Reviewed Traditional Chicken Divan

Sunday, Sep 14, 2014 on

"I grew up loving my mom';s chicken divan, and made her recipe as a young adult. Because of the canned soup and mayo in the recipe, I had not made the dish in many years. This is a winner, and chicken divan will go back in our rotation. I feel comfort."

Reviewed Tagliolini con Tartufo: Tagliolini with Truffles

Monday, Aug 11, 2014 on Cooking Channel

"I was looking for a way to showcase a small jar of minced black truffles, and made this with a half-pound of tagliatelli. The pasta allows the earthy truffles to shine, and the butter and Parmigiano-Reggiano complement it perfectly. Be sure to add some pasta water and reduce the sauce for best results."

"The anchovies and red wine set this recipe apart from many cacciatore recipes I've made over the years. We loved it, the pungency of the black olives enhanced by the anchovy, Will make again. Highly recommended. I used chicken thighs, skinned after browning, and homemade marinara sauce."

"I found it not so good. If the onions and bacon were browned first, it would have been tastier, and there is no reason to wait to add stock half way through. After 1.5 hours of cooking above the liquid, the chops were dry."
