Reuben Sandwich II

Reviewed: Mar. 4, 2006
My husband's favorite sandwich is a reuben, and he usually goes to a local deli for one. I wanted to be able to make them at home for him, can I came upon this recipe--it was very well received!! I've made it several times since I found it in early 2005, and the only change I make is to use a little more thousand island dressing than the recipe calls for since that is my husband's favorite part

Three Berry Pie

Reviewed: Jul. 29, 2001
This is such a great pie recipe; I've made it often since I first rated it in 2001. Both my husband and I just love it (he says it is the best pie he has ever had!). The first time I made this, I just used strawberries, blueberries and raspberries, but I now make it with a mixture of fresh strawberries, blueberries, and raspberries, as well as blackberries--this makes it even yummier!! I also use 1/4 cup cornstarch.

Cajun Dirty Rice

Reviewed: Jan. 20, 2007
I made this tonight, and it was great! I served it with cornbread, and it was an awesome meal! I did made some changes, though. I halved the recipe because it was only for 2 people, but as other people suggested I doubled the amount of dirty rice mix (so in my case I used 1 box of the mix). Even with making only 1/2 the recipe, I still had plenty of rice leftover--it will make great lunches along with the leftover cornbread. The changes I made included adding some green and yellow bell peppers, as well as 3 cloves of crushed garlic. I also doubled the amount of tomatoes with chilis, as I like tomatoes and spicy food. Also, since I am a vegetarian, I used meatfree "ground beef" & spicy "sausage" (I use Morningstar Farms, which tastes so much like the real thing that no one believes it is vegetarian and totally meat free!). This was really good, and I will definitely be making this again!

Potato Squash Cakes

Reviewed: Jan. 14, 2007
I found this recipe because I was trying to make potato corn cakes, and this was the closest I could find. This gave me some good ideas and a good base to start with. Instead of the squash I used corn, and instead of the garlic salt I used real garlic, which I think gave it more flavor. I really liked the outcome, and the dish was really good. I think this recipe is really versatile, and could handle other spices depending on what you are serving it with, and I will definitely make this again!

Zucchini Mediterranean Style

Reviewed: Feb. 3, 2007
I thought this was alright, but certainly not great. By itself it was way too bland. I even added a ton of extra garlic as well as crushed red pepper, but it was still bland. I served it with couscous as others suggested, and I don't think it worked well, because everything in the dish is a bit squishy, so the couscous becomes unnoticeable. I think rice would go much better--it's a bit more substantial. Unless chickpeas were substituted for the cannelini beans--then couscous might be ok with it. I served the leftovers the next day over brown rice (would also work well with whole grain macaroni) & topped off with some ground vegetarian "sausage" (Morningstar Farms brand--tastes just like the real thing!!).

Avocado, Tomato and Mango Salsa

Reviewed: Jun. 6, 2006
Wow, this was great! Everyone really enjoyed it. My only problem with it was that I didn't make enough--I should have at least doubled the recipe!!

Stephan's Broiled Salmon Pesto

Reviewed: Mar. 6, 2006
I made this tonight, and my husband was not impressed. He thought the flavor of the fish (from the wine and lemon) was great, but he did not like the pesto on it at all. On the plus side, I cooked the salmon perfectly, and once my husband scraped off the pesto, he was able to enjoy his meal more. We will not be making this again.

Almond-Crusted Halibut Crystal Symphony

Reviewed: Aug. 10, 2005
I served this with brown rice and roasted asparagus. It was a fantastic dinner--this is an amazing recipe!! I'm a vegetarian, so I didn't eat the fish, but the beurre blanc was out of this world! My husband couldn't get enough of the fish and the sauce...he said if we weren't already married, this dinner would have gotten me a marriage proposal!!

Classic Bran Muffins

Reviewed: Jan. 14, 2007
These are really good for bran muffins, and they were better than I expected them to be. I've made these a few times, but never completely following the recipe--I always omit the raisins, and make a different flavor. This is a great base recipe to use and then experiment with different flavor combinations! I have made banana cinnamon, blueberry, and cranberry orange muffins, all of which have been great!

Mexican Casserole

Reviewed: Jan. 14, 2007
This was just ok for me. I made a lot of changes, which gave it a lot of flavor, but I still just was not impressed. I definitely prefer traditional Mexican food, and this recipe just does not fit the bill. On the plus side, it was easy and fast to make, and my husband really liked it. But I don't think I will make it again.

Roquefort Pear Salad

Reviewed: Jan. 14, 2007
I thought this salad was really good! I added an extra clove of garlic, and doubled the pecans. And I used goat cheese in my salad, since I don't like blue cheese, but I kept the blue cheese in my husband's salad--he loved it the recipe too! We will definitely be making this again!

Smothered Filet Mignon

Reviewed: Mar. 6, 2006
I made this for my husband last night, and he really liked it. It had a very strong flavor that initially surprised him because he didn't expect it, but he really enjoyed it and wants me to make it again.

Macadamia Nut Crusted Mahi Mahi

Reviewed: Jan. 14, 2007
I've made this twice now, and each time it has really impressed! I first made it for my husband on our anniversary, and have made it again recently. I have served it with green beans or asparagus and potato corn cakes, as recommended. The sauce smells awesome while it's cooking!!

Mock Chicken

Reviewed: Mar. 15, 2006
I'm a vegetarian, and I use tofu in recipes all the time--thanks for this great idea! I really like the sort of firm chewiness the freezing gives the tofu. I have used this method ever since I stmbled upon this "recipe" about year ago, and now this is the only way I prepare my tofu!!

Best Brownies

Reviewed: Mar. 6, 2006
These were just ok, certainly not the best brownies ever. I have made them twice--the first time with the icing, which I did nt like. So I made them again, this time without the icing, and the brownies were just alright. I was very dissapointed.
