Fresh Asparagus with Curry Dip

Reviewed: Aug. 1, 2015
This is the best one - just the right balance of flavors. Tried it with a little sour cream but prefer the straight mayo

Rosemary Shortbread Cookies

Reviewed: Jul. 17, 2015
Absolutely delicious! A shortbread is my favorite type of cookie; add rosemary and I'm in heaven! The cookies have a perfect balance of flavors with a few simple ingredients; and they smell divine! I found the dough extremely easy to work with as long as you chill it for an hour as instructed before trying to roll it out. For those who had issues with the dough, maybe the following will help. DO use a good quality UNsalted butter, as called for in the recipe, for two reasons: 1) salted butter has a higher water content (and thus lower fat content) than unsalted which can defininitely affect baked goods, especially cookies and 2) unsalted butter allows for more adjustment to the salt in a recipe as different brands of salted butters can have different (and unknown) amounts of salt. I feel like the amount of salt in this recipe, coupled with unsalted butter is perfect; but that's a very subjective opinion - others may prefer less salt flavor. When measuring flour it's important to spoon it into the measuring cup lightly and level it; otherwise you can wind up with too much flour since flour "settles" a great deal. When I creamed the butter and sugar together I did so for 6 minutes at medium speed on a KitchenAid mixer in order to get it to the right consistency, then slowly added the flour (already mixed with salt and rosemary) in several small amounts on "stir" just until mixed. Hope this might help anyone who had trouble with the dough. These cookies are too good to miss!

Battle River Bison Chili

Reviewed: Apr. 28, 2015
Really good - quick and easy to make. Have even subbed half ground beef, half ground pork when I didn't have bison. Liked using additions from my other chili recipe and especially liked using fresh cilantro.

Roasted Vegetables

Reviewed: Apr. 22, 2015
This is one of our favorite dishes, and oh, so versatile using various combinations of vegetables. Love it as written, but one of our favorite combinations is to use purple passion potatoes, Yukon Golds, onion, and carrots, without the Balsamic in this case. I always roast at 425 degrees and it turns out great, in 30-45 minutes. 475 is just too hot for olive oil and not necessary.

Roasted Rack of Lamb

Reviewed: Apr. 4, 2015
We thought this was delicious. I did, however, use Kosher salt and the amount was just right - not salty at all. Since the recipe doesn't specify Kosher salt, I think that the reviewers who found this to be too salty probably used regular table salt and that would have been too salty. I always use Kosher salt for this method of cooking meats - so much better!

Crock Pot Balsamic Chicken Thighs

Reviewed: Mar. 6, 2015
Made as directed and was very easy and yummy. Sauce was good over rice as a side dish. Great recipe for boneless, skinless chicken thighs.

Braised Balsamic Chicken

Reviewed: Feb. 12, 2015
Really like this. I DO use a quality balsamic vinegar however; but that always makes a big difference in any recipe. I also pound the chicken breasts slightly to make them tender. This is definitely going into my regular rotation - thanks!
