Smashed Cauliflower

Reviewed: Feb. 5, 2008
Yum! I've made this several times before but couldn't quite figure out what was missing. I think cooking the cauliflower in chicken broth is key...I used chicken broth with roasted garlic and added a little extra garlic. I pureed the cauliflower in my food processor. I only used a little bit of the broth as I didn't want them to be too runny.

Personal Portobello Pizza

Reviewed: Mar. 20, 2009
I love portobello pizzas! They are so good and give me a healthy alternative to satisfy my pizza cravings! I cook the mushroom for 10 minutes at 400 degrees and then add the topping and cook for another 10 minutes. Add whatever your favorite toppings are. I added cooked broccoli the other day just for some extra veggie. Delicious. Update: After reading the reviews, a few people mentioned how watery the mushroom was. A couple suggestions...DO NOT rinse your mushroom off under running water, mushrooms are very absorbent and will just soak up all that water. Just take a cloth or paper towel and brush the dirt off the mushroom. Also, try increasing the oven temp a little bit and cook the mushroom the first time around just a little longer to dry it out more. The mushroom will always be a little watery, but hopefully with those tips it won't be as bad as some have posted.

Ham and Creamy Potato Scallops

Reviewed: Dec. 27, 2007
This was good...I made some changes though. I didn't boil the potatoes first, just cooked for about an hour and a half at 325. I also used milk instead of chicken broth. Added cheddar cheese to the milk mixture to make more of a cheese sauce. Mixed potatoes and cheese sauce/ham in a big metal bowl first, then transferred to a baking dish, otherwise it's way too hard to mix everything together. I added some chopped scallions to the top when it came out of the oven. Served peas on the side however they would have been really good mixed in to the casserole. Great recipe for a cold rainy night.

Spinach Marie

Reviewed: May 11, 2009
This is a good recipe. But honestly, I find all the different steps tedious and unnecessary. Just make a roux with the butter and flour, then add the milk and let thicken, then add the onion and cheese and lastly the spinach. Then pour into a casserole. It just seemed more time consuming than it should have been and it turned out to be just like other creamed spinach recipes I've made before. The taste is good (whoa is there a lot of cheese!) though.

Beef Fajita Marinade

Reviewed: Jan. 10, 2008
This was good but needed some tweaking. It didn't make nearly enough for 1 1/2 pounds of meat so I added a couple tablespoons of extra virgin olive oil and about a teaspoon of worcestershire and also threw in a little extra tequila and lime juice.

Minestrone Soup

Reviewed: Dec. 10, 2010
In an attempt to get some veggies into my 3 and 1 year old, I decided to make this. I didn't think I'd be a big fan but I loved it! Great on a cold winter day. I changed just a few things: used chicken stock, not vegetable; no potatoes; all spinach, no swiss chard; dried basil and canned tomatoes w/ seasonings. I think all these changes are minor according to our tastes but the general outcome is still the same and delicious!

Summer Beer II

Reviewed: Jun. 8, 2006
I was skeptical about mixing the beer and vodka, but read the reviews and decided I had to try this. Made a double batch for our memorial day picnic and it was gone in the first hour! Will definitely keep this on hand for a quick summer time drink!

Zucchini and Onion Pancake

Reviewed: Jul. 24, 2008
These are great! Although I must admit that I did throw in a few extra ingredients, cause I was afraid it might be a little bland. So I threw in some crushed red pepper, garlic salt and parmesan cheese. They were so good and I even burnt the 2nd batch a little bit and they were really good burnt!! A good tip for draining all the water from the zucchini is to wrap it in a tea towel and wring the towel.

BBQ Chicken Pizza from Pillsbury® Artisan Pizza Crust

Reviewed: Sep. 15, 2012
Yum! A nice change from regular old pizza. I used a rotisserie chicken from the grocery store so the prep was super easy. The red onion makes it though and I will probably add a little more next time! I may even consider carmelizing the onions if I have time, I think that would be fantastic.

Steak, Onion, and Pepper Fajitas

Reviewed: May 18, 2010
The peppers and onions make this dish. I was a little leary of all that liquid smoke so I only added about 2 tsp. maybe a little more. As others did, I cut the oil way down. Didn't use the tequila b/c I didn't have any. Added fresh minced garlic to the marinade.

Detroit Hot Honey Wings

Reviewed: May 2, 2008
These are really good, although I think I could do with less butter in the sauce. I will probably halve it next time. But overall, very tasty, love the combination of sweet and spicy.

I can't believe I made these and they turned out perfect! I always mess up anything that remotely resembles baking and thought for sure these would be no different. BUT they turned out perfect! I'll be making these all the time!

Pretty Ham Pinwheels

Reviewed: Feb. 6, 2009
Made these for our superbowl party and they didn't go over that well. The title is decieving I think as you don't really taste the ham at all. Curry is a very strong flavor so they should be called something like Curry Ham Pinwheels or something of the sort. I would rather pair these up with chicken or turkey rather than ham. The apples added a nice sweetness. They were different, I ate a couple, but could never eat more than that. They are good though if you really like curry flavors.

Skillet Green Beans

Garlic-Herb Roast Pork

Reviewed: Mar. 21, 2011
I made this with a pork tenderloin and it was delicious. I actually marinated the pork in this mixture (used dried herbs) for about 4 hours. This baking method produced the juiciest pork ever! I had to cook it at 300 degrees for about 35 minutes to get it up to 150.

This is pretty darn good. So easy to prepare for a quick throw together week night dinner that resembles the flavors of thanksgiving! I would serve it with sweet potato fries and green beans next time

Dad's Excellent Scallops

Reviewed: Jun. 6, 2006
These were excellent and really easy to make. Forgot to soak the toothpicks so the ends burned to a crisp on the grill but other than that, everything was perfect. I served them with horseradish sauce kind of following the idea of shrimp lejon and it was surprisingly good!

Spinach Salad with Pistachio Chicken

Reviewed: Apr. 10, 2012
I'm giving this 4 stars because while the salad was really good, I don't think the pistachio chicken lent a ton of flavor. The pistachios seemed to get lost and burnt a little. I even pounded my chicken out thin before cooking. I like someone elses idea of simply toasting the pistachios and sprinkling them on the salad separately. I made my own balsamic dressing as well.
