Smucker's Chicken Salad with Wild Rice, Pecans, Grapes and Orange Dressing

Reviewed: Apr. 13, 2004
I made this as a side dish for Easter this year and got many compliments, although I thought that the chicken was pretty bland. I cut the chicken into about 1" chunks, which were too big, so I will definitely do the 1/4" strips next time, and maybe pre-season the chicken a little, at least with salt and maybe some garlic or onion powder. I also used regular orange marmalade instead of sugar free (I don't like the flavor of Nutra sweet) and red wine vinager instead of raspberry vinegar and those things worked just fine!

Pork Chops with Blue Cheese Gravy

Reviewed: May 7, 2004
Very flavorful, rich recipe. I used a little more blue cheese than I meant to, so the sauce was quite strong. I used regular cut pork chops instead of thick cut and I also made pasta to soak up some of the sauce. I recommend trying this recipe, but just prepare yourself for a "heavy" meal. I wouldn't plan on having cheesecake for dessert...

Marinated Mushrooms

Reviewed: Oct. 4, 2004
I was testing these out to use at my wedding. Both I and a friend of mine were not crazy about them. They have an italian-salsa-ish feel to them, which is just not what I think of when I think marinated mushrooms. They were certainly eatible, but will not be on my wedding food table! Oh, and prepare yourself for some horrific breath!! Whew!

Jean's Marinated Mushrooms

Reviewed: Oct. 4, 2004
I was trying these out for my wedding and I found them to be very bland. I followed the recipe pretty closely, but just wasn't impressed. I'll keep looking.... thanks for the recipe though.

Maple Sponge Candy

Reviewed: Dec. 30, 2004
I'm pretty sure I did everything right, but this candy was much more brittle than I had hoped. It had a great taste, but you wound up picking it out of your teeth for an hour after eating a piece! I don't know if it should be cooked a to a little bit lower temperature, or if there are retrictions on how much to stir after you add the soda or what, but I will not make this one again. Also, maybe the fact that I live at 5500 feet made a difference? Thanks anyway for the recipe!

Danish Almond Puff

Reviewed: Jan. 26, 2005
I took the advice of an earlier reviewer and spread a thin layer of almond paste between layers and topped with sliced almonds instead of candy sprinkles. I also was so excited to try it, that I didn't wait for it to cool to room temp before frosting, and I am glad, as it was so much better warm than cold. I found it to be a bit bland, and my husband and I thought that maybe a thin layer of lemon filling or even fruit filling might make it a little bit more tasty. Leftovers didn't keep well at all, so I would half the recipe unless you have a crowd!

Rosemary-Scented Pork Loin Stuffed With Roasted Garlic, Dried Apricots and Cranberries and Port Wine Pan Sauce

Reviewed: Jun. 23, 2005
A fabulous recipe! I made this for a large dinner party and wanted to save some time, so I stuffed the loin the night before. I think doing this allowed the garlic and rosemary flavors to completely permeate the entire body of the roast. It was a complete success, and quite beautiful as well.

Banana Crepes

Reviewed: Jun. 23, 2005
Very nice recipe. I made these as the finale of a fairly fancy dinner for a large group. I made the crepes in the morning and layered them between wax paper and also made the sauce earlier in the day. When it was time for desert, I just heated the sauce, threw in the bananas, and while they were cooking, I drizzled chocolate syrup on the dessert plates, rolled the banana up in the crepe, and topped with the whipped cream and sauce and a strawberry and mint leaf on the side. It was absolutely beautiful, and a hit in every way.
