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.

Egg and Cheese Puffs

Reviewed: Sep. 26, 2011
pretty tasty and versatile - can imagine subbing all kinds of breakfast meats and veggies...Great to make ahead for weekday breakfasts for the kids, just zap for a minute in the microwave and you are on your way!

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...

Greek Style Garlic Chicken Breast

Reviewed: Sep. 4, 2011
Very good flavor. Really smells like garlic which scared my kids a bit. Also cut the oil in half.

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!

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.
