Spinach Tomato Tortellini

Reviewed: Aug. 23, 2007
I used this sauce recipe over bowties as I'm not a fan of tortellini and it was awesome!! My sauce was a little thin, but I used skim milk and light cream to help with calories/fat. Next time I would add more spinach and and a tiny bit more garlic.****update - it goes great with gnoochi!!

Fresh Broccoli Salad

Reviewed: May 28, 2007
Love it, love it, love it! Everyone at our BBQ loved it and many asked for the recipe. I mixed the mayo/vinegar/sugar with the red onions the night before and let it sit in the fridge overnight. I then added the other ingredients the morning of. This kept the broccoli fresh (not soggy) but helped the onions relax. It tasted perfect!! Just a side note - I added golden raisins and roasted sunflower seeds.

Creole Butter Beans

Reviewed: Dec. 4, 2007
These were great, but not what I was expecting. Being from New Orleans, I was expecting our Butter Beans that have a thick consistency (like Red Beans and Rice). These still tasted great and I served them over rice (made three servings considering my husband eats large portions). I will make again, but I am still on the hunt for a butter beans/rice recipe.

Summer Feta Burger with Gourmet Cheese Spread

Reviewed: May 11, 2008
My husband rated this recipe a 4 without the spread but I rated it a 5+ with the spread. It was awesome! Definitely a different type of burger but perfect for the summer (and a change). We did onion rings as the side dish, but I think potatoe salad would be better.

Sauteed String Beans

Reviewed: Nov. 11, 2008
These were wonderful! I too skipped the marinated onions but they still came out great! I also didn't snap all the beans due to time constraint but I couldn't tell the difference.

Puff Balls

Reviewed: Sep. 19, 2008
My husband has made these for years but being from New Orleans we call them fast beignets and eat them for breakfast. They are wonderful and have made them for many houseguests when we don't have time (or mix) to make real beignets.

Unbelievable Spinach Calzones

Reviewed: Sep. 3, 2007
My husband and I LOVE these calzones!! I was nervous about making them for dinner as my husband is a meat-guy but he really enjoyed them. I added a bit of Italian seasonings and used Pilsbury pizza crust. I brushed the tops of the calzones with melted butter mixed with garlic with gave an extra touch. The recipe made four huge calzones with extra filling. I froze the leftover fillings and then used them later stuffed into pasta shells and topped with spagetti sauce (baked covered about 20 min - made enough for 3 people). This was amazing!!

Too Much Chocolate Cake

Reviewed: Aug. 12, 2008
I followed the directions exactly and I didn't really care for the cake - I was so disappointed after reading the great reviews. It tasted like a doctored up box cake to me and my guests didn't rave about it. Next time I will look for a new chocolate cake recipe.

Becki's Oven Barbecue Chicken

Reviewed: Apr. 29, 2008
We are big fans of BBQ and we didn't really enjoy this recipe. It just tasted like doctored ketchup to us. I even reduced the ketchup, added a smidgen of liquid smoke, and a T of garlic powder. We won't be making this one again.

Perfect Baked Potato

Reviewed: Oct. 4, 2007
This recipe is awesome! Much better than the normal way to cook them without oil/salt. Just one word of caution, I put alum foil on the very bottom of oven (we live in Germany with TINY ovens) and the dripping oil smoked ALOT. I was nervous, but they still turned out awesome.

Raspberry and Almond Shortbread Thumbprints

Reviewed: Sep. 22, 2007
I have made this recipe numerous times over the years and they are amazing. Everyone always raves about them and talks about them months (and even years) later. I follow the recipe exactly except I use strawberry jam due to preferrence. I also use a Pampered chef small cookie scoop to help make them perfectly round. Seriously, this is probably the most popular recipe I have ever made.

World's Best Lasagna

Reviewed: Aug. 25, 2007
This recipe is awesome and is very easy to make. I cut the recipe in half for four people and we still had left overs. The sauce used would be great as a basic spaghetti sauce - I plan on using this recipe a lot in the future. ***Update: This has become my staple spaghetti sauce. I use one can of roasted garlic flavored tomato paste and one regular can. Also, definitely use the sliced mozz cheese, it gives a bettter texture than the shredded. Everyone I have made the lasagna for raves about the dish!!

Rosemary Roasted Pork Tenderloin

Reviewed: Aug. 23, 2007
I thought this recipe was very good, but the rosemary was the only thing I tasted. My husband wasn't a big fan for that reason. I only had dried rosemary which may have been a factor. If you LOVE rosemary than this recipe is for you, if not I would keep looking.

Taqueria Style Tacos - Carne Asada

Reviewed: Jun. 5, 2007
I only used the marinade and then grilled the steak and it turned out great!! My husband raved about it. The only thing I will change next time is I will reduce the amount of soy sauce by about half. The soy taste was overpowering and masked the other seasoning. This will definitely be used over and over again in our house.

Mouse's Macaroni and Cheese

Reviewed: Apr. 3, 2007
I made this recipe while trying to find a staple side dish for BBQ's and I have to say I found it! Everyone loved it. Like others, I sauteed onions and garlic in the butter, used more noodles, used a mexican cheese mix, and half/half instead of milk. I'm not a fan of baked macaroni, but I really enjoyed this one. I will definitely make again!

Eggplant Mixed Grill

Reviewed: Jan. 15, 2009
We used this marinade with our own preference for vegis - eggplant and zucchini. It was wonderful! Will definitely become a staple for grilling!

Mostaccioli Bake

Reviewed: Sep. 23, 2008
This was fantastic!! My husband loved it - it is rare for him to rate anything without meat as 5 stars. I made the following changes: used 16oz pasta, 24 oz spaghetti sauce, used ricotta instead of cottage cheese. I also mixed in 2 tsp garlic, 1tsp basil and some italian seasoning (the kind with crushed red peppers) in the spinach mixture. Without the extra garlic and seasonings it would have been only 4 stars.
