Chorizo and Broccoli Rabe Pasta
I changed this a lot because I wanted to make it for a side dish but I'm giving it a five as it is because the recipe is so versatile and a great way to use broccoli rabe. You could easily substitute broccoli, broccolini, chopped spinach or kale, or another vegetable for an equally good dish. I left out the chorizo and onion and substituted ziti for rotini, steamed the broccoli rabe, and mixed it all together with a squeeze of lemon, a little lemon zest and a couple of extra tablespoons of olive oil. It was an excellent side dish. It stretched the broccoli rabe and the pasta cut the bitterness of the rabe a little. It's an excellent combo.

Plum Blueberry Upside Down Cake
I doubled the brown sugar and used all pitted, halved, Italian Prune Plums and put them skin side down against the bottom of the pan. I also followed the suggestion of adding 1/4 teas. of cinnamon. Cardamom would also have been good. I used an 8" springform pan which made the cooking time a little longer. The cake took at least an hour to bake. To get the bottom of the pan off the cake I slid a piece of dental floss between the pan bottom and the cake after it was inverted onto a plate. This is a delicious cake and would work great, I think, with cherries and almond flavoring or any other fruit which appeals to you.

Broccoli Chicken
Had very little flavor. I didn't like it enough to tweak it.
