White Chocolate Fruit Tart

Reviewed: Dec. 30, 2007
This was amazing!!! I made it for Christmas and even with all the other food available, everyone wanted this. I used a 10 inch springform pan, which worked perfect. After reading reviews, I didn't bother with the glaze and used pineapple, raspberrys, mandarin oranges and kiwi. I will definitely make this again!

Cheese Filled Triangles

Reviewed: May 4, 2003
These tasted great but definitely were time consuming. I made them for a baby shower and wish I had brought more, as they were gone immediatley. I ended up spraying the triangles with butter flavored Pam, as it was much faster and didn't change the outcome at all.

Absolutely The Best Shrimp Scampi

Reviewed: Feb. 11, 2010
YUM!!! I followed most of the directions. I only used one pound of shrimp, since we actually made this for two but I kept the other ingredients the same. I didn't cook the shrimp for 5 mins, probably closer to 3, since 5 mins seemed like a lot. I added the white wine and not the brandy and didn't bother putting it under the broiler. I'm not sure what that adds. I served over whole wheat linguine (added a bit of olive oil over it first) and topped with some crushed red pepper and fresh parmesan. Not too time consuming and very tasty. We will definitely add this to our regular rotation!

Butternut and Acorn Squash Soup

Reviewed: Jan. 13, 2011
Loved this soup!! I used less brown sugar, as others recommended and added quite a bit of cayenne pepper. I also realized I did something different, not meaning to. I had a red pepper that I bought for another recipe and in the directions for this recipe, when it said pepper, I was thinking the red pepper. So, I just threw the red pepper in the blender with everything else. I actually had commented to my boyfriend on the red pepper taste and it wasn't until writing this review that I realized I added an ingredient that wasn't listed. Try adding it, you won't be disappointed!

Split Pea Soup

Reviewed: Oct. 29, 2007
YUM!!! I added everything to my crockpot and cooked on high for 5 hours. I used 1 pint water and 1 pint chicken stock, an apple smoked ham steak, one potato, one onion and carrots. I think the crockpot must keep it from getting too thick b/c I'm surprised that people had issues with the thickness. I took out the ham and blended it all with a stick blender. I will definitely make this again, as it was so easy!

Muesli

Reviewed: Apr. 1, 2007
I now keep this on hand and often add other ingrediants as I buy them, such as craisins, pecans, hazelnuts, etc. But otherwise, the ingrediants that are suggested are what I've used. I eat with lactose-free milk but would think it would be very good with yogurt.

Classic Peanut Butter Cookies

Reviewed: Dec. 11, 2005
This were very good. I added about 1/2 cup more crunchy peanut butter based on past reviews. I would definitely add at least that again, if not more and cut down the butter about 1/4 cup.

Boiled Chicken

Reviewed: Jun. 15, 2005
Yep, this was perfect! I boiled split chicken breast which promptly allowed the meat to fall off the bone. I then used the chicken in my own curried chicken salad.

Grilled Jalapeno Poppers

Reviewed: Oct. 11, 2011
I'm rating this a 5 b/c of the taste but I definitely had issues with it. I some by cutting in 1/2 and others as the recipes states but either way, the bacon was an issue. I cut the slices in half, which makes sense b/c a full slice would be too much. But it didn't cover the entire surface of the cheese area and sometimes the cheese dripped into the fire. I also didn't use toothpicks, which I will have to try next time. As my boyfriend was grilling them at our tailgating party, I was taking the bacon off of them since it was causing problems. He just fried the bacon next to the peppers and people grabbed a slice with a popper. I have some leftover cheese mixture which I'm going to use to make some more but put them in the oven. The taste was fantastic and everyone still loved them, regardless of the mess!

Butternut Squash Fries

Reviewed: Mar. 14, 2011
These taste better to me than sweet potato fries. I bought a 1/2 squash already peeled and seeded, which makes this much quicker. Once cut up, I spread them on a baking sheet and added garlic powder, cumin and crushed red pepper. I baked at 425 for 40 minutes, flipping once. I overcooked them or possibly cut too thin. These are going to be my new go to when I want french fries!

Salmon with Brown Sugar Glaze

Reviewed: Jan. 30, 2011
Honestly, this could not have been any easier and it tasted so good! I broiled it on top of tin foil, so clean up was a cinch!

Slow Cooker Beef Stew IV

Reviewed: Dec. 21, 2010
I didn't saute anything, just threw it all in the crockpot. I added the meat first and mixed the flour on top. I also used two cups of beef broth instead of water. It was perfect and easy!

Grain and Nut Whole Wheat Pancakes

Reviewed: Feb. 7, 2010
This is my 2nd time making these. The batter was thicker this time, so I'm not sure what modifications I made the first time around. I'm not usually a pancake person but these were fantastic. It makes a lot!! I made a bunch and stored them in the fridge and would bring two to work for a mid-afternoon snack w/ peanut butter (didn't even heat up). These are great if you're a runner and need something quick to get your energy back. I will never make any other kind again!

Apple Crisp II

Reviewed: Sep. 25, 2005
This could've been better if I had followed directions. I didn't peel my apples, trying to keep a little fiber in the dish but the peels didn't soften. I also used slow cooking oats because that's what I had and it didn't meld as well with the rest of the "crisp".

Marinated Flank Steak

Reviewed: Jan. 3, 2015
I followed the recipe exactly, with the exception of using olive oil instead of vegetable oil, which we never use. I marinated for at least 6 hours and then broiled for 4 minutes on each side. Next time, I would broil a minute less on each side, depending on the thickness. I thought this was very tasty and if marinated the night before, very easy for a weeknight supper.

Thai Chicken with Basil Stir Fry

Reviewed: Apr. 30, 2014
YUM!! I followed the recipe but didn't follow the amounts being measured. I used two large chicken breasts. Let it them cook a bit in the coconut milk before adding 1 red pepper and asparagus, as well as some red pepper. I served it over cauliflower mash.
