Scalloped Potatoes II

Reviewed: Apr. 16, 2006
Wonderful potato dish...I used light cream and infused it with garlic before pouring it over the potatoes. I'm hoping there will be leftovers!

Lamb Chops with Balsamic Reduction

Reviewed: Jun. 2, 2006
This is a hit! My daughter and husband love lamb chops and this was a special dinner last night. The sauce had just enough sweet/tartness to bring out the lamb flavor beautifully. I would like to try it on both chicken and pork as others have recommended. Thanks for a teriffic recipe!

Steak Tip Marinade

Reviewed: Jun. 3, 2006
I made this a couple of nights ago for my husband...he loved it, as did I. I'm planning to use it for a "Welcome Home" BBQ for my brother-in-law who is returning home from Iraq in July! I used chuck strips...they seem to have more flavor. I also feel that the BBQ sauce you use is very important to the outcome of this recipe. Thanks for a keeper!

Fried Soft-Shell Crab

Reviewed: Jun. 10, 2006
I made these last night as it was the first time I was able to get soft-shells at my fish monger's. Just great served on toasted rolls with lettuce and tomato with just a touch of mayo! I seasoned the flour with salt and pepper and a bit of Old Bay seasoning. Yum...

Herbed Pecan Crusted Scallops

Reviewed: Jun. 18, 2006
Not my favorite...I was inspired to use my herb garden but the herbs overpowered to delicate scallops. I'm a New Englander, so perhaps I'm just used to a simple broiled or grilled scallop.

This was a wonderful dinner! To those who say there was too much liquid...be patient and REDUCE the sauce. Thanks for a great recipe.

New England Clam Chowder I

Reviewed: Jul. 10, 2006
A good start for chowder base. I use salt pork rather than bacon. I only use clam broth and begin by cooking a couple of potatoes till mushy to give the broth some thickness. A real New England Clam Chowder NEVER thickens with flour or cornstarch. That will change the flavor and texture completely. Light cream and freshly ground pepper are added to the hot chowder just before adding the clams. I have never used canned clams, but I'm sure they are similar to fresh. I don't trust a chowder that "you can stand a spoon in". I make a simiar corn chowder with chicken broth and celery when the corn is fresh and plentiful.

Stuffed Pork Chops with Gorgonzola and Apple

Reviewed: Jul. 14, 2006
These were easy to prepare and tasted good, but baking for an hour was far too long. I had 1 1/2" chops and they were dry. Next time I may try flouring and egg washing the chops and pan frying first then finish them in the oven.

Creamy Blueberry Pie

Reviewed: Aug. 20, 2006
I made this to bring to dinner at a friends house. It was wonderful! I cut back a bit on the sugar and added cinnamon and nutmeg to the sour cream mixture. I also added fresh lemon zest and lemon juice to the berries. I thought people were going to lick their plates!

Beef Stroganoff III

Reviewed: Sep. 18, 2006
WOnderful recipe! The only changes I made were to use fresh mushrooms and served it over mashed cauliflower...true low carb. I found it easier to transfer the sauted beef (my local grocery store now carries chuck strips as well as sirloin) to a bowl while I cooked the onions and mushrooms. The result was a tender and flavorful delight. Patience is the key in getting the sauce to thicken. My husband loved it.

Salmon Fillets with Creamy Dill

Reviewed: Oct. 15, 2006
I served this for dinner last week. I'm not always a big salmon fan, but I am now! I have to take exception to some of the reviews that said the sauce was oily or greasy. You must not substitute low or nonfat mayonaise, as they are made with chemical ingredients that were not made to be heated. Julia Child (Bless her) had it right when she said that there was no substitute for butter. This will be a regular in my house. The extra sauce was great with roasted asparagus. I did add a bit of lemon zest to the sauce and was heavy with fresh ground pepper, but a super way to enjoy salmon which is a moderately priced fish.

Cranberry Walnut Relish II

Reviewed: Nov. 23, 2006
Yummy, yummy, yummy! I thank you as well as your Mom for such a wonderful addition to our Thanksgiving dinner. I used pecans rather than walnuts but the result was great. It is very pretty as well!

Rosemary-Scented Pork Loin Stuffed With Roasted Garlic, Dried Apricots and Cranberries and Port Wine Pan Sauce

Reviewed: Dec. 4, 2006
Wonderful way to use a pork loin. It was on sale this week at my local market and I prepared it for Sunday dinner. Excellent flavor! I added dried cherries to the fruit mix only because I had them. The sauce was superb! This is a real keeper. Many thanks!

Roasted Brussels Sprouts

Reviewed: Dec. 25, 2006
I have made these several times since I found this recipe here. My 24 yr old daughter (who would never try brussels sprouts) asked me to make them for Christmas dinner. Very easy and quite yummy! A real keeper. Thank you so much.

Italian Breaded Pork Chops

Reviewed: Mar. 12, 2007
Fantastic recipe. Just the same a my late(wonderful) Mother-in Law made them. She, too was Sicilian. These are wonderful when served with home-made (a New England thing) applesauce.

Veal Oscar

Reviewed: Jul. 14, 2007
Very good special dinner for my husband and myself. I did substitute hollandaise and also used fresh lobster rather than crab. I live in New England, so lobster is affordable in the summertime.

Ray's Chicken

Reviewed: Jul. 23, 2007
Fantastic marinade for boneless chicken! I marinaded several extra breasts and will use them for lunch in salads. I added both lemon and lime zest and fresh ground pepper instead of lemon pepper but followed the rest of the recipie as written. Loved it!!!
