Re:Peppercorn-Parmesan Cream Sauce

Awesome! And incredibly easy to make. I've used only cream in place of milk before and it's great too.just a hint: don't do more than a 1/4 cup of cheese or the sauce will be too strong, I made the mistake of eyeballing it the first time and overdid it. And on that note, taste it before adding the salt!

Re:Fastest Fudge Cake

Delicious and really easy to make! I thought it was a touch too sweet so next time I'll use full 70% chocolate ganache instead of half 70% half bittersweet chocolate.I mixed the cocoa powder with the boiling water instead of whisking it in with the flour to bring out the cocoa flavor a bit better.Considering that this is a cake and not a brownie, don't expect this cake to be ultra dense. The cake came out really moist though, and I imagine that if I put it in the fridge (it disappeared, no leftovers!) it would come out "fudge".Love this cake, I'll definitely be making it again.

Re:Persian Chicken with Pomegranate and Walnuts

I liked this dish, without tweaking the recipe, I ended up adding another teaspoon of salt.It's very easy to make, I toasted the walnuts in a pan while i cooked the onions and then chopped them in the Cuisinart.My mother absolutely loved it. The flavor is a little sweet and earthy, and it makes a nice sauce that it really yummy with buttered rice.However, personally I thought that it lacked a little depth/richness in flavor. Next time I will add a tablespoon of fish sauce or a bit of tomato paste.

Re:Strawberry Vinaigrette

This was gross; it tasted like oily strawberries. It was fine after I added more vinegar (I do not remember exactly how much but it was around 1/3 cup), though. I had it on a spinach salad with blood oranges, strawberries, and toasted walnuts.

Re:Upside-Down Quince and Honey Spice Cake

I made this for Rosh Hashanah in place of my traditional apple honey cake. This cake is delicious! As for the poached quinces themselves, the syrup they make is amazing, I mixed some of the leftover into mashed sweet potatoes with extra butter and it made for a stunning side dish. I'm definitely going to make this cake again next year.
