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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.
