Quiche Lorraine II

Reviewed: May 2, 2011
My husband's dad owned a popular restaurant in the Boston area, so he grew up with really good food. This is one of the rare times he told me 'it was delicious'. I did make some minor adjustments: added mushrooms, used center cut bacon and added a maybe 1/8 C Mexican cheese (queso quesadilla, asadero, manchego cheeses).

Pumpkin Cheesecake

Reviewed: Nov. 27, 2010
I double-checked the recipe to see if I did something wrong because although this cheesecake was ok, it did not get 4 or 5 stars from anyone who tried it. As I said it was just ok.

Grandma Johnson's Scones

Reviewed: Jun. 20, 2010
Pretty good. They seemed a bit salty so next time I will add less salt (I did use a tiny bit less sugar and thought I decreased the salt enough). I sprinkled brown sugar and cinnamon on top. I looked for cinnamon chips but could not find any. Also would definitely add raisins or something, but I did not have any on hand.

Penne Pasta with Spinach and Bacon

Reviewed: Jun. 18, 2010
None of us were overly excited about this recipe, though I think the pan was too hot for the garlic and it turned a bit brown despite having immediately removed the pan from the heat source.

'Pretty good' is how my super picky husband described these burgers!

Baked Salmon II

Reviewed: Mar. 6, 2010
My guests did not say they liked this nor did they say they didn't like it. When no one comments on a meal I take that as "we don't really like it." I myself thought the recipe was mediocre, but the salmon was previously frozen so it was a bit dry. It would have probably tasted better if the fish were moist and flaky.

Slow Cooker Pulled Pork

Reviewed: Mar. 4, 2010
I was nervous after reading the review about rating the actual recipe (which I agree is a valid point). We found this recipe very good. I wasn't sure when to add the BBQ sauce so just did it at the same time as the root beer. We served it with the left-over root beer (to drink) to complement the meal. Also served baked french fries and steamed veggies for a quick easy yummy meal. My picky 3 year old even liked it.

Seasoned Cornish Hens

Reviewed: Feb. 23, 2010
This was an easy recipe with pretty good flavor but nothing to write home about. In all fairness, I did not have oyster sauce so used Hoisin Sauce based on another review. I only had 1/4 low sodium soy sauce and used 4 cloves of garlic. I likely would not make again.
