No Roll Sugar Cookies

Reviewed: Dec. 3, 2007
these were soooo good! i was looking for a macadamia nut cookie, without any other add-ins, which i couldn't find. so i ended up making these and adding some chopped unsalted macadamia nuts. the cookie is perfect and melt in your mouth good and the nuts added a nice crunch. **made these again for chrismtas minus the macadamia nuts. they look so pretty when you roll the balls in colored sugar before you flatten and bake them! the taste is perfect, light, airy, buttery and good.

Butternut Squash Soup

Reviewed: Nov. 13, 2007
this is really fabulous! I halved the cream cheese, which was plenty. The only addition i made was a little white wine before blending the hot soup. It "lifts" the flavors a bit, i thought. Also, the 6 cups of squash turned out to be 3 pounds almost exactly after i roasted and cubed it. We will be adding this to our Thanksgiving menu.

Local Kine Wontons

Reviewed: Oct. 25, 2007
absolutley yummy. we can eat dozens! they are really great fried in the oil(my favorite way)but also bake up quite well in mini-muffin pans. Just press the wonton wrapper into the wells in the pan and spoon in the filling and bake for 10 mins or so. great appetizer when done that way. i actually made them for thanksgiving last year, and they were a hit.

Asparagus Roll-Ups

Reviewed: Oct. 25, 2007
these were pretty good. the bacon was a little overpowering, so i think i'll leave that out next time. the one other thing i'd do differently is to add more than one spear per roll. the were too "dainty". and don't overcook the asparagus, or they will be very limp coming out of the over. blanch for just a min or two. and chill in cold water before baking.

Cream Cheese Jalapeno Hamburgers

Reviewed: Aug. 7, 2007
we really enjoyed this recipe. i love cream cheese in everything. i made a few (wonderful) changes. the biggest, and my favorite, was to add canned black beans (about 1/2 can) to the meat mixture. i wanted a little more flavor and moisture, and the beans made the meat so moist and extra meaty, if that's possible. i also used much less jalapeno and also added fresh tomato to the cream cheese mixture. cooked these under the broiler and they were awesome. my boyfriend went back for seconds.

Stuffed Chicken Valentino

Reviewed: Aug. 7, 2007
this was great! will be making this quite often. did make a few changes. i marinated the chicken in a basalamic/olive oil/garlic combo for about 15-20 minutes, and skipped the chives, because i didn't have any. i did add the pancetta, as others had done and it really added another layer of flavor. oh, and when i rolled everything up, i blotted the excess marinade from the chicken or it's too slippery. also added some extra parmesan to the tops of the rolls when i took them out of the oven. they're still warm enough that i melts, and is gooey. great dish!

Honey Walnut Shrimp

Reviewed: Mar. 6, 2007
this was wonderful! my boyfriend was so excited to come home to this meal. I used the candied walnuts you can buy in the snack section of the grocery store instead of making my own.we doubled the sauce recipe, and its really good over rice too! (i also made the Local Kine Wontons from this site, which were excellent!)
