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! :)

Swedish Vegetable Salad with Shrimp

Reviewed: Jul. 24, 2011
A very different variety of ingredients than we are used to... but, it worked! I didn't use the asparagus, and I used fresh dill, but those are the only differences. Thanks for adding this on my thread, when I asked for summer side dishes/salads. :)

Bellepepper's Orzo and Wild Rice Salad

Reviewed: Jul. 22, 2011
Delicious salad. I made this for lunch and it was finished off with sandwiches for dinner. :) I did use raisins instead of currants, because I hadn't replaced my currants, yet, and I used cashews and pecans rather than almonds, because we aren't really almond fans. Thanks for a great summer recipe, Belle!

Macaroni, Pineapple & Ham Salad

Reviewed: Jul. 20, 2011
Very good and crisp summer lunch salad. :) The changes I made were minor... my own cherry tomatoes, quartered, fresh pineapple I chopped the heck out of and my own Italian style dressing. Oh, and penne instead of macaroni cus I don't have macaroni on hand. Thanks for suggesting this, Jodi! :)

Olive Bar Marinated Veggie Salad

Reviewed: Jul. 18, 2011
Cut this recipe in half and made it for lunch, today... I ate half of it, myself. :) My changes were minimal: I used my own dressing, left out the beans, and used cubed fresh mozzarella rather than the small marinated balls, because that's what I had, and my own ripe tomatoes instead of romas. :) Great, fresh tangy recipe, thanks Saveur!

Rosemary Garlic Mashed Potatoes with Manchego Cheese

Reviewed: Jul. 12, 2011
Yum! :) Okay... I steamed as directed, and used baby reds, purples and yellows. I opted not to peel. For me, the rosemary in these was perfect because it wasn't over powering. I always cook with whole sprigs of that herb, then remove them because biting into a bit of rosemary can ruin a dish for us. The manchego cheese was wonderful. Thanks, Christine.

Nutty Spinach Salad

Reviewed: Jul. 12, 2011
Made this for lunch, today, and it was really good. Light but filling. I don't use ketchup, really, so I did sub a lil tomato sauce and with the spices and flavoring, it was good. I also subbed salt and pepper cashews for the peanuts, per Carousel Lady's okay. :)

K-Dub's Chopped Salad

Reviewed: Jun. 28, 2011
Nice lunch salad... lots of protein without adding egg. I forgot the cheese until after I took the pic, but I did add cojack to it before I ate it! :) And, I added a touch more Dijon, cus I love it. Thanks for the great recipe, KDub...

Amazing 'Pizza' Pork Chops

Reviewed: Jun. 6, 2011
Easy and delicious...as you can see from my photo, I made sandwiches out of them on whole wheat buns. I did use dried Mexican oregano, cus that's really the only kind we like... but, the basil was fresh from the garden. Thanks CNM!

Jan's Chocolate Chip Pound Cake

Reviewed: Aug. 28, 2013
As expected, this was delicious. I made these in a Wilton's mini loaf baking pan and they baked for 30 minutes. I used raw sugar rather than granulated, too. Also, I only had regular sized chips, so, I lightly sprayed them with no stick spray and tossed them with a lil flour before adding them to the batter. As you can see in my pic, the chips didn't sink! :) The flavor of this was great. Not overly sweet or chocolaty which, for us, is a real winner!

Summer Strawberry Buckle

Reviewed: May 28, 2011
Delicious! :) I didn't use cake flour and subbed buttermilk and it did fine, other than I had to bake mine longer... and I swapped the cinnamon and nutmeg amounts for personal taste. Served it just barely warm with vanilla ice cream. :) Thank you, Cyndi!

Lepp's Marathon of Love

Reviewed: Mar. 23, 2011
The great thing about this recipe is, there is always room to add, but try not to leave anything out! It's sometimes tricky to get JUST right, but, when you do, you will always remember it and you will make it again, and again!

My Fresh Cranberries with Orange, Lemon, and Rum

Reviewed: Nov. 27, 2010
This was fantastic. :) I asked for a recommendation for a personal recipe in the Recipe Buzz, and this was one of the few that came up. I picked this one specifically cus of the addition of rum. I followed the recipe exactly other than using half the sugar, and adding 1T of honey. I also chose to not process about 1/4 of the sauce, leaving a fair number of intact berries, for a great texture. Thank you, Saveur, for the recipe!

Apple Streusel Crumb Pie

Reviewed: Sep. 26, 2010
Pie crust is my nemesis. I don't like it, it doesn't like me, so we generally avoid one another....BUT, a request was made for an apple pie. The good news was, the request SPECIFICALLY asked for a "crumby topped" apple pie.(phew, that meant only 1 crust!;) So, I agreed and went a'searching and lookie what I found! The PERFECT answer to the request. Strudel, this was so easy and so delicious. I have nothing to change about the recipe other than letting someone else make my crusts. Oh, and I did slice my apples. Thank you so much for sharing it. :)

Clone of a Pretzel Dip

Reviewed: May 22, 2010
This is just as it should be. I didn't change anything. We ate it with sourdough pretzel nuggets. The kids enjoyed it a lot! Thank you, shorecook.

Felix K.'s 'Don't even try to say these aren't the best you've ever eaten, because they are' Chocolate Chip Cookies

Reviewed: Apr. 19, 2010
This recipe doesn't need another 5 star review, but it deserves one, from us, so here it is. :) These were, indeed, the best chocolate chip cookies I've made. I have always doubled the vanilla in a recipe, but never used this much. What a great flavor they had. As good at that was, though, it is matched by their texture. They were crispy on the outside and nice and gooey inside. I doubled this so won't need to make any for a while, but when I do, it will be this recipe. Thanks for the submission! :)

Rice with Chorizo (Arroz con Chorizo)

Reviewed: Mar. 29, 2010
Picked this up in the Recipe Swap and, after asking Sharebear if it was okay if we added beans, I added black beans to this and used brown rice(taste preference, only, white would be fantastic, too). This is a great "not in the mood" or "don't have time" to cook, recipes, because it's easy, quick and it's so tasty. Thank you, Sharebear! :)

Mom's Incredible Spinach Gratin

Reviewed: Mar. 12, 2010
This is fabulous. Seriously fabulous. I followed the recipe exactly other than using fresh spinach. As rich as this is, it's just crazy good, but, I do think that someone could sub a lower fat milk and just make the roux a lil thicker and still have a fantastic tasting recipe. I just don't want anyone to miss out on this dish by thinking it's too 'fatty' for them...that said, for us, it was great, and we'll make it just as it is! :) thank you for a new way to make a veggie we love... this will be made often.(oh, I baked it in individual dishes, too)

Sunny Gingered Honey Lemon Tea

Reviewed: Mar. 12, 2010
I made this for our Recipe Swap, and it was really good! From a southern girl who doesn't care for sweet tea, but LOVES sun and brewed iced tea, it was a great compromise! A nicely spiced tea with a great citrus bite. I will say, I didn't use the lemon extract, rather I added some zest instead. Somehow, because of the spices, even though this is a great cold, iced tea, it still has a distinct autumn taste...which is just perfect, for us right now!(originally rated 10/09) Thanks for the recipe, Larkspur...and your mama, too...I added my pic, too, until you get your own! ;)

Tuna Macaroni Salad

Reviewed: May 13, 2011
Very basic, easy, tasty salad. This is like tuna salad with pasta, or a cold tuna casserole...either way, it's a nice recipe. I don't buy sweet relish, for personal taste, so I used dill relish, instead. I also added a couple eggs and colby/jack cheese rather than cheddar. Nothing to complain about, here. It delivers as expected. :)
