Perfect Flat Iron Steak

Reviewed: Sep. 26, 2009
Made this last night just as directed, except had to sub prepared brown mustard, and it does make a very tasty steak. I used 1" thick filets, med-rare, cooked 3 mins each side. Very pretty sliced on the platter too. Might try topping with some sauted mushrooms next time.

Artichoke Salsa

Reviewed: Mar. 1, 2014
I loved this new combination of fresh flavors... with pita chips was good... then I made a salad with shredded romain topped with brown rice, the salsa, and some avocado slices. Pretty on the plate, healthy, and refreshing. I'll save this recipe for summertime!

Persimmon Bread I

Reviewed: Dec. 28, 2008
Make MUFFINS-- I rate this 5 because it's a great thing to make when you've got persimmons coming out your ears, but I would never BUY persimmons to make these. I used 1/2 brown sugar, added 1/2 tsp allspice and 1/4 tsp nutmeg, and then baked in paper muffin cups at 325 for about 35 minutes. Makes about 18 medium-size muffins. Perfect for snacking with tea or for breakfast. Next time I might add coconut, dates, or dried cranberries or apples.

BUSH'S® Country Cornbread Hoppin' John

Reviewed: Jan. 14, 2008
We all enjoyed this for a quick lunch or simple dinner. It was surprisingly good "comfort food"... but, I guess you have to enjoy black-eyes before you're gonna like this dish. I've also made it with breakfast sausage instead of the bacon and it's equally as good and maybe a little "meatier" tasting for heartier eaters.

Honey Baked Chicken II

Reviewed: Sep. 20, 2007
Five stars for this one.... actually I used thick pork chops instead, but this seasoning blend is what makes it special. If anyone wants to try the chops, I baked them less time and about 325 degrees... Then softened some apple slices in the microwave, laid them over the chops (drizzled with the pan juices) for the last 15 minutes... Oh Yeah!

Hearty Breakfast Muffins

Reviewed: Apr. 20, 2014
These are terrific and about as healthy as you can get a muffin and still have it taste good... the oil, salt, & sugar being the negatives, but this makes 12 big hearty muffins, so 1/4 cup oil divided by 12?? I'm not gonna worry, altho I usually use light olive oil... AND, I love the flexiblity of this recipe... subbing dark or white raisuns, prunes, dates, cranberries, nuts... I made without the nuts or coconut and they were still wonderful. I use the old-fashion rolled oats so they add texture, especially if I don't add nuts. I like to shred the carrots very fine so they nearly disappear, no one guesses they're in there. You'll probably get more than 12 muffins if you add all the fruit & nuts... get out 2 pans to be ready. I now double the cinnamon and ginger, both good healthy spices, and sometime I'll add some flax seed and/or bran, added healthiness!! Thanks for sharing this recipe!!

Yakitori Don

Reviewed: Jun. 20, 2007
Wonderful flavor... I used chunks of chicken breast so it cooked just a little faster, then served it over rice, and garnished with chopped fresh cilentro and green onion. Also, I used a less salty soy sauce (one I get that's made in Hawaii). What a great meal served with sauteed (stir-fried) boy choy or other greens!

Butternut Squash Soup II

Reviewed: Nov. 10, 2010
Very good recipe.... makes a thick and flavorful soup. I have another squash soup recipe with curry seasoning and a recipe with squash, tomato, and black beans... so didn't really think I needed to try this one, but was glad I did!! I added a little garlic, curry, and cayenne that others have suggesested and served with the dollop of sour cream and sprinkle of dry cilantro or basil for garnish. Do not leave out the blender (or wand) step to insure that smooth consistency.

Baked Scallops

Reviewed: Feb. 1, 2007
I'll go 5 stars because the flavor was rich but complimentary and yet SSOoo easy! I used Italian bread crumbs and they tasted fine. I didn't put in the extra garlic, but will next time BUT I'll saute it in the butter first!

Lentil Quiche

Reviewed: Aug. 19, 2012
Good basic recipe... surprisingly and satisfyingly rich and hearty. My favorite is just as printed but substituting thin sliced carrots and cauliflower florets for the broccoli. I also used plain almond milk for the dairy and make sure it's a sharp Cheddar!!

