Beef Tenderloin With Roasted Shallots

Reviewed: Dec. 16, 2012
I served this at an engagement dinner and it was just delicious! I made the port sauce, roasted the shallots and cooked the bacon (saving some of the grease) 2 days before. I also mixed the flour and butter to have ready and another cup with the additional butter. That made it sooo easy to prepare. I believe I will make this again for Christmas as there were no leftovers!!! Thank you! Great recipe!

King Crab Appetizers

Reviewed: Dec. 16, 2012
These were very good! I used frozen phyllo cups instead of the biscuit dough. I tripled the recipe because I used a big can of "fresh" crab from the seafood department. I made them a week before, put them back in the phyllo cup tray, wrapped with saran and froze. I just popped them in the oven, frozen, and baked about 25 minutes. I also made some with a spinach filling and alternated them on the serving plate for a nice presentation.

Di's Goat Cheese, Sundried Tomato & Rosemary Appetizer

Reviewed: Dec. 8, 2012
I received this recipe from a friend who has been making this for years and we love it. Fresh rosemary is a must and best served with toasted baguette slices. Be sure to take the cheese out of the fridge a few hours prior to serving to be sure it is at room temperature or it will be a crumbly mess. Drizzle with Extra Virgin Olive Oil before serving.

Filet Mignon with Rich Balsamic Glaze

Reviewed: Dec. 8, 2012
This glaze is amazing! Hubs asked me to please remember this recipe; a good sign!! I made the glaze and grilled the steaks. I did whisk in a little butter at the end. I will double the glaze next time. Thank you!

Pork Medallions with Balsamic Vinegar and Capers

Reviewed: Dec. 4, 2012
Marianne, this was delicious!! I followed the recipe but hubs is off pork for a while and made it with thin sliced chicken. This is a keeper and will make this again soon! Hubs loved it, too!! While not necessary, I might try using white wine in lieu of broth some time. This is simple enough for a week night and elegant enough for company! Thank you!

Baked Oatmeal

Reviewed: Oct. 31, 2012
We enjoyed this very much. It's easy to put together for a healthy, quick breakfast to have on hand throughout the week. I poured a bit of milk of warm milk over it to serve. This actually made 10 serving, possibly 12. I used half the sugar and used applesauce in lieu of butter with a nice result. Next time, I will use half the salt. Very good! Thank you!

Spinach Casserole

Reviewed: Oct. 29, 2012
We really liked this! It is so easy to prepare ahead of time as a side and so adaptable to being made "light". I also subbed fat free Greek yogurt for the sour cream. I will definitely make this again! Thank you!

Easy Vodka Sauce

Reviewed: Oct. 26, 2012
This requires time to monitor but it is very easy. I made a half and followed the recipe. I tasted it before adding anything and while Vodka Sauce is supposed to be pretty basic, I wanted a bit more flavor and added a teaspoon of Italian blend of spice. I served this over Italian sausage ravioli and loved it!! Thank you!!

Spicy Maryland Crab Dip

Reviewed: Oct. 17, 2012
This is the best stuff! Crab just isn't crab without Old Bay!! Be sure to add the fresh lemon, it really brightens it up. The better the crab, the better the dip! I have made a version of this for years and warmed it all in a sauce pan and served it in a chafing dish. Baking it was nice, too, and an easy option. Thank you!!

Mama's Asian Chicken and Rice

Reviewed: Oct. 17, 2012
This was easy and delicious. I made up the sauce earlier in the day and stored in the fridge. I followed it exactly but lightly steamed broccoli at the end. I would make this again!!

Slow Cooker Carrot Cake Steel Cut Oats

Reviewed: Oct. 13, 2012
We just loved this! We had a guy doing work at the house early Saturday morning and hubs asked me warm up 2 big bowls for them. Not eggs, sweet rolls or a big sandwich, OATMEAL! Lol!! I halved this and used a 5 qt slow cooker. It only took about 3 hours. I used the entire can of pineapple, didn't drain it and the full amount of raisins. I don't know what the sugar equivalent of the sugar substitute would be so I just added a 1/4 cup of brown sugar instead. It was just right, not too sweet. I keep this in containers in the frig, put what I want in a bowl, add milk and microwave a 1 1/2 minutes. Thank you! Great, fun recipe. I know my husband will request it often and I am happy to make for him!!

