Chicken Scallopini

Reviewed: Feb. 2, 2011
Fixed this tonight and loved it!! Could not find chicken flavored demi-glace so substituted this for chicken broth. Wonderful! Sliced green olives would be good in place of the capers. I will try this next time. My favorite Italian restaurant serves a similar dish they call Chicken picata. I served this over a small portion of spaghetti. Two large chicken breast sliced as stated and pounded is enough for four servings if you are a light eater.

Cajun Potato Soup

Reviewed: Jan. 30, 2011
I used Turkey Polska Kielbasa. Used half & half instead of heavy cream because that is what I had. Added ground cayenne pepper to give this recipe a little heat. Amazing recipe and Oh! so good. I like a thicker soup so I used a small amount of corn starch with some of the hot soup that was added back to the pot to thicken. Prepared this tonight and will have it for dinner tomorrow. Can't wait!! Thank you! A keeper!

Venison Bacon Burgers

Reviewed: Dec. 14, 2008
This was my first time ever cooking any kind of Venison. After reading the reviews I thought I would give this recipe a try. I was so impressed with the taste, flavor, ingredience used, texture, etc. This is a winner and I will prepare this over and over again. I followed the recipe and didn't change anything.

Cold Asparagus with Prosciutto and Lemon

Reviewed: Apr. 13, 2010
I wasn't sure about the cold asparagus but, I will have to say that this recipe is wonderful. I fixed this dish without any changes as a side dish for Easter dinner and everyone loved it. So easy and so good. Thank you for the recipe. A nice do ahead dish with no last minute fussing around.

Tropical Sweet Potato Fries

Reviewed: Jan. 16, 2011
I did not have cilantro. Other then not adding this ingredient I followed the recipe as written. The sweet potato's were not boiled long enough (should have cooked longer) Baked for 20 min. as stated and they were still not fully cooked and started to have a burnt look, turned them several times!! The seasoning mixture has a unique flavor especially with the grated lime. Too much salt though! I might try this again and boil the potato's until fork tender and cut back on some of the ingredients. Will not give up! This recipe sounds good and I love sweet potato fries.

Coriander Tabbouleh Salad with Shrimp

Reviewed: May 28, 2009
I could not wait to write a review for this tabbouleh salad. This is the first time I have even tried to make this salad. I followed the receipe only adding a little more lemon juice to my taste. Instead of shrimp I cooked salmon on the grill and layed it on top of the tabbouleh. Warm French bread and you have a fantastic meal. Wow! Sensational! The combination of flavors is outstanding. This is a keeper and I can't wait for my friends to try it. THANK YOU!!!

Orange-Scented Grilled Lobster Tails

Reviewed: Aug. 18, 2012
I catch my own lobster (Florida Spiney) I found this recipes and thought I would give it a try. Always looking for something new. I followed the recippe and it was OK. My lobster shell burnt so, next time I will bring the fire to a lower setting. I will try this again and will cut and split the top of the shell and the last ten minutes have this side up ( shell side up) and add the butter sauce to the lobster meat.

Italian Spinach Salad

Reviewed: Jan. 26, 2011
If you haven't tried this recipe you are missing out. Fixed it tonight with salmon. Yummy! I did make a few changes. I do not like onions so they were omitted. I used turkey bacon to cut down on the calories. The warm Italian dressing (ken's Zesty Italian) poured on at the last minute with a sprinkle of Parmesan Cheese was a hit. Can't wait to make this again.

Balsamic Vinegar and Ginger Bok Choy

Reviewed: Oct. 22, 2010
I will buy Bok Choy more often. Did not change this recipe at all. I only used one head so decreased the ingredients. Yummy!

Roasted Lemon Herb Chicken

Reviewed: Apr. 13, 2013
I followed this recipe as written. The cooking time was off for me. My chicken was a little over 3 lbs but, even at that I cooked this chicken for 2 hrs. 10 min. and the thigh area was a little pink. I kept checking at this point until the juices ran clear and there was no sign of pink meat. After letting the chicken sit for awhile I could not believe how tender and juicy it was when I was carving. I pulled the skin up and rubbed in the seasonings along the breast before cooking. The smell in my kitchen during the cooking time was amazing. Can't wait to try this recipe again.

