Sweetened Whipped Cream

Reviewed: Nov. 29, 2011
I chilled my glass measuring cup in the freezer before making this (helped!) and I also did this with my whisk! It took some time but SOO worth the effort and not buying the stuff from the store! I can't wait to make more this winter for homemade hot cocoa and more pumpkin pie!!!

Warm Mushroom Spread

Reviewed: Sep. 23, 2010
My assistant and I used this recipe to celebrate the first day of autumn today in our pre-k class. The kids loved chopping the shrooms but didn't seem to care for their aroma! LOL! Nonetheless, most of them tried it and liked it but we LOVED it! Used a LOT more butter than called for so it was really delish and tres Julia Childs!

I have used this recipe LOTS of times and absolutely LOVE it!! Just the other day I added raspberries after putting the batter into the pan and they were even MORE divine!!! Also added 3 T of cocoa powder just because and only use 1 cup of raw cane sugar and wheat flour. SUPERB recipe!!!

Filet Mignon with Rich Balsamic Glaze

Reviewed: Feb. 15, 2008
This was an AWESOME recipe!!! Thanks to previous reviewers for the "resting" tip. Never heard that before. I also added 1 tsp. of brown sugar which really made the sauce (like suggested). I cooked the steaks in the pan like the recipe said and did add the wine and basalmic to the pan. Was a bit worried b/c the last two reviews said they didn't but it was phenomenal!! I also added pine nuts & will LOVE to use Gorgonzola once I'm not preggie!! WONDERFUL Valentine's dinner. We had it with green beans and roasted red potatoes with rosemary and garlic. DE-LISH!!! Oh! Also made the Parmesan puffs for an appetizer.

Parmesan Puffs

Reviewed: Feb. 15, 2008
I had a go at these for Valentine's Day. I made them for an d'oeuvre and they weren't puffs but more like "cookies". I think it's b/c I added the flour too quickly to the milk/butter mixture resulting in lots of clumping. When I added the eggs I tried to de-clump the dough but I don't think it worked too well. I put in extra parm and also added pine nuts. They were good but I could definitely taste the flour clumps. I will be trying them again b/c of the rave reviews they got! My hubbie liked them too, but I want to LOVE them like everyone else! :0)

Breaded Center Cut Pork Chops

Reviewed: Jan. 13, 2008
I'm giving the actual recipe a 3 but how I did it and thanks to the other reviews I'd give it a 5 instead. I also halved the recipe and STILL had too much egg and flour left. I actually did 1/2 cup flour and 2 eggs and had to dump the rest. I used about 1/2 cup of herb croutons that I crushed with a spoon, and used dry basil instead of the Italian seasoning (all I had) and put in 1/4 lemon juice and some lemon zest instead of the lemon pepper seasoning. I also browned the chops first in a pan but used the other 3/4 of the lemon to cook them in. SO good and very lemony! I made Parmesan mashed potatoes and spinach. My husband also gives my version a 5.

Pumpkin Protein Cookies

Reviewed: Nov. 10, 2007
Tasty breakfast cookies! I used 1 cup fresh pumpkin and added cinnamon & some allspice to that as well, no water or oil. I added about 1/2 tsp of allspice (piment is the name here) and about 1/8 of ground clove in addition to the recommended spices. Did add the flaxseed and used 2 eggs instead of 4 whites. I also had to cook them longer than 5 mins (8-10)but I think it was b/c of the fresh pumpkin being so moist. Very good though! I've already had 3 tonight!! Oh! Also put in walnuts. ***True test of goodness: Husband approved! He is a big health nut and doesn't like/eat anything with too much sugar in it. He LOVED them! Merci!

Honey Baked Chicken II

Reviewed: Nov. 9, 2007
This was quite tasty! I didn't have curry (thought I did) so instead used 1 tsp of paprika and about 1/2 tsp of cayenne pepper. Also did the chopped garlic but used about four cloves. I also made the sauce for two people and had bought four chicken breasts. I baked it w/o foil and it was perfect. The sauce kind of crusted on the top.My husband's opinion? "Mmmmmm! This chicken is so good!" I have to agree!

Cranberry Pork Chops I

Reviewed: Nov. 14, 2005
I thought this was wonderful. I changed the recipe somewhat but it still turned out great! I was a bit nervous it would be too sweet so I cut back the honey to 1tbl and it was perfect. I actually put in 1\4 clove and my husband said it was too much. I loved it! I will put in the 1\8 amount next time. I also used organic apricot jam instead. Very good! I bought thinner chops and made them into "tacos" and stuffed them that way. I used toothpicks to keep them closed. Perfect! I shall use this for Thanksgiving with turkey breasts instead! I served with sweet potato and steamed peas. The leftover sauce from the chops was delice on the potatos. This meal is full of vitamins and other good stuff!
