Beef Wellington

Reviewed: Feb. 19, 2011
Very impressive dish. I, like other reviewers, made two individual portions using filet mignons. I also seared my filets in the pan before wrapping and baking, rather than pre-baking. My only issue is that I believe I seared mine for too long, because my beef came out more like a medium instead of a medium rare. I did put the wrapped filets on a rack, but the bottom of the pastry was still a bit soggy. This was just fine, however. This would be very impressive at a dinner party and I will definately be making this again.

Tiramisu Layer Cake

Reviewed: Feb. 19, 2011
This cake received rave reviews. I made it for Valentine's Day but then took the leftovers to a dinner party and it was just as well received the second time around. My only real complain is the amount of incredients I had to buy the lengthy process needed to make the cake. If you're a regular baker, this cake is probably no big deal, but it was my first cake, so it was a bit of a project. As other reviewers mentioned, I also doubled up on the coffee cake layers and the coffee liquour mixture where called for.

Cucumber Sandwich

Reviewed: Feb. 19, 2011
Who knew a sandwhich could be so fabulous. I changed the recipe up a little, so that I could cut back on the WW points. I used a lower fat onion chive cream cheese. I left of the avocado and left off the oil. As another reviewer mentioned, I also used balsamic vinagrette. It was just wonderful. I've had one every day for lunch this week.

Bacon Wrapped Water Chestnuts II

Reviewed: Nov. 6, 2010
I've made this a good dozen times and it never fails to please a crowd...which means I'm never carrying home leftovers after a potluck. As another reviewer mentioned, it's best to wrap the chestnust first and then pour sauce over top. I've also wrapped the chestnuts, left the sauce off, baked, and then added the sauce toward the end, thinking this would cause less burnt sauce to be stuck to my pan in the end, and it did help, but you could just line your pan with tin foil probably.

Sweet and Sour Meatballs III

Reviewed: Aug. 30, 2009
This sounds like a pretty strange mix of ingredients, but everything ends up mixing together perfectly. I've made this recipe for several potlucks and I always get rave reviews...and come home with an empty crock pot. I made it once for a family get together and my sister now insists that I make them whever she is up to visit. I've even had people who swear that they don't like saurkraut try this recipe and end up loving it. It is definatley one of my go to recipes now.

Chicken Breasts with Lime Sauce

Reviewed: Jan. 30, 2009
I made this recipe exactly, except I only had three chicken breasts and I also salt and peppered the chicken before breading it. I though it was great. My boyfriend raved about how tender it was and also really liked the lime butter. It took me a bit longer to perpare because of having to pound out chicken, but the cook time is quick because of pounding it.

Maple Salmon

Reviewed: Aug. 30, 2007
This was definately good. Unfortunately, I did not realize I was out of tinfoil before I started this, so I was not able to follow suggestions of other cooks. I also did not marinate this, as I was planning on just putting it all in a tinfoil pack. It still turned out really good.

Thai Red Chicken Curry

Reviewed: Oct. 21, 2006
First, I don't think it's necessary to double the curry in this recipe. It is very spicy. Also, it is really bland. I didn't know a dish could be both very spicy and very bland, but this one did it. I even added garlic, coriander, and cumin. I did not have a lime so I could not try lime juice as others had recommended. I will not make this again.

Amazing Pork Tenderloin in the Slow Cooker

Reviewed: Sep. 16, 2006
This was excellent. I made it as written except I added some chopped leeks since I had some and it sounded good. You can really taste the wine in this, so make sure you buy a wine you really like. I used a merlot.

Roasted Beets and Sauteed Beet Greens

Reviewed: Sep. 16, 2006
This recipe gets an excellent review from me for several reasons. It has relitively few ingredients, which I love. It is simple, which I love. And, I got to eat beets, which I have never had fresh. I have only had pickled before and hated them. I topped my beets with butter salt and pepper.

Easy Lentil Feta Wraps

Reviewed: Aug. 14, 2006
Excellent! I followed the recipe exactly and loved it. The only thing I wasn't fond of was the feta (although I think it was just the type of feta I bought) so the second wrap I made I used real parmesan cheese and this was really great. Even my meat-lovin boyfriend loved them.

Sauteed Corn on the Cob With Chili-Lime-Cilantro Spread

Reviewed: Jun. 19, 2006
This was pretty good. I liked the tangy flavor of the sourcream, but I'm not real sure about the cilantro.

Pork Loin and Cabbage

Reviewed: Jun. 18, 2006
Both the cabbage and the chops had good flavor, but my pork chops turned out dry. Also, some of the cabbage burned to the bottom of the pan even though I used oil.
