Chicken Breasts with Balsamic Vinegar and Garlic
Absolutely delicious as written! I used fresh chicken tenders and the timing was perfect. I did add a little flour left over from dredging to thicken the sauce a bit but not much. The reduction is just elegant. And it's easy! I served it with left over scalloped potatoes and fresh green beans. One of the best recipes on this site so far. I will certainly make again probably for company.

Ham, Potato and Cabbage Soup
We did enjoy this soup, but I made a few changes. I used a basic, onion, celery, carrot base in olive oil. I used 5 small red potatoes diced smallish and a fine shred on the cabbage, because my ham was the remains of a sliced spiral ham and I wanted the soup to be less chunky, I used my own chicken stock so I added some salt, a splash of red pepper, and some butter.. Left out the caraway but did use the fresh parsley as others advised. Very hearty but delicately flavored early Spring dinner with fruit salad on the side and a crusty loaf. Made a lovely meal.

Awesome Broccoli-Cheese Casserole
The casserole is "awesome"; delicious, cheesy and rich, almost a meal in itself. I made a few changes though thanks to some suggestions from the reviewers. Used a large can of the soup just because I had one on hand and fresh broccoli, about a lb and 1/2. Split the mayo with sour cream and used more of each. Used half an onion and almost 2 cups shredded cheese, lots more paprika and several drops of hot sauce. Mixed it all together with the egg but it seemed a bit dry so I added about !/4 cup of fresh chicken broth I had just made. Lots of salt and pepper then topped with the crushed Ritz crackers with added paprika and sprayed with olive oil to help the browning. The broccoli was just right with just the right crispness. Make this casserole; your guests will devour it.
