Re:Thai-Style Stir-Fried Chicken and Basil

I've only had Thai food twice in my life so I'm not an expert in what it is supposed to taste like. But because I'm a big fan of basil, I thought I'd give this recipe a try. It was quick and easy and had a really nice blend of flavors. And the crushed peppers gives it a little kick! I'll definitely be making this recipe often. Since I also love cilantro and mint next time I make it I might try using that as suggested.

Re:Roasted Broccoli with Lemon & Pecorino

I love this recipe. Not only is it quick and easy, the combination of the Parmesan cheese and lemon juice really enhance the rich flavor of the roasted broccoli. I make this at least once a week and serve it often for company.

Re:Southwestern Grilled Pork, Chicken or Turkey with Green Grape Salsa

Not only wonderful flavors but quick and easy as well! I've made it quite a few times and have even served it for company. It got rave reviews - several people even asked for the recipe. I've substituted red grapes when I didn't have green ones which seemed to work just as well.

Re:Seared Scallops with Pea Purée, Crisp Pancetta & Gremolata

This was excellent! Easy to make. Nice blend of very different flavors - the sweetness of the peas and scallops, the tartness of the lemon zest and the smokiness of the pancetta. I had to bake the pancetta a little longer than the recipe called for, perhaps it was a little to thick. I couldn't find any fresh peas so I used frozen which seemed to work just fine. I was initially concerned because the recipe indicated that the puree might be too thick and suggested adding water or broth. Mine initially seemed fairly soupy, maybe because of the frozen peas (which were thawed and well drained). But as the puree cooled, it became thicker. Definitely will make this again. It would make a wonderful gourmet meal to serve to company.

Re:Crispy Cheddar & Jalapeño Coated Chicken Breasts

This was great! Lots of flavor and nice crunchy crust to the chicken without all the fat and calories that you get when frying. I made several substitutions to use what I had on hand - nonfat yogurt instead of whole milk yogurt and canned chopped mild chili peppers instead of the jalapenos. Both seemed to work out fine. Since we like our food somewhat spicy, I think next time I would use jarred jalapenos or maybe add in some minced fresh jalapeno pepper to the crust mixture.

Re:Tomato Soup with Fennel, Leek & Potato

After making the Classic Tomato Soup (which was excellent btw), I was a little disappointed in this recipe. It was good but it just didn't seem to have the rich tomato flavor of the Classic recipe. And although I like fennel and leeks, I just didn't care for the flavor combination in this soup. I don't think I would make this again.

Re:Classic Tomato Soup Recipe

I love tomato soup but have never made it myself before mainly because I didn't want to spend a lot of time preparing fresh tomatoes. What a surprise to find a recipe that is so easy and quick and delicious even though it was made with canned tomatoes. Definitely much better than any canned soup I've ever had. I garnished it with the sour cream, goat cheese and parmesan mixture which further enhanced the flavor. I didn't have any chives so I used scallions instead which seemed to work fine.

Re:Peanut-Crusted Tilapia with Frizzled Ginger and Scallions

This recipe is awesome! The peanut crust (I used cashews) provides a tasty crispy crust on the fish. Be careful when cooking as the crust browns quickly and you could easily burn it. Don't skip the scallions and ginger as they enhance the flavor of the dish. I served it with roasted asparagus with the garlic coriander oil (another Fine Cooking recipe). My husband said it was the best meal he's ever had!

Re:Spicy Maple Walnuts

These walnuts are delicious! The maple syrup, the ginger and the tabasco sauce give the nuts a sweet yet spicy flavor. I added the amount of tabasco called for in the recipe but I think next time I would add a little bit more just to kick them up a notch.

Re:Pistachio-Crusted Cod Fillets
