Sweet Plantain Pie
At the suggestion of someone else, I used frozen Goya plantains to cut back on the work a little. I thought the filling for the recipe was tasty, but the plantains were overly sweet. I was hoping they'd taste a bit more savory, like in plantain chips. I don't think I'll make this again, as only 2 of the 6 of us liked it at all, but if I did, I'd try it with plantains that aren't overripe. I won't use the Goya ones again (personal taste).

Sauteed Apples
Easy delicious side dish for pierogi and sausage dinner. From others' suggestions, I added 1 t. vanilla, only 1 t. cornstarch and a dash of salt.

Chef John's Caramel Chicken
This was really good. I watched the video since some people mentioned that it was helpful in getting the sauce to come out right. I didn't have fish sauce so subbed oyster sauce. Instead of jalapenos, I sliced two bell peppers (going for kid friendly). At the end, I added a bit of Thai chili sauce for spice (to the dishes of the people in the family who like some kick to it) since I'd skipped the jalapenos. Will definitely make again.
