Mexican Wedding Cookies

Reviewed: Jan. 3, 2012
So easy, and great tasting. I love to make these for the holidays. I used a small cookie scoop to make them ball shaped and called them snowballs. I used walnuts because I had them on hand - they came out great. I think either nut would work fine.

Roasted Brussels Sprouts

Reviewed: Oct. 25, 2009
I will never boil another brussel sprout! Roasting is the only way to go. The first time I made them I had that moment of panic as the smoke started, and I was scared I was burning them to death! But be brave and let them roast away! The black ones are definitely the best. I've tried this method now with other vegetables - asparagus and leeks also come out great. Thank you for passing on such a simple but satisfying recipe!

Authentic Chinese Egg Rolls (from a Chinese person)

Reviewed: Sep. 10, 2009
These were great! I used a bag of shredded cabbage & carrots for coleslaw - a great shortcut. I also added some chopped shrimp during the saute process, and after I added the egg I also added fresh bean sprouts. They tasted just like the restaurant! One caution - I rolled these and stacked on a plate and then turned my attention to my entree, and when I was ready to fry the eggrolls found that the dough of the wrappers had all stuck together. Ripped several of them trying to get them apart. Next time I will roll and place on a single layer on a baking sheet until I am ready to go! Also, I froze the leftovers (after frying) and they heat up just terrific in a low oven.

Green Pepper Pork Chops

Reviewed: Sep. 10, 2009
Fantastic! I added a pack of Lipton Onion Soup, and I didn't have the browning sauce. Turned out really tender and delicious. I worried that the peppers would turn to mush, but they were great - not mushy at all! Green peppers and pork really work well together, and I grew my own this year, and am tired of stuffed peppers. This was a great way to use up a few of them! Oh, you have to serve this with mashies to use the wonderful gravy!

Old Fashioned Onion Rings

Reviewed: Aug. 16, 2009
Fantastic! I made both onion rings and fried zucchini with this recipe. We really loved these. I used the tip from another reviewer and used plastic bags to do the coatings. I used Italian Seasoned bread crumbs. As I fried, I put them onto a rack in a 225 oven to drain and keep warm as I continued the batch. Came out just awesome! I used the sauce recipe from "Blooming Onion and Dipping Sauce" on this site. Delish!

I used the sauce with deep fried zucchini and it is just fabulous! Tastes even better than the restaurant sauce.

Greek Style Potatoes

Reviewed: Aug. 5, 2009
These are just awesome! I didn't have lemon juice though, but used the bouillon, oil & seasonings. I used red potatoes cut in wedges, and didn't peel them. Baked an hour covered, and about 20 minutes uncovered. TIP: I didn't stir or turn the potatoes at all. They were crispy brown on the bottom, and puffy on top - really, really good!

Spaghetti Carbonara II

Reviewed: May 4, 2009
Rich and delicious! I added some half and half to make it a little saucier, and added peas and mushrooms to make it more of a complete dinner for us. It was just decadent!

Microwave Lemon Curd

Reviewed: Mar. 23, 2009
This was so easy and delicious! I've never attempted to make curd, and I'm glad I found such a simple recipe. I served this with Blueberry Lemon Bread by Jessica from this site and it was delicious.

Blueberry Lemon Bread

Reviewed: Mar. 23, 2009
Very good lemon loaf! Mine turned out very dense, more like a pound cake. The lemon taste was excellent, and the blueberries were evenly distributed. I served it with Microwave Lemon Curd from this site.

Sour Cream Chicken Enchiladas

Reviewed: Mar. 14, 2009
These are simply fantastic! Very easy to prepare - I used shredded cooked chicken I had leftover. I couldn't find jalapeno salsa, so I used green chile enchilada sauce (Carlita's) and the green chile salsa (Ortega). They looked great on the plate (like restaurant food) and tasted fabulous! We both ate way too much! Thanks for a great have-again.

Lemon Cream Pasta with Chicken

Reviewed: Mar. 14, 2009
This is fabulous! I used shredded, cooked chicken that I had leftover. I also added sauteed mushrooms and asparagus tips. With the bright lemon flavor it tasted just like Spring! We will have this one again.

Lemon Mushroom Herb Chicken

Reviewed: Mar. 9, 2009
I liked this, but my lemon must have been huge, as it was way too tart (and I love lemon). I added a little sugar to the sauce and that helped. The chicken itself was very tender. I made it as directed, dredged in the herbs and flour. I don't think you'd want to do an egg-wash bound breading with this recipe, as some have suggested, since it would get too soggy. Also, the sauce needs the flour from the sauteed chicken to thicken. BF said it was "restaurant food" and a "definite have again" but I will measure the lemon next time and just not squeeze a whole one into the mix.

Pork Tenderloin with Dijon Marsala Sauce

Reviewed: Feb. 8, 2009
Really liked the sauce. I made this with two thick boneless pork chops, then sliced them and spooned the sauce over. Would have again - thank you!

Souvlaki

Reviewed: Feb. 8, 2009
Used two thick boneless pork chops and my bf kept asking if it was tenderloin! The marinade really made the pork tender. Served with Tzaziki and warm pita and boxed Couscous. Will have again. Thanks!
