Herb-Roasted Cornish Hens
Couldn't have been more pleased. I used these for a medieval feast. I marinated each chicken in the olive oil and herbs overnight and they turned out awesome. I substituted Herbes De Provence (savory, rosemary, marjoram, thyme, basil and lavendar flowers) for a slightly different twist on flavor and simply basted with chicken broth rather than the wine sauce since some of my guests had dietary resrtrictions concerning the use of wine. I will definitely make these again.

Medieval Custard Pie (Daryoles)
I had a horrible time trying to make these. I did 2 trial runs using a scaled down recipe to use just 1 egg. I could not get my custard right. The first time I cooked at too high a temp and curdled the custard so it turned out gritty. So I did a bunch of research on understanding the chemistry of how an egg custard works. Second time I cooked at a nice low temp, but I think I cooked too long and my end result was like rubber. I wanted these as the dessert for a medieval feast I was hosting. I finally ended up using the almond milk and flavors from this recipe but making a simple boiled corn-starch pudding in a graham cracker crust. I felt my end result had a fairly authentic taste and definitely a more pleasing texture - even my 8 yr old liked it. I am not usually a "challenged" cook, but I found this recipe to make a boiled egg custard beyond my skill. Thanks for providing a recipe that had the right flavors for my dinner party.

Creamy Baked Pears
Delicious. Mine didn't turn out looking like they had caramel sauce on them like the photo, but they tasted great. I doubled the recipe for the number of people I was serving and added 1 tsp cinnamon and 1/2 tsp nutmeg for a lightly spiced flavor.
