Caramelized oranges with french vanilla ice cream: A good deal of work for an only OK flavor. They taste pretty much exactly the way you would imagine them to. While I could imagine some ways to improve this, (e.g., instead of the simple orange-caramel sauce, do something a good deal more alcoholic) it’s not obvious that the work is worth the effort.
Sage chicken and rosemary potatos: Yum. I need to cook more often.
