Buttermilk Pancakes II

Reviewed: Jun. 10, 2012
Mmmm, these pancakes are PERFECT! I have long searched for a buttermilk pancake recipe that is just right, and this is the one. It will be my go-to from now on. They were tender, flavorful, and cooked perfectly. I did not make any modifications.

Shrimp, Broccoli, and Sun-dried Tomatoes Scampi with Angel Hair

Reviewed: May 15, 2012
I made some modifications based on others' reviews, and I thought this dish was very tasty! I used 4 cloves garlic, only half a stick of butter (it didn't look like this would be enough, but it was plenty and did not make the pasta greasy), added some dried oregano, salt, pepper, and onion powder, and 8 oz sliced mushrooms. I also topped it with lots of freshly grated Pecorino Romano cheese. I liked it very much! I will make it again.

Asian Lettuce Wraps

Reviewed: Feb. 21, 2012
Pretty good! I think this will be even better tomorrow after the flavors have "mingled."

Cream of Cauliflower Soup I

Reviewed: Dec. 7, 2011
I was hoping this recipe would get pretty close to some cream of cauliflower soup I had at a restaurant recently. It was good, but still needs a little... something to be like the one I had. I'll keep tweaking!

Chicken Pot Pie IX

Reviewed: Oct. 29, 2011
I thought this was yummy! I added a couple of cloves of garlic to the onion mixture, added a pinch of cayenne, and substituted corn for the celery (I hate celery!). I also grated some cheddar cheese onto the crust and baked it on. Good stuff!

Kafta (BBQ)

Reviewed: Oct. 7, 2011
It was really good! I gave it 4 stars because it needed a little more spice. I only used 1 lb. of meat because that's what I had, but I still basically doubled the allspice, and I added about 1/2 tsp. ground coriander, another traditional spice used in kafta. Most kafta recipes include coriander--not sure why this one did not.

Yummy Veal Meat Loaf

Reviewed: Sep. 30, 2011
I thought this was delicious! I made it almost as written, except without an egg, since I was out. I didn't taste the carrots at all, so it might be a good way to sneak them in with kids. Yum!

Savory Grilled Potatoes

Reviewed: Jul. 4, 2011
Delicious! I didn't use the mayo and did add an extra clove of garlic. I also drizzled with olive oil instead of butter. They were fabulous! I'm glad we made extra. :)

Peach Crisp III

Reviewed: Jun. 23, 2011
DELICIOUS! I had two peaches in the house as well as a ton of black raspberries from my yard, so I made a 1/3 peach, 2/3 black raspberry crisp. It is out of this world! The peaches and black raspberries go so well together--way better than red raspberries. I also did not have the granola, but I used extra oats and flour. I wish I had some vanilla ice cream to go with it! I will definitely make this one again.

Mom's Buttermilk Pancakes

Reviewed: Mar. 15, 2011
I liked this a lot, but my pancakes were quite salty (perhaps I'm just sensitive to it--I don't know). I will definitely make these again, but will cut down on the salt next time! They were nice and fluffy. My husband thought they were delicious.

Grilled Delmonico Steaks

Reviewed: Jan. 23, 2011
The flavor might have been really great if it weren't for the SALT! Holy cow! Between the soy sauce and the steak seasoning, it really doesn't need any more. My husband ate his steak, but mine was basically inedible.

Cranberry Baklava

Reviewed: Oct. 21, 2009
This was easy and delicious, and everyone devoured it! I followed others' suggestions and cut the honey with a little water to make a thinner syrup. I will be making this again soon!

Cheesy Sausage Zucchini Casserole

Reviewed: Oct. 11, 2009
I thought this was good, but not great. Like others, I used real cheese (fresh mozzarella) instead of processed cheese. I also used fresh mushrooms instead of canned, orzo instead of rice (and I added more than what is called for), and half a red bell pepper since I happened to have it in my fridge. It might be better after it has sat in the fridge overnight... we'll see. Not bad, but it didn't take my breath away.

Hot Peanut Sauce

Reviewed: Jun. 28, 2009
MMM MMM MMM!! So good, and such a great consistency. I didn't have regular peanut butter, so I used what I had-- one of those new peanut butter and honey mixtures. I also added some ginger paste and a little bit of fresh minced garlic. It was WONDERFUL! I doubled the recipe and poured over pasta with sauteed carrots, mushrooms, garlic and green onions cooked with some ginger paste and Thai red curry paste. SO GOOD!!

Chicken Satay with Homemade Peanut Sauce

Reviewed: Jun. 28, 2009
I didn't use this sauce recipe (maybe next time!) but the chicken was AWESOME! I only had time to marinate it for about 30 minutes, but it still had a ton of flavor and was super moist and juicy. I'll definitely make the chicken again, though... no question!

Peach Cobbler VI

Reviewed: Jun. 18, 2009
This was really yummy! I am only deducting a star because I like a more cobbler-y crust rather than a cake-like one, but the flavor was most excellent. I changed just a few things, some on purpose, some by accident. On purpose, I used more fruit than the recipe called for, and I used both blueberries and FRESH peaches. I added a bit of brown sugar and cinnamon to the fruit to get the juices going, and I decreased the baking powder by 1/2 tsp. to reduce the cakeiness. By accident, I didn't use the butter! My brain skipped over that part when I was reading the recipe, and I did not realize my mistake until the cobbler was done. I tasted it and, honestly, it was absolutely delicious WITHOUT ANY OF THE BUTTER! I'll try it with the butter next time (because butter makes everything better!), but if you want a lower fat, lower cholesterol version, the taste is still magnificent without all the butter! That should make this cobbler earn its fifth star back :)

Butter Flaky Pie Crust

Reviewed: Jun. 30, 2008
This crust was fabulous and SOOO easy! It is my first real pie crust... in the past, I've just worked with pre-made crusts. I was nervous about it coming out correctly, but if you just make sure to keep everything cold and don't handle it too much, everything will be just fine! Easy as "pie"! Oh, and it holds its shape very well if you are using cookie cutter shapes for your top crust :)

Baked Fresh Cherry Pie

Reviewed: Jun. 30, 2008
Ahh, so good! I actually had about 1.5 cups of black raspberries from my yard, so I combined those with 2.5 cups of cherries and it was WONDERFUL! I used the "Butter Flaky Pie Crust" from this site, and ahh... so yummy!

Cheddar Pudding

Reviewed: Apr. 26, 2008
MMM! So good! My husband raved about it! I didn't have any nutmeg or sherry, so I improvised a bit: I substituted the nutmeg for a high-quality cinnamon (Penzey's), and added just a pinch of cayenne pepper and a few dashes of hot sauce. Also, I didn't have enough of one kind of cheese to cover the whole thing, so I used a combo of white and regular cheddar. It was FABULOUS! I think the tiny bit of heat in the background adds a lot. I think it would be even better with a firmer bread, though. Great twist on bread pudding! :)
