Apple Enchilada Dessert

Reviewed: Jan. 29, 2012
Very good. I used 6 inch flour tortillas -- which was plenty big for a serving size. Also used homemade apple pie filling. Very good - a little runny.

Chicken Breasts Stuffed with Perfection

Reviewed: Jan. 23, 2012
These were very good, but I think for all the prep and fiddling with rolling up the chicken, I would rather just have a sauce with all the ingredients. Maybe I feel that way because mine were not pretty, I had to use three toothpicks in each roll to keep them closed...Or maybe I will do what some others have done and just cut a pocket and shoved the stuffing in that way...

Chicken Piccata with Artichoke Hearts

Reviewed: Jan. 23, 2012
Delicious - I used shallots instead of onion and frozen artichokes because that is what I had. My sauce did not benefit from the artichoke liquid, therefore, but was good all the same. I also did not add the butter at the end and found the sauce plenty rich without it.

Chicken Marsala

Reviewed: Jan. 23, 2012
Very good. I used "Sweet" marsala because that is what I had on hand. Might try the dry next time.

Easy Baked Chicken Cordon Bleu

Reviewed: Jan. 19, 2012
Very good and simple. Way too much butter, however, I ended up tossing about half of it out. Takes practice to get the chicken rolled neatly - mine definitely did not look like the picture, but they tasted good.

Eastern North Carolina Barbeque Sauce

Reviewed: Jan. 16, 2012
I toned down the cayenne, red pepper and hot sauce, since we don't care for it that spicy. Still was a bit on the vinegary side. Might try it with white vinegar next time.

Sweet Restaurant Slaw

Reviewed: Jan. 16, 2012
good base recipe. I made it very low fat by using 0% Greek yogurt instead of Miracle whip/mayo and only 1 TBSP of oil. Also, I am not a fan of super sweet coleslaw, so I only used 1/4 cup of sugar and that was plenty for our tastes.

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.

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
