Julie's Chicken Salad

Reviewed: May 1, 2010
Very tasty; would be better in main apple season, but satisfying enough to not snack between meals

Caramel Apple Dip

Reviewed: Oct. 28, 2009
Excellent. After reading other reviews, I used 1c caramel pieces (easier than unwrapping), 1T vanilla, and wound up with the full 1/2c brown sugar, though I added it in 2 steps. It was not unduly sweet, the texture was wonderful, and recovered after refrigerating. Also used 1/3 less fat cream cheese. Yummy recipe.

Blueberry Zucchini Bread

Reviewed: Sep. 11, 2009
Excellent flavor & texture all around. I used paper mini loaf 'pans' that cost .60 each and baked them on a heavy cookie sheet. They took a bit longer to bake than the recipe, but the toothpick test was easy and accurate. No need to grease the paper pans, they look very nice for gift giving (brown-ish w/a design), and peeled right off the bread without marring it at all.

Spicy Grilled Shrimp

Reviewed: May 24, 2009
5-23-09 Not that good. Try the grilled shrimp w/tomato sauce and basil next time. Using skewers did make it easier.

Deb's Scallops Florentine

Reviewed: Apr. 16, 2009
Very good & easy. Added a tiny bit extra half & half to cream so it would be enough for pasta. Also added some nutmeg to the cream mixture. Used some piave cheese mixed with packaged mozzarella blend. Cooked a bag of spinach. Did not precook scallops (or shrimp) and they were fine.

Fancy Chicken Salad

Reviewed: May 24, 2004
Good one!!! Better than expected....fresh dill out of the garden lent a distinctive flavor, and this group just loves anything with feta!

Baked Potato Soup I

Reviewed: Apr. 21, 2004
Tasty, but a bit heavy for our taste. A good use for an abundance of leftover potatoes, though.

Cream of Cauliflower Soup I

Reviewed: Nov. 25, 2003
We found this to be wonderful with fresh local autumn cauliflower. Did not puree it much the second time...just used a potato masher in the pot a little bit. We liked the texture. Instead of Swiss, I used a cheddar with garlic, just because it's what I had, very successfully. Kids liked it, too!!

Smushed Apples and Sweet Potatoes

Reviewed: Nov. 25, 2003
I found this recipe delightful, light but flavorful...and not too overbearing. A good choice trying to get veggies into kids. I topped it with pecans (maybe too many but I love them) but probably wouldn't bother next time.

Spicy Peach-Glazed Pork Chops

Reviewed: Sep. 28, 2003
Very good. I paired it with a fresh peach salsa, which was terriffic. Would not cook for 8 minutes per side (step 3) unless they're incredibly thick. I did 3 min. with somewhat thick chops and it was just right.

Tortellini Salad I

Reviewed: Sep. 28, 2003
Very good. Well worth it to purchase a high quality fresh or fresh-frozen tortellini, to avoid that heavy & doughey quality that sometimes makes tortellini salads objectionable.
