Strawberry Pie II

Reviewed: May 11, 2007
I made this pie last night and it was perfect. I took the suggestion of other reviewers and used 3/4 c sugar and 1/2 c water which made the pie not too sweet. This will be my summer dessert for picnics! Thank you for sharing!

Shrimp and Quinoa

Reviewed: Jan. 18, 2007
I made this last night and my husband and I loved it. I did want to make a healthier version so I used 1 teaspoon olive oil to saute the vegetables and shrimp in a non-stick skillet over medium heat and did not add the additional 2 tablespoons of oil at the end. This shaved off about 100 calories and 10 grams of fat per serving! I will definitely make this again.

Chicken Pot Pie IX

Reviewed: Nov. 28, 2006
This is a great recipe for using up all of the leftover turkey from Thanksgiving! I made slight variations since my turkey was already cooked I did not add it to the pea, celery, and carrot mixture while it was on the stove top boiling. I added it to the pie shell when everything was ready for assembly. Also, I reduced the amount of butter to 2 Tablespoons and had great results. The other reviewers were right about the additional herbs, I added sage, parsley, thyme, basil, rosemary, and onion powder to the sauce to give it a more complex taste. My husband and I were so happy to have another way to use up our turkey! Thank you for submitting this one!

Homestyle Turkey, the Michigander Way

Reviewed: Nov. 28, 2005
I made this for the first time on Thanksgiving this year. Wow, what a great recipe. My husband is requesting that I make it again for Christmas Eve and says it was the best turkey he ever had! I made just a turkey breast about 5 lbs and used a Reynold's oven roasting bag cooked at 350 for about 1 1/2 hours. I didn't have dried minced onion so I used fresh and doubled the amount and it turned out great. I also only had the cubes of chicken bouillon, so I used 3 cubes and kept the water at the same amount. Thank you for a great recipe!!!

Darra's Famous Tuna Waldorf Salad Sandwich Filling

Reviewed: Sep. 5, 2005
I made this for friends this weekend and everyone thought it was great! I substituted poached chicken breasts for the tuna and used cashews for the walnuts. I also skipped the relish. I served this on rustic bread. Thank you for the inspiration!

Cherry Pie IV

Reviewed: Aug. 14, 2005
I made this last weekend to take to a friend's home for Sunday dinner. This was the first time I'd made cherry pie and was a little nervous that it was going to turn out too sweet. After cooking the cherries with the cornstarch and sugar I tasted it. Sure enough the fruit I was using was sweet especially for sour cherries. I ended up adding 2 Tbls of lemon juice to help break up the sweetness, which worked out perfectly. Next time I'll check the sweetness of the fruit before adding sugar. Also I didn't have any almond extract on hand so I used vanilla and it was a good combo. Everyone loved the pie and I'll definitely use this recipe again. Thank you Beth!

Quinoa Tabbouleh

Reviewed: May 26, 2005
Thank you for this great recipe! I've been trying to find a way to work more whole grains into my diet and this was perfect. I did cut back on the olive oil to save on fat and calories but the lemon really brightens the flavor. Also this will store in the refrigerator for a good 3-4 days and still taste great. Also, I didn't have any fresh parsley on hand so I used dried and it still tasted great. I'll be eating this all summer!

Fresh Asparagus Soup

Reviewed: May 26, 2005
Wow! I finally found a great way to use all of the Spring time asparagus. My husband and I had this for dinner last night and it was delicious and so easy to make. I substituted fat free yogurt for regular and used light soy milk and it still tasted great. Thank you for this great recipe!

Cornish Game Hens with Rice Stuffing

Reviewed: Dec. 31, 2004
I found this recipe a couple weeks ago and then my grocer put cornish game hen on sale, so I've tested this recipe twice! This one is a real winner. Easy to prepare, but remember to start this a couple hours before you want to eat. As a great bonus it makes your house smell great. A couple of substitutions that I made were using 1/3 cup of wild rice pilaf instead of just wild rice, this worked out perfectly. I also used 1 cup of low sodium canned chicken broth instead of the bouillon and water which worked well too. Also, I liked adding 2 Tbls of golden raisins to the butter, almonds, and onions for the rice stuffing. It gives it a nice sweet dimension. Also, if you don't have any slivered almonds on hand you can use any others nuts. I just chopped some mixed nuts and used those and it was still yummy! Thank you for sharing this great recipe!!

Beef Tenderloin Stuffed with Lobster

Reviewed: Dec. 31, 2004
I made this for Christmas Eve dinner. What a success! I had a petite tenderloin, about 1.25 lbs, and used only 1 large 1 lb lobster tail and followed the recipe exactly. I thought this might cook through more quickly than a larger piece of meat but 45 mins at 450 and it was perfectly medium rare. I did let the meat rest for about 10 to 15 minutes before cutting to let the juices redistribute. Great presentation at the table. Fed 3 comfortably with leftovers. Thanks for the great recipe Mike!

Cornish Finnish Michigan Pasties

Reviewed: Oct. 4, 2004
I grew up in Michigan and haven't found anything that compared to a pasty... until now! What a great recipe, perfect for a chilly fall evening. I didn't have any beef bouillon on hand so I reduced a can of chicken broth to 1/2 a cup and used that instead. I also skipped the MSG. I served a green salad on the side and called it dinner!
