Caesar Salad Supreme

Reviewed: Apr. 22, 2011
Not your classic Caesar salad, but delicious nonetheless. I didn't have anchovy, so I used kalamata olives. The croutons are a delight! This one's a keeper. Just writing about it is making me hungry.

Mr. Head's Spicy Tuna Melt

Reviewed: Apr. 22, 2011
This is hands down the best tuna melt on the planet. The flavors are spectacular! Husband is a bit leery of tuna, but this one rocked his world! Mine, too. Prepared exactly as written.

Chicken Encilantrada

Reviewed: Apr. 3, 2011
I love this dish. My husband loves this dish. I quartered a Cornish game hen and seared the pieces on both sides for about 5 minutes per side. Then added the remaining ingredients. Simmered on medium-low heat for about 20 minutes, then low for another 10. Served over rice. My husband raved with every bite. This one's a keeper!

Dutch Apple Pie with Oatmeal Streusel

Reviewed: Mar. 25, 2011
Very tasty and well worth the effort. I made my own pie crust, and after mixing the sugar mixture with the apples (I used granny smith), I let it all simmer slowly in a covered pan on the stove for about 15 minutes before filling the pie crust. Also baked it the whole time at 425. That was a mistake, but a serendipitous one. The family loved it.

Chris' Bay Area Burger

Reviewed: Feb. 8, 2011
Tremendous, delicious, and thoroughly satisfying! The meat was juicy and the garlic and basil were a treat to the palate. Only changes I made were to add some finely chopped green onion to the mix, and I fried them on the stove in a stainless steel pan. (about 5 minutes per side). Melted cheddar on top right before serving. Served on a toasted wheat roll spread with crumbled bacon and cream cheese spread. MMMMMM! Next time I think I'll garnish with fresh mozzarela, tomato and spinach leaves. No more boring burgers in this household!

Bianca's Green Chile Pork

Reviewed: Oct. 31, 2010
This recipe is one of this family's favorites! It's a bit mild for us as written, so I usually add a bit of jalepeno pepper for some extra kick. It smells great while cooking, freezes beautifully, and makes my husband happy every time I serve it. Yay Bianca! You've got a winner!

Tangy Chicken Fajitas

Reviewed: Aug. 10, 2010
Awesome! Fresh, tangy, delicious! I cooked it a hot wok. Instead of marinating a yellow onion, I used freshly sliced green onion as garnish. Sour cream seasoned with chopped basil was a lovely dressing, as was the fresh mozzarella I served on the side. There's lots of room for creativity here. Maybe a little feta and kalamata olives in a spinach wrap? mmmmmmmm :-)

Skillet Meatloaf

Reviewed: Aug. 10, 2010
I love the cooking method, but this is some of the most bland meatloaf I have ever tasted. It was more like an oversized hamburger patty. Next time I'll punch it up with honey, diced jalepeno, and dark mustard.

This is a good biscuit recipe. I follow the directions to the letter and get a good batch every time. They freeze well, too.

Mushroom Soup Without Cream

Reviewed: May 26, 2010
I make this soup quite often and it's always a hit. I cook it as written. Great with garlic bread and a nice chianti.

The Best Lemon Bars

Reviewed: May 26, 2010
The tangy topping with that buttery sweet crust is a mouthful of heaven. Easy peasy to make, too. Follow directions exactly. I'll be making this one a lot!

Hudson's Baked Tilapia with Dill Sauce

Reviewed: May 17, 2010
Positively delicious! The kick of the Cajun seasoning on the fish is the perfect counterpoint to the cool, creamy dill sauce. I made it exactly as written, and feel no need for change; just keep in mind that ovens vary so cooking times may vary. This one is definitely a keeper!

Bacon and Potato Soup

Reviewed: Dec. 13, 2009
This is an outstanding soup! It's hard to find a good potato soup that doesn't use milk/cream or flour/cornstarch, but this more than fits the bill! Both my husband and I loved it! With a glass of chianti and some warm, crusty bread, it's the perfect warm up at the end of a cold day. I cooked to the recipe, though I used some of the bacon drippings rather than olive oil to saute the onion, carrots and celery. The cayenne pepper sets off the veggies and bacon beautifully. 1/8th tsp is perfect. Easy to make, quick, and tastes good the next day, too. This one is an instant classic in our home!

Simple Beef Flavored Gravy

Reviewed: Dec. 15, 2008
My husband declared this the best thing to come from my kitchen. I cut up leftover pot roast into the gravy and served it over a bed of rice. Wonderfully flavorful, it's even better the next day.

Cream of Fresh Asparagus Soup I

Reviewed: Dec. 7, 2008
Not having tamari, I used 1 Tbsp soy sauce, otherwise cooked it exactly as posted. It was wonderful, a delight to all the senses. Afterward, though, my husband said, "Wouldn't it taste great with some clams thrown in." Perhaps it was the second tablespoon of soy that left it wanting... No worries; I'll be playing with this recipe again quite soon. Suggested: combine butter, garlic and fresh basil then spread on a french roll. Toast until edges are brown and serve promptly. Didn't have any, but a nice Chianti would be perfect!

Asparagus Wrapped in Crisp Prosciutto

Reviewed: Sep. 15, 2007
This is a delightful side dish or appetizer. It was easier to make and cooked better when I tore the proscuitto in strips then wrapped the asparagus. Even the four-year-olds love their veggies with this recipe.

Lamb Chops with Balsamic Reduction

Reviewed: Mar. 10, 2007
Incredible! Superb! Truly a gastronomic treat! My husband wasn't too keen on the idea of lamb, but after he ate this, he went out and bought more lamb so I could make it again. This one's a keeper!!!
