Sauteed Garlic Asparagus

Reviewed: Apr. 5, 2007
I saute asparagus all the time, but to make this recipie into a 5* I use olive oil that will not burn so easily, a tbsp. of balsamic vinegar and a tbsp. of minced garlic and don't cover it as it'll get soggy. I use a teflon frying pan and stir fry/toss it for 3 - 4 minutes. When it's ready, I sprinkle with fresh grated parmasen cheese, salt and pepper.

Stuffed Potatoes

Reviewed: Aug. 19, 2006
Awesome and if you don't have the prepared dip, use one 500 ml (16 0z) tub of light sour cream and one pkg. of onion soup mix, let sit to absorb flavors and add cheese. Great and really hold the heat.

Best Burgers Ever

Reviewed: Nov. 23, 2008
I thought these were very good. I probably had about 1.5 lbs. of ground lamb and cut the garam masala back by half as I feared my 11 year old wouldn't eat it. I got a recipe for garam masala off the internet: 1/2 tsp. cumin, 1/2 tsp. paprika, 1/4 tsp. cinnamon, 1/4 tsp. cayene powder, 1/8 tsp. ground cloves. Everyone liked it and I will use the suggested amount next time.

Greek Style Potatoes

Reviewed: Apr. 13, 2003
WOW, all I can say is these are far better than any greek restaurant's lemon roasted potatoes. I cut back the water by half and two hours was perfect, and I tossed them three times during the cooking process. Thank you Cathie!!!

Reviewed: Jun. 18, 2012
I used 1 Tbsp. olive oil and 1 Tbsp. bacon fat and sauted 2 cloves of garlic with 3 leeks [that's how my grocery store sells in a bunch]. Only used 4 potatoes and 4 cups of chicken stock. PERFECT.

Sausage and Bean Ragout

Reviewed: Jun. 3, 2010
Fabulous. I doubled the sausage and omitted the beef. Used one 28 oz. can of plum tomatoes that I had immulsified with a hand blender and added fresh thyme, parsley, basil and dry oregano. Simmered until thickened and then added the pasta. Couldn't stop eating it and kids/hubby also gave it two thumbs up. Made it a second time w/ half italian sausage and half ground turkey. Great too!!

Jack Wilson's Slaw Dressing

Reviewed: Jul. 18, 2002
This recipie was terrible. I only used three tablespoons of celery seed because that's all I had. My kids spit it out. My husband had one bite and wouldn't eat it. The celery seed bitterness spoiled a lot of good cabbage.

Pull-Apart Easter Blossom Bread

Reviewed: Apr. 24, 2011
Amazing. I'm Ukrainian and grew up with my baba's Easter bread so can attest that this bread's texture is spot on. It is also NOT bland and is the way it is supposed to be. My only comment is that with the raspberry and glaze, it was too sweet for us and more like a danish. I would cut the jam and glaze in half next time. The "flower" thing did take some practice, but the second one was much prettier.

Cream of Cauliflower Soup I

Reviewed: Mar. 5, 2006
Very Good. I scaled down the milk/whipping cream liquid to 1 c. half & half for the right consistency for me. My opinion is that another c. would have made the soup too watery. Start off with half and add to your liking.

Slow Cooker Stuffing

Reviewed: Dec. 25, 2010
I sauted all the veggies, spices and 3 minced garlic cloves. I also added the stock to the beaten eggs (mixing with a fork as I added the liquid), then poured it all over the bread crumbs so the egg was more evenly distrubuted. Will continue to be our favorite stuffing.

Brunch Omelet Torte

Reviewed: May 30, 2010
This was wonderful, albeit a lot of work in the morning, at least an hour+. Next time I'll make it the night before and leave it in the fridge, putting the egg wash on just before it goes into the oven. Alternately, at least cook your potatoes & onions, grate the cheese and put the pastry in the fridge from the freezer the night before. Got rave reviews from my 8 guests.

Carrot Cake VIII

Just an average carrot cake, the icing was much better than average. One of my 4 yr. olds liked it and the other didn't.

Rotisserie Chicken

Reviewed: Nov. 26, 2009
Oh my goodness; did I ever get rave reviews from my family and guests. No other BBQ chicken for my family now. I did cut back the salt to 2 tsps. and placed it in a tin foil plate in the center of the BBQ with the middle burner off. Used a digital thermometer and my 3.5 lb. chicken only took one hour. Have tried this on bone in chicken breasts adding the rub half way through and using a digital thermometer to 180 degrees. Yummo, so tender & juicy.

Classic Tiramisu

Reviewed: Mar. 9, 2006
I had to make this dessert three hours before a dinner party, so made the ladyfingers off this site which were easy. If you're using a springform pan only make them 3 - 4 inches long or you'll be doing a lot of trimming. It's understandable that it wasn't quite set five hours later when we ate, but even though I added 1/4 c. of Kahlua to the batter in addition to brushing the ladyfingers, I found it had a wonderful consistency, but needed more flavor. I would try this again and add some cocoa (1 tbsp perhaps)during the mixing stage, prior to folding the two batters together.
