Clark's Quiche

Reviewed: Mar. 3, 2012
Made this exactly as written but with a little extra bacon. It was very good --- I wouldn't say unbelievable though. And for the amount of prep time I'm not sure it was worth it. There are a lot of good quiches that you can make in 1/4 of the time.

Baked Shrimp with Feta and Tomato

Reviewed: Jan. 24, 2012
Absolutely delicious and I am P-I-C-K-Y. Not a picky eater so much but more like a food snob - I do not like a lot of processed food, casseroles, etc. I like fresh, easy and delicious. This is awesome and I followed the recipe to a T! Very easy and quick to make if you use bagged, peeled and deveined shrimp. I also served over orzo pasta and it was P-E-R-F-E-C-T! For the people who said it was runny or had too much sauce...yes it was runny but we felt all that good thin sauce was just excellent with the orzo. Served in a bowl, but don't throw that away - it is what makes it! I also think you could use vodka if you didn't have vermouth.

Mouse's Macaroni and Cheese

Reviewed: Jan. 23, 2012
I made this Jan 2012 exactly as written except I substituted 4 oz. sharp cheddar and 4 oz. American cheese for the 8 oz. American cheese. I also didn't have mustard powder so I put in a couple tsp. yellow mustard. Like another review said it was really soupy but then the macaroni soaked up all the soup and it came out of the oven NOT soupy at all and the kind of dried up after refrigerating and re-heating. I would make again b/c it was good but would also like to try some other recipes on this site to see if there was one that I would rate 5 stars!

Delicious Ham and Potato Soup

Reviewed: Jan. 23, 2012
I reduced this recipe to make 6 servings which still would not fit in my small LeCreuset. Used almost 2 cans of chicken broth instead of the water and bouillion. Added carrots. Also put in about 25% more potatoes. Used cornstarch instead of flour to make it gluten free. Made this on 1/26/12

Pork and Shrimp Pancit

Reviewed: Jan. 17, 2012
Didn't have oyster sauce so just added lots of soy sauce. Also added some shredded cabbage and grated carrots and I used green cabbage instead of bok choy. Also had no chicken so did all shrimp. My husband stirred some peanut butter into his bowl and added some peanuts on the top. Excellent recipe! Thanks!

Brown Sugar Smokies

Reviewed: Jan. 6, 2012
OMG! My #1 top appetizer! I made these for Christmas 2011 when everyone was coming over (in addition to cheese dip, Costco Spinach/Artichoke dip and Trader Joe Jalapeno cheese) I used two packages of Little Smokies and two pkgs of all natural bacon. Cut each bacon strip in 3 pieces. Didn't really take that long to wrap. Did this the night before and put them all in a big plastic bag with a bunch of brown sugar and put all that in a bowl and refrigerated overnight. Cooked the next day with the whole contents of the plastic bag plus extra brown sugar. I did not have to turn them. They went fast!

Becca's Custom Turkey Shepherd's Pie

Reviewed: Dec. 2, 2011
The only thing I really changed is that I added a couple TBSP of flour instead of only one and then added about a cup of chicken broth to make some gravy with the meat and vegetables. That made it really amazing as I looked like it was going to be a little dry. I changed the veggies a bit and used carrots, onions, celery, green beans and peas.

Lentil Soup with Lemon

Reviewed: Nov. 8, 2011
Yum! I had to use green lentils (actually they just said "lentils" but they were more greenish tan in color so definitely not red. Turned out great! I forgot to put in the lemon juice but we still loved it. Bumped up the chili powder and the cumin by about 25% was the only change I made. Nov 8 2011
