Baked Brie with Mushrooms and Almonds

Reviewed: Mar. 26, 2009
I've made this several times for dinner at home or to bring to parties and it's been very well-received. I've always used fresh mushrooms, which I would suggest since it adds no time to the recipe and tastes great. I do often add a bit extra brie or cut back on the mushrooms though, because 8 oz. is a lot for one wheel of cheese. I also once added fresh diced tomatoes on top after cooking, which improved the presentation greatly but didn't really have a huge effect on the flavor.

Restaurant-Style Buffalo Chicken Wings

Reviewed: Mar. 26, 2009
I made these for a super bowl party and they were a huge hit. I used the raw pre-cut chicken tenders and coated them with the flour mixture the day before. I also made the hot sauce-butter the day before and reheated it in the microwave before coating the fried chicken. That worked fine, but the mix did seperate a bit and required lengthy re-stirring. In retrospect, it probably would have been easier to make that portion while frying the chicken. Also, I'm not sure how hot the oil in my fryer was (it was borrowed so I'd never used it before) but the first batch, which I cooked for 10 minutes before checking, were overcooked. I shortened the subsequent batches to only five minutes and that was much better. I've also made this quick and simple (though not healthy) sauce several times since that party and it's always been delicious, even on a buffalo chicken pizza once.

Cheesecake Cookie Cups

Reviewed: Mar. 26, 2009
These were only okay. The cheesecake overwhelmed the cookie in flavor, so I would recommend using a little less cheesecake. I also would never put canned fruit atop them again. That really ruined them (way too sweet). I'd suggest a slice of a fresh strawberry or a raspberry instead. In the end though, a good regular slice of cheesecake would easily trump these cheesecake cookie cups.

Annie's Fruit Salsa and Cinnamon Chips

Reviewed: Mar. 26, 2009
I got tons of compliments on both the dip and the cinnamon chips. Both were pretty easy to make. I put all the fruit into my food processor and then stirred in strawberry jam after. It was runnier than in the photo shown that way (and I had a lot extra - I would recommend tripling the amount of chips because they go fast) but very delicious. For the chips, I mixed the cinnamon and sugar in a bowl, sprayed the chips with cooking spray and dropped them into the mix. Very easy and a hit!

Spinach-Infused Mashed Potatoes

Reviewed: Mar. 26, 2009
These were horrible. I love spinach and couldn't taste it or anything but the peppers in these mashed potatoes. I would suggest making a standard traditional mash potato over these any day of the week.

Caesar Vinaigrette

Reviewed: Nov. 29, 2009
Tasty dressing, though I wouldn't really describe it as a caesar. More like a vinaigrette that is slightly reminiscent of a caesar. I didn't have any Italian seasoning so I used a sprinkle of basil, thyme and oregano each and I used about half the recommended lemon zest because that's all I had on hand.

Blackened Tuna Steaks with Mango Salsa

Reviewed: Nov. 29, 2009
This was delicious but I would make a few changes if I decided to make it again. The salsa was very heavily flavored like cilantro, which I don't care for, even though I added a fresh minced habanero because we love spicy food. So I would cut that in half unless you're a big cilantro fan. Also, depending on the thickness of your tuna steaks, a 3 minute saute time might not be a good idea. I had 1 and 1/4 inch steaks I would estimate and they were definitely on the medium well side after the three minutes on one side and a minute on the other. I prefer my fish midrare to medium, if of good quality of course, so next time I will cut that long saute time in half (doing 90 seconds per). That being said, the dish was a huge hit with my fiance and we made chicken on the grill outside later in the week and topped it with the leftover salsa, greatly impressing our other guests.

Pear and Blue Cheese Salad

Reviewed: Dec. 13, 2009
I changed the recipe quite a bit, but loved it still. The dressing, for which I used plain yoghurt instead of mayo and grapeseed oil instead of walnut oil, was fabulous. It was a little sweet so I would perhaps cut back (just a little!) the amounts of maple syrup and sugar next time. For the salad I tossed romaine lettuce with red onion, blackberries and bleu cheese crumbles. The berries offered a nice texture contrast that I'm not sure the pears, unless diced, could have. We decided to put this in a bread bowl because we were missing Perkin's discontinued bread bowl salad, and I have to say this was superb that way. The dressing still had a little tang to it on the breadbowl and was great. It was all very quick too, I'd easily recommend this as a last minute dinner.

