Basil Chicken Strips

Reviewed: Apr. 26, 2007
The taste is very lovely. We paired the strips with rice pilaf and mixed veggies. They were great as leftovers the next day as well.

Divine Summertime Chicken Sandwich

Reviewed: Apr. 26, 2007
I ha to cheat and tell my husband what was in these after he tried them, but they were great. We cheated and used whole grain sub rolls which we toasted on the flat grill. It was a perfect summer day out and this worked great with a glass of sweet tea. The leftovers were great as well. What a treat. You'd never guess it was cream cheese spread.

Valentine Meatballs

Reviewed: Sep. 23, 2007
These were amazing. Normally my meatballs turn out okay, but these finally got a thumbs up from my husband. I added a jar of baby food beef for moisture, just like the Ground Round does. Simply perfect.

Almond Orange Chicken

Reviewed: Sep. 25, 2007
I forgot the mustard which made it "too sweet with an unanticipated aftershock of spice" for my husband. I think it was a nice subtle sweet/spicy flavor. Mine thickened up nicely in about 5-7 minutes. I'm thinking about using it as a barbeque recipe without the cream, perhaps over a salad.

Hard Candy

Reviewed: Dec. 1, 2009
OMG, this is exactly how my grandfather made it every holiday season. He used to make red, green, white and yellow. Each got stored in a coffee can right next to the fruit leather and other dried fruits. My favorite was always wintergreen and anise.

Thai Basil Rolls with Hoisin-Peanut Sauce

Reviewed: Oct. 1, 2007
Thai Basil (the variety of basil) is used in this Vietnamese dish. I thought the dipping sauce was wonderful, but we like peanut butter so maybe thats it. I skipped the roasted peanuts and just used chunky peanut butter instead, Jiff is made with real roasted peanuts right? We used only the pork as we don't eat shrimp but added carrot slivers and onion to compensate a bit.

Microwave Lemon Curd

Reviewed: Jun. 1, 2011
I found this on a food blog and decided it was worth a try. I've had issues with curd before but this one is almost foolproof. The biggest issue is not overcooking it. I average 2-3minutes of cook time in my microwave. After it bubbles I use 30second intervals to make sure its not too cooked. It also makes a wonderful lime curd. I tried a pink grapefruit curd but it wasn't quite tart enough. Made with local real butter and fresh eggs from chickens its hard to not eat the entire jar.

Simple Scones

Reviewed: Jul. 4, 2011
This was a bit dry, but close to what I was looking for. I omitted everything except the sugar sprinkled on top (used decorative sugar for texture). That fact alone gets it a 5. Swapped out some of the plain white flour for wheat as well. Served with homemade jams/jellies and faux clotted cream and tea.

Teriyaki Finger Steaks

Reviewed: Nov. 10, 2006
Irrisistable taste and flavor. I made enough for three and there was none left after my husband and I finished dinner. Perfect with rice and veggies.

Chicken Breasts with Herb Basting Sauce

Reviewed: Nov. 29, 2006
This is my new favorite chicken recipe. The whole house smelled good enough to eat, and the chicken is beautiful with te herbs covering it. Served over rice with steamed veggies, plates were spotless and leftovers vanished in lunches.

Cajun Chicken Pasta

Reviewed: Nov. 29, 2006
Just like the restaurants. My husband marked this one for me to make and loved it. He thought I had cheated and ordered take-out. Very creamy and flavorful. I didn't have a problem with the chicken being bland, and the leftovers vanished in his lunch the next day.

Vietnamese Fresh Spring Rolls

Reviewed: Oct. 1, 2007
Simply amazing. The recommendation for sauce thats two parts hoisin to one part chunky peanut butter was superb. My husband loved it, even without the shrimp(we don't eat shrimp). He assumed it had pork but never missed it with the sauce to eat along with the rolls.

Easiest Focaccia Recipe

Reviewed: Jan. 21, 2009
I hate yeasted bread recipes since I have no bread machine and no stand mixer. This was perfect and came out alot thicker than I anticipated. Even being in Maine with the house being a tad chilly this rose nicely (with some help from the warm mist humidifier) and came out beautifully. I added Italian herbs to the dough and sprinkled the top with the same, sea salt and some freshly shredded Parmesean/Asiago/Romano cheese. Perfection.

Baklava

Reviewed: Oct. 1, 2009
I went to college with Greeks, live down the street from an amazing Greek pizza parlor and this is the good stuff. The only changes I've made are different nuts or some citrus zest r a hint of nutmeg. It could go for a lower temp or less time, just keep an eye on it. I normally make sure the nuts are nice and small, a spice grinder will help there. I did make a different version for a wedding shower once. Added lime zest to the sauce and used crystallized ginger in the filling with almonds. Very different but good.

Best Ever Cheese Fudge

Reviewed: Dec. 20, 2009
I first found this recipe published in the Farmer's Almanac. It seemed like the best thing in the world. Fudge for taste and cheese. The one I have calls for less of everything and can be made in a large pyrex mixing bowl in the microwave. I make it every year and it never fails to impress people. I have added nuts, candy cane pieces, dried fruit and sprinkles to make it fancy. As mentioned it can need more sugar, but once you get used to the recipe you won't be able to mess it up. Pretty foolproof and you shouldn't be able to taste the cheese.

Cornbread Stuffed Chicken

Reviewed: Nov. 29, 2006
When you read this recipe you wonder how it could possibly be any good. And then you taste it. Wow! Unusual stuffing is moist and flavorful, potatoes are delicious, and the chicken makes a great comliment to finish off the meal. When I told my husband we needed ricotta for stuffing he thought I was nuts. He doesn't think that any more.

Easy and Fun Peanut Butter Balls

Reviewed: Jun. 6, 2007
Finally a recipe with the name peanut butter balls thats the real thing. I lost my recipe box at Christmas a couple years ago and needed to check the proportions on this recipe before I made them again. Wheat germ and coconut are definitely the things we rolled them in back in the 80's when I was a kid. They are great frozen as well. If freezing make them a bit bigger and server before solid throughout. Chunky peanut butter adds texture as well. Love them.

Shemakes Instant Chai Tea

Reviewed: Nov. 29, 2006
Chai is my preferred drink, even over coffee which I have quite a palate for. I was so excited to find a good instant mix recipe to give a go. I was unable to find vanilla powder so I switched out the powdered milk for french vanilla creamer, omitted the cardamon after seeing the price ($15 a 2oz jar) and added some black pepper (which is the trademark of a good chai). This will be going as gifts this hliday season. And once my husband tries it there will probably be a BIG jar going to work. He hates most drinks, but adores chai as well. Working in security he doesn't usually get to steep his tea and drink it hot, but this will fix that problem and have enough kick to keep him happy.

Chicken Honey Nut Stir Fry

Reviewed: May 5, 2007
This was great. Smells much more overpowering than it tastes. I was worried it would be so strong tasting it would be awful, but its just perfect.

4-H Corn Special

Reviewed: Nov. 10, 2006
My husband loved it and can't wait to take it in his lunch Monday as leftovers. I found it a bit bland and will probably double the seasoning next time. Definitely a good dish.
