Sweet and Spicy Green Beans

Reviewed: Sep. 22, 2012
I thoiught these were great, love the Asian flair...would pair wonderfully w an Asian meal. I accidentally had some snow peas in my string beans and I thought the snow peas worked even better for this recipe. My family was mixed on this though bc they prefer "Country Green Beans" also on this site.

Strawberry Trifle

Reviewed: Jul. 23, 2012
This is truly the perfect light dessert after a heavy meal. This is what I used, french vanilla pudding, real whipped cream, strawberries blueberries and bananas and ladyfingers sprinkled w milk(bc I wanted them to taste like cake,not cookies). Perfect, and make a lot! prob 15 servings or so...reminds me of strawberry shortcake. Tis recipe is very versatile as you can use almost any fruits/pudding/cake. For the person who had a soupy mess, make sure you dry ur fruit after washing. I put mine in a strainer to get all the liquids out. Enjoy!

Tiramisu II

Reviewed: May 28, 2012
I wa sso nervous abt this one, bc the ignredients are expensive and also the issue of cooking the eggs. My first batch of eggs, I cooked too much and threw it out. I knew bc it was lumpy and looked scrambled...The second one I followed the directions to a T, and I got a smooth custard. I learned you have to dip the ladyfingers in the coffee ( I didnt use rum bc I didnt have), if you dont dip the ladyfingers and just drizzle it, it doesnt get soaked as much it just stays dry. Besides that, the taste was amazing and only gets better and better...3 days later Im still eating it!!

Stuffed Shells III

Reviewed: Apr. 22, 2012
OMG is this good!! I just had 4 big shells, and I could keep on eating!! This is what I used, one 15 oz part skim ricotta, one bag shredded mozz, no parm bc i didnt have it, one egg, italian seasoning, salt pepper and half a box of frozen spinach. I mixed it up let it sit in the fridge while the noodles boiled which I didnt cook fr the full 10 mins, more like 8 mins. I used one big jar of Prego mushroom sauce, and half the mozz sprinkled on top. I baked cvered for half hour, and uncovered for 15 mins. DELISH!!!

Ricotta Gnocchi

Reviewed: Mar. 21, 2012
Reminded me of gnocchi frm my fave Italian Restaurant, and it was soooo easy. I omitted the garlic, used black pepper to taste...and I probably doubled the flour...im not sure how much I used bc I just kept adding until I could form a dough. I made ropes, and cut off little pieces with the side of my fork. I boiled for abt 5 to 6 minutes, an added jarred sauce( i know i know!!) but I have no time to make my own sauce. It was still delicious with some parm sprinkled on top

Spinach Tomato Tortellini

Reviewed: Mar. 11, 2012
i LOVED this!!! Im sry but I had to change this based on what I had....first off I didnt have spinach so I left it out.I didnt have cream, so I used milk. I added mushrooms to make up for the spinach. This is what I did...I sauteed onions and garlic in olive oil, then I cooked the sliced mushrooms, and then added the diced tomatoes and then milk. I added some italian seasoning, salt and pepper. Then I cooked it on high heat to thicken it. I added the frozen kind of cheese tortellini (one 14 oz bag) and it was the perfect amount for the sauce. I also added grated parm cheese. Perfect, and not too heavy since its made with milK!

Chocolate Covered Strawberries

Reviewed: Mar. 8, 2012
I know this annoys people, but I did not really follow the recipe. Just want to share what I did. I melted Lindt milk chocolate in the micowave in small batches, since it seizes up quick...and i just dipped the strawberries in them. Didnt even have a chance to cool them, theyw ere so yummy I was dipping and eating! Have to work on presentaton though, as the melted choc gets thick and it makes it hard to dip.

Roasted Duck

Reviewed: Dec. 30, 2011
This was such a flop for me, and a HUGE disappointment since i had all my family over and I spent a lot of money on these ducks. It took much much longer to cook, and the meat was not tasty at all. The best part of the meal were the potatoes and carrots I cooked under the duck...Never again..

Traditional Mashed Potatoes

My mashed potatoes used to never come out right, until I learned that U MUST use warm butter and warm milk. Thats all. And lots of salt and pepper. And next time I wanna add chives or something for more flavor.

Hot Artichoke and Spinach Dip II

Reviewed: Nov. 25, 2011
Did not turn out well for me, but maybe it was my mistake since so many ppl loved this recipe. I like the creamy texture that many restaurants have, but when I made this mine had a very stiff texture that was hard to dip in. Maybe i had too much spinach, I did have to change up some ingredients bc of what I had on hand but I stuck pretty close to the original recipe. The taste was good, but not creamy and delicious like i expected. I threw it all out, all those expensive ingredients!!

Gourmet Sweet Potato Classic

Reviewed: Nov. 25, 2011
I reallly liked it, esp with the pecan crumble topping it gave it a diff texture than just mushy potatoes...I micorwaved 6 potatoes for abt 10 minutes, and they were soft enough to mash!! This made me happy because I just couldnt deal with boiling for so long. Also I used only 1/4th cup sugar with the sweet potatoes

Cranberry Sauce

Turkey Brine

Reviewed: Nov. 17, 2011
This is a standard brine recipe, and although I do not use this one I use Alton Browns Good Eats Roast Turkey one I have to say brining is a MUST...it is foolproof and guarantees you a delicious moist juicy turkey...normally my sister used to make the turkey and it was so dry so one year i took over and brined it and ever since then Ive been in charge of thanksgiving turkeys. TRY IT AND YOULL LOVE IT! I also think you need to use a low sodium broth or cut the salt to 3/4 cup, otherwise it willbe a tad salty.

Cajun Chicken Pasta

Reviewed: Oct. 30, 2011
Pretty good, but Ive tried a better recipe before. Just couldnt find that recipe so I followed this one pretty closely, and changed some stuff bc I just didnt have the ingredient on hand. I sauteed an onion and some minced garlic in olive oil, then added chopped up mushrooms and bell peppers. to that i added pre cooked shrimp ( w cajun seasoning on them). I also flavored the veggies w cajun seasoning, salt, garlic, and black pepper. To this I added non fat Greek yogurt instead of cream ( small container). Then i added bowtie pasta, and it turned out quite well.
