Re:Dirty Fried Chicken

An interesting recipe but not an OMG amazing one. I couldn't for the life of me figure out how including or leaving out the couple of teaspoons of apple juice made any difference as it was overwhelmed by the 6 tablespoons of chili/soy paste. It is a very sticky sauce. I tasted it hot and cold and even though there is a lot of fussiness with the ingredients, there wasn't that much depth. And it was saltier than I would have wanted due to the soy sauce and the salt inherent in the chili paste. I used Haechandle premium brand extra hot for my paste.

Re:Lemon-Buttermilk Chiffon Cake with Double-Raspberry Sauce

The addition of "cornmeal" is a mis-step in my opinion. It adds an unpleasant grittiness with no flavor pay-off. I recommend not adding cornmeal. Caveat: I am a huge fan of Fine Cooking magazine, recommending it as the one source magazine to subscribe to. If my memory serves me, this is the first recipe I have done from them that wasn't terrific.
