Re:Caramelized Pear Upside-Down Cake

Just a lovely sweet thing. Soft tender cake, with just the right spicing. The juice of the pears mixed with the caramelized sugar makes a wonderful combination.A huge improvement over the tough and chewy pineapple upside down cakes from the '50's that I remember.

Re:Sweet-Sour Red Cabbage

Candied cabbage!My instincts said 1 cup of sugar was too much-I should have listened to my inner cook. 2/3 cup of dark brown sugar would have plenty.

Re:Grilled Chicken with Rosemary & Caramelized Lemons

The carmelized lemons were horribly bitter-the flavor spread to the chicken and it was not edible. The chickens were brined for 8 hours-they were plenty salty.

Re:Devilish Eggs

strange texture. Spicing was ok. The vegetarians at the gathering said it was not a good use of tofu.

Re:Individual Beef Croustades with Boursin & Mushrooms

One of the best things ever was the concensus of the guests at the dinner party when I made this recipe. Mushrooms and peppercorn Boursin compliment the flavor of the filet. Impressive dinner that can be made ahead.

Re:Summer Vegetable Soup with Dill

A lovely chilled soup for a summer evening. I do recommend making it ahead. Assembled at noon-tasted it at three p.m-added more pepper. At 8 p.m-flavors had combined and the buttermilk/yogurt had mellowed. The leftover soup had lost its tang by noon the next day.

Re:Baby Yukon Potato Salad with Shallots, Chives, Bacon & Lemon Vinaigrette

Yes, 5 stars. The lemon zest enhances the flavor of the potatoes, but is not overwhelming. Excellent flavor, easy to make. This salad will become a summer standard.

Re:Chocolate Strawberry Shortcakes

The combination of chocolate and strawberry has never appealed to me, but this recipe is an exception. By itself, the biscuit tastes bitter to me, but with the sweetened strawberries it is a delicious combination

Re:Doughnut Muffins

Fine and soft textured-similar to crumb cake. Since it uses a creamed mixture, not the standard muffin technique, it is "cake". With the cinnamon sugar coating, the flavor is that of cake doughtnuts. A truly delicous morning treat.

Re:Broiled Chicken Thighs with Coriander Rub

This is one of my most-used recipes from Fine Cooking. The flavor is caramel and smoky. Great quick dinner with rice.
