I have personally tried, and usually tweaked, these recipes to produce a "killer" meal.  Bare in mind that the best meals are created with the best ingredients.  I use fresh ingredients whenever I can, and the highest (higher) quality dried herbs I can find.  The second most important thing, proportions... measure everything and get the portions correct to make entrées you'll love to repeat!
