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.

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.

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.

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!

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!

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.

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.

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

Awesome Sausage, Apple and Cranberry Stuffing

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.

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.

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.

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...

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...

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.

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.

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.
