Tuna Mornay
I didn't really understand this recipe. For example, I didn't see the point of baking it in the oven -- the eggs are precooked, the tuna is canned, etc. Why bake at 350? I also think more effort should be made to thicken the sauce -- 2 cups of milk heated and stirred for 3 minutes gives 3 cups of hot milk. The end result is a very hot, runny and fairly colorless liquid soup with tuna, eggs, etc. If I were to do this again, I'd begin with a bechamel sauce and add cream or whole milk a few tablespoons at a time if needed. I'd also skip baking it in the oven.

Best Beef Stroganoff
I left out the Burgundy because I didn't have any on hand. I wouldn't recommend adding the raw steak to the cooking onion mixture. It doesn't develop a beef flavor. Better to brown the beef in a separate pan and add it, together with some of the juices, to the onion mixture. 14 ounces of consomme makes a pretty liquid sauce. If you have absorbent noodles they will take some of the liquid. But I'd recommend making the thickening liquid (flour and water) with 3 tablespoons of flour. You don't have to use the whole amount, just add as necessary. (I ended up using 3 Tbs of flour). Either that, or start by using only 9-10 ounces of the consomme and adding more as needed to keep the sauce at the right consistency. As to the lemon juice, that can really overpower a dish. I took 1/2 of a lemon and "forked" it over the pan a couple of times. I probably added less than 1/2 of a teaspoon. A little fresh lemon juice goes a long way. These exceptions aside, this is a really nice and easy recipe. I wouldn't hesitate to serve it to company. Thanks for letting us have this dish!

Easy Minute Steaks
Nice recipe. Next time, I think I'll use all the onions and only some of the sauce. I ended up with cube steaks in a small "lake" of hot soup. But tasty nonetheless, w/mashed potatoes and snap peas.
