Fresh Fig Cake
It's excellent. First time, followed it exactly. Came out perfect. Second time, didn't have fresh figs so used canned figs. It was good but hands down fresh figs is the better choice.

Fish Chowder
Made it twice. First time followed it to a T. Second time I added a can of baby clams. No way to mess up this delicious dish. It's just outstanding.
