Blueberry Strata

Reviewed: Dec. 2, 2012
Warning: I modified it based on other reviews! Took this to a brunch event and it was a big hit. I will keep it on my list of favorite recipes! Used just one 8oz package of cream cheese mixed with 1 tsp of vanilla. Put lots of little blobs of cream cheese all over (tedious!). Added a couple of shakes of cinnamon and more vanilla to the egg/milk mixture. I used Italian bread (because the French bread at the store seemed like it would end up mushy, and the Italian was denser). I also failed to see the "chill overnight" when I read the recipe, so, I made it and popped straight in the oven! Used fresh blueberries. The syrup was FABULOUS! I'm going to make homemade syrup all the time from now on! (I used 1 cup sugar instead of 1-1/2) and it was plenty sweet.)

Slow Cooker Butter Chicken

Reviewed: Apr. 3, 2012
Good recipe! I didn't have cardamom pods nor tandoori masala (used 4 tsp of garam masala instead), and it was fine. Served with white rice. Will put this in the Indian food craving rotation :) Cooked it just under six hours on high, but there's not enough volume in this recipe to tolerate that many hours on high (mine was burnt around the edges -- wasn't home to adjust).

Grilled Salmon I

Reviewed: Sep. 4, 2011
Scrumptious! Followed recipe other than using olive oil, and regular pepper because I didn't have lemon pepper. Everyone gobbled it up! Definitely added to the rotation :)

After-Thanksgiving Turkey Soup

Reviewed: Dec. 2, 2010
Love this soup! Followed all the ingredients and also followed some recommendations from previous reviewers: added more carrots and celery, used egg noodles instead of rice, and added more herbs for flavor. Also added in a can of peas! Ultimate comfort soup, definitely on my favorites list :)

Baked Ziti I

Reviewed: Apr. 6, 2010
True comfort food -- easy to make, yummy to eat, not very seasoned. If you like more flavor, add more herbs and spices, maybe use some sausage. Recommended recipe!

Chicken Tikka Masala

Reviewed: Mar. 8, 2010
Loved this! Followed the recipe pretty closely (sometimes I don't measure perfectly), used half the black pepper, half the jalapeno, and cut down the salt and then used kosher salt instead of table salt. Put a dollop of plain yogurt on each plate to cut the spice -- that was well-received. Made extra chicken and doubled the sauce recipe: two adults, a teenager and an 11-year-old polished off every morsel! Kids both requested that we have this again. Definitely a keeper!

Mulligatawny Soup I

Reviewed: Sep. 22, 2009
Our family loves this recipe! I usually follow the recipe exactly the first time before fiddling with it... and it's delightful as is! My girls ask for it (17 and 11) and the older one requests more curry. I have mistakenly omitted the celery and it was fine. The apples add something special and if you've left them out, please try it with them! Thank you for this recipe, Lise!

This recipe has been one of our traditional holiday side-dishes for now our 4th year! Add those eggs, sour cream and the water from the corn and you are all set with a yummy bit of comfort! Simple and delicious!

Slow Cooker Adobo Chicken

Reviewed: Jan. 6, 2002
This was *very* easy and quite tasty! I added 1 cup of water (per another reviewer's suggestion), and I'm glad I did. Also, I added sugar (to taste) to the sauce (after chicken was finished cooking). The sauce wasn't too runny but I was prepared to add cornstarch to thicken it a bit. This one's a keeper!
