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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

Vegetable Chowder

Reviewed: Mar. 13, 2011
This is a great recipe! I love hot, tasty dishes that also give you a heaping helping of vegetables. This dish tasted great and the chowder had an excellent consistency. For my three cups of cheese I used a cup of regular cheddar and two cups of extra sharp cheddar. Note that the quality of the cheese that you use will have a big effect on the taste of the finished product. I use a decent quality Cabot sharp cheddar and the results are fantastic. My prep time was substantially more than the 15 minutes estimated by the recipe, but the results were so good that this recipe will definitely be repeated!

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.

French Pastry Pie Crust

Reviewed: Nov. 13, 2012
Fantastic pie crust! Flavor is better than any pie crust you'll get at the grocery store. Watch the edges while baking because they can burn.

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.

Juiciest Hamburgers Ever

Reviewed: Nov. 13, 2012
Jucier than your average burger for sure, though I wasn't bowled over by the flavor. Has promise if you can figure out an ideal seasoning mix.
