High Temperature Eye-of-Round Roast

Reviewed: Feb. 14, 2014
This is absolutely the best! We like ours medium-rare, so I left the heat on for 30 minutes instead of 21, and it was perfect. A few minutes before taking it out of the oven, I prepared a horseradish/cream sauce to pour over it after I sliced it. It's so easy, and it gives you plenty of time to prepare your side dishes.

Sweet Potato and Black Bean Chili

Reviewed: Nov. 3, 2013
Wonderful! Rather than roast the potatoes, I just cubed them and partially cooked them and let them finish cooking in the soup. I also substituted chicken broth for the water to give it a little more flavor. Super on a chilly night!!

Grilled Skirt Steak with Homemade Asian Barbeque Marinade

Reviewed: Aug. 18, 2013
This is AMAZING!! I didn't have skirt steak, so I used london broil sliced about 1" think and marinated it about 8 hours. While the steak was grilling, I heated up the marinade and put it over hot rice. This is a definite "keeper" and also quite an inexpensive meal. My family likes things on the "zippy" side, so I use 2 tablespoons of the chile paste instead of one.

Pork Tenderloin Diablo

Reviewed: Aug. 4, 2013
Absolutely amazing!! In our little home-town store I couldn't find a plain one, just marinated or peppercorn. So I got the peppercorn one and eliminated the salt and pepper seasoning. No need for a knife...it was fork tender and nothing short of 'splendiferous'!!!

Cornish Hens with Garlic Cream Cheese

Reviewed: Jun. 1, 2013
OUTSTANDING!! I've tried several game hen recipes, but all fell into the "blah" category until I found this one. It's amazing! I did find that one brick of cream cheese is plenty for two hens, and leaving it in the bird keeps it warm for spreading on the french bread. Wonderful!

French Onion Soup X

Reviewed: Feb. 12, 2013
Fantastic! I didn't have parmesan, so I used asiago, and used croutons instead of toast. This is superb!

Spicy Mac and Cheese Soup

Reviewed: May 11, 2012
Wonderful on a chilly night. However, I don't rinse the macaroni, I just drain it. The 'starch' makes for a thicker soup. I've also added bite sized chunks of browned ground beef to make it even heartier!!

Seafood Creole

Reviewed: Feb. 24, 2012
Absolutely wonderful! I didn't have any celery on hand, so I simply substituted celery salt for the table salt, and I added some sausage that needed to be used up. I served with just with garlic bread.

Reviewed: Feb. 12, 2012
This was WONDERFUL! I omitted the regular salt. I felt the seasoned salt was very adequate.

Chicken Marsala II

Reviewed: Dec. 8, 2011
You'll be much happier with the flavor of this dish if you use sweet marsala rather than dry. This recipe is equally good with veal instead of chicken! I make extra sauce and serve with wide egg noodles.

World's Best Lasagna

Reviewed: Nov. 20, 2011
Wonderful recipe, but I never cook the noodles! Lay first layer of dry noodles over the first layer of sauce (leaving a little room for them to 'grow'), and assemble as usual. Leave foil on for 45 minutes and remove for last 15 minutes. The noodles actually fully cook in the sauce and absorb the flavor of the sauce. It makes lasagna so much easier and faster to prepare.

Moroccan Lamb with Shiraz Honey Sauce

Reviewed: Oct. 30, 2011
This was amazingly delicious! The flavor from the ras el hanout rub was absolutely 'top shelf'. We felt like we had just dined in a 5-star restaurant. I made just a mushroom risotto to accompany it, and left-overs were non existent!! Wonderful!

Cha Cha's White Chicken Chili

Reviewed: Oct. 14, 2011
WONDERFUL, even though I didn't have sour cream on hand. I had a few sub rolls I had to use, so I stuck them under the broiler for a minute with butter & garlic powder for a quick & easy garlic bread. The bread helped to tone down the "zip" of the chili a bit, so it was a perfect combination. Definitely a keeper for those frosty nights!!

Slow Cooker Chicken Taco Soup

Reviewed: Jul. 10, 2011
This is wonderful on a chilly night. I had left over fully cooked chicken, so I just chunked it up and added it for the last couple of hours. I've also made it using browned ground beef and I once used some cut up hot sausage and served it with french bread for dipping. Very adaptable recipe. Thanks so much for sharing.

Gourmet Mushroom Risotto

Reviewed: Jun. 14, 2011
Wonderful flavor, but Arborio rice is extremely expensive, and I've found that sushi rice (Asian sticky rice) works equally as well and costs a lot less.

Veal Marsala

Reviewed: Mar. 8, 2011
Wonderful.........just make sure you use "sweet" marsala and not dry. That's where your flavor is.

Lamb Chops with Balsamic Reduction

Reviewed: Mar. 2, 2011
This was "top shelf"!!! My chops were over 1" thick, so cooked them a little longer per side (5-7 1/2 min) for medium rare. I didn't have shallots so used 1 T. minced garlic. Absolutely marvelous!!

Pie Crust IV

Reviewed: Feb. 12, 2011
Perfect as is, but try using orange juice (without pulp) instead of water. It not only gives it a little flavor, it also gives it a little color. Initially I only used the orange juice when baking a rhubarb pie, but it was so good that I now use it for all pies, even quiche.
