Chicken and Tomato Stew with Arugula and Cannellini

Reviewed: Feb. 4, 2010
This actually turned out to be a pretty tasty dish. Like many of the other reviewers, I tend to doctor recipes (1. because I do not always have what's called for and 2. just because I can.) The meat marinade I used was about 1/4 cup of lemon juice for a double batch (1 medium lemon, juiced). My sherry was wine, so I chose to use the sherry and red wine vinegar. I doubled the red pepper flakes. I used about 4 cloves of garlic, because more really is better, and then omitted the wine from the sauce mixture. I chose to use chicken broth and again the red wine vinegar in place of the sherry. My only bean option was small white beans, and the basil was limited to some frozen cubes of basil. Fresh may have been a bit more flavorful, but it worked out great. I simmered the liquids and the basil, tomatoes and beans for about 10-15 minutes to cook off some of the liquid. Just for good measure, I included 1/4 tsp garlic powder, 1/2 tsp thyme, and 1 tsp red pepper flakes, salt and fresh ground pepper in the simmer. It did taste a bit spicy, but was perfect once everything came together. I did not have arugula on hand, so spinach took its place. It was a great combination, very tasty, a little bit of spice and overall a great weeknight meal that came together fairly quickly.

Best Formula Three-Cheese Fondue

Reviewed: Nov. 18, 2007
I made this for a wine and cheese party. It was perfect!!! Everyone loved its smooth taste. It was an excellent compliment to everything else served without going overboard. I even loved it, and I am not a swiss cheese fan. It went excellently with a dry crusty bread.

Rice Stuffing with Apples, Herbs, and Bacon

Reviewed: Nov. 25, 2006
The instructions for the recipe are not written correctly, omitting the broth that is called for in the ingredients list. The uncooked long grain rice do not soften in the time instructed. I think this would be a great recipe if the long grain were pre-cooked and then mixed into the other ingredients. The flavor was good, the texture was crunchy. No one would eat it at Thanksgiving.

Grandma Johnson's Scones

Reviewed: May 30, 2006
I have tried so many scones recipes and this is the best. I make it sugar free with splenda 1:1 for the sugar and then add mini dark chocolate chips and they are so great!!!

Spiced Sweet Roasted Red Pepper Hummus

Reviewed: Apr. 11, 2004
This recipe is absolutely delicious. It is great on a pita sandwich, on baked pitas, or just on a spoon! It is fairly healthy, and nice and spicy.
