Chicken Cordon Bleu II

Reviewed: Nov. 29, 2010
very good! I might cook it a bit less next time so the chicken doesn't dry out.

Marinated Pork Tenderloin

Reviewed: Apr. 17, 2010
This was delicious! I followed another user's suggestions and used 2 tbsp of fresh minced onion instead of the dried onio, and baked the tenderloin for 45 minutes on 400. I covered the dish with foil for the first 30 minutes and then took the foil off for the last 15 minutes. Served with asparagus and roasted potatoes (olive oil, salt, pepper, garlic powder & dried rosemary).

Spanish Flan

Reviewed: Feb. 21, 2010
This turned out great even though it was my first time making flan. I ended up adding water to the sugar and stirring while it cooked, in order to make the sugar carmelize. I also added a little brown sugar. One thing I wish I knew ahead of time was that the flan still jiggles when it's done cooking. The best way to check whether it's finished is by sticking a knife in the center. I did as others suggested and cooked it in a water bath. I also blended the egg mixture in a blender, which was nice and easy.

Apple Goat Cheese Bruschetta

Reviewed: Oct. 2, 2009
Delicious! Drizzling some honey over the bruschetta before you serve it takes this to a whole new level.

Tacos in Pasta Shells

Reviewed: Oct. 1, 2009
Yum! this was good. my only complaint is that I wished that I had more sauce. I used half an ortega bottle under the pasta and half on top. Next time I'll buy 2 bottles i think. Really serves 3 people.

Apple Crisp III

Reviewed: Sep. 27, 2009
I'd give this a 5 for simplicity and taste but I had to make a few minor changes, so it's a 4. I used 1/2 white sugar and 1/2 brown sugar and I added 1/2 tsp. of vanilla to the sugar & butter mixture. The only thing I'd chnage for next time is I'd use l/3 cup water instead of 1/2 cup. The apples turned out a little too mushy.

Best Big, Fat, Chewy Chocolate Chip Cookie

Reviewed: Sep. 19, 2009
these are good but not best. I slightly overcooked some of them and those ended up tasting pretty dry and cakey. the rest I cooked for the correct amount of time and they were better. I think I'd like them a bit more moist, though.

Chantal's New York Cheesecake

Reviewed: Sep. 5, 2009
so so so so good! and pretty easy to make. next time I'll use a cup of sour cream instead of 3/4 cup (just for personal taste). And my crust came out a tad soft... not sure if that's because water seeped in from the water bath or because of the filling. I may bake the crust for a little while in the over prior to adding the filling next time.

Easy Pizza Sauce III

Reviewed: Sep. 5, 2009
this was perfect! super easy to make and turned out delicious. I followed others' suggestions and cut the oregano in half, added 1/2 a tsp. of dried basil, 1/2 a tsp. of onion powder and 1/4 tsp. sugar. This did make a LOT of sauce. Way more than we needed for a 12 inch pizza. Next time I will use a smaller can of tomato sauce and cut the recipe in half.

Pork Chops with Fresh Tomato, Onion, Garlic, and Feta

Reviewed: Aug. 24, 2009
I thought this was delicious and so easy to make! I overcooked the pork, though, so next time I will either use chicken or be a little more careful. The sauce was awesome! Especially with the feta. I had fresh basil and some farmer's market tomatoes, so I used those. Served with a fresh salad and an orzo pasta salad.

Greek Honey Cake

Reviewed: Aug. 24, 2009
Very yummy! perfect for the occasion (greek dinner party). I took the suggestion to double the orange zest and halve the honey sauce. It was great and everyone loved it.

Zucchini Herb Casserole

Reviewed: Aug. 17, 2009
I thought this was really delicious and easy to make! Followed other people's suggestions and increased the amount of rice to 1/2 cup and cooked it with a little boullion. Added half a red pepper and used grape tomatoes. I also tripled the minced garlic and doubled the oregano, basil and paprika. Lastly, I mixed one cup of cheese into the casserole and then sprinkled a couple handfuls on top. Really yummy!

Firecracker Grilled Alaska Salmon

Reviewed: Jul. 17, 2009
Great recipe! A lot of different flavors, some heat, a little tangy, a little sweet. I might try cutting the sauce with some water next time because it was a little thick. Maybe slightly less balsamic ving.

Balsamic-Glazed Salmon Fillets

Reviewed: May 10, 2009
I have to say I didn't like this very much. The "Grilled Salmon I" recipe is much tastier. I'll stick with that one.

Sicilian Lemon Chicken with Raisin-Tomato Sauce

Reviewed: Apr. 7, 2009
This was SO YUMMY and healthy and easy to make. I took others' advice and did not drain the tomatoes. I'm glad I didn't, the dish could have used a tad more juice. Next time I might try to add a touch of white wine or just buy crushed tomatoes instead of diced. I also left out the olives and seasoned the chicken with seasoning salt and pepper. I will definitely make this again soon! Would be a great meal to serve when guests are over for dinner.

Bacon Wrapped Dates Stuffed with Blue Cheese

Reviewed: Mar. 21, 2009
Delicious! I think 1/2 a slice of bacon for each date is too much, though. Next time I'll only use enough bacon to circle the date once. I tried with blue cheese in the inside and with almonds on the inside. I liked the blue cheese better but both were good.

Fig and Olive Tapenade

Reviewed: Mar. 10, 2009
This was fantastic! I used extra olives... probably about 3/4 cup and served with water crackers. Everyone raved about it. I will definitely make it again.

Dip For The Stars

Reviewed: Feb. 17, 2009
I used gin and served with watercrackers. Everyone loved it! I only made half the recipe and it was plenty. I may try it sans butter and with more cream cheese next time... just because it seems healthier that way!
