Mushroom Stuffed Chicken Rollups

Reviewed: May 8, 2002
This is a great basic recipe but with a few touches it is elegant. First, make duxelles for the stuffing (sauteed finely chopped mushrooms with shallots) and then add about a couple of tablespoons of white wine and let that get absorbed. No breadcrumbs. Either slice the chicken in half horizontally or pound it flat or both before you stuff it. Roll the chicken up then brush it with olive oil or butter then roll it in the breadcrumbs mixed with grated parmesan cheese, 1/2 tsp. paprika and 1/2 tsp. thyme. Then pour the cream and bake! Yum!

My Own Famous Stuffed Grape Leaves

Reviewed: Aug. 29, 2001
Patti, what a delicious recipe. The rice stuffing is absolutely wonderful. I had a problem with the grape leaves, though. They were tough and chewy no matter how long I simmered them. It was recommeded to me by a friend from Athens to pour boiling water over the leaves, let them sit for 5 minutes, drain and let them sit in a bowl of cold water before they are used. 10 seconds wasn't enough for mine. Maybe mine were fresh leaves. Also, my friend suggested to put a plate over the grape leaves as they simmer so that they don't fall apart. This was a lot of work and I ended up having to through it all away but I'm willing to try it again with these changes. I'll write a new review when I do this.

Claire's Yummy Crepes

Reviewed: Mar. 8, 2001
I've seen other crepe recipes that were very complicated but this one is simple, easy and able to be "dressed up" as you wish. For example, I added 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract and 1/4 teaspoon cinnamon into the batter and it was great! I recommend using butter, not oil to grease the skillet and they cooked best at medium heat for me. My family loved them!

Granola Recipe Bars

Reviewed: Aug. 30, 2000
I bought several of the ingredients in this recipe just to make it because it sounded so good but after I made it I was surprised that this recipe won any awards. The crust of this bar is very bland and the toppings just don't work together. I would not make this again.

San Francisco Sourdough Bread

Reviewed: Jun. 19, 2001
This was a good bread but it didn't taste like sourdough bread and I used a great sourdough starter. If I was to rate this as a white bread then I would give it 5 stars.

Shawna's Southern Fried Chicken Salad

Reviewed: Jun. 21, 2000
I too doubled the dressing and thought it was delicious. Grilled chicken may be used instead of fried chicken as well.

Baked Fish with Shrimp

Reviewed: Jun. 14, 2002
I think this was fabulous. So simple, yet delicious! Yes, add seasonings to the fish and yes, add sherry (I added 2 Tablespoons) to the sauce. Unlike another reviewer, I WOULD serve this to company and I did with great reviews.

Artichoke Bruschetta

Reviewed: Jan. 26, 2003
This recipe was great except the onions really overpowered it. I would reduce the onions to 1 tablespoon or to omit it. Thanks! I've passed it on to several friends!

Cinnamon Coconut Loaf

Reviewed: Aug. 12, 2000
This bread was delicious but I did have a problem with the top getting too browned before the loaf was finished baking. I tented the top with foil and this seemed to help a bit. Also, I added chocolate chips and we all loved it. Next time I'll try it in a 9x9-inch cake pan.

Jim Kaczmarek's Chili

Reviewed: Oct. 4, 2002
This recipe didn't work for me at all. It was so salty that I had to add everything in my cabinet to dilute it and then it was just a big disappointment.

Delicious Black Bean Burritos

Reviewed: Aug. 21, 2001
Sorry, but these were awful. I could barely eat it and no one else would. I can't imagine what everyone is raving about here.

Chocolate Chip Cookie Brittle

Reviewed: Oct. 13, 2001
A fun, delicious recipe! It looks beautiful, too. I ate a piece with my coffee this morning and it is just as tasty (more so, really) than biscotti. Great christmas gift to send, I think.

Chocolate X and O Cookies

Reviewed: Feb. 4, 2001
I made this with my kids and they loved decorating the cookies. As far as taste goes, these were just okay. Cooking for 5 minutes was definitely off. They needed at least 8-9 minutes. We prefered them crispier than chewy so we cooked longer than even that. Also, the rolling of the dough was a bit difficult. I won't make these again.

Artichoke-Chile Dip

Reviewed: Jan. 13, 2002
I served this at a party with pita crisps this weekend and everyone loved it. It was a bit too mayonaisse-y for me, though. I think it would be better if the mayo was replaced with cream cheese. Either way, it was a favorite at the party.

Black Bean and Couscous Salad

Reviewed: Jan. 30, 2002
I never would have tried this but thanks to the favorable reviews, I did. I only used 4 green onions and omitted the red pepper because I don't care for the taste of it and I absolutely loved this! I think it would beautifully accompany many a meal. Thanks for the great recipe!

Best Peach Cobbler Ever

Reviewed: May 10, 2000
I was disappointed in this recipe. I didn't expect it to taste so cakey and there weren't enough peaches in it. Also, the juice was a little watery.

Buttermilk Honey Wheat Bread

Reviewed: May 24, 2000
I loved this bread! I mixed it in my bread machine but baked it in a loaf pan as directed. I did find that it needed a bit more flour. It tasted delicious!

Yellow Squash Casserole

Reviewed: Feb. 10, 2002
Sorry, but this didn't cut it with my family. It was too buttery and lacked flavor. I ended up throwing most of it out.
