Blue Cheese Crusted Filet Mignon with Port Wine Sauce
Incredible filet recipe - easy and very elegant. In my opinion, THE best steak recipe ever, but my "grilled-steak without sauce" purist husband was not quite as enthuastic. I'm a pretty experienced cook but this was my first exposure to pankow bread crumbs (which, it turns out, are Japanese) and I had to find a specialty deli shop that carried them. FYI,they are quite different from regular bread crumbs - more like flakes. I did not like the port wine sauce as written, and there wasn't much of it. I played with doubling the beef broth and port wine which worked well, but I'm not sure that the sauce actually improves the fabulous steak anyway.

Ginger Carrot Soup by Jean Carper
This was a great soup - up to the point that I added the last two ingredients at which point it stopped being ginger carrot soup and became cream of orange juice soup. Not that I have a problem with oj - except maybe as a soup. It's still a good recipe as written but I really couldn't taste the carrot. Next time I'll skip the juice -maybe play with doubling the chicken broth and then decide if I want to add the fat-free half&half after pureeing.

Turtles(R) Pie
Difficult to rate this because I thought it was just average and not a particularly impressive presentation - in my opinion you might as well just soften a few Snickers bars in the micowave. However, my husband thought it was DIVINE and most other guests seemed to enjoy it. I followed the advice of others to reduce the sweet ingredients by 1/4th, used an oreo cookie pie shell and garnished it with whipped cream. It is very easy to prepare and a good desert for a casual dinner or party.
