Spinach, Caramelized Onion, and Muenster Au Gratin Potatoes

Reviewed: Sep. 25, 2012
Um, this was ridiculously amazing. Next time I need to add a little more salt but perfect otherwise.

Best Chocolate Chip Cookies

Reviewed: Sep. 15, 2012
These were OK. Even though I refrigerated them, they flattened out immediately. The taste was fine but nothing special.

Chipotle Crusted Pork Tenderloin

Reviewed: Aug. 17, 2012
This was delicious, didn't change a thing, except to sub out 1/2 of chile powder for regular since ours is very spicy. We may have overcooked the pork a bit because it would have been fabulous if there had been some kind of sauce so something to keep in mind for next time.

Honey Peanut Granola

Reviewed: Aug. 17, 2012
I know I'm changing this recipe all around and I hate it when people do that but I was really just using it as a base and incorporating ideas from many different recipes out there. So here goes: no peanuts, about a 1/4 c honey and sugar. 1 tsp cinnamon. Heated liquid first before mixing with oats. Saw a method of cooking at 375 for 10 min and then let sit in oven while it cools. May have gotten a tad bit overdone. Granola is super crunchy and has some nice chunks but seems to be lacking some flavor. Will need to punch it up for next time.

Zucchini and Feta Cheese Fritters (Kolokithokeftedes)

Reviewed: Aug. 8, 2012
It won't let me write anything without putting in stars which stinks because I'm not comfortable rating this without making it the right way because I was missing ingredients. Seems like a good base recipe. Baked at 400 for 10 minutes or so.

Curried Couscous Salad with Bacon

Reviewed: Jul. 19, 2012
Could use more curry powder and think I will add cumin next time. Added jalapeno and cilantro which added a nice flavor.

Summery Lime-Mango Shortcakes

Reviewed: Jul. 3, 2012
This was pretty good. Didn't add gelatin to the cream and reduced salt but reduced it too much. My mangoes weren't very ripe or sweet so I think that will help. It made a ton of shortcakes but I think I made them too flat, will make them bigger next time. Liked the lime zest in the cakes.

Caribbean-Spiced Pork Side Ribs

Reviewed: Jun. 25, 2012
Put this rub on country style and spareribs - came out better on the country style. One thing we didn't do was tightly cover the ribs while cooking. Flavor was great.

Double Fudge Kahlua Brownies

Reviewed: May 10, 2012
I didn't make the frosting for these and it did seem like they were missing something. Not a very soft brownie but the flavor was good. Will try again and rate.

Chipotle Cream Chicken

Reviewed: Mar. 7, 2012
This was OK, good basic recipe. It might be nice to add pasta or something to it to soak up the sauce.

Shrimp Francesca

Reviewed: Jan. 5, 2012
This was good but for me, not as amazing as the other reviewers made it out to be. I guess there's some ease in assembling it in a baking dish, but I think I would rather saute all the ingredients. I did not use as much butter as it called for and I'm sure that affected it but I just don't think we need to have a whole stick of butter in one dinner! The bread crumbs didn't seem to add anything at all. Loved the artichokes and my family liked it but I think there are better ways to put this dish together.

Spicy Garlic Lime Chicken

Reviewed: Jan. 4, 2012
This was good but I didn't think it was anything spectacular. The spice mixture didn't jump out at me but I enjoyed the limey taste. I did add some chopped jalapenos and finished with some tequila. The rest of the family enjoyed.

I soooo wanted to like this better than my traditional pie but unfortunately, I didn't.

Spinach Brownies

Reviewed: Nov. 22, 2011
This is a terrific base recipe. I used a frozen pack of spinach that I cooked and squeezed out. Added some roasted red peppers and feta cheese. Also added some pepper flakes and garlic powder. Only used 3 tbsp of butter and glad I did because it would have been way too greasy otherwise. Melted butter and then added minced onion to that. Next time, I will add artichokes. The only thing that surprised me was how thin they came out. Don't know if this was a function of how I cooked them or not. Still delicious!

Jamie's Minestrone

Reviewed: Nov. 15, 2011
This was great. Took some advice from others - used all chicken broth but had to add some water as it did get too thick. Used large can of crushed tomatoes instead of sauce. Added red wine, some red pepper for zing and about half a lemon to brighten it up. Waited to add the beans until the end so not too mushy. Great basic recipe.

Asparagus with Lime and Ginger

Reviewed: Oct. 10, 2011
This was really good. I roasted the asparagus but that takes some more oil so the end result was a little more oil than I normally like so next time I will steam them.

Kale and Chickpea Soup

Reviewed: Oct. 2, 2011
This was pretty good and loved the fact that it was so healthy. Something seemed to be lacking in the flavor department so I may need to experiment with some spices. Depending on the chorizo used, I may also add some tabasco.

Linguine with Seafood and Sundried Tomatoes

Reviewed: Sep. 28, 2011
I hesitate to review this because I didn't make it exactly the way stated in the recipe due to ingredients I had on hand. That being said, I would imagine it to be a good, basic recipe but nothing that would be extraordinary. Used fresh lemon basil in place of the zest and that gave it a fresh flavor but I can see it being brighter with the zest. I'll try it again the right way and leave a final review.

Pleasant Pork Chops

Reviewed: Sep. 26, 2011
This was a nice change to the usual chops - nothing out of this world but a good, solid, comfort food meal. Followed the suggestions of others and used wine and broth. Cooked for about 30 minutes and will probably increase it next time. Served with hot, buttered linguini.

Banana Crumb Muffins

Reviewed: Sep. 14, 2011
Added vanilla and some cinnamon. Forgot to add nuts but will do that next time. Very moist and not too bananey. Also, don't usually have time to make the topping so just sprinkle with some cinnamon sugar.
