Phyllo Turnovers with Shrimp and Ricotta Filling

Reviewed: Mar. 11, 2008
I prepared the shrimp mixture for a party, but there was too much food, so instead I saved the shrimp mixture and tossed it with pasta the next day. It was awesome! It was so good I made up little containers for others to try. I will be making this again for pasta - I can't wait to try it with the phyllo though!! It must be amazing.

Bacon Wrapped Dates

Reviewed: May 11, 2008
I hardly noticed the cheese in this. I do not think it is worth the effort of stuffing the dates with cheese. I tried both this recipe and some chevre (goat cheese) and both times the cheese seemed to disappear. I used maple bacon which made a nice aroma and did not make the dates too sweet. I also wrapped the dates with a whole slice of bacon instead of a portion of a slice and they were very good.

Strawberry Spinach Salad I

Reviewed: Jun. 16, 2010
Excellent recipe. I now make the dressing in tupperware and keep it in the fridge to use every day. I substitute the olive oil for sesame oil. I toast the sesame seeds. These steps bring a great nutty flavor to the dressing that I love. I use Splenda instead of sugar. I have tried both minced onion and finely grated onion; it is good both ways. I omit the poppy seeds because I don't see a need for them. Please try it with sesame oil; you will like the results.

Frijoles a la Charra

Reviewed: Jan. 10, 2010
This had excellent flavor. I will be honest: I used canned beans in a saucepan instead. Either use quality bacon or chop your cheapo bacon up really finely. I worried unnecessarily about the saltiness before I added the beer. I had to cook it longer to reduce the beer down and next time will add just half a bottle. I liked the heat that the pickled jalapenos added to the beans, though I tended to leave all of them at the bottom of my bowl. I liked that the heat did not overpower the dish but was still detectable. I really enjoyed the flavor in these beans. I will make this again.

Buffalo Chicken Dip

Reviewed: Jan. 5, 2010
I tried this recipe because it had so many good reviews. But, I am not so sure about it. At the party, I put it in my mini slow cooker and put it in the corner. I did not like it at first. Finally, after 3 hours of cooking, it started to not taste or smell funny. I think it was the canned chicken that made it strange, and that just had to cook off. In the end, it tasted okay, but the beginning of it I was sure it was not going to work out well.

Sugar Coated Pecans

Reviewed: Mar. 11, 2008
The salt really makes this recipe. I used a generous amount of ground sea salt. If it was just sweet, it would be okay, but the salt makes it great.

Pickle Rolls

Reviewed: Mar. 11, 2008
I don't use tortillas. I just spread the cream cheese on the ham, roll a pickle up in it, skewer with toothpicks, and slice up!

Cucumber Sandwiches I

Reviewed: Mar. 11, 2008
My mom has made these for parties since I was a kid. We use plain cream cheese for the spread and garnish with celery salt. Yum!

Chicken Cordon Bleu II

Reviewed: Apr. 23, 2009
The sauce was pretty bland. Too much cream, not enough wine flavor. Added a lot of salt to make it decent. The sauce broke after I took it off the heat. I wouldn't make it again for myself. I wanted something more flavorful but it tasted really plain.

Apple Crisp II

Reviewed: Mar. 16, 2009
Made this recipe twice and was pleased with the results. The first time came out too watery and not as flavorful as I like. The second time I used half the water and added a pinch of salt and some crushed pecans to the topping and it came out better.
