Eggs Benedict

Reviewed: Feb. 14, 2010
Eggs Benedict is my husband's favorite, and he loves this recipe (with the lemon juice measured in TSP, not TBL). And it takes me only about 10-15 minutes to make, not the 30 that the recipe says. I try to do as much simultaneously as I can, so all the pieces stay hot.

Garlic Mashed Potatoes

Reviewed: Feb. 2, 2010
This had a weird consistency for mashed potatoes and no garlic flavor - and I doubled the amount of garlic that the recipe called for!

Welsh Rabbit (Rarebit)

Reviewed: Jan. 18, 2010
I made this as a fondue (added a little more cheese and some flour to thicken it) and had English muffin pieces as dippers. It's a keeper!

Szechwan Shrimp

Reviewed: Jan. 13, 2009
With some of the tweaking suggested by others, this can become a 5 star recipe. I used raw rather than cooked shrimp and doubled the amount of sauce, adding an extra tablespoon of soy sauce and leaving out 1 teaspoon of cornstarch. I also replaced the ground ginger with a teaspoon of minced fresh ginger, and added a box of frozen broccoli. It was so good - there were no leftovers!

Creme Brulee

Reviewed: Jan. 6, 2009
I served this for Christmas dinner (following CHEFPEON's directions) and it was a HUGE hit. Next time I will use brownulated brown sugar (my topping clumped a bit). The fact that most of the work was done the day before made for a simple final prep with a giant WOW factor.

All American Roast Beef

Reviewed: Aug. 27, 2008
This was the first time I ever made a beef roast and it turned out great! I added a cup of water as suggested by others. It was moist, juicy and tender. (I did make a rookie mistake of bringing the meat straight from the refrigerator to the oven, so it took a little longer to cook.) This got the highest compliment from our house: an enthustiastic "We can have this again!"

Zesty Barbeque Marinade

Reviewed: Apr. 30, 2008
I followed the recipe exactly. We also did flat iron steaks and they were terrific. The only thing I will do differently is halve or quarter the recipe - this makes a huge amount of marinade!

Chicken Enchiladas

Reviewed: Jan. 28, 2008
I broke my ban on recipes using condensed soup for this one - and it was worth it! I used Pepper Jack cheese for a little extra kick, and these were great.

COLLEGE INN® Tortellini with Turkey and Broccoli

Reviewed: Dec. 5, 2007
This was pretty good but seemed like it needed a 'kick' of something - not sure what. It's a different way to use the holiday leftovers. I will make it again once I figure out what it's missing to make it a 5!

Bavarian Apple Torte

Reviewed: Dec. 5, 2007
What a treat this recipe was! I had apples, eggs and cream cheese I needed to use up and this was a delicious way to do it (and easy, too!)

Old Fashioned Onion Rings

Reviewed: Aug. 8, 2007
These were SO easy to do and fun to make. My only change: The recipe says to slice the onion rings 1/4" thick. These were too small and were overwhelmed by the batter. When I make them the next time I will slice the onions at least 3/4" thick so they don't get lost.

Glazed Corned Beef

Reviewed: May 31, 2007
This was surprisingly good. Next time I will do as others have suggested and cook first in the slow cooker and finish with the glaze in the oven. I will make the glaze again with just the carrots - yummy!

Marie's Easy Slow Cooker Pot Roast

Reviewed: Feb. 28, 2007
The best pot roast, and it keeps getting better each time I make it! I did find it too salty so I didn't season the meat with salt before browning, and I add the vegetables about 1 hour before the meat is done.

Chicken and Shrimp Jambalaya

Reviewed: Feb. 28, 2007
I made this for Mardi Gras. My husband (who claimed before dinner that he wasn't hungry) had three servings because it was just so good!

Great recipe. I added more water and soy sauce, along with snow peas and scallions.
