Quiche Lorraine II

Reviewed: Aug. 10, 2008
Some quiche recipes require prebaking the pie crust and other recipes don't mention it. I always prebake the crust to prevent sogginess. This was very good, but I did add additional ham as we were having this for dinner. I also ended up with a lot of extra egg batter, so I would recommend using only 3 eggs and 1.5 cups milk. I did find this to be a little too salty (maybe my ham?) so I'd omit it and salt at the table.

Banana Crumb Muffins

Reviewed: Jul. 20, 2008
Very good. Next time I will use nutmeg in the topping and skip the cinnamon. Walnuts would make a nice addition, but then the kids won't help me eat them.

Fettuccini with Mushroom, Ham and Rose Sauce

Reviewed: Jul. 20, 2008
I'm sure this would have been fabulous with the heavy cream, but I opted for fat free half and half. My only complaint was that I really couldn't taste the ham in this. If I make this again, I'll definitely use Italian sausage instead.

Rum Cranberry Applesauce Bundt Cake

Reviewed: Jun. 29, 2008
Rum, cinnamon, craisins, applesauce, caramel - toooo many competing flavors. Cake was moist, but I did not care for the glaze at all. It did not go well with the cake, and it was thin and sugary. I would have preferered a traditional sugar and rum syrup brushed onto the cake.

Middle Eastern Rice with Black Beans and Chickpeas

Reviewed: Jun. 28, 2008
I thought this was a little bland, despite all the spices. I would cut the beans in half, first so I could taste those spices, and second because this receipe made sooo much, we were eating this for days!

Lime Chicken and Mushroom Pasta

Reviewed: May 26, 2008
Quick and tasty. I did saute with garlic as so many reviewers had suggested. I also seasoned the chicken with some chipotle pepper seasoning blend that I really wasn't sure what else to do with. I did serve over pasta, but I would skip that if I made this again - the pasta just soaked up the liquid and diluted the flavors.

Pasta Chickpea Salad

Reviewed: May 26, 2008
I had planned to add cherry tomatoes to this salad but forgot to pick some up when grocery shopping. The tomatoes would have improved the appearance and may have helped moisten this up some. I kept adding olive oil, and finally some more red wine vinegar, but still this salad was very dry. Tastewise it was good, and I always like recipes where I'm able to use herbs from my garden.

Country Rib Delight

Reviewed: May 26, 2008
I liked this but it was a little too sweet. If I made this again I would try adding dry mustard and maybe some Worcestershire to balance out some of that sugar.

Grilled Halibut with Cilantro Garlic Butter

Reviewed: May 18, 2008
Very good. I marinated fish for 6-7 hrs in garlic,olive oil cilantro and lime juice, then seared in olive oil, and added a lid to finish cooking. After removing the fish to a plate, I dumped the marinade into the fry pan, cooked for a few minutes with some additional lime juice, then stirred in the butter until melted. Fresh cilantro is a must in this recipe.

Ginger Glazed Mahi Mahi

Reviewed: Apr. 27, 2008
Great on frozen fish, as it totally obscures the taste of the fish. I think this could be improved by cutting back a little on the balsamic vinegar and increasing the soy sauce.

Picadillo

Reviewed: Apr. 23, 2008
Always looking for something to do with ground beef that involves multiple veggies. This was really good; the combination of spices was very pleasant without adding tons of heat. I could not find chorizo, so I subbed Italian sausage, but I didn't think the Italian sausage blended in well with the other ingredients. Next time I'll skip the sausage altogether.

White Russian Brownies

Reviewed: Apr. 23, 2008
I used the full 16 oz of cream cheese, but subbed milk for the vodka. The cream cheese layer was just okay, but the brownie layer really was lacking in flavor. Brushing the top with the kahlua helped a these a lot, but 4 of 5 in my household gave these brownies a thumbs down.

Pasta with Sweet Peas

Nothing earth shattering, but a nice way to liven up the same old, same old.

Smothered Pork Chops

Reviewed: Apr. 23, 2008
My gravy was beautiful in appearance but had little flavor. This could easily be corrected by seasoning the chops with your favorite herbs before browning and doubling up on the onion.

Slow Cooker Ham

Reviewed: Apr. 12, 2008
Maybe this would have been okay if I'd only cooked this 4 hrs, but after 8 hrs, this looked like beef, tasted slightly burned and was not enjoyable. I'll stick to the oven for baking ham.

Cream Cheese Coffee Cake

Reviewed: Apr. 12, 2008
My very picky daughter loved this but I thought it had several problems. The baking time was way off - I really don't know how long I ended up cooking it, and it still was a little underdone. The cake was dense and heavy, just a touch shy of gummy. The filling was really tart, and, for a second, I thought I forgot to add the confectioners sugar. The only sweetness to this cake came from the topping.

Slow-Cooked Country Ribs in Gravy

Reviewed: Mar. 23, 2008
I liked this cooking method for country style pork ribs. The fat separated from the meat after a few hours and was easy to remove from the pot. The sauce however was a bit vinegary and needed some additional spice.

Paprika Pork Roast

Reviewed: Mar. 16, 2008
My roast came out a little dry even though I used the convection bake setting on my oven and reduced the heat by 25 degrees. Maybe I sliced the onion too thin, but the slices just cooked to a charred paper consistency and added nothing to the meat's flavor. I wasn't sure I liked this combination of flavors - the ginger and paprika seemed at odds.

Cheesy Fish Fillets with Spinach

Reviewed: Jan. 20, 2008
There's something about fish and cheese that says high school cafeteria, but I gave it a try with swiss. I used fresh baby spinach in place of the frozen spinach and used rockfish from my freezer. I thought the sauce was especially good, and it was terrific with the spinach. I'm still not sure I loved the sauce with the fish. However, the sauce would be great for masking the taste of a less palatable fish.

Apple Chicken Stew

Reviewed: Jan. 13, 2008
Adding a cup of broth really tempered the sweetness of this stew, but made it entirely too liquidy. Next time I would use a cup and a half of liquid, using half broth and half cider. Overall, this was better than I had expected.
