Lemon Cream Pasta with Chicken
This is a wonderful dish, and fairly easy to make. So, give it a try if you're a novice in the kitchen. You just may surprise yourself! It's delish! I followed the recipe as written; did not make any changes. My husband raved about it! Next time, I will add the asparagus as shown on the photo. And I'll remember to make some garlic bread too. Oops! But this is definitely a five-star recipe, and I'll be making this many more times! It's good enough and easy enough for a weeknight meal, and it's so good, you'd be proud to serve it if you're having folks over for dinner. Yum! DON'T CHANGE A THING! IT'S PERFECT THE WAY IT'S WRITTEN! It bugs me, too, as Rachel Dobbs states in her review, as to why folks don't try the recipe as written first, then, if you want, make changes and let us know. But only AFTER you've tried the original recipe first!

Spicy Garlic Lime Chicken
I have tried this recipe many, many times, and each time it was a hit. However, when I decided to try it with one-inch thick pork chops, I think it was the best ever! My husband raved that this was the best pork chop he'd ever eaten. Now when I say I'm gonna make it, he always says "You're using pork chops, right?" Either way, you can't lose. This is a winner all around.

Spicy Almond Chicken
This recipe is absolutely delicious! I even tried it with boneless, 1"-thick pork chops, and oh, boy! It was a toss-up over which was better. Tonight I'm hosting a dinner party, and I'm serving the pork-chop version. I have a question, though. So that I can spend time with my guests and not have to be over the stove the entire time, I was wondering if I could prepare the chops (brown them) first, prepare the sauce with the almonds, pour that over the chops, cover, and wait until my guests arrive before popping them in the oven. Do you think this will work? Will it dry the pork chops out? I don't want that. I think it will work, so I'm going to try it anyway. Hopefully, I'll hear from one of you with an opinion. If I don't brown the chops too much, I think they'll be juicy and delicious like the first time. They melted in our mouths. Any input is appreciated. Thanks.
