Salmon and Rice Balls

Reviewed: Oct. 14, 2009
Based on the previous review, I added some seasoning (Worcestershire sauce, dill, a little cayenne, and some parsley for color) to the recipe and I was pleased with the result. I did use the optional carrots. The sauce is very pale looking and I think a few drops of Kitchen Bouquet or the like would give it a better appearance. It's a comfort kind of food, and I would make it again.

Orzo with Chicken and Artichokes

Reviewed: Oct. 12, 2009
Absolutely delicious! Wonderful blend of many flavors. I used half the orzo as many suggested, but I think I'd use more next time. It's a keeper.

Mexican Rice II

Reviewed: Oct. 7, 2009
I thought it was great and I'd definitely make it again! I never made Mexican Rice before and didn't realize how easy it was, and I liked that it wasn't salty, as so many packaged rice mixes are. I served it with some chipotle chicken enchilladas.

Creamy Sweet Potato With Ginger Soup

Reviewed: Sep. 28, 2009
This is a nice fall soup. The spices are just right, and I love how the cayenne doesn't hit you at first, but sneaks up on you. I bought honey roasted peanuts especially for this, but I don't think they added that much to it; in fact, I would use plain roasted peanuts in the future.

Dark Chocolate Bacon Cupcakes

Reviewed: Sep. 27, 2009
My curiosity would never be satisfied until I tried these. I used half regular cocoa and half dark cocoa for them. While it's an interesting combination of flavors, now that my curiosity has been satisfied, I doubt I would make them again. I loved my husband's comment, "It's like eating dinner and dessert together". I iced them with Rich Chocolate Frosting, again using half regular and half dark cocoa. In the future, I think I'll keep my dinner and dessert separate, but I urge the curious to give these a try.

Orzo with Parmesan and Basil

Reviewed: Sep. 22, 2009
What a nice change from rice or potatoes as a side dish! Other than cutting the butter down to 1 tbsp. I made it as the recipe states, and it's delicious. Definitely a make-again.

Harvard Beets

Reviewed: Sep. 22, 2009
I've never made Harvard Beets before, just heated them out of a jar. These are very easy to make and taste great. I would suggest two tablespoons of corn starch to make the sauce thicker so it clings to the beets. I cut the sugar back to 1/2 cup because I like some zing to my Harvard Beets. These are a really good change from "ordinary" vegetables.

Baked Asiago Frittata

Reviewed: Sep. 15, 2009
I don't usually review recipes I've made significant changes to, but I had Italian turkey sausage on hand and used it in this dish. I thought the outcome was delicious and I would make it again.

Cajun Crawfish and Shrimp Etouffe

Reviewed: Sep. 14, 2009
I had every intention of using both crawfish and shrimp, but peeled crawfish tails were $12.99/lb. so I went with just shrimp. I think the roux needs to go darker than peanut butter color because the finished product was too light. I also used my common sense and cut back a bit on the cayenne & hot sauce, and the result was just hot enough for us. While this was good, I have another etouffe recipe I think is better.

Romanian Apple Cake

Reviewed: Sep. 13, 2009
This is delicious, and probably the best apple cake I've ever eaten! It's loaded with apple flavor, the cinnamon doesn't overwhelm it, and the walnuts provide just the right amount of crunch. A real winner here!!!

Spicy Oil and Vinegar Bread Dip

Reviewed: Aug. 31, 2009
While this had good taste, the amount of herbs in it looked like sludge at the bottom of the container, and overall I thought it was too much. Even when poured on a bread plate it still seemed like too many herbs.

Zesty Beef Roast

Reviewed: Aug. 25, 2009
This is delicious! The meat was very tender, the gravy turned out beautifully, and the subtle horseradish taste gave an extra boost to plain roast beef. My husband liked it too, and I will make it again.

Sunday Meat Loaf

Reviewed: Aug. 23, 2009
I don't usually put vegetables in my meat loaf, but I wanted to try a different recipe and had all the necessary ingredients for this. It's an excellent meat loaf! It's packed with flavor and is very moist. My husband said he liked it better than my usual recipe, so it looks like this is going to become my standard.

Allison's Pasta Salad

Reviewed: Aug. 23, 2009
I made this salad because I had some grapes I wanted to use up. I didn't have quite enough Cheddar, so I put some Swiss in too. I thought it was a really good salad and it was a nice mix of flavors and textures. My only complaint was that even in the relatively short time I chilled it, the dressing pretty much got sucked up by the pasta.

Sweet Sausage 'n' Beans

Reviewed: Jul. 24, 2009
As written I think this is too sweet, but I would make it again and cut back some on the sugar. The only change I made was to put a few shots of hot sauce into it to counteract some of the sweetness. I cooked it on low for about 7 hours. It's a good dish, and I'll make it again. It would be good to take to a pot luck.

Pork Medallions with Balsamic Vinegar and Capers

Reviewed: Jul. 21, 2009
This is a very good dish, but I believe it would be better by making the medallions thinner and at least doubling the sauce. If you reduce the amount that's called for, there is very little left for on the pork, let alone for putting some over rice or a similar accompaniment. I also needed additional time to cook the pork than stated. Nevertheless, it's a good dish that's not very time consuming.

Creamy Curried Scrambled Eggs

Reviewed: Jul. 9, 2009
I was a little afraid of cream cheese in scrambled eggs, but I really liked the final product. The eggs had just enough curry flavor and overall were very good. I served them with herb twists.

Smoky Sweet Pea Soup

Reviewed: Jul. 6, 2009
I had expected more depth of flavor than this delivered. Perhaps it was too much water in proportion to the other ingredients.
