My Crab Cakes

Reviewed: Jun. 9, 2010
these were amazing! I just made these and it was my first time ever making crabcakes! I followed the instructions mostly.. I used whole grainy mustard instead of dry, and less crackers (may not need any next time).. used extra old bay like two small teaspoons.. maybe a little extra mayo since I really like it and I found that using a little extra mayo and mustard resulted in not having to dip in any sauce!! I fried them in half butter half oil and they blew me away!!! I made four large ones and I ate all four easily!!

Butter Roast Chicken

Reviewed: Jun. 10, 2010
I have made this at least 20 times it is my favorite!!! I use a whole chicken and baste it, and refrigerate any leftover pan sauce.. this tastes so elegant! you don't need the nutmeg or brown sugar if you don't have it..it still comes out incredible :) just use white sugar.. I make this when I want to impress someone. 5 years later it's still a favorite :)

Syracuse Salt Potatoes

Reviewed: Jul. 14, 2010
these didn't come out as I expected.. I used twice the amount of the salt too.. maybe my potatoes were too big? either way they just tasted like regular potatoes although the skin was a bit salty.. will not be making again..

Salmon with Dill

Reviewed: Jul. 26, 2010
I just made this. I followed the directions exactly except brushed mayo on the fish before spices.. I used garlic powder in addition to the others.. I should have used more salt because this was very bland. more salt would have made it better! I also chopped some onion and put that on top.. pretty good, will make again with more salt and more onion/garlic powder :)

Garlic Parmesan Orange Roughy

Reviewed: Aug. 17, 2010
this was delicious! I am only giving 4 stars because the topping overpowered the fish a little bit, but it was still tasty.. next time, I will use less of the mixture. I omitted the butter and didn't miss it. Next time (and there will be a next time) I will also omit the salt. I could also maybe use more garlic too

Roasted Garlic Cauliflower

Reviewed: Aug. 17, 2010
great way to eat veggies, although with all the cheese I feel not as healthy ;) which is ok.. I used garlic powder instead of real garlic and it came out great!

Pumpkin Cookies V

Reviewed: Oct. 29, 2010
I just made these! they melt in my mouth like nothing I have ever made. I added extra cinnamon, and some ginger and cloves. Also, I used half shortening and half butter. I also added some shortening and ginger and cinnamon to the frosting. I highly recommend these! on my way to eat my third and possibly fourth!! ** update! I found out today that if you add a little extra flour you can roll the cookies out in balls and the tops will stay smoother :) This was my best batch! I didn't use the shortening in the frosting this time and it stayed nice and soft. YAY for these cookies!

Orzo with Parmesan and Basil

Reviewed: Jan. 22, 2011
I have made this three times and it is incredible! I use extra cheese, about a whole head of pressed garlic, and instead of basil I use cilantro because I love it so much :)

Buffalo Style Chicken Pizza

Reviewed: Feb. 1, 2011
I just made this!! it is AMAZING!! I used a boboli thin crust that I pre-cooked for 8 min to make sure it wasn't mushy when done. I used ranch dressing instead of blue cheese because I like it more, and I only used about a little more than half a cup. I added red onion and additional cheddar cheese :) probably baked for 15 min so everything came together. OUT OF THIS WORLD!!

Barbequed Steelhead Trout

Reviewed: Feb. 25, 2011
Not really sure how this one is a 5 star. I made this exactly as written except I baked it in the oven. There was not really flavor and it was a little sweet which I didn't like. I ended up drizzling it with soy sauce. Didn't even eat the leftovers :( I had such high hopes for this one too. No more bbq fish.

Warm Dijon Potato Salad

Reviewed: Feb. 26, 2011
This is really tasty! I cut it in half, added lots of extra mayo and mustard (tripled?) and 4 cloves of pressed garlic, and one tablespoon of horseradish since I didn't have any onion. I added one hardboiled egg, but next time will add more. I overcooked my potatoes a little so it is like a blend of mashed potatoes and potato salad but so delicious none the less! enjoy

Marinated Wild Salmon

Reviewed: Feb. 28, 2011
This recipe is really flavorful and light, however I am only giving 4 stars because if left in the marinade for too long (6 hours-overnight) the lemon can cook the fish and then it will be overcooked. I marinaded mine for 2-3 hours and the cilantro really came through!! I followed the recipe except used cayenne instead of pepper flakes cause I didn't have them. I also didn't have the green onions so I may have used more garlic. I could have used less vinegar, but it came out tasty! I also used double the cilantro.

Greek Honey Cake

Reviewed: Apr. 7, 2011
this came out just as amazing as I thought it would! I added lemon zest instead of orange. I cut the syrup recipe by half and I used mostly honey and about a quarter of the white sugar. Added like 2-3 tablespoons of lemon juice to the syrup and it is just amazing!!!!! I used a round pan and it looks just like the main picture :) this will be made OFTEN!!! I just ate 4 pieces!! ***** This is an update!! this third time making this I decided to use honey instead of the sugar in the cake itself since the name is Honey Cake, not granulated sugar cake... it was so moist from this that I didn't need to add the milk. For the syrup I used about a cup of honey with like 5 tablespoons (a splash) of orange juice and one tablespoon of sugar and it is so good!! the best one yet!

Wilted Spinach

Reviewed: May 9, 2011
This was my first time making wilted spinach and it came out heavenly with some changes. The amount of sauce is WAY too much and I used a whole 6oz bag of spinach and I dumped 90% of it out and there was still plenty. I used fresh minced garlic, and omitted the pine nuts because I just wanted it without them. I also added about 2 tablespoons of soy sauce trying to emulate my favorite sushi place. This is really amazing and will be eaten several times a week!! Also, don't be afraid to use more than just a pinch of pepper :)

Carolyn's Sensual Sea Bass Fillets with Crawfish and Crab Sauce

Reviewed: May 9, 2011
I made this without the crab and crawfish. I also didn't have white pepper or parsley. I used like 4 cloves of garlic and I think you could cut back on the butter by half. This is really good, I think next time I will omit the flour and maybe use cornstarch? I think that would work better. or maybe not use it at all. It sort of tastes like alfredo sauce on fish but that is fine with me :)

Lemon Horseradish New Potatoes

Reviewed: May 9, 2011
I just made these as the recipe says. I cooked mine at 350 for like an hour and 20 minutes.. they still seemed like they needed to crisp up a bit and weren't fully soft. Usually when I make red potatoes I cook them at 400*.. I will be making these again for sure but next time I may double the horseradish and use 5 or so cloves of minced garlic. These lacked flavor but I only took off one star because I know they could be great with some tweaks :)

Artichokes

Reviewed: Jun. 21, 2011
I am making this right now, and I already like the idea of the butter and garlic in the leaves. I am deducting one star because no where in the directions does it say when and where to add the salt and pepper so I omitted the pepper and added a little salt and splash of balsamic vinegar to the water. I am also taking off a star because the recipe gives no dipping sauce suggestions, and one tablespoon of butter in the leaves is definitely not enough. I just tested at 20 min and it is still really hard. I also used about an inch of water. I gave my artichoke 15 extra minutes and I think that will be good. so excited to eat it!! I will serve with mayo like always :) maybe butter also. I appreciate this recipe! *****UPDATE: after eating, I see that they need to be cooked for at least 45 minutes. I LOVED the garlic in the leaves and next time will quadruple the amount. I think all the butter melted out of the artichoke so I probably won't be doing that again. Loved it though! yay
