Penne with Chicken and Asparagus

Reviewed: Feb. 20, 2011
Made this for a dinner party for 4, and there were almost no leftovers. Everyone was thrilled as to how healthy it was. I used whole wheat penne and added the mushrooms and sun-dried tomatoes as suggested by others. Red pepper flakes added a nice subtle kick. I will be making this again with what I have available - whole wheat rotelle and broccoli rabe. A definite one for the rotation.

Awesome Sausage, Apple and Cranberry Stuffing

Reviewed: Nov. 26, 2010
WOW, I've never been a stuffing person - till now. Last night was my first full Thanksgiving dinner where my family and my fiance's met for the first time at our home. A really big deal so trying this new recipe along with other new dishes was risky. I used the JD Sage Sausage (and used a bit less sage in case of overload), bagged toasted bread cubes and cornbread stuffing as suggested by others, the liver that came with my turkey, and a carton of chicken stock since I was not stuffing my bird. Covered for 45 mins at 350 then uncovered for 15. Was still very watery and had no form so I put it back in multiple times till I reached the desired consistency. Everyone remarked about how good this tasted. I only wish I made more. After leftovers were divided up, I had only a serving left for myself.

Smothered Filet Mignon

Reviewed: Mar. 7, 2009
I made this for dinner last night. After a few bites, my boyfriend muted the TV and said to me, "Baby, this is outstanding. It's so tender. It tastes just like the ones in the restaurant. How did you do that?" After eating his, he finished mine. I used 1-inch filets and left them out to marinate. I pierced each sides with a fork a few times to help the flavors soak in. I then broiled them 3-4 inches from the heat source, 7 minutes per side. I put the topping on during the last 2 minutes. Served them sliced over a romaine salad with sliced red onions, pine nuts, croutons, and blue cheese with balsamic dressing. Also added the grilled shrimp scampi from this site. Mmmm.

Chicken Satay

Reviewed: Feb. 2, 2009
Just made these for my Super Bowl party. Marinated them for about 15 hours then cooked on a stovetop grill. Made the Thai-Style Peanut Sauce with Honey for a great combination. Very tasty and flavorful even without the sauce.

Thai-Style Peanut Sauce with Honey

Reviewed: Feb. 1, 2009
Used this to accompany the chicken satay recipe on this site. The ginger gave it a really nice kick.

Grilled Shrimp Scampi

Reviewed: Feb. 1, 2009
Made these for a Super Bowl party, and they were a real hit. My friends helping me skewer kept commenting on how good it smelled and asked for the recipe.

Savory Garlic Marinated Steaks

Reviewed: Jan. 9, 2009
I rate my dishes not just by my own taste but by the reactions of those I cook for. I made four servings (2 1-inch rib eyes about 0.8 lb each) last night so that my boyfriend and I would have leftovers for lunch. As we ate, I saw him eyeing my plate. As soon as he finished his, he reached over, grabbed the half I left for lunch, and finished that too. Lunch, dinner gone. How I prepared it: marinated overnight, no cayenne or liquid smoke, broiled for 5 minutes each side for medium. A definite keeper - the steak and the bf! :)

Pork Chops Stuffed with Smoked Gouda and Bacon

Reviewed: Jan. 6, 2009
I just made this last night for my boyfriend, and he loved it. At the end of the meal, he said, "That was really good. It was freakin' delicious. Are you going to finish that?" and finished the last morsel on my plate. It will become part of our rotation. To make it more low-fat, I used turkey bacon. Since I don't have a grill, I pan seared it over high heat in the pan with the bacon grease to give it some color. I then broiled it about 3 inches from the flame for about 4 minutes per side. The market didn't have the 2 1/4 inch chops I used 1 inch boneless loins. Also, I didn't have toothpicks, and it was fine. Having the filling ooze out of the chops was a nice visual when I served them. These were served with brown rice and a spring mix salad with pine nuts and balsamic vinagrette. Yummy!

Honey Ginger Shrimp

Reviewed: Mar. 30, 2008
I first made this for my boyfriend in November. He has since asked for "that shrimp dish that I like" multiple times. I have added more honey and cut down on the pepper because it is way too spicy. When I mix the pepper with the ginger in the pan, my eyes water and my boyfriend starts sneezing. It's a strange thing, but the dish is really delicious.

Rosemary Roasted Turkey

Reviewed: Nov. 28, 2003
This is the first recipe I've rated. I just wanted to say how great it iturned out. It was my first turkey. The color was beautiful and the taste was savory. We brined it overnight first and followed the recipe. We also turned the turkey over toward the end of the cooking time. The gravy was also really good. We just mixed soy sauce, oyster sauce, and cornstarch with the turkey drippings (after getting rid of excess oil). Yummy!
