Boyfriend Bait Beef Stroganoff

Reviewed: May 21, 2007
This is delicious. It's worth trying to use the tenderloin, as the finished product is much classier than stroganoff made with ground beef. I was tempted to replace the shallots with onions, but I'm glad I didn't; shallots give this dish such a rich, distinct flavor. I felt confident serving this dish to guests.

Seattle Macadamia Cookies

Reviewed: Sep. 15, 2008
Great cakey, chewey texture. The macadamia nuts lend a good, salty crunch. I used a bit more espresso powder (1.5 Tablespoons) but that's because I really like the taste of espresso. I cooked them only about 10 minutes, which was perfect. I will make these again.

Jerre's Black Bean and Pork Tenderloin Slow Cooker Chili

Reviewed: May 15, 2012
Fantastic, especially given how easy it is to put together. Threw it in the crock pot in 15 minutes, and had a delicious chili for dinner. I used pinto beans (only 2 cans), because that's what I had, and also, about 30 minutes before eating I added a can of diced green chilis. Gave it a little extra zing. A keeper, thanks!

Chili-Lime Chicken Kabobs

Reviewed: Sep. 2, 2008
Very tasty and very easy. Good for a crowd, and the leftovers go really well on top of a green salad! I'll keep this on hand for the rest of the grilling season.

Baked Pesto Chicken

Reviewed: Nov. 5, 2008
So easy, and so good. This will be a go-to recipe when I need something that's quick to put together. I did marinate the chicken in the pesto for a few hours, and it was really tender and flavorful.

Penne with Spicy Chicken Sausage, Beans, and Greens

Reviewed: Feb. 18, 2009
Yum! Followed recipe exactly (except cut in half to make 2 servings). A keeper! I can't think of anything I would change.

Grilled Portobello with Basil Mayonnaise Sandwich

Reviewed: Aug. 15, 2010
Delicious! Very satisfying on a hot summer night. The only changes I made were 1) to marinade the mushrooms in the vinegar/oil/garlic for 2 hours instead of just brushing it on before grilling. The mushrooms were very flavorful that way, and 2) to add a slight amount of cheese (pick your favorite) onto the mushrooms just before taking off the grill. I loved the mayo, and will look for other ways to use it!

Creamy Mustard and Tarragon Chicken

Reviewed: Sep. 22, 2010
I will make this again. I do think that pounding the chicken breasts flat and adding mushrooms would be good improvements, but, as-is, the recipe is a keeper. FYI, I made the same amount of sauce for half the amount of chicken, and I am glad I did.

Potato Arugula Salad

Reviewed: Sep. 10, 2012
My husband usually avoids potato salad and can't stop talking about how good this one is! A fantastic alternative to a mayo-based potato salad. I live arugula and am always looking for new ways to use it. I made this just as the recipe said, and I would do it that way again. Nice and garlicky. I'd consider adding fresh herbs like mint or rosemary.

My Favorite Beet Salad

Reviewed: Oct. 14, 2012
Delicious! I used baby kale instead of spinach and tossed some toasted pumpkin seeds on top for crunch. Will definitely make this again. Next time, though, I will cut the dressing amount in at least half...this made way too much.

Chicken with Red Grapes And Mushrooms

Reviewed: Oct. 16, 2008
Easy and enjoyable. I used fresh sage instead of dried thyme, and sauteed the sage with the mushrooms. Next time I might use more red wine (or perhaps port wine) to give the sauce a stronger flavor.

Shrimp Marinara

Reviewed: Jul. 14, 2009
I like the idea of simmering the sauce all day in the crock pot. The addition of red pepper flakes was good, too. A good recipe, and a good way to use ingredients that I had on hand. Nothing spectacular, though, and I probably won't make it again.
