Exquisite Pie
VERY delicious, and seems to be adaptable. Tastes a bit like chess pie, but more complex. I cut down the vanilla to 2t instead of 1T and substituted regular raisins in lieu of golden and it was all good. Other tips: do NOT make this into two pies. I had two deep dish 9" pies and split the batter, then rolled the crust down to the edge of the batter. If you combined into one large pie the top would burn before the middle set, and it's such a rich pie that you wouldn't really want to have a super deep slice. This would go very well with vanilla ice cream. I thought the lemon juice ingredient would impart some lemon flavor - it didn't, and next time I make this I'll be adding some lemon zest and removing the raisins altogether.

Chinese Chicken Fried Rice II
This is a helpful recipe since the ingredients are on hand, but I was underwhelmed at the taste. There was far too much onion - and way too peppery! I did add canned chicken breast and turned this into a main entree. Next time, I'll reduce the pepper onion by at least half.

Mojo Roast Chicken (Pollo Asado)
I made this recipe and used a whole chicken instead of chicken parts. A visiting friend commented that the smell of the marinade was savory and made her hungry. The chicken marinaded for about five hours and that was enough to suffuse much of the meat with garlicky-sweet flavor. The browned bits of seasonings on the skin was a big plus. This fed my family, including picky children, without any complaint, only compliment! I did serve with rice, but could see how with mashed potatoes and turning the pan drippings into gravy it would've been excellent too.
