Shrimp and Asparagus

Reviewed: Sep. 6, 2010
I loved this recipe, but I made a few changes after tasting the first batch which I made following the recipe. Thus only 4 stars. I found the mushrooms to offset the dish. I chose to saute the asparagus with a little olive oil and sea salt for about 4 minutes. Then I added some fresh basil, the lemon juice, about 2 tablespoons of more olive oil, half a tomato, and only 2 cloves of garlic (my boyfriend isn't big on garlic), and the shrimp. Cooked this for about 5 minutes while stirring and it came out PERFECT. Cooked the noodles and tossed it all together while still in the pan (this is key to allow the noodles and sauce to mix together.) You'll notice I omitted the whole cup of butter. Didn't find use for it with already having the olive oil. Makes it much more healthier and I think, less dense. This is a great dish, just needed a little bit of adjustment.

Hash Brown Quiche

Reviewed: Feb. 27, 2010
So for this recipe I shredded 3 red potatoes which I think was a mistake. I baked them for 25 minutes at 450, but they didn't really get crispy. We love scrambled eggs so I added 10 eggs (I used a very large casserole dish). The main problem I had with this quiche is that it was pretty bland. Could have used some more spices.

Sugar Coated Pecans

Reviewed: Feb. 16, 2010
Great little dessert to snack on! I made these for the girls I babysit and they ate them all up. I had to take them away so that their parents could try some when they got home! I used the tips of other reviewers by first coating the pecans in the bowl I had the egg whites in. Then adding the to the cinnamon sugar mix in a gallon bag and shook. Another great thing for the girls. They loved shaking the bag around! Great recipe to make with kids. The oven was even cool enough that they could stir the pecans at the 15 minute marks (:

Downeast Maine Pumpkin Bread

Reviewed: Feb. 16, 2010
Best pumpkin bread I have ever made! I changed the recipe a bit though. I cut it in half and placed in one 9x5 pan. Cooked for 60 minutes, let it cool, popped it out and it was perfect! This bread is definitely better the next day. Planning on baking another load tonight. Sooo good I even had to take a picture before it was all gone! You wont regret baking this.

Owen's BBQ Chicken

Reviewed: Jan. 12, 2010
We used chicken breasts and baked in the oven at 375 for about 30 minutes and these came out great. Only gave 4 stars because the sauce tasted a little too much like ketchup. Perhaps more brown sugar or worcestershire sauce next time. Great with a baked potato and broccoli.

Chicken Tortilla Soup V

Reviewed: Jan. 11, 2010
Great soup! I'm only giving it 4 stars because it wasn't as thick as I would have wanted. But I think most soups like this are a little runny. I poached the chicken in the chicken broth and garlic and then shredded. Came out great this way. Next time I'll add some pinto beans to add some substance.

Orange Muffins

Reviewed: Jan. 7, 2010
Great muffins! I didn't have any orange juice, but tons of clementines so I used the juice of 5 or so clementines and added 2 extra tablespoons of sugar. Still sooo good. I also ran out of butter so couldn't do the crumb topping, instead i just added a spoonful of sugar and some cinnamon to the tops and they came out wonderful! like a candy topping. Will definitely be making these again.

Grandma Ople's Apple Pie

Reviewed: Nov. 7, 2009
For this delicious pie I used two pre made pilsbury crusts and followed the recipe exactly. I could only fit 6 apples in without having too much of a raise in the middle and then did the latice crust. I was hesitant to pour all of the sauce over the top and not mixing it in the apples before but don't worry! The sauce melts down into the pie making it so yummy, but leaves a little sweet crunch to the top. My new favorite pie recipe!

Delicious Ham and Potato Soup

Reviewed: Oct. 22, 2009
I cannot say how awesome this recipe is. My boyfriend is veryyyy picky and he could not stop raving about this soup! I also added a can of slightly drained pinto beans, and since I didn't have any ham on the bone I just used regular deli ham. Still tasted wonderful. Definitely the best soup that I have ever made and will continue to make.

Reviewed: Oct. 22, 2009
Wonderful recipe. I used pork butt, much less expensive, a little more fatty, but still so yummy!
