Coconut Orange Cupcakes

Reviewed: Jan. 26, 2010
We felt these were more like muffins than cupcakes. I did leave the sugar out of the topping but that was the only change to the recipe. We cut the orange segments into smaller pieces, which I would do again. If I make these again I will double the amount of oranges.

Cornbread Salad I

Reviewed: Jan. 26, 2010
We didn't hate this but didn't love it either. Followed recipe exactly. It is kind of dry. When putting it together, it seemed like it HAD to be good--so many good ingred. but turned out just "okay." Won't do again. Sorry.

Smoked Salmon Vodka Cream Sauce

Reviewed: Jan. 18, 2010
Perfect amount for 2 servings. I used evaporated skim milk instead of the cream, worked great. I felt it needed more kick so I added more cayenne and next time I think I'm going to used crushed tomatoes (with spices) in place of the chopped/sauce. I didn't find it "rich and creamy", more tomatoey---just fyi. Still yummy.

Kentucky Bourbon Balls

Reviewed: Jan. 18, 2010
Used pecans (none on top) and followed recipe, adding only a tad more bourbon when mixing the butter and everything together. MUST be served at room temp to appreciate flavors and texture. Never had them before---love 'em! Very easy to make. I ended up w/ about 36 and did not feel like they were small.

Meatball Sandwich

Reviewed: Jan. 6, 2010
These are great but they have way too much bread crumbs. I used a pound and a half of ground chuck and only a half cup of bread crumbs and still needed to add a little milk (almost a quarter cup) just to moisten the mixture. The mixture was quite dry but the end product was great. I made 6 sandwiches (due to the added half pound of meat) and used one jar of sauce and we felt it was the perfect sauce/meat ratio. Will definitely make again.

Tiramisu Toffee Dessert

Reviewed: Jan. 4, 2010
I have had this recipe "in waiting" for a few years and finally made it this weekend. OMG---it is so easy and SO good! I didn't think mixing the whipping cream into the rest of the topping ingred. would work but it does, you just have to beat it for a few minutes (maybe 5?) Excellent! Will definitely make again.

Bacon Wrapped Dates Stuffed with Blue Cheese

Reviewed: Dec. 28, 2009
With a glass of zinfandel---omg. I used parmesan (cut into small chunks) instead of bleu. Will make again and may have to try them almonds too.

Creamy Limoncello

Reviewed: Dec. 28, 2009
This is great. Very easy to make but it does make alot and since it's largely milk, you need to be sure to have some drinkers around!

King Crab Appetizers

Reviewed: Dec. 28, 2009
After reading the reviews I doubled the crab, used the phyllo cups (Yes!), added some "heat" seasoning and squeezed a lemon over them before serving. The lemon is a MUST and they still needed more "oomph". (I used 1/2 t. blackening seasoning and could have at least doubled it.) The creaminess of the filling with the crunch of the phyllo is wonderful, you just need to punch it up a bit. I will make these again. (and probably add some lemon zest to the filling)

Crispy Rosemary Chicken and Fries

Reviewed: Dec. 7, 2009
Used leg quarters---very moist. Cooked the chicken & potatoes on different pans, same amount of time---excellent results. Coated the chicken w/ the oil/herb mixture a couple hours before baking and would do the same (or overnight) next time---no lack of flavor.

We found half the butter spread to be just the right amount. Love 'em.

Roquefort Pear Salad

Reviewed: Nov. 30, 2009
I give this 5 stars but my family, who is slightly less adventurous than myself, didn't love it. I will make it again for others as I thought it was great.

Burgundy Pork Tenderloin

Reviewed: Nov. 17, 2009
After reading the reviews I seared the pork first, sauteed some baby bellas to throw in at the end, used 1 cup each wine and beef broth and omitted the celery. The gravy did not get thick at all but had a great flavor. We thought it was good but guess we prefer our pork tenderloin done on the grill. Served w/ mashed potatoes and roasted asparagus---was a very nice meal.

Roasted Butternut Squash Soup with Apples and Bacon

Reviewed: Oct. 4, 2009
This soup is definitely a labor of love! It's good but IMO, not worth the time and effort. I didn't know when to add the squash (and for all the work, you don't even really taste the squash---there's a ton of flavors going on!). The curry definitely adds something. I will keep looking for a squash soup recipe. sorry

Potato and Vegetable Frittata

Reviewed: Sep. 15, 2009
Don't skimp on the spices! And the broiling step is essential---brown that cheese! I used fresh oregano on top after it came out of the broiler and that added alot. This is very good---good enough that it replaced a previous favorite of ours. I substitued spinach for the zucchini, provolone for the other cheeses, omitted the black olives and added a jalapeno. Don't be afraid to add some strong flavors to this.

Creamy Smoked Salmon Pasta

Reviewed: Sep. 10, 2009
Excellent. In trying to recreate a recipe from a local restaurant, I omitted the mushrooms and added proscuitto. I also thought w/ skim milk and only 2T flour, the sauce might be runny. So, I added a little more flour and used evap skim milk. Guess what? My sauce was too thick. :) Next time I'll follow the recipe exactly. I'm not sure that you really need the parmesan cheese though..... Can't wait to have the leftovers! (even my 5 year old took some to school for lunch today!)

Quinoa and Black Beans

Reviewed: Sep. 9, 2009
I used this as stuffing for some spicy red peppers, topped w/ pepper-jack cheese. I used barley instead of quinoa (yum) and added 2 cans of drained Rotel tomatoes (yum) and only used one can of the beans. Enjoyed by all.

Corn Dog Muffins

Reviewed: Sep. 7, 2009
They stick to the pan! But they're good. After reading the reviews I omitted the sugar, doubled the cheese, used cheap hot dogs and cut them into slices and added a chopped jalapeno to half the batch. All good. I got 24 muffins.

Jo-Ann's Power Bars

Reviewed: Aug. 27, 2009
Made these for the guys at work. Myself and the other health conscious people thought they were quite good. The other guys thought they were terrible. If you like healthy food, you'll like 'em.
