Creamy Cheddar Beef Enchiladas
I really didn't know what to expect with this recipe, but it was good! The only thing I did different was add a little cream cheese to the filling for the kiddo. We tasted it before that and it is great as-is. My three-year-old ate an entire serving which makes this 5 stars based on that alone. May not be a favorite for those who aren't fans of sour cream, but we really enjoyed it!! I will experiment with it a little going forward. We suspect chicken would be great in place of the ground beef, and we will top with chopped veggies next time. ----> Edit to add: This recipe does make enough filling to create another pan for the freezer. I didn't assemble the second pan the first night. Instead, I froze the filling alone. My family requested these enchiladas again, the very next night. I defrosted the filling partially in the microwave, then put it in a large pot and heated on low until it was totally thawed. I added whole kernal corn to really bulk it up and about half cup additional cheese. I filled each tortilla with a generous half-cup of filling each and was able to get 6 enchiladas in a pan both nights I made this. I swapped out the cheddar for a blend: Monterey Jack, Cheddar, Queso Quesadilla & Asadero cheeses. The last five minutes of cook time, I topped with fresh onion, olives, and tomato. Yummy! This was great!! It really is VERY versatile, and I maintain that chicken would be a fantastic alternative to beef. I would consider fajita beans in place of refries also!

Spinach Brownies
These are pretty good. I think it would take some changes well. I love the texture and it's not soggy/eggy like a lot of egg-bake type dishes end up being. It would be fun to try with asparagus, artichoke hearts, different cheese varieties, etc. Thanks for sharing!

Cheesecake Lemon Bars
These are great! Very easy! I made them exactly as the recipe is posted, then topped with fresh raspberries and a little raspberry sauce. I cut into squares and made a treat plate for my husband to take to share at work. It was a hit! Thanks for the great recipe!! We will add it to our favorites for sure!
