Jo-Ann's Power Bars
These are amazing! Overall, great nutrition - depending on how much sugar is added via the dried fruit - very filling and EPIC tasty (my stepson's review). The modification I made was inadvertent because I wasn't paying attention: I used 1/3 cup of organic unsweetened apple sauce and 1/3 cup of raw honey. It made the bars moist and chewy so I will keep making them this way!

Mexican Orzo Salad
I have made this dish according to the recipe many times and I love it! When I want more protein, though, I substitute quinoa cooked in vegetable broth. I have also added crumbled feta or small cubes of monterey jack cheese with jalapeno for a slightly different twist.

Spicy Roast Goose with Apple Stuffing
I had the same-sized bird as duenor (review #1) and took full advantage of her research, following her modifications pretty much to the letter and it really does work! Even people who were protesting that they don't like goose, liked this goose. A keeper, for certain!
