Crepes with Spinach, Bacon and Mushroom Filling

Reviewed: Jul. 19, 2008
I didn't think this was amazing enough for the amount of dishes I had to dirty up in order to make it! It certainly looks pretty but the flavor isn't there for me. Thanks anyway:o)

Orange and Rosemary Baked Olives

Reviewed: Jun. 26, 2008
These are delicious! I used kalamata olives, which aren't called for here but that's what I had. Surprisingly, the olives didn't overpower the seasonings & after sitting at room temp for about an hour, the flavors just melded together. Wonderful recipe & next time I'll use the olives that are specified. Nice job:o)

Indian Relish

Reviewed: Jun. 12, 2008
Sweet, spicy, fast, cheap, & easy. Sort of like me:o):o):o) I cut the pepper flakes back to around 1 tsp. & added cornstarch as others did. It isn't even cool yet & half of it's gone. Awesome with cheese or just plain crackers. I will always have this in the fridge. Thank you so much for sharing! Love it!:o)

Grilled Rosemary Beef Tenderloin

Reviewed: Jun. 10, 2008
I think the name of the recipe is a little misleading. All of the flavor comes from the steak seasoning, which I love & use often. Dried rosemary & parsley?!?!? Not in this house. That's like an insult to tenderloin! I did however make a compound butter to melt over the top & no, it didn't need it but man, that took it over the top. I was a very bad girl tonight. Don't judge me:o):o):o)

Corn Salad II

Reviewed: Jun. 5, 2008
I wasn't expecting anything particularly special with this recipe, I just needed to use up some leftover corn but I really liked this. It's a nice twist on the 'ol cuke/sour cream dish we all know how to make. Very refreshing salad:o)

Zucchini Cakes

Reviewed: May 20, 2008
Thanks to all of the previous reviewers that noted the amount of Old Bay was too much. Because of the advice, I reduced it to suit the quantity of cakes I made. I used unseasoned Panko bread crumbs also. I most certainly didn't bake these, it's enough that I'm eating zucchini in the first place! I pan fried 'em in olive oil & served with a homemade remoulade. Smaller, these would be terrific appetizers so that's what I'll do when I make them again. Keeper:o)

Broiled Zucchini with Rosemary Butter

Reviewed: May 20, 2008
This turned out really well for me. I used my grill pan rather than the broiler & used orange rind/juice instead of lemon because that's what I had. I'll use lemon next time because the orange was a little too subtle. Great dish!:o)

Dilly Potato Salad

Reviewed: May 5, 2008
This was a nice change from the usual potato salad. I left out the olives but kept everything else the same. I thought it tasted best the day it was made. The leftovers were a little too dilly for me:o)

Pepperoni Stuffed Mushrooms

Reviewed: Apr. 30, 2008
These turned out well. I had to substitute white wine for the chicken stock but otherwise followed the recipe as written. I'm not sure if I liked the crackers in this but I loved the pepperoni! Thanks, K-Girl:o)

Grilled Halibut Steaks

Reviewed: Apr. 29, 2008
This was wonderful! Rather than wasting the butter by using it to baste the fish while grilling, I made a simple butter sauce with the herbs & some reduced white wine & poured it over the halibut after it was plated. This is my first time cooking halibut & I'm thrilled this is the recipe I chose. Thanks so much:o)

Super Easy Dip for Artichokes or Asparagus

Reviewed: Apr. 27, 2008
This was actually better than I expected. I used it with asparagus. The combo of tastes worked but it needed something sharp to balance the richness of the sesame oil/mayo. Not extra lemon, though. Maybe a tiny splash of rice wine vinegar? I sprinkled some Hawaiian black sea salt on top of the dip & that helped add crunch & an interesting flavor. Pretty cool recipe with few ingredients, proving that something doesn't need to be complicated to taste good. Thanks:o)

Homemade Vanilla Pudding

Reviewed: Apr. 11, 2008
I loved this! I put all of the ingredients except the butter in a lidded jar, shook to blend & then proceeded with the recipe as written. I had a vanilla bean which added tons of flavor. I had no problem with it setting up too thick, it turned out perfectly. I even used 1% milk! I can't wait to try it using other flavors & I might see how it freezes. Thanks so much for such a quick, easy, & delish recipe!:o)

Hoagie Dip

Reviewed: Mar. 29, 2008
This did taste hoagie-esque. I think it needed more "bite", perhaps using capicola would liven it up a bit & the idea to use a little red wine vinegar is a good one. I added pickled banana peppers but they weren't acidic enough to cut the heaviness of the mayo. Very creative idea but it's doubtful that I'll make this again. Thanks for letting me try it, though:o)

Beef Stew VI

Reviewed: Mar. 9, 2008
This was a good basic stew. I used beef stock rather than bouillon cubes & fresh rosemary instead of dried. I didn't realize I was out of carrots until I was done browning all of the beef & not wanting to go to the store, I just left them out. I'll buy some to add to the leftovers because beef stew really should have carrots, according to my Gramma. Thanks for the recipe:o)

Bacon for the Family or a Crowd

Reviewed: Feb. 8, 2008
Thank you, Joyce! I used to cook bacon this way years ago but kinda forgot about it until now. Came out great & kudos to Allrecipes for publishing a cooking technique that everyone can use to make life a little easier without sacrificing flavor. Keep 'em coming!

Lamb Chops with Balsamic Reduction

Reviewed: Jan. 24, 2008
Absolutely perfect! Even with my slap-happy way of following a recipe it was still perfect. For the butter, I used homemade. I got that recipe here, you guys should try it:o) I also added the balsamic to the pan before the stock & due to the heat of the pan, it caramelized very quickly & nearly burned. Definitely add the stock first & let everything reduce as the recipe states. The lamb was cooked, (I hate to keep saying this), to perfection. Not only will I make this again, I'm passing out the recipe to everyone I know:o)

Anne's Potato Pancakes

Reviewed: Jan. 23, 2008
My red potatoes gave off a lot of liquid after shredding & I can't imagine adding 3 eggs to this. I only used one egg & still had to add at least twice the amount of flour called for. I should've used my common sense & squeezed the moisture out of the potatoes instead of trying to compensate by adding extra flour to a terribly soupy mixture. They didn't turn out bad but I could've saved myself some time & energy if I would've just trusted my own cooking skills.

Roast Sticky Chicken-Rotisserie Style

Reviewed: Jan. 18, 2008
Not that this recipe needs any more accolades, but man, this stuff is good! It isn't "sticky" & who cares? My only complaint is that I couldn't walk through the house without my stomach screaming, Is it time to EAT?!?!?! This recipe made me look like a rock star & I didn't have to do anything except throw it in the oven & go read a book until it was done. Doesn't get better than that:o)

Amby Rae's Cucumber Salad

Reviewed: Jan. 18, 2008
I can't bring myself to rate a recipe badly. I think it takes a lot of guts to post one for thousands of strangers to judge. Having said that, as written, this didn't work for me. Obviously, one cup of sour cream per cuke is over the top & I added it a spoonful at a time until everything was just lightly coated. I liked the addition of mint, that was a nice touch but after tasting, I also added fresh dill & cracked black pepper. Not bad, just not something I'll make again. Thanks for letting me try it, though:o)

Pour-A-Pan Pizza

Reviewed: Jan. 6, 2008
While this will never replace pizza, I thought it worked pretty well & it was quick & fun to make. I partially cooked the crust before adding the toppings & I kept those to a minimum. Cut into bite sized pieces, this would make a nice appetizer. Thanks for the post:o)
