Thai Steamed Mussels

Reviewed: Dec. 31, 2011
My family's newest favorite! They at first balked at me steering away from our usual tomato based mussels....but now....Thai Mussels are all they want. If it's not spicy enough add more red curry paste. Cooking is a science...experiment...I don't know how people cannot like these!

Sopapilla Cheesecake Dessert

Reviewed: Jun. 27, 2011
This is an amazing, SIMPLE, delicious dessert. I used 2 (8 oz) cream cheese and cut the sugar to 3/4 cup, added an egg as other reviewers suggested. The first time I baked this I baked it for 45 minutes...it was too long a time...bake it for 35 minutes for perfect sopapilla.

Nutty Apple Salad

Reviewed: Sep. 2, 2008
I liked the combination of ingredients, I didn't like the juicy dressing it had over it (that was the only complaint I had from my kids). I would leave out the milk next time and add more mayo.

Crepes with Spinach, Bacon and Mushroom Filling

Reviewed: Sep. 2, 2008
The only reason I'm giving this a four star is because I made several changes to this recipe. First of all I doubled the recipe (except for the spinach)and used a pound of bacon and a pound of breakfast sausage (use a little more or less to your taste). I added shredded colby jack cheese (about 1/2 cup) I didn't use any of the sauces called for in the recipe...I used 2 McCormic Original Country Gravy mixes made to package directions. Use enough to bind the ingredients together. Taste the ingredients, if it's not flavorful enough for you, by all means add a spice you like to it...that's what cooking is all about! I filled the crepes and put them in a baking dish. I poured the remainder of the sauce on the crepes and put them in the oven for about 20-30 minutes. My guests thought it was the best breakfast they ever had.

Sausage Spinach Bake

Reviewed: Sep. 2, 2008
Made this for labor day brunch. Everyone loved it. I'm giving it 5 stars with the adjustments I made to the recipe. I used more sausage and less spinach (half of a 16 oz bag of frozen spinach = 8 oz). I used 5 eggs instead of 3.

Bacon and Tomato Cups

Reviewed: Sep. 2, 2008
I've made this recipe twice. I've used the cresent rolls and the biscuits...most people liked the taste of the cresent rolls...less sweet. I used a pound of bacon and only enough mayo to moisten the mixture...oh, and I removed the seeds from the tomato. My guests are still raving about it.

Dorsey's Fish & Oyster House Crab Cakes

Reviewed: Jan. 8, 2007
I used king crab legs for this recipe. The type mustard you use will affect the taste. I used stoned ground mustard. I also added some red onion. I would let this set for awhile before forming into patties.

Sweet Banana Bread

Reviewed: Jan. 7, 2007
Oh my gosh is this bread good! I used instant banana pudding mix and I replaced the milk with rum and Kahlua.

Hot Fruit Salad

Reviewed: Jan. 1, 2007
Just make sure you drain all the fruit before mixing together. I also added some nutmeg to this recipe.

Brunch Enchiladas

Reviewed: Jan. 1, 2007
Made both the ham and the sausage enchiladas for New Years brunch. I baked without covering and the tops got hard. The filling was good, I added some cumen, cilantro and chili powder The egg mixture cooked around the enchiladas and the texture of the egg mixture was pretty nauseating. I served it with sour cream, salsa and guacamole. The sausage ones were better. I put in some refried beans, the sausage mixture and then the cheese. Next time I make something like this I will scramble the eggs and put them into the tortila and cover with a cheese sauce. I will not make this recipe again.

Broccoli Casserole III

Reviewed: Dec. 9, 2006
The next time I make this recipe, I will thaw out the frozen broccoli first. Other than that I followed the recipe and it was fantastic!

Salmon with Brown Sugar and Bourbon Glaze

Reviewed: Oct. 30, 2006
My husband loved this recipe. He said it looked pretty enough to be in a magazine. You have to serve it with rice. Remember with this recipe...low and slow. Soak your pan in hot water and you'll have no problem getting the glaze out of your pan.

Asparagus with Brie

Reviewed: Mar. 5, 2006
The crumb topping was excellent with the sesame seeds. The cheese did not melt like I expected as the white rind of the cheese sat on top of the asparagus and the cheese melted to the bottom. My company loved it though.

Crab-Stuffed Filet Mignon with Whiskey Peppercorn Sauce

Reviewed: Mar. 5, 2006
If you want to impress someone make this recipe. I used pork tenderloin and used bay spice in the stuffing that someone had mentioned. I broiled the stuffed filets to brown them and then finished baking them.....it probably was the best dinner I ever made. My guests raved about it all night.

Better Slow Cooker Robust Chicken

Reviewed: Jul. 21, 2005
Very good chicken recipe. My husband was very happy to eat the leftovers for lunch. Recipes that incorporate wine in them call for a sophisticated palette, so if you don't like wine, you won't like this recipe.

Slow Cooker Lasagna

Reviewed: Jul. 4, 2005
I did a lot of substituting on this recipe. I added italian sausage along with the ground beef. I omitted the onion, garlic, sauce, paste, salt and oregano and used bottled sauce (would have made my own sauce, but ran out of time). I also used ricotta cheese instead of the cottage cheese. In the ricotta cheese I added two eggs, salt, pepper and parsley and mixed it well. I also used penne pasta instead of the lasagna noodles. I cooked it on high for one hour and low for 2 hours. It turned out fabulously! I would rather make this lasanga than the traditional oven method!

Cranberry Pork Roast

Reviewed: Jun. 19, 2005
Before making this for father's day dinner I read a good number of reviews. In place of the cranberry juice I substituted chicken broth and did not add the sugar as it was in my opinion sweet enough. I also added some dry onion soup mix and pepper. I also added to taste some Emril's Essence. My husband felt that the gravey needed something. I cut up the pork and simmered it in the gravey for about 1/2 hr. My family gave it four stars. I would make it again.
