Jansson's Temptation (Janssons Frestelse)
I, too, was happily surprised at what an effect the anchovies had--AND without being detected by my anchovy-hating other half! I made one change to keep from going to the store--I substituted a tube of anchovy paste for the anchovies. I think the quantity of the tube may have been a bit small in comparison the "fourteen" anchovies called for, so I either won't do that again, or I will use TWO tubes. In spite of my faux pas, I am still SO impressed by this dish, and will make it again! Thanks for a great recipe!

Diane's Colcannon
This was EXCELLENT. The only change I made was to add salt (about 1.5 teaspoons) to the water in which the potatoes were cooked--I find it's impossible to get potatoes salty enough if you don't add salt to the cooking water. I know I'll miss the flavor, but to economize on cholesterol, next time I may use canola oil to cook the cabbage/onion, and add bottled REAL bacon bits. This would also make the recipe a little faster to prepare. However, I don't think the FLAVOR of the original can be improved upon, and I regret it when I have to make changes like this!

Classic Texas Caviar
I'm a Texan and have tried a number of recipes for this dish--all good. However, everyone at my house on Super Bowl Sunday said: "You don't have to try any more Texas Caviar recipes. This one is a KEEPER." That's good enough for me--and, VERY unlike me--I didn't change a thing! Kudos to Pam Anderson for this great recipe.
