Very good. I used "Honey Brown" for the beer and added about two tablespoons honey.

Holiday Hot Spinach Dip

Reviewed: Mar. 24, 2014
Possibly the best spinach dip I have ever had. I did add more cream than was called for to get a better dip consistency. Have made this on several occasions with positive feedback from everyone who tried it.

Stuffed Peppers My Way

Reviewed: Mar. 24, 2014
Good basic meatless stuffed peppers (especially for a Friday during Lent). I left out the feta (forgot about it) but didn't miss it during dinner. I also used red, orange, green, and yellow bell peppers. The colors were very nice for presentation. (Leftovers were good as well.)

Lemon Sauce II

Reviewed: Mar. 16, 2014
The orange flavor does overpower the lemon, but the lemon is still present. Overall a nice simple topping.

Irish Apple Cake

Reviewed: Mar. 16, 2014
I thought this was just OK. Cooked for five minutes longer than suggested and the "dough" was still a bit underdone. that being said this is not at all a cake consistency. It really is a dough rather than a batter. The taste was alright but not very flavorful. The lemon sauce is a must.

Basil Chicken over Angel Hair

Reviewed: Jan. 20, 2014
I prepared as instructed (with the exception of using campellini pasta since I had it on hand, and using cayenne pepper instead of hot sauce). I thought the final product somewhat lacked flavor and was too pasta heavy. I will make again and hopefully correct these shortcomings by using: 1.25 to 1.5 times the chicken called for, 3 cloves garlic, 1 cup onion, and 4 cups finely diced roma tomatoes, and adding 1 teaspoon dried oregano.

Spinach Tomato Tortellini

Reviewed: Nov. 24, 2013
Excellent dish. I followed the recipe as provided with the exception of using frozen spinach and it worked out fine. Next time I will add some lump crab meat to the meal.

Fiesta Pinwheels

Reviewed: Sep. 16, 2013
Tasty. I thought it had a good amount of spice. However, as something that is not only supposed to be good to eat but have an appealing look, this doesn't quite cut it. The brown color from the taco seasoning make these not great for presentation. Try this for a good presentation: http://allrecipes.com/recipe/party-pinwheels/detail.aspx

Tangy Tomato Tart (Pie)

Reviewed: Sep. 8, 2013
Followed the recipe as is with changes as per the AR Magazine. I also used Roma tomatoes, so as to have less liquid in the pie. I think this helped greatly, since the pie was still just a touch on the too moist side. Also, instead of fresh herbs I used dry. That way they could be added into the pie mix and baked in without being burned. I layered the generously sliced tomatoes half-stacked on one another so that there was basically two layers, to help give the tart some depth. Finally, I had plenty of pie crust left over (home made) so I cut strips and laid criss-cross over the top. Taste: not as "tangy" as the recipe name would indicate. Not sure how to do it, but if the "tangy" factor could be raised would really be a great dish. However, was quite a nice dish. Even as a leftover it was good. Will definitely make again.

Basic Flaky Pie Crust

Reviewed: Sep. 8, 2013
Will use as a basic pie crust recipe. Changes: Use vinegar instead of water. Chill everything (except flour, but it could be chilled as well), including bowl. Instead of shortening I used margarine for a savory crust. Use butter or shortening for a sweet dish.

Broccoli Cheese Pie

Reviewed: Sep. 8, 2013
Followed the recipe with the minor changes from the AR Magazine. First of all, the photo of the dish was very different. The finished product was an unpleasing grayish color. No way to get it to look like that without doing the following extra steps: after finishing as per recipe cover with layer of cheese, layer of broccoli, layer of mushrooms, and layer of onions. Now for the taste.... I was disappointed. It wasn't bad, but wasn't very good. Just kind of bland. Basically, not something you would want to eat, but if made your not going to go hungry. Will not make again.

Dad's Kickin' Jamaican Wings, Mon

Reviewed: Feb. 17, 2013
First of all the presentation was not so good. The wings were a very odd and unappealing green color. Beyond that the flavor was bland and in no way "Kickin"

Breaded Flounder Fillets

Reviewed: Mar. 25, 2011
Sorry for the poor rating... but this was just not good at all. I followed the recipe exactly (other than cutting everything in half. I did use frozen flounder but properly thawed it before cooking. The fish came out mushy and the flavor was lacking.

Granny's Corn Flour Tortillas

Reviewed: Feb. 10, 2011
These were good, but not quite what I had hoped. This may have been something I did wrong but for some reason these turned out very stiff after letting them achieve the slightest browning. If I pulled them off the pan before they turned stiff you could taste that they were not done. Any suggestions?

Taco Seasoning I

Reviewed: Feb. 10, 2011
Excellent (with a few minor adjustments). In place of the crushed red pepper I used 1/8 tsp cayenne pepper. Also added 1 tbs corn starch (as per some other recipes used for holding the mix onto the meat). Use ~2.5 tbs per 1 pound of ground beef.

Tomato Brie Bow Tie Pasta

Reviewed: Feb. 6, 2011
Good, quick dish! I did agree with previous reviewers that it was a bit sweet by itself. However, paring it with a spinach salad and a glass of shiraz made it quite balanced overall. I disagree with other reviewers who say to increase the Brie or decrease the pasta. There is a distinct taste of Brie in the dish and I believe more would be too much. The amount of pasta is also just right. Cutting the pasta in half as one reviewer recommended would result in pasta floating in a sauce. I made this dish in February. However, I think it would be best as a light dish during a cool summer evening. (A good option for those going for Meatless Mondays too.) Cheers!

Actually Delicious Turkey Burgers

Reviewed: Feb. 4, 2011
Good turkey burger. Not as dry as many others. I did add worcestershire and diced jalapenos and I think they were a great addition to the final flavor.
