Pork Chops with Raspberry Sauce

Reviewed: Dec. 10, 2013
Easy and very tasty - good way to make a week night feel a little special. I did cut the vinegar to 1 T and added an extra T of oj. Will double the recipe for the sauce and try it on pork tenderloin next.

Cinnamon Apple Sweet Potatoes

Reviewed: Nov. 28, 2013
I've made this for a few years now and it's a wonderful recipe - it's become a tradition in our family. My method is a little different than the recipe as I don't like to boil the sweet potatoes and lose ANY nutrients, so I slice the sweet potatoes and apple about 1/4" thick, then layer them starting and ending with potatoes. I allow my layers to be "porous", not covering ever speck of space so that the sauce can meander throughout. This year I used Honeycrisp apples, so reduced the sugar to a cup as they are sweet. I cook them until the potatoes are tender, not really caring how long it actually takes - an hour or so. Excellent!

Colcannon Bake

Reviewed: Oct. 20, 2013
This will be my healthier alternative to scalloped potatoes. I had some left over ham and added maybe 1/2 cup of it to the recipe, used small red potatoes with the skins on for more nutrition & color, and used a coleslaw/carrot ready mix. Also used vegetable broth because I had it on hand & it enabled me to cut down on the butter. It was very colorful & a bit healthier with these changes - but as I stated in the beginning, this turned into an alternative to scalloped potatoes. I will follow the directions "as is" for the next Irish meal that I make.

Zucchini Herb Casserole

Reviewed: Oct. 20, 2013
There is a lot to love about this recipe! It's a great weekday meal - quick, easy, low calorie (& WW Points)very flavorful - especially if you increase the herbs & spices. I usually use vegetable broth instead of water, sometimes add a little carrots or peas to add a little color & additional vegetable and use low fat cheese. I serve it as a meatless meal.

Fondant Potatoes

Reviewed: Oct. 12, 2013
I made these on a rainy day when I was a little bored because they sounded tasty and time consuming, and they were definately both! We enjoyed them, but too fussy for everyday rotation. Impressive looking!

Hatteras Style Clam Chowder

Reviewed: Aug. 21, 2013
My New England born & bred husband prefers Manhattan style, I'm a native New Yorker who prefers New England style and this is one we both really liked - might have something to do with the OBX being our all time favorite vacation spot. Thanks for sharing!

Taco Bake II

Reviewed: Aug. 18, 2013
I wasn't really impressed with this recipe, but because I made a lot of it, I gave the leftovers to my very pregnanat daughter so that she could make a quick dinner for her family, and THEY loved it!

Slow Cooker Chicken and Dumplings

Reviewed: Jun. 23, 2013
Very easy, very tasty, great basic recipe but for me, chicken & dumplings means carrots, peas & celery so I added them and was very happy with it. My husband doesn't like dumplings and I love them, so I used a small can of the biscuits and we were both satisfied! Love having a good slow-cooker recipe for a favorite comfort food.

Amazing Muffin Cups

Reviewed: Jun. 23, 2013
I was looking for something that I could make on the week-end, freeze then bring to work for breakfast and this worked very well. I did make some changes for subsequent batches: I bought a bigger muffin pan & mashed fresh potatoes with some cheese and lined the cups with them. I followed the recipe after that, including browning the potatoes. This worked best for me & they are wonderful! I freeze them in individual baggies, then keep them in a freezer bag to grab & go. Bacon & plain cheese works well, too. Wicked good recipe!

Dilled Shrimp Salad

Reviewed: Jun. 23, 2013
We loved this recipe so I made another batch for a luncheon at work and a lot more people validated it - it's a 5 star recipe! I did add about 2 TBS dill pickle salad chunks because I really like dill, but it didn't need it - the recipe is solid on it's own. I'm planning to make it again this week. Thanks, Dirk!

Risotto with Truffle and Parmesan

Reviewed: Jun. 20, 2013
This is a great recipe and I will definately make it again! I followed the recipe exactly - no deviations - & it turned out perfectly. It does take time and you must stay on top of the stirring so it won't often make the week night rotation for us, but it's an excellent choice for special occassions or a Sunday dinner.

Morning Glory Muffins I

Reviewed: Apr. 28, 2013
Just made my first batch and they are incredible! I don't know how the reviewer who didn't have enough batter messed them up, but I had plenty - a dozen reg sized and 2 dozen minis for my macaw - who gave them several "yums" - his highest rating. I happened to find some really nice zucchini the day before so made them 1/2 carrot & 1/2 zucchini & I also used dried mixed berriess instead of raisins, flax instead of wheat germ and 1/2 white, 1/2 wheat pastry flour. I did use paper cups - mistake! The muffins stuck to the paper but the minis popped right out.

Cindy's Really Good Au Gratin Potatoes

Reviewed: Apr. 21, 2013
All of the measurements were off: the rue too thick, there was way too much cracker crumb for a topping and the whole thing was bland. In retrospect I should've known better - I did read the ingredients. It's too bad that folks rate a recipe based upon how it tasted AFTER they fixed it.

Brined Pork and Sauerkraut

Reviewed: Jan. 26, 2013
I'm truly sorry that I couldn't give this recipe a better rating, but it just didn't deserve it. I followed the recipe with one exception: I used less sauerkraut. If you are intrigued with the recipe, don't be discouraged - maybe I misread something and am unaware of it, but I would advise NOT using any of the brine for the cooking portion - use apple juice instead

Foolproof Rib Roast

Reviewed: Jan. 4, 2013
I tried this recipe on New Year's Day and received rave reviews - it truly melted in our mouths! I can't imagine making a ribroast any other way. Wonderful!

Wake-Up Casserole

Reviewed: Dec. 24, 2012
We've used this recipe for Christmas and Easter brunch for several years now. I do crisp the hash browns & add some fried onion & occassionally peppers to the eggs as I would for an omelet, and sometimes I substitute pre-cooked bacon pieces for the ham. Excellent recipe and so easy!

Crispy Fish

Reviewed: Oct. 20, 2012
This is a favorite recipe exactly as written, but now that it's in my rotation, I use garlic potato flakes which I now keep on hand just for this recipe, 1/2 C of the flour and as a long-time Marylander, I should move out of this beautiful state if I didn't substitute Old Bay for the cayenne. Very, very good recipe.

Ginger Salmon

Reviewed: Sep. 12, 2012
I used the foil packet method for cooking, then broiled them for about 5 minutes to set the glaze - perfect! The only thing that I would do differently next time, would be to double the glaze to have some to add at table. I'll try the glaze on something else for sure - perhaps pork chops. Very nice and pretty!

Salmon Pasta with Spinach and Artichokes

Reviewed: Jun. 27, 2012
My husband and & I really liked this, but it was a little complicated. Not wanting to turn the oven on, I pan fried the salmon, then used the same pan for everything else - removing as much of the pesto from the salmon as possible so it didn't burn & turn the meal bitter. It worked great and the flavors worked well together. I look forward to having leftovers for lunch tomorrow!
