Sauteed Portobellos and Spinach
Great recipe! I cooked it as written with these exceptions: used half butter half olive oil in pan; doubled garlic; cooked mushroom until half done before adding spinach; saved Parmesan cheese as a topping at the table. Very tasty!

Juicy Roasted Chicken
I modified, as I found this recipe after the trip to the store; had no celery, but I bought Stove Top stuffing (Herbs flavor), so that was cooked in microwave, then went into the cavity. Instead of using margarine, I dried the outside of the bird, then rubbed olive oil all over the bird. We used a mix of 5 seasonings (1 T each) in a bowl: Huey's burger seasoning (from a Memphis restaurant), Tony Chachere's seasoning, celery salt, onion powder, and Mrs. Dash salt-free garlic seasoning. I'm sure you can mix whatever sounds good to you, but these turned out fabulous. And we had a big chicken, 6 lbs, so I followed the general rule for poultry roasting: 20 mins/lb, plus 15 mins, or 2 hrs 15 mins. One reviewer gave a poor rating because her 4.5 lb chicken didn't cook through, although this recipe clearly states this is for a 3 lb bird! I had to find the rule elsewhere, but it worked: our bird had a temp of 180F in the deep thigh after resting 5 minutes (birds will cook a little bit after you remove them from the oven, so a delayed temp is more accurate). Probably could've gotten out 10-15 minutes earlier, as long as the temp is at or above 165F. Made gravy with pan drippings, 3/4 cup of chardonnay wine, and flour/cold water mixture (about 1.5 T AP flour). Excellent!

Vegan Pancakes
Delicious pancakes! I made as directed except added 2 tsp vanilla extract. The batter was very thin, and I felt I needed to add 3 T. flour. And then I still got 1/4 inch pancakes, at best! But the flavor was great, not like buttermilk pancakes, but reminded me of crepes. My wife liked them better than the Bisquick pancakes I usually make. I cooked them in a non-stick skillet, and sprayed a little Pam at first, but then I realized I didn't even need that. They cook quickly on med-high heat, 2-3 minutes each side, but they come out very light colored. The texture may have been very slightly gummy, but this may have been because I over-stirred the batter and only let it sit a few minutes before cooking. I'm not a vegan, but wanted to try lower-calorie pancakes, and I will be making these again.
