Brandy Flamed Peppercorn Steak

Reviewed: Jun. 30, 2009
I am a pansy, so I halved all the seasonings. I also cooked the shallots in the cream before adding to the steak because I don't like the taste of raw shallots. Those changes made, it was fantastic! :) I used a grass fed, organic beef and it was delicious!

Nancy's Chicken in Puff Pastry

Reviewed: Feb. 18, 2009
I make this recipe with crescent rolls (keep the rolls in them in rectangles, fill with cream cheese mixture and then fold them up and pinch the rolls together). I also brush the tops with egg whites and sprinkle breadcrumbs on top for that little extra crunch. :) Yummy!

Oatmeal and Applesauce Pancakes

Reviewed: Aug. 28, 2008
I tried to like these. I really did. And I cooked them on verrrrrrry low and they still only burnt on the outside and never cooked in the inside. I'll make myself eat the rest and then will toss the recipe.

Pear Pie III

Reviewed: Mar. 7, 2008
My husband loved this recipe, but I couldn't eat it (the texture of the pears once they are cooked is WAY too mushy for me).

Fusion Chicken

Reviewed: Feb. 29, 2008
I really wanted to like this recipe. I followed other reviewer's comments about adding more seasonings and serving it as a fajita. Either way, I just didn't like it. :( Oh, well!

Artichoke Chicken

Reviewed: Mar. 1, 2007
My husband and father say this is a five star dish. (I won't touch it b/c it has artichoke hearts, which I'm not a big fan of...) It's super easy to make, too!

Linguine with Peppers and Sausage

Reviewed: Mar. 1, 2007
I made the same changes as other people (added more garlic, plenty of italian seasoning, some garlic powder, lots of salt, some black pepper) as well as doubling the amount of parmesan cheese in the dish. I also didn't have two red peppers, so I used a red and a yellow. I am not a huge fan of Italian sausage, so I used sun dried tomato sausage. (It sounds like I'm rewriting the recipe, but I'm really not!) All said, I gave the meal a 4 but my hubby gave it a 2, so I guess it depends on what taste you are looking for.... I'll definitely make it again, and I'll just have an alternative sauce on hand for him. :)

Chickpea Salad II

Reviewed: Feb. 17, 2007
My dr. put me on a high fiber diet, so I have been trying to find interesting and tasty ways to meet my goals. This salad was fantastic! I omitted the onions because I don't like them. I used a long, English cucumber and did not chop it overly finely. My only recommendation would be to cut back on the garlic just a bit and then add more if you feel the desire.

Mushroom Crescents

Reviewed: Dec. 16, 2006
Taste: excellent, at least according to my guests who at them all with no complaints. :) However, these were a huge challenge to prepare (getting the crescents to close was frustrating). I had more filling than dough, so you might want to account for that. Also, don't make the mistake that I did and please remember to grease your baking sheet. They do reheat nicely and look good, too. I didn't try any (not a mushroom fan) but again, guests say that these were great.

Lemon Bread

Reviewed: Dec. 16, 2006
This was definitely easy to make, and while I'm not a huge lemon fan, my guests that ate it really enjoyed it. Like others, I traded out the nuts for poppy seeds. I'll definitely make this again since everyone that ate it seemed to enjoy it.

Holiday Cranberry Chutney

Reviewed: Dec. 16, 2006
This was EXCELLENT and I'll definitely make it again and again. We served it on top of cream cheese and used Triscuits to eat it. So delicious! I'm tempted to finish off the half sitting in front of me, but I'll resist. Anyway, this makes a sizeable portion, so keep that in mind when you make it. Definitely very, very good. :)

Luscious Spinach Artichoke Dip

Reviewed: Dec. 16, 2006
I didn't eat any of this (I don't like spinach or artichokes) but my guests told me that it was excellent. I put in too many artichokes for some people's tastes, but my husband (a huge choke fan) says he'll gladly polish it off. I was working from a huge Costco sized jar of the artichokes, so it was bound to happen. :) This was a winner, though, and I'll serve it again at Christmas!

Mini Cheesecakes I

Reviewed: Dec. 16, 2006
These were a huge hit, especially for their portability. I would recommend adding some lemon zest to the "original" version of this cheesecake if you plan on serving it plain. Also, you probably will not need nearly as many cookie crumbs as suggested. Great Recipe, though! :)

Bread and Celery Stuffing

Reviewed: Nov. 24, 2006
If you make this as a "casserole" (i.e., don't stick it in the turkey), you'll want to add extra broth or else the bread is REALLY crunchy. I only used 1/2 cup butter to save a few calories and it tasted just fine. Oh, and I followed other users' recommendations to use French bread and to toast it in the toaster oven at 200° before adding it to the veggies... I'll make this again to be sure!

Green Bean and Portobello Mushroom Casserole

Reviewed: Nov. 24, 2006
Got lots of compliments on this at tonight's Thanksgiving dinner. It was easy to prepare, although start in a large stock pot so that you don't waste extra dishes in the long run. I did without the olive oil as there was plenty of bacon grease left to work with. My mushroom soup also didn't have garlic in it, but no one was the wiser. :) I have been requested to make this again for future events, so you should try it too!

Tangy Honey Glazed Ham

Reviewed: Nov. 24, 2006
This glaze was good, but I'm not sure if I would make it again since my ham came with a glaze pack that would have been MUCH simpler to put together on such a crazy holiday. But it was fun to give it a try and it definitely was tasty! :)

Chocolate Banana Bread

Reviewed: Nov. 21, 2006
We absolutely loved this. I think I ate three slices last night and another this morning for breakfast. Not healthy, but so moist and so yummy!

Acorn Squash Soup

Reviewed: Nov. 20, 2006
I think this would be excellent if you enjoyed the taste/texture of squash more than I do. I wanted to be brave, so we tried it. It went well with seasoned pork chops, though, so I would recommend that as a side. :)

Hearty Bean Chowder

Reviewed: Nov. 20, 2006
This was okay... We made this and split it with our friends. They really enjoyed it, but we thought it was just okay. Definitely worth making, though, because I can see how you could really love it. It's just not my husband's and my style. :)

Peruvian Chicken Soup (Aguadito de Pollo)

Reviewed: Nov. 20, 2006
I'm not sure if I did something wrong, but my rice absorbed all the juices and this just became mush. :/
