Easy Yet Romantic Filet Mignon

Reviewed: Apr. 30, 2008
Easy, quick, basic and delicious. I made it for my boyfriend who really likes simple type cooking and he loved this. So did I. I might try it with melted butter instead of olive oil next time. Thank you!

Bay Scallop Chowder

Reviewed: Apr. 24, 2008
I am shocked this does not have more reviews. I love this. Ive made it about 10 times in the past 2 years and all the time it comes out delicious. Everyone who loves seafood just wolfs it down. Even those who are not wild about seafood and mushrooms have admitted its delicious. I often add extra scallops and / or mushrooms and it always turns out great. I intend to try it with shrimp and maybe lobster. I serve with crust fench bread for dipping. The hardest part is the chopping (tedious and time consuming because you want the veggies sliced up as small as possible) and the pureeing because I always do it when the veggies are warm and it gets hot and the mixture is thick but its not really a complicated recipe, just time consuming for a novice cook such as myself.

Pear Bundt Cake

Reviewed: Feb. 28, 2010
This is my new favorite cake. I'm crazy about pears and I love the lightness of this cake and the fact thats its not as fatty and full of calories as many cakes. I agree with the comparison to angel food cake but its lighter and more subtle than angel food in my opinion. What I really like to do when I make this cake is peal and slice a ripe fresh Bartlett pear and lay the slices on the bottom of the bundt pan. Ive made this cake in bundt and just a regular 9 x 13 and both ways have their virtues but I prefer the bundt method. Everyone who I have fed this too raves about it, even those who don't have much of a sweet tooth.

One Pot Tuna Casserole

Reviewed: Dec. 28, 2009
I gave this 5 stars. How could I not? Its a great base. I added salt, pepper, paprika and Worcestershire sauce to the cheese / tuna soup mixture. I also changed the milk to sour cream and added 2 cans of tuna. Oh and I went a little heavy on the cheese. I made this all on the stove top and instructed but then when I was 'done" I transferred it to a casserole pan and covered the top with seasoned breadcrumbs and baked it at 400 for like 25 mins. It came out so tasty and my boyfriend loves it. I have another tuna casserole recipe and honestly its more work and maybe just a little better but it has mushrooms and my boyfriend hates them so he wont eat my original recipe but this one was great since it just had the soup and no additional mushrooms. Although I think you could definitely throw a little can of them in here if you wanted. My only complaint was there really seemed to be a lot of noodles not much "sauce" when I was initially putting it together but after assembling it and baking it it came out just perfect. I suppose if you really want more moisture you could do extra soup / milk and cheese but I wouldn't, this was perfect as was!

Chicken Sherry

Reviewed: Jan. 19, 2008
I made this for my boyfriend and my roommate. I used mozzarella cheese and less greenbeans than it called for because thta's what I had on hand. The BF and roomie LOVED it, we ate the entire pan. They had one suggestion though...adding bacon. Which I intend to try next time in addition to using less mayo. It had a unique but not to scary or exotic flavor but a full cup of mayo is just a bit much for me so I would add maybe haf a cup the next time. All and all this is a winner.

Hot and Sour Chicken and Cabbage Soup

Reviewed: Aug. 28, 2010
This is delicious! And easy to prepare. So tasty! I omit the fish sauce and lemon grass and I have used vegetable broth instead of chicken and added extra cabbage and sprouts. Thank you for sharing this awesome recipe.

Dreamy Fruit Dip

Reviewed: Oct. 2, 2008
My god this is delicious. I did use the butter, because I love rich buttery flavors but I also added a bit more marshmallow cream and it was so amazingly tasty. I had it with pears, apples, bananas and strawberries and everything was good. Especially yummy with the pears! I will make this again.

Sarah's Applesauce

Reviewed: Jan. 28, 2011
Great recipe! So easy too! I made it for 2 (mine was 198 calories for a nice sized serving) instead of 4....used braeburn apples and added extra cinnamon, half white and half brown sugar plus a pinch of cloves, a splash of vanilla extract and a shot of brandy...turned out amazing. Total keeper.

Chicken Stuff

Reviewed: May 7, 2008
Easy to make and deicious. Its VERY buttery but honestly I like that in a comfort food (no one is thinking this is health food right?). I think this is an easy inexpensive and delicious way to feed a few hungry people. The only thing that gets tedious is the stirring because the pasta is thrown in uncooked and has to totally soften and cook while you nearly break your wrist stirring but when you taste this it is so worth it!

