Cretons

Reviewed: Jan. 24, 2009
My mother-in-law makes this every Christmas. Her recipe is slightly different. She uses twice the ground pork (2 lbs). She also uses 3-5 slices of white bread (without the crusts) that she mixes with water to make a paste..she uses the bread paste instead of breadcrumbs and milk. Mmmm...what a treat!

Mediterranean Harvest Pasta

Reviewed: Jul. 13, 2009
I also left out the blender and served the sauce chunky. Simple, yummy, and light.

Tuna Noodle Casserole I

Reviewed: Jan. 24, 2009
This was easy to make and turned out great. I love that this version doesn't use a can of condensed cream soup. I used half and half instead of milk to enrich the flavor. I also used 2 cans of tuna since one didn't seem like enough. And a little red pepper flakes gave it a nice kick. Other than that I followed the recipe exactly. Tastes like Mom used to make.

Shrimp Scampi II

Reviewed: Jan. 24, 2009
I'm giving this a 4.5. It's yummy! My husband just made this dish with a few changes. We didn't have any wine, so he used about 3/4 cup of Dry Sherry. He sauteed some chopped onion and garlic in about 1/2 the butter this recipe called for. Then added the sherry, broth, and red pepper flakes. He skipped the flour as was suggested by others. He used the juice of an entire lemon and it wasn't too lemony. The sauce was allowed to reduce a little and then he added about 1/2 cup pasta water to reconstitute it a bit. He added the shrimp at the very end and allowed it to cook in the sauce. Next time we'd add some mushrooms, artichoke hearts, and/or shallot.

Beef Stroganoff III

Reviewed: Jan. 21, 2009
I thought this was tasty. We certainly didn't have any problems finishing it since we kept going back for seconds. However, my husband insisted there was something missing from this dish...perhaps some rosemary. He followed the recipe almost exactly except he used a slightly better cut of beef and he accidentally used too much sour cream (so it was extra tangy). All in all, we'll definitely make this again. Good easy comfort food for a cold day.
