Butternut Squash Bisque

Reviewed: Oct. 4, 2012
Thank you for the comments - they were very usefull. I followed many of the suggestions as well as added my own small changes to make the soup more flavorful and full bodied: I roasted all the vegetables including carrots, a red pepper, of course the butternut, as well as a whole head of garlic in olive oil. Added a few chillies to the onion when sautéing and added the roasted garlic purée (which was squeezed out from the whole head of the roasted garlic). Once all was combined I added 1/2 cinnamon stick to the soup with the flavorings after the broth was added (I used homemade beef and chicken broths). At the end I adjusted for taste by adding some honey, since I found the final product not quite sweet enough. It came out a very flavorful bisque and definitely not flat or tasteless as some commenters may have found. This recipe is an excellent starting point and definitely holds its own. Enjoy.

Maple Salmon

Reviewed: Feb. 3, 2009
Best cooked salmon I ever tasted. I always liked salmon just as sashimi or in sushi - never cooked. This recipe changed my mind. I'll make it again and again.

Baked Whole Cauliflower

Reviewed: Dec. 17, 2008
I just made this recipe and immediately, upon trying it, ate half of the cauliflower. To put it simply, this is very good. I intend to make it again and again. Thanks for sharing.

Brown Sugar Banana Nut Bread I

Reviewed: Dec. 7, 2008
I've been making this recipe for years and am only getting around to rating it now. Just the number of times I have made it speaks to how much I and everyone who's ever tried it loves this recipe. Easy, fast and saved an unspeakable number of overly ripe bananas from a fate in the dumpster. So from everyone, thank you for putting up this recipe. I'd recommend it to anyone - it's great.

Creamy Split Pea Soup

Reviewed: Dec. 7, 2008
I haven't written too many reviews for recipes before, but this one really deserves it. This is an excellent and easy to make split pea soup; it's a recipe I intend to make again and again. I did change just a few things. My husband doesn't eat pork so I cut out the ham and substituted a beef salami for the bacon. Also I halved the cream and added low fat milk for the other half. Otherwise no changes - came out great. Thanks a lot for the recipe.

Stuffed Cabbage

Reviewed: Jul. 1, 2005
stuffed cabbage is a great idea, but after freezing the head of letuce, i found that it was not nearly soft enough to wrap the meat/rice mixture around. it works much better if you boil the cabbage leaves, fill them and then stew the stuffed cabbage on the stove top. also it helps to mix up the meat using box beef and pork and add fried onion to the mixture. this recipe can definately be tweeked.
