The Best Lemon Bars
Loved, loved, loved these! Made this with only minor adjustments. I like a good level of tartness, so I used the juice of 3 lemons instead of 2 and bumped the flour from 1/4 to 1/3 cup to account for the added liquid. PERFECT...except for the too thick crust. This will definitely be my go-to recipe from now on, but I'll cut the crust ingredients by 1/3 and keep the added lemon juice and flour to get that tartness just right!

Bread Pudding II
Overall, I think this is a very good recipe and the flavor and texture were great, but I had to rate it down based on the overwhelming sweetness. It was so sweet, I ate three bites and couldn't continue, and no one I served it to finished their portion either. I will make it again and cut the sugar down to about 1/2 cup and hopefully that will bump this up to a 5 star recipe for me. As is, it's a 3.

Carne Guisada I
Sorry, but I can only give this 3 stars. I followed the recipe with only 1 small change, using a can of diced tomatoes with chipotles instead of stewed tomatoes. Even adding the chipotles, this was way too mild on the heat scale. But my main complaint was the overwhelming tomato flavor. A can of tomatoes, plus 2 chopped tomatoes (and I only used 2 med roma's) overpowered the dish. I will keep looking for my go-to carne guisada recipe.
