Scallop Scampi
It was okay, but not that impressive. It seems that the cheese, despite the problems of being lumpy, is really important. Without it, the sauce was really liquidy and lacked some flavor. Next time (if there is one) I would reduce the liquid by half.

Chicken Breasts with Herb Basting Sauce
Tasted excellent and was easy enough to make. Only made a few minor changes (omitted onion and pepper sauce). Used boneless/skinless chicken (grocery store was out of bone-in with skin). Still tasted great and came out nice and moist. Served with risotto and it was well recieved.

Easiest Pot Roast Ever
Pretty good, but made some changes and it went over well at a dinner party. Used 1 packet of onion soup powder and 1 can of beef broth instead of the bouillon cubes and water. Rubbed the roast with salt, pepper, thyme. Cut slits into the roast and inserted minced garlic.
