Baked Parmesan Perch

Reviewed: Apr. 15, 2008
I didn't like this recipe at all. When the fish was done, it looked heavily spiced, but it tasted surprisingly bland. Rather than being crisp after baking, it was crumbly. Before eating the fish, I sprinkled some garlic powder on each piece simply to give the dish a bit more pizzaz. Sorry. This recipe was just not for me. :(

To Die For Garlic Feta Pate

Reviewed: Apr. 5, 2008
OMG! This is to die for. I made it exactly as you said. The chives were freshly cut from my garden. I went a bit heavy on the chives and the hot sauce (I use Louisiana Crystal). The only thing *seriously* wrong with this recipe is that I wanted to eat too much of it. :) I can't wait for my husband to come home and try it.

Cabbage Jambalaya

Reviewed: Dec. 28, 2007
I'll give it five stars, but I changed almost everything after reading the reviews of others. I substituted knockwurst for smoked sausage. I added 4 cloves of garlic instead of 1. I used a 28 oz. can of whole tomatoes, chopped in their juice. I omitted garlic salt and instead used 1 tsp salt, 1/4 tsp pepper, 1 jalapeno pepper (finely minced), 1 tsp oregano, and 1/2 tsp thyme. I browned the onions, garlic and celery in some oil before adding the meat. I browned the ground beef and knockwurst before adding the rest of the ingredients. I brought the mixture to a boil, lowered the flame, and simmered the mixture covered for 25 minutes. When I was done, my daughter and husband gave this dish high praise by eating their entire portions. My daughter is a picky eater who at first tried to pull out pieces of the cabbage. When I next look up, her plate was empty! :D

Glazed Meatloaf I

Reviewed: Dec. 7, 2007
I changed the recipe a bit. It came out fabulous. I used 1 Tbsp of lemon juice for the glaze and none for the meat. I put in one whole onion (chopped), 1 clove garlic (minced), 1/2 cup fresh parsley (chopped), 1 tsp salt, and 1/2 tsp pepper. I omitted the bouillon granules. My husband and I loved this recipe. I was surprised that my husband did because I used the 1/3 cup brown sugar, and he would usually complain if I add anything sweet to meat dishes. There were no complaints tonight; only praise. :-)

Cranberry Sauce I

Reviewed: Nov. 21, 2007
Loved this recipe! It's a bit more fun to make then the boring old sugar-water-cranberry recipe. It's easy and comes out very spicy and good. I took the suggestions of others and did 1/2 cup sugar, 1/2 cup light brown sugar thing. I added 1/4 tsp cinnamon and 1 tsp orange zest to the orange juice before adding the cranberries. I cooked the concoction for a full 10 minutes after it came to a boil. I poured it into a nice white serving dish. It set up immediately upon cooling. I can't wait to serve it for Thanksgiving. Thanks, Toni!

Jasmine's Brussels Sprouts

Reviewed: Nov. 19, 2007
I don't eat bacon so I substituted kosher hot dogs, sliced diagonally. I cut back on the salt and pepper unintentionally, but it came out delicious. It was a hit!

Salmon Loaf

Reviewed: Nov. 5, 2007
I think this recipe tastes great. I added 1 chopped spring onion and a few chopped celery leaves. However, even though I let the top get crispy and brown, the inside was mooshy. I didn't like that. :-(

Brussels Sprouts with Pecans

Reviewed: Nov. 5, 2007
My husband and I liked this recipe very much. My son didn't - but he doesn't like brussel sprouts. The next time I make this dish, I'll probably add a bit more butter, but otherwise it was perfect.

Holiday Chicken Salad

Reviewed: Oct. 29, 2007
What a wondrous combination of ingredients. This chicken salad shouts "Party!" The only change I made was to use plain salt instead of seasoned salt (because I had no seasoned salt). It's wonderful and so easy to make. This recipe is sure to impress your family and friends!

Roasted Cauliflower Soup

Reviewed: Oct. 28, 2007
My husband and I found this recipe extremely good. I did what someone else suggested and cut the salt in half. I wouldn't make any other changes to it. It's perfect the way it is!

