Quiche Supreme

Reviewed: Sep. 15, 2014
This was absolutely amazing. I have been making quiche for a long time and I am so happy I have found this recipe. First, this recipe has taught me the mistake I have made in past was to follow the pie crust manufacturer for cooking times and temperatures, which caused overcooked and dried out crusts. For now on I will follow times and temps specified in this recipe, the crust was so light and buttery. The amounts were also perfect for 2 pies. I didn't have heavy cream so instead used 10% cream and it was great. I also varied the cheese mix based on what I had on hand (2 year old cheddar, swiss cheese, medium cheddar). Once the onion started to caramelize I added the green pepper and ham to the pan. I didn't have dried tarragon and forgot to add the vinegar and it turned out just fine as is. I especially like that this recipe is for 2 pies; I will freeze one for later. THANK YOU!!

Asparagus Chicken Crepes

Reviewed: Feb. 7, 2012
These were great and relatively easy. I made the crepes ahead of time and kept them in the fridge until ready to roll with filling. I used a can of condensed soup. Instead of mayo/heavy cream on top I whipped together 1/2 fat olive oil mayo with 10% cream. I only did a light sprinkling of parmesan just before broiling. I think I was able to save some calories and fat without compromising taste. This was my first time making crepes and definitely not the last. There were a couple of extra uncoiled crepes leftover that I will freeze for another meal.

Sausage Cabbage Skillet

Reviewed: Nov. 8, 2011
My husband only wanted to give this dish 3 stars but I thought it deserved more so I split the difference at 4. This was a great alternative to our usual Sausage, Cabbage, and Noodles. The addition of kale I happened to have added some nice contrast. I sliced my potatoes very thin using a mandolin. I found it took much longer than 15 minutes to cook the cabbage down to the desired consistency; closer to 45 min. to 1 hour on low. If I make this again I will probably add some cooked bacon for added flavour.

Red and Green Christmas Jalapeno Jelly

Reviewed: May 16, 2011
This turned out excellent despite being a novice jelly maker. My big mistake was using too small a pot and too high a temperature which caused the mix to boil over making one heck of a mess. I substituted lemon drop chili peppers (home grown) and sweet yellow pepper because I needed to find something to make with the excess of chili peppers my plants are producing. I served the jelly with cream cheese and crackers and it was awesome. I may leave the seeds and ribs in next time to see if that gives an extra little kick.

Spinach and Potato Frittata

Reviewed: Feb. 6, 2011
This was delicious. The only reason I gave it 4 stars instead of 5 was because I found the top of the frittata did not set. This was a perfect opportunity to pull out the blow torch to finish cooking the eggs and lightly brown the cheese.

Steamed Lobster Tails

Reviewed: Feb. 4, 2011
I made this for my husband and he loved it (I don't eat lobster). I took the advice of others and cut the time down to 5 minutes. I have made this twice now and it has turned out perfect both times. I also threaded the lobster with a short skewer to prevent any curling and added a garlic clove to the water as others suggested. Thanks so much for posting this recipe for us land lubbers who know little about cooking seafood.

Spinach, Caramelized Onion, and Muenster Au Gratin Potatoes

Reviewed: Feb. 4, 2011
This was excellent. We didn't have Muenster cheese, so instead used a mix of old cheddar and garlic & dill cheddar. I used just milk instead of half milk/half cream and it turned out just fine. This is a really easy and flexible recipe. A nice way to use up fresh spinach. Thanks for posting this recipe.

Filet Mignon with Rich Balsamic Glaze

Reviewed: Feb. 4, 2011
I wish I had a time machine so that I could undo ruining two beautiful filet mignons. The meat ended up being chewy and tough. The balsamic vinegar and wine was too sweet and took away any flavor of meat. I tried giving this 0 stars but for some reason the rating system won't let me.

Curried Cauliflower

Reviewed: Jan. 31, 2011
I really enjoyed this. The first time I made it I followed the recipe exactly and it was so good. The second time I made it I tried to modify the recipe so there would be fewer calories and fat. I cut back on the mayonaise and omitted the butter and crackers. It just wasn't the same. I recommend following the recipe as is.
