Merritt's Butternut Squash Gratin

Reviewed: Nov. 23, 2009
I made this last night for a Pre-Thanksgiving get together and everyone was raving about it!! Almost everyone asked me for the recipe. Little did they know, they were the guinea pigs. I WILL BE MAKING THIS FOR THANKSGIVING!!! Only thing that I'll do different (and this was my mistake not the recipe) I mixed all the cheeses and bread crumbs in with the squash instead of just pouring it on top. It still turned out wonderful but looked a little mushy. Can't wait to make this one again. Tip: ask for the Gruyere cheese from the deli they will cut you off a piece, it ended up being $8 cheeper than buying 2 from the case which would only make one batch, buying from the case I'll actually be able to make 2 more dishes.

Lime Chicken with Cilantro Cream Sauce and Roasted Zucchini

Reviewed: Nov. 17, 2009
This dish was very flavorful but the zucchini came out a bit soggy and the sauce was very runny. A friend of mine said to try it out but after comparing we both had the same review "runny sauce". I'd be willing to try it again but only if i can get the sauce thicker. Note: I didn't change anything on the recipe and followed it to a T.

Rhubarb-Raspberry Crunch

Reviewed: Jul. 2, 2009
Tried this a few times now, once using raspberries and the second time using strawberries. Both times tasted great but each time the fruit mix bubbled over the crust and makes it look messy, I even doubled the crust both times. Not sure what i'm doing wrong but it taste good either way...besides when you serve it up with some vanilla ice cream no one cares what it looks like.

Easy Garlic Chicken

Reviewed: Dec. 23, 2009
So tasty!!! I used parmesan bread crumbs cuz the store I went to was all out of seasoned bread crumbs. Other than that one little substitution it was wonderful. I will be making this again.

Turkey Pot Pie II

Reviewed: Dec. 17, 2009
This was great and plan on making it again for another group of friends. I would have given it 5 stars however the bottom crust was a bit soggy so i think i'm going to take the advice of a few others and bake the bottom crust a smidge prior to putting the filling in the pie. Thanks for a great recipe!

Roasted Vegetable Orzo

Reviewed: Jul. 2, 2009
Awesome, that's all I have to say!! You can throw in just about any veggie and it tastes great. I use Feta cheese instead of the Parmesan though.

Slow Cooker Chicken Taco Soup

Reviewed: Jul. 2, 2009
This turned out yummy! My boyfriend likes his food super spicey so i made sure i put extra spices in it. I used Ranch style and black beans and doubled the recipe as well. I did use the beer, wasn't sure what kind to use so i figured I couldn't go wrong with Stella. Topped it off with some cheese, sour cream and cut up an avocado.
