Tracy's Horseradish Carrots
This recipe sounded really good, and the directions worked fine, but for me, the horseradish did not enhance the carrots (neither did it taste totally bad, hence the 3-star rating). I also did not like the combination of the crunchy panko with the smoother carrots. Everyone should try this recipe, though--some probably will like it. Not bad, just didn't seem to really go together.

Authentic Pho
This is definitely, as the name implies, authentic tasting! I followed the recipe exactly, and it worked out well, with the exception that I would add less salt initially and let everyone taste and add as they desire, since most fish sauce and other add-ins are also salty. One caveat--the broth ends up with quite a bit of fat in it from the marrow in the bones. (This, even though I used grass-fed beef, which is generally leaner). In fact, when you eat the broth, a thin coating of fat stays on your lips. Great, if you are a poor peasant in Vietnam. Not so great for me, I thought. Simple solution-- make the recipe a day ahead, and chill the broth after straining. Then skim the hardened fat off the broth before reheating and proceeding with the recipe. This recipe is a great one for older children to make, if nothing else, as a reminder of how many people in this world cannot afford to waste any part of an animal, including the bones. Also a lesson in respect for any animal that died to feed you i.e. don't waste it! Also a good introduction to ethnic cuisine, and they can leave out the veges if they choose.

Baked Parmesan-Crusted Chicken
Great easy and quick recipe! Followed the recipe exactly the first time, and the crust was perfect, but the chicken a smidge dry. The second time I made it, I baked it as I had learned to bake chicken breasts, ie high temp/short time, and the chicken was much juicier (450 degrees, for 15 minutes). I also omitted the butter dip the second time, and used an egg dip instead, trying to cut down on fat. Without the butter, the chicken was lacking some flavor, and the coating didn't stick together and crisp as well, though for a healthier dish, still really good.
