Mouth-Watering Stuffed Mushrooms

Reviewed: Dec. 10, 2006
Very good with just enough *zing*. I used minced onion instead of onion powder.

Bean Soup

Reviewed: Dec. 4, 2006
WOW! Outstanding soup! I grew up on Campbell's Bean & Bacon, but will not resort to that again. The flavors of this are much more complex and satisfying. The baking soda trick was GREAT -- be sure to rinse off the beans with cold water a couple times. I made the following alterations: After cooking the beans, I put them and the remaining ingredients into a crock pot and cooked on low overnight. I used two smoked ham shanks instead of a simple ham bone, and used diced smoked turkey kielbasa in place of diced ham. I sauteed the veggies in a little olive oil before adding to the crock pot. Used good, rich chicken stock instead of water and did NOT add any salt. A couple good shakes of Tabasco added the necessary balance.

Chicken Pot Pie IX

Reviewed: Nov. 8, 2006
Very good and enjoyed by everyone. I followed other reviewers suggestions and added poultry seasoning and garlic powder. Also used frozen veggies in place of fresh. Instead of using pie crust, I topped the meat & veggie mixture with corn bread dough and baked for 25 mins at 400 degrees. Next time, I will make more gravy as it did not have enough to suit me.

Sherry Sour Cream Chicken

Reviewed: Nov. 6, 2006
This was very good and smelled great while baking. Per other reviews, I added onions, mushrooms, and minced garlic to the sauce. I didn't have fresh herbs available, so used dried "Tuscan herb" blend. It was still very tasty. Served with roasted root vegetables and green salad.

Pumpkin Crisp

Reviewed: Oct. 27, 2006
Quick, easy, and crowd pleasing! My only substitution was using a Cinnamon Swirl cake mix (Betty Crocker) I had on hand, instead of using yellow cake mix. It was probably better for it.

Greek Lemon Chicken Soup

Reviewed: Oct. 27, 2006
I was only going to give this 4 stars since it was not a hit with my family, though I loved it, and my best friend and her two kids were fighting over the sample that I brought over to them. Alas, I finished the remains when I returned home and decided it needs 5 stars. Made the following changes: just used 1 1/2 TBS chicken soup base in water; eliminated the celery; sauteed onion with 2 cloves garlic in EVOO before adding to soup; only used 2 TBS butter & flour to make a light roux, added some broth to the roux before adding back into soup; added 1/2 cup uncooked orzo pasta during last 10-15 mins of cooking; only used 4 egg yolks; used a roasted chicken from grocery which I skinned, boned, and chopped before adding to soup; garnished w/ fresh, minced parsley

Baklava

Reviewed: Jun. 18, 2006
Phenomenal! So tasty and easy to make. I made this for a special end to Father's Day dinner, and everyone immediately went back for seconds and thirds. I added lemon zest to the syrup as it simmered. And I added about 1/3 more cinnamon than the recipe called for. We did not think it was too sweet.

Cilantro Chicken Salad

Reviewed: Mar. 23, 2006
We really enjoyed this. The flavors are very light and refreshing. This would be a perfect summer supper salad. I ate it over fresh baby greens. The teenagers mixed it into some stir-fried sesame rice noodles, as well as ate it over the fresh greens.

Pumpkin and Sausage Soup

Reviewed: Oct. 9, 2005
This was surprisingly excellent and very well received at a potluck. I used a medium-spicy sausage handmade by my FIL instead of buying Andouille and it was perfect.

Simple Whole Roasted Chicken

Reviewed: Feb. 5, 2005
Very simple and very good. My husband commented while it was cooking that it smelled so good, as did a friend who visited just as it was being taken from the oven. The meat ooozed juices as we cut into it. The aroma and flavor was exotic and delicious. My only problem was that the inner part of my chicken was not quite done, even though I gave it an extra 5 minutes in the oven. This could be due to the fact that I had a slightly larger chicken than the recipe called for, and/or due to an aging and possibly faulty oven. I will definitely try this recipe again and again.

Chimichurri Sauce

Reviewed: Feb. 5, 2005
This is very good. It is an unusual flavor, unlike anything I've tried before, but so fresh and dazzling on the tongue. I tried it on the Simple Roasted Chicken recipe from here and look forward to trying it on some steak or burgers soon.

Jamie's Cranberry Spinach Salad

Reviewed: Jan. 22, 2005
This is the only salad that I CRAVE. It is so good! Follow the suggestions and use half the sugar (add some Splenda if you like) and half the oil. THe poppy seeds aren't necessary, they don't really add anything to it. But be sure to toast your sesame seeds to really bring out their flavor. I made it for a party tonight and everyone asked for the recipe.

Cranberry Sauce Extraordinaire

Reviewed: Jan. 13, 2005
My mother has always made Cranberry-Orange Relish for Thanksgiving and Christmas. So that's what I did for my first Thanksgiving as a newlywed. Right after dinner, my hubby told me he'd rather have what he grew up with...the canned jellied cranberry stuff. So that's what we've had for the past 15 years. Finally, this past Thanksgiving, I decided I wanted something that was more gourmet tasting. I tried this and it was a big hit! Even my canned-cranberry-loving husband ate it, had seconds, and commented that it was very good. I made it again for Christmas and it will be my recipe forever more.

Orange Pecan French Toast

Reviewed: Jan. 13, 2005
I made this for Christmas day breakfast. They were good, but way too sweet, and I even cut the sugar down a bit. They were not immediately requested again by the kids, which is my barometer for rating a recipe. I may try this again sometime with a few tweakings to the recipe.

Brownie Biscotti

Reviewed: Jan. 13, 2005
Excellent! I drizzled semi-sweet chocolate over one cut side. They made great holiday gifts!

Buttermilk Pancakes II

Reviewed: Jan. 12, 2005
These are incredible. My 10 yr old daughter got a terrible craving for pancakes and wanted to make some on her own. I showed her this website and we looked for a good recipe together. I even ran out to the grocery that morning for the buttermilk! She made them all by herself and reveled in the praise of her older sisters who declared them better than any they'd ever had in a restaurant. She is as anxious to make them again as we are to eat them!!

Creamy Hot Chocolate

Reviewed: Jan. 12, 2005
This was very good and easy and will replace our usual recipe. I'd say this is much better than any I've had at any restaurant or coffee shop. Definitely use MILK instead of water.
