Chocolate Trifle

Reviewed: Jul. 24, 2012
Made this over the weekend for a large family dinner and everyone loved it. I did change it a bit: instead of using cool whip with the pudding, I mixed a half pint of whipping cream for 10 minutes with the Kitchen Aid mixer and folded that in. I used vanilla Jello pudding instead of chocolate pudding to contrast the chocolate in the brownies, and then I mistakenly forgot to put in the sweetened condensed milk but it was so delicious! The pudding and cream tasted just like the French pastries I had in France! I didn't put candy on top but brought a bowl of crushed butterfingers (couldn't find Heath bar which would have been perfect) so people could sprinkle them on if they wanted. I used a trifle bowl so I did 3 layers rather than 2. I baked the brownies in a 9x13 glass Pyrex so it felt like I had more to cut up for the recipe. Will make this again just the way I did it here!

Marmalade Pork Tenderloin

Reviewed: Dec. 20, 2010
Delicious! So easy but be sure to save some marmalade for dipping. Even my 2 year old loved it! Paired it with the "Orzo with Parmesan and Basil" and was great!

Orzo with Parmesan and Basil

Reviewed: Dec. 20, 2010
I'm rating it a 4 but my husband says it's a 5 star dish and could eat it as an entire meal (even without meat in it and he has to have meat at each dinner). I think next time I'll add asparagus and mushrooms and more cheese. Very yummy though :)

Beef Bourguignon II

Reviewed: Dec. 20, 2010
Absolutely amazing! I'm not much of a cook (think grilled cheese...) and this was so easy, the house smelled amazing, and my husband was so impressed! I used 2 cloves of garlic, omitted the canned onions, substituted fresh mushrooms for the canned and added them with the onions and carrots. I also used wine to deglaze the pan and scrape up all the little yummy bits before sauteing the veggies. Will definitely make this again, thanks for the recipe!

Asparagus with Parmesan Crust

Reviewed: Dec. 20, 2010
Surprisingly not much flavor, kind of bland even with the cheese, pepper, and balsamic vinegar. Bummer.

The Best Rolled Sugar Cookies

Reviewed: Dec. 16, 2010
Made them for my entire extended family and every person said they were the best they had ever had. Many I've tried taste like play-doh but these were sweet with chewy center and crisp edges- delicious!
