Black Bean and Corn Quesadillas

Reviewed: Sep. 17, 2013
Saw the recipe this morning, made it tonight. Five stars and a huge BRAVA! I live in Italy and so the Monterey Jack cheese and black beans weren't available. I substituted fresh provolone cheese and a can of Mexican chili beans and it was still a fantastic recipe! With each bite, you got a taste sensation ride between sweet, salty, and an after kick that said, "Go in for the next bite!" Served it with a Ca' del Plin white wine from Nieve, Italy and some leftover chocolate Torta Caprese. It made a perfect quick last-minute supper with some friends. Thank you!

Red Velvet Cake with Buttercream Frosting

Reviewed: Jun. 26, 2012
I am giving this only two stars because the buttercream frosting is decidedly lacking - it is overly sweet and leaves a waxy aftertaste on the tongue.

Cinnamon-Raisin Coffee Cake

Reviewed: Jun. 16, 2012
I just made this for my morning breakfast, cutting the recipe in 1/2 and using a small spring pan form. The ONLY variation I did to the recipe itself was use dried blueberries instead of raisins as the author suggested. Oh my, this is a super winner of a recipe! I'd give it six stars if the computer would let me!

Roasted Rack of Lamb

Reviewed: May 27, 2012
This was my first time serving lamb at a formal table (filled with Italians who are famous for their culinary discretion). It was a major hit and the overall adjective was 'exquisite'; the highest compliment an Italian knows how to give for their food. This recipe is a winner! The only change I made was on the cooking temperature and times at the suggestion of my butcher: 390F, 200C for 55 minutes on a rack for 8 people. A longer cooking time gave me the opportunity to enjoy cocktails as well as the first soup course with my guests and the lamb was ready to serve at just the right time. I served it with a mint sauce.

Broccoli with Garlic Butter and Cashews

Reviewed: May 27, 2012
This is a wonderful twist for broccoli when you need a slight kick to your side dish. The next time I make it, I'll cut back slightly on the soy sauce.

Garlic Mashed Red Potatoes

Reviewed: May 27, 2012
I served this with roasted rack of lamb and it was the perfect offset to the lamb and mint sauce. The potato skins also created a nice, slightly rustic, touch to the plate. Just as important, since it was a side dish for the second course of a sit down dinner and needed to be prepared quickly while the guests were at the table, the easiness of it earned a sixth star that doesn't show up on the rating.
