Sourdough Starter

Reviewed: Feb. 15, 2008
This starter is very forgiving! I was worried my home wasnt warm enough for fermentation since it is a cold winter here but it did ok! I put it in the oven with the lioght on for 7 days...feeding 1/3 cup water and 1/3 cup flour every day. I used it to make San Francisco Sourdough on this site and it was a hit!!! It had a great sour taste so i am sure it will only get better. I even gave some starter to my mom!! This makes a lot!

Garlic Cheese Chicken Rollups

Reviewed: Jul. 2, 2007
This was fantastic. Once I pounded the chicken breast, the pieces were pretty big so I only used 2 breats and cut them in half (enough to feed my family of 3). I made my own cream cheese mix with a tablespoon of fresh chopped onion, 4 tsp of minced garlic, and some fresh chives and parsley into 8oz of cream cheese. I slathered this on the chicken breast, rolled and toothpicked and then dipped in butter and breaded. It was delicious!!! I will make it again and again!!

Shrimp and Crab Bisque

Reviewed: Dec. 10, 2007
This was pretty good but I gave it a 4 because I made a few changes. I used all crab meat and used green onion rather than regular. I left out the chicken bouillion, made my roux and then sauted some garlic, the green onions and the crab meat, so the crab could really soak up that flavor. Next I added about half of the 1/2 and half and a TON of paprika--probably 3 Tblsp. Once it began to thicken I added the rest of the half and half and about a cup of sherry instead of wine and 1/2 tsp of white pepper. It was perfect!! Thanks for a yummy recipe!!

Mom's Chicken

Reviewed: Sep. 27, 2010
This was inedible--it was super salty and just tasted strange with the onion mix. I even added some cream cheese to the sauce/juices to try and temper the salt and cut back the onion mix favor to salvage dinner. We love all the ingredients but the flavors didn't meld.

End of Summer Vegetable Casserole

Reviewed: Aug. 12, 2007
This recipe was pretty tasty--I got a ton of compliments. It made a ton too: Enough to feed about 15 people at a picnic. The only change I made was to saute the veggies in minced garlic and I just mixed all the other seasonings in the egg mixture. I gave it 4 stars because I thought it was kind of watery, even if after I drained the excess liquid from the veggies AND patted them dry. Next time I might just try baking the veggies in the casserole instead of sauteing first. Thanks for sharing :)

Caramel Apple Pork Chops

Reviewed: Jan. 3, 2011
Delicious. I did as others suggested and marinated in salt, pepper, minced garlic, apple juice and a teensy bit of EVOO over night. To make it easier I broiled my chops for about 6 mins on each side--nothing worse than a grey chop! I sauteed onions in butter for about 5 mins before adding the brown sugar mix/apple mix and then continued to cook them through in the sauce. I probably quadrupled the sauce because we LOVE sauce. Finally, I cut my chops in to strips and threw in the skillet to soak up some sauce. This made it more like an apple pork stir fry and it WAS fabulous. The whole dinner took less than 30 mins to make. Yum!

Grilled Asparagus

Reviewed: Nov. 28, 2010
Fabulous! I threw the asparagus in a ziploc bag with kosher salt, balsamic vinegar, EVOO and garlic powder. Cooked on 425 degrees for 8 mins, flipped and cooked another 8 mins. Spritzed with a dash of balsamic vinegar to deglaze the dish and served. DEEEEEEEELICIOUS!!!

BBQ Cola Meatballs

Reviewed: Feb. 28, 2007
I always get tons of compliments on this recipe. I have made it 3 times--the first time I missed the ranch dressing package but it was still delicious so I just left it out. Otherwise I make it exactly as listed here and I always give people the link to the recipe!

Italian Tortellini Soup

Reviewed: Dec. 21, 2010
Made just as written. It was quite tasty but missing a bit of zing. I think some ground mild Italian sausage would add the kick it is missing. I added white pepper to my servings and that helped a bit. Very hearty and comforthing! One hint--I cook the tortellini in a separate pot--that helps it from absorbing so much of the broth.

Grilled Romaine Salad

Reviewed: Jul. 12, 2010
This was so simple and so delicious. I rubbed the romaine wiht olive oil and then made a bruschetta topping with plum tomatoes, red onion, basil and balsamic vinegar. We topped the grilled romaine with this and added some fresh grated parm cheese. My mom, dad and husband were hesitant about eating "cooked salad" but raved about it! This is a keeper

Super-Delicious Zuppa Toscana

Reviewed: Jan. 2, 2011
I was SO excited to make this soup because I love the Olive Garden version. This was nothing like it. I followed the directions exactly-only subbing kale for spinach and adding more potatoes (8) and sausage (1.5lbs) because we like a chunky soup and I read reviews that this was thin. I sliced 2 of the potatoes thinner so they could cook down to thicken the soup and the rest I sliced medium thickness so they wouldn't cook away. When the soup was ready I tasted it and it was SO thin and bland. It tasted like red pepper flake-flavored, watery chicken broth. I took about 2 ladle fulls of the soup out (sausage, taters and all)and blended a quick roux with some cornstarch and an extra large baked potato. It was still SO thin and tasteless--the chicken broth flavor was really overwhelming. Finally to salvage dinner (and a lot of leftovers) I added about 2 cups of potato flakes. I added them slowly and whisked to avoid clumping. This thickened the soup up beautifully and really cut the chicken broth taste. I bet after cooling overnight, the leftovers will soak up a lot of the broth so I suggest starting with just one cup of potato flakes so the flavor and thickness doesn't overwhelm and add more the next day if needed. I gave this a 2 stars because as directed it was pretty much unedible. Adding the potato flakes made it 3.5 (had a bit more "mashed potato flavor" than OG's soup) but I bet with some playing around with the potato flakes this could be a 4-5 star recipe.