Summer Vegetable Salad

Reviewed: Oct. 27, 2007
This was great! What I did that was different from the recipe. As someone previously suggested, I cut the ingredients in the salad dressing in half. That amount was perferct for the amoutn of fresh veggies in the salad. I used olive oil instead of vegetable oil...which I usually do in all fresh salads which include tomatoes. I didn't have cherry tomatoes, so I cut up fresh tomatoes to equal once cup. I stirred that dressing really well to incorporate the garlic flavor before I added it to the mixed fresh vegetables. The results were super-yummy!

Lima Bean Medley

Reviewed: Oct. 7, 2007
I'll give this the highest rating for several reasons. The first is that I was able to mostly use all the produce (basil, tomatoes, corn, lima beas, onions) that I *just* brought home from a farm marke. The second is that there was no funky taste that I usually associate with lima beans. The third is that it is both healthy and good. The only changes I made were to add just a tiny bit of water to the veggies so they would steam and not burn. I also let it simmmer for an extra 5 minutes because some of my lima beans were very large. No uniform size lima beans when they come fresh from the farm! :-) Thanks for the recipe.

Plum Tomatoes with Balsamic Vinaigrette

Reviewed: Sep. 17, 2007
I liked this recipe a lot because I love the taste of balsamic vinegar. However, the rest of my family complained about the prominent vinegar taste. I made this recipe as written except for the basil.

Fresh Fig Cookies

Reviewed: Sep. 9, 2007
This recipe came out perfectly as it was written. I baked the cookies for exactly 16 minutes, taking them out of the oven when they were lightly browned on the outside. I cooled them on the tray for a few minutes before removing them to cool further. They were delicious, soft on the inside, crunchy on the outside - just like I like them! This is a keeper recipe and a fun thing to do with fresh figs. I mean, after all, how many people know a fig recipe for cookies?!

Corn Tomato Salad

Reviewed: Aug. 10, 2007
This was surprisingly good! I was amazed that my family liked it. I thought they wouldn't be too crazy about the heavyhandedness of the basalmic vinegar. I think the key to making this salad work well is to use only the best farm-fresh vegetables and to mix the minced garlic, basalmic vinegar and olive oil well before mixing it with the vegetables. I used a green pepper as I didn't have a red one. I definitely will make this recipe again - especially when I have an excess bounty of fresh corn on the cob.

Erin's Indonesian Chicken

Reviewed: Jul. 23, 2007
Neither my family nor I liked this recipe. We just didn't care for the taste of the peanut sauce. I did substitute chili powder for chili paste as someone else suggested, but otherwise followed the recipe as directed.

London Broil

Reviewed: Jul. 15, 2007
This was absolutely scrumptious! I rarely charcoal grill beef because I don't know how to do it properly, but this cut came out so tender. My family and I loved it. Here are the changes I made to the original recipe - skipped the MSG completely, used salt instead of seasoned salt, used pepper instead of lemon pepper, used 1 Tbsp parsley flakes instead of 4 tsp. chopped fresh parskey, used 1/2 tsp. dried tarragon (that was from my garden!) and 2 tsp. red wine vinegar instead of tarragon vinegar. I marinated the steak in a Ziplock bag for 3 hours then tossed it onto the grill. It was extremely juicy, too. I grilled it to medium (no blood, but still a bit red inside).

Sesame Green Beans

Reviewed: Jul. 15, 2007
It was a bit of trouble to make. I added the garlic and red pepper flakes as others suggested, but I particularly did not like the part when the sesame seeds went flying through the air!

Colorful Bulgur Salad

Reviewed: Jul. 15, 2007
It's colorful and chock full of healthy ingredients. However, it lacked a certain tastiness. I'm not likely to make this recipe again.

Blueberry Zucchini Bread

Reviewed: Jul. 15, 2007
Very good recipe with no changes at all. I made these into 22 muffins, baking them for 30 minutes - until the tops were lightly browned. They came out perfectly. When properly cooled, the top was crunchy and the inside texture was very nice. Okay. So I cheated and ate the first one warm and fresh out of the oven. I like the idea of another person who suggested adding a pinch of nutmeg to this recipe. I think I'll do that the next time. In the meantime, I'll simply eat all the ones I've already made...or perhaps I'll share them. There's no way anyone is going to know there is zucchini in these muffins unless they spy a speck of green here and there! :-)
