Creamy Avocado-Ranch Dip

Reviewed: Mar. 23, 2011
I made this for the Super Bowl and we all enjoyed it. I served it with lime tortilla chips and some garlic pita chips. Both really added something to the dip. Of course, I also ate it with regular tortilla chips & it was just as good. I also spread some of the leftovers on my turkey sandwich - it was delicious!

Parmesan Potato Soup

Reviewed: Mar. 17, 2011
I thought this soup was fantastic. The Parmesan gave it an extra bit that you usually don't get in other potato soup recipes. The only reason I didn't give this a 5-star was because the bacon in the soup didn't re-heat well. It became soggy and chewy for leftovers.

Caramelized Onion and Horseradish Smashed Potatoes

Reviewed: Mar. 9, 2011
These are definitely worth the calories! They were creamy and delicious. I served them with pork chops and then with a Dijon-shallot chicken cutlet. Fantastic!

Breakfast Upside Down Cake

Reviewed: Mar. 5, 2011
It was a tasty dish, but I felt like it needed something more. It was almost like the potatoes, eggs and cheese didn't meld together correctly.

Black Bean and Salsa Soup

Reviewed: Feb. 16, 2011
We thought this was tasty, but not a stand alone meal - we ate it with a nice salad and bread. I found the low-sodium beans and broth as allrecipes suggested, and I rinsed the beans well. I also used a nice chunky salsa.

Mushroom Pork Chops

Reviewed: Feb. 13, 2011
I thought this was an easy and quick dish. I would definitely make it again. A couple of notes: (1) I browned the beef and then removed it from the pan while I cooked the onion and mushrooms. The pork rested on the plate and when I added it back into the pan, I also poured the juices with it. (2) I used a meat thermometer to monitor the meat. I don't think I had to cook it the entire 20 minutes. I used a boneless chop that dries out faster than a bone-in. I let it go to 155 and it got up to the 160 when I removed it from the heat.

Shrimp Francesca

Reviewed: Feb. 12, 2011
Not great, not bad. I served it over brown rice and there was enough "sauce" to keep it moist. It just wasn't one of my favorites.

Brazilian Fish Stew

Reviewed: Feb. 8, 2011
My husband & I enjoyed this dish. I did marinate my fish overnight which I believe helped add more flavor to the dish.

I really enjoyed this dish. The pancetta went really well with the baby bella mushrooms I used.

Italian Meatball Sandwich Casserole

Reviewed: Mar. 31, 2008
My husband and I loved this recipe and I was able to make it ahead of time and then have him throw it in the oven at the last minute. I did add an egg to the meatballs to make it hold together better, but it was wonderful.

Phyllo Turnovers with Shrimp and Ricotta Filling

Reviewed: Mar. 30, 2008
They were good, but a lot of work. I couldn't get them to look like they were in the pictures so that's why I didn't give them 4 stars. My husband & I loved them, but I would hesitate to make for company because they didn't come out "pretty".
