Pecan Pie Bars I
This is a really good start to something amazing but i found it lacking a little. Another reviewer stated the crust was a too floury and i agree. i would knock off 1/2 cup of flour next time and keep the salt which i omitted as per other reviewers. depending on that result i may even add a couple TBSP of butter. I also used butter throughout instead of margarine. i would use 100% light brown sugar (or 1/2 and 1/2 white and dark brown) in the filling. I may even add 1/2 tsp of salt to the filling next time i do this - the flavor was a bit lackluster and i think it needs some more richness w/added salt and molasses would help with. also, i found a 25 min bake time after the filling was added to be a bit much. next time i will set the timer to 20 mins and check it then - it wasn't dry by any stretch but it was missing some gooieness. I will def make again as it had the pecan pie taste and texture w/out the "pie" so easier to cut, distribute and eat and of course serving size is smaller (although everyone was going back for 3rds and 4ths so maybe not!!). really good base recipe - i'm glad i gave it a go and will try again with stated tweaks :)

Caribbean Chicken
The only reason I gave this recipe 1 star is because they don't allow you to give it none. There are so many things wrong with this recipe, i'm not even going to bother to give suggestions to fix it...the breadcrumbs end up like oatmeal, the flavors just don't work together, the only good thing about this recipe was the baked nectarines - just make yourself a cobbler w/that beautiful fruit! We ended up literally scraping everything off of the chicken and eating it that way just to keep from having to go out.

Kofta Kebabs
Lamb is out of my price range so i make these with a ground pork/beef combo. These are easy and great! Very similar to a gyro type flavor. I skip the cinnamon and the ginger...I've tried those types of flavors w/meat and its just not my thing but this recipe is amazing without them. They're def better if you mix the meat & spices the day before and let the flavors marry overnight+. I've also made them as meatballs for parties. I make them w/tzatziki or, even better, Barefoot Contessa's Yogurt Mint Sauce on the Food Network site. Deslish!
