Baked Potato Soup I

Reviewed: Feb. 1, 2006
This is very good and creamy! A bit too thick for my taste though. I will add some water next time and cut down on the bacon.

thanks for the simple and nice recipe. i used turkey ham and shredded swiss cheese. and used egg white to seal everything together instead of using toothpick. also coated the chicken with eggwhite before sprinkling the crumbs.

Balsamic Glazed Carrots

Reviewed: Jan. 4, 2006
Very nice! i followed others advice on boiling the carrots for awhile. It helps to soften the carrots and allowed the flavor to infuse much easier. 2 thumbs up!

Chocolate Dipped Orange Biscotti

Reviewed: Dec. 30, 2005
it's nice, but not as nice as i assumed. dough was definitely too wet with only 1 cup of flour. you want to put another cup of flour aside in case you need more, and slowly add till the consistency you are looking for. i substituted almond with walnut, it leave the biscottis a funny after taste. not sure if it's due to walnut or the baking powder. esy enough to put together though.

love it! it's so tasty! I stirfried everything and transferred them to a pot to cook for another hour. Omitted the paprika, but it still tasted good.I marinated the beef with salt, pepper and japanese rice wine 3 hours beofre cooking. Teriyaki sauce definitely helped to bring out the nice flavor.

Clark's Quiche

Reviewed: Nov. 29, 2005
Excellent recipe! I made it a couple of time and people never fail to rave about it. I substituted half & half with 2% reduced milk + margarine, but it still turned out tasty. This has become my signature dish now!

Herbed Turkey Breast

Reviewed: Nov. 24, 2005
excellent! I omitted sage and lemon zest, but added some chicken broth. It was great! Set aside some chicken broth for basting when the sauce drys. My 5.3 pounds turkey breat takes 2 hours to cook and we did it without a thermometer! Thanks for the fantastic recipe.

Waldorf Salad II

Reviewed: Nov. 23, 2005
I used very ripe golden delicious that left in the fridge for quite sometime. Also, I used fat free miracle whip, toasted walnuts. didn't follow the amount of nayo suggested in the recipe. I just put miracle whip that's enough to coat all the dry ingredients. very yummy! Thanks Penny for the simple and nice recipe.

Chicken Piccata II

Reviewed: Nov. 23, 2005
I read somewhere that if you dip the pat dried chicken onto flour before dipping it in egg mixture and other coating, it will stick well. I tried it as it works! didn't refigerate the chicken at all after coating. I followed others recommendation to use extra chicken broth, white wine and lemon juice. the lemon juice serves as a thickening agent and could over thicken your sauce if you add too much. I also cut the chicken breast into thin strips. it means a lot more work, but it's easily to keep the leftover since hubby and I can't finish it all.another suggestion, don't toss all the chicken into the sauce if you knew you can't finish it in one meal. keep it in fridge and prepare new sauce when you are ready to eat the leftover. ( This makes sense if you cut the breast into thin strips). I omitted mushroom and antichokes.

Apple Pie I

Reviewed: Nov. 22, 2005
i followed other reviewers recommendations and used granny smith, mix the apples with flour, cinammon and sugar together before assembling in the crust, but it turned out runny. I used golden delicious in the first time and it was ok. somehow i think with granny smith, you have to mix less and add more flour. ( I added only 2 tbsp) will add 4 tbsp of flour next time. Mixing longer seems to draw the moisture out from the apple and cause it runny in the end.

Pan-Fried Steak with Marsala Sauce

Reviewed: Nov. 22, 2005
I think using a good cut is very important. mine doesn't turn out tender and juicy,probably marinating for a long time, i.e overnight will help. also substituted red wine for marsala and had to add cornstarch to thicken. I will try it again using the recommended frank steak.

Oven Roasted Potatoes

Reviewed: Nov. 9, 2005
fantastic recipe! i omitted marjoram and dill weed since i didn't have them on hand, but it still turned out tasteful and crispy! it also has a beautiful presentation. I will omit the red pepper next time because it's too spicy for me. This is an excellent side dish. I ate it with baked parmesan salmon. Delicious! Thanks for the great recipe.

Aussie Chicken

Reviewed: Nov. 8, 2005
my husband loves it though he doesn't like mustard. the sauce went well with chicken and mushroom. I didn't have bacon on hand, so I omitted that. And I sauteed the mushroom before assembling them on chicken. Delicious and easy recipe, even for novice cook.

Classic Tiramisu

Reviewed: Nov. 8, 2005
I halved the recipe and made in 2 separate plastic containers. I added 2 cups of strong espresso as adviced and dipped the ladyfingers into the coffee/kahlua mixture for 8 seconds each. interestingly, they tastes better after refrigerated for 2 days. In fact I find the longer you keep, the better it tastes! I will make this 3 days in advance for my next party.

Simple Lemon Herb Chicken

Reviewed: Nov. 7, 2005
a tasty and healthy dish as the recipe calls for chicken breast and only small amount of oil is required. I marinated the chicken for 30 mins with lemon juice, pepper, salt and dried oregano. Will try to add red pepper flakes to give the dish an extra zest the next time.
