Hot German Potato Salad III

Reviewed: Aug. 25, 2007
A family favorite. I double the recipe as it reheats really well. We serve with brats from the grill.

Dip For The Stars

Reviewed: Nov. 24, 2007
Because of previous reviews, I used mild feta. Next time I will use a flavored feta. Be sure to drain everything as posted. Turned out great. Cut it to 1/3 for six people, just right.

Chocolate Lovers' Favorite Cake

Reviewed: Nov. 24, 2007
Excellent. Didn't have almond extract, so I used orange. Used 1 cup mini morsels, and 1 cup special dark chips. Baked in an tube pan, no problem. Served with fresh whipped cream and whole strawberries. Delicious!

Hazelnut Chicken in Prosciutto-Cream Sauce

Reviewed: Nov. 24, 2007
I have made this a couple of times and have a hard time cooking the breasts without burning the hazelnuts. Next time I will brown, and the bake. Flavor is great, and the whole family enjoys this meal.

Cranberry-Pear Tossed Salad

Reviewed: Jan. 16, 2008
Used bosc pears, and pecans. Was a nice change of pace with good flavors. A little on the sweet side, but still very enjoyable.

Quiche Lorraine I

Reviewed: May 11, 2008
A nice base from which to build. Added ingredients based on family preference. Varied up the cheese to include Swiss, pepper jack, NY white cheddar, etc.

Awesome Honey Pecan Pork Chops

Reviewed: Jul. 7, 2008
Used 1/4 c. honey, then added bourbon until I had 1/3 c. of liquid. Had 1.5 lbs. of boneless, butterfly chops. Even after pounding they were too thick to cook quickly. So, I added the liquid and the pecans to the chops, and they simmered in the sauce. Yum. The sauce thickened before they were finished, so I added more honey, this time with OJ to meet the 1/3 c. mark. The chops finished with a delicious honey glaze, and the sauce was perfect over rice. Rave reviews.

Country Fried Steak and Milk Gravy

Reviewed: Aug. 7, 2008
Quite good. Prepared with Crisco in a cast iron skillet, adding spices as noted by other reviewers. Had to add an additional 1/4 c. of Crisco to prevent burning, and to garner enough drippings for gravy. Still came out short on gravy. Will make again, with more gravy.

Broccoli with Garlic Butter and Cashews

Reviewed: Aug. 16, 2008
I thought this was too sweet, but my broccoli junkie son thought it was perfect. Three out of four family members gave it a five, and one gave it a one.

Lamb Chops with Balsamic Reduction

Reviewed: Aug. 16, 2008
Due to the length of time to reduce the sauce, the chops continued to cook past medium, while holding, and ended up served medium well. Prepared in a cast iron skillet. The taste was great. Next time will sear in skillet and remove, then prepare sauce.

Apple Cole Slaw

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.
