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!

Shrimp Stir-Fry

Reviewed: May 5, 2011
Pretty good recipe for a straightforward stir-fry - certainly would be adaptable for chicken or pork or whatever. Might try to jazz up a bit more with more garlic and ginger next time as it was pretty tame - but it was easy. I used chicken broth instead of water and it was not too salty even with the soy sauce, so it may have been even more bland without the broth...

Bangers and Mash

Reviewed: Mar. 19, 2011
pretty good - used irish bangers and made on St. Patty's day - 4 out of 5 family members ate it and enjoyed. Probably will make again...

Parmesan Fondue

Reviewed: Feb. 22, 2011
Very good, but very mild. That was what we wanted since we had lots of kids - if it was all adults, I would have added a bit of garlic and italian seasoning to kick it up a bit. Mini roasted potatoes and tortellini were a hit to dip. Thickens up quite a bit in the fondue pot, keep stirring!

Ghirardelli® Ultimate Chocolate Fondue

Reviewed: Feb. 22, 2011
How can you go too far wrong with chocolate fondue? Per other reviews, I used a bit less milk and I used one bag of semi-sweet chips (12 oz) instead of the bars. Verrry chocolately, but that is the point. bananas and mini cream puffs were the favorite dippers.

Orange Soy Pork Loin

Reviewed: Jan. 29, 2011
very good recipe. Would add a bit more garlic next time and maybe season the pork before pouring the sauce over top. I used thick boneless pork chops. Served with rice and broccoli.

Shoyu Chicken

Reviewed: Dec. 29, 2010
This was pretty good - I used just a few shakes of the cayenne and paprika and left out the optional red pepper, because we are not fans of spicy. Next time I would leave out the oregano too, I don't think it blended well with the salty sweet asian flavors of soy, ginger and sugar.

Peanut Butter Cup Cookies

Reviewed: Dec. 22, 2010
I totally cheated and used a bag of peanut butter cookie mix - made as directed then shaped into balls and followed the rest of the recipe. Yummy! Just watch the cookies closely, the will look they are not quite done, but if you leave them a minute longer, they will be too dark on the edges.

Ghirardelli® Triple Chocolate Truffle Cake

Reviewed: Dec. 19, 2010
decadent and delicious, but soooo rich! Really you can get 16 servings out of this cake, it is like eating a giant truffle. Decorated with raspberries, but I am thinking crushed candy cane may also be fun for the holidays. My springform pan worked well.

Mint Chocolate Chip Cookies

Reviewed: Dec. 17, 2010
Very good cookie - I used a "Bittersweet" choc. chip instead of semi-sweet just because we prefer, but that chip was a bit bigger than the regular chips so it created big chocolatey blobs throughout the cookies - just didn't look as pretty. Next time I will use a chip more uniform in size to the creme de menthe baking chip.

Layered Greek Dip

Reviewed: Nov. 4, 2010
Delicious - served at Bunco and it got rave reviews from the girls. I used powdered garlic as I was a little nervous about people getting a chunck of raw garlic. I think you could lose the green onions - be sure to use good quality feta, the real stuff is becoming more available. Goat cheese would work well also.

Baked Teriyaki Chicken

Reviewed: Oct. 13, 2010
Very good and simple, double the sauce - could try with turkey breast or pork chops and would probably be good as well. Served with stirfry frozen veggies from Costco (surprisingly good, cook up crispy not mushy!) and rice for a quick easy weeknight supper.

Cavatelli and Broccoli

Reviewed: Oct. 11, 2010
Great recipe, pretty much right off the back of the Celantano cavatelli bag! Except they called for only 12 oz. of cavatelli and 2 bunches of broccoli, but I would say that Linda probably has it right - with more pasta and broccoli, it would be a little less oily, which was my only complaint about Celantano's recipe. I also think it would be good with a little pasta water thrown in to diffuse the oil. Salt is key, don't skimp.

Banana Oat Muffins

Reviewed: Oct. 5, 2010
OK, Yum! Even with "healthy" changes (applesauce instead of oil, half white whole wheat flour, half AP flour) these were delish. Added some leftover butterscotch morsels I had on hand and they made them awesome. Actually made more than 12 muffins for me - I had to put some leftover batter in a mini loaf pan.

Ham and Cheese Bowties

Reviewed: Oct. 5, 2010
Good basic recipe, I doubled so we would have leftovers. Personally, I like my cheese with a little more zip, so I would go for sharp or extra sharp and maybe a little more mustard.

Easy Batter Fruit Cobbler

Reviewed: Aug. 31, 2010
Very simple and pretty good. Just two thoughts - I agree with those that thought there was a bit much butter, probably 3 TBSP. is plenty, maybe even 2 would be OK. Also, the center got a bit soggy, but I had a bunch of peaches to use up, so I probably put in a few more than called for - so use caution if you want to increase the fruit. That said, the crusty bits of the cake that puffed around the edges of the pan are yummy, I have been stealing them! ..probably will try again with these tweaks.

Cindy's Awesome Clam Chowder

Reviewed: Aug. 28, 2010
Delicious, especially considering how easy. Used Yukon Gold potatoes, and cut back to 3 cups of dairy (1 cup half and half, 2 cups whole milk, not sure I saved many calories...) Used one pack of leek soup mix, that seemed to be enough, and did not need the salt that was called for when you add the potatoes and carrots.

Chinese Chicken Fried Rice II

Reviewed: Aug. 26, 2010
Super easy meal to use up leftover rice and chicken! I bet it would freeze well, too. I just scrambled the egg and set aside and didn't bother with cutting into shreds. Per other reviews, I left out the pepper and added a splash of sesame oil with the veg. oil. Also shredded the onion (picky kids hate to find pieces of onion in their dinner) I added 2 cloves of garlic, minced with the onion and grated half of a large carrot. Threw in some frozen peas and voila! Easy one pot meal.

Blueberry Pound Cake

Reviewed: Aug. 24, 2010
Delicious! I used a few more berries than the recipe called for because they needed to be used up - and they were not the sweetest berries (thats why I made the cake and didn't just eat them as is!) but the cake was still Yummy. Anyway, delicious batter - could have eaten that with a spoon! May try with peaches or even chocolate chips for something new!

Banana Cake II

Reviewed: Jun. 10, 2010
Very good - I added a little more banana than it caled for just to use up my overripe bananas. Also subbed 1/2 cup applesauce for that amount of butter. Chopped up a couple chocolate bars and stirred them in, too.
