Best Italian Sausage Soup

Reviewed: Oct. 15, 2006
I absolutely love this recipe and serve it whenever guests come into town. I usually use spinach (either fresh or the bagged frozen) rather than zucchini and I have made it with only 1 lb. sausage, and it always turns out amazing. I also use cheese tortellini, as another reviewer noted. Great recipe!

Fast and Easy Tofu Lo-Mein

Reviewed: Oct. 15, 2006
This is such an easy meal to make and always turns out tasty and satisfying. I sometimes make this vegetarian (no tofu) and even with chicken rather than tofu...always a winner.

BBQ Tuna Fritters

Reviewed: Oct. 15, 2006
Love this recipe, even though I'm usually not a BBQ fan. Turns out way better when you use good BBQ sauce (my fave is Sweet Baby Rae's), and it's a really easy meal if you serve it with mac and cheese and a veggie.

Quick Chicken And Wine

Reviewed: Oct. 15, 2006
What a great recipe! The chicken always turns out tasty, and I would even serve this to guests. Recipe is perfect (and easy!) as is.

Pasta Shells with Portobello Mushrooms and Asparagus in Boursin Sauce

Reviewed: Oct. 15, 2006
Made this for guests and it was a hit! I substituted regular fresh mushrooms for the portobello and I cut up the asparagus to make it easier to eat, but other than that, wonderful recipe.

Pumpkin Cream Cheese Muffins

Reviewed: Oct. 15, 2006
These were really good, but they took a REALLY long time to make. They also didn't look as pretty as I had hoped (maybe a streusel topping would help).

Apple Strudel Muffins

Reviewed: Oct. 15, 2006
Wonderful recipe as is. Made them extra large for guests and they turned out beautifully--like a coffee shop muffin.

Kitchen Sink Cookies

Reviewed: Oct. 15, 2006
These are great cookies and come out nicely every time. I used peanut butter chips rather than butterscotch, but I don't recommend substituting toffee pieces...they burned and melted and did something weird to the consistency.

Ginger Glazed Mahi Mahi

Reviewed: Mar. 26, 2007
This sauce is perfect for just about anything, though I have to admit that I loved it best with the mahi mahi. One of my new favorites...

Spinach and Orzo Salad

Reviewed: Jun. 3, 2007
I'm usually not a fan of traditional pasta salads, but this turned out to be a great side for a dinner I made for my boss. As per other suggestions, I added the spinach just before serving and used a balsamic vinaigrette (I made Good Seasons) for the dressing. It went really well with "Swordfish with Citrus Pesto" (Giada's recipe on Food Network), and a basic tomato salad (tomato, onion, basil, olive oil). I also substituted blue cheese to keep with the Italian theme, and I just loved the taste.

To Die For Blueberry Muffins

Reviewed: Jun. 3, 2007
The taste and texture of these muffins were absolutely great, and I even made them with frozen blueberries. I wasn't a fan of the crumble topping (I prefer the strudel topping from "Apple Strudel Muffins" from this site), and the muffins fell apart as I was taking them out of the pan. Since there are so few, this can be a problem if you're serving them to guests (as I was).

Fiery Fish Tacos with Crunchy Corn Salsa

Reviewed: Jun. 3, 2007
I loved the idea of this recipe, which is why I gave it 4 stars, but I changed the "corn salsa" since others thought it was bland. I made my own: corn, green peppers, and onions sauteed in olive oil and then seasoned with chili powder, lime juice, and salt and pepper). They were great served with chopped fresh tomatoes and onions--definitely something I will make again and again.

Awesome Slow Cooker Pot Roast

Reviewed: Jun. 3, 2007
Although I usually make a wine pot roast, I couldn't turn down this recipe since it looked so easy to make. And, it turned out so well--the meat was tender and the sauce was very nice. Perfect meal when you don't have a lot of time for prep.

Champagne Shrimp and Pasta

Reviewed: Jun. 3, 2007
I made this recipe exactly as specified, and it will definitely be something I will use as a standby when I'm looking to impress. Not only were the flavors unbelievable, but the recipe itself is well-written and easy to follow. Great for a romantic dinner. ***Just a follow-up: I tried to double this recipe and it ended up taking a LOT longer to reduce the sauce. Add extra time if you plan to do this.

Grilled Shrimp Scampi

Reviewed: Jun. 3, 2007
I made these for a 12 person dinner party, and it turned out to be a great decision because most of the preparation can be done ahead of time (a big plus for me). I just stuck them on the grill right before serving. Great flavor.

Gourmet White Pizza

Reviewed: Jun. 5, 2007
I have to admit this pizza came out very tasty, although I wish there were more tomatoes and less chicken (I'm a recovering vegetarian, though, and my husband thought it was perfect). It is fattening, but a great way to spend calories.

White Peach Sangria

Reviewed: Jun. 10, 2007
I loved this recipe, but I thought it might be too sweet so I didn't use the lemonade. I also used nectarines, green apples, and lemon slices instead of the fruit, and used mango vodka since I couldn't find peach. Everyone at girl's night just loved it. It is strong (which is good)--I quadrupled the recipe for 10 girls, and I still needed another two bottles of wine. People love this, so make more than you think. Since I hadn't tried the original, I still gave the recipe 5 stars, especially since my changes didn't affect the finished product negatively.

Triple Berry Crisp

Reviewed: Jun. 10, 2007
I used 3 12 oz. bags of frozen mixed berries (strawberries, blueberries, blackberries, raspberries) but followed the rest of the recipe exactly. Everyone loved this and really raved about it, but next time I think I will make less crust and also use less butter (I think you can definitely cut 1/2 c. without any problems, maybe more).

Honey Lime Chicken Wings

Reviewed: Jun. 10, 2007
Wow, these were absolutely perfect for a summer garden party. I decided to grill the wings (takes about 30-40 minutes on medium heat on a gas grill) and basted them with plain honey while they were grilling. I then tossed them with the sauce before serving, and people couldn't get enough of these. I actually think they may be some of the best wings I've ever made.

Supreme Scalloped Potatoes

Reviewed: Jun. 10, 2007
I followed a previous reviewer's suggestions and didn't boil the potatoes. I thinly sliced them horizontally and mixed them with the other ingredients. I also lightened the recipe by using fat-free chicken soup, sour cream, and milk, and I didn't add the butter. I did use regular cheddar, though. I baked them for an hour and 10 minutes, adding more cheese to the top in the last few minutes. They came out great.
