Brandied Shrimp with Pasta

Reviewed: Mar. 28, 2010
Really enjoyed this. Like other reviewers, I thought the cooking time on the shrimp was a bit long so next time I'll take it out after the brandy step and add it back in towards the end. I didn't do the whole stick of butter, just half.

Balsamic Roasted Pork Loin

Reviewed: Jan. 10, 2010
We didn't find this particularly flavorful but that might have changed if I'd had 24 hours to marinate it. That said, it still marinated for over 3 hours before cooking. I cooked it until 145 degrees, as the recipe indicated, but even with carry over cooking I still had to put it back in the oven- it was still too pink in the center and the juices weren't running clear. I had hoped to be able to make a sauce with the pan juices but the balsamic had mostly dried up and burned and all that was left in the pan was an oil bath. I might make this again but will use far less oil and I would marinate longer.

Chicken Stroganoff II

Reviewed: Jul. 27, 2008
Scaled the recipe back to serve two. My husband enjoyed this recipe very much. I liked it rather well, too, but thought the tang of the tomato soup was a bit much. I used fresh mushrooms instead of canned and tossed in a few grape tomatoes, simply because I had them on hand. I would make this again but will go lighter on the tomato soup.

Family's Creamed Spinach

Reviewed: Dec. 28, 2007
I made this the night before my family's Christmas party to give it a test run and it was quite good. My husband, a big fan of creamed spinach, thoroughly enjoyed it. I did add a couple of tablespoons of heavy cream at the end because it appeared rather dry. While I thought it lost something in quadrupling it for a big family dinner, however (even with the addition of heavy cream), my family gave it good reviews. Reheated beautifully.

Fra Diavolo Sauce With Pasta

Reviewed: Nov. 18, 2006
My husband and I enjoyed this recipe very much. We thought it was very heavy on the garlic so I will scale back next time I make it. I sauteed about 1/2 cup finely diced red onion with the garlic which added a nice sweetness to the finished sauce. A tablespoon of balsamic rounded the sauce off nicely. Will definitely make this again! Thanks!

Pasta with Scallops, Zucchini, and Tomatoes

Reviewed: Feb. 14, 2005
This was fantastic! I didn't use nearly as much oil called for and used a can of diced tomatoes with the juice. If things started to look a bit dry I'd give a splash of oil and, later, a few tablespoons of the pasta water. Thanks, this really was a terrific meal and so quick and easy to make. My husband couldn't stop raving about it and told me it MUST be put into the dinner "rotation"!

Creamy Braised Chicken

Reviewed: Jan. 4, 2004
While the outcome was delicious, like the others who rated before me, I thought the recipe was way too time consuming, hence only 3 stars. I'd make it again, but bump up the amount of sliced onion and go without the hassle of separately cooking the pearl onions. (Or just use frozen.)

Chicken Things

Reviewed: Apr. 23, 2003
Thought this recipe was fast, easy and good! Great served over rice. I'd reduce cooking time though- 20 minutes is a bit long. Perfect for those nights when I need to get something on the table fast.

Broiled Chicken with Roasted Garlic Sauce

Reviewed: Mar. 1, 2001
Very easy to make and very tasty! Instead of serving the sauce over rice or pasta, I poured it over the chicken for a nicer (less "boring" looking) presentation of the chicken. Served with oven-roasted potatoes.
