Roquefort Pear Salad

Reviewed: Sep. 18, 2008
A very sophisticated salad for a very sophisticated palate. The dressing was simple and a perfect complement for the complex flavors of the salad itself. Thanks for sharing.

Grilled Bacon Jalapeno Wraps

Reviewed: Sep. 11, 2008
I followed recipe almost exactly substituting turkey bacon for regular. It was very, very good. My husband ate them all up! Also, since it was raining I cooked them up in my toaster oven at 450 degrees. Yummy!

Broccoli with Lemon Butter Sauce

Reviewed: Sep. 10, 2008
At first, my broccoli looked fine but unfortunately, over the course of just a few minutes, the sauce turned my broccoli a nasty shade of brown. It tasted just okay to me. My kids tried it but didn't care for it at all. Appearance is a big part of a dish's overall appeal and success. I wish I knew what I could have done differently to prevent the "browning" of my veggies.

Herbed Salmon

Reviewed: Sep. 10, 2008
This was a tasty way to prepare salmon. The only change I made was to use my pampered chef baking sheet and seal it with aluminum foil. I had a large salmon and it took longer than the stated time to cook. When it was done it was very moist and flavorful. I used fresh herbs from my garden and am glad I did! Thank you for a simple and delicious recipe.

Bread Machine Focaccia

Reviewed: Sep. 3, 2008
I, and my family, really enjoyed this bread. It was very flavorful and a real success! I added a touch more herbs (sage and basil) to the rosemary and it took this modification well. I've posted a photo as it ended up being a very good looking bread. Thank you for sharing this very easy and tasty recipe.

Best Bread Machine Bread

Reviewed: Aug. 25, 2008
We tried this yesterday. It came out a bit funky looking (top was "swirly" and uneven) but it tasted ever so good! This is a very good basic recipe and I will add this to my bread rotation. Thank you!

We do a version of this often. I decided to follow your recipe the other day based on the wonderful reviews you've recieved. Wow! A perfect balance of ingredients. I have nothing to add as this recipe is perfect as written.

Tantalizing Turkey and Blue Cheese Meatballs

Reviewed: Aug. 20, 2008
I made this recipe almost exactly as written (I used half the black pepper called for). Unfortunately the meat mixture was too wet to form into meat balls. An additional 1/2 cup of bread crumbs did the trick. I really enjoyed this recipe. The ingredients were subtle and complemented each other well. I served the meatballs with a balsamic reduction along with sides of wilted spinach and pasta with homemade pesto sauce. YUM! On a sorry note, my husband and children are traditionalists and prefer the same old turkey meatballs I usually make (not your fault). They gave you between 1 and 3 stars. However, I gave you 5! Since my vote counts more (after all, I searched for recipe, made recipe, prepared appropriate accompaniments and took the time to review said recipe), I gave you an average 4 star rating. You did a great job and should be proud of this recipe. I am impressed that this was submitted by a 15 year old. I look forward to great things from you!

Ricardo's Pizza Crust

Reviewed: Aug. 10, 2008
I'm sorry Ricardo, but as written this is not what I was expecting. 1st of all TOO MUCH SUGAR! Way too sweet...does not go with the savory flavors of the added garlic and herbs. Secondly, NOT ENOUGH FLOUR! We spent a good 15 minutes trying to get the sticky dough out of the bread machine pan. It did puff up quite a bit during baking so my advice is to roll thinLy unless you like a lot of dough with your pizza. I wouldn't mind trying this again with a fraction of the sugar and another cup or 2 of flour. EDIT: I read over the other reviews and am now questioning that maybe I did something wrong in the crust making process. That and the kids enjoyed their pizza. Okay...one more star. I guess maybe it was a personal taste thing. Still think it was way too sweet though.

Cumin Lamb Steaks with Smashed Potatoes, Wilted Spinach and Red Wine Sauce

Reviewed: Aug. 7, 2008
Disclaimer: I made the lamb only, not the spinach or potatoes so my review is focused on only the lamb. Very interesting combination of flavors. I never would have thought of cumin and a red wine reduction going together but in this circumstance it really works. The lamb was quite flavorful and my daughter (the other lamb lover in the family) enjoyed this dish as much, if not more, than I. I did feel the need to add a little kosher salt to the wine sauce because I felt it was just a touch too sweet. Otherwise, no modifications. Thanks for submitting a unique and flavorful recipe.

Zesty Slow Cooker Chicken Barbecue

Reviewed: Aug. 6, 2008
Made this tonight using left over Roast Sticky Chicken Rotisserie Style on Buttery Rolls from this site. YUMMY! I added minced garlic and onion and it took these modifications beautifully! Thanks for an easy, tasty recipe! Will be using this for my leftovers more often!

Stuffed Zucchini I

Reviewed: Aug. 5, 2008
These were just okay for me but daughter and husband enjoyed them. They definitely need additional seasoning, though (I ended up adding some garlic and basil) They were quite filling, however, and made a pretty presentation. With some tweaking they would make a good holiday dish. On a side note, I don't know why but these had a "pumpkiny" undertone to it.

Jay's Signature Pizza Crust

Reviewed: Jul. 31, 2008
Your crust was wonderful for grilled pizza. It was very simple to make (using a bread machine) and I was able to to stretch the recipe into 7 individual pizza crusts, thin and crispy style. As I rolled out the individual crusts, instead of a floured surface I used cornmeal instead. Other than that recipe was followed exactly.

Honey Of An Oatmeal Bread

This recipe has the honor of being the inaugeral bread in my new bread machine. Simple and delicious! And guess what? I didn't make any modifications as I am prone to do. Thank you for a wonderful recipe.

Panzanella Salad

Reviewed: Jun. 23, 2008
I'm truly sorry but this salad was just okay. I really, really wanted to like it as it is currently the big hit on the "exchange" but I must be honest. I made exactly as written and ended up with mush. What did I do wrong? Maybe I'll try again and do it this way: Toss vinegrette with everything except the bread. Gently toss bread into salad JUST PRIOR to serving.

My children would like to review this recipe: "It was totally awesome!" -Bethany, age 13 "Two thumbs up"-Paul, age 9. Now my review: A very easy base recipe. We did not have strawberries so substituted frozen bananas and a Hershey bar. Wow, was it tasty. Can't wait to try it with other frozen fruit. Thanks for sharing.

Easy Pesto

Reviewed: May 2, 2008
You score "5 stars" for an excellent basic recipe with the added originality of using almonds instead of pine nuts. It was wonderful, as is. However, I do prefer my pesto with added parmesan cheese (the real stuff, not processed) and a touch of lemon juice. Your recipe accepted these modifications with delightful results.
