Rosemary and Garlic Simmered Pork Chops

Reviewed: Sep. 7, 2010
Great taste, succulent, and very diverse with the balance of flavors. I used fresh rosemary - rubbing the fresh leaves across the chops, adding salt and pepper right before browning. The sauce is perfect - I used my own beef broth I made recently - so I could adjust the salt taste from there. I also put a small sprig of rosemary into the pan juice and let that cook down a bit. A taste from heaven and beyond. Thanks for posting!

Roasted Rack of Lamb

Reviewed: Jan. 2, 2007
Wonderful! I didn't change a thing. Roasted rack at time stated and it was a perfect rare inside with a slight crunch outside. I served this with a mint hollandaise sauce that was used for dipping "lollipops" in.

Grandma's Green Bean Casserole

Reviewed: Nov. 24, 2006
This was an interesting dish at my thanksgiving table. I used this recipe as a good solid base, although I used green beans that were blanched from the garden, and then frozen this past summer. I don't care for green beans actually but thought this dish was great. I might add bacon next time, (1 strip cooked and crumbled) sauted the onion in butter, added flour, beans, sour cream, and mild cheddar. I didn't get the compliments I thought I would get, which surprised me since I thought it was tasted warm and bubbly. Guess Thansgiving just has to much food. Would try again, as a side so the recipe shines more.

Salmon with Dijon Cream Sauce

Reviewed: Nov. 16, 2006
I did like this recipe, the salmon was flaky and not dry, the sauce went beautifully over the fish. I did a little different with the sauce, I sweated the shallots in 1 tbsp. butter, then wine. Reduced wine/butter/shallot mixture to about 2 tbsp. I added 3 tbsp. flour, made a roux, followed by half & half and a bit of water until the sauce is a bit thin and creamy.

Cauliflower Casserole

Reviewed: Nov. 2, 2006
I made this recipe using fresh cauliflower, and although I wasn't sure how this would turn out with such few ingredients, I was pleasantly surprised. Easy to prepare, and was baked nicely. I didn't over butter, and dotted the top with cheese, but the bread crumbs added a nice crunch.

Spicy Steamed Shrimp

Reviewed: Oct. 23, 2006
Hey, a Marylander here, I have to say, this is a tried and true technique. Steaming versus boiling. Great!

Turkey Tenderloins

Reviewed: Oct. 19, 2006
Very easy, and delicious! I marinated my tenderloin in buttermilk, then rubbed it with cayanne pepper seasoning, and it turned out moist, and also great for sandwiches the next day.

Shrimp Bisque II

Reviewed: Oct. 16, 2006
The taste of the bisque is very, very smooth. The changes that I made were as follows: already had shrimp shell stock, so just used this. After cooking the flour/butter mixture along with fish stock, I added onion, celery, etc. I let the mixture heat slowly, and thickened for about 40 minutes. Added shrimp at last ten minutes. Yum, yum!

Tzatziki

Reviewed: Oct. 10, 2006
Authentic taste, and great side to homemade pita and falafel. (In our house my family prefers tzatziki to tahini.) I did decrease the garlic a bit, but otherwise, a delightful side!

Sugar Cookie Frosting

Reviewed: Oct. 10, 2006
I used this recipe to decorate a chocolate chip "vegan" cookie cake for my son. This icing turned out delicious and very easy to work with when I piped in the details I wanted on the cookie. The only change I made was to add soy milk instead of regular milk, and the end result was as good as the orginial.

Jalapeno Poppers I

Reviewed: Oct. 1, 2006
I explored the internet and included many recipes from "allrecipes" for the best tasting jalapeno popper. I chose this recipe based on the baking method, rather then fried. I followed this recipe to the "T" and found it easy to pipe in the filling, (using the ol' corner of baggie method) and gently rolling the peppers in milk/egg, then cornflake crumbs. Not hard at all, milk, egg mixture really stuck to pepper, and cornflake crumbs a perfect combination. Was delicious! Family ate all, (and had quite few from garden). I really like the baked part, honestly didn't miss the "fried" mess that usually comes with frying. Really worth a very small effort!

Garlic Chicken

Reviewed: Sep. 5, 2006
I could give a "5" but the fact that I needed to add some seasoning, brings it down to a "4". The basic recipe works well, (made it first the way the recipe was written) second time I added 1 tsp. celery salt, 1/2 tsp. red pepper and course ground pepper. The result was finger licking good, it was so juicy! Thanks for the recipe!

Easiest Eggplant

Reviewed: Aug. 25, 2006
UPDATED: 10/17/06 I gave this one another try. First I cut the peeled eggplant at a approx. 1 inch thick slices. I sweated the slices in a bowl of brine, (1 tsp. salt) to 1 quart of water overnight. I removed the slices from the water, rinsed them, and carefully dried them between two paper towels. To the mayonnaise I added: 1/4 minced clove of garlic, 1/8 tsp. paprika(to taste), 1/8 tsp. cayanne pepper (to taste). Instead of bread crumbs, I used corn flake crumbs. After coating the eggplant slices with the mayonnaise mixture, I gently patted the eggplant so the crumb topping stayed put. After baking (turned once during mid point in time), I chose to sprinkle the top with a mixture of mozzeralla and parmesan cheese, lighly until melted. After all this work, I can only give this recipe a 2, the taste was still.....meh.

Yellow Squash Casserole

Reviewed: Jul. 17, 2006
So much squash, so little time. As others, I have mega amounts of yellow and zucchini squash growing in the garden. Was looking for something comforting, instead of the "grilled" "chopped" sorta recipe. This was it! I used saltines, (even before reading the reviews) and they turned out great. I added minced garlic, provolone, sharp chedder, swiss, (this is all I had for cheese) and some celery seed. Thank you, this is a recipe that will be made over and over, just for comfort sake.

Italian Confetti Pasta Salad

Funny you hear so many different opinions about pasta salad. Well, this is a real nice, delicious recipe. Of course, add or subtract veggies, but following recipe this one is one to pay attention to.

Shepherd's Pie VI

Reviewed: Aug. 24, 2005
This really worked out nicely. I had left over mashed potatoes from last night's dinner, so I used them for the topping. Instead of carrots, I used fresh corn, (cut off the cob from our garden) and fresh green beans, also from the garden. I made the gravy using vegetable broth, added worchestire sauce, and ketchup. Delicious! Thanks for the recipe!

Baked Pork Chops I

Reviewed: Jul. 27, 2005
Excellent, excellent! This recipe deserves the high ratings. The pork chops were fork tender, and didn't have any trouble with the coating being "mushy".....I did however, 1) bake for a total of 30 minutes, not any longer. 2) did not use a foil top. 3) added "soup/gravy" for last 10 minutes of baking. Family ate this recipe up faster then the cows coming home. Thanks!
