Rigatoni with Duck, Onions, Apple and Red Wine

Reviewed: Dec. 15, 2014
Very good! We really enjoyed this dish. It didn't blow me away (hence 4 stars), but it was definitely good. It's not pretty, but has a very nice flavor. I thought the wine would be overpowering - it wasn't. I did forget the parsley, but doubt that made a difference, and I used penne since my grocery didn't carry Barilla rigatoni. My only real complaint was difficult timing with things cooking in 3 different pans. Another winner from Barilla!

Cranberry Orange Tea Bread

Reviewed: Nov. 3, 2014
We enjoyed this bread, but for us the orange was a bit strong. I would make a few adjustments next time.

Lentil and Sausage Soup

Reviewed: Nov. 2, 2014
Yum! I followed the advice of others (Bakingnana) and used the full package of sausage (18-19oz) and all chicken broth (not water). It was a huge hit with my husband and the full house of surprise guests. We will make this soup again & again!

Honey Lemon Glazed Salmon with Spinach Saute

Reviewed: Nov. 1, 2014
This was Wonderful! I followed the recipe to the letter. The only tiny issue is we wanted more of the spinach! Without the spinach, we found the salmon needed a little oomph, but when eaten together (as the recipe intends) it was really fantastic! Thank you, Mazola!

Salisbury Steak with Mushrooms

Reviewed: Sep. 28, 2014
Yum! Perfect comfort food. My gravy needed a little extra seasoning, but other than that, a great recipe as is.

Wavy Lasagna with Meat Sauce, Fresh Ricotta and Spinach

Reviewed: Jul. 20, 2014
We enjoyed this simple, basic lasagna. I did add 12oz. of Italian sausage, browned, as we're real meat-eaters. I also needed additional sauce, about another half jar. The Barilla sauce is a little sweet for my taste, so next time, I would probably add additional seasoning - garlic, onion powder and some crushed red pepper flakes.

Roasted Loin of Pork with Pan Gravy

Reviewed: Jul. 12, 2014
We absolutely LOVED this! I brined my roast first then applied the rub per instructions and let it sit overnight in the fridge. It is a little spicy, which we thought was great, but you might cut down on the cayenne if that's not your thing. The gravy was SO delicious! This recipe is absolutely a keeper!

Whole Grain Spaghetti with Cherry Tomatoes, Marinated Chicken Breast and Pesto

Reviewed: Jul. 1, 2014
This was great! I had already marinated & grilled chicken breasts with garlic & herbs the night before, so this came together in no time! I'd never tried whole grain pasta & to be honest, I couldn't taste any difference (Yay, Barilla!). This dish will be made many more times in our house.

Bacon and Cheddar Stuffed Mushrooms

Reviewed: Apr. 6, 2014
These are great. I have made them replacing the bacon with 1/4lb Italian sausage (uncooked)and baked for 25min. They turned out excellent as well.

Amazing Muffin Cups

Reviewed: Apr. 6, 2014
De-lish! And so pretty! I loved the potatoes on the bottom. Next time I might cook the potatoes a little longer just to crisp them up some. I did use about half the cheese called for, but that's personal preference. We will definitely make these again.

Mom's Secret Chocolate Pie Recipe

Reviewed: Mar. 21, 2014
Yummy! This was so easy & we LOVED it! It's very similar to a recipe we've done in a casserole dish for years. I swirled a little caramel sauce on top, honestly, just to make it pretty, but everyone thought it added a very nice compliment to the chocolate. This is a keeper! Thanks, sjryan! Youre Mom's a genius!

Sweet and Spicy Salmon with Grapefruit Salsa

Reviewed: Mar. 2, 2014
My salmon was cooked perfectly at 20 minutes. The grapefruit salsa was a little overpowering but did complement the fish well. Without the salsa, coating on the fish was too sweet for my liking.

Original Irish Cream

Reviewed: Dec. 24, 2013
Yum! This is delicious! And my friends have devoured it! Per some reviewers suggestions, I did 1/2 heavy cream & 1/2 half 'n half, cut the almond extract to 1/2 tsp and added 1/2 tsp coconut extract. You can really adjust the whiskey (I used Bushmill's) to suit your tastes. For us, we decided about 1 1/2 cups was perfect. Thanks for the recipe - I'm off to make more now!

Salted Caramel Sauce

Reviewed: Dec. 24, 2013
Delicious! Although not as easy as I'd hoped. Like many others, my first batch burned - I didn't know that at first, but it did taste a little bitter. So I tried again, lower & slower. And Eventually I got the butter & cream incorporated - with NO bitter taste. (Yay, me!) So that's your clue - if it's bitter, you burned it. Sorry. Thanks, Chef John for making me get back on that horse!

Jazzy Green Bean Casserole

Reviewed: Nov. 25, 2013
A nice change - not quite your standard Green Bean Casserole, also not the same Shoepeg Corn & Green Bean Casserole I'm used to. I did use yellow corn (frozen) because it's what I had on hand and I used fresh onion sautéed in a little butter (again, because I had it & needed to use it up). I also replaced half the cheddar with pepper-jack cheese. Everyone enjoyed it!

Chicken With Mushrooms

Reviewed: Nov. 20, 2013
Quite tasty! I used half white mushrooms & half baby bellas. Sautéed them with a bit of onion & garlic and added a splash of white wine before layering with the chicken. And I thickened the sauce afterward with some corn starch. Not certain I'll make it again as I have a similar recipe that's all done in one skillet, but it was good enough that even leftovers were gobbled up quickly.

Sara's Iced Coffee

Reviewed: Oct. 30, 2013
Rather than mixing the sugar with boiling water, I used SPLENDA granulated (which dissolves perfectly) and used milk in place of the cream (I'm sure cream would have been More Delicious). So easy & a great morning pick-me-up for us "non-coffee" drinkers.

Italian Sausage Market Meatloaf

Reviewed: Oct. 14, 2013
This meatloaf was very tasty - a nice change from the usual. I think next time I might cook it a little longer, as it was very "wet" and difficult to hold together and I would prefer the onions cooked a little more.

Ham, Potato and Broccoli Casserole

Reviewed: Oct. 14, 2013
We found this to be just OK. Per other reviewers, I added seasonings (onion powder, garlic, etc.). I added additional cheeses & I pre-cooked frozen Steak Fries. I didn't really care for the texture of the fries on the bottom. I might like it better if everything was mixed together.
