Nutty Stuffed Mushrooms

Reviewed: Jun. 16, 2007
Got home and realized I forgot the pecans. I had walnuts in the cupboard so used those. I added a little extra virgin olive oil to the dry ingredients and used a little in the onion/mushroom sweat, along with butter. I then topped with a little more reggiano parm and baked. Fantastic!

Creamy Beet With Dill Soup

Reviewed: Dec. 15, 2007
Quite tasty with just a little kick from the cayenne. I garnished with a little chopped cucumber. I may use this recipe as a base, the jack it up, I'm already thinking of ideas for it. I think I can make it 5 star. By all means everyone should make this recipe, it's pretty darn good.

Steamed Zucchini

Reviewed: Feb. 17, 2008
Tried this recipe today but added some parmesan reggiano like others. I also used both yellow and green squash. It was fab. A word of caution, let the squash drain before dressing it or it will be watered down.

Zesty Lemon Potatoes

Reviewed: Mar. 7, 2008
This recipe was awesome, but I did make a change. I used dried parsley because the store was out of fresh. I also added a couple T's of fresh chopped rosemary to it. I made the dressing the night before so the flavors would meld. I got great reviews for this one.

Chicken Stew with Dumplings

Reviewed: Jan. 5, 2009
If made to a T this indeed will be to soupy. Thankfully I read thr reviews that warned of this and thickened to a nice gravy style just before adding the dumplings. I will make this again but add some minced fresh garlic. This is a fine tasty recipe. the only other change I made was half n half water/chicken stock.

Sweet Potato Casserole I

Reviewed: Apr. 11, 2009
OMG!!!, this is a good recipe. I had the good sense to cut the white sugar down to 1/3 cup instead of 1/2 cup. I wish I'd cut the brown sugar to 3/4 cup instead of 1 cup. but OMG!!!, this is a good recipe. I also used honey roasted pecans. 5 stars the way it is, 6 stars if cut back on the sugar a little. Ohyea, I did use the coconut.

Chicken Marsala

Reviewed: Oct. 25, 2009
I know there are a ton of reviews on this but just had to add my own twist to the recipe. First off I try to do as much the day before in prep as I can, it makes things much easier when I go to cook the dish. I doubled the mushrooms and sauteed them in butter/oil/salt n pepper, just till they released their juices. I also carmelized an onion. I put this away in a tupperware in the fridge. I then took my chicken breasts and thinned them so I had half chicken breasts. I then put those away. The day of, I floured the chicken breast halves as the recipe called for using more oregeno and sauteed them on one side. (I had to do it in batches) I then put the chicken back in the pot raw flour side down, and added the mushrooms and onion with their juice. I added a little more marsala, and a little more sherry to make plenty of sauce. I use a good drinking sherry, not cooking sherry. I braised for 20 minutes stirring twice. I was outstanding. I served this over fettuccine dressed with olive oil/butter/salt n pepper/parsley.

Sausage and Rice Stuffed Peppers

Reviewed: Dec. 29, 2009
NO short cuts here folks. This is a great recipe but you DO have to blanch the peppers. I read reviews who said the peppers split on them, and reviews where they omitted blanching because of it. The reason the peppers split on those folks is because they lost track of time and let them boil to long. The added bonus is if you then shock them in cold water, you can peel them. I attemted to omit the blanch step as well and the peppers were raw. I corrected the problem with alot of extra effort. I didn't want to bake x2 to soften the peppers in the oven. This is a great recipe if you pay attention to the peppers and the time, in the blanch process. NO SHORTCUTS!

pistachio crusted asparagus

Reviewed: Dec. 29, 2009
This is outstanding. Just make sure you grind the pistachios down to fine or they will never stick. Now I'm gonna try to find a way to combine this recipe with the orange glazed asparagus, using a thick orange glaze instead of eggwash.

Lemon Carrots and Rutabaga

Reviewed: Feb. 11, 2010
VERY good. The only thing I'll do different next time is reduce the glaze a little with more lemon. (to make it a little thicker and brown the butter)

The Best Stuffed Mushrooms

Reviewed: Oct. 1, 2010
Outstanding, I added some pimentos on top just for the look. See the picture I added. The red under it is just a red silicone pad to rest the hot dish on.

Beef Stroganoff III

Reviewed: Nov. 5, 2010
Killer recipe. I used fresh, sauteed baby bellas that I double cut. (twice as thick as precut) I sauteed them the day before in butter n oil, salt n pepper with a whisper of fresh grated nutmeg. I packed 'em up and into the fridge just waiting for the main event the next day. I also used fresh pasta instead of dried. A little parsley garnish at the end and it was fab.
