Asparagus Wrapped in Crisp Prosciutto

Reviewed: Jun. 2, 2009
These were super yummy. I tossed the aparagus in the evoo and garlic powder then I wrapped 4-5 spears in each slice of prosciutto, as "serving buddles". Mostly, because I didn't have enough to do each spear and was making as a side rather than an appetizer, but it worked really well. Still had a very nice flavor without getting too salty. New favorite asparagus recipe! Thanks

Spicy Grilled Shrimp

Reviewed: Jun. 9, 2009
Really enjoyed this. Something different to do with shrimp. I'll be doing this again. I let them marinate for about 15 minutes and made no other changes. Very good!

Bodacious Broccoli Salad

Reviewed: Aug. 12, 2009
Found this a month or so ago and have already made it 3 or 4 times. My 14 yr old daughter asks for it!!! I don't change anything in it, think it's great the way it is.

Red Skinned Potato Salad

Reviewed: Aug. 17, 2009
I thought it was good but not wonderful. I used half mayo/half sour cream and thought there was too much dressing for my taste. I did like the bacon and red onion. I think I'll try again with less dressing.

Cucumber and Tomato Salad

Reviewed: Aug. 17, 2009
This was very good. Very refreshing and just tastes like summer with home grown veggies and basil. I used the feta and red onion and a red wine vinegar dressing. Am anxious to try the Absolutely Fabulous Greek House dressing on it. I think that will be fabulous!

Simple Garlic and Basil Pesto

Reviewed: Aug. 17, 2009
Very good pesto. I did cut the olive oil by 1/4 and just used pine nuts. Made 3 batches to share and freeze. Will enjoy this winter when my basil is all gone! Thanks

Cajun Chicken

Reviewed: Aug. 19, 2009
Wow! This was very flavorful and juicy. I used the olive oil and used less of it by 1/3 but kept the spices the same. Still had plenty of volume for immersing the chicken. This will be made often at my house. Thanks so much for an alternative to the same old Italian dressing marinaded chicken.

Jalapeno Popper Spread

Reviewed: Sep. 10, 2009
Will be doing this over and over. Great party dip. Everyone raved!. I baked it rather than microwave and put the breadcrumbs and parmesan on top and some shredded cheddar inside. Used tortilla chips too!

Super-Delicious Zuppa Toscana

Reviewed: Oct. 13, 2009
This was WONDERFUL. I tweaked it just a tiny bit. Instead of the 4 slices of bacon I used a couple tablespoons of the pre cooked bacon pieces and threw them into the sausage when it was nearly browned. Got the flavor without the fat. And instead of the cream I used a can of low fat evaporated milk mixed with a couple tablespoons of cornstarch. That gives you a little more feel of the cream without the fat also. And I used kale instead of spinach. Loved it! and so did hubby. I'll be begged to make this again and again.

My Amish Friend's Caramel Corn

Reviewed: Dec. 14, 2009
Everyone just loves this. Very addicting. I took others advice and used butter and some extra vanilla. I've made 4 batches so far and more to come!

Easy Lemon Cookies

Reviewed: Dec. 22, 2009
I made these twice yesterday. The first batch I used a Betty Crocker Lemon cake mix and they were wonderful! But they didn't make very many cookies so I decided to make another batch. The second batch I couldn't find Betty Crocker and got a Duncan Hines and they were awful! The Duncan Hines batch was flat and ugly. Still tasted ok but not near the fluffy, soft , melt-in-your-mouth texture of the Betty Crocker batch. I took someone's advice and chilled the dough on both batches and this is a very good tip. I also added about a T of lemon juice to both. So double the recipe but get the Betty Crocker Mix and you'll be very pleased!

Baked Buffalo Wings

Reviewed: Dec. 28, 2009
My family says these were the best wings they've every had...counting "professional" ones from BW's. They were tender and crispy and very flavorful. I didn't use the 5 t of cayenne, just probably 1 t, and some garlic and onion powders and salt. I did add about 1/2 cup of Panko bread crumbs. I patted the wings dry and let them sit for a bit as others have recommended. Then dredged them in sauces and butter before baking. I used an actual cookie sheet and would recommend using something closer to a jelly roll pan (something with some sides) as they cook out some and the cookie sheet was in danger leaking drippings onto the bottom of the oven. They were a little labor intensive but well worth it. Thanks for the recipe!

Chocolate Chip Cheese Ball

Reviewed: Dec. 28, 2009
Everyone loved this. I didn't mix the mini chips in but rolled the ball in them. I think it made it easier to spread on the vanilla wafers that I used. I spread the chips out on a piece of plastic wrap and then wrapped the ball in the plastic pressing the chips into the ball and the picked the whole thing up a put slid it into a leftover bowl that was about the same size and the cheese ball and put it in the fridge to chill. Then at serving time just picked up the plastic and ball and rolled onto the serving plate. Worked really well!

Slow Cooker Italian Beef for Sandwiches

Reviewed: Jan. 18, 2010
Need another star! Had never had Italian beef before but it sounded good and it was! I did the recommended alterations of no extra salt, extra packet of Italian dressing and beef broth. I've been told by the hubby that we WILL doing that one again and again.

Andouille and Chicken Creole Pasta

Reviewed: Jan. 26, 2010
My hubby really loved this. I thought it needed a little work from a flavor stand point and consistency. Thought it needed some depth and it didn't thicken like it should. I followed the recipe as written. Next time will try adding the celery and making rouex instead of the cornstarch as some have suggested. I think the sausage needed really browned before adding the chicken to give the sauce some color. Also, both of us thought it would be better over rice instead of pasta.

Boilermaker Tailgate Chili

Reviewed: Jan. 26, 2010
This is chili lovers chili! Yum! I had my doubts..26 ingredients??? The only changes I made were to omit the celery, added a large can of tomato juice and cut the hot pepper sauce and cayenne in half. (You can always add more later but you can't cool it down!) It was still hot but not too hot for us to enjoy. Heat is personal! And adding the tomato juice made less like stew and more like chili. Go Boilers!

French Onion Soup Gratinee

Reviewed: Jan. 27, 2010
Followed the recipe exactly and it was as good, if not better than the fancy resturant versions! Been trying to duplicate those for 20 yrs and could never seem to get the taste I wanted. My search is over! Thank you!

Blue Motorcycle

Reviewed: Jan. 28, 2010
Was looking for blue drinks for my Superbowl party. This is ok but needs a bit of tweaking. Too much alcohol to amount of mixer for me and I love Long Islands. Increased the sour and Sprite and that helped. Pretty color blue though! Thanks.
