Spicy Grilled Swordfish

Reviewed: May 5, 2012
This would be a five for me except I like more spice. Next time I will add red pepper flakes to the marinade. Other than that, great in every way! I used a grill pan on the grill to keep the fish from sticking. This worked great. A keeper!

Simple Grilled Lamb Chops

Reviewed: Apr. 12, 2012
Good recipe but cooking time definitely feds to be longer for the average lamb chop. Also, don't leave for more than a few hours in the marinade. Vinegar will "cook" the meat and if you leave it for too long the lamb will end up being tough. Overall a keeper.

London Broil II

Reviewed: Apr. 1, 2012
This is a great basic marinade. I switched out the ketchup for chili sauce for a bit more kick. Also doubled the quantity. Broiled it for eight minutes per side, basting each side with the marinade prior to broiling, then finished it off on the grill two minutes per side. My husband thought it was too tough but everyone else loved it. Plan to make it again but using a thinner (flank steak) cut. Also I only marinaded it for about six hours. I think overnight for dinner the next day would work great.

Reviewed: Feb. 12, 2012
Good recipe but a little bland. I upped the dijon mustard and salt and ended up with a dressing everyone loved.

Slow-Cooked Pulled Pork Shoulder

Reviewed: Feb. 11, 2012
I made a 8 lb shoulder in my largest slow cooker and it fit fine. I was worried about some of the comments re:the vinegar taste so after brining overnight, I drained off half the liquid and replaced with beer. Cooked overnight (about 14 hours) and woke up to the most delicious smell filling the house! strained the liquid into a bowl and added the meat and let cool in the fridge. OH MY GOD. The BEST BBQ I have EVER had bar none! I stored the pulled pork in the liquid in the fridge and no one least of all me could leave it alone! Served it as sandwiches with my homemade hot and sweet BBQ sauce. HEAVEN! GREAT RECIPE FOR LIFE!!!

Sopa De Lima (Mexican Lime Soup)

Reviewed: Feb. 6, 2012
I just returned from a weeklong trip to Merida in in the Yucatan from whence this recipe originates (Mayan cuisine). I ordered at either lunch or dinner at least five times. Just so good! I've made it twice following the directions exactly the first time with the second batch tasting exactly like the real thing. The only changes I made were to literally quadruple the cilantro and double the chili pepper. The soup I had in the Yucatan is definitely spicier. Thanks for this recipe! I will be making it regularly from now on!

Buche de Noel

Reviewed: Dec. 24, 2011
Just made this for the second year in a row and it turned out spectacularly again. I change nothing about the preparation. To decorate, I save some extra mousse and ice the buche with it. I cut a section and lay it at an angle rather then try to get it to stand up. Following a previous suggestion, I score the mousse with a fork to give the appearance of a log. I use red, white and green gum drops for decor. The white ones I stick on toothpicks for the mushrooms and the green ones I flatten and cut into holly leaves. Another triumph! Great recipe!

Perfect Pressure Cooker Pot Roast

Reviewed: Dec. 20, 2011
LOVED THIS!!! Made just as directed but added a can of diced tomatoes, a tbs celery seed and did half beef broth/half red wine. Took advice of others and put some corn starch into the pan after removing the roast for gravy (love my immersion blender!). Served with buttered noodles. Grandma, husband and two college age sons ate every last scrap of a 3.5 lb roast! I am not join to change a thing from the above and will definitely make again. This was my first experience using my pressure cooker for a pot roast as I have always used it only for canning. Thanks for such a great recipe!

Butternut Squash Soup

Reviewed: Oct. 30, 2011
I used four boxes of frozen squash instead of fresh and it was delicious! I thawed the frozen squash in the microwave for four minutes, stirred and added six bouillon cubes and water and microwaved for four more minutes. Then followed recipe as directed from step two. I did add a tsp of salt. Absolutely delicious! Everyone LOVED it! Will definitely make again using frozen squash.

Mama's Balsamic Vinaigrette

Reviewed: Oct. 27, 2011
Nice easy balsamic dressing recipe. I use a stronger mustard but that's just because my family loves mustard. A good choice on the gourmet side is Moutard de Meaux. Also a bit more salt. I've found that it's wise to reserve your BEST balsamic for your dressings, leaving the cheaper stuff for cooking. You really can taste the difference.

Jackie's Spinach and Apple Salad

Reviewed: Oct. 24, 2011
The only reason I gave this four starts as that the dressing was a bit bland. I added a pinch of salt and a tablespoon of dijon mustard and this took it up to a personal five stars for me. Everyone loved it! Who would think of using maple syrup but trust me it works! I also toasted the walnuts in a skillet and diced the apples. Great combination of flavors. Made a nice fall salad!

Dad's Leftover Turkey Pot Pie

Reviewed: Oct. 24, 2011
This the second turkey pot pie recipe I've tried from allrecipes and it is hands down the best. I'm stopping right here. I didn't make any changes other than using entirely frozen peas, carrots and green beans mix and it came out perfect. Everyone LOVED it. A keeper for sure!!!

Company Cauliflower

Reviewed: Oct. 16, 2011
Everyone LOVED this! I did follow the previous reviewer's advice and add just a pinch of red pepper flakes. I also increased the bouillon. I steamed the cauliflower in my Oster steamer which makes things much easier. Then just tossed it into the prepared sauté. Served it with slow cooker pot roast. Everyone LOVED it. Thanks for a great, low fat cauliflower recipe!

Easy Peach Cobbler

Reviewed: Sep. 11, 2011
Love this recipe BUT the cooking time is too short. Mine took an hour but it was worth it! I used my own canned peaches which were spiced. If I were to use store bought canned peaches I would add cinnamon and nutmeg. I will definitely make this again!

Butterscotch Bread Pudding

Reviewed: Oct. 24, 2010
Loved it! A big hit! Served it with Creme Anglaise. A definite keeper. I did halve the sugar as other reviewers advised and it was plenty sweet enough for us.

Cranberry Apple Casserole

Reviewed: Aug. 25, 2010
Can't see this as a Sudetenland dish but made a great dessert! I can my own apple pie filling and I'm always looking for ways to use it other than pies. Love this! My pie filling has cinnamon in it pus I added a bit to the topping. Also increased the topping by a half to make it more dessert appropriate. Served it at room temp as others suggested along with vanilla ice-cream. Big hit! Great recipe!
