Jamie's Cranberry Spinach Salad

Reviewed: Apr. 17, 2011
This is a delicious salad, and reasonably easy to make. The dried cranberries and toasted almond slivers were excellent together, and the dressing was very tasty. The only thing we did differently was serve the salad and dressing separately so everyone could dress their salad to their desired taste. Definitely a recipe we'll use again and again.

Cheesy Italian Tortellini

Reviewed: Nov. 23, 2011
This is very easy to make and everyone loves it. I make a couple of modifications: First, I use only Italian sausage and no ground beef, which imparts much more flavor. Secondly, I reduce the amount of shredded cheese I add. With the cheese in the tortellini I found that the dish just became too cheesy for us, though your tastes may vary. Finally, and most importantly, use a lot more tortellini than the recipe calls for. I always use at least a 16oz package, and even then there is still more than enough sauce.

Teena's Spicy Pesto Chicken and Pasta

Reviewed: Nov. 23, 2011
This is a tasty recipe and we'll repeat. Use whatever kind of pasta you prefer to eat. We used cavatappi and enjoyed it very much, but there's no reason you couldn't use anything else. Other than the type of pasta, we made no alterations. We found this to be both flavorful and spicy, even though some reviewers found it be neither. The quality of the chili paste may play a role. We used the Huy Fong stuff and found one tablespoon to be perfect. It gave it a nice kick, and any more probably would have been too much. I'll note that since this recipe doesn't have a traditional "sauce", the leftovers will dry out pretty quickly. By the next day the re-heated extras were decidedly disappointing. Best to eat it while it's hot and fresh!

Shredded Potato Quiche

Reviewed: Nov. 23, 2011
This is a great recipe. I find the cook time to be longer than indicated here, but otherwise it's an easy recipe to make and the results are filling and delicious. I always made this recipe with bacon instead of the ham, and I usually modify this recipe by adding 2 cups of chopped up vegetables (broccoli, cauliflower, carrots, peppers). If you add veggies you'll want to add an extra egg and some extra cheese to adequately cover the vegetables. A few reviewers have suggested adding chopped onion, but when I tried this I found that the onion flavor really overpowered the dish, so I never add onions anymore.

Oven-Roasted Asparagus

Reviewed: Apr. 17, 2011
This is a nice recipe, and definitely something we'll make regularly. We did make a couple of changes from the stated recipe: Definitely cut down on the salt, as others have stated. We did not use the lemon juice, and we sprinkled with shredded Parmesan after we took the asparagus out of the oven. 10 minutes at 425 yielded a very nice finished product.

Grilled Salmon I

Reviewed: Apr. 17, 2011
Really a nice recipe. This is very simple to prepare, and I'd rank it as the best salmon recipe our family has ever attempted. My wife and I both enjoyed it and will make it a regular main course. We followed the recipe precisely.

Chicken Enchiladas II

Reviewed: Feb. 27, 2014
This was pretty easy to make, but the flavor was definitely a disappointment. I followed the instructions other than using corn tortillas instead of flour (which I think improves the final product). Everything came out moist and creamy, but just had surprisingly little flavor. If I can figure out what it's missing I'll try it again, as the ease of preparation and the final texture were both satisfactory.

Italian Chicken Skillet

Reviewed: Nov. 23, 2011
This was an easy recipe to make, and the pasta/chicken combination was hearty and filling. However, I found the final flavor lacking and the leftovers didn't re-heat well. I don't plan on making this recipe again.

Delicious Black Bean Burritos

Reviewed: May 21, 2013
This was pretty good. As others have suggested, I added a little cumin, but otherwise prepared this as-is. The results were reasonably good both as a burrito and as a dip. I don't know why some people thought this made too much filling. Using the quantities in the recipe I was able to make 2 burritos, neither of them anywhere near bursting. I'll make this again, but next time I'll try some adding some cheese and/or salsa on top, as I think that would enhance the finished product.

Butternut Squash Soup

Reviewed: Nov. 16, 2012
This is a pretty good soup. As others have suggested, I roasted the squash ahead of time and cut the cream cheese in half and was pleased with the results. I also doubled the amount of cayenne pepper as some suggested. I enjoyed the final flavor but there's no doubt it was a little hot.

Tasty BBQ Corn on the Cob

Reviewed: Jun. 11, 2014
This recipe has potential, but when cooked as directed the finished product was a little disappointing. The butter of course melts as the corn cooks, and as it drips off the corn onto the foil it seems to take most of the seasoning with it. So while the corn was moist and cooked-through, it lacked the flavor punch I was expecting when I mixed up so much seasoning. I may try this again but applying the butter spread after I cook the corn.

Bacon Risotto

Reviewed: Nov. 13, 2012
Amazing. Best risotto recipe I've had. Flavor is off-the-charts. Note that any recipe starting with half a pound of bacon is going to be very rich. I've found that 4 cups of chicken stock is perfect for the 1.5 cups of arborio rice.

Salsafied Chicken and Rice

Reviewed: Nov. 13, 2012
The end result was pretty good. Some have advocated using "real" rice (e.g. non-instant rice). We tried that and it was difficult to get it to cook through, so I'll stick to the instant rice in the future.

Baked Ziti I

Reviewed: Nov. 13, 2012
Great ziti recipe. Served at a dinner party and it was a big hit. As others have noted, this will more than fill your baking dish. 16oz of noodles is a couple of ounces too much.

Parmesan Garlic Bread

Reviewed: Nov. 13, 2012
Delicious! As others have noted, if you're using salted butter you can just cut out the other salt altogether.
