Super Summer Kale Salad

Reviewed: May 27, 2014
For the folks who find traditional kale bitter, try using lacinato kale (also known as Tuscan kale). It is much better suited to be eaten raw and stands up well to dressing. I was able to find it at Whole Foods Market. If it still isn't palatable for you, baby spinach and arugula mixed would make a wonderful substitute.

Vanilla Glaze

Reviewed: Nov. 25, 2010
I am rating this a 5 based on other folks suggestions: I used 1 tbs. of butter, 1 tbs. of corn syrup and 1 tsp. of vanilla. I omitted the salt. I started with 1 tbs. of milk and added more until I got the consistency I wanted (I would guess a total of 2 tbs of milk). I also sifted the confectioners sugar prior to adding the other ingredients to ensure there were no lumps. It came out beautifully - glossy and rich.

Real Mississippi Mud Pie

Reviewed: Nov. 27, 2009
This was absolutely fabulous. I followed others recommendations and added 1 tsp. of instant coffee, 1 tsp. of vanilla and dusted the nuts with flour. For my own personal taste I used (4) squares of semi-sweet chocolate and (2) squares of bittersweet. It was dark, rich and decadent. I also served it with fresh sweetened whipped cream. Will be making it with pecans today, may try it with macadamia nuts too.

Skillet Chicken Cordon Bleu

Reviewed: Apr. 28, 2008
This was fabulous although I tweaked it some - I dredged the chicken in Italian bread crumbs before cooking and browned in 1/2 c. butter (draining off when chicken was browned.) I added 1/2 c. white wine, and 2-3 tbs. of heavy cream which added richness to the sauce. I also added a can of sliced mushrooms. I put the chicken in a casserole dish, poured the sauce over it and instead of adding the Swiss cheese to the sauce I sprinkled it on top and finished in a 325 oven for about 15 minutes. My daughter and her friend raved about how good it was. It's definitely a keeper for me!

Breakfast Casserole I

Reviewed: Mar. 12, 2008
This was a great, easy and tasty recipe. I used Gruyere cheese instead of cheddar, 1/2 and 1/2 instead of milk and added some caramelized shallots for extra flavor. I also added about 1/2 cup of mayo to the egg mixture. Certainly not low in fat or calories but worth it for the taste and texture. I brought it to a brunch and everyone raved.

Curried Coconut Chicken

Reviewed: Aug. 21, 2007
I think this recipe is terrific although I tweaked a little bit - I added the juice of 1/2 lime and also added about 1/3 - 1/2 c. of chopped cilantro and simmered for about 30 minutes. I used fresh chicken tenders and did not cut into chunks, I think the presentation looked better. Served over Basmati rice pilaf and it was fabulous.
