Hurry-Up Ham Carbonara

Reviewed: Apr. 18, 2012
This recipe was unbelievably DELICIOUS. My 5 and 3 year old even raved over it. As advertised, it will be making regular appearances at my table now. I was unsure about the use of egg yolk in this recipe and was tempted to try other recipes to avoid it. Let me assure you - do it. I brought the liquid to a simmer, took the skillet off the fire and stirred vigorously when I added the yolks to ensure they wouldn't scramble. Additions/Substitutions: -I sauteed sliced brown mushrooms and garlic with the onion. The mushrooms really made the dish. -I added rinsed/thawed frozen green peas with the ham. -I substituted grated Parmesano/Romano for the regular Parmesan.

Italian Summer Squash Polenta Bake

Reviewed: Aug. 26, 2009
Being a good Southern girl, I just used yesterday's grits that were cooled and solidified instead of expensive "polenta". I pressed them into the dish and skipped the frying. Make sure you cook your grits extra thick! Made this another time with leftover cheese grits-DELICIOUS!

Bombay Chicken and Rice

Reviewed: Aug. 26, 2009
Unbelievably easy to make! Great recipe- few ingreds, very little effort, great flavor. This will become a new staple at my house! Prep time is really more like 5 mins and waiting on the oven to heat. I used a trail mix with banana chips and nuts I had around. Didn't bother removing the nuts, and it turned out to be an excellent addition. I salt and peppered the chicken before brushing heavily with the butter mixture. Chicken needs a heavy coating of the butter/spice mixture, make extra if needed.

Shrimp Brochette

Reviewed: May 11, 2009
Delicious! I found that it was easier to wrap the shrimp using raw bacon. To be sure the bacon cooked nicely I alternately raised and lowered the lid on my propane grill to maintain a small flame. I used a small sliver of cheese inside, then topped the shrimp with a little more at the end.
