Grilled Flat Iron Steak with Blue Cheese-Chive Butter

Reviewed: Mar. 13, 2010
This steak marinade was very tasty. It's my new favorite! I'm not a huge fan of blue cheese, but the butter was not bad. Although I made it with horseradish mashed potatoes, so I didn't really need the blue cheese-chive butter. I made everything as specified and cooked the steaks 5 mins on one side and then 4 mins on the other side. I did let them sit for more than 5 mins before cutting. It was wonderful.

French Toast Casserole

Reviewed: Nov. 12, 2011
This was very easy and tasty. Thanks for the recipe! I did make it up the night before and let it sit in the fridge overnight. I made it as described, and I didn't experience the 'eggy' taste others complained about. Be sure you use ALL the milk called for in the recipe - I believe this will avoid that eggy taste (I noticed one of the reviewers who had the eggy taste only used 2 cups milk). Be sure to dust with confectioner's sugar as the little extra sweetness really adds to the dish. I would also recommend adding a little bit of cinnamon to the egg/milk mixture - I am definitely going to do that next time I make this. I made this in a 13x9x2 dish and it baked up beautifully in 50 mins. My husband had 2 large servings and is looking forward to leftovers in the morning!

Garlic Prime Rib

Reviewed: Dec. 25, 2011
I wish I could give it more stars! I made a 6lb roast. I made the rub exactly as stated in the recipe. I made slits in my roast and rubbed it all over. I like to cook my meat at room temp, so I took it out of the fridge very early and rubbed it about 4 hours before cooking. I then cooked it just as stated in the recipe at 500 degrees for 20 mins. It didn't smoke or burn the rub - it was great. I then turned it down to 325 like the recipe states and cooked for 70 mins. It was at 125 degrees when I took it out of the oven. I let it rest for 20 mins and it was perfect! It was cooked to mid-rare just like we like it. My daughter who does not eat a lot of meat gobbled this up! The rub is divine - love the Thyme so much better than rosemary! This was my first time making a standing rib roast, and I was so nervous, but it came out perfect! Thanks so much for such an easy and wonderful recipe! For those that had trouble with the roast reaching temperature in the time suggested - I suggest you let your roast get to room temp first. I like to let it sit out for 4-6 hours before cooking. This allows for even cooking throughout and reduces the time in the oven as well.

Pork Medallions with Balsamic Vinegar and Capers

Reviewed: Jan. 10, 2012
Love it! Very gourmet yet very easy. I followed the recipe exactly and it was a big hit. Next time I will use fresh garlic (personal preference), but other that I will stick to the recipe. Thanks so much for sharing a wonderful recipe!

French Baguettes

Reviewed: Mar. 9, 2012
Wow - really good!! I didn't use a bread maker. I just dumped the water, flour, sugar, salt, and yeast in a mixing bowl. I did make sure the yeast got in the water, and I let it sit for about 10 mins. Then I mixed all together by hand to make the dough. I then turned it onto a floured surface and kneaded until no longer sticky. Followed the recipe exactly including the egg yolk wash. The texture is wonderful. I like soft bread, so this was perfect!! It didn't last long, but there was a piece left the 2nd day and it tasted like a croissant and was almost as light and airy!! Thank you so much for sharing. I never got bread right until now!! Will be making this often!!

al fresco Roasted Pepper and Asiago Chicken Sausage Frittata

Reviewed: Apr. 15, 2012
Very easy and tasty! I was not able to find the Roasted Pepper Asiago Chicken Sausage, so I used the Al Fresco Sundried Tomato Chicken Sausage. I think when I made it again I will only use 1/2 the package of sausage. That would be plenty for us! Thanks for the recipe!

Chili Rubbed Pork Tenderloin With Apricot Ginger Glaze

Reviewed: Sep. 20, 2011
Love this recipe! The sauce is outstanding! Thank you for sharing. I made everything as stated, but I had to broil the meat as I'm having grilling issues right now (and I used a garlic clove minced - don't like the powder). Can't wait to make it again but on the grill next time!! For anyone planning to make this you can broil it. I do it for 5 mins at a time and turn the meat at each 5 min interval. It took right about 15 mins for the tenderloin I was cooking and during the last 5 mins I brushed on the sauce. Be sure to have an instant read thermometer handy so you don't overcook it as each one will be different depending on thickness. Take the pork out when it reaches 150 and let sit for about 5 mins. Any longer it will overcook and be dry and tough.

Sweet Italian Chicken Sausage and Tortellini Soup

Reviewed: Apr. 18, 2012
We loved this recipe! Thank you Al Fresco! I did have to make some changes though. I didn't feel like there was enough broth for the amount of noodles, so I chose to double the broth (I used chicken base and water as I didn't have any homemade broth on hand). I used Sake for the wine as that is what I had open, and I have to say it was very nice! The flavor of the broth was so good!

Garlic Chicken Sausage and Summer Vegetable Saute

Reviewed: Apr. 20, 2012
This is a keeper! My store does not carry the garlic chicken sausage, so i used the Sundried Tomato. I also served it over rice instead of polenta. Everyone loved it and there was nothing left! Will definitely be making again and again. Thanks al fresco!!

Tropical Pork Chops

Reviewed: May 12, 2012
Thank you for sharing this wonderful recipe! My husband and I really enjoyed it. I was sure to caramelize the chops really well before I added the sauce. I replaced the water with the pineapple juice from the canned tidbits. I checked for doneness after 10 minutes of simmering, and my chops were ready to eat! I was so happy to, because they were smelling yummy! I served over rice. Next time I will use fresh pineapple!

Roasted Vegetable Orzo

Reviewed: Jun. 25, 2012
Really loved this recipe. Thank you for sharing! I made it without the asparagus simply because it wasn't on sale, but the dish was still so good. I also didn't want to throw wine down the drain, so I adjusted the cooking method for the orzo. I lightly toasted 1 cup of orzo in 2 tablespoons of butter and then added 1 1/4 cups water with a 1 teaspoon of chicken base and a 1/2 cup Sake. I brought that to a boil. Covered. Reduced the heat and let simmer for 15-20 mins until the liquid was absorbed. Then i added in the veges and the Parmesan. It was delish! I will be making it again and again and can't wait for asparagus to go on sale!

Apple Crisp II

Reviewed: Jul. 13, 2012
Delish! Thanks for sharing. This was really easy, and I had everything on hand. I had some apples I really need to use up and this was perfect. I halved the recipe because there are just 3 of us, but it disappeared right away. So it looks like I'll be making it again!

Grilled Steak Pinwheels

Reviewed: Sep. 6, 2011
Really liked this recipe. Thanks for sharing! The only thing I added was garlic. I put the mushrooms, green onions, basil, chives and garlic in the blender to chop it up finely. Spread that over the pounded meat and topped with the bacon. Then rolled it up and sliced. I brushed with Olive Oil and seasoned with salt and pepper and then placed in a very hot pan under the broiler for 2.5 mins each side. Gave it a nice sear on the meat and cooked to a mid rare. It was perfect! I served with Parmesan & Spinach Orzo.
