Creme Brulee French Toast
I loved this recipe and only made a few minor changes. I halved the recipe, used two eggs (rather than 2 1/2), swapped Triple Sec for the Grand Marnier, and used as many slices of bread as would fit in an 8x8 square pan (I think it was 5), with the crusts left on. I'm normally indifferent to sweet breakfast foods, but this was so rich and delicious, it was almost like eating dessert for breakfast. Definitely on the "make again" list!

Classic Macaroni Salad
I think the dressing for this is perfect as-is and it tastes as good as the stuff you buy in the deli section! I do leave out the celery and carrot though, since we don't like them raw, and increase the peppers to compensate. I'll also substitute fresh red peppers for the pimientos if that's what we have on hand.

Spicy Orange Beef
This was pretty tasty. I subbed a smaller amount of red wine vinegar for the sherry, so it ended up being a little tarter than I would have liked. I also followed reviewers recommendations and marinated the steak first in soy sauce, garlic, ginger, and a little lemon juice and vinegar. I added stirfried onion, bell pepper, and water chestnuts to the sauce as well. as well. Good base recipe.
