Champagne Shrimp and Pasta

Reviewed: Jul. 27, 2011
Well, this is ust ridiculous. Aside from leaving out mushrooms and using pappardelle pasta, I made as is. There is no need to modify this recipe because it is *perfect*, and surprisingly simple to make.

Best Butternut Squash Soup Ever

Reviewed: Nov. 2, 2010
Even without using all of the broth, there was too much liquid. The flavor wasn't bad, and the low calories are nice, but I wouldn't bother making it again.

Maple Butter

Reviewed: Feb. 11, 2010
Left out the pumpkin spice and used Eggo Buttery syrup. Turned out amazing, but unless it's spread on hot items, the texture is gritty due to the brown sugar. Anyway, the taste makes up for the grit. Used on cornbread, and will definately make again.

Red Velvet Cupcakes

Reviewed: Feb. 8, 2010
I'm not a fan of baking (because it never turns out right!), but even I managed not to ruin them. They are great, and the sour cream added to the icing really freshens them. They are perfect for Valentine's Day.

Spicy Maryland Crab Dip

Reviewed: Dec. 28, 2009
Awesome. Made as is, but with a full pound of canned lump crabmeat. Used my hot dip crock pot to cook it. Can't wait to make again

Taco Dip I

Reviewed: Nov. 16, 2009
As per other reviews, I used only 8oz of sour cream but kept everything else more or less the same. This turned out great - everyone loved it & wanted the recipe. Added bonus - it's quick to make and pretty cheap too.

Frank's® Red Hot® Buffalo Chicken Dip

Reviewed: Nov. 1, 2009
Great dip, easy to make. I was hesitant about using canned chicken but it turned out fine. Bleu cheese crumbles were great but may be too pungent for others. Depending on who I'm making the dip for, I may use the mozzarella cheese.

Sea Bass Cuban Style

Reviewed: Jul. 15, 2009
The sauce was excellant but I was not a fan of the fish's texture - I suppose I prefer something firmer. Will definately make again but will try with chicken breasts next time.

Panzanella Panini

Reviewed: Jun. 3, 2009
Made this on my George Foreman grill in under 10 minutes. I was worried that the sandwich was going to be too tall to fit, but it was a-ok. I held the grill down for a minute, and after that just let it be. The bread toasted better than I expected, and had better color/texture where ever I had put the olive oil. Added the balsamic to the tomatoes instead of the bread (was afraid the bread would get soggy), and added S&P to the fresh mozzarella. Super fast & easy & tasty = 5 stars.

Penne and Vodka Sauce

Reviewed: May 18, 2009
Very easy and quick to make, plus it was really tasty. I doubled the pancetta - not because it needed it, but because of preferance. I used Dececco's jarred sauce. Reheated well in the microwave the next day. UPDATE: Tried again w/half & half per other reviews with dismal results. Will not make that mistake again.

Spinach and Orzo Salad

Reviewed: Apr. 29, 2009
This really makes ALOT of pasta salad. Unless cooking for a party, I plan on only making 1/2 the recipe from now on. I added the spinach while the pasta was still warm to wilt it, then added everything but the cheese. I didn't want that to melt so I only added that once the salad was chilled. Really wish I listened to other reviewers and added kalamata olives - they would have been a great addition.

Barbie's Tuna Salad

Reviewed: Apr. 29, 2009
This was a great recipe, but perhaps a little too pungent. The next time I make this (and there will be a next time), I'll either decrease some of the seasoning or increase the tuna. The relish really added a good flavour. I served this in scooped out tomatoes.

Basil Tomato Soup

Reviewed: Jan. 26, 2009
Very good but also very intense. Sauteed a small onion and 3 cloves of garlic and then added to the soup pre-cream & butter. Also added 1/3 box of cooked ditalani pasta. Very quick & easy to make and will make again soon. Used light butter this time and heavy cream - will try light cream next time.

Mom's Chili

Reviewed: Jan. 15, 2009
Super easy & super fast. Grabbed some ideas from similar recipes and used pinto beans instead, added a green bell pepper, an onion, and 2 cloves of garlic, 1-tbsp of cocoa powder and 1-tsp of cumin. This is great chili, and goes ver well with the Spanish Rice II recipe also found on this sight. Thanks for a great recipe!

Awesome! Added 2 cloves of garlic and a little cumin. I did have to use additional liquid, but other than that, I followed the recipe.

Capers and Halibut

Reviewed: Jan. 8, 2009
This recipe was quick, easy and rather tasty. I merged a few similar recipes -I lightly dredged the filets in egg wash & flour, and also added 2 tbsp fresh parsley to the sauce at the end. I kept them warm in the oven while I prepared the sauce. I don't think we had the oil hot enough though because the fish seemed to absorb some of.

Balsamic Roasted Red Potatoes

Reviewed: Nov. 21, 2008
Quick & easy. Used white balsamic vinegar so the red potatoes weren't discolored, and based on other reviews, I tossed them in the vinegar prior to baking. Used the non-stick tin foil and had no problems with them sticking to the pan. Left out the nut meg and used butter for half of the oil. Everyone liked them.

Sage Pork Chops

Reviewed: Nov. 21, 2008
LOVE THESE! I made this for my boyfriend and I, using two thicker chops but kept all of the seasoning measurements the same. Used about 1c. reduced sodium beef broth in place of water & bullion cube. I was wary cooking for the full time and found 35 minutes to be perfect. Added a little corn starch after I removed the meat and this made a great gravy. But FYI - I thought the salt was fine but you may want to half it if your not a fan of super salty.
