Cavatelli and Broccoli

Reviewed: Apr. 13, 2004
An easy recipe but, as others have said, a bit on the bland side. I did add a bit of chicken stock to 'juice' it up a bit. Not the best, but certainly not the worst. The starchy cavatelli is a comfort food for sure!

Killer Cheesecake

Reviewed: Apr. 13, 2004
Very rich and creamy. I took the advice of others before me and decided to cut the butter down by 1/2. It worked out very well. I also used a spring form pan and would suggest that if you also decide to use one that you use the smaller one (8",I think--in a water bath) for a New York cheesecake look. I didn't wait the 2 hour cool down bfore adding the sour cream and it didn't seem to affect the final result. Topped off with sugared strawberries, this cheesecake was an Easter hit!

Cream of Broccoli Soup I

Reviewed: Feb. 11, 2004
This was the first time I had attempted to make a cream of broccoli soup. After reading through a few different recipes, I decided on this one...and I'm SO glad I did! Not only was it easy to make, but it was delicious to eat. I did cut down on the onion, used 1/2 & 1/2, and increased the butter to 1/3 of a cup to match the amount of flour. I also made sure to add the nutmeg--it added a nice flavor as well as aroma. The best part, as always, was cooking it with my 4 y/o who was very proud of her work! Yum!

Hearty Homemade Tomato Sauce

Reviewed: Dec. 3, 2003
I was looking for a sauce to make with some of the last tomatoes of the season (from greenhouse) that was a little out of the ordinary. This recipe was easy and tasty. Although not one I'd serve over pasta often, I can imagine how good it would be as a sauce for baked chicken and the like. A few changes that I made: I used about a dozen fresh tomatoes instead of canned, omitted the parsley and added tarragon, basil & a bay leaf. I also salted and peppered to taste and added a few teaspoons of tomato paste for more of a tomato flavor.

Skillet Chops with Mushroom Gravy

Reviewed: Aug. 7, 2003
Five Stars because it is such a versile and simple recipe! Tried it just the way it reads and it was a hit with the whole family--even those who don't care for mushrooms. Tried it the next time with chicken cutlets and cream of broccoli with a bit of lemon juice--also very good! A nice basic recipe that doesn't have you spending hours in the kitchen.

Manicotti Alla Romana

Reviewed: Jun. 11, 2003
No question--the best homemade 'bannana potty' (as my 3 y/o calls it!) hands down! It does take a little more time, but worth the effort. The only changes I made were to leave out the parsly and basil as the pasta sauce (marinara) I used did the trick. Thanks, Mark, for sharing your secrets!

Veggie Pot Pie

Reviewed: May 27, 2003
I don't often write reviews, but this one deserved looking up my password to log on! My picky 3 y/o asked for more!! I did add 1-2 tbl spoons of cornstarch for a thicker sauce as recommended by other users. It was refreshing to have a meal that was FRESH--I used carrots, potatoes, green beans, peas, celery, onion, garlic and broccoli. I also used Pillsbury refrigerated pie crusts--delicious! Not being vegetarian, I think it would be just as good with chicken or turkey added as well! A keeper for sure!

Baked Pork Chops I

Reviewed: Sep. 30, 2002
Disappointing. I thought I'd found a winner when I saw this recipe so highly rated. The only changes I made to the recipe were to add sauteed mushrooms to the sauce and to cut the cooking time to 25/25 as I was cooking only 3 chops. They were still very dry--I can't imagine 60/30! And I wasn't crazy about the sauce either--too much wine maybe? My husband was kind to my cooking and said it was ok, but I noticed even he did not clear his plate. I'm taking this one OUT of my recipe box.
