Very good! 8/23/2009
Baked Scallops

Baked Scallops

I omitted the sherry, and used a bit more butter than stated in the ingredient list. I also mixed in minced garlic, parsley, and basil into the butter before assembling the casserole. This dish is simply fabulous. 7/27/2009
Deviled Guacamole Eggs (by Marco Anthony Stanco)

Deviled Guacamole Eggs (by Marco Anthony Stanco)

I used one avocado for a dozen eggs, because I was worried about the appearance of green eggs. Still, the avocado imparted a creamy texture and taste to the eggs! — mstanco 7/4/2009
Hot Crab Dip

Hot Crab Dip

I doubled the crab, which made it richer. I also love using celery sticks. The dip is creamy, rich, and yummy! — mpchristian 7/2/2009
Roast Honey Duck #1

Roast Honey Duck #1

I substituted port for the sherry.... this turned out wonderfully, and the duck was very moist! Next time I'll start at 450 to render the fat and then come down to 350 for cooking for an hour or so. I prefer duck NOT well-done, but even this recipe (well done) left the duck moist and yummy! 6/23/2009

Shrimp and "Grits"

Shrimp and "Grits"

Tweak the cooking times to get your greens as crispy or soft as you like them. Take care not to overcook the shrimp, or it will turn chewy. [I posted this recipe.] — rubicat 6/19/2009
Fauxtatoes/grits- mashed cauliflower

Fauxtatoes/grits- mashed cauliflower

This is a highly malleable recipe. Use the cauliflower just as you would mashed potatoes, but the secret is the cream cheese, which makes it creamy. [I posted this recipe.] — rubicat 6/18/2009
Juicy butterflied roast chicken

Juicy butterflied roast chicken

Make sure you have a good pair of kitchen shears, a broiling pan, and a bowl of spices already prepared before you touch the chicken. I usually prep the chicken in my (cleaned) sink, which makes cleaning up the chicken easy: just fill with hot, soapy water and a bit of bleach! [I posted this recipe.] — rubicat 10/26/2008

The roux made this mac and cheese very flavourful. I am definitely making this again. :) 10/22/2008

Hi Rubicat,
Thanks for the medal - much appreciated! Although based in Scotland, I've visited Boston and loved it. Nice place to live!
