Balsamic-Glazed Salmon Fillets

Reviewed: Mar. 16, 2006
Good, but I think I prefer balsamic glaze on chicken and prefer something lighter on fish.

Parmesan Potatoes

Reviewed: Jan. 27, 2006
Hubby LOVED these. I halved the recipe, used Yukon gold potatoes, and put them in zip bag with just a couple tbsps. of olive oil to coat first. I mixed the parmesan, flour, some garlic salt and onion powder in a small bowl, and then tossed that in the bag. Baked the potatoes at 400 for about 50 minutes on a stoneware pan - crispy and delicious. Didn't feel so guilty about them by omitting all the butter..

Kalua Pig in a Slow Cooker

Reviewed: Jan. 27, 2006
I could not find pork butt, so I used boneless country style ribs, about 4.5 pounds. I cut down on the salt and smoke, (I did find the Hawaiian salt in Kings, an upscale grocery store chain in my area, next time would cut back a little more. Only cooked about 8 hrs. on low. Shredded and made sandwiches with slaw and BBQ sauce. A tasty change, but not as big a hit with the kids as I would have hoped.

Health Nut Blueberry Muffins

Reviewed: Jan. 27, 2006
These tasted delicious, mine just didn't look pretty. A major part of the problem is that I used frozen wild blueberries which turned the batter a gray-ish color. That, along with the rough texture of the batter, turned off two out of three of my kids. I was amazed at how flavorful these tasted, considering all those whole grains. May try again with fresh berries.

Goat Cheese and Arugula over Penne

Reviewed: Jan. 11, 2006
Delicious. Sauteed the garlic in the olive oil along with about six sliced baby bella mushrooms. Poured that over the cheese and arugula and let it sit at room temp for about an hour. Tossed in a handfull of kalamata olives too. Very versatile recipe, I think you could substitute a variety of ingredients depending on what you have on hand: artichokes, sun-dried tomatoes, even add shrimp or sausage.

Greek Style Potatoes

Reviewed: Jan. 8, 2006
I just found the lemon overpowering. I think the method of cooking, in broth and olive oil and spices, is probably a good idea. I may try again with either no lemon, or half the amount called for.

Roast Leg of Lamb with Rosemary

Reviewed: Jan. 8, 2006
Disappointing. Marinated a boneless leg of lamb for a day and a half, even cutting slits to help the marinace penetrate, and we didn't notice much flavor enhancement at all.

Mama's Italian Wedding Soup

Reviewed: Dec. 18, 2005
Good recipe, but one that you should definitely play with according to your tastes. I will try baking the meatballs next time and add a bit more flavor to them with spices or ground pork. I sauteed the veggies in a touch of butter before adding the broth. Certainly hearty enough for dinner. I will try again!

Spicy Bean Salsa

Reviewed: Nov. 18, 2005
really good, but almost more of a salad than salsa. Also, I made with fresh jalapenos and found there was not quite enough kick.

Linguine with Scampi

Reviewed: Nov. 18, 2005
Delicious.I used one third butter, one third EVOO, and one third chicken broth, and it was plenty rich. I would consider using less butter/oil next time. Tossed some steamed broccoli in with the pasta to make a complete meal.

Baked Ziti I

Reviewed: Nov. 18, 2005
Good, but believe it or not, could have used more cheese. The sour cream was an interesting touch, most people thought it was ricotta.

Delicious Easy Chicken Francese

Reviewed: Nov. 18, 2005
The corn starch thickening is a little tricky, I had to add about twice as much, but otherwise a delicious recipe.

Cream of Spinach Soup

Reviewed: Sep. 15, 2005
Excellent, relatively easy.I had a mega-bag of fresh baby spinach from the wholesale store and so I cooked that in chicken broth (instead of boullion). I ran it thru the blender for a few seconds for a less leafy consistency. Also added a bit of grated onion and garlic to the butter, as others suggested. Will make again, delicious garnished with croutons and shredded cheese.

Peach Upside Down Cake I

Reviewed: Aug. 23, 2005
This was OK, the cake part was a little bland, maybe some vanilla or almond extract would make it a little more interesting. The presentation leaves a bit to be desired - I think I would slice peaches and maybe do a spiral design in a round pan if I tried this again, The peach halves just looked like big hunks.

Chocolate Cakes with Liquid Centers

Reviewed: Jul. 11, 2005
Flavor on these was very good, but be very careful with your baking, these are tempermental little cakes. Mine were a mess, presentation-wise. I prepared ahead and refrigerated for a few hours, put them on the counter while the oven preheated (20 minutes or so) and then baked. I knew they would take longer to cook, but the big problem was that the tops started to burn and the inside was still totally uncooked. I tried to unmold one and it just poured out of the ramekin. Ended up eating out of the dish...Will probably try again, but will adjust cook temp/time...

Hershey's ® Chocolate Mousse

Reviewed: Jul. 5, 2005
Is there such a thing as too rich? Maybe this is it... It was delicious but they are not kidding when they say this serves four. I doubled because I thought a 1/2 cup portion of mousse would look skimpy in the serving dish. But, any more than that goes uneaten...

Santa Fe Rice Salad

Reviewed: Jul. 5, 2005
Overall a nice basic recipe. When I make again I will make a few adjustments. I used a fresh jalapeno, removing the seeds, which didn't provide enough zing to the dressing. Next time will use the prepared jalapeno and maybe add some cumin or cilantro to pep up the dressing. I used white vinegar which was a little strong for my taste. I will either cut down on the amount or use rice vinegar for a lighter taste. Also, needed some crunch, so chopped bell pepper or even celery would be a good addition. And cheese is kind of unnecessary, added calories but not much taste...

Tequila Cocktail Sauce

Reviewed: Jul. 5, 2005
I sized this to serve 10, and then went a little easy on the horseradish due to personal preference. Tasty, but I also might try just adding a splash of lemon or lime and tequila to bought cocktail sauce just to make a quicker version.

Absolute Mexican Cornbread

Reviewed: Jul. 5, 2005
Wow, where did I go wrong?? This was tasty, but the texture was more like a dense corn pudding. It turned a light golden brown, but didn't look like bread. I reviewed the recipe and I don't think I messed up any of the measurements, so I can't quite figure this out. Won't try again.

Chicken and Spinach Alfredo Lasagna

Reviewed: May 31, 2005
Delicious, even though I lightened it up a bit -- used 1 cup whole milk, 2 cups cream, lowfat cottage cheese instead of ricotta, and lowfat soup. ALso used 4 chicken breasts instead of the whole chicken and frozen spinach -- this cut down prep time. May try fat free half and half next time and cut out cream entirely.