Pork Tenderloin with Dijon Marsala Sauce

Reviewed: Oct. 13, 2012
I was really worried making this. The marsala seemed so overpowering and the sauce was "littered" with browned bits and onions. I decided to strain the sauce and am happy to note the marsala flavor softened considerably and was most enjoyable over nice moist slices of tenderloin and rice! Thanks!

Downeast Maine Pumpkin Bread

Reviewed: Oct. 3, 2012
Have made this a few times and thought I had reviewed it before! I made it again this morning and it is as wonderful this time as the first time! I do cut the oil and add a half cup applesauce. I used white whole wheat flour this time with no consequence and added 3/4 cup raisins and 3/4 cup chopped pecans. Best pumpkin bread I've ever had!!

Butternut Squash Soup II

Reviewed: Oct. 3, 2012
Great stuff!! As many suggested, I roasted the squash and it made it very easy. I roasted a large yam instead of using white potato. For those that didn't, or wouldn't add celery in the future because of the texture in the smooth soup, use a vegetable peeler down the back of the stalk to remove the stringy "veins" and you won't have a problem. Also, if you use white pepper, you won't have black specks in the pretty yellow soup. After blending this to a velvety texture and tasting, I agree it was a tad bland. I added cinnamon, nutmeg, clove and ginger which improved it considerably. The best thing about this is that it is so healthy and good! Thank you!

Chocolate Chocolate Chip Nut Muffins

Reviewed: Oct. 1, 2012
Delicious! I used a 1 1/2" scoop and this made 32 adorable mini-muffins. So moist and chocolatey! I skipped the nuts in them but put a pecan on the top of each one before I baked them. I did add about a 1/4 cup more cocoa. So easy and so good! Thank you!!

Corned Beef and Cabbage I

Reviewed: Sep. 28, 2012
This was amazing! Used a bottle of beer plus water, other than that, I followed the recipe. We weren't ready to eat when this was done and it kept nicely for an hour or so on low on the stove. I will definitely make this again! Sooo easy and good!

Pumpkin Crunch Cake

Reviewed: Sep. 27, 2012
I had great hopes for this in being a creative alternative to a traditional pumpkin pie. It just didn't work for me. The cake mix poured on top with all the butter just turned into a thick, sweet paste. I followed the recipe, it could be a matter of taste, but thought it was incredibly rich with an odd consistency.

White Chocolate Raspberry Cheesecake

Reviewed: Sep. 22, 2012
Well, another glowing review for this recipe!! I made this along with 2 other cheesecakes for a luncheon. It was so pretty and well recieved. I did make some changes based on many of the reviews. I added an extra egg, 8oz block of cream cheese, a third cup of white chocolate chips and used a 10 inch springform. I also subbed seedless raspberry preserves for the sauce with great results. I used parchment in the pan, put a pan of water on the shelf below the cheesecake, baked an hour, "cracked" the oven and turned it off an additional hour or until the oven had cooled. I covered with saran and refrigerated overnight. Slide a knife around the sides and release the springform, cut with a hot knife and then decorated with fresh berries. That made it easy for guests to take a nicely decorated piece. Thank you!

Key Lime Cheesecake I

Reviewed: Sep. 20, 2012
I made this twice in the last week, one being a trial for a dinner at home before taking it to a luncheon. Both times it was well received and enjoyed by all! Even though it is a cheesecake, it has a nice refreshing "light" flavor. I studied the tips and suggestions and did add an extra egg, 8oz block of creamed cheese and reduced the key lime to 1/2 cup. I cut a circle of parchment for the bottom of the pan and it easily moved to the plate from the pan. I placed a large pan of water on the shelf below the pan, turned the oven off after an hour and left it sitting in the cracked" oven an additional hour. I refrigerated over night, sliced with a clean hot knife. For the luncheon, I sliced, then decorated the cake with fresh lime on each slice so it was easy for people to remove a piece and still have it look nicely presented on their plate. This will be a nice dessert to have in my pocket that can be made a day or 2 ahead of time and it looks like it came from a restaurant!! Thank you!

Grilled Marinated Swordfish

Reviewed: Sep. 11, 2012
We were pleasantly surprised by this! I was worried about all the poultry seasoning but it really added a nice flavor! I combined a bit of sour cream with minced onion, horseradish and dijon to make a garnish/sauce that went nicely over it. I would make this again! Thank you!
