Amaretto

Reviewed: Dec. 15, 2006
So simple, fast, and tasty! I accidentally doubled the brown sugar, but I think the mistake wound up bringing the recipe to the "thickness" everyone else was looking for and gave it a the deeper amber color we're used to seeing with amaretto. The hardest part was finding a place that sells bottles (I wound up finding a cool shaped bottle at The Container Store), but if I had planned ahead I might have gone to one of the many stores online. Type "empty glass bottles" into your search engine.

Grilled Chicken Over Spinach

Reviewed: Dec. 13, 2006
I'm a fan of the healthy fare, which is what attracted me to this recipe, however it turned out rather bland. The spinach turned out pretty good, but the chicken needed some kind of extra kick. I might try more garlic next time or throw some tomatoes in for a little bite to the dish.

Absolutely Fabulous Greek/House Dressing

Reviewed: Nov. 9, 2006
Totally agree to cut the vinegar a bit, but otherwise this is a SIX star greek dressing when you use fresh ingredients--especially fresh garlic and basil.

Chicken O'Neill

Reviewed: Mar. 24, 2005
Fantastic--we can't wait for the leftovers. It's a filling and tasty meal that's probably safe for any palate. Instead of using olive oil in the pan, we just cooked the chicken in the Italian dressing it was marinating in (Paul Newman's). More specifics are we didn't use blackening spice. Instead we used Tony Chachere's Creole seasoning and our white wine was Prosecco. Also used red and orange bell peppers (it's a prettier dish that way). Don't put parmesan on top and I could deal without the tomatoes as they just become lukewarm and mushy on top. Great dish.

Peanut Butter Noodles

Reviewed: Feb. 20, 2005
Excellent recipe. I added 6 oz of cooked chicken and it turned out great. Plus the added protein will make it a bit more filling and longer lasting.

Chicken with Tomato, Orange and Rosemary Couscous

Reviewed: Jan. 1, 2005
This meal grew on us as we ate it but it may have been because we only had crushed tomatoes which, in turn, made it a little overwhelmingly tomatoey. The simplicity might tempt us to make it again, plus if we can think of some better seasoning for the chicken.

Spinach Quiche

Reviewed: Jan. 1, 2005
I bought a pre-made graham cracker crust in a pan and three of us were raving at the unique and delicious touch of its sweetness to compliment an already delicious recipe.

Black Bean and Corn Salad I

Reviewed: Jan. 1, 2005
This is amazingly packed full of flavor and super easy to make. A huge hit with my husband and a guest. I used one can of black beans instead of two for more of a crisp experience with the corn and red peppers. We might use some onions next time too.

Lentils and Rice with Fried Onions (Mujadarrah)

Reviewed: Dec. 10, 2004
Definitely use more onion. If someone has exact water measurements that might be helpful because when I poured "enough water to cover the lentils," and brought it to a boil, all of it boiled away! I adapted and it turned out great, it just wound up taking a longer time. We'll make it again.

West African Peanut Soup

Reviewed: Dec. 7, 2004
Not as flavorful as we had thought it would turn out, though it grew on us as we ate it. I have to say that the addition of freshly sliced apples on the side, as one reviewer suggested, would have been perfect. And an even better suggestion by my husband was to add pineapple. It's very filling and was interesting (in a mostly positive way) for trying something different.

Perfect Turkey

Reviewed: Dec. 1, 2004
I blame myself--we skipped the brining process and our little 8 pound turkey was a little dry on top but the rosemary and gravy ultimately helped it out. It's actually been more useful for leftovers so all is not lost (and the leftovers have been great in soups!)

Black Bean Vegetable Soup

Reviewed: Dec. 1, 2004
We thought it was awesome even unblended! We used a "Mexican" can of corn instead of regular and threw in some leftover shredded Thanksgiving turkey and it was wonderful.

Apricot Lentil Soup

Reviewed: Dec. 1, 2004
Excellent even when unblended (no blender or food processor here). We just made sure to cut the apricots into bits. There were only two of us and the entire pot was gone in two days. Next time we'll increase the portions for extra to freeze and maybe try some turkey in it.

Italian Stuffed Zucchini

Reviewed: Nov. 19, 2004
It turned out fine but would probably be better suited to a sweeter spaghetti sauce. I used my grandfather's saltier spaghetti sauce recipe which I think is better paired with meat instead of vegetables. Parmesean cheese always makes an Italian dish better though. I'd still make it again.

Zucchini Bread IV

Reviewed: Nov. 17, 2004
Similar to other reviewers I'm used to something a little more moist but still good. I might cut down on the sugar next time (not because i don't like sweet--just a lot of calories) and use applesauce in its place.

Stuffed Green Peppers II

Reviewed: Nov. 16, 2004
We used turkey italian sausage instead to cut down on the fat and yellow and red peppers to add to the eye's delight. Great dish involving grains, fruit, vegetables, and meat. Extra tasty with the italian spices.
