African Curry

Reviewed: Jan. 19, 2014
Really liked this and the aroma is amazing. Followed the advice of several reviewers by tripling the garlic and more than doubling the curry. Used lite Thai coconut milk to save fat and calories and a can of garlic seasoned petite diced tomatoes as substitutes. Also added a Tbsp of light brown sugar to the coconut milk stage. Served over brown rice. Not spicy at all but that's easy to adjust. My family enjoyed, husband said "great restaurant quality". Will definitely make again.

Special Lobster Bisque

Reviewed: Aug. 6, 2013
I followed the recipe pretty closely except for the following: added 1/3 cup sherry with the broth, used unsalted butter, left out plain salt and used 1/2 tsp garlic salt & 1/2 tsp Old Bay instead. Instead of whole milk I used 2.25 c nonfat milk & 2.25 c half&half. Left out last addt'l cream and paprika (it's in the Old Bay anyway). Did not have an onion so I used dried minced, 1.5 Tbsp. i pureed the bisque with an immersion blender to distribute the lobster flavor throughout the bisque. This thickens it a bit too. I served with Parmesan garlic bread toasted under the broiler and a nice salad. 4 stars.

Grilled Bacon Jalapeno Wraps

Reviewed: Jan. 27, 2013
These were fabulous and first appetizer gobbled up at our party. Easy to make, although seeding the jalapeƱos(30 for me!) can tickle your throat a bit and make your fingertips tingle. Take a fresh air break and wash your hands every so often. We roasted the peppers on our indoor electric grill and turned them over with tongs as the bacon became crispy on each side. Will definitely make again!

Greek Souzoukaklia

Reviewed: Jan. 27, 2013
Pretty bland, definitely needs something. Made for Greek themed party and although a few folks said they liked it, lots of leftovers suggests most did not.

Shrimp Scampi Bake

Reviewed: Nov. 17, 2010
Loved this recipe, it's so easy and my family likes this scampi version better than our favorite Italian restaurant. Added a little more garlic and I followed others suggestions by adding some Old Bay and Parmesan. May try the Italian breadcrumbs next time too.

Alfredo Sauce

Reviewed: Nov. 14, 2009
We really liked this sauce, though I didn't have any heavy cream so I used half & half instead. To thicken it up towards the end I added an additional 1/2 cup of finely grated parmesan to the sauce and a little Wondra flour. Sprinkling with garlic salt to taste made it perfect.

Country Apple Dumplings

Reviewed: Jul. 13, 2009
I love this apple dumpling recipe. When I make it, I cut the sugar to 3/4 cup and it's still plenty sweet. Not as good with Sprite. Mountain Dew is the key! The recipe is always a hit and all my guests ask for the recipe. So easy too!

Spinach Salad With Berries and Curry Dressing

Reviewed: Jul. 13, 2009
My husband and I loved this, kids did not(of course!). Didn't have any Dijon so I substituted spicy brown mustard instead and it still came out great. The dressing is delicious. I'm making this again tonight as I have lots of strawberries and blueberries on hand.

Baby Back Ribs

Reviewed: Feb. 1, 2009
These ribs are soooo easy and soooo good too! I also drain the excess liquid after baking, reglaze with additional BBQ sauce and broil for a few minutes to carmelize. Always a hit at my house and especially for football parties.

Tilapia Pitas

Reviewed: Mar. 15, 2007
In a word...yum! I switched the recipe up just a little bit by lightly breading the tilapia with homemade bread crumbs for a nice crunch. I served the fish "soft taco" style in a flour tortilla and left the anchovies out of the sauce. This meal was a real hit at my house and my visiting friend raved too.

Cottage Cheese Chicken Enchiladas

Reviewed: Aug. 5, 2006
My husband absolutely loved these enchiladas! I did it the speedy way and used 2 cans of Costco/Kirkland white meat chicken breast and only one small can 4.5 oz of chopped green chillies. The rest of the recipe, I followed to the letter except for adding a can of sliced black olives over the top. So easy to make too. My 5 year old ate every bit and told me, "I like these mom!" I followed another reviewers advice and let the dish set for 5 minutes before serving...not so messy that way. We're eating the left-overs tomorrow for dinner...YUMMY :) When I have more time, I use chicken pulled from a rotisserie hen. Makes this recipe even more delicious!
