Newport Clam Chowder

Reviewed: Dec. 9, 2009
When I make clam chowder, it is a REAL treat. I usually use heavy whipping cream instead of the half n half. It gives it a really creamy texture, and more of that whiter color, not yellowish. BUT since I am cutting back on calories, and fat, I used the half and half and it tasted very good. I did use some bacon for extra flavor and some chicken stock. It was really good. Dont forgte the dill. I had dried and it adds such a unique flavor.It made a lot for me and my boyfriend. Thanks for the recipe.

Espresso Bark

Reviewed: Dec. 9, 2009
This has WAY too much coffe in it. I am a coffee freak and love it so much I thought this is for me. Not unless you want a mouth full of coffee grounds. If that sounds good to you. Enjoy. It is a nice idea, but not done right in my book. Maybe try a a Tbs of instant coffee crystals mixed in and sprinkle a couple TBs of crushed coffee beans over the whole batch. Looks pretty, but you cant eat it. I was sad. :(

Cherry Rum Balls

Reviewed: Dec. 9, 2009
I really wanted to love these with all the great reviews. I followed exactly, and they looked gorgious. I think they are very dry though.. Even after letting sit to "ripen" for a few days. I will be UPing the amount of liquid in this. I even used a couple TB of cherry juice with the rum. They sure do look just like the pics though. They tase good, but just too dry for me. I wont even be sharing these because I dont think they are moist enough to have my name on them.Very pretty cookie on a posotive note.

Italian Wedding Soup I

Reviewed: Dec. 9, 2009
This was my very first attempt to make this soup. Just a hint, my local store did not have escarole, so I used Kale(Same thing?). I also chopped it small instead of having strips of slimy green floatys. Much better that way.I am confused why people cooked the meatballs seperate. It is not like they were greasy..I used LEAN ground beef(recipe calls for xtra lean) and I put one medium sized chicken breast in the food processor to make my own ground chicken.I mixed them together and made small meatballs. Thats what they are suppose to be... small.The amout of pasta in this is WAY too much. you will end up with hardly any broth. Me and my boyfriend were fighting over it. LOL!Use half the pasta as others have stated. I was surprised how flavorfull it was with no onions and celery. I think it is even better the next day. Enjoy. I will make it again for sure!

Polynesian Coleslaw

Reviewed: Nov. 13, 2009
So in my search for satisfying "diet" food, I wanted new salads to eat. This is soooo flavorfull and yummy, I actually crave it every week. I would reccomend OMITTING the salt. It is plenty salty enough using the soy sauce. I would also recommend slicing (very thin) your cabbage rather then buying the pre bagged stuff. It adds more flavor and juiciness. I also add my dressing right to my bowl of salad right before I eat it.I am going to start using Braggs liquid amino acids. It has 1/3 of the sodium then soy sauce and is actually good for you and tasts the same. Look for it in the health food section by the cider vinager.PLEASE, PLEASE make this. You wont be sorry! I make it at least 2 times a week, and I am not sick of it yet! Also, add the cilantro righ to the dressing, otherwise it stick to the sides of the bowl instead of being"IN" the salad. Enjoy friends. I know you will love it.
