Crab and Swiss Quiche

Reviewed: Jan. 1, 2015
I made this a year ago and found it a bit bland. I embellished the recipe today to rave reviews all around the table. Instead of 1-1/2 cups swiss cheese, I used 1 cup shredded swiss cheese, and 1/2 cup shaved parmesan cheese. I added green onion, a splash of Worcestershire sauce, and some fresh ground pepper. Finally, I used a single can of real crab meat and approximately 15 medium size cooked, deveined shrimp (tail off). I cooked it at 350 degrees, but found that 40 minutes was not long enough. An extra 15 minutes gave a perfect result.

Caramel French Toast

Reviewed: Jan. 1, 2015
I followed the recipe a week ago to test it before serving it to friends. We liked it, but it needed a few small changes for New Years Day brunch. The first time round there wasn't enough wet ingredients for the top layer of bread, which ended up dry and crunchy. For my guests I added two additional eggs, sprinkled a little nutmeg between the layers of bread, and some on top too. Most importantly, I dipped the bread in the egg mixture before adding it to the casserole dish, to be sure the top layer was not dried out. It came out perfect - moist, tasty, and beautiful. Our guests raved about the food, and everyone went for seconds - the most sincere food compliment I know.

Apple Cider Sauce and Pork Loin Chops

Reviewed: Dec. 4, 2013
Very tasty pork dish. I wish I had followed the advice of other reviewers, and reduced the cooking time. Even though it was a little dry, it got rave reviews around the table, and has already been requested again. Only issue I had is that the sauce didn't thicken after about 15 minutes of active boiling. None the less, delicious!

The salad is good, but not stellar. Probably won't make it again.

Cheesy Zucchini Bites

Reviewed: Oct. 31, 2008
If you really like bleu cheese, these are probably great. I don't care for a really strong bleu cheese flavor and did not particularly like these. My guests thought they were pretty to look at but nobody complimented the taste. Nobody went for seconds. I might try these again with a more subtle cheese filling.

Mushroom and Bacon Triangles

Reviewed: Oct. 31, 2008
I made this appy for my reading group and eveyone raved about it. I used phyllo rather than puff pastry, brushing on a little melted butter to seal the ends. I will definitely make this appetizer again.

Cucumber and Avocado Sushi

Reviewed: Sep. 10, 2008
I really did not care for the rice vinegar. I actually made this recipe twice, the second time minus the rice vinegar. I also added cooked shrimp to the sushi. It was pretty good the second time around.

G's Flank Steak Marinade

Reviewed: Sep. 10, 2008
If I could, I would rate this 6 stars! This is the best steak I have ever served or eaten. Everyone of my skinny, health-conscious, athletic friends (who are normally suspicious of red meat) asked for seconds. I prepared the marinade as described and set the meat in it for 24 hours. We grilled the steaks to the liking of each of our guests and sat back to enjoy the praise they lavished on the meal.

Kabobs

Reviewed: Sep. 10, 2008
I made vegetarian kabobs, subtracting the meat and adding cherry tomatoes and zucchini slices. I used the sauce as described in the recipe, marinated overnight, and enjoyed my guest's lavish praise. I will make this one again soon.

Baked Delicata Squash with Lime Butter

Reviewed: Sep. 10, 2008
I tried this recipe for a fall dinner party because it was rated 5 stars. The meal was a raging success but the squash was disappointing.
