Green Tea Mint Cookies

Reviewed: Dec. 11, 2005
I like this cookie. Using pure green tea bags (I hate lemon grass), I found the flavor combination just right. However, the cookies were too dry for me. I'll make these again, but might try to tweak it into a moister cookie.. and I may try it with lemon instead of mint. My taste testers didn't like the mint... but they don't like mint tea.

Smoked Sausage in Mushroom Wine Gravy

Reviewed: Jan. 26, 2006
Easy and tasty. We served it over rice. The only change to the recipe is that we let everything simmer a little longer due to our sausage being salty. Will definately whip this up again.

Red Slush Punch

Reviewed: May 10, 2006
Used this at a retirement party, it was a hit. Only change was to use half of the sugar... also ended up using a mallet to break up the frozen part before putting it in the punch bowl.

Zesty Chicken and Potatoes

Reviewed: Oct. 17, 2006
Very easy, I found the cooking time to be perfect and the potatoes come out tasty. The chicken was boring, but just fine.

Alfredo Light

Reviewed: Mar. 21, 2007
Did this with short notice, so I used onion and garlic powders and added a couple dashes of cayenne and a splash of white wine. It was absolutely delicious on cheese tortellini and shrimp. We found it to be very flavorful and will definitely use it again, we'll try scallops next.

Spaghetti with Garlic, Herbs, and Tomatoes

Reviewed: Jun. 5, 2007
Used angel hair, fresh tomato, and a little less basil because that is what I had on hand. Absolutely delicious.

Herb Roasted Pork

Reviewed: Mar. 10, 2008
Easy and delicious. I managed to screw up a couple times: I used poultry seasoning once and italian seasoning another time because I did not have anything else. One time I didn't glaze it during baking, but only after it was all done. It still turned out delicious and moist every time. However, I've never bothered with a roast larger than 2 pounds and I bake it to an internal temperature just shy of 170 degrees because I like my pork roast well done.

Nutty Wild Rice Salad with Kiwifruit and Red Grapes

Reviewed: Jul. 30, 2008
I followed the directions exactly, I used real lemon juice... it was way too tart for my taste and really had no other flavor. I won't serve it again.

Grilled Venison Backstrap

Reviewed: Jul. 30, 2008
I didn't change a thing, and I won't in the future either. I did a couple pieces of beef tenderloin alongside just for comparison. They do taste different, but everyone agreed that one was just as good as the other.

Apple Chicken Stew

Reviewed: Sep. 25, 2008
I decided to use this recipe since I had some grouse to use up. This does end up being sweet tasting, but pleasantly so. I omitted the caraway and substituted onion powder for fresh onion. I used flour to thicken the gravy and ended up adding some salt to suit our tastes. It was a good dish and I may make it again.1

Pan Roasted Beef Tenderloin with Ginger-Shiitake Brown Butter

Reviewed: Dec. 7, 2008
Excellent flavor! I had to modify the cooking times because the meat/temp I had did not need 3 minutes per side to sear and took longer in the oven. Everything else worked very well.

Bandito Chicken Wings

Reviewed: Dec. 30, 2008
I really loved these. I don't think I've enjoyed wings this much in a long, long time. They went over very well with the rest of the family too.

Bacon Water Chestnut Rolls

Reviewed: Jan. 2, 2009
These were an absolute hit. Although I really think it's hard to go wrong with bacon. I did only use 1/3 a strip of bacon per water chestnut.

Easter Meat Pie

Reviewed: Mar. 12, 2009
I followed the recipe exactly. Both my husband and I found it to be salty but not bad tasting. We also didn't find the mix of meats to be anything special. If I do anything like this again, I might use just ham. Or find a good egg bake recipe.

Fresh Strawberry Upside Down Cake

Reviewed: May 1, 2009
I followed the recipe exactly. It looked and smelled excellent, the cake part baked very nicely. The whole thing came out of the pan perfectly. Too bad the stawberry part came out as a layer of rubber. People ate their pieces, but no one wanted seconds.