Chocolate Chip Banana Muffins

Reviewed: Aug. 22, 2010
These are delicious. Mine came out a bit dry but I think that was bc I cut the oil to 1/4 c but didnt replace the other 1/4 c with anything else. Next time i would add 1/4 applesauce or use the whole 1/2 c oil. I used 4 large bananas and cut the sugar to 1/2 cup. My daughter keeps asking for more and more!

Baked Slow Cooker Chicken

Reviewed: Sep. 12, 2007
This was delicious!! The only problem I had was that it fell apart when I took it out of the crockpot but that was because I cooked too long--not the recipe's fault! I prepped my chciken the night before with a dry rub of paprika, rosemary and garlic powder. I poked holes underthe skin, slid some butter and also seasoned under there. I let that marinate all night. The next day I added chopped onions, celery, fresh garlic and another pat of butter in the cavity and added to the crockpot with potatoes, onions and carrots. I didnt add any water. Cooked for 10 hours on low. (Next time I would probably only do 8) I took the chicken out and put under the broiler on low for about 5 minutes. Smelled soooo good and tasted even better!! Served with fresh rolls. Deeeelish!!! Thanks for a great recipe :)

Slow Cooker Chicken and Dumplings

Reviewed: Jul. 2, 2007
I have made this recipe so many times and can't believe I forgot to review it!! I always use 2 cans cream of chicken and 1 can cream of celery. I also add chopped celery, chopped carrots and peas. I leave out the butter and add 1 cup low sodium chicken broth. I usualy add some minced garlic too just because I add garlic to everything! I add one of the packages of raw biscuit dough one hour before serving and cook the other biscuit package as usual--my husband likes to serve this over biscuits but I like the "dumpling style". Delicious and fun to experiment with! I have also made it without biscuits and added potatoes instead. It is in regular rotation in our house spring, summer, fall and winter!!

Sugared Asparagus

Reviewed: Jul. 29, 2011
I have made these twice--once based as written and the second time with my changes. First--as written they are still delicious but an issue I had was the cooking times were WAY too long for the asparagus. I think I cooked mine a total of 4 minutes. Next, I don't think you need SO much chicken broth. It takes forever to reduce and it really takes away from the caramel flavor of the sauce. My changes: I saute the asparagus for 2 minutes in the sugar and butter (and I added some minced garlic). Then I add about 1/4 cup of chicken broth to kind of deglaze the pan and help coat the asparagus. I cook the asparagus for about 2-3 more minutes. I remove the asparagus and cook the sauce to reduce about 5-7 more minutes. Then I pour the rest of the yummy, hot glaze over the veggies, squeeze some fresh lemon over top and serve :D

White Pizza Dip

Reviewed: Jun. 20, 2007
I made exactly as the recipe stated but I found it too runny. It was better after it sat for an hour. Next time I think I would add cream cheese. I agree it also had a grainy texture from the ricotta. I gave it 4 stars because even though I wasn't crazy for it a few people told me it was excellent and there was none leftover! I served with italian bread chunks and bagel chips. Edited 11/12: I made this yesterday for a football party subbing 8oz of cream cheese for the ricotta. It was gone in 15 minutes and I had to whip up another batch!! With that sub I would give this 5 stars!!

Simply Fudgy Brownies

Reviewed: Aug. 16, 2010
08/16/10- I wasn't sure how these would turn out but they were delish! I upped the cocoa to a 1/2 cup and cut the sugar to 1/2 cup. I used semi-sweet morsels and it gave this a richer, dark chocolate flavor. Very tasty buy VERY rich!

Spaghetti Carbonara II

Reviewed: Aug. 12, 2008
I gave this 2 stars because my husband liked it but i was really disappointed. I followed the recipe exactly and the recipe came out bland, greasy and sticky. I even added more olive oil as the recipe suggested. The flavor wasnt bad....there just wasnt ANY flavor at all; despite the bacon and parm cheese it wasnt even salty. I won't be making this again :-\

Easy Olive Martini Chicken

Reviewed: Nov. 17, 2006
Yum!! I doubled the wet ingredients because I like extra sauce and tripled the green olives. It was great with some garlic mashed potatoes.

Roasted Asparagus with Balsamic Vinegar

This is absolutely perfect as is. I can't say anything to describe the deliciousness. One warning though-don't overcook!
