Garlic Roasted Chicken and Potatoes
I was not at all impressed with this recipe but was intrigued by the combination of flavors with the addition of maple syrup. Really, people.... garlic and maple syrup? Yuck. Do yourselves a flavor and keep to the savory flavors. In addition to the garlic, add chopped rosemary, lemon zest. A bit of cumin, maybe, and some red pepper flakes. I made the recipe as is.... The chicken really did not have much flavor. Thank goodness for the potatoes, tho.... they were the main meal.

Sun-Dried Tomato and Blue Cheese Burgers
Great! I added more cheese and soaked the dried tomatoes in hot water then squeezed dry and chopped. I used extra lean ground beef and they grilled up really nice with no flare ups.

Clam with Tomato and Rice Soup
Added a bit of red pepper flakes, one tablespoon sugar. Substituted evaporated milk for the heavy cream and added 1/4 to 1/2 cup grated Gruyere cheese. Next time I will use less tomato sauce and add chopped, plum tomatoes from a can. I thought the clams were a bit lost, so may use some bottled clam juice next time or double the amount of clams called for. All-in-all, I enjoyed this and will enjoy tinkering with it a bit more. Thanks.
