Easy Chicken Enchiladas
I made this last night. I can only give 3 stars because I made changes and I liked it but my husband wasn't a huge fan. I added a can of corn and used enchilada sauce in place of salsa. I also added some onion, pepper, and garlic powder while cooking chicken and topped it off with enchilada sauce and added cheese during last 5 minutes of baking. It was pretty good but the flour tortillas just get mushy and fall apart in some spots and get hard and tough in others. I wonder if corn tortillas, lightly fried, would work better if covered completely with sauce and cheese. Overall I liked the filling and will probably try this again with a couple changes.

Tater Tot Casserole
I made this last night. The great thing about this dish is like shepherd's pie, there are infinite ways to make it your own. I made some changes. I did use the ketchup and worcestershire sauce (in fact I can't imagine how bland it would be without it!). I only had a family-size can of cream of mushroom soup and I used about 3/4 of it. I used dehydrated onion because my husband doesn't like to bit into pieces of onion. While cooking meat and onion I added in some black pepper and garlic salt. I added 3/4 can whole kernel corn and 3/4 can french cut green beans. I topped the beef/veggie mixture with shredded cheddar and topped it with wall-to-wall tater tots. I baked it for 35-40 minutes so the tater tots would get crispy. It was good but still "missing something" and a tad bland. My 5 year old and I topped it with some ketchup before eating and that was pretty good. I thought reheating would be bad because the tater tots wouldn't be crunchy but it was actually better! The flavors had time to get stronger and mix. I still had to top it with ketchup though. Next time I will double up on the ketchup and worcestershire sauce and maybe add some more spices. Also, my husband suggested a "man's" tater tot casserole with crisp, crumbled bacon and BBQ sauce instead of ketchup and maybe the SLIGHTEST drop of liquid smoke. Hmmmmm...he may be on to something!

Bananas Foster I
I used the changes "awesome in tummy" suggested but cut the brown sugar down some. I also cut my bananas in smaller pieces. Word to the wise...when you light the liqueur and carefully pour it in the banana flames up A LOT. I poured over high quality vanilla bean ice cream (also great over cinnamon ice cream) and it was amazing. VERY rich. I had a lot left over so I put it in the fridge and the next morning I cut up two rolls of Grands cinnamon rolls into quarters, mixed with leftover bananas foster and baked as monkey bread. It was simply divine!
