Crescent Beef Casserole

Reviewed: Jan. 14, 2011
Interesting casserole and great way to use up leftover feta. Next time I will add minced garlic to the sauteed veggies.

Cabbage and Dumplings

Reviewed: Nov. 15, 2009
If using soy sauce, as other suggest, omit the salt for seasoning as it makes it too salty. Yummy dish and so easy to make! I was confused about when the dumplings were ready but it took about five minutes in boiling water.

Sundried Tomato Tapenade

Reviewed: Oct. 27, 2009
Simply delicious! So easy to make and when used as a bruschetta topper, this is a quick and impressive party dish! I used fresh basil and let sit for 6 hours before spooning on top of lightly oiled bruschetta pieces that then baked at 350 for 6 minutes. Even my 4-year-olds were raving!

Empanadas

Reviewed: May 3, 2010
I was short on time but couldn't find a reviewer who had attempted to make these without refrigerating the dough overnight. But I did it anyway and they turned out great! Here's how: After making the dough, wrap in plastic and chill in fridge for 30 minutes. Using a generous amount of flour on your surface, rolling pin and the dough itself, roll out gently -- being careful to always re-flour as it will get sticky if you don't (because you haven't chilled it overnight). I was also surprised at how much of the sugar/cinnamon mixture these absorbed after coming out of the oven looking a bit dry. No way! They were coated! I used Nutella for filling. Next time I'll use 5" circles because Nutella is so rich that this could have used a higher dough-to-filling ratio. :) SIMPLY YUM!

Zucchini Snack Bread

Reviewed: May 18, 2010
Wow! The density of this loaf makes it more like a bread, but the moist consistency and finger-licking sweetness make it a real treat. I used apple sauce instead of oil (helps with the moisture) and increased the shredded zucchini from 2 cups to 3 cups (hence, the density) and it was DELISH.

Potato Lasagna

Reviewed: Jul. 27, 2010
Using what I had on hand, I ended up changing this entire recipe but for my own personal record, will comment and rate it. I used white potatoes, cut very thinly (mandolin size), sliced zucchini in place of the carrots, red pepper instead of the green, and a cheese fondue mixture (we live in Switzerland so American cheeses are hard to come by). I added a container of cottage cheese and used seasoned tomato puree instead of the vodka sauce. So really a completely different recipe but very tasty. It ended up like more of a Lasagna Stew which I thought was delish and so did the kids.

Sweet Maple Pork Chops

Reviewed: Dec. 4, 2009
Way too sweet for our liking. Followed the instructions of other reviewers and double-dipped the chops (oatmeal/cream mixture/oatmeal again) -- that worked really well. Also listened to others and reduced the cream and oil by more than half. I think next time I'd try half the maple syrup to see if that make it less sweet because pork chops should not taste like candy!!

Cinnamon Sugar Biscotti

Reviewed: Dec. 23, 2009
**THANK YOU** Angela C. for the amazing suggestion of using this base recipe but omitting the cinnamon and adding white chocolate and craisins! I added 1 cup of craisins and 4 sq of chopped white chocolate and then sprinkled finely grated white chocolate and white sugar on top before the final bake. YUM YUM YUM!!!!

Sweet Potato and Curried Red Lentil Pizza

Reviewed: Nov. 3, 2011
I think there is a mistake in the directions. The submitter states that she uses a "curried red lentil sauce" in place of tomato sauce but the directions call for it all to be stirred in together. I came up with nothing but mush. It still tasted good but the texture was a bit off-putting. Next time, I'll try frying up the onions, garlic, spices (which is more traditional Indian style) and add the lentils to that. Then make the sweet potato/eggplant mixture on it's own.

Gorgonzola Sauce

Reviewed: Sep. 8, 2011
I slightly modified this recipe and ended up with a restaurant-quality meal! I found the recipe because I was trying to find something I could make that would use the gorgonzola/cranberry/walnut cheese mold I recently bought at Trader Joe's (which was not so good on its own). I fried up some onions and garlic in olive oil, set that aside and grilled up some chicken breast. Then, setting aside the chicken but leaving the scraps in the pan, I reduced the wine (using a sweet Moscato wine) and then used 1% milk instead of cream and 5 ounces of the gorgonzola dip (but no parmesan). Also added a few ounces of goats cheese. The nutmeg definitely seals this sauce. Once the flavors were blended, I mixed in the cooked onions and the chicken. Then stirred in cooked quinoa linguine and some lightly steamed broccoli before serving. Delicious!!!

Mediterranean Puff Pastry Chicken

Reviewed: Jan. 25, 2010
For how pro this looks and tastes, there is very little prep involved. I didn't marinade but put on crushed garlic clove on top of each chicken breast instead. Will try the marinade next time. FIVE STARS!!!!

Potatoes Madras

Reviewed: Feb. 10, 2010
This looks awful but tastes DIVINE! I omit the vinegar, serve the chutney as a side rather than cooked inside and I let it simmer for at least 40 minutes to keep the lentils soft.

Rosemary Chicken and Fries

Reviewed: Jun. 28, 2011
FIVE STARS! Used boneless skinless chicken breast and put in the oven during the last 25 minutes. Real rosemary is crucial to the success of this dish. Used real crushed garlic as well. Delicious!

Overnight Blueberry French Toast

Reviewed: Jun. 22, 2011
I reduced cream cheese to 1/2 a package and added 1% milk and plain organic yogurt instead. Doubled the blueberries, too. Didn't do the syrup as it was sweet enough as is!
