Creamy Clam Dip

Reviewed: Feb. 6, 2011
This is a great clam dip recipe. I hadn't had clam dip for years and stumbled across this recipe a few weeks ago. I've made it for the last two football weekend parties and, by popular demand serving it up a third time for Super Bowl 45. I added one additional can of drained clams. When mixing in the clam juice, I liked the consistency reached by adding not quite one full can of the clam juice. A few dashes of Tabasco was also added. Love this recipe.

Chicago-Style Hot Dog

Reviewed: Jan. 16, 2011
I'm from Chicago. I served these (using Hebrew National franks as Vienna are not available in VA) while watching the Bears game on 1/16/11. Bears won to advance to NFC championship game. Was it the CS hot dogs that brought some luck to the outcome? Not sure but it sure didn't hurt. This recipe is the real deal! Followed the recipe to the T (T formation, Bears, get it?) but used pepperoncini's. We all raved about how awesome/authentic these dogs are. Go Bears, Go Cubs!!!

Chicken Cacciatore with Chorizo

Reviewed: Jan. 9, 2011
Wow. What a satisfying dish! Very well proportioned ingredients, nicely layered tiers of flavors and a true contender for the textbook definition of comfort food! This is a recipe that is easy to make yet transforms into a savory pot of deliciousness as though the cook labored long hours in the kitchen. So my *5 Star* rating is based on the recipe as written as it is well balanced from ingredients thru preparation instruction. Now for my personal tweaks to an already wonderful recipe (hey, like any seasoned cook I like to play). I cut the chicken breasts in half in order to maximize the flavor from the bones, added approx. ½ c. red wine (ok, probably more but no one was looking); threw in a scant handful of coarsely chopped green olives (ripe olives would also be a good choice); after cooking, I took half of the chicken off the bone and folded thick shreds back into the Cacciatore; served over spaghetti; added red pepper flakes to my individual bowl and accompanied with the wine I used during cooking (a Spanish wine Castano Monastrell). Thanks for sharing Sarah. This is a keeper in my book!

Ham Loaf I

Reviewed: Dec. 19, 2010
This recipe is almost identical to our family recipe. Some variations include adding uncooked bacon strips across the top of the loaf, basting a simple sauce of a 1 can condensed tomato soup diluted with 1 1/2 -2 cans water, and serving with homemade or store-bought horseradish sauce (1 pt. whipped cream, mix in one bottle well drained horseradish). Delicious! One more thing, ground ham is not commonly available. You can buy a thick slice of ham and use your food processor to "grind" it into a nice ground ham texture.

Kickin' Collard Greens

Reviewed: Dec. 7, 2010
I've been making greens for years but something was missing. I defaulted to canned brand "Glory Mixed Greens" as they were pretty good (for canned) and quick. Then I found this recipe, tried it, loved it and made it again within a week. Easy, fairly quick (cooking time is somewhat lengthy) and tasty. Same flavors or at least pretty darn close to the canned but can't beat these fresh collards. The only change was I cooked them for about 1 1/4 hrs. Second time I made them I added a can of cannelloni beans. Pass the Red Rice and cornbread!

After-Thanksgiving Turkey Soup

Reviewed: Dec. 4, 2010
Really good soup and I would make it again with some tweaks. I found the flour to be way too much. I had cut it down by a few tablespoons but next time would easily cut it in half. I added freshly chopped parsley and corn. Overall a strong recipe but not quite worth 5 stars without some personal touches.

Sloppy Joes II

Reviewed: Dec. 1, 2010
Quick, easy and good. I doubled the recipe but substituted 1/4 c. of the ketchup with Heinz Chili sauce and served on whole wheat buns. Awesome!

Easy Bacon and Cheese Quiche

Reviewed: Nov. 14, 2010
Very good flavor combos. Proportions fit perfectly in the deep dish size pie plate. Home made crust is better and plenty of room to get creative with different ingredients.

Ooey Gooey Breakfast Rolls

Reviewed: Nov. 14, 2010
This recipe is fantastic! Great for the holidays or when you need something that can be made ahead of time for the next morning. Rather than full bread dough, look for pre-formed dough for rolls in the freezer section. The dough balls are perfect size and ready to put in the pan.

Brussels Sprouts with Bacon, Shallots, and Pine Nuts

Reviewed: Nov. 11, 2010
Good recipes for Brussels Sprouts are hard to find. Very good Brussels Sprouts recipes come along only when one stumbles across one and this recipe fits the later description. Absolutely delicious! With a nice mild bacon flavor, the shallots, garlic and rosemary impart a wonderfully different combination of flavors. When I saw this recipe, I thought for certain I would like it and was not disappointed. No changes were made and it came out perfect. This is a keeper and good enough for the Thanksgiving Day dinner table! Thanks Sarah!

Spicy Sausage and Rice Casserole

Reviewed: Nov. 8, 2010
This is a great recipe which I've made a version of for years. Easy, quick and delicious. Using Jimmy Dean hot sausage, instead of 28 oz. I use one 16 oz. roll, increase rice to 1 1/2 c., use 28 oz tomato sauce and approx 1 1/2-2 c. broth to compensate for additional rice (4 1/2 c. liquid all together including tomato sauce). Also, I sub the cayenne pepper for 2-3 T. Texas Pete which provides a nice tang to the dish.

Shiitake Angel Hair Pasta

Reviewed: Nov. 7, 2010
Delicious meal. Easy and quick to make. The 6 oz. of pasta called for in the recipe was not enough so I increased it and used the entire 1# box. Subsequently, I more than doubled the sauce. If adding all the sauce to the cooked pasta, the pasta will absorb the sauce. You might want to spoon the sauce over the pasta in the individual serving dishes so that the creaminess of the dish is preserved. We really loved this meal. The mushrooms and Parmesan provided a nice woody, nutty taste. This is a keeper.

Baked Salmon Fillets Dijon

Reviewed: Oct. 13, 2010
Fast, easy, delicious. I used plain panko bread crumbs and seasoned with Italian herbs. Next, I stirred into the panko crumbs a mixture of half butter and half olive oil. Lastly, before adding the bread crumb mixture to the fish (thick, fresh, not previously frozen belly cut), I baked the salmon for 15 minutes, adding the bread crumbs for the final 10 minutes or so of baking so that the crumbs wouldn't burn. Turned out great. Served with baked acorn squash and steamed broccoli.

Stuffed Artichokes

Reviewed: May 8, 2010
Very good recipe and as good if not better than what I've had in restaurants. I modified the recipe by using Italian seasoned panko breadcrumbs and also incorporated the reserved stems, finely chopped. Prior to cooking, I trimmed the artichokes leaves/stems. Next, I used a previous reviewers suggestion by steaming them for 30 minutes, then removed the inedible part of the choke, stuffed them and baked them in 1 inch of water in a 450 oven, covered for 30 minutes, removed the cover and baked for another 10 minutes. Delicious. Nice variations suggested by others include adding pine nuts and/or proscuitto.

Garlicky Baked Butternut Squash

Reviewed: Jan. 17, 2010
Ask yourself these questions: 1. Do you like squash? 2. Are you looking for a quick, easy recipe? 3. Does your main dish need a delicious side? Answering yes to these 3 questions should put you over the top to add this recipe to your collection and put it on the dinner table soon. This truly is a delicious, easy recipe. Best with roasted pork or poultry IMHO.
