Pumpkin Pancakes

Reviewed: Nov. 5, 2010
I really liked the flavor of these pancakes but the batter prepared as the recipe calls is very, very thick. I thinned it out by adding milk. I tried this recipe for both pancakes and waffles and I thought that the waffles were superior.

Stuffed Acorn Squash

Reviewed: Nov. 5, 2010
I wasn't sure what to rate this because I really didn't follow the recipe very well! I used homemade stuffing + added Italian sausage and really enjoyed it. I softened some celery and onion, mixed in some small bread cubes and chicken stock, along with the spices mentioned in the original recipe and the brown sugar and butter in the bottom of the squash. It was a great autumn meal.

Florentine Artichoke Dip

Reviewed: Oct. 8, 2010
I LOVE artichoke dip - and this one is great! I am not a fan of spinach, so I chose to omit it from the recipe - but I'm sure if anyone else likes spinach then you will enjoy it here. The dip was creamy and delicious and had a really great flavor to it. I dipped Parmesan pita chips and it was a perfect pair!

Lemon Chicken Tenders

Reviewed: Aug. 28, 2010
I'm not sure if I did something wrong, but I don't think that I did. My tenders did not turn out as I would have expected them to. The breading never crisped up or browned and left me wishing I would have pan fried them. I really did not like this dish because of that.

Spinach and Feta Pita Bake

Reviewed: Aug. 28, 2010
I REALLY liked this! It is so versatile - just like with a pizza, you can pick and choose what you want to top it with. I made this for lunch and for dinner several times recently and it was so delicious. Great, quick and easy meal.

Pasta Shells with Portobello Mushrooms and Asparagus in Boursin Sauce

Reviewed: Aug. 28, 2010
I REALLY enjoyed this! We even had seconds, which is a rarity in my house. The flavors that the Boursin cheese adds to the dish is just wonderful. When I made the dish I had just run out of mushrooms - if I enjoy it so much without the mushrooms, I can only imagine how much better it would be with the addition of the mushrooms. Thanks for sharing this recipe, I would have never thought to use Boursin in a cream sauce.

Old Fashioned Potato Salad

Reviewed: Aug. 28, 2010
I did really enjoy this potato salad, but as it stands now, I felt that the onion really overpowered the flavor of the dish. I would advise anyone to cut back on the raw onion so that all of the flavors of the meal can shine. This is a great, traditional potato salad recipe.

Strawberry Shortcake

Reviewed: Aug. 28, 2010
I made this strawberry shortcake with a 7-year-old and it turned out beautifully. He was able to do everything by himself (of course with a little bit of direction from me) and the shortcake turned out beautifully! There was a lot of great homestyle flavor in the shortcake itself, then the strawberries just added the summer tang. Great recipe, especially for making with kids!

Amatriciana

Reviewed: Aug. 28, 2010
I really enjoyed this meal! It is very simple and easy to make with ingredients I always have on hand. I will admit that I substituted pancetta for bacon, I figured that would be more in the spirit of the meal. The dish had a lot of flavor, much came from the pancetta.

Huckleberry-Lemon Scones

Reviewed: Jun. 18, 2010
This is a great spring or summer-time treat. I used blueberries instead of huckleberries. The only comment I have to make is that these were very tart/lemony - make sure to measure exactly or use a little bit less than the recipe calls for.

Chantal's New York Cheesecake

Reviewed: Jun. 3, 2010
Great tasting cheesecake! This was my first ever cheesecake experience and I have to admit I was a little nervous after reading all of the other reviews - I didn't even realize there was a potential of cracking. Unfortunately, mine cracked, but based on other reviews, that means that I did something wrong (which is certainly possible!). I served this at a bridal shower on a whim and it turned out great - I was very proud of my first cheesecake making experience.

Excellent flavor! Consider blending/processing the mixture for a creamier texture.

Lamb Chops with Balsamic Reduction

Reviewed: Nov. 7, 2009
This is SO good! I followed the recipe almost exactly as written. The only thing I did differently was use fresh herbs. I was out of thyme, so I had to omit. The flavor in the reduction really intensified the flavor of the lamb. I served this with roasted asparagus and another recipe from this site - Greek Orzo.

Broccoli Beef II

Reviewed: Sep. 29, 2009
The flavor of the beef was terrific - I think that it's a great start. What I didn't like about this recipe is the pasta. I would cook this with rice or with Asian noodles instead. I would also replace the 1/2 c of beef broth with water and beef bouillon in the sauce. I think that adding a little bit of corn starch to the sauce would make it a little thicker/richer instead of thin and watery. This really is a great recipe though - lots of flavor & Asian flare.

The idea of this is great. I didn't love the yogurt sauce, it was only okay. These are VERY messy!!

Mediterranean Greek Salad

Reviewed: Aug. 17, 2009
Delicious Mediterranean salad! Wonderful flavor and oh, so healthy. A nice change of pace from the traditional salad or even pasta salad.
