Snow on the Mountain Green Beans

Reviewed: Mar. 15, 2008
I bought some great feta to use in this recipe, I followed the recipe exactly, and it was a thumbs up from everyone who had them. I will make again with some very minor changes including steaming the beans, as that's how we prefer them. N*R

Gorgonzola-Garlic Dip

Reviewed: Mar. 16, 2008
Again, since this is a N*R review, I made as is(other than I doubled it), so my review will be for that. The flavor was very good but I felt the proportions were a bit off. Next time, I will make it with balsamic, a bit less oil and snip in some green onions. I served it with lightly toasted sourdough and rye and it was tasty like that, but, as others have said, I think it'd be a good topping for burgers. All in all, a solid starter recipe. N*R

Broiled Tilapia Parmesan

Reviewed: Mar. 20, 2008
Yum! Let me just say that they only real reason this is getting a 4 out of 5 is because I think it's a crime to not use dill for seafood, especially if you are using a citrus element. That said, though, this was a fantastic recipe and easily a 5 star with dill replacing the basil. It melts in your mouth, it's rich, delicious and easy.

Peanut Butter Nuggets

Reviewed: Mar. 22, 2008
I wish we could give half stars, because I'd give it a 3 1/2...this mixture was tasty as written, but the proportions were a bit off for me to form a "dough", and I didn't care for the corn flakes to roll them in. I did some just as written to be able to give an appropriate review, then I added a bit more cereal to the dough and a touch more honey to get it easier to form into balls. Then, I made them a bit smaller than called for and I rolled them in cocoa since they were so sweet. I like that it only uses honey and peanut butter for the sweetness, both of which I love and always have really good of both on hand, I will make these again.

New Potatoes with Caper Sauce

Reviewed: Apr. 2, 2008
These are fantastic. I could tell by reading the recipe I'd enjoy it, but I didn't know how much. The ONLY change I made was to use fingerling potatoes because I prefer them, but since the rest of the ingredients are what make this recipe, it still easily deserves the rating. I even borrowed white wine vinegar to make it the first time because I only had red and balsamic, but I think they'll be great with either of those next time I make them, and there will be a next time.

Spinach Cheddar Muffins

Reviewed: Apr. 4, 2008
I'm sorry, but as written, these are just not to our taste. I made it just as the recipe states in order to give it a fair review, but IF I were to make them, again, I'd add a lot more seasonings, and for sure I wouldn't use frozen spinach. I doubt I'll try them, again, though. N*R

Muenster-Bacon Stuffed Chicken Breast

Reviewed: Apr. 19, 2008
I made this as written with 2 breasts so I could rate it fairly, and that gets a 3 1/2, but easily altered to get a 4 with, as others said, a bit less of everything. There were just so many layers, they competed a bit, I think. With the rest, we used the same basic concept and ingredients minus the breadcrumbs and egg and less bacon and cheese, stuffed with a bit of both cheeses and bacon and grilled them. The taste was nearly the same, just a preferred way of cooking chicken this time of year. It's a good recipe either way, and adjustable. N*R

Garlic and Herb Cream Cheese

Reviewed: May 3, 2008
This was pretty good, and is a good base idea. Like others, I'd cut the butter by up to half. The oregano was just too much for me, too, so I'd leave that out next time, and increase the dill a bit. I didn't mind the dry herbs, just the strong oregano flavor. It would also be good with goat cheese rather than cream cheese. We ate it as a snack on bagels! N*R

Shrimpcargot

Reviewed: Aug. 2, 2008
Not that you need ANOTHER 5 stars to convince yourself to try this, but I'm giving it,anyway! :) This is wonderful. I used small shrimp and topped with Italian blend cheese and broiled in the oven in my cast iron. A huge hit and a great appetizer to our steak dinner. Thanks, ambi!

Refreshing Summer Orzo Salad

Reviewed: Oct. 1, 2008
Okay, made this this afternoon, made myself not eat it for lunch, and had it with sanzoe's Caramelized Garlic Chicken....very good together! :) I followed the recipe exactly, but for guessing a bit on the capers(cus I only have a huge jar ;), and I didn't have basil feta, so I used plain, I didn't chop my spinach and I used fresh herbs, cus I had them. None of the changes were significant enough to change the taste or texture of the dish, so I still feel fair in rating it high. :) Those herbs cooking with the pine nuts, garlic, pepper and oil smelled SOO good! :) So, this is a very original recipe, and I'm so glad to have tried it! :)

Maple-Bacon Chocolate Chip Cookies

Reviewed: Feb. 1, 2009
Okay, let me first say that the only real issue I had with this recipe didn't involve the bacon! :) It was something like eating a chocolate chip pancake with syrup and a side of bacon. I wasn't put off by it, at all. Just make sure to cook the bacon crisp, crumble and drain well. However, I had to add more flour to this recipe. There isn't a high enough chip/dough ratio as written, to help hold the dough(only I used a mix of white and milk chocolate chips) and my first batch spread so much they LOOKED like the aforementioned pancakes. :) So, I just added another 1/4 cup flour, remixed and refrigerated it for a bit. The rest of the cookies were fine. Even though, as written, these just weren't the right consistency, I'm still giving it a 4 because the flavor which, to be honest, is likely what most folks will question, was good. A very rich cookie with a fun "don't tell them" ingredient. :)

