Robin's Best Ever Hummus

Reviewed: Sep. 13, 2010
Since I'm making my second batch in less than 24 hours, I guess I have to give this 5 stars! :-) Like others, I used only 1t of salt, and think that's plenty. I was skeptical about the honey, but find that it really brings out the flavor of the tahini. Give it a shot!

Pork Chops with Apples, Onions, and Sweet Potatoes

Reviewed: Oct. 20, 2007
Just didn't do it for me. There was too much stuff to not enough meat (and I'm not a real meat lover). It sounded good, but didn't turn out well at all. My hubby didn't mind it, though, so maybe it's just me.

Dad's Excellent Scallops

Reviewed: Sep. 16, 2007
I really wanted to like this recipe, but it just didn't do it for us. I used the sage leaves, but the prosciuto was still overpoweringly salty. (And we're a salt-loving family!) I'll have to try again with a different type and see if that improves it.

Fennel in Wine and Honey

Reviewed: Sep. 16, 2007
I have never been a fan of anise, so I was a little worried about this recipe, but WOW! The anise flavor tones down as the fennel cooks, and the wine, honey, and mustard seed make a marvelous sauce. I cooked the dish a little hotter than suggested (I was in a hurry) and the fennel sort of caramelized on the bottom of the pan. De-lish! Hubby and I ate most of it with dinner last night, and I had the rest for breakfast this morning. We'll definitely be making it again! The only down side... I now have a pile of fennel tops that I don't know what to do with. Guess it's time for more research!

Grilled Eggplant, Tomato and Goat Cheese

Reviewed: Sep. 5, 2007
Make sure you buy tomatos that are the same diameter as your eggplant. Mine were too small and things got messy! Also, the flovor wasn't as rich as I had expected, but think that was because I used a cheap goat cheese. (It was all the store had.) I'll try it again with a (hopefully) higher quality brand and see if the flavor improves.

Blueberry Spinach Salad

Reviewed: Sep. 5, 2007
Yummy! I used candied pecans (that's what the store had) and only half the dressing. My gang ate it up and asked me to make it again the next night!
