Fennel Pork Chops

Reviewed: Feb. 18, 2011
Very simple recipe. It was a good excuse to use some wine that I had left over from another recipe. I must say that fennel seed has become my new favorite herb! I ran out of garlic salt but the meat still had plenty of flavor. When I boxed the leftovers, I put a few more fresh fennel seeds and some of the remaining sauce over the meat. So, we will see how it tastes tomorrow. Simple, quick, doesn't require many ingredients, gives the meat a nice flavor.

Roasted Asparagus and Garlic

Reviewed: Feb. 18, 2011
I used dried thyme since I didn't have any fresh and diced my garlic cloves. I probably would do 2x as much asparagus next time because there was plenty of flavor to go around! Good thing I'll be working from home tomorrow! Simple recipe, strong flavor, a different way to prepare a vegetable that I sometimes get tired of.

Portuguese Chicken I

Reviewed: Feb. 18, 2011
I used 3 boneless chicken breasts. After they cooked, I shredded them. The sauce is rich and wonderful! I didn't add salt or pepper (yet). I found the sauce to be very flavorful with the wine and garlic. It was not very thick but was still quite creamy. I may make this again but try to reduce the fat (less butter, alternatives for the heavy cream). It was a great excuse to use the wine and cream from another meal I made a few days ago.

Brilliant Sauteed Broccoli

Reviewed: Feb. 15, 2011
There are several great things about this recipe. 1) It's easy. 2) The broccoli stays very green and fresh looking. 3) The spiciness of the red peppers. I omitted the brown sugar based on the reviews of others.

Chicken Cordon Bleu II

Reviewed: Feb. 15, 2011
I made this for my parents, who are somewhat picky eaters. It turned out great! The hardest part is getting the toothpicks out after you've already cooked the chicken.

The Best Slow Cooker Cream Corn

Reviewed: Apr. 9, 2007
I've made this three times so far for parties, and everyone loves it. It is very rich, but worth the calories! And it's very simple. I use a combination of white sweet corn and yellow corn. I made it at night, refrigerated it, and then started heating it the next day. It seems to be a hard recipe to mess up!

Tres Leches (Milk Cake)

Reviewed: Mar. 5, 2007
My parents tried this dessert at a restaurant, told me about it and I looked it up on allrecipes.com. They said that it's pretty close to what the restaurant served. I've made it 2 times and have gotten compliments both times, and requests for the recipe.
