Roast Chicken with Rosemary

Reviewed: Feb. 18, 2009
Bottom Line... For the newer cooks, this is the place to start... There are sooo many variables you can try... I use this recipe all the time... With Thyme instead of Rosemary... And those onions? Make sure there in your "Day after Chicken Soup"

Blueberry Pie

Reviewed: Jul. 26, 2006
Fine recipe. I use store crust and fresh berries which are in season here in Maine. A lot of talk about thickening the pie in the other reviews. I always thought blueberry pie was supposed to be runny, but if you want to thicken it, don't add more cornstarch or flour or whatever... add two tablespoons of tapioca. In the words of one old Maine pie baker..."A little tapioca goes a long way."

Cucumber and Tomato Salad

Reviewed: Jul. 19, 2006
Lets face it, this recipe like all salad recipes is very flexible, but this is a good basic dish. Keep it cold. Dressing seems to come up often in the other reviews. Dressing is as you like it, if you want zip and pizazz... go to Zesty Italian, if you want it subtle and clean, go with the Greek. If you go with the original recipe the only thing that disappointed me was I chose a subtle balsamic and would have liked a little more pep. I liked the Tofu and I liked the Kidney Beans, but understand if you want to go with Feta. Thank you, a good clean starter, with room to move

Portobello Mushroom Burgers

Reviewed: Jun. 3, 2006
Honestly, as a real meat lover, I could replace hamburger forever with grilled portobello! The taste is beyond belief. Simplified things a bit, as some men might. Just used a dish of olive oil, added a dash of salt and pepper and brushed it on. I also did the same to 1/2" thick cuts of onion and grilled them side by side (onions a little longer of course). When they were both finished, I topped the mushroom with the thick cut onion and topped that with provilone. What a surpise I am telling you. Good luck and Thank you!

Corned Beef and Cabbage II

Reviewed: Mar. 19, 2006
Well done. I just was not in the mood to boil this St. Patricks, so I gave this one a try. I tucked everything in very tightly within the foil, and then packed it into a oven bag. Deep rich flavor, my family loved it. The apples added to the cabbage really help set off the salty flavor of the corned beef, and in its own way adds a uniquely Irish-American quality to the meal. A great new tradition for my Irish (plus plenty of others)-American home.

Pork Chops with Blue Cheese Gravy

Reviewed: Mar. 14, 2006
Simple and rich. No reason not to give this 5 stars. Make sure you thicken the sauce and you can use it with chicken, salad or whatever you wish. I had a busy day, so I turned to this one to please the family. Did the trick. I added just a little extra blue cheese so I could call it a sinful, then sprinkled some more on top.

Ganache II

Reviewed: Jan. 18, 2006
This worked very well with my cake. I used semi-sweet and bitter-sweet (60%) for two different layers of the cake and was very pleased with both. I let it cool just moments before going nuts draining it into the layers. Raves.

Balsamic-Glazed Salmon Fillets

Reviewed: Dec. 30, 2005
This is a very good simple recipe. If you concentrate on the honey, you get an almost caramelized salmon. I used about 1 1/2 tablespoons of honey and honey dijon to sweeten the balsamic. This produced a very sweet dish. Watch the cooking time for dry out. Because of my cut I had to increase cooking and biast. Very sweet and enjoyable product. Thank you.

Great basic. Tripled the ginger, cinnamon, and clove. 1/2 cup of apple sauce. Rest as is with whip cream. Next time, I might try the darkest molasses I can find. Unsalted butter please.
