Re:Spaghetti with Shrimp, Lemon, and Chard

Could be great if you use half the pasta. We followed the recipe exactly, even weighing the spaghetti, and ended up with a dish that was all pasta without nearly enough sauce. Did not look like the picture at all. Nice lemony flavor though.

Re:Turkey Tortilla Soup

I like my soups to have a lot in them - this one just seemed “thin” to me.

Re:Braised Country-Style Pork Ribs with Mustard-Beer Sauce

I expect more from a recipe that uses four pans and takes hours to make. It was good but not great.In hindsight, one mistake was trying to double the sauce. It took forever to cook down and I was forced to use it before it had thickened.On the plus side, I served it with Roasted Rosemary Butternut Squash & Shallots. That recipe was a find. No comments on the ribs but everyone loved the squash!

Re:Roasted Rosemary Butternut Squash & Shallots

Delicious and easy. I added diced pancetta and cut back on the oil. Used others' tip to sub maple syrup for the sugar. Even my boys liked it.My oven runs a little hot but I was surprised when this took half the time indicated, so keep an eye on it!

Re:Boneless Leg of Lamb with Mint, Pine Nut & Currant Stuffing

Very nice. I omitted the mint and inserted garlic cloves in the roast since I simply cannot cook lamb without garlic. We put it on the spit on the barbecue so it took a little less time. Turned out delicious.

Re:Chocolate-Pomegranate Torte

Turned out dry and not like the picture.

Re:Bite-Size Latkes

Delicious and crowd-pleasing. We've used this recipe several times now with much success. __We use a salad spinner to get the liquid out of the potatoes instead of the towel-wringing process described here. Much easier and just as effective. __Also have learned that the latkes are best served hot and, while still yummy, are not quite as nice re-warmed.

Re:Chiles Rellenos

Absolutely delicious. A lot of work, though, so only 4 stars.The filling is fantastic and I will be making it on its own in future because it's the easiest and best part of the recipe.__One note of caution: Be sure to get all the seeds out of the peppers before filling or you will end up with a dish that is much hotter/spicier than intended.

Re:Tuscan Peasant Soup with Rosemary & Pancetta

Yummy soup with a nice complex flavor; makes for great comfort food on a rainy day. I would give it 5 stars but it's a bit of work and makes a lot of dirty dishes along the way. Even so, I will make it again.
