Shepherd's Pie VI

Reviewed: Jan. 6, 2010
followed recipe fairly closely while using some suggestions. instead of beef broth, added 1 cup water and 1 packet bown gravy. instead of cooking carrots, added frozen veggies (corn, carrots, peas, and greenbeans.) added worcestershire sauce in with the ground beef while cooking, should have added a little more. more ketchup too next time i think, probably 1/4 cup. tasty dish.

Delicious Ham and Potato Soup

Reviewed: Dec. 20, 2009
this was pretty good! i made a couple changes for more flavor. i used veggie broth so the chicken flavor didnt overpower the ham. i added a few more potatoes. i cooked the onion in a little olive oil with minced garlic before adding it in. i added the salt and pepper to the roux, instead of to the broth. also threw in 2 tsp ground mustard for flavor, and a little thyme. to make this even better for us, i used skim milk. i think next time i will add some fresh spinach to it as well, nice for color and texture. i also added 1 cup shredded parm cheese to the soup. very happy, freezes well too. thank you!

Spinach Quiche

Reviewed: Dec. 14, 2009
I used fresh spinach and fresh mushrooms, and also added a red bell pepper to the mix. i first sauteed the onions and garlic in a little butter and a touch of olive oil, and then set them aside in a bowl. then i cooked the mushrooms and red bell pepper, and cooked down the spinach. i added that to the bowl and mixed. then added the cheeses. i prepared two pie tins with crusts, spread half of the mixture in each. i used 8 eggs in total, and still only 1 cup of milk. i split that between the pies and it made the perfect amount. otherwise followed recipe as stated. thanks alot!

Slow Cooker Chicken Taco Soup

Reviewed: Nov. 24, 2009
i was very happy with this one. for chili beans, i used kidney beans...im assuming that was what was meant. definitely dont skip the beer. i used bud. doubled it for a large party, and had no leftovers. i made jalapeno cornbread to go with it. (homesteader cornbread recipe from this site w/ jalapenos added to batter.)

Apple Crisp II

Reviewed: Nov. 9, 2009
this is WAY better than my old apple crisp recipe. i used 5 granny smith apples and 5 cortland apples. i tossed the apples in the sugar mixture. i also added some nutmeg, and reduced water to 1/4 cup. it was not watery at all, but i think it would have been with the full amount. increased topping to double the amount. the topping was REALLY good. very pleased, thank you!

Banana Crumb Muffins

Reviewed: Nov. 9, 2009
these werent bad. changed a few things. added 1/4 tsp nutmeg and 1/2 tsp cinnamon to the dry mixture. added 1/2 tsp vanilla to the wet mixture. after mixing together, added 1/4 cup chopped walnuts and 1/4 cup milk chocolate chips. (my husband calls these Chunky Monkey Muffins.) i also added old fashioned oats to the topping. came out nice, cooked on 350 for 25 min, since i made large muffins and wanted them to cook inside and not burn outside.

Roasted Red Pepper and Crab Soup

Reviewed: Sep. 8, 2009
this was really good! i did change it a bit. started off by sauteeing onions, garlic, and celery in olive oil. when they were soft, added 6 medium red potatoes (one would not have been NEARLY enough.) and vegetable broth. added seasonings, a little extra cayenne per our tastes, and also some parsley. let this heat up while the peppers roasted, peeled them and added them in. brought it to a boil and added the half and half. after the potatoes were soft, used my hand soup blender to puree all. got a lovely color and flavor. wish i had fresh crab, but had to go with 6 cans of lump crab and also threw in one can of baby shrimp. towards the end, added a few torn leaves of spinach for color and let them wilt in the heat. got lots of compliments!

Deb's Scallops Florentine

Reviewed: Aug. 20, 2009
this was really good! i used half and half instead of heavy cream and it was plenty thick. i didnt use the mozz at all. i didnt parboil the scallops, just cooked them for 20 min and broiled for 5. i added a pound of shrimp and doubled the sauce. i used fresh spinach that i dry fried until soft. added garlic to the roux. i would have given 5 stars for taste, except for all the changes i made! definitely serve over pasta or rice for a full meal. very tasty sauce.

Pickled Red Beet Eggs

Reviewed: Aug. 9, 2009
these were.....interesting. it was a special request from my hubby. i tried one, and it wasnt bad. he ate the rest! haha! i had to add a little warm water to make enough liquid to cover the eggs. after a few days, the flavor came out alot more. im not sure how i feel about the color, but he assures me that is how they are supposed to look LOL

Red Velvet Cake

Reviewed: Aug. 9, 2009
this needed alot of changes. i made it following recipe the first time, VERY DRY and non uniform color. the second time, i used 1 cup oil instead of shortening. 4 tablespoons cocoa. when making the paste, i also added a tbsp of buttermilk to it, it made it much easier to get the color right. no brown swirls. i used 2 cups sugar. beat the frosting TO DEATH or it wont come out right. all in all, my hubby was happy with his birthday cake! it was what he requested. i thought it could have been better.

Chicken Alfredo

Grilled Swordfish with Rosemary

Reviewed: Jun. 29, 2009
i would have given this three stars, and my husband said five, so we compromised. it was oooookay....but really the lemon "sauce" was kind of overpowering. which surprised me coz swordfish is fishy! but it didnt do much for me. i think it was just tooooo liquidy for a sauce. it would be better if it was thickened into a glaze. made with asparagus and baby red potatoes.

Poblano Chile Enchiladas a la Gringa

Reviewed: Jun. 23, 2009
these were really good! loved the flavor of the sauce. i usually make enchiladas verdes, with tomatillos. where i'm at, tomatillos arent cheap! this was definitely AS good as that recipe, for much less money and effort. i did a couple things different. i didnt use chicken, i used shrimp. so i didnt need to cook the chicken in the onion, garlic, broth mixture. i just put a cup of broth with some garlic and onion in my blender at the same time as the sour cream and peppers. used flour tortillas, and didnt fry them in oil, just warmed them up in the micro. i mixed up a little corn/blackbean salsa to go on the insides. 2 chopped plum tomatoes 3/4 can of sweet corn 1/2 can black beans 1/2 chopped small red onion 1 teaspoon lime juice salt and pepper mix all ingredients. put this, cheddar cheese, and sauce on the insides of the enchiladas with the shrimp, topped them with more sauce and cheese, baked for 30 min. perfect!

Baked Dijon Salmon

Reviewed: Jun. 19, 2009
i have now made this a few times and am upgrading to 5 stars. every time i make this, the table is quiet except for mmmm noises. i have never had anyone say they didnt like it, most people rave about how amazing it is. the honey mustard is the best ive ever tasted, and ill use it in other recipes from now on. i make double the sauce and save half for dipping. i leave out the nuts. otherwise, recipe is the exact same and it is perfect. thanks!
