Zinfandel Salad Or Slaw Dressing

Reviewed: Sep. 2, 2009
Always a plus to find a dressing this good and quick that I can make myself instead of buying bottled...I think I followed the recipe's proportions, but this turned out to be a little thin for my preference. Easily remedied by adding a bit more mayo. Taste was great - and I had a delicious mixed salad of romaine, radicchio, spinach, and feta cheese.

Shrimp with Mustard Sauce

Reviewed: Sep. 2, 2009
What a wonderful quick dinner with a gourmet taste! Unfortunately, I only had cooked shrimp in the freezer so modified the recipe slightly to try to avoid that "rubbery" texture. I sauteed green onions with finely diced orange pepper and then added chopped, peeled Roma tomato. Let that simmer with the wine/mustard for a few minutes and then just added the shrimp at the last minute to heat through. Excellent flavor although I do agree that it needs more sauce to be served over pasta or rice. I am anxious to try this recipe again with raw shrimp.

Creamy Cabbage with Apples and Bacon

Reviewed: Aug. 31, 2009
The complexity of flavors makes this a special dish. We felt the first hint of fall in the air today, so I thought this would be an appropriate supper. I'll also make this again - it would be excellent even without the sour cream added.

Orange Roughy with Citrus Sauce

Reviewed: Aug. 27, 2009
Perfectly delicious! I can honestly say that this preparation is one of the best I've ever had of orange roughy. The only addition I made was to add about 1/2 tsp of white sugar to the citrus juices. The fish was fantastic served along side a simple turmeric basmati rice pilaf with dried cranberries and green onions. Soaking the fish in milk before frying took away ALL of the fishy taste.

Ground Beef Stroganoff

Reviewed: Aug. 26, 2009
The flavor of this was excellent (the only additional seasoning I added was a few shakes of worcestershire sauce). But I (like other reviewers) had the experience of the end product being too greasy for my preferences-so for that reason will probably not follow this recipe again but will go back to stroganoff thickened with flour instead of the mayo ingredient.

Pico de Gallo Chicken Quesadillas

Reviewed: Aug. 23, 2009
Very tasty and a quick & filling lunch. I used leftover grilled chicken (Key West Chicken) and didn't add any of the tomato pico to the quesadilla as I was using ripe-from-the-garden tomatoes and was afraid they would be too juicy and make the tortilla soggy as other reviewers noted.

Cauliflower Lettuce Salad

Reviewed: Aug. 22, 2009
I didn't plan ahead so when I found this recipe, there wasn't time to layer and refrigerate overnite. I just assembled all of the salad ingredients, mixed the mayo, sugar & parmesan and then tossed together. I used green peas and the lettuce I had on hand included carrots and purple cabbage - so they added some extra "layers." This is high up on my list of favorite salads and a taste I haven't had for quite a while.

Key West Chicken

Reviewed: Aug. 20, 2009
I upped the amount of lime juice, but still didn't think it was as noticeable as I would have liked. I think the key is maybe to decrease the amount of soy sauce? I'm going to try that next time and increase the amount of honey, also. I love all of the flavors in this marinade, so I hope to be able to perfect it according to my taste.

Moroccan Mashed Potatoes

Reviewed: Aug. 20, 2009
Enjoyed the taste - I'm a fan of turmeric and cumin - but I like "traditional" mashed potatoes too much and so I'll probably stick with those in the future. Thanks for the taste adventure.

Roasted Balsamic Cauliflower

Reviewed: Aug. 16, 2009
I really think people who don't particularly like cauliflower would like this recipe...the balsamic vinegar and the caramelization from roasting add a nice sweetness. Allow about an hour to marinate for maximum flavor and don't skip the step of lining your baking sheet with foil!

Ultimate Baked Beans

Reviewed: Aug. 15, 2009
These were really wonderful - I even received a compliment from someone who said they were the best beans he ever ate. Even though I used a different combination of beans (pork & beans, great northern beans, black beans), finely diced red bell pepper, and omitted the bacon, I followed the seasoning proportions with the exception of using a combination of ketchup, honey- chipotle barbeque sauce, and molasses instead of only ketchup.

Chocolate Chip Cake Bars

Reviewed: Aug. 13, 2009
Not only are these super convenient to make and delicious, clean-up is a breeze! I also used butter cake mix (Duncan Hines Butter Recipe Golden) and mini-chocolate chips for a slightly different look. Instead of the drizzle, I just sprinkled more chips on top of the hot bars and let them melt.

Paul's Pumpkin Bars

Reviewed: Aug. 13, 2009
I baked this using an 11X7 pan and a square baking dish as I didn't have a jelly roll pan OR a 13X9 available. The bars were more cake-like than what the recipe probably intended, but very good. I added about 1/2 tsp allspice in addition to the cinnamon.

Green Beans and Potatoes

Reviewed: Aug. 12, 2009
The changes I made to this recipe were that I sauteed the potatoes briefly in butter along with some chopped red onion before adding the broth, seasonings and fresh green beans. I also added some kielbasa chunks to make this a one-skillet meal. Didn't find it necessary to add the cornstarch.

Peanut Butter Fruit Dip

Reviewed: Aug. 11, 2009
Turns a plain apple into a fantastic snack. Didn't use the whipped topping and just used the cinnamon as a topper ingredient. But I can't decide if I like this better with apples or grapes... if you don't have vanilla yogurt, you can use plain unsweetened with some brown sugar and vanilla added. A dollop on a bowl of grapes makes a quick and tasty salad!
