Braciola I

Reviewed: Jan. 14, 2008
Not bad, but a few modifications would improve this recipe. 1. Cheese: Mozzarella gets too runny and gooey when melted (think pizza), and is a little bland. A combination of parmesan and romano gives a nice melting, and also adds much better flavor. You can even add some swiss or some provolone for better flavor. 2. Herbs. The filling should have some fresh herbs. A few tablespoons of fresh parsley or basil (or your preference) gives a fuller flavor. 3. Sauce. I shy away from jarred sauces because they always taste of tomato paste. A home-made simply marinara is much better. 4. Bread crumbs. Some like it, some not. A handful of bread crumbs makes a nice texture. And you can use an egg to help bind it. Man, do I love braciole!

Carol's Arroz Con Pollo

Reviewed: Mar. 3, 2003
This dish is not terrible, but should not really be called arroz con pollo. It is more like a blander Americanized version of chicken and rice. Where is the chorizo? Where is the oregano? Where is the cumin? Where is the lime juice? Where are the peas? Where are the olives or capers? I realize arroz con pollo is not a recipe that is set in stone, and that it has many variations, but if you want a more traditional dish, you need to go beyond this recipe.
