Asparagus Casserole

Reviewed: Apr. 3, 2010
As usual I modified the recipe a bit since I rarely have all of the exact ingredients. However, I think these helped. Used only one 8 oz pkg of cream cheese (low fat) and used about 10 oz frozen shrimp, thawed, shelled, seasoned with salt, ground pepper, and ground red pepper, tossed with 1 tsp olive oil and refrigerated for 1 hour, then sautéed in another tsp olive oil and two cloves of chopped garlic for about 5 minutes, then mixed into the cheese mixture per the recipe. Otherwise, followed the recipe and it really turned out well. Somewhat rich but not as much as it would have been with more cream cheese of the non-low-fat variety.

Ciabatta Bread

Reviewed: Apr. 7, 2009
As mentioned by an earlier review - there is no way to get two 13X14 loaves out of this mixture. Glad to see that someone has revised the recipe to read 3X14. That works. However have made this twice before and both times trying to get two 13X14 loaves ended up with one roughly 10x14 loaf which turned out just fine. The dough is sticky but with floured surface and hands and with minimal messing with to form the loaf, it does ok. The bread is delicious. Don't have a spritzer so use a paint brush to lightly brush water over the loaf a couple of times while baking. Worked fine.

Banana Pudding II

Reviewed: Mar. 21, 2009
Excellent recipe. I added an extra Tbsp of cornstarch and couple of Tbsp of sugar but otherwise followed the recipe closely. Took longer than the 15 minutes to thicken in the double boiler (about 25) but turned out great.

Ham Salad Spread

Reviewed: Jan. 22, 2009
This is a very good basic recipe that begs to be modified. I followed directions fairly closely but did make some changes. I omitted celery since we don't care for it and added about a cup of shredded cheese, a Tbsp each of dill relish and jalapeno relish, half a small can of sliced water chestnuts, half a red bell pepper, and used dijon mustard. Put it all in a food processor and processed the heck out of it. Results, a creamy, slightly crunchy, slightly spicy spread that turned out really tasty.

Spinach and Rice (Spanakorizo)

Reviewed: May 17, 2008
An excellent recipe. Made the recipe for 4 (more or less) and used it as a main course for 2 and it was just right. Used a little over half a pound of frozen spinach, one medium onion, two cloves garlic minced, a teaspoon of dried basil, half teaspoon of cayenne pepper, and a bit more than 2 cups of water as the only modifications to the recipe.

Flounder Florentine

Reviewed: Jan. 11, 2008
Used Tilapia instead of Flounder and it was great. Expect any mild white flesh fish would work. Used Half the fish and half the spinach since I was cooking for 2, but the sauce looked so good I made all of it. Had about twice as much sauce for the fish and spinach as called for. Cooked the spinach in boiling water for a few minutes before putting in the baking dish. Took half the sauce and mixed it with the spinach in the bottom of the baking dish, topped with fish (sprinkled a little, maybe 1/8 tsp, cayenne pepper on the fish) then the rest of the sauce on top of that with the cheese and paprika. Turned out very good. With the cayenne pepper and extra sauce, it definitely was not bland at all. Will make this keeper again.

BBQ Pork for Sandwiches

Reviewed: Jan. 7, 2007
A great recipe but I have one issue with some of the reviewers recommendations re: sauce. I can find only a very few sauces that do not have high fructose corn syrup as a main ingredient. All that I read about this ingredient says AVOID. Thus - I have found a couple of good ones that do not have that ingredient. Georgia South BBQ sauce and Chocktaw Willies sauces. Have tried the GA South and it's very good. Will try CW's in a few days. It sounds good as well. And just maybe it's better for you. Course - bbq can only be so good for you since it is sooooo good period......

Zesty Tuna Salad

Reviewed: Nov. 4, 2006
Very good basic recipe. To make it really zesty add 1 tsp (or more)crushed red pepper or 1/4 tsp (or more) cayenne pepper. Also, for variety, I sometimes add chopped black olives and/or jalapeneo peppers and/or garlic and/or cheddar cheese ..... The possibilities are endless.

Pan Seared Salmon I

Reviewed: Aug. 11, 2006
Really very good. My wife's favorite. I usually end up cooking the salmon a bit longer without increasing to high heat. And, at the risk of incuring the wrath of purists, after turning them I squirt a bit of lemon juice (from a bottle) over each fillet and sprinkling with dried dill.

Homemade Guacamole

Reviewed: Aug. 11, 2006
I actually followed this recipe pretty much exactly. I usually am tempted to mess with them and end up with something that may be good but then I can't remember what I did that made it good. This one turned out well and I don't have to remember since I didn't change anything, much. Just a bit more tomato and jalapeno and a little less onion. Served it over cheese and bean quesadillas topped with a dollop of sour cream. Absolutely as good as you will find in any good Mexican restaurant.

Sage Pork Chops

Reviewed: Feb. 24, 2006
Excellent recipe. My modifications - added crushed red pepper for a little zing and omitted the salt - the bulion was plenty salty for us. I usually cook for 2 so reduced the ingredients to two chops but left most other stuff the same. The rub is delicious and I would expect you might need more if you are making it for 6. But the pan drippings/sauce made a great gravy when cooked down a bit.

Artichoke & Spinach Dip Restaurant Style

Reviewed: Jan. 6, 2006
This is a really good dish - but soooooo rich. I made it basically per the instructions but think I would mix everything together to start with rather than trying to layer. Ended up mixing it all together after it was cooked since dipping to get all the ingredients involved dipping all the way to the bottom of the dish with many broken chips as the result. Mix it all and you can dip just the top - and get more than just cheese.

Lemon Garlic Tilapia

Reviewed: Dec. 26, 2005
Made this dish for Christmas dinner for a group of 5, three of whom were quasi vegitarians (they do eat fish). Used 6 fillets and wished I had used 10. All raved about the dish. I did spice it up just a little by adding oregano, crushed red pepper, dill weed, and cayenne pepper -just a pinch of each sprinkled over each fillet. I would have liked more of the pepper but everyone else thought it was "just right". The recipe lends itself to easy experimentation with different spices, though probably shouldn't use as many at one time as I did since you lose a lot of the distinctive taste of any one. All in all, an excellent recipe which will be made again and again.

Baked Spinach Artichoke Dip

Reviewed: Sep. 16, 2005
Wish I had read the reviews more closely. This does not remotely resemble a dip. Much too dry. Followed the recipe closely but used less parmesan cheese and part skim milk mozzarella. Can't believe this slight deviation would have caused the dryness. I really wonder if some ingredient is not missing from this recipe - like milk or sour cream or mayo or ???? In any case - will not be making this again.
