Swiss Chard with Garbanzo Beans and Fresh Tomatoes

Reviewed: Apr. 5, 2009
I had a lot of garden chard so I tried this recipe. It's so tasty! Adding the tomatoes last makes the whole dish taste fresh and "Springy". I used 2 packed cups chopped chard, leaves only (the stalks go into my veg stock). I also substituted 4 lg. cloves garlic for shallot, 1/2 med. onion for the green onions and 2 Roma tomatoes, as that's what I had on hand. This is now a favorite and in my recipe box!

Ham and Beans

Reviewed: Apr. 7, 2009
The cayenne! That gives this bean pot a real life! I used a ham hock I had in the freezer. I swear I see tomatoes in the photo, so I chopped two romas and added them last, just heating them through. This recipe is closer to my Mom's beans than I've ever been able to duplicate. Thanks! :)

Fried Green Tomatoes II

Reviewed: Dec. 7, 2009
I tried this recipe because I didn't have eggs on hand. I tried a batch per the recipe, then a few more with milk. The bread crumbs didn't stick either way. I guess the eggs are just essential!

Summer Herb Pesto

Reviewed: Jul. 22, 2010
This is a fabulous recipe for using the many herbs that are popping in the garden! I substituted chard for the spinach (darn! will plant spinach next year..) otherwise followed it to the letter. Served over tortellinis one night and had raves from the peanut gallery! After refrigerating and heating up 2 days later, served with linguine, another dinner table hit! I will keep this recipe for Pesto Chicken and any other pesto recipe that comes along. DEE-LISH!!

Dolmas (Stuffed Grape Leaves)

Reviewed: Jul. 22, 2010
Thanks for this great recipe! I have grapes and really wanted a good dolma recipe. This is IT! I reduced the cinnamon the 2nd time around, but don't eliminate it, the cinnamon is such an important flavor in this recipe! Oh, I also eliminated currants because i just don't like them.

Mama's Modified Crock Pot Apple Butter

Reviewed: Nov. 9, 2010
This is the best apple butter ever! My apple-butter-lovin' family swooned for the end product and, yes, it makes the whole house smell like heaven! I doubled the recipe for 8 *pounds* of apples ( I was gifted about 15 lbs. of field apples, and 8 lbs. filled my crockpot!), cut the sugar to total of 1 1/2 cups, and added another teaspoon of cinnamon at the demand of my hubby. I froze about 5 jars and kept the rest in the fridge for immediate consumption - it's almost gone... :) Thanks for sharing this yummy recipe!

Chicken Voila

Reviewed: Nov. 20, 2010
This is a GREAT recipe! I just whipped it up (it's that easy) to raves from the family! On it's own it is delicious, and the addition of lime juice and some capers made it another kind of special! This recipe could be tweaked with other spices and sides for a plethora of goodness... I'm going to make it with turkey leftovers next week. Thanks! "Try it, you'll like it!"

Crescent-Wrapped Brie

Reviewed: Dec. 14, 2010
Simple and beautiful! I will make this again for the holidays, it's that elegant. The imagination can go wild with this recipe at the core, but please try it as written first. It is fabulous unadorned! For additions I'd go with garlic, olives, parsley, pesto inside on top of the brie, sesame, poppy or caraway seeds outside... um! Can't wait to make it again!

Chicken Breasts with Olives

Reviewed: Apr. 18, 2013
So easy and SO good! Use fresh tarragon if you have it (don't substitute!) and double the amount of dried.

Baked Split Chicken Breast

Reviewed: May 29, 2013
This could be one of the tastiest chicken recipes I have ever tried! Made exactly to the recipe, but used less salt. I crushed the dried herbs in a mortar then sprinkled all over the chicken - delicious!!

Joel's Guinness Steak

Reviewed: Dec. 16, 2013
I added a tsp of sugar to try to cut the steak sauce "vinegary-ness" but still the sauce was too much. The new york steaks were tender and tasty, but did not use the sauce otherwise.

Cream Cheese Penguins

Reviewed: Dec. 20, 2013
These little guys are so darned cute! I added onion powder and 1/2 teaspoon garlic salt to the cream cheese and piped it in with a baggie. I made the tiny mistake of buying Colossal olives, and the toothpick barely made it through the plump penguins! So stick to the Jumbos. I found that the thinner you slice your carrots, the easier the "beak" fits into the slit on the head. Oh, what a yummy mouthful!
