Chicken and Gnocchi Soup

Reviewed: Nov. 11, 2011
So so good!! I didn't use starch and used fat free half and half. I like soup nice and chunky and I added more celery, carrots and onions than called for, and probably chicken too though I didn't weigh it. This was the absolute perfect meal for a cold rainy windy day like today. Loved it!

Scott's Savory BBQ Sauce

Reviewed: Jan. 22, 2011
Very good BBQ sauce. I halved the recipe and then ended up adding a little more ketchup and Worcestershire sauce just because I thought the vinegar was a big much, but overall we really liked it.

Skillet Corn Bread

Reviewed: Nov. 1, 2010
This was super easy to make and tastes good too. It definitely wasn't as sweet as normal corn bread, but we had it with chili and it complimented it very well. Also, just adding a bit of honey on top makes it perfectly sweet enough. Definitely a go to recipe if you're in a hurry and don't feel like making a whole big batch of corn bread.

Zucchini Bread IV

Reviewed: Nov. 1, 2010
AWESOME! This bread is delicious. I used just 1 egg and 2 egg whites, substituted 1/2 c. of apple sauce for 1/2 c. of vegetable oil, and used mostly whole wheat flour and the bread was STILL fantastic! I could not tell that I made any "healthy" subs at all, and that's a first for me. Next time I'm going to try all apple sauce.

Pumpkin Apple Streusel Muffins

Reviewed: Oct. 8, 2010
This recipe was very tasty. I followed some of the recommendations and substituted 1/2 whole wheat flour and 1/2 brown sugar where it called for flour and sugar. I also used almond oil instead of vegetable oil. I forgot to peel the apples, but I think they turned out just as well. I will double the streusel recipe next time as it didn't cover all of the muffins, but the ones with no topping were still tasty too just not AS tasty. :-)

Lobster Bisque

Reviewed: Dec. 19, 2009
This bisque is AWESOME!! I've always loved lobster bisque and now that my husband catches lobster a lot, I decided to try out some lobster recipes myself. I used a lot of the advice that others gave and I'm so glad that I did. I used 1 shallot rather than regular onion. To replace the milk, I used 1 cup half and half, 1/2 cup heavy cream, 1/2 cup skim milk (the only milk I had in the house). I increased the amount of Worcestershire sauce to 1 tablespoon and cayenne pepper to 1/2 teaspoon. I also added 3 tablespoons of tomato puree and about 1/2 cup parsley near the end. I didn't want to overcook the lobster so I let the sauce simmer for about 30 minutes, then added the nearly fully cooked lobster (which I sauteed with butter, shallots and garlic) to the sauce to simmer for another 30 minutes. SO TASTY! If you prefer a mild taste, reduce the cayenne pepper. 1/2 teaspoon gives a nice kick which I loved.

Garlic-Tarragon Cream Sauce

Reviewed: Dec. 19, 2009
This was a tasty cream sauce. Very heavy but definitely tasty! I was concerned with the tarragon reviews so I just omitted that, and the over all flavor was very good. I used butter instead of margarine and used one large shallot instead of the onion.

Lobster Pasta

Reviewed: Oct. 20, 2009
This was really tasty. I followed the recommended advice and added Marsala wine and mushrooms to this recipe. The Marsala really added a great flavor. I might have to try Sherry next time, but the Marsala was so good it would be a tough choice. I also added extra garlic and very little cinnamon. I put two shakes of the canister of cinnamon, probably less than 1/2 teaspoon. You could just barely taste it, but I think it may have added a little something special. I also used 1/2 and 1/2 instead of heavy cream to lessen the fat content a bit. I used 2 cans of 14.5 oz. stewed tomatoes, chopped up, plus I added just a bit of marinara sauce as well. We caught the lobsters fresh but I had frozen them before I made this meal. Two large tails, partially thawed only took about 4 minutes to turn bright orange in the boiling water. They cooked the rest of the way in the skillet after I cut the tails in half lengthwise. I cooked the tails like that but then ended up cutting them into chunks for the final product. My husband loved it, and he's very picky. I will definitely be using this recipe again.

Cinnamon Rolls I

Reviewed: Aug. 29, 2009
This recipe was really tasty. My husband loves cinnamon rolls, so I decided to give them a try for his birthday. It's the first time I've ever made them, so I was a little timid to change the recipe as some recommended, but everything worked out really well. I added just under 1/4 c. crisco to the dough as suggested. The bread is so soft! I also used the suggested cream cheese frosting. My husband requested chocolate chips, so I added some minis and it was delicious! Next time I'll increase the brown sugar as I think I'd prefer it a little gooier, but overall it was delicious!
