Quiche

Reviewed: Oct. 15, 2003
This is such a great "base" recipe! I use red bell pepper instead of pimento and I have also done a version with cooked crumbled bacon and frozen spinach (squeezed very dry), you can add sauted onions or mushrooms or anything else you like. These are so nice to have on hand for any unexpected occasion!

Chewy Cocoa Brownies

Reviewed: Apr. 15, 2006
If you need a chocolate fix this is it! What I had on hand was Hershey's dutch cocoa and chocolate chips...no nuts. They were quick and easy to prepare and sinfully delicious. I will never use a boxed mix again!

This is so delicious! After plating the chicken I poured the sauce over the top and garnished with a little more parsley. Served with fresh green beans and crusty bread.

Butter Flaky Pie Crust

Reviewed: Aug. 11, 2006
This is exactly what I've been looking for! I think I may have over worked the dough a little but it still turned out okay and the taste was superb. How can you go wrong with butter??!!? Will definately use again.

Pasta Primavera with Italian Turkey Sausage

Reviewed: Oct. 4, 2006
Really good. I had a yellow pepper on hand and probably used less oil since I just "eyeballed" the pour. I think you could use other veggies too...like fresh green beans or carrots. Next time I will use less pasta for more sauciness but this is definately good, easy comfort food! Thanks!

Espresso - Chocolate Cheesecake

Reviewed: Jan. 28, 2007
This recipe has several steps but it truly is worth the effort. It is so creamy and the taste is incredible. I like to score the top into the 12 servings and drizzle each slice with melted chocolate. If you like, you can also decorate with a dollop of whipped cream and a chocolate covered espresso bean. The presentation of this cake is really nice.

Lighter Banana Muffins

Reviewed: Feb. 14, 2007
Very good base but I too added my own spin on these. Used 1 cup whole wheat flour, added 1/2 tsp vanilla, 1 tsp cinnamon, 1 tsp baking powder, 1/4 cup milk and cut the sugar to 1/2 cup. I used 4 egg whites and mixed the sugar, bananas, milk & vanilla with 2 of them, mixed in the dry ingredients, then whipped the other egg whites until stiff and folded them in. I sprinkled the tops with a few finely chopped pecans before baking at 375. If you put them in a zip lock bag before they are completely cool it will help them to loose that rubbery feeling. I did the math and on Weight Watchers these are worth about 2 points each!

Artichoke & Spinach Dip Restaurant Style

Reviewed: Sep. 27, 2007
This is really good and so easy. I like to serve it with baguette bread that I brush with olive oil and garlic, sprinkle with parmesan cheese and lightly toast in the oven.

Wonderful Banana Cake

Reviewed: Oct. 2, 2007
Instead of starting with a cold oven I set my temp at 325 and test with a toothpick when I start to smell the cake. I also bake 2 8" layers and use fresh whipped cream mixed with powdered sugar, vanilla and a stabalizer to fill and ice the cake. I assemble as follows: Split both layers and put 1/2 layer on plate. Top with 1/4" whipped cream and another 1/2 layer. Spread with small amount of cream and sliced fresh bananas. Cover bananas with more cream and 1/2 layer of cake. Top with more cream and last layer of cake. Ice entire cake in whipped cream, cover sides with cake crumbs or finely chopped walnuts. Add a border and a rosette topped with a cherry if desired. This cake is best when it sits overnight.

This is an excellent cake. I baked some of the batter as cupcakes which could almost be eaten as a breakfast muffin. Will be keeping this one on hand!!

Mexican Rice II

Reviewed: Aug. 9, 2008
This recipe is perfect and so close to the restaurant style! I didn't have garlic salt so I added a large clove of minced garlic along with the onion. Otherwise followed exactly. I also doubled the recipe and used a large skillet to cook in and it was excellent! Thank you! This will be a keeper!

Grilled Halibut with Cilantro Garlic Butter

Reviewed: Sep. 30, 2008
I was lucky enough to have freshly caught halibut from my neighbor so this recipe was perfect! I did not change a thing except that I used a grill pan and it was delightful!! Served over greens with tomatoes, avocados and vinegarette and warm artisan bread. Yummmm!

Boston Baked Beans

Reviewed: Jun. 17, 2009
These are really good! My beans were tender after cooking so I only baked them for 2 hours and they were perfect. I also doubled the sauce and mixed everything in a bowl before baking. Super recipe, I will never buy canned baked beans again! Thanks!
