Hearty Halibut Chowder

Reviewed: Mar. 31, 2011
Great receipe. I used talapia and cod (that's what I had on hand). I added 2 cans of creamed corn (an awesome addition), and I used 1/2-n-1/2 instead of heavy cream and milk. In my opinion, this recipe does not need the cheese. I tasted the choweder before and after I added the cheese, and I actually think it's a little better without the cheese. Finally, I used cilantro as a garnish, and omigosh, it added a fantastic, wonderful flavor. Thanks for the recipe!

Parmesan Garlic Bread

Reviewed: Mar. 20, 2011
Two stars as written, four by the time I was done with it. I mixed the spices/parmesan cheese with room temperature butter (to make a spread). I took a taste after mixing it and and thought it tasted a whole lot like regular butter. Not nearly enough seasoning for me! I added a tablespoon of italian seasoning, a teaspoon of crushed dried rosemary, and a 1/4 cup of parmesan. Now we were on to something. I spread the mixture on fresh french bread, and baked it at 350 until it reached the desired crispness. It turned out more than great.

Spiced Beef Stew

Reviewed: Mar. 20, 2011
The butter/beer/beef broth/dried thyme make an incredible gravy which serves as the base to this recipe. I added diced new potatoes (left the skins on), fresh cracked black pepper, and sea salt along the way. I made this on the stove top instead of in the oven. The brown sugar adds a nice background sweetness. Awesome recipe.

Roast Beef with Caramelized Onions

Reviewed: Mar. 6, 2011
I marinaded the roast overnight in Oregon Herb Rub (from the 'Tri Tip with Oregon Herb Rub' receipe from Allrecipes). The rub is fantastic; I use it often. I liked the idea of roasting the meat over the onions, and the onions definitely compliment the taste of the meat on the plate. Next time, I'll use a tri tip or a cross rib roast (I used chuck roast, and it wasn't very tender). But, 4 stars to the cooking method in this recipe!

Orzo with Parmesan and Basil

Reviewed: Mar. 6, 2011
Wow, what a dish. I added sauteed mushrooms and used high quality dried basil (my fresh basil went bad in the fridge overnight). Fantastic. I will make this often in a variety of ways. Thanks for the recipe!

Roasted Herb Chicken and Potatoes

Reviewed: Feb. 23, 2011
Yummy. I added carrots to the potato/onion mixture. The dish ended up being pretty large, and needed to cook for a little more than 2 hours (I covered it with foil for the last 30 minutes), but it was worth waiting for. I'll definitely make this again.

Glazed Salmon

Reviewed: Feb. 21, 2011
What a quick and delicious meal. I used honey instead of molasses and doubled the garlic. I cooked the fish under the broiler instead of on the grill. (Baby, it's cold outside!) I'll definitely make this dish again.

White Chili I

Reviewed: Feb. 5, 2011
I used left-over cooked chicken meat from the freezer and put everything (except the wine and cheese) in the slow cooker for about 6 hours on high. I cut the veggies in pretty small pieces since I chose to use a Crockpot. This recipe required a lot of "knife work", but the dish turned out great. Oh, and I topped the bowls off with parmesan cheese instead of Monterey Jack...

Acorn Squash

Reviewed: Jan. 9, 2011
I followed another rater's advice and cooked the halved squash (flesh side up) in a roasting pan with a little water (uncovered - with the brown sugar/butter mixture inside the halved gems) for 60 minutes. I added salt and pepper to the butter/sugar mixture and basted the squash about every 20 minutes. I finished them under the broiler to carmelize the sugar. Nutritious, and delicious.

Creamed Peas and Potatoes

Reviewed: Jan. 9, 2011
I love it when I can taste a recipe in my mind's eye, prepare it, and it's exactly what I expected. This is exactly what I expected. I used baby new red potatoes and quartered them. I doubled the recipe, and used one bag regular frozen peas, and one bag frozen peas with pearl onions. I made sure to cook the flour well to remove that "flour-y" taste. Then, drats, I forgot the dill! Still, the dish was outstanding.

Pizza Casserole

Reviewed: Jan. 8, 2011
It didn't taste exactly like pizza to me, but it was yummy none-the-less. I was really surprised at how much my husband love it! I used an entire pound of ground beef, turkey pepperoni, and increased the pasta to 3 cups dry (I used whole wheat spiral pasta). When assembling the dish, I placed a layer of cheese in the middle of the mixture and topped the whole thing off with more cheese. Yes, I used more cheese and garlic than the receipe called for, but that's the great thing about being a cook - suiting your own taste. This dish is easy and delicious; give it a try.

Roasted Brussels Sprouts

Reviewed: Jan. 1, 2011
Roasting takes these babies to a whole new level. I followed the recipe exactly, and I'm glad I did because they are fantastic. Nutritious, delicious, and so easy to prepare. All I have to say is "Welcome to the family, tasty little sprout receipe!"

California Creamy Potatoes

Reviewed: Dec. 25, 2010
This is a yummy, comforting potato casserole. And, it was extremely quick and easy to make (I used a mandolin to the slice the potatoes). I rough chopped 12 large cloves of garlic (I'm addicted to the stuff), and used yellow cheddar. I added a little salt and pepper too. I covered the dish with tinfoil and baked it for 45 minutes, then uncovered it/baked it for another 15. This recipe is a keeper.

Peppered Rib Eye Roast

Reviewed: Dec. 25, 2010
I was disappointed/expected a lot more out of this dish. The marinade did not penetrate the meat (I followed the directions exactly). I won't make this again.

Mexican Casserole

Reviewed: Dec. 20, 2010
An average casserole... the first night (when the casserole was fresh), it tasted pretty good. But, the leftovers were only fair (soggy chips and kinda falling apart). I doubt the portion I stuck in the freezer will be that good. Leftovers are really important to me, and I want them to taste good. I need them to help carry me through the work week! Probably won't make this again.
