Cucumber Tomato Salad with Zucchini and Black Olives in Lemon Balsamic Vinaigrette

Reviewed: Sep. 7, 2010
I really enjoyed this salad as a use for garden veggies! The dressing was nice and flavorful but not too radical - I did think it was a bit much, so i cut it in half. The second day I added tortellini to the leftovers - they were gone before I got any. I will definitely make this one again.

Oven-Fried Catfish

Reviewed: Sep. 1, 2010
I loved this! I love southern fried catfish, but I cannot get it where I live and I hate frying fish at home. This was the perfect remedy for my craving. I used hot hungarian paprika, added 1/2 tsp of dry coleman's mustard and no salt to the corn meal. Perfect. I'll be trying this on other fish when I cant get catfish!

Eggplant Parmesan II

Reviewed: Sep. 1, 2010
Thanks for the winner! I chose to salt the eggplant slices ahead of time to draw the water out, because I like the flavor and texture better. I used part spaghetti sauce and part of Bud's tomato gravy from this site. I also tossed in fresh basil instead of dried and soem fresh spinach. What a great way to use up tons of veggies from my garden last night!

Lemon Lavender Avocado Loaf

Reviewed: Aug. 23, 2010
Very interesting. I love cooking with lavendar, and after reading all the other reviews decided to add a little bit more to the bread - it was too much. Lavendar can be overpowering, so try it first with only what the recipe calls for. Otherwise this was a winner and I will make it again.

Reviewed: Aug. 21, 2010

Seafood Stuffed Avocados

Reviewed: Aug. 21, 2010
After one bite of this, it was requested again for dinner tonight, so i think it's a winner. I used shrimp only, added the avocado back in, and tomatoes/red onions per another reviewer. I also added a splash of lime juice because I love lime on avocado and shrimp. I doubt I'll make it again tonight, but I will make this again!

Cindy's Awesome Clam Chowder

Reviewed: Aug. 19, 2010
I've been wanting to try this for ages, but couldn't find leek soup. I've had all of the other ingredients ready to go. I finally found dry potato leek soup and figured that was good enough. It was. Delicious! I added 2 stalks of finely chopped celery, and used 1/2 qt of half-and-half with 1/2 qt of skim milk sicne my tummy can't take all the cream. Thanks for a wonderful soup, I will make it again!

Braised Lamb Shanks

Reviewed: Aug. 17, 2010
I can't speak highly enough of this. What a nice change from mint jelly or rosemary! Everyone at the table loved it, even those who were not (previously) lamb fans. I did cut down the vinegar a bit per other reviewer's recommendations. This has already been requested for hunting season with venison, and I know that it will be a big hit.

Mini Corncakes with Basil, Avocado Spread and Smoked Salmon

Reviewed: Aug. 11, 2010
I enjoyed this, but I think that it could be improved on. Next time I think having another texture would be great - some finely chopped red onions or shallots would really set it off I think, and perhaps some rough ground pepper on top.

Rosemary Chicken on Navy Bean, Cheddar and Arugula Salad

Reviewed: Aug. 10, 2010
This was a really nice dinner. I had turkey breast cutlets on hand and used those. Other than that, I added a few slices of red onions that I had leftover. It was a meal that I will definitely eat again - thanks!

True Blue Custard Crunch Pie

Reviewed: Aug. 10, 2010
How wonderful! I have a love hate relationship with blueberry pie, in that I love it, but it's so sweet that I can rarely eat more than a few bites. Not this pie. I loved it, and am looking forward to eating it all week.

Grandpa's Tomato Gravy

Reviewed: Jul. 14, 2010
There's something really timeless about tomato gravy which is not the same thing as marinara sauce. The flavors meld together with the long simmer and it's wonderful. I personally like to use the diced fire roasted tomatoes in this sauce. Wonderful and simple. Thanks Bud!

Scalloped Potatoes and Onions

Reviewed: Jul. 13, 2010
I was skeptical, but glad I tried it. I've never made scalloped poatoes without tons of cheese and a million calories. I did use nayonnaise (soy based mayo sub since I am allerica to mayo) and it turned out nicely. Thanks!

Teriyaki Venison

Reviewed: Jul. 8, 2010
This is such a simple recipe and so good. I don't eat venison, but I cook it alot, and this recipe stands out as simple, requested often and no-fail. I would make sure not to use a really thick teriyaki sauce, nor one that is too sweet. But if you have a good teriyaki marinade, and a nice flavorful cajun/creole spice blend this is a wonderful way to have a little sweet, a little spicy...I think that it would also be good on goose or other dark game meat.

Lime Chicken Soft Tacos

Reviewed: Jul. 7, 2010
These were nice and refreshing on a scorching hot day. I had key limes on hand so I used three of those, and was out of green onions so I used sliced red onions sauteed with the chicken. Mine did not need 30 minutes of cooking time though - more like 15 with the chicken cut small. Served on whole wheat tortillas and loved them.

Blueberry Crumb Bars

Reviewed: Jul. 6, 2010
I loved these. I had blueberries and cherries on hand, so I mixed them together. I did follow another reviewer's suggestion to add a little vanilla and water to half the crust so that the bottom was a little more solid and less crumbly than the top. I will definitely make these again. Quick, easy and delicious!

Buffalo Chicken Burgers with Blue Cheese Dressing

Reviewed: Jul. 6, 2010
I really liked these! We ended up cooking them on the stovetop, but grilling would have been fantastic. Th only thing i changed was to add diced red onion and the celery inside of the burgers. I'll definitely make these again.

Party-Size Greek Couscous Salad

Reviewed: Jun. 27, 2010
I think that I would have liked this better had I made it with plain couscous. I made a small batch using just one box, and restaurant greek dressing from AR's site. The flavors were just a little strong and didn't mix right. I would definitely try again with plain couscous though. Thanks!

Watermelon Lemonade

Reviewed: Jun. 26, 2010
I liked this a lot, I did not however strain it, I i really pureed the mess out of it. My melon was very sweet, so i cut back the sugar a bit. Combined with a nice spiced rum this also made a lovely adult beverage :)
