Re:Portabello Mushrooms with Creamy Spinach-Artichoke Filling

Another great Pam Anderson recipe. Very easy to prepare (if you have all the ingredients)and quite tasty. I did add grated cheese to the spinich/artichoke mixture and pepper to the crumb mixture. In addition, this filled 6 portabello caps.

Re:Fresh Tortellini with Asparagus, Peas, and Mint

WOW! Fabulous! This reminded me of the bow-tie primavera recipe as you cook the veggies with the pasta. I used less olive oil (1/4 cup), and zapped it with the garlic in the microwave for 15 seconds to help it infuse. I also added about 3 TBS of crumbled bacon. I think it would also work well with chopped sundried tomatoes. Omitted the mint since I didn't have any in the garden. Had no need for the pasta water. What an amazing, quick dish...my husband couldn't stop eating it. A keeper!

Re:Quick Chicken Chili

I was shocked at how good this was with so few ingredients. I substituted a small can of diced tomatoes with green chilis for the diced green chilis, and reduced the amount of stock a bit to compensate for the liquid from the tomatoes. I also added some of the cooking liquid to the beans before pureeing so I didn't have a really thick mess. For such a quick and easy recipe, this was quite tasty. It would be great with the typical chili accompaniments.

Re:Individual Beef Wellingtons with Mushroom, Spinach & Blue Cheese Filling

This recipe is a showstopper and one of the best ever in Fine Cooking. Be prepared--it does take a lot of time to make all the components. I'd suggest making them in stages. And it does take some practice to assemble the packets. But it is fabulous--right down to the cooking time for the assembled wellies. They came out exactly medium rare. Rich, delicious and perfect for a dinner party--just pop them in the oven for hassle free entertaining. Also, keep in mind they continue to cook once they come out of the oven, so don't overcook.

Re:Chocolate Banana Swirl Cake

While not a fancy cake, this makes up for it a million times over. It is an absolutely delicious cake that I have made a number of times to rave reviews. In fact, a few dinner guests couldn't stop eating it and actually said it was the best cake they had ever had. Be sure to use very ripe bananas and high quality chocolate. I've also used half milk choco and half semisweet when I've run out of all semisweet and it has been equally fabulous. Also--this cake freezes very well.
