Re:Fennel Slaw with Grapefruit, Cracked Pepper, and Pistachios

Excelent. Use gooooood pistachios! Try to swap grapefruit for pomegranate seeds for a change.

Re:Mashed Potatoes with Caramelized Shallots

Not bad but nothing special. Shallots definitively taste better than regular onions! I would triple the amount of shallots.

Re:Slow Sautéed Carrots with Turnips, Kale, and Parsley-Mint Sauce

Beautiful colours!!!Easy to make. BEWARE: 4 1/2 TBSP oil is waaaayyy to much. Use 2 in the pot and 1 for the sauce. Also too much salt. Even better the next day.

Re:Fresh Oranges with Caramel & Ginger

This is definitively a WOO-WAAH when receiving guests! A culinary highlight of contrast of savors and textures comparable to a Rembrandt's Clair-obscure in the visual field. While your teeth are working their way through hard and tough, crunchy and nutty caramel, your tongue is being overwhelmed by the freshness and juiciness of the cool oranges. The marriage between both provokes a mouthwatering sensation of ... "more, I want more of this!"

Re:Browned Brussels Sprouts with Hazelnuts & Lemon

Very good and easy. A nice variation for an old-timer. The lemon gives it a 'zang' that makes you 'zing'... :-)

Re:Pear-Ginger Muffins

BEWARE - THIS BATCH IS FOR 2 X 12 MUFFINS!!!Silky smooth, moist and creamy inside; a tad crunchy outside ...this is THE Muffin Paradise!A few adjustments though:1) 1 cup sugar is more than enough (the crystallized ginger is already sweet);2) double the amount of dry ginger to at least 1 tsp;3)HOME MADE CREME FRAICHE IS THE SECRET.

Re:Cannellini Bean and Kale Soup

Very good nostalgic meal soup. The vinegar didn't do it for me. In order to mask its taste I added a drizzle of roasted sesame oil in each bowl. Voil, c'est parfait!

Re:French Bread Rolls

WAW! I have little experience in bread making, but this recipe really worked out perfectly!Crunchy crust, smooth and full bodied. I didn't have dried milk, so I omitted it. Still good! Really worth trying. Good for Shabbes.

Re:Twice-Baked Potatoes with Sour Cream

Good but a bit too dry; not creamy enough. A dash of milk would have helped.

Re:Sour Cream and Leek Mashed Potatoes

Easy to make and excellent: soft, creamy, elegant. In French I would say: "voluptueux"
