Chantal's New York Cheesecake

Reviewed: Jan. 6, 2011
Hubby made this for Christmas. Huge hit. Delicious! It did crack but serving the pieces already cut fixed that problem. Served with blueberry compote. Yummy!

World's Best Lasagna

Reviewed: Jan. 5, 2011
Awesome! Made this for a house full on NYE. It got rave reviews. This will be the way I make lasagna and even home made sauce from now on. As per other reviewers I made a couple of changes. The sauces is very meat heavy so unless you want a 1/2 pound of meat per serving you should consider revise the amounts, or doubling the tomatoes, etc. I also think the recipe as is a little heavy on the fennel. The sausage I used was very tasty and already had a fair amount of fennel so unless you love the flavor go lightly the first time. Thanks for the great recipe! Now all my neighbors think my recent trip to Italy turned me into a great cook! ;)

Rich and Simple French Onion Soup

Reviewed: Dec. 30, 2009
This might be a jumping off point but I wouldn't call it a complete recipe. I found it was very bland and lacked depth. I thought the thyme was an odd addition to the overall flavor. I will keep looking for the right soup recipe for me. Hope you have better luck.

Blue Cheese Beef Tenderloin

Reviewed: Dec. 30, 2009
I have to admit that I just thought this was average. The marinade might have better served a cheaper cut of meat. The sauce thicken quickly after removing from the heat so it wasn't really a sauce. The flavors were fine but with the cost of tenderloin I expected something that didn't mask the quality of the meat. This wasn't horrible.. I won't try this again. Sorry!

Breakfast Pies

Reviewed: Nov. 24, 2009
These are awesome little breakfast bundles! You can substitute egg beaters, reduced fat crescent rolls, turkey bacon, and lite cheese. Then they come in around 100 calories. Gotta love that. My kids reheat them the nest morning, if any are left.

Mexican Rice III

Reviewed: Nov. 4, 2009
A keeper! My mexican family laughs that I am the only person who can't seem to make rice. Well thanks to this recipe I now have my own delicious version. My health conscious husband couldn't help himself. He had thirds!!!

Slow Cooker Carnitas

Reviewed: Nov. 4, 2009
Delicious!!! I have tried other slow cooker meat recipes and they all came out tasting like something from a can. This was moist and perfect. Use it in tacos, or for pulled prok sandwiches.

Chicken Soup III

Reviewed: Nov. 4, 2009
Great clasic soup recipe! Followed ingredients except the celery seed (didn't have any). The cooking times were off as others noted. Chicken was cooked within two hours, broth took longer than two hours to cool to the point of removing the fat. I couldn't wait so I skimmed off some of the fat and left the rest. I added potatoes instead of noodles. My husband (the typical soup maker in our family had seconds). Thanks.

Acorn Squash

Reviewed: Nov. 2, 2009
Delicious! Took the suggestions of others and microwaved a halved squash with a little water for 10 minutes. Then I popped them in a 350 oven for 25-30 minutes with the rest of the toppings. So easy, so tasty and a great wintery veggie.

Quinoa and Black Beans

Reviewed: Nov. 1, 2009
This was amazing! Instead of frozen corn, I cut the kernels off of three cobs of fresh corn. The added crunch it gave the dish was out of this world. A keeper.

Creamy Potato Leek Soup II

Reviewed: Aug. 26, 2009
This soup seems to have the right general idea but I found it a bit bland. I did alter the orignal recipe to keep from having a heart attack while eating the darn stuff. So I don't feel like I can honestly give it less than 4 stars. I used half the amount of bacon and replaced the heavy cream with equal parts of half and half and skim milk. I used about 1.5 pounds of yukon gold potatoes. I blended about half of the broth and potato mixture to thicken it up a bit. My soup loving daughter (that I made it for) said it was okay, just nothing special. I may give this one more try.

Garbanzo Bean Salad II

Reviewed: Apr. 17, 2009
I tried this because I had the ingredients on hand and it was so low fat. I found it very disappointing. The vinegar and onions were overpowering and the combination of beans and dill was very odd. There are better bean salad out there. Sorry.

Awesome Baked Sea Scallops

Reviewed: Feb. 22, 2009
Sorry.... I think the recipe has potential but needs some major changes. The breading amount was huge!!! Not sure why. 1/4 cup of crumbs would have been sufficient. I also think the butter could be reduced by 2 tablespoons. Overall the flavor is pretty bland and could use some more spices to kick it up. It was very easy to make and scallops are a difficlut ingredient to get right. I may make it again and play with the recipe to try to perfect it... but I am not rushing out to buy more scallops.

Filet Mignon with Rich Balsamic Glaze

Reviewed: Feb. 14, 2009
Awesome glaze! Like several others, I grilled the filets seperately and used the basalmic vinegar combo as a glaze. I doubled both the basalmic and vinegar, added I teaspoon of minced garlic, and 1 tablespoon of brown sugar. It needs to boil to reduce to a syrupy glaze. It will also thicken more as it cools. The clincher is the bluse cheese. The combination of that tart cheese, with the sweet glaze is perfection. My husband asked me to bookmark this sauce while we were stille eating! This one is a keeper.

German Baby

Reviewed: Jan. 1, 2009
Simply amazing! It doesn't get easier than this. I did almost everything "wrong" and still got perfect results. I don't have a cast iron skillet. I baked my in a large round ceramic baking dish. I didn't warm the ingredients first. I finished the batter before the oven was ready so it sat for several minutes. It still came out perfect. The presentation is beautiful. It looks like you have been slaving away. My mother absolutely loves the "dutch baby" from the Original Pancake House. This is a total knock off. It was awesome to be able to make this for her over the holidays. She said she liked mine even better than the restaurants. Thanks for the recipe!

Caramel Corn IV

Reviewed: Jan. 1, 2009
The caramel never reached the hard crack state in the oven but instead it crystalized. This also takes too long to make if you are trying to turn out several batches as gifts.

Microwave Oven Peanut Brittle

Reviewed: Dec. 8, 2008
The best! My husband has a much more time consuming family recipe that he has made for years. He didn't even want to try this quickie version. He reluctantly did and it came out perfect. Good bye family recipe, hello brittle in minutes! Perfect for gift giving. At the holidays, friends actually request it ~ usually with the nut of their choice... LOL!
