Sage Pork Chops

Reviewed: Oct. 16, 2006
I have made this twice, and it has been good, not great. Maybe I cooked it a bit too long, but the chops were a bit dry. Making a gravy from the broth mixture is the saving grace. I think I will try the onion and garlic to jazz up a bit.

Glazed Meatloaf I

Reviewed: Oct. 16, 2006
Used half turkey and half beef, bread crumbs instead of bread, and dijon mustard instead of powdered. Moist and delicious. Double the sauce!

Apple Brownies

Reviewed: Sep. 19, 2006
Good, but I doubled the recipe to make a 9X13 pan and it actually tasted too buttery and not apple-y enough for me. It was even a little greasy. May try again and sub applesauce for 1/2 the butter.

Down Home Baked Beans

Reviewed: Sep. 4, 2006
Cut way back on sugar - used only 1/2 cup. Otherwise, simple and delicious.

Scott Ure's Clams And Garlic

Reviewed: May 8, 2006
Yum. I added two shallots, diced, right before the garlic, fabulous. Served over linguine.

Flounder Mediterranean

Reviewed: May 4, 2006
Delicious and flexible recipe. I used with cod, a little thicker so had to cook longer, naturally. I threw about a cup of fresh baby spinach into the sauce that I needed to use up and that worked just fine. I sprinkled a little goat cheese on top for the last 5 minutes of baking, served with rice.

Crab Stuffed Flounder

Reviewed: Mar. 30, 2006
Very good and also adaptable. I didn't have enough crabmeat on hand so I used one can of crab and one can of baby wild shrimp. Also used 1 tsp. of dijon mustard instead of the dry, added 1/2 tsp. Old Bay, and used only half as much butter to cut back on fat, subbed red pepper for green, and omitted the salt and the mayo/egg topping altogether.

Easy Slow Cooker French Dip

Reviewed: Mar. 20, 2006
800 people can't be wrong about this, so the purpose of my review is to warn you to follow this recipe closely because you can screw it up! My changes apparently kept this from turning out as well as I had hoped. First, use the cut of meat specified. I used a top round (very lean) cut and it was tough at first, so I cooked it longer and then it became really dry. Also, I threw in a 14.5 ounce can of reduced salt beef broth instead of 10.5 ounce and I think it diluted the flavor of the French onion too much. The broth was pretty bland,so I would probably not use the reduced sodium next time, either.

Fruit Dip VI

Reviewed: Mar. 16, 2006
Great simple recipe. I added about 1/2 cup of plain Greek yogurt (creamier and less tangy than the regular yogurt, available in high-end grocery store or Trader Joes)and this toned down the cream cheese. I think it would have been like cheese cake otherwise. Might be fun to experiment with other flavorings, like almond extract instead of vanilla.

Pina Colada Dip

Reviewed: Mar. 16, 2006
Fine, but not fabulous. Don't know what is wrong exactly, just not as much flavor as we had hoped.

Raspberry Almond Coffeecake

Reviewed: Mar. 16, 2006
Delicious, but definitely double the recipe. I replaced the vanilla with almond extract for a little more interest and skipped the glaze altogether. Used frozen berry mix instead of fresh and it was terrific.

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.
