Greek Garbanzo Bean Salad
Easy & tasty recipe. I'd recommend a few things to really improve the quality. First, remove the seeds from the cucumbers. Second, use "olive bar" olives versus the canned variety. Third, increase the Feta to 3-4 oz. Fourth, if you don't want to make your own dressing, Ken's Northern Italian Lite works well and only has 45 calories per Tbl. I make this side all the time.

Chicken In Basil Cream
The sauce turned out more runny than expected which worked out fine given I used Egg Noodles that needed to be coated. I'd recommend cutting the chicken into strips prior to breading them. This will help make the chicken cook more evenly while helping with portion control. I'd also add the basil after the sauce is finished reducing. Next time, I'm going to add a bit of fresh nutmeg, replace the heavy cream with skim milk with corn starch, and add a sauteed shallot & garlic clove to the sauce for a more healthful & hopefully more tasty version. But I can't imagine anyone not enjoying this recipe.

Gourmet Mushroom Risotto
Outstanding dish. You must drizzle a little top quality Truffle Oil on after you plate the dish. Simply an amazing way to finish an already top notch recipe. Works well with a nice Cabernet Sauvignon or Red Zinfandel.
