Chef John's Perfect Mashed Potatoes
Followed recipe as written, and it was fantastic. I usually cut the potatoes into smaller pieces, but the technique shown here really improved the texture of the potatoes. Will keep this recipe for many meals!

Broccoli Cashew Salad
This is the closest I could find to the salad at the local grocery store; we tried to reverse-engineer the salad, and this recipe is fairly close to our guess; fantastic as a side dish or as lunch. My husband loves this, too.

Ground Beef Shepherd's Pie
I don't think I did things the right way for this. I hadn't made anything like this before, but I inherited a Dutch Oven and thought this might be a great dish to try. It turned out to be a gooey, greasy mess. I don't think I should have left the lid on during the entire baking portion, I probably used ground beef with too much fat, and even though I made a ton of mashed potatoes to go on top they didn't create the correct ratio of beef to potato to veggie. Overall, it was a bland-tasting, yucky, gross-colored first effort. My husband was a great sport, saying that it "wasn't too bad". I'm giving this a 3 because it seems many of the recipes I use through this site are bland, but the bulk of the problem was my error in preparation.
