My cooking tragedies
I once wrote a hurried copy of and old fudge recipe, and when I went to make it, I had written "2 c." of corn syrup instead of "2 t.". It got so thick that I broke a wooden spoon trying to stir it, and ended up having to throw out the pan with the fudge.

Super Filling Cannellini Bean and Escarole Dish
This recipe caught my eye because of the ease of preparation and the use of whole, healthful ingredients. I was shopping for the ingredients when I noticed that fully cooked, flavored chicken sausages are packaged in the 12 oz. portion called for in the recipe. I'm glad I made the substitution, as I believe the final product would have been slightly bland with just chicken, even after seasoning with salt and pepper

Maria's Broccoli Rabe
Very good. I did cut down the oil somewhat as a personal preference. One benefit to this cooking method, I was able to simmer the vegetable in an early stage of preparing a meal, shock it in cold water to stop the cooking, then hold it while I prepared other items, and sautee it just before service. Having read other reviews, I do have a few tips. Broccoli Rabe aka rapini is located with other cooking greens at my grocer, not with the broccoli and cauliflower. Look for perky leaves and few florets. Florets should not be yellowing. Also, bitterness compliments richness... I served this side dish along homemade fettucine alfredo.

Lighter Fettuccini Alfredo
Quick and easy, yes. Alfredo, no. The sauce (and there's a lot of it) is overwhelmed by the cream-cheese-flavor of the Neufchatel. After a few bites, I felt like I was just eating a bar of cream cheese. Soon after, I returned to the kitchen and washed all the sauce off and down the drain so as not to waste a whole box of pasta. In the future, when looking to cut fat and calories, I will search out a different recipe... perhaps one that uses evaporated skim milk in place of heavy cream.
