Spicy Tuna Fish Cakes

Reviewed: Jun. 17, 2013
I thought this was just "OK." The texture was good, but the flavor was a bit bland.

Beef Barley Stew

Reviewed: Jan. 4, 2011
I'm giving this 5 stars because it is absolutely delicious. One of the best recipes I've tried in a long time. I used the ingredients as written, but adapted the methodology to make in the slow cooker. I coated the meat in flour, salt, and pepper and browner it on the stove. Then I added all ingredients except mushrooms, barley, and vinegar to the slow cooker and cooked on low for 6 hours. When there was 1 1/2 hrs left on the timer I added the barley and mushrooms. I added the vinegar at the very end as instructed. The sauce was a nice consistency and the flavor was fantastic. My husband, houseguests, and even our 1 yr old ate it up. Thanks for sharing.

Chocolate Chip Banana Bread - Cherry Almond variety

Reviewed: Sep. 25, 2010
I've tried a few different recipes for banana bread, but this is the best yet - with or without the chocolate chips. Seems like it might also be good with dried fruit.

Tangy Honey Glazed Ham

Reviewed: Dec. 27, 2009
This glaze is delicious. The orange zest/juice give it a freshness that is above and beyond the typical honey glaze. A real stand out flavor that my family loved on our Christmas ham. Served it with Jamie's Cranberry Spinach salad from this site, using the orange flavored craisins, and Giada's Baked Mashed Potatoes. A simple yet delicious holiday meal.

Health Nut Blueberry Muffins

Reviewed: Aug. 14, 2009
These were easy to make and taste really good. They aren't too dense and heavy like many "healthy" muffin recipes. I used a really ripe banana, so the banana flavor dominated the blueberries. Might try canned pumpkin or applesause next time for a milder flavor.

Melissa's Turkey Meatloaf

Reviewed: Jul. 13, 2009
Made this for dinner last night and it was simple and delicious. Very moist and flavorful. I didn't have any tomato soup, so I used half a small can of V8 and it came out great.

Chocolate Cream Pie II

Reviewed: Jan. 10, 2009
Both my husband and I grew up with the chocolate pies made from instant pudding. The first time, I made this (for Christmas), my husband couldn't understand why I would bother making it from scratch. Then we tasted it. Now, we will never go back to the instant pudding pie. On this first try, I used whole milk and white sugar just as the recipe is written. Today, I made if for a second time, using nonfat milk and 3/4 cup splenda blend in place of 1.5 cup sugar. This lighter version came out just as velvety smooth and delicious.

Wild Rice Harvest Casserole

Reviewed: Dec. 14, 2008
This recipe has great flavor and texture. I got a lot of compliments on it. It took a while to assemble and needed to bake, covered, longer than perscribed to cook the wild rice, but it really is good.

Moroccan Lentil Soup

Reviewed: Oct. 12, 2008
This is a great soup. I'd give it 5 stars, but I didn't follow the recipe exactly. I used 4 cups chicken broth and 2 cups vegetable broth for the liquid. I didn't have cardamom so substituted curry powder, which, with the garam masala, gave it a very Indian flavor and aroma. Makes a hearty, satisfying meal over rice, and would also be good with couscous. Best of all, it's really easy. Just chop some vegies and open some cans. Let it simmer while you take the dog for a walk, and when you get home, make some rice and dinner's ready.

Fudge Brownies I

Reviewed: Sep. 7, 2008
This recipe is really good, but I did follow some of the modifications of other reviewers (2 eggs, etc). Next time, I will try the recipe as written. The brownies are really chocolaty, but are also kind of buttery and fudgy. Really good.

Corrigan's Minestrone

Reviewed: Aug. 5, 2008
Loved the texture of the different veggies coming together with the beans, potatoes and pasta. Makes for a hearty soup. However, flavor is king, and this soup is pretty bland.

Jamie's Cranberry Spinach Salad

Reviewed: Jul. 8, 2008
1250 positive reviews can't be wrong! This is now one of my favorite salads. I use honey instead of white sugar in the dressing, but otherwise haven't changed a thing. Thanks for sharing.

Chicken Pot Pie IX

Reviewed: Mar. 17, 2008
This recipe is a great foundation. I made some modifications to this recipe that turned out quite well. I'm not a fan of boiled chicken so I browned the cubed chicken breast in olive oil to sear in the juices. Then I added the vegies, stirred them around a bit, and covered them to steam in their own juices until just tender (about 8 minutes). Then I removed the vegies directly to the pastry shell. In the same pan, I sauteed the onions in olive oil, and added the flour. When the flour had cooked a little, I added a cup of white wine to deglaze the pan, brought it to a simmer and added the broth. It thickened up nicely. I used sage instead of celery seed. The sauce had a gravy-like texture and the wine added terrific flavor. I used an egg wash on the pastry and it came out really shiny and golden. My husband and I loved this.

Quick Chicken And Wine

Reviewed: Jan. 27, 2008
I'm only giving 4 stars because the original recipe was a little bit plain, but it's a great start and is easily spiced up. As another reviewer suggested, I added some dried basil and oregano leaves to the cheese. I also added a jar of artichoke hearts, drained and chopped, and three cloves of finely chopped garlic to the wine. The artichokes give the sauce a really great flavor. The cheese makes a nice crust which seals in the ckicken juices. My huband and I loved this.

German Leek and Potato Soup

Reviewed: Jan. 2, 2008
Made this with the ham bone from our Christmas dinner. What a yummy, hearty winter soup. The only thing I did differently from the recipe was I subsituted 1 cup of white wine and 1 cup of chicken stock for 2 cups of the water, just to add a little extra flavor. Don't think it made much difference, though, as the ham and leeks are the dominant flavors. Mine wasn't super thick because the potatoes I used were a tad small (yukon golds). Will probably get bigger russet potatoes next time.
