Sausage Soup

Reviewed: Feb. 25, 2010
It's a VERY TASTY soup! But, be aware that if you're not going to consume the entire pot of soup in one sitting, consider separating out the pasta for storage or it will absorb most of the liquid and you'll be left with gigantic mushy pasta and little broth. Would have given 5 stars otherwise. Unfortunatey, I didn't have cabbage so I substituted fresh spinach leaves, added at the last few minutes just to wilt it. This helped maintain the bright green color and was a fine alternative. Satisfying meal.

Spicy Lime Grilled Shrimp

Reviewed: Feb. 14, 2010
Want to see your shrimp disappear? That's what happened to mine when I made this recipe for a family dinner. Based on other reviewers, I did reduce the cajun seasoning (Emeril's essence) to 2 tablespoons and it was a major hit... balanced while adding zing to the table. While I prefer lime, I have also tried this recipe with lemon and it did work. This is super easy to make on the grill when you use skewers! If you can, make extra and you can use it cold on top of a green salad tomorrow...yum.

Creamy Rice Pudding

Reviewed: Nov. 7, 2009
Warning: VERY VERY SWEET! Nice consistency and easy to make but so sweet I couldn't eat it. Because of the ease of the recipe I might try again with much less sugar...maybe 1/2 of what the recipe calls for.

Southwestern Chicken Roulade

Reviewed: Apr. 13, 2008
This was a hit with my teenagers and husband. I substituted crushed corn flakes for the masa harina...FANTASTIC! Loved the cornflake coating. In addition to the salsa, I served with sour cream on the side. The combination of the chicken and the chorizo/cheese filling was nice and balanced. Definitely had leftover filling, I could have made 8 breasts easily. Family already asking me to make this one again.

Greek Pasta and Beef

Reviewed: Dec. 20, 2007
Tasty comfort food. Not the healthiest with all the butter and egg which is the reason I gave it 3 stars instead of 4, but a nice winter meal. I added about 1/2 cup of finely diced carrot to the meat/onion mixture and also sprinkled some chopped fresh spinach leaves before the final sauce layer. The carrot and spinach added some color and extra nutrition and did not change the taste at all. Final note, I found some of the directions a little confusing but worked it out. Good luck.

Prosciutto Wrapped Asparagus

Reviewed: Jul. 28, 2005
Even my kids loved this one! Nice side dish for entertaining. Have also made it without the cheese when in a pinch, but brushed the asparagus with a little olive oil before wrapping. Worked in the oven, and on the grill. Thinner asparagus in most tender...adjust your cook time accordingly if your asparagus is especially thick or thin.
