Beef Stew V

Reviewed: Oct. 10, 2011
Not great by any means, but not bad either. Much more bland than I was expecting. Whenever I explore a recipe with beef and red wine as primary focal points, I just expect a bit more depth and richness to the end result. Since we love homemade beef stew though, my husband and I still went through it fairly quickly. This recipe's flavors and textures ("gravy" was a thin even with all the flour from the beef) left enough to be desired that I won't use this recipe again. Again, not bad, but too subtle for our tastes.

World's Best Lasagna

Reviewed: Oct. 10, 2011
Usually something claiming to be "world's best" should be treated with caution. In this case, however, I'd line up to award that ribbon! I believe that lasagna should never be skimped on and this recipe has it all: fresh ingredients and plenty of them, multiple types of meats and cheese, multiple types of processing of the tomatoes. It can be a little pricey and labor intensive, but it's well worth both expenditures. I don't have a stovetop dutch oven, but have plenty of deep stock pots, which cook up the meat/tomato mixture beautifully. I found this recipe here a few years ago and haven't even thought about trying another one since - this one is IT!

Grilled Salmon I

Reviewed: Oct. 10, 2011
I used to be intimidated by the grill, but with recipes like this my confidence is swiftly growing. Plus, any recipe that calls for everything I already keep on hand (excluding fish ;) earns instant points at my house. I picked out skinless salmon portions rather than full-size fillets, which were perfect for me and my husband. The only thing I did at all differently from the recipe was cut down the brown sugar by about half. I also had a tube of lemon grass puree, so I added a little over a tablespoon of that. I could not be happier with the way these flavors work together. The fish developed a light, delicate crisp crust that kept those flavors laced through the moist, flaky flesh. This will definitely be my go-to recipe for salmon on the grill.

Blackberry Peach Pie

Reviewed: Oct. 10, 2011
I used four 7 oz. Del Monte cocktail cups of blueberries and blackberries in juice. After straining all of the juices out it cut down the total amount of fruit to about half what the recipe calls for. This ended up working out very well since the sugar breaks down the dark fruits, extracting plenty of rich and delicious juice. I think making up the difference with peaches rather than berries will make for a better ratio next time. 4 peaches and 1.5 - 2 c. berries. I also cut the top crust into 3/4" strips and did a lattice, which looked just lovely - and tasted just as wonderful. So, cut the berries in half and add a peach and you'll be all set!

Salsa Chicken Burrito Filling

Reviewed: May 21, 2011
The only minor tweaks I made to this awesome recipe were to use an enchilada seasoning packet instead of taco (1. My husband hates taco seasoning 2. It's what I already had in the house) added 1/8c water and 1/8c red wine (cabernet sauvignon) then covered during the simmering time. Any time I'm cooking meat with a tomato base I add some red wine to add more depth to the flavors. For us, we effectively divided this recipe up into five servings giving him 3 smaller burritos and 2 for me, which with a side salad filled us fine.
