Chocolate Covered Potato Chips
I made these exactly as written. It's a good 'launching point'...the flavor is good and it's pretty easy. My 3 stars is based on the recipe as written. The second time I made them, I did so based on what I learned from the first time: I used candy coating discs with just a handful of chocolate chips thrown in. Great flavor and they set up much firmer than straight chocolate chips. No need to worry about the temperature...just whisk and 'nuke' til fully melted. I used ridged Kettle chips. They're sturdier, hold up better to the chocolate and you actually get a potato chip flavor afterwards. I held an end of the chip, dipped all but about 1/4 of the chip into the chocolate, gently wiped the excess chocolate off on the side of the bowl, laid the chip on a cooling rack (laid over a jelly roll pan) and added just a SMALL pinch of popcorn salt across the top. We're huge fans of the salty/sweet combo and this is the 'icing on the cake' for that. Allowed them to 'set' and stored in an airtight container.

Beef Pot Roast
Loved this ! The more color you get on the sear, the more flavor your roast will have. And a cast iron skillet is perfect for this recipe, as it goes from stove top to oven and the cast iron will get you a sear that no other pan can. When you're plating this, scoop up a generous portion of the onions and garlic off the bottom of the pan and serve them over some great mashed potatoes. They were the absolute best part of this !!! One warning: Watch the roast weight. I did a 2 pound but failed to reduce the cooking time as the original recipe is written for a 4 pound roast. It came a bit overdone (still delicious) but that was entirely MY fault.

Bake Sale Lemon Bars
As written, not tangy enough for me and it had zero lemon flavor. (to be fair, I want to KNOW I'm eating a lemon bar) Then I made them using the "most helpful" changes. Too eggy. The search continues...
