Kale and Mushroom Stroganoff

I love kale and mushrooms but this dish was notsogood. It had too many steps. I don't think I will make it again. It was somewhat flavorless. It would be better with more mushrooms. I would have flashed the kale in the pasta water and added it to the pan to dry it out, then add the mushrooms that had previously sauteed.
It just lacked something. Maybe some sherry or marsala instead of white wine.

Where's the best Thai food in Marin?

There is a great eclectic Thai place in Corte Madera, Sea Thai Bistro. Some interesting food happening. My husband prefers Royal Thai, but I think it is a bit boring.

Beef Wellington

Am going to try this next weekend for a dinner party in June. Doesn't really go w/ a June dinner, but we will lighten the load w/ a good salad and veggies. Was thinking of omitting the pate as well and perhaps making homemade ricotta to use as the pate. Thank you for all comments. Any additional comments are most certainly welcome on how to lighten this up for a summer dish.

Need Super Easy Baked Chicken Recipe

I agree with Chicken Marbella as a good choice. I also like chicken under a brick in Mark Bittmans How to Cook Everything. It is a variation of Zuni Chicken.
