Asian-Marinated Baked Chicken

I'd recommend reducing ginger to 1 tbs or straining marinade before baking and reducing the bake time to 20 minutes. Broiling can be set depending on how it looks after the first bake time. Great taste!

Almond Cake

Sweet indeed... and even after another 10 minutes in the oven it did not rise and was heavy in the middle. Maybe this is what it's supposed to be like? Perfect with tart fruit, eg. raspberries and cream.

Pork Tenderloin with Spicy Apricot Glaze

I used Smuckers Apricot jam and added a half can of halved apriocts for the 'preserve'. I sliced two shallots and put them around the tenderloin at the start using a bit of olive oil to avoid sticking... they still had a slight crunch and were moistened nicely by the 'glaze'. Super easy... thanks

Pineapple-Glazed Shrimp Skewers

Flavour was great but for some reason simmering for syrup didn't happen. The mix reduced but remained loose and didn't glaze the skewers. Any suggestions? I'm not a cook for sure but love Chow's recipes.

Buzzing Bran Muffins

I've made these a couple of times strictly following the ecipe and they are great; moist, not woody but flavourful. Then I added pecan bits (1/2 cp) in with the raisins which added a touch more texture. I've also used mixed dried fruit (1 cp) for a change. Each time they had the original moistness. Super thanks...

Citrus–Poppy Seed Muffins

A nice balance between poppy seed and citrus - If I can follow this recipe anyone can. I used skim milk since that's all we have in the house and likely had more zest using a whole lemon's and orange's worth.

Spanish Whites with a Seafood Paella?

No doubt an Albarino will pair nicely but I haven't been able to find a good one in your price range. Two other choices second best could be Muga Rose 2007 from Rioja Spain. Nicely crisp and dry with some flavor and an Italian, Fazi Battaglia Verdicchio dei Castelli di Jesi 2005 somewhat less flavour and different but dry sometimes with a spritz. 'She' may find the first has a romantic touch... and even the scroll and bottle shape of the second. Go for it!
