Chewy Granola Bars
Excellent. Chewy and moist, just as promised. I had to add 1/4c corn syrup to mine because the dry ingredients just wouldn't stick with only the butter and honey and a little splash of canola oil for the same reason. Other than that, I used the recipe exactly as is.

Spinach, Egg, and Pancetta with Linguine
I'm sorry but this recipe was bland and greasy. Did nothing for us.

Mid-Eastern Chicken Thighs
Since this recipe was so well reviewed, I made it verbatim to start. It was good but a little bland, so I doctored it some in the last few minutes of cooking. I found it benefited from 1) adding a hefty dose of salt 2) adding 2-3 tbsp white sugar and 3) using 1 tbsp of cornstarch mixed with some hot broth in the last few minutes to thicken it. With these changes, it was fabulous. Also, I followed the suggestion of the chef and used double the seasoning (2 tbsp garam masala and 1 tsp curry powder). All in all, very few changes were made to make our family happy. A darn fine, cheap and easy recipe.
