About this Cook
Being a good cook is all about trying, failing, and succeeding. As you persist you develop your skills to the point that cooking becomes a "feel" of what is right. Recipes become a blueprint that you customize.

Hot and Spicy Pecans
I concur with other cooks who advise to lower temp. Consider a test run with small batch first. If you have unsatisfactory results at 300 degrees, reduce temp to 275 on successive batch, and watch carefully between the 20 minute -30 minute cooking time so as not to over bake. It may seem as though nuts are not finished because coating seems moist, but as nuts cool, the coating congeals and coats well. Stir nuts frequently as they cool out of oven so they do not adhear to baking sheet. You can make this recipe work with practice. Try honey or brown sugar if you want sweet and spicy!

Chicken Scallopini
This dish is a standard in our household. We love it with steamed broccoli, and perhaps garlic mashed potatoes. Another reviewer is confused over the term "scallopini", which refers to the thin slices of meat used in the picatta recipe. Once you have dredged the scallopini in seasoned flour, dip it in an egg/Parmesan cheese wash before turning it into your hot skillet. Just brown the scallopini, don't fully cook, as you can return it for one last cook/ warm up at the end (careful not to overcook the chicken!). If you do not have fresh chicken stock for Demi-glacing the pan, use any liquid canned chicken broth. Reduce the broth with the lemon juice, butter, olive oil, garlic, and white wine to concentrate the flavors. Add some fresh thyme and fresh chopped parsley to taste now (no stems). When ready, return your scallopinis to the skillet for a final warm-up and add capers to taste. I like lots. Try this recipe with veal or sliced beef tenderloin also

Lemon Mushroom Herb Chicken
A terrific recipe as is. This recipe also works well with fish (snapper or halibut), pork chops, and veal. Serve with a buttered pasta or rice and a nice California Chardonnay.
