Beefaroni

Reviewed: Jul. 14, 2010
This recipe was quite good. I used 2 cups of elbow macaroni, and that was quite enough. I also added some Emeril's essence while cooking the beef, and Italian seasoning to the sauce. The recipe made enough to feed myself and my wife for two rather large dinners, and it was very good. We WILL make this recipe again.

Shepherd's Pie Complete

Reviewed: Aug. 5, 2010
This is a wonderful tasting dish that is fairly easy to cook. I cut the gravy in half and added some seasoning on the ground beef when browning. I've made it several times for several people, and they keep wanting the recipe! I will make this again... and again... and again...

Bourbon Chicken

Reviewed: Aug. 6, 2010
This is the basis for an exceptional meal. I used chicken thighs and changed the proportions of bourbon and brown sugar a bit. I also added cornstarch as a thickener to the sauce while it cooked. The result was quite good, and my family is already asking for it again.

Grilled Cilantro Salmon

Reviewed: Aug. 14, 2010
My wife likes salmon better than I do, but she loved this one. I found it a bit sweet, but she says I'm crazy. I will be cooking this again for her.

Orzo with Parmesan and Basil

Reviewed: Aug. 14, 2010
I found this to be a bit disappointing. Yes, orzo and cheese go together well, but the basil didn't taste quite right with it. I gave it three stars because while it isn't stellar, it was quite edible.

Green Bean Bundles

Reviewed: Aug. 14, 2010
I don't know what to say about these except this: they are phenominal! I poured the sauce over the green beans prior to baking, then wrapped them in bacon abd baked. Lovely, absolutely lovely. We will make these again... and again, and again, and again...

Pastry Cream

Reviewed: Aug. 14, 2010
This was my first attempt at a pastry cream, and it came out wonderfully well. I used a double-boiler, and the cream came out tasting wonderful. I can imaging many ways to use this cream... all of them delicious!

Cream Puff Shells

Reviewed: Aug. 14, 2010
These shells tasted fine, and I filled them with pastry cream... my wife gobbled down 4 of them after dinner before proclaiming herself stuffed. I wish there were a way to add the cream without slicing the puffs open and hollowing them out. Messy. Otherwise, quite tasty.

Sugar Coated Pecans

Reviewed: Oct. 12, 2010
These are crunchy and VERY tasty. I increase the amount of cinnamon to AT LEAST two tsp... strong cinnamon flavor that doesn't swamp the pecan taste. I also modified the recipe for other flavors: orange, cherry, raspberry, butter, and rum, just to name a few. They taste GREAT!

Amy's Sausage Apple Pie

Reviewed: Oct. 12, 2010
This is a great-tasting recipe that is really very simple to make. The combination of pork sausage and apples is classic, and the cheddar cheese just makes it better. Be sure to use sharp cheddar... the flavor blends better than mild. I WILL be making this again. Thanks for the wonderful meal!

Great Grandma's Pork and Sauerkraut

Reviewed: Oct. 12, 2010
This is quite tasty... the apples take the "sting" out of the kraut, and the overall flavor is good.

Cream Cheese Penguins

Reviewed: Oct. 12, 2010
I haev made these several times, and they are WONDERFUL. Though time-consuming to prepare, they taste great and look so cute that some people refuse to eat them! Every time I make them, people rave about them. EDIT: I entered them into a 2011 cooking contest at our state fair, and won first place in the appetizers and finger foods competition. Everybody loved them, and the onions and chives cream cheese spread worked great. Ad don't forget the baby penguins!

Ginny's Cheezy Macaroni

Reviewed: Mar. 28, 2011
This was quite good as is... I added onion powder and garlic powder. Next time I'll add some ground mustard as well, maybe back off on the garlic. And I'll probably add another 1/2 to 1-cup of cheese to the mix... it just wanted a bit more.

Mad Dogs

Reviewed: Mar. 28, 2011
This was a childhood treat that my wife and I decided to splurge with. We pre-cooked the bacon a bit, and it came out of the oven crispy and delicious. Add a trail of mustdard down the slit with the cheese, and it just about reaches perfection.

Red Wine Reduction Steak Sauce

Reviewed: Mar. 28, 2011
This was quite tasty. I think I'll change up the veggie mix a little next time, but it came out strong and delicious.

Chicken Pot Pie IX

Reviewed: Apr. 2, 2011
I maed this for my wife tonight, and she absolutely loved it. I changed the recipe a bit, adding some diced potato, 1/4 cup of chicken broth, and 1/4 tsp of garlic powder. I also added some celery seed to the chicken broth cooking the chicken and veggies. I pre-cooked the pie bottom for five minutes, and it came out WONDERFULLY. Yummy. This recipe is most definitely a "keeper."

Baby BLT

Reviewed: May 3, 2011
These were quite tasty, but if I make them again I will change it up a bit. The stuffing was mostly bacon, and the other flavors got lost. So I will either only use 1/2 pound of bacon, or increase the mayo/cream cheese mixture from 1/2 cup total to 1-cup. I wanted more of the other flavors, and all I really got was bacon... So, good recipe, but it definitely needs tweaking.

Chili Relleno Squares

Reviewed: May 6, 2011
Made this last night for a group, and they loved it. Not too spicy, but very tasty. I did make some changes to it, though. First, I doubled the egg mixture. Then I added 1 T of taco seasoning to the egg mixture. Next time I cook this I will also add some green onions and black olives... and I just might increase the taco seasoning by half.

Cake Balls

Reviewed: May 11, 2011
I made these with red velvet cake, cream cheese icing, and melted white chocolate chips with gel food coloring for the coating. They were a HUGE hit, and people keep asking for more. I will make these again, but I must say that dipping these was a real chore. The skewer method just didn't work, so I was left using two spoons, which resulted in uneven coating. Before I make these again, I think I will purchase the correct equipment for dipping candy.

Spinach Brownies

Reviewed: Jul. 6, 2011
We ate this for our veggie on the 4th of July, and my wife went absolutely ape over it. We used 10-12 ounces of spinach, and next time we might just use 15-18 ounces of fresh spinach... it tasted great, but a little more spinach wouldn't hurt. We will make this again and again, I'm sure.
