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!

Venison Pot Roast

Reviewed: Oct. 27, 2009
My family said this was the best pot roast they have ever eaten. I had a venison roast on hand and had all the ingredients in the pantry and refrigerator. I followed the recipe and cooked the roast a little longer before adding the vegetables which made it even more tender. Will make this again.

Pollo Mediterranean

Reviewed: Oct. 27, 2009
OMG this was wonderful! The sauce was full of flavor. I used capers instead of olives. After the sauce thickened I returned the chicken and cooked on low until the guests arrived. (Almost 45 min. longer) The chicken was even more tender. Stir often though so the sauce doesn't stick. I added this to angel hair pasta. Garlic bread and salad as sides. Thank you for such a flavorful recipe.

Quick Savory Cranberry Glazed Pork Loin Roast

Reviewed: Nov. 6, 2009
Oh! Yes! This is a keeper. I did not change anything with the ingredients and it turned out perfect, moist, and tender. The store only had a 2 1/2 lb. roast so I did half the recipe. Thank you.

Slow Cooker Carnitas

Reviewed: Nov. 25, 2009
Without a doubt, this recipe will go into my recipe box. As good as some of the restaurants I have had pulled pork in (even better) After cooking, I pulled the pork apart with two forks. Made some white rice and substituted one of the cups of water with the juices from the roast to add flavor. Heated black beans from a can to pour over the rice, and fried bananas in a little butter. OMG! The pork fell apart. Don't change anything in this recipe. Thank You!

Pumpkin Butter

Reviewed: Dec. 16, 2009
OMG! What a great recipe! I had no idea pumpkin butter was so easy to make. This was so good that I bought small canning jars, filled them with the pumpkin butter, tied a pretty bow around them and passed them out as gifts. (follow the directions for canning with the glass jars) Great on toast, English muffins, scones, bagels, etc. I did not change the recipe at all. Thank you

World's Best Scones! From Scotland to the Savoy to the U.S.

Reviewed: Apr. 1, 2010
This scone recipe is a keeper. I am baking some in the oven as I rate this recipe. I have made them once before using orange flavored cranberries. This time I am using regular cranberries and 1 tbls. lemon zest. Can't wait to try them. They vanished the first time around. Very light scone almost like a biscuit. Don't need butter or jam great flavor and wonderful warm from the oven.

Greek Lemon Chicken Soup

Reviewed: Oct. 22, 2009
I cut this recipe in half and only made a few changes. I used butter instead of margarine, orzo instead of rice, and turkey instead of chicken. May not be necessary but, I sauted the onion and celery to get rid of the crunch before adding to the soup base. Absolutely loved this recipe. The blending of flavors is perfect. This will be added to my recipe box as a favorite. Thank You!

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.

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.

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!

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!

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.

Slow Cooker Pheasant with Mushrooms and Olives

Reviewed: Jun. 3, 2011
I was so impressed with this recipe. First time cooking Pheasant. Could not find crimini mushrooms instead I found a package of assorted gourmet mushrooms to substitute. Other then this I followed the recipe as written. After cooking in the slow cooker at the required time the meat fell off the bones. This bird has many tiny bones so be careful when pulling the meat off the Pheasant. Can't wait to cook this again. Roasted potatoes with the sauce and a salad make a nice meal. Have some French bread for dipping any extra sauce.

Cheesy Chicken Meatballs

Reviewed: Jun. 5, 2011
I fixed these for dinner today. Used turkey instead of chicken, chives & onion cream cheese (could not find roasted garlic) besides garlic powder is used in the recipe, one egg, olive oil instead of vegetable oil, and omitted the crushed red pepper flakes. They were perfect to form into balls. I cooked them as directed and added them into my spaghetti sauce. Moist and yummy. Can't wait to make them again and will double the recipe.

Reviewed: Jun. 5, 2011
This salad was yummy and I will be fixing it often. Took the easy way out and used moist sun dried tomatoes found in a package ( 2 hr cooking time is too long for me) Used baby greens instead of arugula. The dressing was perfect and can be made ahead of time Everyone loved it!! Thank you for the recipe!
