I only had plain ones on hand but even if I had seasoned ones I still would have added extra spices (i use an italian season grinder you can buy in the spice aisle, one of my best kitchen tools!) 3) added can of cream of mushroom soup with 2/3 cup chicken broth. I added the cheese at the last 10min of baking, then I turned oven off and left the dish in there for another 5 min to set up/thicken. Served over white rice, it was amazing!!!

Tomato Cucumber Salad II
My mom has made this recipe since I was a kid, only difference is no garlic, and adds fresh squeezed lemon juice. I will give the garlic a try! Also, I have always felt the longer the dressing has to marinate, the better the salad, sometimes we make this the night before for a better flavor.
