Ali's Amazing Bruschetta

Reviewed: Feb. 2, 2011
I'm giving this 5 stars because it is a great "base" recipe. I made a couple changes. One thing for sure is you NEED to have balsamic vinegar. As far as amount, it really depends on what you like. Start with a drizzle, stir, taste, and add more if needed. Also, toast the baguettes. I find that by using either olive oil or a little melted butter works great under the broiler. I also used red onion instead of a sweet onion. I prefer the color of a red onion for presentation. If you need it sweetened, just add a touch of sugar.

Grilled Wild Duck Breast

Reviewed: Oct. 4, 2010
Absolutely fantastic! We only had time to marinade for about 25 minutes. I cut our bacon slices in half, wrapped each half breast with the bacon. We shot one Goldeneye (crappy bird) and one hen wood duck (very tasty bird). I wrapped the Goldeneye with jalepeno slices along with bacon. I wrapped the Wood Duck with bacon only. Fried both bird breats. My father who has been hunting for 45 plus years thought the jalepeno was the Wood Duck. I can't imagine how good it would have been if I would have marinated it for 24 hours. Will do this over and over again. Great appetizer!!!

Chocolate Pudding Fudge Cake

Reviewed: Jan. 31, 2011
Breathtaking! I made extra glaze so I cut back in the amount of chocolate chips that went into the cake batter. I also didn't have chocolate pudding but I had vanilla. I can't imagine it with chocolate. I think it would be too much chocolate. This was ABSOLUTELY fantastic!

Pudding-Topped Fruit Salad

Reviewed: Feb. 2, 2011
Fantastic! Although I highly recommend draining as much of the fruit as you can. After sitting for a short period of time it gets very watery.

Yogurt Parfait

Reviewed: Feb. 2, 2011
Great, I used many different berries (strawberries, blackberries, raspberries, blueberries). I also used Kashi granola. I served in a margarita glass and garnished with a sprig of mint. The ladies at the brunch thought they were in a top notch restaurant.

French Onion Soup Gratinee

Reviewed: Feb. 5, 2010
Great recipe to base your soup on. A couple tips. I used provolone cheese. Which is the cheese used in most restaurants. I ended up using 1/2 the chicken stock because I prefer a beef base broth. The chicken stock is a must, but just not that much. I used Merlot and it did have a sweeter taste to it. Next time, I'll probably use a red wine that is more dry. All in all it is a great recipe once you put your own twists on it.

Turkey Avocado Panini

Reviewed: Jan. 31, 2011
I only gave this 3 out of 5 because the spinach wasn't good when cooked. The avocado mayo was great. The red peppers were great, we just didn't like the way the spinach tasted limp and warm. Next time we will put some red onion on instead and those wanting greens we'll put on afterward.
