I have tried many of the recipes from both books, and like many of you have mentioned, some are a bit labor intensive. I, however, LOVE to cook, so I kinda saw it as a challenge. Off the top of my head (hard to say without the book in front of me), the ones I have liked best are the lemon couscous chicken, the portobello pizzas, the beef kabobs with peanut sauce, the soufflé chicken, portobellos with goat cheese... There was one, and the name is escaping me...I think it's savory chicken sauté? I have not had much luck with the seafood recipes from the books, which is sad b/c I love seafood. And one recipe I will NOT try again is the parmesan popovers from the cookbook...blech. Ended up tasting like really bland wheat muffins.
From the recipe section on this website, my favorite recipe is the stuffed pork chops. Definitely a pleaser!
BTW, I agree about the sausage egg cups...way too dry for me.
