Puppy Chow I
I used a 14 oz. box of Corn Chex, but next time, I would decrease the amount of cereal to 12 oz. to ensure more coating for the individual pieces. I also always add vanilla extract to enhance the flavor. Overall, this is a great, easy dessert snack with a simple recipe. It's nice to have on hand during the holidays.

Tartar Sauce I
I am so happy to have found this recipe! I've been making my own tartar sauce for years, and while it was good, it wasn't what I found in excellent seafood restaurants. However, this tartar sauce is exactly what I've been looking for! It is the addition of the onion that really puts it over the top for me. I grate mine finely. I do not use the full amount of lemon juice, but I do use a squirt, and I always add a little Old Bay for extra oomph.

Orzo with Parmesan and Basil
Excellent flavor! However, you will need more than 14.5 oz of chicken broth. I'm sure I used at least 1/2 cup more than that. Definitely keep an eye on it while cooking and add more broth as needed. Also, if you don't like salty food, be sure to get the low sodium chicken broth.
