Single-Serving California-Style Chicken Cordon Bleu
Very Good 4.3/5

Cookbook creator says: Tasted Great! Ended up baking the chicken for about 20 minutes in the oven. Should probably wait till 10 minutes from end to add the cheese and tomatoes. Added avocado after done baking.

Incredible! 5.0/5
(1 rating)

Cookbook creator says: Was ok. Think I used too much cilantro. And added shredded parmesan cheese while still boiling the sauce, which caused the cheese to clump up and attach a lot of the cilantro leaves and garlic. Next time add cheese when serving.

Chewy Molasses Ginger Cookies
Very Good 4.1/5
(110 ratings)

Cookbook creator says: These were ok. Better the day after, once they had a chance to "age." Should smoosh the balls down a bit more because they didn't spread much while baking.

Butavan Brownies
Incredible! 5.0/5
(12 ratings)

Cookbook creator says: Didn't care for these. The texture of the brownies weirded me out. Didn't get to use the bhutavan flavor. The pumpkin in it was a little too over powering. Aaron and co-workers liked them.

Easy Low Fat Individual Peach Cobblers
Good 3.9/5
(58 ratings)

Cookbook creator says: Good small serving dessert recipe. Not sweet enough yet. Added vanilla to the batter, and cinnamon on top of peaches and batter. Think might need to add sugar/splenda to peaches mix, or more sugar to topping.
