'Secret' Salad Dressing

Reviewed: May 12, 2010
Very good...a version of French dressing. EVOO is a healthy choice for oil in this recipe; however, the olive taste tends to overpower the other flavors. When using EVOO, be sure to refrigerate for at least several hours to help mesh and mellow the flavor. I will try grapeseed oil or canola next time.

Cinnamon Coffee Cake II

Reviewed: May 4, 2010
I was served this coffee cake recently at a B&B and it was absolutely DELICIOUS. Yum Yum! Can't wait to make it myself! Update 10-2010: I have made this several times now. I prefer to use a bundt pan and use 1 1/2 to 2 times the streusel filling, putting about 1/3 on the bottom of the bundt pan to carmelize during cooking, with the remainder in the middle. Nothing but rave reviews from friends and family. Fantastic recipe!

I added a 4 chopped hard boiled eggs. Used Del Monte mandarins and grapefruit from jars in produce section. Served with fresh baked multigrain bread on the side, and a glass of Prosecco with whole raspberry dropped in. Outstanding!

Cheese and Broccoli Chicken Soup

Reviewed: Mar. 24, 2010
Sauteed sweet onion and several cloves of garlic before adding broth. I used Progresso chicken broth instead of boullion. I also added broccoli stalks that were pulverized in the food processor along with the florets. Used 1/2 mild and 1/2 sharp cheddar. Wow!

Easy Quiche

Reviewed: Mar. 5, 2010
Excellent! I made it the first time in a 8x10 rectagular pan. The second time I used mini muffin cups for more of an appetizer. I added a 1/4 cup extra Bisquick mix to each recipe. Came out great both times. This is a great recipe for customizing ingredients to your taste. And so much easier than making and filling a crust. Delicious and a keeper!

Baklava

Reviewed: Feb. 22, 2010
Great recipe! I doubled the nuts and used a combination of pecans and walnuts. Quadrupled the cinnamon. Halved the butter. Used 1 1/2 times the sugar sauce recipe and cooled it in the fridge. This came out perfect -- just the right amount of gooeyness, but not too much. Felt like a healthier end product and just as delicious.

Absolutely Fabulous Greek/House Dressing

Reviewed: Feb. 20, 2010
WOW! I easily adjusted to make for 10 servings thanks to the web site's customization feature. This is absolutely delicious! I will be serving this dressing on a greek salad and serve with homemade pastitsio and a nice crusty bread this evening.

Pot Roast in Foil

Reviewed: Feb. 20, 2010
Don't use the onion soup mix -yuck. Instead, give the roast (underblade chuch roast) a heavy rub on both sides with garlic powder. Slice fresh onions and put on bottom of pan and then on top of the garlic-rubbed steak. Then pour 1 can of mushroom soup on top. No water required. Cover 13x9 pan tightly with tin foil (no need to wrap the whole thing in tin foil, just the top) and bake as directed. Melt in your mouth good with amazing gravy that has real onions in it. With these changes, it gets five stars.

Great comfort food. I used ground chicken instead of beef and browned the meatballs before adding the sauce. They came out great.

Raspberry Chocolate Torte

Reviewed: Feb. 16, 2010
Excellent cake. Delicious flavor combination and very pretty presentation. A keeper. I'd like to add some raspberry coolis/sauce to each layer next time, in addition to the fresh raspberries.

Ultimate Shrimp Scampi

Reviewed: Feb. 16, 2010
Made for Valentine's Day and it was amazingly delicious! I thought the avocado would be weird, but it worked surprisingly well. YUM! Very elegant dish of fine restaurant quality. I made it exactly as directed and wouldn't change a thing. My SO would like for me to make this with reduced butter next time, but I worry it will impact the flavor. We'll see. This dish is a keeper.

Blue Cheese and Pear Tartlets

Reviewed: Feb. 16, 2010
Very elegant and delicious appetizer! I used 1 1/2 ripe and juicy danjou pears. I also used gorgonzola instead of bleu cheese. Added 1/2 cup of small curd cottage cheese to gorgonzola/cream mixture in order to cut the richness of the gorgonzola. Did not add pepper. Sprinkled tarts with chopped walnuts before baking. After removing from oven, immediately added a drop of honey on top of walnuts. To die for!!!
