Re:Quince Paste

This is an excellent recipe. I have made it two years in a row now. The only thing that was different this year for me were the California quince (last year I used an imported variety). California quince was softer, and thus contained more moisture. I had to increase the time for drying in the oven compared to the time given in the recipe. It makes for a wonderful gift. Goes great with salty and strong cheeses. Thank you! The recipe is one of my favorite.

Re:Grilled Rosemary Chicken Thighs with Sweet & Sour Orange Dipping Sauce

Really easy to throw together in minutes. Delicious! The only thing I changed was using just 1/8 cup of rice vinegar for the dipping sauce. My family doesn't care for vinegar that much but after reducing it by 50%, the sauce was perfect. Oh, and one more detail, I also ground the spices in my Bamix food grinder. Thank you, Fine Cooking, for an easy and enjoyable chicken recipe!

Re:Boston Cream Pie

Very good recipe. Everything worked just as described. A couple things are worth mentioning. When you add whipped egg whites and cake flour to the egg yolk mix, make sure your bowl is big enough. The mixture is very fluffy and light, and literally grows before your eyes when you add egg whites and cake flour. I had a fairly large bowl (12 cups) but had to scramble looking for larger one because I didn't have any room left in it to add the final 1/4 of the egg white and cake flour.Also after I poured the batter into the springform, I used an offset spatula to even out the top. As a result, it did not dome during the baking, and I didn't have to cut off the domed part. I liked it this way. It was a perfect even disk easy to slice in half.I didn't use the nuts for the decoration because I don't think they belong in this recipe. Instead, I let the chocolate ganache run down the sides of the cake which made it look really pretty albeit not quite like a true cake which is exactly the way we like it in my family. Thank you for sharing this recipe with us! It's excellent.
