Buttermilk Pound Cake II

Reviewed: Sep. 2, 2007
I love this recipe! This pound cake is wonderfully moist all by itself and does not require any toppings. I leave out the lemon extract and must be very careful with the baking time - in my mother's oven it was done in just over an hour.

Slammin' Salmon

Reviewed: Nov. 7, 2007
To make the topping a little more substantial, I added some sliced mushrooms. Sauté them first in a bit of olive oil, garlic, green onions and a bit of salt/seasonings - not from the quantities of the original recipe - and drain the liquid before adding the mushrooms to the salmon as a topping.

Chocolate Cookie Buttercream Frosting

Reviewed: Nov. 7, 2007
Quick, easy, and flexible. Don't be afraid to adjust the milk to get it just right.

Peanut Butter Brownies I

Reviewed: Nov. 7, 2007
Depending on how "nutty" you want them, and if you decide to go with a chunky/extra chunky peanut butter, you can leave out the loose nuts. If you would rather a non-chunky-nutty brownie, add 1/4 cup of creamy PB and substitute 1/2 tsp of vanilla extract for almond extract.

Renaissance Stuffed Mushrooms

Reviewed: Nov. 19, 2007
I just love this recipe! You can play with the spices and use different kinds of cheeses. I liked the variation with crushed garlic instead of minced. If you end up with too much liquid from the mushroom, add a bit of seasoned bread crumbs.

Black Chocolate Cake

Reviewed: Nov. 19, 2007
This is a very good chocolate cake recipe for a 2 and 3 layer German chocolate cake. It is also delicious with vanilla butter-cream frosting... but then again, what isn't? :)

Reviewed: Nov. 21, 2007
This recipe is very good and the cookies work great served warm as the "base" for a peanut butter & chocolate ice cream sundae.

Indian Chicken Curry I

Reviewed: Nov. 26, 2007
I would re-name this recipe and agree that this recipe was not quite the curry dish I hoped it would be. It is delicious as is and makes for great left-overs, but I would not classify it as curry.

Blue Cheese Stuffed Mushrooms with Grilled Onions

Reviewed: Dec. 6, 2007
These are amazing! Also works very well with green onions and garlic of course. I could eat these by the dozen!

Blue Cheese Salad

Reviewed: Dec. 6, 2007
I liked it better without the dill (it's just not my flavor...) and put the egg on the side for those watching their cholesterol. Added some walnuts and craisins.

Feta Cheese Mashed Potatoes

Reviewed: Dec. 9, 2007
Try it with blue cheese crumbles! Of course you have to be a blue cheese fan but it is just delicious. I also added green onions.

Herbed Marinated Lamb Chops

Reviewed: Dec. 9, 2007
I have never prepared lamb with this family of ingredients and wasn't sure we would like it. It is a very quick easy recipe but I agree that it is better to marinate it longer. I made it the night before and it was delicious - not too salty.

Blackened Salmon Fillets

Reviewed: Dec. 9, 2007
My family LOVED this dish! My mother, the home economics teacher, even requested the recipe! I served it over individual mixed greens salad, but everyone wanted more of it as their entree. It will steal the show!

Buttermilk Pound Cake

Reviewed: Dec. 9, 2007
I was in search for the perfect buttermilk pound cake and have been trying many recipes. This one was good but did not make the top of the list. It needed something with it - which if you're planning to serve it with some fruit, ice cream, or chocolaty sauce you should be fine.

Spinach-Stuffed Flounder with Mushrooms and Feta

Reviewed: Nov. 20, 2008
I agree with needing a lot more cheese which is not surprising coming from me. I also added garlic and some scalions which blend in very well with the spinach. This recipe works with blue cheese as well.

Chicken Kiev

Reviewed: Jan. 22, 2009
It definitely needs something – some kind of sauce with it. The breading could use a little kick as well. Is there such a thing as strongly bland? Perhaps my expectations were too high. I’m going to have to play with it a little more before I can say I would serve it to guests.

Spanish Cod

Reviewed: Jan. 22, 2009
This was just great! We had it with garlic mashed potatoes which went very well with the sauce. My husband who doesn’t like olives (at all) liked the flavor very much. The olives are not overpowering but add a bit of a salty taste. I can’t wait to try this sauce on chicken and even other types of fish.

Fraser Shortbread

Reviewed: Aug. 20, 2010
I went into this hoping to adopt it as our Fraser shortbread recipe but it wasn't quite what we expected. It was very hard and tasteless. Disappointing.

Butternut and Acorn Squash Soup

Reviewed: Nov. 24, 2010
I didn't try the "full sugar" recipe because these squashes are already very sweet. I used very little brown sugar and added a bit of nutmeg and red pepper as suggested by other reviewers. Very good but plan to play with it. More to follow soon. Update - Definitely staying with the small amount of brown sugar and all the cream cheese, but doubled the onion, added a bit more salt/pepper and garnished with shredded cheddar cheese and scallions. The cheddar melts in the soup and makes it less "graceful" to eat but is so worth it!
