Beef Nacho Casserole
Made this recipe last night. There is none left. He ate this like he was starving and then asked for more. He had another heaping plate for dinner. He asked me when I was going to make it again. I liked this very much. Was thrilled with it, except the fact that it didn't serve very nicely, and did sort of resemble a bowl of dog food (as other reviewers also pointed out. I expected it to look like your photo, which was very appealing. It did not. But it tasted incredible, so I am willing to forgive. A lot. I am so thrilled to be moving beyond the sphaghetti/meatloaf/lasagna rotation. As one other reviewer suggested, I did layer the casserole, but only put cheese on the top and not between the layers. Cover your casserole before baking (we tented with foil). I read several reviews before making this recipe. I made the following changes/additions: I used 2 lbs of ground beef (package it came in). I used sour cream instead of salad dressing, ~ 1 c. (had to use it). I used one packet of taco seasoning (to which I added ~ 1/2 tsp each: smoked paprika, garlic powder, cayenne and oregano). I added one finely chopped chipotle pepper with about 1/2 tbs. adobo sauce that it was packed in. I added the following vegetables: one can of mushrooms, 1 finely chopped red pepper, 2 med. finely chopped onions and one grated carrot. I added ~3/4 cup of chili sauce I cooked all of these ingredients with the beef before baking. Will make repeatedly. Fantastic!

Orangey Turkey Legs
I was looking for a way to use up some turkey legs that I'd bought on a whim. I was really excited about this recipe. I was looking forward to it, but I really feel like it fell flat. I read some of the other reviewers recipes where they stated that the orange flavour wasn't terribly obvious. To try and circumvent this, I added some apricot/mandarin jam. Even with this addition... it was still lacklustre. The other reviewers were right, though. The meat was very moist. I liked that about this recipe. I think that the natural flavors of the dark turkey meat really overpowered the delicacy of the mandarins. I think that this marinade would be more appropriate with chicken, or even white turkey meat. I may try again with this change, as the marinade is quite good, but chances are, I will not make this again.

Curried Hummus
I made this for a party (twice) and it was a hit, both times. Loved it. Loved it so much I made home made pita chips to go with it. My husband the curry-hater LOVED this. It was so GOOD. The only reason I didn't give this 5 stars was because I felt it was missing something. So I added some onion....great!