Carrot Cheesecake Muffins

Reviewed: Apr. 26, 2012
Can't wait to make these again. Perfect muffins to add to the bread basket for Easter dinner. Love the cheese filling. Do put in the fridge for storing and reheat in the microwave. Great snack with a warm cup of java. Just as good the second time around. Thanks for the recipe!

Bachelor's Creamy Pumpkin Soup

Reviewed: Dec. 22, 2010
I cooked my pumpkin from Halloween ( cut up with a little water in a baking pan covered with tin foil and baked) Scooped out the cooked pumpkin and pureed in a blender with a little chicken broth. Then I followed the recipe. Used the same spices but, did add more of each for the taste. I thought it had a bisque like flavor and texture so I added stone crab which I had the night before. Picked out the fresh crab meat from the cracked crab claw's Oh! My! was this wonderful. I put some in the freezer and hope it freezes well. Nice meal with a loaf of warm crusty buttered bread.

Walnut Raisin Scones

Reviewed: Jan. 13, 2010
I followed the ingredients as written but replaced raisins with cranberries and pecans for the walnuts. These were just o.k. and I think I might try again. Maybe add a little more sugar and take them out in 15 min. I left them in a little longer and they were harder then I wanted. Heated with jam they were better.

Mini Meatloaves

Reviewed: Jan. 14, 2011
I made these mini meatloaves tonight. Results: I will make them again, this time add some seasoning, a little bland for my taste. I had ground venison which is very lean and the meatloaf just melted in our mouth. I used muffin tins and they turned out to be the perfect portion. Mashed potatoes and green beans completed the meal. I would not want to alter this recipe too much, it is good as is. Thank you! Can't wait to make these again. A plate of these would be great for a pot luck.

Shrimp Etouffee II

Reviewed: Feb. 24, 2009
I was very excited to try this recipe since shrimp is one of my favorite foods. I didn't do much to change this recipe. The sauce was a bit too thick for me so I added chicken broth until I got the right consistency. I added a little more hot sauce & cayenne pepper to my taste. I cooked the sauce on the stove top instead of the microwave and sauteed the shrimp separate in a skillet then added to the sauce last minute so not to overcook the shrimp. I arranged the sauce on top of angel hair pasta. This would be a good company meal and I will fix it again. Thank you

Fish Tacos

Reviewed: Feb. 4, 2009
I lived in San Diego for 17 yrs. and fish tacos were found everywhere. Living in Florida now and they arn't as popular here. Most of my family in Florida had never heard of fish tacos. I will have to say that this recipe is the best. The sauce is something to die for. I did cut back on the jalapeno and cayenne pepper (to my taste). I added salt & pepper to the flour before dusting the fish. I didn't change the fish batter at all. Loved it. I used flour tortillas and heated them in a salted hot skillet (no oil). I would put these up against any fish taco in San Diego as being one of the best recipes I have tried. Didn't use cod. I caught and cleaned the fish myself which made the recipe more special. Thank you for the recipe. It will be used often.

Roasted Brussels Sprouts

Reviewed: Feb. 7, 2012
I thought the amount of salt was too much. The first time I reduced it to 1/2 and decided they needed more salt so the second time I prepared the sprouts I used 1 tsp. as recommended. I did add Balsalmic Vinegar for extra taste. I also cut the core out so they would not have a bitter taste and cut them in half. I will always prepare and eat Brussel Sprouts this way. Thank you for the recipe.

Hasenpfeffer (Rabbit Stew)

Reviewed: Sep. 20, 2011
First time I have prepared rabbit I did make a few changes but, other then that I followed the recipe to the tee. Did not have shallots so used onion, did not have chicken bouillon so used beef granuals, did not have currant jelly so used grape. Used corn starch instead of flour to thicken the gravy. Since I made changes I rated this a 4 but, should be a 5 because it turned out wonderful!! The gravy is something to die for and I put some aside to use on other recipes. Will be making this again!!

Baked Dijon Salmon

Reviewed: Jan. 26, 2011
OMG!! I love Salmon and I usually grill it. This was moist and the best Salmon I have ever fixed and it was done in the oven. I did make a few changes. I used Panco Japanese Bread Crumbs. Makes for a crunchy crust and can be found in most supermarkets. I had macadamia nuts already chopped so added pecans to make the amount called for. Absolutely delicious!! Can't wait to make this again! Thank you for the recipe!
