Easy and Delicious Chicken and Rice Casserole
I made this dish late last night for today's dinner. I followed the recipe as is for the most part with 3 exceptions...I used drumsticks which I lightly seasoned and slightly browned in olive oil and a pat of butter. In addition to that, I also used 1 and a 1/2 cups of saffron rice and cut the onion soup mix down to 1/2 of a pack. As others have said, it is a great base/starter recipe and on that note I rate it a 4. For ease and simplicity I rate it a 5. As for taste I rate it 3.5 stars. The taste was just ok, nothing spectacular to write home about. I'll wait to see if my finicky 8 year old likes it. I will definitely make this again, but I'll tweak it to make it my own. I stumbled across this recipe looking for ideas using cream of chicken soup, chicken, and frozen spinach. I found several recipes and decided to try this one first. Btw, my dish didn't turn out salty, probably because I only used 1/2 a pack of onion soup mix and extra water for the extra rice I added.

Grandma's Egg Custard Pie
Thanks for this quick and easy recipe. I made this last night and I was not disappointed. I followed it exactly as written with the addition of the extra yolk leftover from the egg white. The custard was smooth and silky on my palate, nor was it heavy in texture. However, I still feel something is amiss. Still, it does taste good; next time I will cut back on the sugar somewhat.

Manicotti Alla Romana
This was a good base recipe, however, I did make several changes most notably substituting italian sausage (2 lbs)for ground beef, omiting the chicken bouillion altogether, fresh spinach in liue of frozen, increased onion and cloves of garlic, extra italian seasoning/basil/oregano; my sauce was made with butter, sauteed/minced garlic and onion, flour, salt and white pepper to taste, and 1/2 cup of fresh grated Asiago cheese.