Roast Beef Stuffed Shells

Reviewed: Feb. 4, 2009
Made these for lunch, and they were tasty. I made my own gravy(beef/mushroom), since that's what the submitter orginally intended, but it was removed from the final posting, and I used cojack on top...very good. If I served them for dinner, I'd prolly just add a simple salad, as they are quite rich and filling.

Easy Greek Yogurt Cucumber Sauce

Reviewed: Mar. 28, 2009
This was fantastic for us. We had it with my own recipes for Souvlaki and Greek Fries one night, then I polished off nearly the rest of it with just lightly toasted pita bread the next day. It was even better by the 3rd day when I finished it. :) I grated my cucumber and loved the texture that made, so will probably do that every time. This will be made over and over. Thanks sis! :)

Savory Cheddar Zucchini Muffins

Reviewed: Aug. 31, 2009
Let me start by saying I was somewhat prepared for a problem with this recipe only because of reading about some issues on the exchange...and, had that happened, I would have rated/reviewed the recipe to reflect that, no matter who the submitter was. Now, all that said, they were perfect! Seriously, I can't figure out what went wrong with those who had a problem. I am adamant about making a recipe nearly to the letter of how it's submitted in order to rate it fairly, and this was no different. I followed the recipe exactly other than I added a dash of cayenne and black pepper. There were no issues of saltiness, and they certainly weren't over OR underdone. They were lovely both in taste and texture. I am so glad I made these as a "test". Now, I will be making them again because they disappeared so quickly, this time! :) Oh, some of us did add a lil butter to these, while warm...mmmmmm....! Thank you for the recipe, Pam! :)

Panzanella Panini

Reviewed: Oct. 7, 2009
Made this for a light dinner for myself, and it was delicious. I used smoked Mozzarella, because that's what I had, fresh basil and fresh tomatoes and onions, as directed. I didn't over stuff my sandwich on purpose, because I actually love the taste of the bread, too! :) Wouldn't change a thing, but a lil Parmesan would be good freshly grated over the olive oil just before grilling, I think. I grilled these as I do all my "panini" style sammiches...on my cast iron grill pan, with my bacon press. :) Thanks, Mrs W, for a nice light, but full of flavor, dish! :)

Fried Green Potatoes...not tomatoes

Reviewed: Nov. 1, 2009
Made these for Recipe Swap, and served them with an Apple Dijon Pork Roast I did in the slow cooker...it's a football day, which means snacks all day, so didn't serve anything else with it. Just the roast with it's mushrooms and carrots, and these, topped with a lil sour cream and chives. They were excellent! :) I used 5 pieces of bacon(had exactly that many left over, so used 'em all), and green onions because I had some I wanted to use. So, I did the bacon, added the onion and spinach together(with a touch of butter, just cus I'm southern ;), then the taters seasoned with salt and pepper. I used my cast iron, and that really put a nice crust on these. :) They'd be fantastic for a breakfast or brunch, too. Thanks for the recipe, Lillian! :)

Mediterranean Chicken and Orzo Salad In Red Pepper Cups

Reviewed: Nov. 28, 2009
Made this for the Recipe Swap, flower girl, and it was great. :) I used kalamata olives and my own cherry tomatoes, quartered, cus that's what I had, and a grilled chicken breast left over from the night before.(had been basted while grilling with lime/butter), and I used fresh herbs. :) Made a gorgeous presentation in the peppers, too. Added my photo til you take one of your own! :)

Blackened Salsa Tilapia

Reviewed: Dec. 13, 2009
This was a hit. I made my own blackening blend (VERY hot with cayenne, white, green and black peppercorns, sea salt, basil, thyme, chives, paprika and brown sugar), and used my homemade salsa. I doubled the fish and everything else but the butter...if I make it with 4, I'd prolly be plenty fine with 4T of butter in both the sauce and the pan for the fish...and I LOVE butter! :) My salsa sauce was thick, and the slotted spoon didn't help...I could have thinned it out a bit more, but since the flavor was great, I didn't bother. :) I served it with a chick pea salad and rice, too. :) Thank you for a delicious, easy recipe.

Michelle's Migas

Reviewed: Dec. 13, 2009
Delicious. It was perfect for us for breakfast, as we aren't generally sweet eaters, ever, let alone in the morning. The only change I made was to use a bit of salsa in place of the tomato because I couldn't find any fresh tomatoes I wanted to buy, and ours aren't here, yet! :) Thanks for a very good keeper breakfast recipe! :)
