Blue Cheese, Bacon and Chive Stuffed Pork Chops

Reviewed: Jan. 11, 2006
Fantastic! Like the other reviews stated, it took about double the cooking time. Didn't add the pecan/apple mixture, and it was great without. Don't add salt - doesn't need it, but did sprinkle the tops of each chop with garlic powder and fresh ground pepper. Served with roasted potatoes and veggies.

Spiced Sweet Roasted Red Pepper Hummus

Reviewed: Sep. 17, 2005
Bar none the best hummus I have EVER had, homemade or store-bought, and it is so easy to make! I did add a little extra cumin and cayenne - but for a milder taste follow the recipe.

Black Bean and Couscous Salad

Reviewed: Sep. 17, 2005
The best recipe for couscous I've ever seen! I've brought this to a few group functions and it's always been a hit (even though most of the group doesn't know what couscous even is!) EDIT: I replaced the couscous with quinoa, and made a little more dressing than what the recipe calls for (5 Tbsp olive oil, almost 3 Tbsp lime juice, etc). Using the grain over the pasta makes such a huge difference, and it's a lot healthier!

Braised Balsamic Chicken

Reviewed: Sep. 27, 2005
Fantastic! The changes I made: Cut up the chicken, replaced fresh garlic for garlic salt and added brown mushrooms. This is perfect over sticky rice, the sauce soaks into the rice and it is oh so yummy!

Mom's Zucchini Bread

Reviewed: Oct. 23, 2006
Yum! And so easy to make... I added 2 tsp nutmeg, reduced the sugar by a 1/4 cup, and replaced half of the oil with applesauce. Only ended up using a teaspoon of vanilla - ran out! :) A keeper for sure!

Penne with Chicken and Asparagus

Reviewed: Mar. 27, 2007
Started by following the recipe, but I had used the Barilla Plus (whole grain) penne. As I was preparing the asparagus/chicken broth mix, I realized that I was not going to have enough liquid to work with the pasta, so I added another cup of broth. It improved the final results somewhat, but there was still something missing - I think that the suggestion of using roasted red peppers and onion is a great idea (unfortunately, I didn't have the time to really improvise on this paticular night LOL). All in all, though, this was a great light dish, and tasted GREAT with the whole-grain pasta.

Almond Wild Rice

Reviewed: Nov. 16, 2009
I bought a brown/wild rice blend (wild rice is EXPENSIVE!), and followed the directions on the bag in cooking it, which means I didn't need the full 5 1/2 cups of broth. It turned out great - served it with cranberry chicken at a dinner party, and people could not stop talking about it. Next time I will add some more golden raisins and some green onion/shallot. As far as leftovers are concerned, follow the other tips here and add a little broth or water to it before heating, otherwise it gets really dried out. Overall, though - a great side dish!!!

Banana Banana Bread

Reviewed: Jan. 19, 2010
Great basic recipe - I increased everything by 50% (so 3 cups of flour, 1 1/2 tsp baking soda, etc), and the batter fit in 2 8x4 bread pans perfectly. This time I added walnuts and cinnamon. The other additions I saw (nutmeg, vanilla, chocolate chips) are all great ideas, too! I will make this again - will try some healthier substitutions, though.

Baked Fresh Cherry Pie

Reviewed: Jun. 25, 2012
My first attempt at a fresh cherry pie, and this turned out (almost) perfect! I was using sweet cherries, so I decreased the sugar to 3/4 cup, and realized at the last minute that I didn't have any almond extract, so I left it out. Brushed the bottom crust with egg before filling it, and brushed the top crust with egg and dusted it with sugar. I also followed Fabricgal's tip to bake the pie at 450 for 10 minutes, and then decrease the temp to 350-375 for 30 minutes. Overall, the bottom crust was a little soggy (will have to try chilling the crust in the pie plate before adding the filling next time), and it was a little runny, even with the tapioca - I'm guessing it was because I used sweet cherries. But it tasted GREAT, and the juice was a great addition to the vanilla ice cream I also put on the plate. :) Side note - a chopstick works great in a pinch for a cherry pitter. A straw would work great, but I didn't have any that were heavy enough.

Onion Soup Pork Chops

Reviewed: Sep. 29, 2005
TERRIBLE! I should've trusted my gut when I thought, "3 cups of water?! That's an awful lot!" The pork chops were tender, but they were sitting in this pool of liquid that I had to drain off before serving. There's just not enough to this recipe to make it any good.
