Dill, Feta and Garlic Cream Cheese Spread

Reviewed: Jun. 17, 2009
I made this for my sister's housewarming party, with about 30 guests, and everyone went nuts for it! I served it with crostini (baguettes that I had sliced and dried in the oven), but I also had some on top of a hamburger, and that was awesome. I made it the day before, and didn't think it was overwhelmingly garlicky. Thanks for the recipe!

Frozen Sherbet Dessert

Reviewed: May 26, 2009
I thought this was tasty and easy. I couldn't find pineapple sherbet. In fact, the store I went to didn't have any sherbet, so I used mango sorbet and strawberry sorbet from Haggendasz. I put the bananas in the mango sorbet and the raspberries in the strawberry sorbet, and then I layered the two in juice glasses and refroze them. I took them to my parents' for mothers day and set them out while we ate lunch. Then I upturned them on plates, and they made cute little layered cylinders. My mom loved them, and my dad was happy that he could eat them, since he can't have gluten. A quick and impressive dessert! Thanks!

Quick and Easy Home Fries

Reviewed: Apr. 26, 2009
Recently I've started adding some quartered Brussels sprouts when I make these potatoes. Super good! (If you like Brussels sprouts.) Some of the leaves tend to separate and get all crispy in the skillet. Make yourself a nice pile of potatoes and Brussels, then top it with an over easy egg, and mmmm.... you're in heaven.

Catfish Gumbo

Reviewed: Mar. 23, 2009
This actually turned out better than I expected. Here's what I did: Sauteed veggies in oil, then added a bit of flour and cooked until it was starting to brown. Then I added the broth (which I had premixed). I didn't add okra, but used some carrots and yellow squash instead. I also added dried basil. And finally, I threw in about a quarter cup of rice with the catfish. It is delicious and the perfect consistency. I don't know how it would thicken up if no flour was added.

Lemon Chicken Salad

Reviewed: Mar. 17, 2009
This is listed as a gluten free main course, and I would just like to say that Miracle Whip is not gluten free. Sub regular mayo if you would like this to be gluten free. *CORRECTION!* The last time I bought Miracle Whip, all the ingredients listed were gluten free! I think they changed their recipe!

Cedarwood

Reviewed: Mar. 14, 2009
Yummy! Except my ginger ale exploded all over the kitchen, because I guess it got shaken up on the way home. I had to add extra vodka just because of that. ;)

Asparagus and Mushroom Frittata

Reviewed: Mar. 13, 2009
This was really good. However, you need to season it very well with salt and pepper, otherwise it's a little bland. I used dried time and fresh parsley, plus an aged artisan cheese that I had on hand instead of mozz/parm. I just sauteed the asparagus and mushrooms together until they were tender - much less than 15 minutes.

Corn Relish I

Reviewed: Mar. 7, 2009
I love this stuff, but then again, I pretty much love anything that's soaked in vinegar. This was fabulous with some barbecued ribs, roasted potatoes and coleslaw. I didn't can it, as it made a small amount and I think it will keep well in the fridge. This would probably be a great candidate for adding some jalapenos or cayenne as well.

Apple Tuna Sandwiches

Reviewed: Feb. 22, 2009
This is great stuff! I love the crunch of the celery and the nuts. I used regular mayo and pecans instead of walnuts. Had it on rye bread, which is a really good combo.

Creamy Shrimp and Corn Soup

Reviewed: Feb. 13, 2009
This is pretty good. It's definite comfort food. I left out the onions and butter and just sauteed a large clove of garlic in canola oil before adding everything else. My shrimp were already cooked, so I added them at the end. Even if they had been uncooked, I still would have added them towards the end, since adding them at the beginning would surely have overcooked them. Crush the dried rosemary in your hand before adding - it keeps you from having long pieces of rosemary in the soup.

Mocha Icing

Reviewed: Jan. 23, 2009
This icing is delicious! I wanted a glaze for a chocolate bundt cake, and the consistency of this was perfect. If you want more traditional spreadable frosting, you may need to add more powdered sugar. It may sound weird, but I had some coffee left over after brewing, so I poured myself a cup and stirred in a spoonful of the extra icing. *cringe* Soooo bad for me but sooo good!

Chicken and Mandarin Oranges

Reviewed: Jan. 19, 2009
Well, I completely changed this up, so I'm not really offering a review - more of a suggestion, I guess. I dredged my chicken pieces (small chunks) in flour seasoned with the ginger, s & p, and cayenne, then sauteed them with vegetables until they were nearly cooked through. When you add your liquid at this point (the mandarin juice), you don't need to worry about cornstarch, because the flour on the chicken will thicken the sauce. I even needed to add soy sauce (partly for flavor) and a bit of chicken broth to mine. The seasoned flour helps flavor the chicken and keeps it moist, too.

Elegant Orzo with Wilted Spinach and Pine Nuts

Reviewed: Jan. 17, 2009
This is really good. I had it with steak au poivre, and it was a great combo. I used walnuts in place of the pine nuts, as that is what I had. I also don't think the spinach needs to be cooked for five minutes. One to two minutes was enough for me, and I didn't even cover the pan. Plus, the hot orzo helps to wilt it even more. Overall, very good and quick.

Boscobel Beach Ginger Cake

Reviewed: Jan. 16, 2009
This cake is delicious! This is the first cake I've made in my new bundt pan, and it came out beautifully. I used a little less than the amount of fresh ginger called for. I didn't think the cake was 'spicy' or overpowering at all, and I did not add any icing to it. I will definitely make it again, probably adding some nuts. Golden raisins might be nice in this as well.

Mini Pumpkin Butterscotch Muffins

Reviewed: Jan. 10, 2009
These are pretty darn awesome. I left out the ginger because I didn't have any. They are super moist and buttery. Honestly, I'm not sure when I will ever make them again, because they are soooo fatty, but they taste delicious!

Blueberry Pumpkin Muffins

Reviewed: Jan. 4, 2009
These are really good. I underbaked mine a bit by accident, since my oven usually runs hot. So next time I'll go the full 20 minutes instead of 17 min. My 2 1/2 yr old nephew loved these! I felt good knowing that they actually have some nutritional value.

Dreamy Nighttime Drink

Reviewed: Jan. 3, 2009
I have this often in the winter when it's soooo cold out. It's perfect just before going to bed. Try it with almond extract instead of the vanilla. Awesome!

Wisconsin Native's Beer Cheese Soup

Reviewed: Jan. 2, 2009
This is pretty good, but I think it's a touch bland, honestly. I'm not really sure what it needs. It just tastes like beer. Anyway, I halved the recipe and used Budweiser's American Ale, which my parents gave me. I probably wouldn't buy the stuff on my own, but it's alright. I used the exact same ingredients, but I changed the method to make it easier. Instead of using two different pans, I just sauteed the aromatics in the butter; then, when they were getting soft, I added the flour and mixed it into a paste with the veggies. I then added the liquids, brought the liquid up to a boil, then brought it back to a simmer to add the cheese. After the cheese was melted and incorporated, I let the pot simmer for about ten minutes just to make sure the veggies were soft. A lot easier than dirtying two pans!

Limoncello

Reviewed: Dec. 30, 2008
I made this for my friend for her birthday, and she loved it! I put it in a decorative bottle with some candied lemon peel. It looked really cool and tasted even better. I will definitely make this again!

April's Roasted Red Pepper Cheese Ball

Reviewed: Dec. 28, 2008
I took this to a family gathering and, even though it was one-upped by my sister-in-law's tortilla rollups, everyone still loved it. I served it with multigrain crackers and wheat thins. I also upped the seasoning a bit and added some smoked paprika. Delish!