Banana Sour Cream Bread

Reviewed: Feb. 16, 2010
Excellent! The bread is very moist and the cinnamon sugar crust is tasty. I didn't have an appropriate pan so I used a large cast iron pan. Not sure if that was why or if the recipe time was inaccurate to begin with, but I did end up cooking the bread for almost two hours, as well as increasing the temperature to 325 for the second half.

Roasted Chicken with Risotto and Caramelized Onions

Reviewed: Feb. 16, 2010
The risotto was good, but it turned out very very sweet (and I love balsamic) so it was hard to eat more than a few bites of it. Also, I added mushrooms which I would completely recommend.

Marie's Easy Slow Cooker Pot Roast

Reviewed: Feb. 16, 2010
As some other reviewers recommended, I substituted red wine and beef brother for the water. Also, I added an extra carrot, a few extra stalks of celery and used about 6 baby red potatoes. With the extra veggies, 2 cups of both red wine and beef broth were required to cover all the ingredients in my very full slow cooker. The end result was amazing. The meat was so tender and delicious and the veggies were that perfect mushy texture. We had a ton of leftovers so I froze half and plan to eat it soon - can't wait!

Strawberry Champagne Punch

Reviewed: Feb. 16, 2010
Used 1.25 liters of ginger ale, 18 oz. of frozen strawberries and a bottle of champagne. Made it for a football party and everyone loved it as a refreshing alternative to beer.

Mediterranean Chicken

Reviewed: Mar. 7, 2010
For the amount of work required, this recipe was a complete dud. The chicken turned out bland and boring.

Arrabbiata Sauce

Reviewed: Jan. 9, 2011
This wasn't a very spice arrabiata - I added two diced jalapenos to increase the spice level. It was rather chunky as well, so I ended up putting the sauce in the food processer after finishing, which ruined the parsley addition, but maintained the flavor. The sauce also needs salt - I added about a teaspoon and a half or so. Easy to double and freeze extra for nights when a quick dinner is in order.

Daria's Slow Cooker Beef Stroganoff

Reviewed: Jan. 9, 2011
This was delicious, though I made a few adjustments. I used a whole onion, fresh sliced mushrooms, fresh chive and used red wine (3/4 cup) instead of the water and white wine. I also used a cup of beef broth rather than the bouillon. I also only had about 8 oz. of sour cream, so I used a few spoonfuls of a homemade jalapeno sour cream I had leftover and just the tiniest spice came through, which had a lot of depth to the flavors. Grated pecorino over the top - delicious!

Grilled Asian Chicken

Reviewed: Jan. 9, 2011
Delicious! I'm an apartment dweller though, so couldn't follow the directions (ie grilling) exactly. Instead, I marinated the chicken overnight and then baked it while simmering the leftover marinade (I had doubled the amount because I like it saucy ;) to pour over the chicken, which I served on a bed of rice. Quick, easy and pays off bigtime!

Quinoa with Chickpeas and Tomatoes

Reviewed: May 8, 2011
AMAZING! I added chopped avocado and diced red onion as well, and this was excellent. So fresh and tasty. Sprinkle a bit of feta over it if you like.

Strawnana Bread

Reviewed: May 22, 2011
Delicious! I used this recipe to make muffins and bread and both were great, flavorful and moist. I did substitute lemon zest as I didn't have an orange, and slivered almonts for the walnuts. Brought to work and everyone loved and my husband finished off so quickly as well!

Hot Cocoa Mix in a Jar

Reviewed: Mar. 13, 2013
This was delightful! I made a huge batch to give to colleagues and friends as gifts and everyone loved it. I, of course, had to sample as well and thought it was the best cocoa I've ever had. I did use vanilla-flavored non-dairy creamer and instead of cocoa powder (I ran out and didn't realize) I chopped up a ghiradelli chocolate bar and put it in the food processor before adding to the mix. I also wanted a layered effect so I chopped up candy canes to put on top with mini marshmallows and chocolate chips. Served in a bell jar with a ribbon and it was a great holiday gift. Cheap too - I figured that it only cost about $9 per gift including the jar and ribbon.