I added spices when I cooked the chicken but this is lackluster at best....

World's Best Lasagna

Reviewed: Mar. 9, 2009
Ive never made a lasagna before because Ive always heard how hard it was but I decided to give this one a go for sunday dinner with my boyfriend and parents. I followed the recipe exactly (used all the sugar and salt which I was worried about after reading the reviews) except for adding one thing...a few pinches of nutmeg to the ricotta cheese mixture but other than that I followed ecery instruction and it turned out amazing! I mean just wonderful. My parents and boyfriend loved it. My mom, who is not big on pasta or red sauced loved it and told me how delicious it was several times (shes not big on compliments either s it was pretty amazing) and my step dad and boyfriend ate 2 pieces each. I didnt have any problem with the ground beef and sausage mixture being to heavy but that said; I didnt use all the red sauce I made. I had maybe 2-3 cups left over and I put it in a gladwear to be reheated and eaten over pasta in the next day or 2. Was this a lot of work? Kinda...because I don't normally make things that take this long to prepare but the steps themselves were not hard...just time consuming in an easy sort of way (how hard is stirring or waiting to take the tinfoil off something? not very) but I feel it was worth my time and now after making this once I feel like I could bang out a 2nd one no problem. Mine turned out just as good as something from The Olive Garden!

Artichoke Chicken

Reviewed: Jul. 10, 2010
I had mixed feeling on this. First off its easy and pie to make, very simple and I love that. I used half mayo / half reduced fat sour cream because I don't like mayo...to heavy and fatty for me. I kind of wished I would have used miracle whip but I was scared to deviate from the recipe too much but the mayo was very heavy, veryyyyyy heavy even with only half. My boyfriend who loves heavier eating even said it was a bit much. But it was GOOD. We did both devour it, the heaviness kinda hits you after though. I also used frozen artichoke hearts, which was yummy. I would make this again but I would do a bit differently, it was wayyy to bland so I would season the chicken first and do 80 / 20 sour cream and mayo. A keeper, but needed doctoring for us...

Grilled Garlic Artichokes

Reviewed: Apr. 25, 2010
Perfect! Mine boiled up s green and pretty and because it was cold and I don't really have a grill I did the grilling part on my George Forman grill...turned out fabulously. My boyfriend complained that there was no butter be he somehow managed to eat quite a bit and really enjoy these artichokes...so did I and I didn't miss butter or (gag) mayo at all.

Apple Spice Cake

Reviewed: Dec. 28, 2009
This cake turned out amazing! It was so moist and delicious and really easy to make, the hardest part was peeling ans slicing the apples. I skipped the raisins and confectioners sugar and baked it in a regular rectangular pan and it still came out so delicious. This is my go to cake recipe now.

Simply Lemon Baked Chicken

Reviewed: Apr. 25, 2010
This recipe is an excellent base for how to roast a chicken, I followed it but added a few things of my own. I stuff with lemons and oranges, baste very often with a chicken stock, white wine and honey mixture, went heavy on the paprika and sea salt rub and glazed with honey at the end....it turned out delicious! Falling off the bone tender and infused with a nice citrus flavor that was neither to faint or too intense. Really loved the honey on the skin, it was just so delicious and amazingly easy to do...btw...I've never roasted or dressed a whole chicken until this recipe!

Apple Spice Dump Cake

Reviewed: Feb. 28, 2010
For me this cake was just way to sweet and buttery, overkill...if you know what I mean but my parents loved it. My stepdad actually ate so much my mom asked me not to make it for a while...they loved it but it was just too much. The recipe is sound but I think the apple pie filling just makes it too much. Also the mix of spices was strong and dark which made the cake not to pretty to look at, which I can definately overlook so to speak if the taste is amazing and this just is not...its ok. I might tweak it and try again....

Rum Cake I

Reviewed: Jan. 9, 2010
Great recipe, easy and delicious. I omitted the nuts and used Myers rum and french vanilla pudding mix. I've made chocolate rum cake before...no glaze though so this was basically a first for me and it was so easy. The cake is very rum flavored but its not to much, although there is a lot of that flavor....its just perfect.

Lime Pear Gelatin Salad

Reviewed: Jun. 28, 2009
I made this and it was amazingly delicious and so easy to do. Its the perfect light summer dessert. I used strawberry jello because I didnt have lime and I also used full fat cream cheese (probably a little more like 6 ounces, not 3) and this was so tasty. Mine was set and ready to eat after 2 and a half hours. This is definitely a new favorite for its great taste and easy prep.
