Chicken and Green Bean Casserole
To be fair, I made one or two changes for convenience and speed but overall followed the recipe to a "T". I used a roasted chicken from the local grocer which I chopped and boned; added a 1/2 large can of Durkee Fried Onions. I then topped it with both shredded Parmesan and the other half large can of onions. This was THE most amazing dish for a planning meeting for the local Optimist Club. Usually there is so much food that everyone takes home leftovers but I did not even have enough left for my husband to try. Everyone raved about how good it was and I was very impressed. Simple, easy, quick and delicious. That is my idea of the prefect recipe. This earned a full-fledged 5 stars because, as written, it is perfect. Thanks for sharing. In fact, it was so good I made it for a luncheon the next day but saved some for my husband and he said, "KEEPER!" What more can I say than that?

Turkey Tetrazzini a la Stouffers(R)
Normally I hate it when people rate a recipe but makes something totally different but in this case, the sauce is what this dish is about. There is only one word that comes to mind for the sauce:AMAZING. I am rating it 5 stars for the sauce and what it did to my casserole. I did not make the sauce from scratch but used my leftover gravy and added cream and sherry, as well as leftover turkey. From there my dish was completely different but it was this sauce that made it so tantalizingly delicious that my husband called his brother (who is a bachelor for a week while his wife is with their daughter during surgery) and said, "are you hungry? My wife made the most amazing leftovers. You always love her cooking anyway, so come by for leftover-leftovers. He showed up about an hour after we ate and ate some then took half of the leftovers home for several meals. He insisted on getting the recipe so I told him how to use the leftovers but wrote down the sauce recipe. We all loved it so much that even though we did not eat the casserole the way it was made, the sauce is what sets it apart from other leftover casseroles. Margietk, this sauce really made the meal. Thanks.

Unbelievable Rolls
Great recipe for experienced cooks and those not in high altitude areas. I made them and substituted only one thing...margarine is out of the question. Using butter means it actually bakes into the rolls much better, IMHO. I really like recipes for experienced cooks so this was quite simple to me but it is not for someone who doesn't know what temperature "warm" is for adding yeast. Also, the temperature in your kitchen and the humidity level can all affect the outcome.
