Creamy Saffron Shrimp with Gnocchi and Caramelized Onion

Reviewed: Mar. 14, 2012
I'm giving this a 4-star rating; mainly because we didn't care for the brown sugar taste with the other flavors. Next time I'm simply going to sautee the onions and mushrooms in butter until soft, then add the other ingredients. The other ingredients created such a burst of flavors in the mouth! I had freshly grated parm/regianno cheese we used at the table and I added just a little extra basil. Wow!

Baked Sweet Potato Fries

Reviewed: Feb. 29, 2012
We all liked the "zing" of the pepper on these roasted "fries". They made an excellent side to our grilled chicken and broccoli. Even my daughter, who doesn't like sweet potatoes, enjoyed these.

Tortellini Carbonara

Reviewed: Feb. 7, 2012
We really liked this. Very quick and easy to make, yet tastes wonderful! The fresh parsley really gives it a good flavor along with the bacon and freshly grated parmesan cheese. We'll be making this again and again as I almost always have these ingredients on hand; especially in the summer when I'll have my own fresh parsley.

Slow Cooker Cilantro Lime Chicken

Reviewed: Jan. 31, 2012
Another 5 star winner! When I walked in the door the smell of this coming from my crockpot was heaven! I can't even imagine how my dogs could stand this all day simmering above their noses on the counter top! As I was putting this together in the crockpot I discovered that my salsa was actually black bean and corn salsa, so I threw that in there and moved on. Wow! I will make this again but will always use the black bean and corn salsa - it added some great flavor to this dish.

Lime Cilantro Rice

Reviewed: Jan. 31, 2012
I'm giving this 5-stars as it is very good! My only complaint, and I'm pretty sure it isn't the recipe, but me, is my rice "clumped" together. The flavors of the lime and cilantro were wonderful. My husband put this right into his tortilla but I ate mine as a side. Fantastic either way.

Blue Cheese, Bacon and Chive Stuffed Pork Chops

Reviewed: Jan. 30, 2012
This was very good. I'm giving it 5 starts for flavor, but the cooking time was off quite a bit. My pork chops were not very thick at all and this took about 35 minutes for them to cook, I also turned the heat up to 350 to help move it along. The flavor of the blue cheese, bacon & chives was heavenly! This was easy to make yet was so elegant. We'll have this again. Thank you for a yummy dinner!

Creamy Broccoli Soup

Reviewed: Jan. 29, 2012
Nothing says comfort like a nice warm, creamy bowl of this soup! Definitely add the cheddar cheese - it makes it so rich and comforting. Like others have said, I'm not sure how you would get 5 servings out of this - I made this and 2 of us ate the entire pot at one sitting! We had thick slices of rosemary/olive oil bread warmed and slathered in butter to go with it. Delicious!

Brooke's Best Bombshell Brownies

Reviewed: Jan. 28, 2012
This recipe gets 5 stars from me! I've never been able to make a wonderful brownie. Now I know why - I just didn't have the right recipe! These brownies are really, really good. Very rich and very chocolatey! The chips in them just helps to give them even more chocolatey rich goodness. I did what another reviewer suggested and used 1/2 white sugar and 1/2 brown sugar. A perfect fix for a chocolate craving of a chocoholic! Thank you!

Classic Spanish Paella

Reviewed: Jan. 22, 2012
Very good! I had recently bought saffron for the first time and was excited to use it. I posted on the Buzz that I was going to make a paella recipe, and Don posted this one to try. It is exactly what I thought paella should be! There is a lot of prep to it, but I believe it was well worth it. Hubby helped me with a lot of the chopping, etc. so it went quickly. I would say it makes 4 very generous servings. I'm going to take some for my lunch tomorrow and we'll finish it up for dinner tomorrow night. Thank you, Don!! This one stays in my recipe box!

Easy Chicken Enchiladas

Reviewed: Jan. 8, 2012
These were quite good. I will probably make again because they were not only good but very easy to make. I think I will leave the beans out next time, though.

Mexican Rice II

Reviewed: Jan. 8, 2012
I made this exactly as is. It was good and made a nice side to the enchiladas I made. But, it was just a little too much tomatoey flavor. Like other reviewers my rice did not puff, but I did cook until a golden color. If I use this recipe again I will experiment a little, use less tomato, and see what I can come up with.

Mary's Sugar Cookies

Reviewed: Dec. 23, 2011
As a sugar cookie I rate this a 5. For how much fun we had making and decorating, I'd give it a 10! The recipe was easy, rolled out nicely and baked up nice and soft. To give them even a bigger hint of almond I added almond extract to the icing I put on them. My grown kids and I made these with 3 small children who had never decorated Christmas cookies before. This recipe helped to make some very good memories for some very special children!

Roasted Vegetable Medley

Reviewed: Dec. 18, 2011
Delicious! But I'm only giving the recipe a 4 as I shortened the cooking time by about 15-20 minutes. We prefer our veggies a little less mushy than this would have been had I cooked as long as stated. Flavors all went very well together. For color I also added yellow squash to the mix and cut some mushrooms in half and threw in as well. Loved what the fresh basil did for this! We'll have these again for sure.

Easy Mexican Casserole

Reviewed: Dec. 14, 2011
We enjoyed this and will be making it again. I think next time I will crush tortilla chips and put thm on top once the casserole is out of the oven to give it some "crunch".

JIF® Buckeyes

Reviewed: Dec. 14, 2011
Perfect! I found that halfway thru the dipping process I had to stick my peanut-butter balls back in the fridge to firm up as my toothpick was sliding out of it when I dipped in the chocolate. Made a great addition to my holiday cookie tray!

Waikiki-Style Meatballs

Reviewed: Dec. 1, 2011
This sauce is delicious! I made it exactly as is. However, I did not put it on meatballs - I baked boneless/skinless chicken breasts with this sauce poured on top of them. After reading a blog of another fellow "AR Peep" who had made this and commented it would go well on just about anything, I knew I had to try it. I believe next time I make this I will have pheasant. Hubby said pork would be great as well. Thanks for a great sauce!

Creamy Split Pea Soup

Reviewed: Nov. 28, 2011
I made this after I got to thinking how I hated split pea soup as a kid. I like a lot of things now I never did back then so thought I'd give it a try. Wow! I really liked this, and so did hubby. It was easy to make, I didn't have any celery so I just omitted it and we didn't miss it in there one bit. We'll be having this again!
