Butternut Squash Pizzas with Rosemary

Reviewed: Oct. 8, 2010
Did a light covering of pizza sauce on the dough before baking. Also did not use fresh rosemary as I have a lot of dried (I live in France). And used a LOT more than 2TBSP of cheese. This was the perfect recipe to use up that half of a butternut I had sitting in the fridge. Merci beaucoup!

Irish Lamb Stew

Reviewed: Mar. 20, 2010
I just moved to Paris with my husband but we enjoy celebrating St. Patrick's Day so I thought, why not make a true Irish Stew? And this recipe appeared and so I just had to make it. I can only say that I've never had lamb as good as what I bought from the boucherie here in Paris - the lamb even days later just MELTS in your mouth. I ended up 1/2-ing the recipe because frankly, between two people there was more than enough even for two nights leftovers, and we don't have a massive pot here in Paris. Ended up posting this recipe to FB because it was too good not to share. Heavenly!

Melt - In - Your - Mouth Shortbread

Reviewed: Jan. 18, 2009
I used Spelt flour and was worried these would literally melt-in-your-hand-and-mouth, but the flour prooved to stand up to this recipe. Also, I don't recommend decorating with Maracchino cherries as they caused the cookies to be soft, and not crisp. Next time, I'll use candied cherries instead.

Harvest Salad

Reviewed: Jan. 18, 2009
Amazing, healthy recipe! I read some of the other reviews to get ideas on how this salad could be improved. Avacados were not really in season, so I used one avacado (small), and 1/2 of a Granny Smith apple. I also was fortunate to have Trader Joe's Sweet & Spicy Pecans kicking around, which took out the 'toasting' aspect of the walnuts. The red onion can be a bit overpowering, even though the recipe calls for only using 1/2. I'll do 1/3 of a red onion next time. Finally, I didn't end up using all the dressing as I don't like an overly-dressed salad, and I added the blue cheese on top of the salad instead of mixing it in with the rest of the ingredients for fear of the cheese getting really sticky. I will definitely make this recipe again!
