Real Homemade Tamales
Im only giving this 4 stars because I had to make a lot of changes. As written it is very bland and heavy. The first batch I made the masa turned out very plain and heavy too. I made another batch the next day and I made many changes based on others input. I cooked pork shoulder with an onion and a whole head of garlic, separated. I used the pork broth to mix with the masa. To the chili sauce I added an onion and 6 cloves of garlic and some chili powder and cumin and lots of salt, blended it all up and mixed half with the meat and half with the masa. I also added sliced pickled jalapenos to the meat mix. I also like to add 1 black olive and a thin slice of potato to each tamale after I put the meat filling on the masa. My 2nd batch turned out so well. I also made some with a strip of green chile and cheese, they were yummy too. Im so glad I finally decided to make some tamales on my own. I cant wait to experiment with other fillings.

Quick and Easy Green Chile Chicken Enchilada Casserole
I thought the texture of this was excellent. I didnt have a gas stove or grill so I just put the tortillas on a cast iron skillet and charred them that way. I will make this again but next time I will season the chicken much more, and add some sauteed onions with garlic and peppers. It was ok, it just needed more.

Beef Stroganoff III
I followed the recipe almost exactly. The only difference I made was to braise the meat in broth for 45 minutes until it was tender, then I added it to the rest of the sauce after I had thickened it with flour. I didnt want to have to stand over the stove stirring a thickened sauce for 45 min. I thought this was very good. It was definitely not the normal beefy flavor that Im used to with beef stroganoff with the white wine and mustard but it was very good.
