Orzo and Shrimp Salad with Asparagus

Reviewed: Jun. 18, 2007
Fantastic dish! I used whole 90-110 count shrimp, rather than cutting up the larger, more expensive extra large size. The dressing is light, yet flavorful. It received rave reviews at our Father's Day cookout. I'll definitely be making this again.

Smothered Mexican Lasagna

Reviewed: Feb. 7, 2007
I really liked this recipe -- all the ingredients were in my pantry/fridge and it was simple to put together. Being in a hurry to get dinner on the table, I followed the directions exactly when putting together the meat sauce rather than reading previous reviews as usual. I was somewhat alarmed by the amount of liquid in the pot, and rushed to the computer to see if anyone else had commented. During the time it took to read enough reviews to realize that I was going to have to "drain and re-season", the sauce had been simmering long enough to evaporate most of the unwanted liquid. The result was a nicely seasoned turkey mixture that tasted great in the final dish. I only added a bit a dried green chile pepper to the ricotta/egg mixture and some shredded Mexican cheese to the top. My family raved -- well mostly. My oldest ground-meat hating daughter wished it had shredded beef, which I will try soon. Thanks for the recipe!

Pork Chop and Potato Casserole

Reviewed: Dec. 4, 2002
This recipe was extremely easy and flavorful. I sauteed pork loin chops in olive oil and seasoned with Mrs. Dash -- sliced the potatoes and onions thin on the mandolin and used the roasted garlic cream of mushroom. In addition to the cheese, I used french fried onions -- the new cheesy kind. That was really the crowning touch. I also see no reason why this recipe could not be used in the crockpot. I'm going to try it next time.

Turtle Cheesecake

Reviewed: Aug. 27, 2002
This cheesecake is to die for! The flavors blend beautifully and the texture is smooth. I've yet to have it crack. I try to keep all the ingredients on hand for an impromptu dessert.

Charley's Slow Cooker Mexican Style Meat

Reviewed: Aug. 27, 2002
My husband is addicted to this meat. I make it almost weekly and we use it in everything ... nachos, burritoes, salad, soup, etc. It freezes very well for a quick meal.

Zucchini Patties

Reviewed: Aug. 27, 2002
I thought these were good, although my children didn't care for the amount of red pepper. I'll try again and tweak the spices.

Vanilla Ice Cream IV

Reviewed: Aug. 27, 2002
I thought this was the best homemade ice cream ever. Very creamy and almost custard like. The texture remained smooth -- even after I froze the leftovers in another container. I'm going to try with white chocolate pudding next time.

The Best Taco Dip

Reviewed: Aug. 27, 2002
I love this version of layered dip. It's definitely the best one around ... and I think I've made them all! I use refried beans with sausage for extra flavor.

Easy to make and very flavourful. A big hit with the men. These also freeze rather well after baked.

Ham and Fresh Basil Pinwheels

This recipe is great. I served them at a bridal shower and everyone was so impressed. A little pricey, but absolutely worth every penny.

Ultimate Breakfast Casserole

Reviewed: Aug. 27, 2002
Good flavor, but the overall consistency was too runny. Next time I will cut the sour cream in half and omit the butter. Also, I used potatoes o'brien (w/onion & peppers) instead of regular hash browns.
