Here's the report card, as graded by the household.
Fifteen-minute fish--Easy. Fast. Ingredients you have in your house (olive oil, butter, flour, almonds, lemon, optional parsley). As my techie friends say, "FTW"
Orange Cake--I love the spirit of this recipe. Rather than juice an and zest the orange, the entire thing goes into the food processor with some nuts and cranberries (or raisins).
I got the recipe from a friend of mine who was trained in Europe and works part-time as a personal chef. I have a feeling that mad-substitutions may have gone too far. The flavor was good, but it was a very squishy short cake, more like banana-bread-like than cake. I'll have to her for pointers. A solid recipe, but still under development in the Greenhouse.
