Key Lime Pie VII

Reviewed: Nov. 13, 2012
I reduced the lime juice to 1/2 C like other reviewers said, and I wish I hadn't bc it came out too sweet. Next time I will try somewhere between 1/2 & 3/4 cups of juice. I also used 2 cans of sweetened condensed milk, and that was plenty (any more & it would have needed a deep dish pie crust).

Cheesy Buffalo Chicken Dip

Reviewed: Mar. 9, 2011
I have made this many times & it has become one of our fave dishes! I don't like it as well with the Blue Cheese dressing so I use all ranch, and often I will use ranch DIP instead of dressing, bc I like it less runny. And I love how fast & easy it is! I made this for a football party, decided I wanted one w/o the blue cheese, made another batch & got it done before the guests arrived. People tried to bribe me for the leftovers. LOVE this!

Tuna Salad With Fresh Dill

Reviewed: Apr. 1, 2010
Loved this recipe! I doubled it but didn't put nearly that much dill in, bc I just couldn't see anything requiring 1/2 C of dill. I also used white onion bc I didn't have green onions. Will definitely make again!

Garlic Red Potatoes

Reviewed: Apr. 1, 2010
I LOVED these potatoes. However I put them in a ceramic dish, & poured the (premixed) liquid ingredients over them, & put them in the microwave for several minutes, then finished them in the oven for at least 40 mins, & many were still not done. I had them chopped pretty small, too. I think I will seal with plastic wrap in the microwave next time, to allow for some steaming. I sprinkled chopped fresh parsley over the top before serving & that was a nice addition. We all decided that rosemary would have been even better. We served them at a dinner party with a Lamb Shank recipe from Cooking Light, that had a lot of the same ingredients in it. Everyone raved about these delish taters!

Chicken Cordon Bleu II

Reviewed: Apr. 1, 2010
I liked this recipe, although I was wishing it was a bit more flavourful. I even brushed it with Dijon mustard & added fresh basil & a bit of salt & black pepper to the sauce. Next time I think I will add onion & garlic powder, maybe cayenne....?

Smoked Salmon Alfredo Sauce

Reviewed: Jan. 25, 2010
I found this recipe bc I was looking for a use for a can of salmon I had in the cupboard (which has bones, surprise surprise). Anyway I sauteed a clove of garlic with the onion, & I used half milk & half cream, plus a spoonful or 2 of corn starch to thicken. But I thought the milk wasn't as rich & tasty as the cream would have been. I also thought it needed more zing, so I added a few dashes of lemon & herb seasoning. I threw the diced tomato into the sauce just as I was getting ready to serve, and grated some parmesean over the top. It was actually quite good! Even my spouse (an Alaskan who hate salmon?!) said it wasn't too 'fishy' and that he liked it a lot.

Italian Hummus

Reviewed: Jan. 22, 2010
Wow, I was stunned at how well this came out. Will definitely be making it again! Next time I will use the blender however, bc the food processor didn't seem to chop the tomatoes & basil very well (or maybe mine is too weak, not sure). You would never know there was cottage cheese in there. I used raw garlic bc I wanted the spiciness. Ate it on toasted flat bread and loved it for days.

Easy Tuna Casserole

Reviewed: Jan. 22, 2010
I took the recommendations of others and used 2 cans tuna, but I thought that made it a bit fishy tasting. I sprinkled in a bit of garlic powder, mustard powder, cayenne pepper (not for heat but for flavor enhancement, it wasn't hot). I also used a can of cream of mushroom soup based on other reviews. I liked it that way but I didn't try the original soup so I can't speak to that. I also added 1/2 C whole milk and used half cheddar and half velveeta. I sprinkled some chopped fresh basil on top just for color. We liked it, and I loved that it was so easy to make that I was able to prepare it whilst holding a fussy 4 month old!

Easy Four Cheese Lasagna

Reviewed: Jan. 11, 2010
I didn't run out of sauce but I did run out of cheese! I ended up throwing leftover fresh mozzarella & a bit of mexican shredded cheese that I found in the fridge on top. My DH loved it (he used to be a chef, btw) & he said the fresh mozzarella was the best part. I noticed NO difference after using the hand mixer, so if you don't want little white cottage cheese chunks, then use a blender. Next time I will just mix with a fork bc I don't really care. I used a tomato basil jar of sauce and I wanted it to be a bit more spicy or tangy. Maybe a meat sauce, or maybe a sprinkling of pizza peppers or something.

Aussie Sausage Rolls

Reviewed: Nov. 14, 2009
This is a large recipe designed for a party, but you can halve it, or freeze them for reheating (NOT in microwave, use toaster oven or reg oven so they will stay flakey, or freeze before baking).

Instant Millionaire Pie for Diabetics

Reviewed: Mar. 4, 2009
My hubby made this pie in just a few minutes, and it was DEELISH! We took it to a dinner for a diabetic relative, and like it so much that we make it for ourselves too. It is light a refreshing, a nice warm weather dessert, especially.

Tangy Grilled Pork Tenderloin

Reviewed: Apr. 14, 2007
My DH is a chef so when I attempt to cook, I am always nervous that it will pale compared to his creations. But we LOVED this recipe! It was a bit sweet, like a honey baked ham, so next time I might put horseradish or cayenne pepper in the marinade to give it a kick (we're not big into sweet stuff). I ended up having to grill it for nearly an hour (think I had the grill too low) but at the end we turned it up to med-high and made the outside edges a little crusty. SOOOO good that we served it for our next dinner party, because the bulk of the work was done the night before.

Mom's Squash Casserole

Reviewed: Jun. 20, 2006
This is SO delicious! It was like a crustless quiche. We didn't have any seasoned croutons, so we used plain stuffing-type bread cubes, and sprinkled some seasoning on top (oregano, basil, black pepper, garlic & onion powders). This is probably supposed to be a side dish, but we liked it so much that it was the whole meal (and a few extra helpings, LOL).

Beet Soup

Reviewed: May 24, 2006
We had some beets in our produce co-op that we didn't know what to do with. This recipe was great! We didn't have enough beets so we added some potatoes too. Easy and yummy!

Fasoliyyeh Bi Z-Zayt (Syrian Green Beans with Olive Oil)

Reviewed: Mar. 9, 2006
I LOVE this recipe!! I thought I hated green beans, but I now know I just didn't like the way they were being prepared. We made this for a holiday meal and everyone flipped over how good they were. A staple in our house forever!
