Grilled Salmon Skewers

Reviewed: Sep. 1, 2006
This is fantastic! Simple to make and wonderfully tasty. I found the recipe a few months ago and have already made it 5-6 times! It's almost like candied salmon - but not that sweet. I did have difficulty getting 12 skewers out of a pound of salmon but it really doesn't matter how many you have as long as they're all about the same size so they cook evenly. On the one occasion we had a few skewers left over, I stripped off the salmon, mixed it up with a little mayo and had a great salmon spread for crackers as well! Thank you, thank you, thank you!

Crab-Stuffed Filet Mignon with Whiskey Peppercorn Sauce

Reviewed: Feb. 22, 2006
Fantastic! Maybe I'm more comfortable in a kitchen than some but I couldn't figure out what all the whining was about regarding the prep for this dish. Sure you have to chop up a bunch of stuff but once that's done, everything goes together easily. I started the sauce while the stuffing was cooking and everything was set when the steaks were ready to be stuffed and sauted. We've even prepared this dish ahead of time (all except cooking the meat) and brought it over to a friend's house and completed it there. The stuffing was great and the whikey peppercorn sauce was incredible. My husband lurked around the kitchen and could not believe there were no mushrooms in the sauce as it was reducing. It smelled great and tasted even better. My only advice is to precook the bacon for a few minutes (4-5)in the microwave to prevent it from being soggy if you're cooking the filets to medium rare.

Spinach Stuffed Chicken Breast

Reviewed: Dec. 16, 2005
After reading all the reviews I simplified the recipe slightly by using about half of a 10 oz. frozen package of spinach (well drained), cut the garlic down by half and added a bit more cheese. I precooked the bacon for about 4-5 minutes in the microwave and then placed two strips in an "X" over the top of the stuffed breast and tucked the ends underneath - no need for toothpicks. With 3-4 minutes under a broiler to finish off the bacon and a light sprinkling of more shredded cheese over the top, these were fantastic! Simple enough to make for the family, elegant enough to serve to company. Wow!

Pork Chop and Cabbage Casserole

Reviewed: Oct. 11, 2005
After reading all the reviews of this recipe and making a few adjustments (adding seasonings to the vegetables, adding some mushrooms and orange bell peppers and covering the dish with foil for most of the baking), it never got past the so-so mark with me and my husband. It was okay but pretty nondescript. Not worth making again.

Mandarin Shrimp and Vegetable Stir Fry

Reviewed: Mar. 23, 2005
This was great! Although I agree with others that the broccoli gets overcooked - even though I only cooked the veggies for a couple of minutes. Next time I'll just toss the broccoli in when I add the shrimp and sauce to the pan. And while my husband and I like flavorful food, I only used 1 Tbl. of the hot sauce and we couldn't imagine the heat if I had used the full 2 Tbl. This one's a keeper!

Fra Diavolo Sauce With Pasta

Reviewed: Jan. 28, 2005
Incredible! And easy! I used 2 cans of diced tomatoes and all the red pepper and it turned out great. My husband and I decided that the sauce was a tad too zippy for the scallops and will use all shrimp next time. This will become a staple in our house.

Apricot Chops

Reviewed: Jan. 28, 2005
Wow. Fast and easy. I used 4 boneless chops and made 3/4 of the sauce recipe. Baked in a 9x9 pan for about 25 minutes. This will become a staple in our house.
