Re:Paprika Chicken with Kielbasa

A tasty 5-star recipe for us. I found this recipe while looking for a dish in which I could use both Kielbasa that I had just purchased and several left over chicken thighs (from another meal). The other ingredients were in my pantry. The dish comes together fast. Yes, it's juicy but that's what we loved over pasta noodles! Serve it in shallow bowls if this is a concern. Can be spiced up with more garlic or onion as you like.

Re:Chewy Brownies

I baked these for a scant 30 minutes and they turned out perfect. Please wrap carefully as they do dry out fast. My grandchildren are addicted to "box" brownies and they voted this recipe hands-down superior. I also thought they were delicious and very easy to make.

Re:Glazed Orange Pound Cake

I had just purchased a half-bushel of navel oranges freshly picked from a resident grower at his road-side stand, so when this recipe arrived in my mailbox I was delighted and knew I had to try it right away. The cake is indeed moist and evenly fine textured with all the fragrance that only grated zest can depart. For my taste, orange pound cake tops all other types of pound cakes, with lemon ranking second. Thanks for this recipe! I will be making this again soon!

Re:Chocolate Bark with Ginger and Pistachios

The white chocolate wouldn't melt. It clumped into hard sticky granules. Otherwise the recipe was fine.

Re:White Bean Soup with Wild Mushrooms & Chive Mascarpone

Sophisticated soup especially nice as a first course. For those cautious about salt, I've found that using about half the amount of salt in most soup/casserole dishes is more than enough for flavor. A diner can always add a bit more from the shaker after the dish is served.

Re:Chicken Braised with Red Wine Vinegar and Tomatoes

Fabulous! Very grown-up flavors. We enjoyed this meal and plan to serve to company this weekend. My husband suggested serving an array of fine olives on the side.
