Burrito Pie

Reviewed: Jan. 14, 2012
Good. Combining the beans with the meat made the texture a little mushy, however. Might try spreading them on the tortillas as some suggested.

Penne with Shrimp

Reviewed: Jan. 9, 2012
Good - I did not have parmesan cheese so we used about a 1/2 cup of feta for a little Greek flair - also tossed in a little Italian seasoning. yummy and pretty low fat, considering...

Slow Cooker Lemon Garlic Chicken II

Reviewed: Jan. 8, 2012
Pretty good as written. Added a bit more broth and used more of the oregano mixture. I think I may try adding capers at the end next time just for a little more zing. Maybe more garlic, too...And might try cutting up the chicken into bite size pieces since the sauce is the best part. And throw in broccoli or green beans for the last half hour to make a one pot meal over rice or noodles...

World's Best Lasagna

Reviewed: Jan. 1, 2012
I usually wing it with lasagna, maybe just loosely reading the instructions on the back of the box of noodles, but I always had a problem with it turning out too soupy. This recipe took care of that problem and was delicious. A little more time consuming maybe than using jar sauce, but not bad, esp. when you make the sauce the day before...

Topsy-Turvy Apple Pie

Reviewed: Dec. 28, 2011
delicious! I lined the pie plate with parchment so I did not have any difficulty getting it out. I flipped it about 5 minutes after taking it out of the oven, since so many people had warned about it sticking if you wait too long. However, I did have a bit of the juice from the apples seep out the vents and pool around the bottom of the now upside down pie. It ended up still being moist, so not a problem, just did not look quite as nice. Next time I might wait longer. I did not have corn syrup, so I used maple, could not really taste it. I think maybe the syrup serves another function, like smoothing out the brown sugar and butter. Mine was a little granular, but still totally delicious.

Pumpkin Pie Flan

Reviewed: Dec. 23, 2011
pretty good. we did not taste a whole lot of pumpkin - but the pumpkin did make the texture a little strange. I think I just prefer the standard flan.

Best Ever Brisket

Reviewed: Dec. 19, 2011
Great spice rub - I did not have seasoning salt so I used paprika instead - cooked in my Dutch oven and it turned out great. I made gravy with the pan juices, adding a little extra beef stock and thickening with flour and water. I was concerned that it would be too spicy with all that chili powder, but it was great, just the slightest bit of kick under a lot of good flavor.

Traditional Osso Buco

Reviewed: Dec. 17, 2011
Pretty good flavors - maybe I am just not as big a fan of osso bucco as I thought - it was just a little more oily and fatty than I expected. However, I did use lamb and not veal, so very possible that was the problem.

Saltine Toffee Cookies

Reviewed: Dec. 7, 2011
delicious and simple - however I made the mistake of popping the cookies back in the oven to melt the chocolate and the chocolate started to separate and get a little weird looking - it didn't melt smoothly - i think it might be called seizing (?) - anyway, tasted good but didn't look so hot. Won't do that again.

Gisela's Butternut Squash Soup

Reviewed: Nov. 29, 2011
Yum - used a bit less butter and Greek yogurt instead of sour cream at the end so it was a little more lo-cal. Delicious. The pot was gone in no time! Costco's peeled and cubed squash make this so easy! Update: I had a little too much squash last time I made this and not quite enough broth so I added about a half cup of white wine. Also a few shakes of ground ginger and cayenne. I also just use about a cup of OJ instead of juicing and zesting an actual orange.

got rave reviews on Thanksgiving. Nice additions to the standard dressing. Used Martins potato bread dressing cubes and a little extra broth.

Awesome and Easy Creamy Corn Casserole

Reviewed: Nov. 14, 2011
This was just OK for us - I can't get past the tin-can taste of canned corn, particularly canned creamed corn. Probably won't make again.

Roquefort Pear Salad

Reviewed: Oct. 7, 2011
Yum! the hardest part is not eating all the candied pecans before you make the salad! The only mustard I had on hand was country dijon (the one with the seeds) and it made the dressing pretty zingy - next time I will try it with regular dijon

Yummy Bok Choy Salad

Reviewed: Sep. 26, 2011
I went out on a limb and bought a box of baby bok choy at Costco - there must have been 20 of those little guys in there - and then thought "What am I going to do with all this?" - making the bok choy the base of a salad is a great idea and such a nice change from the usual lettuce and spinach. I chopped everything up, added a little grated carrot and chopped red pepper, just because I had some on hand and left it undressed in an airtight container in the fridge. I had it for lunch with a little turkey or chicken on top for protein. Also used it as a side at dinner time that week. It keeps well and was a flavorful change of pace.

Restaurant Style Egg Drop Soup

Reviewed: Sep. 26, 2011
Good, the broth just seemed to be lacking a little something, but I can't put my finger on it...Might try one of the other recipes that call for soy sauce and a touch of sugar...

Elegant Fig Appetizers with Goat Cheese and Almonds

Reviewed: Aug. 24, 2011
Simple and delicious - Costco had a large package of beautiful figs and I wanted to experiment - and luckily I had all these ingredients already on hand! Heating the figs brings out the sweetness, the goat cheese is nice and tangy, and the almonds add crunch. The balsamic and honey are a nice touch, too.

Dessert Crepes

Reviewed: Jun. 1, 2011
Super! My daughter had been begging me to make crepes - I filled these with sliced strawberries and just a few choc. chips, the chips melted in the hot crepe and they were divine! Would be lovely as a savory crepe as well with ham and cheese or veggies and cheese.

Simple Scones

Reviewed: Jun. 1, 2011
for a great savory scone - cut the sugar in half and add a handful of shredded cheddar cheese and a few snips of fresh chives - awesome! Made several variations - choc. chips; pecans and caramel bits; fresh blueberries. all yummy. I usually make two rounds and cut each into six for a smaller scone. Will try with Greek yogurt instead of sour cream next time to save a few cals!
