Creamy Mushroom Risotto

Reviewed: Mar. 23, 2009
DELICIOUS. This is a pretty time intensive recipe but easy to follow, and simple in terms of ingredients. Maybe it's not a traditional risotto but when you have 2 toddlers running wild around you, a simpler, easier recipe that results in a delicious end result is a weclome thing no matter what some naysayers might have to say. I will definitely be making this again. I made it easier by cutting corners like heating my water and stock in a microwaveable measuring cup. I mixed in some asiago cheese at the end and it gave it a great flavor. Anyone who wants a flavorful, satisfying side should definitely try this recipe. I bet you could make this a main course by mixing in a boat load of veggies in the beginning, or using some grilled chicken or shrimp.

Ricotta Cheese Pancakes

Reviewed: Mar. 11, 2009
I give this one three stars for a few reasons. My first attempt resulted in pancakes that I probably would not eat again. They were not really cooked through, and a little mushy. Following the recipe, I found the batter so thick that I couldn't even mix it well so I added about a quarter cup of skim milk. This made my batter a great consistency but may have been the reason for the overall mushiness. I am also not a huge one for exact measurements, which hindsight has shown me is probably necessary for this recipe. I will try this again because the idea is still so good to me and I think I can get it right. I normally wouldn't down a recipe that failed because of user error but I still gave this one 3 stars because I believe that it needs to be tweaked somehow, just not the way I tweaked it this time.

Gravy Baked Pork Chops

Reviewed: Mar. 3, 2009
This was extremely easy to make and it was a big hit with my husband and my kids. It did not take long at all to get this in the oven, and when I had about 5 minutes to go in there, I took it out and topped it with french fried onions. That was a delightful flavor and texture for this dish!

Quiche

Reviewed: Jan. 19, 2009
Super easy to prepare and it comes out so fluffy and delicious! It was like a perfect combination of cheese and egg in every bite. Even my husband who normally sticks his nose up at quiche admitted that he liked it. I used pepperoni instead of ham and while it was good, I'd love to try it with some diced ham next time. This is a fast, delicious recipe, perfect for breakfast, lunch or dinner!

Reviewed: Dec. 31, 2008
This recipe was very easy to follow, very quick to cook, and delicious to eat. We dipped cubes of french bread and red pepper spears in it, and it was delicious!
