Polenta with Rosemary and Parmesan

Reviewed: Oct. 13, 2011
This is a good side. I had cornmeal mix, so I left out the salt and it was perfect. I always forget I have to bake polenta, but it definitely needed it. I served it with the Braised Pork Ragu and enjoyed it.

Braised Pork Ragu

Reviewed: Oct. 13, 2011
This was a restaurant-quality entree. I used pork tenderloin and did not have carrots. I served it over the Rosemary Parmesan Polenta on this site and it was truly fantastic. I will also try serving it with pasta, mashed potatoes or rice. Fantastic!

Yummy Honey Chicken Kabobs

Reviewed: Oct. 5, 2011
4.5 Stars: I marinated 2 lbs. chicken tenders for 2 days. It was a good marinade. I made another 1/2 batch of marinade/sauce for basting. One day I will master grilling tenders without drying them out, although I did do better this time. I served this with yellow rice, but think a fried rice or Asian-type side would be better.

Grilled Lemon Herb Pork Chops

Reviewed: Oct. 4, 2011
I used one pork tenderloin (one, not a package of two) and kept it whole. It marinated for 1.5 days and was fantastic. It was such a wonderful change from typical pork tenderloin recipes. I served it with roasted quartered, baby red potatoes that I roasted along with the pork. Truly delicious.

Crispy Oven-Roasted Rosemary Chicken with Sausage and Potatoes

Reviewed: Oct. 3, 2011
4.5 Stars: I prepped earlier in the day, then baked for dinner. The potatoes had browned even though the dish was covered, so in the future I would not add them until right before baking. I think I baked it too long, too, because the chicken was a bit dry. I used no oil during frying. I browned the sliced brats first, then added a little water to the browned bits in the pan for the chicken and potatoes. This gave the chicken a delicious flavor. Chicken broth or wine would have worked well for this as well. It's a great Octoberfest recipe. My husband thinks saurkraut would have been a great side.

Honey-Spice Acorn Squash

Reviewed: Oct. 3, 2011
4.5 Stars, but I do not understand why the recipe calls for making twice as much squash as needed. I did like the honey mixture just as well as the regular brown sugar mix I had been using and it's probably healthier. I used an entire recipe of filling for 2 squash (4 halves).

German Leek and Potato Soup

Reviewed: Oct. 2, 2011
4.5 Stars, only because I do not like all of it pureed. I will leave more chunks next time. I used 2 leeks instead of 1 cup and russet potatoes. I used 2 cans chicken broth and finished with water to 6 cups. I did not have a ham bone and used 2 TBS ham base and a sprinkling of dry thyme. I also used light cream to reduce calories. My daughter who thought she hates leeks ate it, then I told her it was leeks. She was surprised.

Smoky Grilled Pork Chops

Reviewed: Sep. 29, 2011
I used boneless loin chops that were probably 2" thick. I marinated overnight and the flavor was great. The only complaint was the some had some "gritty" pieces from the rub. I did not personally have this problem. Great flavor.

Pepperoni Crisps

Reviewed: Sep. 28, 2011
I always pick the crispy pepperoni off pizza, saw this and thought it would be good. It was great. I only had turkey pepperoni, but it was healthier.

Stuffed Shells III

Reviewed: Sep. 28, 2011
Fantastic! The shells are hard to find here, but we found them at WalMart. I halved the cheese mixture, which stuffed 12 shells. I even let them sit in the fridge stuffed (but not with sauce) a day before cooking.

Tenderloin with Cherry Sauce

Reviewed: Sep. 22, 2011
4.5 Stars: A great Fall dish. I had to use dried cranberries because I had those on hand. I also used a "cherry butter" which is much like preserves. My husband and I enjoyed this and I was surprised the pork was so tender. I served with mashed potatoes.

Easy Flat Iron Steak in Wine Sauce

Reviewed: Sep. 6, 2011
I give this a 4, but my family gives it a 2. I used a 1.5 lb. flat iron steak and left out the mushrooms. I used a good pinot noir and the sauce was good. My only issue was the seasoning practically blackened and became somewhat gritty.

Totally Tangy Baked French Fries

Reviewed: Sep. 5, 2011
These were very greasy and never became crispy, even after cooking longer. I eventually had to fry them, which is what I was trying to avoid. I gave it 2 stars because I think the spice mix is tasty, but do recommend reducing the oil.

Buttermilk Salad

Reviewed: Sep. 5, 2011
The peach jello dominated and this was not an overall success. We decided if there is a pineapple jello (?), that would be better.

Creamy Cheesy Grits

Reviewed: Sep. 5, 2011
I thought these were fantastic, but some of the family did not care for the strong parmesan flavor. I will probably substitute for the parmesan next time, but this is very easy and tasty.
