Roasted Vegetables

Reviewed: Nov. 23, 2011
I've never roasted veggies and decided to try this. Wow. I used turnips (which get almost sweet) carrots, red onion, sweet potato and butternut. I added some to the stew I was making and turned it into a completely new dish. My hubby loved it. This will be a staple in my recipe collection. Thanks Saundra.

Butternut Squash Bisque

Reviewed: Nov. 23, 2011
I made this in advance of the Thanksgiving dinner and found it to be bland. Having looked at some of the newer recipes on this soup, I took 1 cup of the "broth" before pureeing and cooked a diced Granny Smith in the microwave. I added to the soup pureed and it was wonderful.

Reviewed: Nov. 19, 2011
I make a version of this as well. I use ground sausage, giblets, walnuts, raisins and (the secret ingredient) sherry. What a wonderful time of year to share our tips..

Cranberry Sauce

Reviewed: Nov. 19, 2011
I haven't bought cranberry sauce in decades and found this to be the same as mine - so I love it. I didn't give it 5 stars because of the OJ. I agree about the calories but am also trying to minimize processed foods in our lives. I would recommend juicing 1 or 2 CLEMENTINES into the water/sugar mix. Zest a bit of the skin and you will absolutely love the taste, calories and the raves from the guests at your table. I use this sauce year round, thus I freeze small portions for the roast chickens I do throughout the year.

Another Pork Chop Casserole

Reviewed: Nov. 7, 2011
I tried this with boneless pork chops and it didn't really go over well. The sauce was too loose - milk? Sorry, but it just didn't work for me.

Bordelaise Sauce with Mushrooms

Reviewed: Sep. 8, 2011
The flavors blended well, however I didn't like adding cornstarch and simply thickened by reduction. Basically I didn't like the consistency - garlic and shallots not breaking down and adding the mushrooms made for a chunky sauce. I will try again.

Reviewed: Sep. 6, 2011
Needed a lst minute dishs to bring to a friends dinner party, chose this and it was a tremendous hit. I left out the amaretto (will try next time) and used orange zest and juice. It was wonderful - thanks Jean for sharing.

Mushroom Pepper Steak

Reviewed: Sep. 4, 2011
This gets 5 stars because my husband actually asked me to make it again. The flavors are great. I left out the tomatoes and added my own pickled ginger. Wow. It was fantastic. Thanks Billie, for sharing.

Banana Banana Bread

Reviewed: Aug. 11, 2011
I have a friend who has made this bread for our weekends away and recently asked for her recipe. Was I surprised when she forwarded the recipe from Allrecipes. The bread is the best I've ever had and makes me love this site even more.

Granola

Reviewed: Apr. 18, 2011
I have difficulty making granola. It's probably some genetic defect. I cooked this too long trying to get some crunch. It went from soggy to wooden. I found the flavors very bland. I'm for cooking with as little refined sugars as possible, but this needed more. I added honey and about 1/2 cup brown sugar and the fruit flavors perked. I clearly need some training regarding granola.

Black Bean and Couscous Salad

Reviewed: Mar. 21, 2011
I agree that this is a wonderful salad. It's a staple in our summer cookouts. As a change I add - not sub- soaked wheat berry. Wow - a great crunch. Thanks Paula..

Endive Pear Salad Bites With Maple Vinaigrette

Reviewed: Dec. 10, 2010
I served this at a party of over 50 people. Much of the food choices were catered, but this was one of my own additions. I used goat instead of gorgonzola but the result was just a delicious. This one dish generated more compliments than all the catered foods. Thank you for sharing this recipe. It will be a go-to for entertaining from now on.

Nutty Apple Crisp

Reviewed: Oct. 12, 2010
Sorry, but I just didn't like it. The topping was too compact - almost like a shell. I like more of a crumble. The fruit was too sweet. My teeth were aching from the syrup. I used a combo of Gala and Granny smith. Served it at a family dinner. Hubby likes it - he has a wicked sweet tooth tho.

Cranberry Nut Bread I

Reviewed: Oct. 7, 2010
If I could give this more than 5 stars I would. I've been making breads of all types for over 40 yrs and this is absolutely the best Cranberry Nut bread I've ever tasted. It is MOIST - truly. The addition of Orange zest and juice makes all the difference. I coursely chopped the cranberries and used the zest of a whole orange. I cheated and used 2 tblsp of frozen oj making sure the liquids came to almost 1 cup. It was perfect. this will be my go-to forever. Thanks Karin for discovering this wonderful equation of ingredients.

Slow Cooker Tapioca Pudding

Reviewed: Jan. 14, 2010
I have to agree it's easy. I prefer a bit more vanilla flavor so next time I'll add that. Key to success is stirring. I've tried other tapioca's that have worked with less attention. As it is, it's easy and flavorful...but I would prefer more flavor.

Chocolate Pinwheel Cookies

Reviewed: Dec. 9, 2009
These cookies came out looking beautiful. They had a fairly bland taste tho, and the chocolate was weak as well. I could have taken the weak vanilla, if the choc was standout.

Refrigerator Cookies

Reviewed: Dec. 9, 2009
I'm so sorry Dottie, I may have done something wrong. I cooked the first two trays and they melted together. Tried to capture something, but no luck. Thought they might have been too soft so froze for a day. Followed the 10 min thaw and cooked at 350F. By the time they were half done, they also puddled on the tray.

Caper Baked Chicken

Reviewed: Sep. 22, 2009
I will try this again. I will cut back on the lemon and search for a herb to balance the citrus and caper flavors. I usually go to garlic, but that would be too heavy for this dish. My husband doesn't like capers (I love them)and he didn't mind the flavors saying I could make the dish again. I loved the tenderness of the chicken and the short cook time. I will adapt other recipes to the 400 degree/covered rule. You cannot sub Worcester Sauce for the Steak sauce - The complex flavors of the Sauce work beautifully with the butter and caper juice. I will try it again.
