Shepherd's Pie

Reviewed: May 1, 2012
I added worcheshire sauce, steak seasoning, garlic salt, pepper and kosher salt and still, this was rather bland. I used homemade mashed potatoes and also added a little shredded cheddar cheese to the top. If I make this again, I'll add sauteed celery, and try to add seasoning to the mashed potatoes for flavor. However, it was fast and my 10 year old loved it. Good comfort food, just needs more flavor.

Bavarian Pot Roast

Reviewed: May 1, 2012
This roast did not have any flavor, even adding seasoning to the flour and meat before browning.

Hot Sausage Links and Beans Casserole

Reviewed: Apr. 2, 2012
Based on reviewers comments about the potatoes, I parboiled sliced potatoes (about 1" thick) before layering them in the casserole dish. I used leftover grilled hotdogs (thought the smokey flavor would be nice), and added diced red bell pepper and Tony Chachere's seasoning to the onion mixture. Added the cheddar cheese with 10 minutes left. Big hit with the kids on a rainy day! Next time, I will add the worcheshire to add some additional kick.

Sausage Barley Soup

Reviewed: Mar. 17, 2012
Wonderful soup. I tripled the barley. Used turkey sausage and added spice with lots of ground red pepper flakes and pepper. Used vegetable stock concentrate (which is high in sodium) so it was a little salty (but my mistake for not using vegetable broth). I will make this often. Wonderful cold weather hearty soup. Oh - used the crock pot for ease. Thanks for the recipe.

Roast Beef with Caramelized Onions

Reviewed: Jul. 23, 2011
The basic meat was very good, but the onions did not really caramelize. Instead, they cooked and became soft. If you truly want caramelized onions, I'd still put onions in the pan (to flavor the meat), but caramelize more on the cooktop. Made this at the beach and it was easy, delicious, and low maintenance.

Spice Cookies with Crystallized Ginger

Reviewed: Dec. 30, 2008
I give this recipe 4.5 stars. Flavor was amazing. Not sure I loved the crystallized ginger as I could not chop it fine enough to incorporate into the cookie the way I thought it should. In the future, I will likely use minced ginger to stay away from a fruit bread concept. Also, all of my cookies flattened on the sheet (probably let the sheet get too hot or the butter too warm before blending) and I had problems with the sugary glass pressing process, so I skipped it. All that said, the flavor was amazing. The cookies were soft and delicious. They do not harden over time. And, they got rave reviews from all of my foodie friends.

Dill Lemon Chicken Pasta Salad

Reviewed: Aug. 4, 2008
Very good recipe to feed a crowd. Served at a baby shower, on two large platters, on bed of lettuce with quartered bright red tomatoes for garnish. Place extra dressing on side. Suggestions: add shredded white cheddar cheese and really bump up the dill. Couldn't find lemon penne, so I poured lemon pepper seasoning in the water, when boiling the pasta. I grilled bone-in chicken breasts, loaded with the lemon pepper seasoning. Still not enough lemon flavor, so I would recommend adding the seasoning to the dressing. If you make this the day before, be prepared to add more dressing, as the pasta soaks it up in the fridge. Got rave reviews and presented very elegantly!

Mirliton

Reviewed: Dec. 11, 2006
This is wonderful. I doubled the recipe and set half aside to freeze for a rainy day. Needs more bread crumbs, but that is a personal preference.

Butternut Squash Bisque

Reviewed: Oct. 30, 2006
As others have said, this bisque was surprisingly good. Buy the pre-cut and peeled squash. If you don't, use gloves to cut and peel or your skin will develop a squash film that is hard to remove and quite drying. Believing that all things Fall should be roasted, I cubed and roasted all my veggies and this added an extra dimension to the bisque. With adjustments noted by others, this is extremely WeightWatcher friendly.

Strawberry Bread

Reviewed: Oct. 30, 2006
I was disappointed with this bread. It was rather bland and, even though I followed other's suggestions to bake it longer, could not get the right consistency.

Zucchini Risotto

Reviewed: Aug. 2, 2005
risotto is intimidating because of all of the stirring. As much as I cook, I still cannot get rice to work, so how was I going to make something as complicated as risotto? Thanks to this recipe (my inaugural attempt), my risotto was wonderful. Being a WeightWatcher girl, I did not add the parmesan cheese to the top (didn't miss it) and added lots of veggies. I too rough chopped my zucchini, and added chopped fresh broccoli and sweet peas (at the very end). I'd recommend carrots too. One happy note: I did not "stir continuously". Instead I used a very good pot and stirred "quite often", until the end. When the mixture thickened, I "stirred continuously" and voila! No blob. Thanks for the great recipe.
