Soupier Mac and Cheese
I have tried several different homemade Mac and Cheese recipes. This is one of the easiest to make. Some take many ingredients, some turn out pasty and blah. This one took only a few ingredients and had a good flavor. I used cream of celery soup instead of mushroom because my son doesn't like mushrooms. I cooked three cup of macaroni, but didn't use it all. I mixed the soup and cheese in my 2 qt. casserole dish and added macaroni until the dish was full. Not all the macaroni would fit and I think it might have turned out a bit dry if I had added it all. I think 2 generous cups would be enough for a 2 qt casserole dish. The recipe did not say what size dish to use. I thought the flavor was quite good considering the recipe doesn't call for much in the way of seasoning. We added salt at the table to our individual taste. The crispy onions on top are a great addition which we all enjoyed. I will make this again.

Norwegian Sour Cream and Raisin Pie
I thought this pie had way too much spice and so did my husband.The pie turned out fine as far as consistency and baked in exactly the time stated on the recipe. I won't make this one again, but if I did I would add only the cinnamon and omit the cloves and nutmeg completely, and maybe add a little vanilla. Some reviewers mention they would chop the raisins, I think that would be good also.

Smothered Pheasant
This recipe is perfect as written. I used 3 whole pheasant breasts with bone-in since that is what we had from the hunt. I prepared the recipe just as written and served it with mashed potatoes and broccoli on the side. It was delicious! The gravy is not pretty to look at since the half-n-half curdles during the cooking, but it is delicious and rich tasting. The whole family loved it. I can't wait to make this again.
