Missy's Candied Walnut Gorgonzola Salad

Reviewed: Jun. 22, 2008
I found the secret to getting my boyfriend to eat AND love salads: CANDIED WALNUTS. Mmmmm... this was a great salad! Will make it many more times. Wouldn't change a thing about it!

Pork with Roasted Peppers and Potatoes

Reviewed: Apr. 24, 2009
Really simple and easy to make. Will definitely make this again. Next time might add a pinch of salt and a dash of red pepper flakes; but, it is good the way it is. We served it with garlic couscous. Yum!

Cake with Buttercream Decorating Frosting

Reviewed: Jun. 29, 2008
Wow! I didn't think I'd need 3 POUNDS of confectioner's sugar, but I really did use all of it. Maybe next time find a way to incorporate cream cheese... but, this was good as is. The ideal temperature to work with it was hard to meter: too cold=too hard to spread, too warm=melty mess, just right temp=didn't stay there for more than 20 minutes. Don't know how to fix that... but, could be because my house was hot!

Potato Salad III

Reviewed: May 16, 2008
I am not a lover of potato salad (mostly due to not loving mustard or mayonnaise), so when my boyfriend insisted we make it as a side dish, I begrudgingly looked up recipes. I was happy to find one that had little mayo and no mustard. The ranch is a nice touch. Also, I wasn't expecting the extra crunch but it made it worthwhile. I split the green pepper portion in half and added a tablespoon of vinegar and some fresh parsley. I also used red onion instead of white/yellow onion. It was tasty and fresh. We also ate it before the potatoes cooled completely but I didn't find this to be problem. My boyfriend added about 1 tbsp of yellow mustard to his own serving and thought it was good as well... he didn't love it without the mustard... said "it doesn't have the same tang". In the future, I might add bacon bits and/or green onions and a dash of garlic powder. It needs just a bit more flavor and salt as the recipe stands.

New Waldorf Salad

Reviewed: Apr. 27, 2008
I've never made a Waldorf Salad before but what I liked about this recipe was that it didn't have mayo. The idea of mayo+fruit... ew. BUT, this recipe was sooooo tasty and fresh. I also don't typically love raisins but in this recipe it worked really well. I also used sliced almonds and crumbled bits of walnut... it was likely a little nuttier but I liked the flavor - it's KEY to toast the nuts first. Delicious!!!

2-Step Garlic Pork Chops

Reviewed: May 21, 2009
Easy and delicious. Good advice from other reviewers to: (1) use 2 cans instead of one (2) use more garlic (3) add fresh mushrooms. We loved it and will definitely make it again. Thanks!

Bagels II

Reviewed: Aug. 24, 2008
We really enjoyed these! The dough was hard to work with... had to have the boyfriend do the heavy kneading as I am wimpy and the dough is quite tough. Next time may used the kneader function in my bread machine instead. Also, rolling the dough into ropes was a bad idea for us: it made it hard for us to shape them into cohesive round bagels. We ended up just cutting the remainder of the whole big loaf into 9 sized cubes, shaping that into a ball (instead of rolling it into a rope and then shaping it into balls), and poked the holes in the middle. Otherwise, yum! Also... if you haven't figured out how to steam bake, we used our cast iron skillet, let it sit in the hot oven on the lowest rack while it was warming up, then right as we put the bagels in we threw some water into the skillet and shut the door as fast as we could to keep the steam in. Worked fine for us!

Peppered Pork Tenderloin

Reviewed: Jun. 9, 2008
Good flavoring. Easy! Needed to cook longer than 20 min in my oven. I sliced it up and served it with a mixed green salad with dill and cilantro, tomatoes, corn, green peppers and feta. Didn't need the dressing because the meat was so juicy but my boyfriend put a little bit of ranch on it and really liked it.

Classic Lasagna

Reviewed: Dec. 14, 2008
Very good sauce! But, I don't think it really needs a whole 90 minutes to bake. We had a brown-not-quite-burned crust of cheese on top at 60 minutes. Probably would have been okay at 45-50 minutes.

Mint Corn Salad

Reviewed: May 26, 2008
I would use less mint next time and maybe add some red onions and roast the corn, but otherwise my boyfriend really liked it and it went well with The Best Burger Ever recipe. It is super easy to make.

Stuffed Peppers

Reviewed: Mar. 17, 2009
Tasty. Added shredded provolone on top. Used wild/brown rice blend instead of white rice and ground turkey instead of beef and it tasted comparable. Needed a bit of extra italian seasoning in the sauce that tops the peppers.

Best Burger Ever

Reviewed: May 16, 2008
Oh, so gooooooood! We liked the extra heat from the hot sauce - it wasn't too much but it was still noticeable. The oatmeal keeps them nice and moist without them being raw in the middle. They were a big hit. We served them with bacon on top. Yum!
