Roasted Brussels Sprouts with Apples, Golden Raisins, and Walnuts

Reviewed: Dec. 21, 2014
This was a hit with my entire family; I will definitely make again! Adjustments that I made (mostly based on the contents in my cupboards): I used an entire head of cauliflower (had to get used); pinor noir instead of white wine (and added in with all other ingredients), pecans instead of walnuts and left out the raisins but added in 6 strips of uncooked bacon to the mixture before cooking. Cooked at 450 for 30 mins (like another reviewer, I like the veggies a bit browned).

Peach and Escarole Salad

Reviewed: Jul. 28, 2014
Simple and amazing; paired it with the Maple Salmon recipe and had one delicious meal. I did have to substitue balsamic for sherry vinegar, but I don't know if anyone would ever know the difference. Also, I doubled the peaches and goat cheese only because the peaches were in season and perfect.

Stuffed Pork Chops with Gorgonzola and Apple

Reviewed: Dec. 27, 2013
Although I had to improvise with Feta (mishap with the grocery list), I was thrilled with the result. Used the same amount of traditionl crumbled Feta in lieu of the gorgonzola, browned the pork chops prior to baking them (as others had suggested), and then used a meat thermometor so as not to overcook (160 F). For those that were having issues wth the sauce, I followed another reviewer's suggestion of using the same pan and remaining drippings from the browning of the pork. Also, rather than using the remaining 1/4 c chicken broth as the recipe suggested, I added another tbsp or so of sherry about halfway through, continuously mixing with a whisk, and the sauce reduced beautifully. We served it with a sauteed pepper/onion mix over spinach salad (using the sauce as the dressing) and a wild rice dish leftover from another meal. Ridiculously delicious. We were too hungry to remember the photo, but it was beautiful!

Curried Butternut Squash and Pear Soup

Reviewed: Sep. 30, 2013
Ridiculous, actually. Butternut Squash soup is one of my favorites to order in the fall/winter; this recipe is on par with the best I've ever had from a restaurant. Only slight changes to the recipe (based on what wasn't in my fridge/cupboard): I used powdered ginger (same amount as called for) and skim milk vs. half and half. Also, I was in a hurry so I was still baking my squash while the rest of the ingredients simmered, but it didn't seem to matter. Will definitely make this one again and again.

Maple Salmon

Reviewed: Feb. 11, 2013
Incredible flavor; next time I will probably take the suggestion of other reviewers and cook in foil for the first 15 mins, then broil on high for the last five. Otherwise, perfect.
