Buffalo Chicken Dip
This was a good basic recipe. The changes I made were to use Marzetti's Ultimate Bleu Cheese instead of ranch. I also boiled my chicken breasts (about 1.2 pounds) in chicken broth and then shredded them before adding the Frank's (ALWAYS use Frank's--nothing else will give you that "buffalo" flavor). I did not add the cheddar on top. I did spray the dish with butter flavor Pam before cooking so it added that flavor to the end product. There was nothing left after my last party--everyone loved it!

Garlic Prime Rib
This was exceptional! I did a 7 pound bone-in prime rib roast. Made the marinade for the 10 pound roast (adding a sprig of fresh rosemary from our garden). Placed the roast on a cooling rack for cookies placed on top of a 15X10" glass lasagna pan to which I had added 2 cans of beef broth to catch the drippings. Followed reviews of others, starting at 460 for 12 minutes, 400 for 8 minutes and 325 for the rest of the roasting time. Took approx 2 1/2 hours to get the roast to 125 when I took it out of the oven. Covered it in aluminum foil and residual cooking took it to around 138. It turned out SO juicy, moist, tender, and the flavor was fabulous! It was a perfect medium rare! I made this for my husband's birthday and he and the family declared this one a winner!!

Chocolate Ganache
Used this one on top of a chocolate cheesecake for my daughter's birthday (she is a consumate chocoholic) and WOW!! When it firmed up it was shiny and what flavor!!! I added a few Tbsps of Kaluah but I'm sure any liquer would be fabulous in this (I'm thinking Grand Marnier next time). It made an otherwise ordinary chocolate cheesecake extraordinary!!
