Re:Fresh Egg Pasta

Re:Flaky Buttermilk Biscuits

This is the most perfect biscuit recipe ever. I use a food processor to combine the dry ingredients. I freeze the butter, grate it into the dry ingredients, then pulse. I freeze the buttermilk until it is very very cold and then pulse it into the mix. I cut the biscuits using a 2 x 3 row grid using a sharp knife with a downward (not slicing) motion. Thanks FC - this is the best!

Re:Quinoa Salad with Apples, Walnuts, Dried Cranberries, and Gouda

This is my second time making this recipe. This time I sliced everything about the same size and quite small. I had to use raisins instead of cranberries but it was a good substitution. I used an entire 5oz bag of Organic Herb Blend (that included arugula) and chopped it smaller too. For those who had never had quinoa before, they were amazed. I watched people pointing to my salad and telling their friends "you have to try this, it's wonderful!" There was none left. Thank you Fine Cooking - another great recipe.

Re:Southeast Asian Chicken Wings

Very Nice! The marinade is perfect ... just the right amount of heat and spice. Stretching out the wings on the skewer really does help in cooking them more evenly. I'll be removing the wing tips and watching the BBQ more closely next time - very easy to burn.

Re:Grilled Sliders

So simple but perfect. The bun preparation and the butter/shallot spread is the key to the flavour combination. No need to get carried away with extra condiments - maybe some shredded lettuce or some cheese - but they are just as good plain. This is now a regular rotation recipe in our house. Thanks Fine Cooking.

Re:Sweet & Sour Sicilian Braised Chicken (Pollo Agrodolce)

This is a wonderful combination of flavours. It is also good with pork tenderloin medallions in place of chicken. I have added a quarter bulb of fennel, finely minced, to the onion, carrot, and celery mixture. I have changed the pine nuts to toasted cashews or almonds - it's all good. A tablespoon of fresh lemon juice at the end brightens the dish. Thank you for a great recipe.

Re:Brown Rice with Walnuts and Golden Raisins

From the moment we tried this recipe we have been sharing it. It is perfect! Every element adds to final product. The walnuts enhance the nuttiness of the brown rice and toasting is important. The onions add a savoury edge and the raisins add a sweetness. This is our new favourite.

Re:Corn Sauté with Ginger, Garlic & Fresh Cilantro

Very tasty! I made this with finely minced red onion instead of scallions because that was what I had. I sauteed them for about five minutes and then continued with the recipe. I used half a jalapeno finely minced as our family doesn't like too much heat. Even my picky husband liked the result. This will be going into regular rotation. Thank you!

Re:Corn & Mushroom Sauté with Leeks & Pancetta

Absolutely delicious! Everything goes together so very well. I used apple smoked bacon because I didn't have any pancetta and even picky husband enjoyed this dish. Wonderful combination - thanks!
