Fruit Sherbet

Reviewed: Jun. 27, 2012
Excellent as written, easily modified. I used a combo of fat free half and half and skim milk. Use whatever juice combinations you prefer that end up at 2 1/2 cups. Also, reduced the sugar to 1 cup. Mix everything up, store in fridge for an hour or two then used my electric ice cream maker. A splash of vodka kept it from freezing hard. Very light and refreshing. Scoop it into hollowed out oranges, peaches, etc then freeze and it's presentable for company.

Lemon Cream Pasta with Chicken

Reviewed: Nov. 8, 2010
I've made this recipe several times as written. However, today it was a little different. My oldest son was home from college and we ended up visiting a little too long. So, I picked up a rotisserie chicken from the take home department of the grocery store and used that instead of baking the chicken. It cuts the time down significantly. I cleaned/cut up the chicken while the pasta was boiling. Whipped it together in a little over half an hour- start to finish. Delicious as written and great as modified! Served with roasted asparagus and some crunchy sourdough. Practically perfect. Plus hubby enjoyed the dark meat addition.

Baked Garlic Green Beans

Reviewed: May 26, 2010
It moves up to five stars if you use fresh green beans (usually about a pound) blanched for 5 minutes, and balsamic vinegar- either white or regular.

Basil Vinaigrette Dressing

Reviewed: Nov. 1, 2009
Rave reviews every time I serve. I use primarily with pasta salad, using the five steps as published in USA today.

Great Grandma Johns' Pasties

Reviewed: Aug. 13, 2009
This is a nice simple recipe. For a busy night shortcut, I used the Pillsbury pie crusts, and serve with Heinz jar gravy. You can whip them up pretty quickly and pop them in the oven.

Italian Breaded Pork Chops

Reviewed: Aug. 13, 2009
Good, but not great. I usually use Italian breadcrumbs when I cook, so they did not add a special flavor for us. These were just baked, breaded chops.

Enchilada Casserole III

Reviewed: Aug. 13, 2009
For us, this was okay. I think it's a lot easier to just make enchiladas.

Penne with Spicy Vodka Tomato Cream Sauce

Reviewed: Aug. 13, 2009
This is a good compromise dish for us, in that I love a cream sauce and the rest of the family likes a red sauce. It's not something we have often, but it get's solid good marks when we do have.

Succulent Grilled Hickory Pork Chops

Reviewed: Aug. 13, 2009
It's not an overwhelming flavor, but it is a good flavor. Absolutely need the hickory chips/charcoal. Chops were juicy and tender.

Portobello Penne Pasta Casserole

Reviewed: Feb. 24, 2009
Not bad. Did not really care for the soy flavor. Next time will use balsamic vinegar instead, add roasted red peppers, a little pepper jack, and maybe some Italian sausage. I think the sauce needs to simmer longer in order to meld the flavors. I'd have a bite with a strong soy taste, then one with flour, then one with cheese.

Fettuccini with Mushroom, Ham and Rose Sauce

Reviewed: Jan. 26, 2009
Very good. Family hates a cream sauce, and I get tired of the same old red sauce. This is a nice compromise.

Sage Pork Chops

Reviewed: Jan. 26, 2009
Very good. Used thick, center cut boneless chops. Came out very tender and flavorful. Much more roast like than chop like.

Juicy Roasted Chicken

Reviewed: Jan. 26, 2009
Good, but not great. Rather bland in the flavor department, albeit very juicy. Made a hellacious mess in my oven, with the margarine splatter. Will attempt again with less margarine, and way more spices.

Steak Pie

Reviewed: Jan. 26, 2009
Good. Kind of like a stew with pastry on top. A solid foundation from which to tweak with your own style. Next time, I will dice the meat smaller (used London Broil, subbed red wine for the water and herbs de provence), will eliminate the egg wash on the pastry as this seemed to prevent the pastry from puffing. Will add veggies to taste.

My Crab Cakes

Reviewed: Jan. 26, 2009
Delish. Followed the advice of others and doubled the crab. Eliminated the crackers and added the flour/bking. powder/sherry combo previously recommended. Refrigerated after combining. Fried in cast iron skillet. They are soft when first placed in skillet, but they do hold together.

Chicken Breasts with Balsamic Vinegar and Garlic

Reviewed: Jan. 6, 2009
Not a favorite. Actually tasted rather bland with a slight hint of sweetness that was unpleasant. Trying to figure out what to do with the leftovers - of which there are quite a bit.

Swiss Chicken Casserole I

Reviewed: Dec. 21, 2008
A solid go-to meal after a long day. One pan, no muss, no fuss. I usually add a little white wine to the soup can to clean out the leftover, and add a little something more to the sauce.

Apple Walnut Salad with Cranberry Vinaigrette

Reviewed: Dec. 21, 2008
The dressing was a little thick, easy to fix with a little more vinegar. Used red d'anjou pears, bleu cheese, and sliced the onions. Perfect holiday salad.

Easy Apple Coleslaw

Reviewed: Nov. 11, 2008
Quite good. The ratio of apples to slaw was a little high, will add more slaw next time. Added toasted walnuts, craisins and raisins. Used the lemon juice to toss the apples (julienne) added cider vinegar to the dressing. Had to add more cider and mayo to make enough (we prefer our slaw moist). Big hit with the kids, hubby frowned until he had a taste.
