Asparagus and Parmesan Tart

Reviewed: Dec. 27, 2010
I made this tart with only one minor change - lemon juice instead of lemon peel (I was out of any kind of fresh citrus.). Overall, I think this is very tasty and easy to make. The carmelized onions really are the star of the show, so if you don't care for them this isn't for you. The custard bakes up with a very nice consistancy, though I did pop the broiler on for a minute to get a little color on it. It comes out very pale even when set. I also added a little salt to th egg/sour cream mixture since there was no added salt called for in the recipe. I think I would also grind on some black pepper over the asparagus and onions next time. Just a little. All of that being said, this was a really nice, fast, meatless meal with a salad on the side.

Baked Dijon Salmon

Reviewed: Mar. 31, 2010
I thought there was nothing new that could be done to salmon that I hadn't eaten, but this was truly scrumptious! The salmon came out perfectly cooked, not cloyingly sweet like honey-mustard things tend to and not overly mustardy, either. Perfect balance of flavors! I made this yesterday for family visiting from out of town as an impromptu lunch during Passover. Obviously, I made at least one substitution - I traded out the bread crumbs for matzoh that I processed along with the pecans. I did toast the pecans a little bit, also. The other oh-so-slight modification I made was to add about a tablespoon of chopped garlic to the matzoh/pecan/parsley mix. I got raves from my guests who were oh-so-impressed with my extraordinary cooking abilities! lol Of course, I told them that it wasn't that I'm a good cook, it's that I found an awesome recipe!

Sloppy Joes I

Reviewed: Jul. 26, 2008
I tried the canned stuff a while back hoping to recapture a favored flavor from my childhood. Unfortunately, the canned stuff was nasty! I found this recipe and was scared of the Chicken Gumbo soup in it, but decided to trust the reviews. I made it exactly as written with one substitution (a can of "eating right" not condensed chicken gumbo as my store didn't carry the usual condensed version - I decreased the water to make up for this sub) and it was AWESOME! My 3 yr old stepbaby LOVED it - ate every single crumb - and he never, ever eats his dinner no matter how good it is! My husband and I loved it, too. A really nice kid-friendly recipe!

Chocolate Cream Passover Torte

Reviewed: Jan. 26, 2007
I'm reviewing this before Pesach this year based on making it Pesach last year (I'm a little slow!). I agree with the poster who said that this might be the best Passover desert EVER. It's really delicious and not just "delicious for Passover". I also experienced issues with the cake sticking. Frankly, I kind of stuck it all back together and pasted it together with the whipped cream. Next time I'll go heavier on greasing my parchment. It was a bit of work, but worth it! A very nice cake to bring to someone else's seder! :)

Mary's Roasted Red Pepper Dip

Reviewed: Jan. 26, 2007
I'm ashamed of how long it's taken me to review this, considering how often I make the recipe. This is perfection in hot-dip form. EVERYONE asks me for the recipe when I serve this at parties (and yes, I do give credit!). The changes I make to the recipe are minimal. I up the onion to 2 tbs, I up the garlic to 2 cloves. I decrease the mustard to 1 tbs (I find it makes the dip a little too sharp with 2 tbs) and I add a big dash of hot sauce. Not a big difference, in the grand scheme of things. My Mother-in-Law called me from the grocery store recently because she was having difficulty finding the roasted red peppers. If you do, as well, they're usually located by either the olives and pickles or they're located by the "fancy" canned goods (like marinated mushrooms, etc), depending on the store. The only other note is that I can only find a 12oz jar of the roasted red peppers. I usually use most of it (scraping off any charred skin left on the peppers) and just snack on any leftovers while waiting for the dip to come out of the oven. :D
