Blue Cheese and Pear Tartlets

Reviewed: Sep. 17, 2007
OMG! These were so good! It was the first appetizer to go! I did follow a few of the suggestions: used Gorgonzola instead of bleu cheese & drizzled honey on the top after a few minutes of cooling. I also added about 2 tablespoons of light cream cheese to balance the Gorgonzola and to make the tart a little creamy. Also, I forgot to add the light cream at first, so I "poured" a drop onto each tart individually after I filled them. This turned out fine. There was quite a bit of mix left after filling the 15 tartletts, so I created my own tartlets by using regular philo dough (sp?) and cutting it into small squares (about 5 or 6 layers). If you make your own, make sure you brush melted butter on the dough so it will turn golden. (I forgot that step.) Next time, I will dice the pear pieces up smaller & add a piece of walnut to the finished product before drizzling the honey. The description said it was time-consuming, but I found this to be one of the easiest things I've made in a while. The "work" is in dicing the pear & filling the tarts - not time-consuming at all.

Tuna Pasta Salad with Dill

Reviewed: Mar. 19, 2008
This is a light & tasty recipe that would be perfect for a shower or lunches. (It keeps well in the 'fridge for several days.) BUT to make it serve-worthy, I suggest the following additions: 1-2 hard boiled eggs, 1/2 c finely diced celery, 2 tablespoons sweet relish, 1 c thawed peas, & a couple shakes of celery salt. Also, use a bit less dill than suggest. (I used 1 1/2 teaspoons.) Do not leave out the pickle juice and use a good, homemade kosher dill brand for best results. I used a little more than suggested (3-4 tablespoons). Finally, do not eat it right away: Let the flavors marry for at least 2 hours (simply follow directions). Whew...That seems like a lot, but it's really not too complicated. My husband, co-workers, & I all enjoyed it. It's simple, keeps for a long time, healthy (if you use light mayo & skim milk, which I did), & cost-effective.

Fairy-Tale Mushrooms

Reviewed: Jan. 22, 2011
Cute idea. I modified using mozzarella cheese sticks cut up and halved cherry tomatoes "glued" together with pesto. I didn't put the mayo dots on top: Used Kosher salt, olive oil, & balsamic vinegar instead.

Lemon Cream Pasta with Chicken

Reviewed: Jan. 6, 2011
Good weeknight recipe. Basic ingredients & quick. I used the Foreman grill vs. baking the chicken. Added sundried tomatoes & artichoke hearts, which were good but not necessary. Peas could also work.

Sausage Stuffed Mushrooms II

Reviewed: Jan. 17, 2011
Completed recipe exactly as suggested. Some people loved them; others only ate a nibble. I think it was very rich for those peeps. But it was a super easy themed appetizer for my daughter's bday party.

French Ham Cheese and Egg Fondue Casserole

Reviewed: Nov. 4, 2007
This recipe went over well at a bridal shower brunch. I'm not usually sensitive to salt, but I found this to be a bit salty. I did not have enough cheddar this time, so I added in a little fontina to the cheddar mix...That was a great substitute since fontina melts so well. Next time, I will make sure to use low-sodium ham. I will also add a vegetable like spinach, onion, or mushrooms. It's a keeper though.

Slow Cooker Ham

Reviewed: Mar. 15, 2007
This ham turned out really great, but I had the same problem as others: The ham bone kept the lid from going all the way on. I have the largest Crock-Pot on the market, so I'm not sure how others managed to get their 8 pound, bone-in picnic ham all the way in. No worries though...I just used foil to "seal" the edges, and all was well. I also added pineapple like others suggested. I don't think it needed it, but it was a nice addition.

Strawberry Champagne Punch

Reviewed: Mar. 15, 2007
This was a good punch for a crowd: inexpensive, tasteful, & easily modified...I added frozen raspberries & an extra bottle of champagne as well.

Spicy Shrimp Skewers

Reviewed: Jan. 1, 2008
YUMMO! This was great! I followed the recipe, and I added a tad bit of garlic powder. My shrimp only marinated for about 45 minutes and were cooked on a George Foreman. Served on top of Bamati (sp?) rice w/ Hoppin' John as a side dish (it's New Year's Day), this served as a balanced savory, sweet, & spicy dish that was refreshing for the month of January. I can't wait to make this at future BBQs this summer served w/ pineapples on the skewer w/ the shrimp. p.s. This marinade would also be great w/ salmon.

Joy's Prizewinning Trifle

Reviewed: Aug. 18, 2010
Followed recipe exactly. (Okay...not exactly: I added 1 cup of milk to the pudding like others suggested, and I soaked the bananas in the pineapple juice.) But this dessert was great! Sweet, light, decadent. I usually don't consider it dessert until chocolate is involved, but I'll be whipping up this one again! :)

Island Kielbasa in a Slow Cooker

Reviewed: Sep. 19, 2010
Not sure what went wrong, but this was not good. I love every single item that went into this dish (followed recipe exactly) but not how they turned out.

Spicy-Sweet Glazed Salmon

Reviewed: Sep. 18, 2007
Made this w/ King Salmon..Yummo! I added a little maple syrup (the real kind) & additional brown sugar. (The soy smelled overpowering until I did that.) This would also be great grilled, too. It's a keeper but can be altered to suit tastes.

Brown Sugar Meatloaf

Reviewed: Apr. 24, 2007
If you're looking for a different meatloaf recipe, try this one. It's original in flavor. I added sauted bacon pieces to the mix to "kick it up a notch" and incorporate another element of flavor that paired well with the brown sugar. This also tasted *wonderful* the next day for lunch. I did make a little more of the sauce then what's called for and put it on top of the loaf the last 10-15 minutes of baking. To the sauce, I added worchestershire sauce, dijon mustard, and garlic powder. p.s. If you don't like your meat sweet, then don't try this one. Or don't try this and rate it poorly. It is "brown sugar" meatloaf. If this is you, try the Rempel meatloaf (also on this website.)

Emily's Super Eggplant Sauce

Reviewed: Jul. 27, 2011
Good way to sneak veggies into toddler's spaghetti. I processed the veggies before adding them to the tomato sauce/paste. Also added Kosher salt and Italian seasoning. Still can definitely taste the eggplant, but it's disguised enough that she ate it.

Chocolate Chip Pie IV

Reviewed: Feb. 6, 2007
My husband and I found this to be way too sweet and not what we had in mind. I had a chocolate chip pie served to me about a year ago that was wonderful, and I've been on a mission since to recreate the recipe. This wasn't it. If I made this recipe again, I would use less white sugar, add in some brown, and use more flour.

Asian Salad

Reviewed: Sep. 3, 2007
This was a hit at our Labor Day party. I have only two suggestions: 1. Use 1/2 the amount of butter called for. 2. Add shredded carrots. The carrots made the salad more appealing to the eye and gave it a more complex flavor. This is a great picnic dish.

Ham and Cheese Bowties

Reviewed: Apr. 5, 2011
Super easy and yummy. I typically mess up a mac n cheese. Not sure what was different about this one. I added frozen mixed veggies to the pasta at the end of boiling to make it a better balanced meal. Also, not a big deal, but I used penne instead of bowties since that's what I had on hand. 2 year old loved it! p.s. I used non-fat milk...Suprisingly worked like a charm.

Primavera Noodles

Reviewed: Apr. 1, 2011
simple, inexpensive, easy, and tasty. I put all of our veggies in the pot since I don't care for crunch. Felt this brought out the mushroom flavor more. Also used more parmesan.
