Endive Pear Salad Bites With Maple Vinaigrette

Reviewed: May 19, 2013
I was in a hurry and didn't read all the reviews, but I naturally did what they suggested and made only half of the dressing and I used canola oil instead of olive oil because I wanted the taste to be lighter. I also modified it with what I had in my fridge, so I used an apple, candied pecans and blue cheese. It was still a hit and the maple dressing really adds a lot to the taste! Great way to have a low-carb and gluten free appetizer!

Cranberry and Cilantro Quinoa Salad

Reviewed: Jul. 1, 2012
I made it just as it was in the recipe and it was fabulous! Lots of flavor and great taste. I found myself trying to stop eating it before my guests arrived... and failing miserably! :-)

Steff's Shepherd Pie

Reviewed: Nov. 16, 2011
Easy and delicious recipe! I had leftover mashed potatoes and it took me only a few minutes to put everything together and put it in the oven. Yummy hot from the oven and the leftovers were equally good! I added the onions while cooking the beef and added some spices (thyme, salt, pepper, parsley) to the meat, but no other changes.

Irish Cream Chocolate Mousse

Reviewed: Mar. 26, 2011
I found this to be a labor intensive recipe based on the number of items you had to blend separately and then carefully fold together. The hardest was trying to get the chocolate to blend with the yolk/cream mixture. I tried to smooth the chocolate by mixing in some of the cream mixture, but it was so thick I felt like it could have used some additional cream in the chocolate to allow it to blend better. While labor intensive, the finished product tasted quite Irish Cream wonderful.

Tortilla Espanola (Spanish Tortilla)

Reviewed: Dec. 10, 2010
Excellent recipe. It came out perfect the first time. I used two pans to cook the ingredients to speed up the process. After I put it together and cooked it on one side, my pan was so full I couldn't fit it in the pan the other direction without breaking it apart. I ended up putting it in the oven on 350 for another 10 minutes and it set beautifully and looked great turned out onto a plate.

Pear and Blue Cheese Pastry Triangles

Reviewed: Nov. 15, 2010
To solve a space/goodness problem that a number of people were having, I made decent sized rectangles rather than triangles and fit on lots of good toppings. It decreased the puff around the edges, but gave about five great bites. I also put the blue cheese underneath to make it prettier and drizzled balsamic vinegar reduction over the top. Yummy!

Eggplant with Garlic Sauce

Reviewed: Mar. 23, 2010
I made a number of modifications and it still turned out great! I sliced and quartered a full-sized eggplant and increased the cooking time, used Hoisen instead of Oyster sauce (because that's what I had) and increased the cornstarch. It was still a little spicier than I like, so I might decrease the red pepper next time. A yummy and healthy dish!
