Butter Flaky Pie Crust

Reviewed: Jun. 15, 2006
Easily the most flavorful pie crust I've ever made, browns up nicely and has a wonderful texture! Can't miss! Instead of doing it the old fashioned (laborious) way I just put the flour, salt & butter into my stand mixer w/the heavy stirrer attachment on low & once crumbly added the ice water a tablespoon at a time until just right, formed a ball by hand and then off to the fridge it went in saran wrap. Rolls out nicely, minimal separation at the ends, a lovely consistency to work with.

Turkey Pot Pie I

Reviewed: Jun. 15, 2006
Good flavor but no sauce to speak of which brought gripes from my boyfriend, we had leftovers plus extra filling so last night I carefully scooped out the filling from the leftover pie into a large sauce pot, added the extra filling I had set aside and stirred in a can of family sized Campbell's cream of chicken soup (w/enough milk to bring the whole lot to the right consistency) heated it through and served it over the warmed pie crust -that did the trick - it was delicious and tasted even better than the pies from the famous Chicken Pie Shop of San Diego. Definitely add the soup - it makes this recipe perfect and earns it that 5th star. I also used the flaky butter crust, it was a perfect compliment and had the best flavor of any crust I've ever made.

Baked Havarti Chicken

Reviewed: May 31, 2006
This was fantastic! Instead of using store bought Italian dressing I made the Betty Crocker version from my cookbook and marinated the chicken in that. We loved this dish - will make over & over again. I served it over white rice w/chicken base, a little oregano, garlic & chopped onions on the side, it was a perfect compliment.

Rib Eye Steaks with a Soy and Ginger Marinade

Reviewed: Apr. 11, 2006
One of the better marinades for steak I've tried, usually ribeye stands alone no matter what you do with it but this was a tasty change - we both loved it. I used Stone Pale Ale for the beer.

Grilled 'Fusion' Pork Chops

Reviewed: Apr. 11, 2006
Didn't have garlic or ginger paste so I used minced fresh garlic & shredded fresh ginger + fresh squeezed lime juice, etc. Good flavor, moist and delicious, will make again.

Pork Chops Stuffed with Smoked Gouda and Bacon

Reviewed: Apr. 11, 2006
Delicous! The smoked Gouda & bacon add an interesting depth of flavor ~ we used cilantro instead of parseley as neither of us like parsely and it was fantastic! Will make again!

Mahogany Chicken Wings

Reviewed: Apr. 11, 2006
Didn't have wings so used boneless skinless thighs and marinated for 10 minutes. I used Kikoman chili-garlic sauce, all other ingredients as listed. I poured the remaining marinade over the chicken as I turned it, I cooked the thighs for a total of 30 minutes. The result was moist and delicious - we absolutely loved it! (served w/white rice and a little of the juice poured over) Will make again and again! Do try this recipe!!!

Cranberry Chicken I

Reviewed: Apr. 6, 2006
Tony really liked this but I thought that although tasty it was a bit blah. Served w/stuffing, overall it was a nice dinner but nothing to write home about.

Irish Stew

Reviewed: Mar. 17, 2006
Good but not spectacular. Lamb is a bit gamey in this recipe but it was good comfort food overall.

Aussie Chicken

Reviewed: Mar. 17, 2006
If I could give this 10 stars I would, even my boyfriend (who hates anything honey) LOVED it. He actually thought it was a hollandaise sauce! Quick trip to a heart attack but worth it!

Sage Pork Chops

Reviewed: Mar. 14, 2006
I must've done something wrong with this even though I followed it to the letter, chops were dry and tasteless. I think Tony was being kind when he said they were okay. I may try again for benefit of the doubt.

Leslie's Strawberry Breakfast Chops

Reviewed: Mar. 13, 2006
I didn't have any strawberry preserves so I used some of my Mom's homemade plum jelly and it was excellent! My boyfriend loved it so much he sopped up every last drop with the Pilsbury Grands biscuits I served with it and he doesn't even LIKE horseradish!

Cardamom Chicken with Salt and Pepper Crust

Reviewed: Mar. 13, 2006
I've never tried Cardamom before and was shocked at the price (I found it anywhere from $8 to $18 per bottle!) but went ahead & tried it for something new. My boyfriend wasn't nuts about it but did like it and wouldn't mind having it again (hey, at least he tried it!), I thought it was delicious!

Spinach Stuffed Chicken Breast

Reviewed: Mar. 13, 2006
This was indeed messy but really only during preparation. My boyfriend liked the stuffing so much he ate what was left over as a dip w/Ritz crackers. I thought it was good but lacked zing ~ my honey just loved it though.

Pork Chops with Blue Cheese Gravy

Reviewed: Mar. 6, 2006
After Tony got over the idea that I was trying to kill him when he saw the blue cheese as I was adding it he loved it, I enjoyed it as well, very different, tangy and delicious! I did add minced garlic to my olive oil/butter to fry the chops at first.

Chicken Cordon Bleu II

Reviewed: Mar. 6, 2006
I noticed someone had said they needed help removing the toothpicks. I use the metal turkey stays that come in the little trussing packages at the store - they look like giant needles w/big eyes. They are SO easy to remove and are longer than toothpicks so they secure the meat better too.

Roasted Green Chile Stew

Reviewed: Mar. 3, 2006
You could get away with using only 1lb of the chilies - I didn't care for this dish very much, my honey liked it but he too thought there were too many chilies even for something called green chile stew... I thought it was bland - go figure.

Pork Chops with Fresh Tomato, Onion, Garlic, and Feta

Reviewed: Mar. 3, 2006
This one is hard to screw up, I'd thought I had overcooked the pork but it was still moist & tender, you could get away with half an onion though as we had lots leftover after the fact. I really enjoyed it and especially liked the Feta. My honey didn't care for the Feta but other than that he liked it and said he would enjoy having it for dinner again.
