Alyson's Broccoli Salad
This is a fabulous salad! Definitely use the red seedless grapes instead of raisins. I didn't have white wine vinegar so I used rice vinegar and it's great! Also used lowfat mayo with no issues. The whole family loves it, always requested for get-togethers.

Smothered Chicken Breasts
My husband loved this, but then, who could resist bacon, cheese and carmelized onion with ANYTHING!? I did add some fresh garlic, can't cook without it. Definitely will be making this again, and loved the easy clean-up!

Lemon Pecan Pound Cake
This cake has good texture and flavor, but is on the dry side. I barely baked it long enough to be done, so it wasn't the baking time. I think this would be better if there was some sour cream or pudding in it for extra moisture. The glaze helps, but not enough. Pound cake implies a pound of butter, and this only calls for 1/2 pound - maybe the recipe was adapted and that's why it's a little off and why the pan size seems to be off as well? I'll try again with tweaking. Good starter recipe, the pecans add a good flavor and crunch.
