Chicken Tagine

Reviewed: May 6, 2010
This was a great blending of ingredients. The proportions were very nice. I used almost the exact incredients but cooked it completely differently, how I observed similar dishes being cooked while in Morocco. I seasoned the chicken thighs and browned them, added the veggies and browned, then added broth, lemon juice, and tomato paste and fruit and simmered for about 2 1/2 hours. It smelled insanely good and was quickly devoured by all. Thank you for sharing this!

Summer Vegetable Salad

Reviewed: Jan. 27, 2010
This is a lovely salad. I didn't add green peppers since I don't like them, and I used 1/4 c each of vinegar and olive oil, and dried basil since I didn't have fresh (1 tsp). I was afraid the garlic would be overwhelming but it was perfect. Thank you!

Chicken Dijon

Reviewed: Jan. 27, 2010
This recipe was very good! I did dredge the chicken in some Grandma's Garden poultry seasoning and flour, and I added some green onions and tarragon to the sauce. I also didn't let the chicken and sauce sit in the oven since I was using it for something else, but the sauce is amazing.

Broiled Red Potatoes

Reviewed: Jan. 27, 2010
I LOVED this recipe! I did microwave them for longer than suggested, about five minutes, and added a little garlic powder. But they were so easy I couldn't believe how good they were!

The Best Rolled Sugar Cookies

Reviewed: Dec. 23, 2009
Pretty good recipe. Tasty and easy. For all the people who had trouble rolling them out, you have to flour your surface and dust the ball of dough with flour too, and every couple rolls pick it up, flip, and dust more flour underneath.

Real Italian Calzones

Reviewed: Dec. 8, 2009
A good recipe. I liked having no sauce inside, it was great to have it on the side for dipping instead. I had never made homemade pizza crust before, and although I had some problems with it sticking as I kneaded, this recipe is simple enough for anyone to do. I did change a few things... I proofed the yeast first as someone suggested, I used 1 c ricotta 1 c mozzerella for the cheese, and I added 1/2 c or so Italian sausage to the pepperoni and mushrooms. I also used Grandma's Garden Italian Seasoning instead of plain basil. I would make this again.

Avocado Salad with Bacon and Sour Cream

Reviewed: Nov. 1, 2009
This was lovely. I didn't really measure, just estimated, and I added some cilantro, and it was perfect with my Mexican dinner. Thanks for the recipe!

Peach Cobbler II

Reviewed: Sep. 10, 2009
I only used one cup of water because I was kind of nervous about the boiling water pouring thing. Maybe two cups makes it cook faster? After 45 minutes I took it out and although the peaches were perfectly cooked the batter ended up being a little undercooked. It was very tasty and easy though, great when you want to use fresh peaches.

Amazing Pork Tenderloin in the Slow Cooker

Reviewed: Sep. 10, 2009
I'm sorry, I did not like this recipe at all. What a waste of a lovely cut of meat. After four hours, it was cooked but still rather tough and dry for some reason. I also thought the combination of soy sauce and wine would be intriguing but it was just kind of odd and I didn't care for it. I would have given it only one star but my husband ate about 2/3 of it and said he would have given it three stars.

Moroccan Tagine

Reviewed: Sep. 10, 2009
I enjoyed this recipe. It reminded me of an actual "tagine" dish I had in Morocco. Based on other reviewers using broth instead of water, I threw in a cube of lamb buillon and I think it was a good choice. (I'm residing in England; I'm not sure you can get lamb buillon in the States.) I also let the pears sit in some lemon juice and cinnamon while the lamb was stewing, and I served it with couscous. My husband didn't like it as much as I did, and I'm guessing the combination of textures and the sweetness being rather unusual for the American palate is why this recipe has some lower ratings. But I thought the almonds, pears, and raisins with the sauce and couscous was the best part!

Cavatini II

Reviewed: Jul. 28, 2009
I assume when you say "spaghetti sauce" you meant the premade jar type, which I never buy... so my sauce was a bit different, I used fresh parsley, basil, and oregano, diced tomatoes and tomato sauce, and a lot more garlic, but other than that, I followed the recipe, and it was lovely. My husband complimented it twice and got seconds; that's the best I can hope for from any meal ;) Thanks!

Ranch Dressing II

Reviewed: Jul. 13, 2009
I used 1/2 c sour cream, 1/2 cup buttermilk, and 1/2 cup mayo, and a bit more dill than it called for, and it was a lovely, fresh alternative to bottled dressing. Thanks!

Cobb Salad

Reviewed: Jul. 13, 2009
I used Oscar Meyer's deli fresh grilled chicken strips to save time. With ranch dressing 2 from this site, this was just as good as any Cobb I've had in a restaurant!

Crystal's Chicken Saltimbocca

Reviewed: Jun. 23, 2009
I used fresh spinach and added sage leaves between the chicken and prosciutto since that's how I had it in Cambridge. Rolled in breadcrumbs and fried in butter, then sauteed more sage, deglazed the pan with wine, poured over the chicken and baked. Possibly the best thing I've ever made.

Hopi Corn Stew

Reviewed: Jun. 18, 2009
Very good recipe, thank you! I cut the recipe down by 1/3, added a tsp of crushed garlic and about a tablespoon of Grandma's Garden southwest seasoning but otherwise left it the same. Hubby and I both liked it a lot.
