Re:Classic Eggplant Parmigiana

As someone who has neither Italian heritage nor direct experience with Italian cooking, I found this recipe to be delicious (AND I made a mistake--read on!). A few of these reviews seem on the snarky side to me-- don't be fooled: the flavors and textures work so well together. I made the big and juicy mistake of forgetting to drain the cans of tomatoes, which has resulted in a bit of an extra-brothy tomato sauce, but no real harm seems to have been done. I did dredge the salted and rinsed eggplant slices in flour before frying (but only a very thin layer) and those seemed to hold up better than the non-dredged slices.

Re:Burnished Chicken Thighs with Roasted Sweet Potatoes & Parsnips

This has become a weekly favorite. I usually buy the family size package of chicken thighs, even though there are only two of us, because it's also delicious cold, for lunches. We also sometimes shred up the leftovers on salad for dinner the next night.Instead of putting the chicken thighs in a bowl with the marinade, I seal them in a large ziploc bag. This eliminates the need to turn them over during the day, and also allows me to squeeze out all the extra air for an extra-good soak.We're not huge fans of parsnips, so I do brussels sprouts and sweet potatoes. Sometimes I've done brussels sprouts and cauliflower, which is also great. I've use red wine vinegar in the marinade frequently, as balsamic isn't my favorite, and it works well.
