Double Layer Pumpkin Cheesecake
My primary complaint is this lacks oomph. Not enough tart flavor on the cheesecake portion and it lacks that dense, cheesy richness. Tasty- but in a sweet whipped type of way. Not enough pumpkin flavor on the second layer. Made as-is there is nothing wrong with this recipe- still tasty and simple. But there are a LOT of 5 stars reviews here from people who made significant changes- which I think skews what you expect. I make cheesecake once a year and I want "wow". This is good, but not 5 star.

Seven Layer Taco Dip
One of the very few recipes I follow to a tee. Very good for parties and super easy. Do yourself a big favor though and use good, fresh salsa. I also use refried blacks beans from a nutrition standpoint. Make sure the cream cheese is super soft or it won't blend. Hard to get this into the car for a party without eating it.

Asian Lettuce Wraps
Only gave it 4 because it just doesn't taste right with beef. Cut chicken breasts into strips and marinated in (CHEAT here) Lawry's Sesame Garlic for about 20 min. Cook in wok for 3-4 minutes with a cover to retain moisture but did not cook completely. Removed and covered for 5-10 minutes then chopped finely. Followed rest of recipe and then added chicken to sauce. I rarely follow recipes perfectly but other than chicken change everything was very good.
