Spring Risotto

Reviewed: Mar. 30, 2001
This is not the fastest of all side dishes, but the medley of flavors is wonderful in this recipe. As all other risotto recipes I've tried, it takes a lot of attention and preparation. However, if you pre-chop everything and have it all ready to go, assembly is not difficult. I used orange pepper instead of red and vegatable boullion in cubes mixed with water, and it turned out nicely. A nice, springy dish... I fixed it with Robust Baked Garlic Chicken and it went together very well.

Robust Garlic Baked Chicken

Reviewed: Mar. 30, 2001
This recipe is wonderful, and as easy as baking a chicken normally is. It is nice, due to the nice medley of fresh herbs and lemon. One note, I didn't add all the butter mixture to the chicken, as it was quite a lot. Half of the mixture (with the full amount of herbs, just half the butter) works wonderfully as well. Or make the full batch, and use the rest of the herb butter for bread, etc. Additionally, I did not have kitchen twine, and so used dental floss (clean, of course!) and it worked perfectly! Not the quickest of recipes, it is a crowd pleaser.

Spinach Quiche

Reviewed: Mar. 25, 2001
This quiche is really easy to make, although a little time consuming. I really liked that it make more than one quiche, so I could freeze the extra one for later use. I made this recipe for my co-workers, and I received nothing but compliments. One suggestion I have is to use more eggs, as I found only 4 eggs does not fill up two pie crusts. I would suggest 6 or 7 eggs total. Otherwise, I also like this recipe since it is easy to add or subtract ingredients as well. I added 1/2 lb cooked bacon to the recipe and it made for a nice addition. Perhaps the best part... the finished product looks impressive, but it's very easy!

Baked Brunch Omelet

Reviewed: Feb. 12, 2001
I made this for breakfast when some friends were over. I used bacon instead of sausage and I didn't have near the amount of cheddar cheese to put in it. ( I probably put 1/2 cup in, shredded very fine.) However, it turned out wondeful none the less! I received many complements... and we almost didn't have enough, so many people went back for seconds! I recommend this highly...

Garlic Crab Artichoke Dip

Reviewed: Jan. 4, 2001
This dip is awesome! I had so many complements. I followed the advice of another reviewer and substitued light cream cheese for the mayonaise. I also used onion-mushroom soup instead of the garlic mushroom, and it turned out just fine. Seemed to be a crowd pleaser!

This sauce tastes just like the sauce in Chinese restaraunts! It's amazingly easy and it was a big hit when I served with with spring rolls. Nobody knew it was homemade until I told them!
