Butternut Squash Soup

Reviewed: Nov. 10, 2012
This recipe is amazing. I've made it many times and EVERYONE asks for the recipe. I roast the squash face-down in a 350 degree oven until it's soft enough to be poked with a fork. Then I let it cook and peel. It's much easier this way and the flavor is more intense! I also add a few chopped cloves of garlic when sautéing the onions, double all the spices, and use only 1 package cream cheese. This is a winner every time!

Crunchy Romaine Toss

Reviewed: Nov. 10, 2012
I make this salad once a week, and it's a hit with all my guests! I substitute balsamic vinegar for the red wine vinegar, and have found that 1/2 cup oil, 1/2 cup sugar, 1/4 cup balsamic vinegar, and 2 tsp soy sauce is enough for this 8-serving salad. Any more and the lettuce would be dripping! The dressing IS important for softening up the broccoli, however, so I let it sit for 15-20 minutes before serving. Toss the crunchy noodles and walnuts in right before serving so the noodles don't get too soggy. Like other reviewers, I had no problem cutting the butter down to 1-2 tbsp when frying the noodles (which should DEFINITELY be broken into tiny crumbles), and toasting the walnuts in the oven. I've also thrown the walnuts in raw and I've never had a complaint.

Tasty Lentil Tacos

Reviewed: Jul. 25, 2010
This recipe is amazing. The only change I made was to use beef broth instead of chicken, for obvious reasons. The texture of the lentils is similar to ground beef and the flavor is even better. My family tends to cringe at the idea of vegetarian meals, but I don't think we'll ever make tacos with ground beef again!

Rich and Creamy Tomato Basil Soup

Reviewed: Jul. 14, 2009
This is one of the best recipes I have ever stumbled across. I make it about once every two weeks and never have left overs! I always saute garlic and onion before adding the tomatoes. Also, I never bother to skin or seed the tomatoes, why bother!, and it always turns out absolutely delicious! Thanks for an amazing recipe. A real crowd pleaser!

Fresh Southern Peach Cobbler

Reviewed: Jul. 14, 2009
This is a smash hit. I always follow the directions exactly and very time I make it my husband cannot eat it fast enough. I served it at a Fourth of July BBQ and it was quickly gone. Everyone wanted the recipe. I will definitely make again.

Salmon and Shrimp Cakes from Chef Bubba

Reviewed: Jul. 14, 2009
These cakes turned out very dry and had little flavor, even though I followed the recipe to a T. Will probably not try again, although if I do, I will be sure to also prepare a sauce to present with them.
