Original Homemade Italian Beef
We added the peppers at the start as suggested and this has quickly become a classic in our house. It's even better leftover the next day!

Deb's Scallops Florentine
I was worried that this sauce wouldn't be flavorful enough, or worse that I'd drown my (expensive) scallops in it and end up with a rubbery mess, but everyone in my home absolutely loved this recipe. It's a welcome change from typical lemon/garlic/white wine approaches to shellfish and the flavors meld together wonderfully. We made double the sauce and served this with a side of angel hair pasta and there were no leftovers the next day. I think what especially helps is making sure you get good quality scallops -- I ended up getting scallops from two different stores and there was a marked difference. Look for scallops that are large and firm and they'll hold up to the sauce and cooking much better and will add wonderful flavor as well. This recipe really doesn't need any fiddling with as far as I'm concerned, but maybe next time I'll try the seasoned bread crumbs as some people did, and perhaps a touch of garlic or some other seasoning.

We made this on a whim one night after a recent blizzard in the northeast. I was hesitant to dedicating a bottle of wine to the effort since the last spiced wine we tried was so overspiced that it seemed like cough syrup. But this was a great balance of sweet and citrus and spicy, all without overpowering the wine. I didn't have an orange on hand so I used juice instead of the water and it came out great, I've already gotten requests to make it again and can't wait to try adjusting levels of cinnamon, clove and sugar for mild variations on the theme. A definite winner!
