Asparagus Wrapped in Crisp Prosciutto

Reviewed: Jan. 6, 2013
This was a HUGE hit for the New Year's Eve party I attended! These changes made this appetizer a 5-star recipe (or else it would have been a 2-3 star recipe!) DEFINITELY take the advice of many others: smear on a generous layer of cream cheese to each slice of prosciutto. Make sure the prosciutto slices are very thin. Also - bake for only about 4 minutes total! No parmesan cheese necessary (like other reviewers recommended). It is way too salty with the parmesan cheese. A tasty, unique app! Keep in mind though...both asparagus and prosciutto can be quite pricey.

Easter Breakfast Casserole

Reviewed: Jan. 6, 2013
This was pretty good, but the bacon ended up tasting like ham since it became moist after baking. Sausage would have been better.

Slow Cooker Teriyaki Pork Tenderloin

Reviewed: Jan. 6, 2013
MY ENTIRE FAMILY LOVES THIS! Here are some changes I made for the second time: more garlic, more pepper, cut the brown sugar in half, and added 1/2 tsp of salt. This will give it a more tangy flavor. If you prefer super sweet, stick with the original recipe. SOOOO good!

Sweet Potato, Carrot, Apple, and Red Lentil Soup

Reviewed: Jan. 6, 2013
Do yourself a favor, and MAKE THIS SOUP! I prepared this soup for our annual holiday progressive dinner. Since I usually provide the "soup" portion of the dinner, I wanted to try something a little unique. I was very worried this recipe would be a little odd to most people (and my husband thought I was crazy for trying it on a group of 15 adults), but everyone loved it! I followed the advice of the other reviewers and did not puree the soup. However, since I made the soup the night before the event, the soup kind of pureed itself a bit after sitting for 24 hours. Like the others, I did not find red lentils, so I just used what was available. When I make this again, I will add more lentils - they are so good! I doubled the recipe and was so glad I did - - I had yummy leftovers for 2 days. MY REVISIONS: I sprinkled a bit of pumpkin pie spice on my bowl of soup, which was very yummy! Also - sorry vegetarians, but I added a pound of crumbled sage sausage to give the soup a little more oomph. A great addition!
