Cabbage Soup II

Reviewed: Feb. 11, 2008
Made it exactly as is. So very good. Even hubby loved it and he's not a fan of cabbage. The barley totally makes this recipe great, so don't skip it. After we'd all eaten, there wasn't much broth left, so we added more for leftovers the next day. I agree with a previous reviewer that serving it over pasta is unnecessary.

Cube Steak Parmesan

Reviewed: Aug. 15, 2007
This was a good and simple idea for a different spin on cube steak. I'm not a cube steak fan, and it didn't miraculously turn me into a fan, but it was better than I've had it other ways. I did like how the steaks were cooked first and then the sauce spooned on after they were mostly done.

Ground Turkey Casserole

Reviewed: Apr. 11, 2007
I couldn't eat more than three bites. The cream cheese was overpowering, and everything else was just bland. I did add garlic and onion to the turkey along with paprika, but it cheese sauce was just too rich to taste anything else.

Charlotte's Tortellini Soup

Reviewed: Apr. 11, 2007
I've been making this recipe for so long and I love it. My only complaint is that the tortellini do absorb too much of the broth. It never occured to me to cook them separately and add them to the bowls. Great tip!

Margarita Chicken II

Reviewed: Apr. 11, 2007
This was super easy, delicious, and looked great on the plate. And it's healthy to boot! We'll definitely be making this again.

Brie Cheese Appetizer

Reviewed: Apr. 11, 2007
I also used raspberry preserves - my favorite. The preserves sorta leaped out of the cheese and seeped into the dough and was absorbed. I served it with warmed preserves for dipping and that returned us to super yummy. I don't know if that would have happened with the original apricot, which aren't as runny as berry preserves.

Scallops with White Wine Sauce I

Reviewed: Apr. 11, 2007
I think my mistake was making the sauce too early (it really should be made dead last). I tried to keep it warm by seating the pot in a pot of boiling water and covering, but it didn't work. The sauce (which had looked thick and oozy fabulous) separated and I had a layer of melted butter atop a layer of cream. I brought it to a rolling boil hoping to salvage it, but it was a disaster. Looked and tasted awful.

Texas Caviar with Avocado

Reviewed: Apr. 11, 2007
So easy that when I was done making it I was disappointed, sure it couldn't live up to the rave reviews. Never happier to be so wrong! This was delicious! I'm not a fan of jalepeno or avocado, but even I couldn't stop eating it! I served it Bruchetta-style, and that worked well. Next time I'll do tortilla chips.

Potato and Cauliflower Casserole

Reviewed: Jan. 18, 2007
This is a good basic recipe. It was a fine dish, and I enjoyed it. DH found it bland. It's not something I would serve to guests. I made some modifications based on what I had available, and on the other reviews. I used unpeeled red potatoes, medium cheddar instead of swiss, and had no cream, so I used milk. It didn't suffer at all for the milk. The cheddar flavor was nice, but I felt it still needed something. Next time, I will try this with fresh bacon crumbles and feta mixed in. It was a nice variation on cauliflower, and my daughter ate the cauliflower here.

Mango Pineapple Salad with Mint

Reviewed: Jul. 3, 2006
This is a nice variation on summer fruits. Unfortunately, I couldn't find any fresh flaked coconut, and was sure I had dried coconut flakes at home, but didn't so, we did this without coconut. While still yummy, I've had mango with fresh coconut before and it's divine, so I know this would have been better with the coconut. I did IMVINTAGE's dressing, and liked it - it made everything a little stickier and more salad like.

Garlicky Summer Squash and Fresh Corn

Reviewed: Jul. 3, 2006
This was yummy. I followed the directions with just a few changes. I too subbed fresh basil/oregano at the end for parsley just for a little kick. And added fresh diced tomatoes. I added the butter and the tomatoes at the end, and then put it in a covered dish and let the butter melt on the way to the party, and the tomatoes just warmed, which was perfect. Good flavors here, and colorful to boot.

Spinach Cantaloupe Salad with Mint

Reviewed: Jul. 3, 2006
This was a huge hit at our Fourth of July party. First of all, it is beautiful with the colors and the layered look so it makes an impression before anyone even tastes it. Then the apple/mint jelly takes 'em by surprise and the raving continues. I couldn't find apple mint jelly, so I bought both apple and mint and used 2TBSP of apple and 1TBSP of mint. I mixed the chopped mint in with the dressing too, and applied the dressing just before serving. I also struggled with the avocado at first, not able to get pretty slices. Finally, I sliced it in half long ways, and removed the pit. Then I turned each half open side down, and sliced it like you would a pepperoni. Then the skin peeled off each slice surprisingly easily.

Guilt-free Creamy Cajun Seafood Pasta

Reviewed: Apr. 13, 2006
I liked this meal for the variety it added to our normal menu, but I found the sauce bland. The texture was perfect, but the thing I tasted most was the flour. I think next time, I'll halve the flour, double the parmesan, double the thyme and try to work in some additional flavor. Not sure what: may experiment with garlic, or sundried tomatoes, or paprika.

Light Cream of Asparagus Soup

Reviewed: Apr. 13, 2006
This soup is fabulous and couldn't be any easier. Healthy to boot! Eating this, hubby said "Cooknik is a good thing in our lives." My 2 year old is a picky eater, but I managed to get this into her by making it the sauce on her pizza. I modified the mozzarella bread. First I mixed 3 cloves of diced garlic with softened butter, then spread that onto the bread. Covered with the mozzarella cheese and very thin sliced tomatoes and a sprinkle of black pepper.

Japanese Chicken Katsu

Reviewed: Apr. 13, 2006
This was very good. I think the panko is what really makes this meal something special. The sauce is quite good, and the flavor surprised me because we regularly mix combinations of the sauce ingredients, but this was a new flavor. We served this with the suggested sides, and also with Edamame. Fast, simple, good.

Pam's Spicy Black Bean Soup

Reviewed: Apr. 13, 2006
I enjoyed this as a fast meal, and a healthy one, but it didn't especially impress me. I'll make it again, as an in-a-pinch meal.

Coconut Pumpkin Nut Bread

Reviewed: Dec. 1, 2005
I made this with 2c fresh pumpkin puree. It is just fabulous! I made some with walnuts and some without, and I preferred without, but I'm not a big fan of nuts to begin with.

Roasted Beets and Sauteed Beet Greens

Reviewed: Nov. 5, 2004
I am AMAZED. I tried this recipe because I felt stuck in a vegetable rut. I wanted a veggie we don't eat often. I was wary because hubby doesn't like beets and I don't care for greens. But I tried it and it is SENSATIONAL. Hubby loved it, I loved it. The greens were the surprise hit. And felt great getting two veggies out of one. I added butter and a bit more oil because it didn't seem like enough. This was a mistake as my greens turned out a bit too oily/buttery. Perfect as is. THANKS!

Fudgy Chocolate Fondue

Reviewed: Oct. 13, 2004
This is terrific if you're careful with it, but if you neglect to stir it constantly, it is thin and bitter with all the ingredients clumping at the bottom of your fondue pot, and burning there. Still if you're attentive to it, it's quit yummy.
