Crepes with Spinach, Bacon and Mushroom Filling

Reviewed: Feb. 4, 2014
This is a good general recipe for crepes, allowing for a variety of substitutions in the filling. The bechemel brought the filling together wonderfully, but the sauce... I'm not sure how that was supposed to work. I followed the directions exactly and got a thin, runny, much too lemony liquid. It took about 10 minutes of constant whisking on medium heat to acheive enough thickening to call it a sauce. It wasn't terrible, but the lemon was overpowering and it had a slightly grainy texture.

Apple Braised Pork

Reviewed: Dec. 11, 2011
Absolutely delicious! My 5.5 lb roast took 1 hr 50 mins to reach temp, but the meat was perfectly moist and tender. Thank you for sharing - it's a keeper!

Pan-Seared Duck Breast with Blueberry Sauce

Reviewed: Dec. 9, 2011
The rich and varied ingredient list made me think that this would be the perfect dish for some wild duck breasts that a friend gave us. Unfortunately, it just wasn't enough to take the gamey-ness out of the meat and the overall sentiment of our family was that the flavors were just too overpowering - too many different tastes that didn't seem to mesh well. I don't know if it would be different with store-bought duck, but I probably won't be giving this a second try:(

Unbelievably Awesome Barbeque Chicken Pizza

Reviewed: Dec. 7, 2011
The simple addition of the sesame oil made the flavor of the chicken sing! After cooking, I shredded it up and put it back in the pan to coat with the yummy sauce. I used my homemade crust with a little mesquite seasoning mixed in, omitted the cilantro (didn't have any but will try it next time), and added an extra cup of colby-jack cheese. This is a keeper!

Broccoli with Roasted Red Peppers

Reviewed: Dec. 6, 2011
I followed the recipe exactly and LOVED the results! The vinegar infusion of the peppers complimented the broccoli perfectly without making the whole dish overpowering. A delicious change from the usual broccoli side dish and good enough to serve for special occasions. Next time, I may try Balsamic vinegar because I love it.

Red Snapper Livornese

Reviewed: Feb. 9, 2011
I would have given this 4 stars were it not for the snapper - cod would probably have been a better choice. The sauce was delicious - served it with couscous as suggested, but hubby hates olives and kids hate capers, so I probably won't get a chance to try this again.

We get Harry and David pears for Christmas every year, and they made this bread deliciously sweet and moist. I got rave reviews for it!

Wonderful Short Ribs

Reviewed: Mar. 1, 2010
This was my first try at short ribs - and they were Wonderful! I made the recipe as instructed, but had to limit cook time to 2 hours total (recipe heading says 2 hrs, but directions say 2 1/2 hrs). I also took the cover off during the last 30 minutes to thicken up the sauce. The meat was tender enough, but would probably have been even more so with additional cook time. I will definitely try this one again to find out! I served it with roasted butternut squash and broccoli, but the amount of sauce produced needs something to soak it up - maybe pasta, brown rice or spaghetti squash?
