Chicken Breasts with Balsamic Vinegar and Garlic

Reviewed: Jan. 22, 2012
we are NOT mushroom people, but have a really nice bottle of balsamic that i wanted to find new uses for. i went ahead with a mix of "gourmet" (that's what the pkg said) mushrooms and we loved it! hubby even said he'd eat it again. super easy to make and very flavorful. i also skipped the flower dredging and just browned the first side in EVOO.

Eclair Cake with Chocolate Ganache

Reviewed: Nov. 27, 2011
UPDATE: the second time around I beat the dough a lot more, until it was more creamy, and it spread easily in the pan. It poofed up like the recipe said and wasn't as eggy tasting. It was perfect! This is so delicious! My crust didn't poof up like the recipe said so I was a little worried, but it came out just fine. It was a bit eggy; I might try it with 3 eggs instead of 4 next time. Make sure you use heavy whipping cream (if your grocery store doesn't carry "heavy cream"), especially for the ganache, and it to a boil before adding it to the chocolate. It also must sit for 1-2 minutes before whisking it together. Otherwise it may not harden.

Baked Chicken Reuben

Reviewed: Dec. 10, 2010
i LOVE reubens....but, i thought this was just okay. it wasn't disgusting but the leftovers are being passed up....don't think i'll make it again. next time i'd rather just make reubens, even if it's with chicken instead of corned beef.

Garlic Broccoli

Reviewed: Dec. 10, 2010
this sauce would be really good as a stir fry sauce too. next time i'll go easy on the red pepper flakes though--a bit spicy for me!

Pumpkin Pastina

Reviewed: Dec. 10, 2010
this is super easy, a good fall/winter dish, and a nice way to use turkey leftovers. i made it with orzo pasta and 1 c of pumpkin puree instead of squash. the best bites are the ones with turkey--next time i'll double the turkey. it didn't blow my socks off but it was comforting and i would make it again. you could probably substitute any spices other than thyme if you prefer--garlic, basil, italian spices, etc.

Maple-Drizzled Apple Muffins

Reviewed: Dec. 5, 2010
delicious and moist. the drizzle makes them very candy-like (my husband's words). I used half wheat flour and went light on the sugar. highly recommended--i used real maple syrup too--the fake stuff probably makes them too sweet.

Mini Corncakes with Basil, Avocado Spread and Smoked Salmon

Reviewed: Oct. 11, 2010
5 stars because my husband LOVED this. I didn't have smoked salmon, but just pan fried some salmon with lemon juice and pepper (i'd bet it's even better with smoked salmon). the corn cakes are super easy and fun to make--like little pancakes--and the avocado spread is simple, with room to personalize.
