Penne and Vodka Sauce

Reviewed: Jan. 21, 2014
I really like the basis of this recipe, but I made a few additions. I sautéed finally minced onion in a combo of olive oil and butter. I also added fresh basil and hot pepper flakes. This recipe is a great starting point to add the flavors that you like. Also, I have made both with and without the pancetta. It's delicious both ways.

Restaurant Style Beef and Broccoli

Reviewed: Dec. 18, 2012
I made this for dinner tonight and loved it. I only made a few modifications I didn't have fresh ginger so I used ground and I didn't have sherry so I used a sweet white wine and rice wine vinegar. I also used a sirloin cut of beef. Also I sauteed onions with the garlic and left them in and added a little white pepper and salt to the broccoli. Other than that I kept everything the same. I served it with white rice. It was yummy the sauce was thick not too salty or too sweet or fishy, even my picky kids liked it.

Buttermilk Coleslaw

Reviewed: Mar. 28, 2012
I made this with a few changes. I used only 1 C of mayo and I added about 1/4 C of white vinegar omitted the celery seed - a personal preference as I don't care for it and I added salt to taste. If I had had white pepper I would have used that instead of the black. I really liked it, I never thought of using buttermilk in coleslaw and it really gave it a delicious taste. I also think the longer this sits the better it will taste. Thanks for this easy yummy recipe.

Maple Walnut Pumpkin Pie

Reviewed: Nov. 26, 2011
I made this pie and was very good. I did however make a few changes I used a regular pie crust and I did not have walnuts so I used candied pecans which I had from Trader Joe's. I also only had whole wheat flour. The topping came out really good. Overall a nice change from a traditional pumpkin pie.

Delicious Baked Chicken

Reviewed: Jan. 26, 2010
I followed the exact recipe and just did not like it. No one in my family did. I think the amount of worcestershire was too much and gave the chicken an odd artificial taste. On a positive note the chicken was moist and tender.

I have made this recipe several times for various get togethers. Everyone LOVES it and they always ask me for the recipe. I did not change a thing, it's perfect as it is.