Slow Cooker Barbecue Goose Sandwich

Reviewed: Jan. 6, 2007
So simple, so good.... the guys loved it with a little extra BBQ sauce added to their sandwiches. We cooked it just as it said with about 1 1/2 cups of Masterpiece BBQ sauce added at the end and then warmed thru. Makes a simple, homey, and comforting meal. I'll bet even our goose-hating friend would enjoy this recipe.

Creamy Cheesy Scrambled Eggs with Basil

Reviewed: Aug. 8, 2011
Surprisingly good! Serve alongside some cold poached salmon, a FRESH fruit cup (peaches!), and a special toast or muffin and you'll think you woke up at a Bed & Breakfast! Using a Teflon pan will help you get the eggs out of the pan. I also liked substituing sharp Cheddar for the Mozzarella and adding a dash of garlic powder as someone suggested. Another idea I like... is topping my sunnyside-up eggs with a few small basil leaves a minute or so before they're done... adds color and spice to them!!

German French Toast

Reviewed: Oct. 17, 2009
Not sure what provoked me to try this recipe... I guess because I was only cooking for myself and I like eggs, cheese, toast, butter... Frankly, I will never admit to my classy friends that I actually ate this, nor will I serve it to my husband, however I'm thinking if I'd just had a date with a guy that took me to one of those crazy beer restaurants that likes to serve a burger patty in a taco shell and taco meat on a bun... then (in the morning?) this recipe might just bring him down on one knee!! Ha!... good in a mom's comfort food sorta way. I used a Cheddar cheese and maple syrup.

NuNu's and Hot Dogs

Reviewed: Apr. 11, 2008
WOW! Best hotdogs I've had since last state fair (and come to think of it, I liked the coating, not the dog). This is the perfect quick recipe to make when you're hungry and DON'T want to cook... ie. beats fast food, hands down. It's also the perfect thing to serve alongside a big serving of steamed veges... or if your kids (and spouse) are food-educated and open-minded, saute the veges right in with the hotdogs. It's a five star for it's simplicity.

Swan's Summer Soup

Reviewed: Jul. 28, 2007
Fabulous, refreshing, and yet a satisfying finish to a hot summer day... freshness and quality of ingredients is imperative. Like others, I used prepared tomato juice to start, tomatoes from the garden, fresh (uncooked) corn off the cob, and threw in some fresh basil too. I served it along with some sauteed baby scallops, which my husband put in with his soup and enjoyed that way. And, as someone suggested.... the loaf of three-cheese bread and fresh, fruity olive oil was super!! I might suggest preparing, chilling, and serving the soup in the same day to keep the flavors their freshest.

Breakfast Pies

Reviewed: Nov. 7, 2009
I give 5 stars for it's versatility!!!.... I made spaghetti squash pies!! Really!... moist, touch of sweetness, lots of flavor... I sprayed bottoms only of muffin pan, then smooched refrigerated BREADSTICK dough around the sides and slightly in bottom and around rim. My filling: 1 link Italian sausage & 1/2 a small onion (precooked), added to 3 eggs, 2 T chopped fresh basil, 1/3 C grated Cheddar, 3/4 C precooked spaghetti squash. Made 12 pies... baked 25 mins at 375 degrees.

Black Bean Hummus

Reviewed: May 21, 2014
Does not replace regular hummus, but adds another great and healthy addition to my menus... I did not bother with the garnishes. Hubby says this is the first hummus he actually LIKED... (well, he's a little old fashioned in his food selections).

Grilled Gyro Burgers

Reviewed: Sep. 21, 2007
Wonderful flavor for a unique sandwich... I tweeked the recipe by using low-fat sour cream, Italian dressing mix (usually no MSG), skipped the lettuce but added slivered red onion to the cucumber mixture.... Then garnished with fresh cilentro and lime wedges to squeeze over the fillings. I thought it was flavorful, juicy, and a refreshing change from just another burger!!
