Grammy's Calamari Salad

Reviewed: Mar. 25, 2008
Nice recipe and great as an appetizer. I added cut up shrimp to mine. I steamed the calamari about 7-9 mins. Steaming is a gentler way of cooking and it makes it harder to overcook, which you don't want to do. Put some fresh bay leaves and the peel of 2 lemons in the water your steaming over. Cover and cook for several minutes, stirring often. Dress the calamari when it's still hot then chill so flavors meld. Remove from fridge alittle before you eat it and re-toss in dressing.

Manicotti Shells

Reviewed: Dec. 16, 2007
Quick and easy. I did change a couple of things. I used seltzer instead of water. After everything was mixed, I then ran the mixture through a seive and refrigerated for an hour. I used vegetable spray instead of butter in the fry pan. A couple minutes on each side at low heat is all it takes.

Lemon Herbed Salmon

Reviewed: Mar. 19, 2008
I would give this 6 stars if I could. I enjoy eating salmon at least once a week. This is a great way to make it. Very tasty and oh so easy. I used Panko for the bread crumbs, extra virgin olive oil instead of butter and broiled for a few minutes after baking for some crunch. This is some recipe. Thank you so much. I don't think I will make salmon any other way now!

Onion Barley Casserole

Reviewed: Oct. 8, 2007
All I can say is awesome. This recipe is quick to prepare, hearty and most of all, tastes great! I used shitake mushrooms and added 2 cloves of garlic and WOW, I should have made double the recipe. Tip, watch and stir mixture occasionaaly, mine took about 35-40 minutes, not 50. I will continue to make this. Thanks so much for the recipe.

Old-Fashioned Peach Cream Pie

Reviewed: Aug. 2, 2009
I made mine with peaches, strawberries abd blueberries. It was fantastic. The sour cream gives it a great tang. I did however used half of the butter the recipe called for in the topping and it still was great. Sure to please if you're looking for a great fruit pie recipe. I'm sure it'll work with any sort of fruit you have on hand. WOW.

Blueberry Bread I

Reviewed: Jun. 9, 2009
This was very good and quite moist. Don't forget to coat the blueberries with flour so they don't sink to the bottom of the loaf.

Bulgur Wheat with Dried Cranberries

Reviewed: Feb. 13, 2008
Very good recipe. This can be one of those dishes that is different everytime you make it, depending on what's in the fridge. Next time I'll try pine nuts and basil. It seemed alot like a short grain rice or a couscous. Very versatile.

PHILLY Maple Nut Cheese Ball

Reviewed: Mar. 22, 2009
Really good. I mixed the syrup in with the cheese. Go easy on the syrup however, more than the recipe calls for would make it too sweet. I shaped mine like a log and it went fast.

Poached Salmon I

Reviewed: May 13, 2008
The salmon does stay moist but I think it lacked an abundance of flavor. It's a good base recipe, but needs tweaking.

Fig and Ricotta Crostini

Reviewed: Mar. 24, 2008
Elegant and impressive. I made these for a family dinner and there were none leftover. I followed the recipe exactly except I put the figs into a processer and pulsed until chopped fine. It made this so much easier to eat these two bite crostinis. Use good balsamic vinegar, it makes all the difference. LOVED this recipe.

Maple Cookies

Reviewed: Apr. 25, 2011
OUTSTANDING. Prepared them exactly as written. Use REAL maple syrup, i.e. not Log Cabin or the sort. They were so light and fluffy. Also, don't believe the others who thought they weren't sweet enough. They are just right in sweetness. Again, OUTSTANDING!

Parmesan chesse IS NOT vegetarian. Not because of dairy but because of enzymes.

Sweet Potato Gnocchi

Reviewed: Sep. 27, 2009
As a home chef, there's nothing worse than spending money and a good chuck of your time, to have a recipe turnout like this. This recipe as written, has absolutely no taste. I even grated fresh nutmeg and used fresh sage and still nothing. Oh well.

Stuffed Artichokes

Reviewed: Sep. 25, 2008
Just like the ones my nana made while I was little. I made my own bread crumbs from some day old. That's all it takes to make it off the hook.

Barley Casserole

Reviewed: Dec. 10, 2007
Hearty and satisfying. It needs more salt and garlic, however. A great side dish.

Quinoa Side Dish

Reviewed: Oct. 9, 2007
This is a great recipe. The flavors meld very well together. I didn't saute my garlic and onion first and glad I didn't. The onion gave the dish a mild crunch. The heat from the hot quinoa cooks the garlic and onion anyway. The combination of textures is what makes this recipe great. I did however make this with no-chik stock (vegetarian) and also put lemon zest instead of lemon juice. The zest gave it a nice look and also the freshness that lemon is used for. I will make this over and over again.
