Re:Creole-Style Shrimp Jambalaya

Made it just as written and it was delicious. I used jasmine rice. It was a nice change from my normal jambalaya that has chicken and andouille. It does have a 'mushy' result, like a potluck casserole, but I think that is a good thing! Cooking the rice separately as the previous reviewer mentioned and adding some of the remaining broth if you have any would make it more of a stew/soup if that's your preference. I will definitely make this one again.

Re:Almond-Crusted Halibut

I wasn't thrilled. My almond crust began to burn almost immediately, even on lower heat. I don't know if there's a way around it (due to fat content in the nuts) other than baking it in the oven. Even so, I don't think it would be worth the prep time.

Re:Shrimp Stew with Coconut Milk, Tomatoes & Cilantro

Quick weeknight meal. I agree with other reviewers, the sauce is too thin. Next time I would reduce it quite a bit and add more pepper flakes. I served it with jasmine coconut rice which was divine. It's worth a repeat with some adjustments.

Re:Chili-Rubbed Rib-Eye Steak with Corn & Green Chile Ragoût

Absolutely delicous summer meal. The ragout was out of this world. I used 2 jalepenos because I couldn't find chiles and it worked well. I recommend doubling the ragout!

Re:Sautéed Tilapia over Swiss Chard with Tarragon Butter

Lovely, light (if you reduce the butter), and very flavorful weeknight dish. This was my first time cooking with swiss chard--I'm trying to branch out from my typical ingredients--and it was great in this recipe. Made it with the recommended brown rice with walnuts and golden raisins which complimented it perfectly.

Re:Brown Rice with Walnuts and Golden Raisins

Really delicious and super easy side dish. I had lots of raisins left over from another FC recipe (stuffed pork chops)and discovered this gem. Serves as a great base recipe where you can make any substitutions you like for the nuts, herbs, and fruit.

Re:Pork Chops Stuffed with Pine Nuts and Herbs

Really good and easy to put together. Made as written but decreased the mint as I feel it can overpower a dish. I'm not a raisin fan but they are important--sweet and pork always work together. A nice change from my other stuffed pork recipes.

Re:Carrot Cake Cupcakes with Lemony Cream Cheese Frosting

I don't normally like 'healthier' versions of the real thing but these were delicious and easy to put together.

Re:Balsamic Glazed Brussels Sprouts with Pancetta

The BEST way to prepare brussels sprouts. I think it's important to use a good quality balsamic. Made with filet mignon and it was divine!

Re:Chicken Fajitas with Red Pepper, Onion & Lime

Fabulous recipe! Made using monterey jack but the cheese wasn't even necessary because the flavor was sooo good. Using thighs makes all the difference. Served with the recommended corn w/lime cayenne butter and would highly recommend that as well. A keeper!
