Bow Ties with Sausage, Tomatoes and Cream

Reviewed: Jan. 1, 2006
I was going to submit this recipe, but while searching I found it was already here!! I got it from a friend of mine who got it from another friend... Perhaps it was this site. Anyways, I have made this several times and it is absolutely awesome. My recipe calls for 1/4 teaspoon instead of a half teaspoon. I find it to be just the right amount of spice. I have tried it using hot italian sausage as well, and it was also quite yummy, though I would stick with the sweet sausage. FYI: If you want to try to make a healtier version using turkey sausage, I suggest you dont. It just is not nearly as good. Also, when I make mine it doesnt look quite like the picture posted, and I dont think the picture is representative of the dish. For best results, you should toss the pasta in the pan you cooked the sauce in.

Caramel Pecan Pie

Reviewed: Jan. 1, 2006
I found this exact recipe on another website about 2 years ago. I make it frequently because it is delicious and easy. It is very sweet. The only downside to it is the unwrapping all the caramels and cost of the nuts. I always use Kraft brand caramels, though I have tried using cheaper ones a couple of times. I did not get as good a result, so I would recommend only using the Kraft. Also, I add slightly more pecans than the recipe calls for.

Creme Brulee French Toast

Reviewed: Jan. 1, 2006
I was surprised I did not like this recipe considering all the great reviews. Maybe I will try it again, but I think I did everything as directed. Mine came out semi-soggy and the caremalized part was just gummy and sticky. Overall, a big disapointment.

Hot Artichoke and Spinach Dip II

Reviewed: Jan. 1, 2006
I made this recipes slightly differently than called for and it was delicious. Instead of mayo, I used sour cream. I also added a pinch of red pepper flakes and the juice of half a lemon. Very good recipe, will be making again.

Chrissy's Sweet 'n' Sour Tomato Salad

Reviewed: Dec. 30, 2005
This is delicious. The vinaigrette is versatile and I often throw in other veggies I have on hand such as cucumbers.

White Chocolate Raspberry Cheesecake

Reviewed: May 30, 2005
I have made this recipe a dozen or so times and it is wonderful and very impressive. After reading others' comments, I wanted to make a suggestion to keep the cheesecake from browning: I always cook mine in a water bath. This gives me much better, more even results. The only complaint I have with the water bath method is that one time the springform pan wasnt sealed good enough with the tinfoil I placed around it and the cheesecake was a soggy mess. Also, I use a regular graham cracker crust instead because it is easier than separating the oreos. I give it 5 stars for taste, but only rate it a 4 because it is expensive and tedious to make.

Island Chicken with Fruit Salsa

Reviewed: Dec. 29, 2004
This recipe is delicious. I have made it four or five times. I substitute tequila for the rum. The fresh cilantro adds a fabulous flavor to this dish. Thank you for a great recipe.

Beef Tenderloin With Roasted Shallots

Reviewed: Dec. 29, 2004
DELICIOUS! Don't skimp on the cut of meat because the texture and flavor of the meat cannot be saved by any amount of sauce. The sauce was by the way, delicious. Instead of port I used cabernet. A tip for all who are looking for a good red cooking wine: I use Georges Duboef cabernet which is under $6 a bottle. It is far better than cheap port or grocery store cooking wines.

Rich Tiramisu

Reviewed: Dec. 29, 2004
This recipe was quite easy to prepare, but not as good as tiramisu in a restaurant. I agree with other reviewers that it was too runny and the alchohol overpowered the dish. The flavor masked the delicacy of the mascarpone.

Mushroom Chicken Piccata

Reviewed: Dec. 29, 2004
I tried this recipe for the first time about a year ago and have since made it 5 or 6 times. This is incredibly easy and also fairly quick. Chicken picatta NEEDS capers and added them generously. Someone else wrote this dish was bland and I must disagree! I remove the chicken and cover it with foil and add a little extra wine, lemon, and broth to the pan and let it reduce. Then I toss trenette pasta with it and serve the chicken over the pasta.

Italian Bread I

Reviewed: Feb. 5, 2002
This is disgusting. The bread was way to thick and had a dull flavor to it. The crust was incredibly hard and it was grainy in texture. Had one peice and threw out the whole loaf. Waste of good herbs
