Whiskey Chicken

Reviewed: Jul. 20, 2005
I would recommend this to anyone, but I did "cheat" a little - my chicken breasts were frozen, so I dumped a tablespoon each of water, honey, and single malt scotch on them, crushed some small garlic cloves, and let them "marinate" in the refrigerator for a bit. I also used Johnny Walker (scotch) instead of bourbon, because that's what we had in the house. When I sauteed the chicken, I added the garlic that was in the marinade. And an extra tablespoon of brown sugar, and about 1/8 tsp cornstarch. It needs at least 15 minutes to simmer, I think. I thought this was fabulous served over yellow rice.

Roasted Brussels Sprouts

Reviewed: Jul. 20, 2005
I don't like Brussels sprouts usually, but this was super good. My mother was impressed! What more can you ask for??

Diane's Colcannon

Reviewed: Nov. 2, 2006
This was just okay. I enjoyed it, but I'm Irish and love potatoes and cabbage. My husband was just like, "Why in the world would you mess up mashed potatoes by putting cabbage in them?" It was a lot of work and no one raved over it.

Paprika Pork Chops

Reviewed: Nov. 10, 2006
I have to say the recipe by itself gets a four, but the way i cooked it gets a three! :) I'm not too good at broiling, so mine were overdone. Also, the topping has a decidedly orange color, which made my husband hope for a spicy dish. This had a good flavor, but be careful and do not use chops that are too thick or too thin (like I did). Also, I used the sauerkraut that has caraway seeds in it, nice touch.

Zucchini Casserole I

Reviewed: Nov. 22, 2006
I have to say that I didn't follow the recipe exactly - I halved it and subbed celery for carrots. Also I added the aforementioned pinch of garlic powder, and some leftover cheese on top. However, I thought this recipe was really good - you could tweak it by adding different veggies or herbs, and the addition of chicken or some other perhaps leftover meat would make this a main dish.

Microwave Ham

Reviewed: Nov. 22, 2006
So, I boiled the ham, which made it really tender. I was surprised. But the sauce wasn't really my cup of tea. It was certainly edible, but it really tasted like the three ingredients did not meld in any way. And it reminded be of barbecue sauce. My husband seemed to like it, the kids ate it... it was okay.

Baked Stuffed Winter Squash

Reviewed: Dec. 15, 2006
This was a lot of work, but worth it. I downsized the recipe for two squashes, and used one orange acorn and one yellow acorn. I also used ground turkey instead of pork, a mix of chopped turnip, carrot and garlic instead of celery. I subbed a small amount of almonds for the pecans, but the recipe would be fine without any nuts at all. I thought the raisins were important. I did not need to mash the squash - after I scooped it, it blended in perfectly . I did add a dash of salt and pepper, and used store-bought Italian breadcrumbs. I topped with cheese for the final bake. This recipe is very forgiving and you could really make lots of substitutions or additions depending on your tastes. My husband and I enjoyed it very much.

Indiana-Style Fried Cabbage

Reviewed: Apr. 12, 2007
I omitted the mushrooms and did not add any liquid (other than what was clinging to the vegetables). I only add about one tablespoon of butter. I Used about 1/2 cup of celery and one yellow, not green bell pepper. This should be glistening - if that seems greasy to you, then don't book with bacon grease! This is down-home cooking for sure. The best thing to do is fryt he bacon up whole, then save it to crumble over the cabbage at the end of cooking. This recipe needs a lot of salt, crushed red pepper, and maybe a dash of vinegar to make it sing.

Garlic Red Potatoes

Reviewed: Jun. 26, 2007
This would have been better if I had cooked it longer, or used less potatoes, or cut them up smaller. This was really my error - the dish probably deserves a four.

Honey Baked Chicken II

Reviewed: Jun. 26, 2007
This was very good. I changed the recipe as others suggested. Halved the butter, doubled the curry, and used Season-All instead of regular salt. I also used deli (spicy brown) mustard. The chicken was perfect and juicy. I used "pick of the chick" as sold in our supermarkets here and it was just right for two adults and two small children.

Creamy Potato Leek Soup II

Reviewed: Jun. 26, 2007
I thought it was just okay. It would be better with a different kind of pork. Maybe salt pork or ham hock instead of bacon? I don't know. A little bland and uninteresting.

Irresistible Irish Soda Bread

Reviewed: Jun. 26, 2007
I made it without the raisins. This was more like cake and less like bread. It was very tasty though, and moist, and easy.

Oat Crusted Fish

Reviewed: Jun. 26, 2007
It was more like 3.5... it would have been better if I had cooked it hotter maybe. Some of the coating fell off and the fish got a bit oily. The flavor is there though.

Butter Fried Parsnips

Reviewed: Jul. 13, 2007
Probably not the healthiest way to eat parsnips - but by far the best I have ever tasted. Makes me want to try it with turnips or rutabaga.

Sweet Potatoes 'n' Pears

Reviewed: Jul. 13, 2007
I give it five stars when my husband really likes it.... he's hard to impress. This was really good. A different way to serve yams - by the way, I used one of those large cans of sweet potatoes - a lot less work and it was still great.

Broiled Tilapia Parmesan

Reviewed: Jul. 13, 2007
Well, I didn't use the best fish in the world (cheap frozen tilapia fillets) but this was still awesome. The topping is that does it. It is tricky to get the fish broiled just perfectly while also making sure to crisp the topping. But this would work on just about any kind of fish. We really enjoyed it.

Ground Turkey Casserole

Reviewed: Jul. 17, 2007
This is not a very fancy dish, and probably not very healthy either( but why use low fat or fat free dairy? Ick.) - however, it is really not too shabby, would be amenable to tweaking, and I would serve it again.
