Lobster Bisque

Reviewed: Feb. 25, 2013
This was my first ever attempt at making lobster bisque and am I glad I gave it a try. I only wish I hadn't waited so long. This quick and easy bisque has wonderful flavor and the cayenne pepper was just enough to make it really warm you up inside. I had only a small amount of lobster (about 8 ounces), but followed the recipe proportions, with the exception of the lobster meat. I did substitute lobster base for the chicken broth. I cooked my lobster tail in lightly salted water then added a little "Better Than Broth Lobster base" to taste. I used skim milk which tasted great, those wanting a richer soup could certainly use a higher fat content milk. My husband and son were both looking for seconds which I unfortunately did not have. Will plan on making this again very soon.

Creamy Au Gratin Potatoes

Reviewed: Mar. 11, 2013
I doubled this recipe because I wanted to use up the potatoes I had on hand. So glad I did...my family of four devoured this and I can't wait to nibble on the leftovers tomorrow! When I make this again, I will make the onions slices smaller or chop them (picky kids may not notice smaller pieces). I also added a little parmesean cheese. After making this, I was looking at the unfavorable reviews to see what possibly would make someone not like this dish. My conclusion is that they may not have had the patience to complete the steps according to the recipe (ie. allowing the cheese mixture to thicken on the stove to prevent "curdling"). This is a very good recipe, but one that can't be rushed!
