Streusel Topped Blueberry Muffins

Reviewed: Mar. 19, 2010
Absolutely amazing! These are perhaps the best muffins I have ever had and probably the best recipe I have every tried from this site. My husband even liked them and he's not one to like sweet things. The only thing I didn't do is add the lemon zest because I didn't have any lemons but eh. The only problem is that they were eaten too fast

Beef Tenderloin in a Port Shiitake Reduction

Reviewed: Feb. 14, 2011
Delicious! I was worried about it being a little too sweet but it turned out pretty amazing. I made it for an early Valentine's Day dinner and it was a great choice for the occasion. I didn't cube the meat because I wanted the cuts whole, so I seared the tenderloins an cooked them in the oven at 500 degrees for 4 minutes and let them sit on the pan will a foil tent for a few minutes before placing them in the skillet with the reduction sauce at a medium low heat for 4 more minutes on each side which got them to a perfect medium-rare. The sauce did reduce a bit faster than 30 minutes so this is definitely a recipe you have to watch closely. Little bit of modifications but it was a big hit for me and my husband.

Chicken Andouille Gumbo

Reviewed: Mar. 19, 2011
Delicious! My dad's side of the family is all cajun, so whenever we went to visit them I always got to look forward to their gumbo. Craving something similar, and it being near Mardi Gras, I decided to give making my own gumbo a try. Completely new to the process of making gumbo but I did a lot of research before I attempted this recipe and read a lot of reviews on it. I made the okra according to the recipe and it turned out fine- not slimey. the andouille sausage I bought wasn't that great so it really didn't add anything, could've left it out. My roux definitely took more than 6 minutes- more like 45! very easy but extremely time consuming. I added onions to the vegetable mix (gotta have onions). Other than that I left the rest of the recipe alone and it turned out just like I remember gumbo and just the right amount of spice. My husband and my friends, who have never had gumbo, love it too!

Waikiki Meatballs

Reviewed: Oct. 30, 2011
I frequently make this dish for dinner. It is a favorite for both myself and my husband. I feel I must finally give it a review. The only change I make is baking the meatballs. I've never actually tried to cook the meatballs in the skillet. It's just so easy to just stick them in the oven. Wonderful flavors!
