Ukrainian Red Borscht Soup
Had borscht once and I loved it... but then had it at a polish restaurant and hated it! It made me realize there are MANY ways to make borscht and it's very possible your going to like one and not the other. I loved this one because it had pork in it and the earthy beet flavor was not overpowering. The polish borscht i had was very overpowering with beet flavor and i realized that's what i dont' like-- and also why many people probably don't like Borscht. This one, however, was great! I used 2 large hot Italian sausage links out of the casing. Next time I will put 1 more link in there. Not too greasy with the pork... After i dumped the pork in the water, some oil accumulated at the top and i just skimmed it out. For the cabbage, i got pre-shredded coleslaw mix. Other than that, followed the recipe exactly swapping out dill for parsley. It was great! I did try one of the other recommendations of adding a bit of balsamic vinegar at the end - and that was a nice touch. I may also try to add a chicken bullion cube to the water just to see what happens. Otherwise great recipe and I recommend it!

Easy Garlic Escargots
Delicious. I didn't have any mushrooms, so I made the recipe without. Next time I will buy the mushrooms to stuff the escargot in. I upped the garlic to 3-4 cloves instead of just 1. I also decreased the butter. Next time I think i will add some olive oil during baking. I love to dunk the bread in the sauce.. but it was quite thick. So if I can just get a little more runny consistancy (maybe decrease the flour & add a little evoo) it will be perfect for bread dipping at the end. Yummo.

Italian Potato Salad
Great recipe. I didn't measure-- just eyeballed the ingridients but I can tell you right off the bat that there was too much vinegar in the original recipe. I decreased that and also added 2 extra cloves of garlic. Also used red potatoes and kept skin on. Delicious. Great alternative for mayo.
