Re:Roast Pork Chops with Baby Artichokes and New Potatoes

This is my first ever Fine Cooking failure. I followed the recipe with no changes other than to use vegetable stock instead of chicken stock. The potatoes just wouldn't cook. When I took the pan from the oven, the chops were ready, but the potatoes were barely starting to cook. I removed the chops, and put the pan back in the oven for another 10 minutes. By the time the potatoes were cooked the artichokes were mushy, and the dish was an unappealing beige mess. The taste was boring as well.

Re:Classic Pasta Carbonara

Great directions, fast and delicious. However, Pecorino Romano cheese is traditional for carbonara in Italy and ever so much better than Parmesan.

Re:Jumbo Cranberry Oatmeal Jumbles

A delicious, crisp or soft (depending on how long you bake them) please everyone cookie. Office mates and husband all found these great. Some of the more conservative eaters were wary of the cranberries but said that the rest of the cookie was so good they could ignore a few cranberries.Some changes I made:I don't keep white chocolate, coconut or corn syrup in the house. I used Callebaut bitter sweet chocolate chips instead of the white chocolate. Additional oatmeal replaced the coconut and agave syrup seems to have worked just fine as a replacement for the corn syrup.The only negative is the size. A 2oz scoop of cookie dough yields a very JUMBO cookie. The second time around I used only 1oz scoops of dough and got a cookie 3" in diameter which was quite satisfactory for us.
