Donna Hay recipes- finally used one..sort of.

I don't know if there is anyone else out there like me, but I love Donna Hay cookbooks and magazines. I have purchased them, poured and poured over the photos and recipes.
The photography is outstanding and appeals to all my senses.

However, I wondered if the recipes were any good. I worried that the food was so posed that the recipes might not be that great. I did the same thing with Martha Stewart's recipes. I'm over that now.

So I made a twist on her Asian Carmelized Pork Salad. I used mushrooms and chicken breasts, different herbs, and I messed with the sauce. I sure hope I can do this again because we all LOVED it! I love most that I'm able to use the sauce that I cooked the chicken and mushrooms in, reduced it and used it for a dressing. It was gorgeous and full of layers of flavor. Sweet, tart, salty. spicy, all of it.
What I liked most was her shortcut twist to a could be complicated dish.
All in about 30 minutes.

So. Is there anyone else that has actually tried her recipes?
