Asparagus Wrapped in Crisp Prosciutto

Reviewed: May 22, 2013
Made this as a side dish on the grill with some cedar plank lemon pepper salmon. oiled the grill plate, and added some sea salt and cracked black pepper to the asparagus. The prosciutto crisped up easily on the grill and the asparagus didn't get mushy. Pretty presentation.

Slammin' Salmon

Reviewed: Aug. 9, 2011
didn't have ginger and didn't notice it missing in this recipe but will add it next time to try. There will definitely be a next time. This was an awesome, moist, flavorful fish. I rolled the salmon in sesame seeds around the edges before grilling, added a nice flavor and texture. served over jasmine rice with a little extra soy and green onions added. yummy!

Southern Pulled Pork

Reviewed: Jul. 18, 2011
made this recipe for a large party using 14 lbs of pork tenderloin and pork roast. made it in two batches in a large crock pot adding water to come up 2/3 of the way in the crock pot. added extra liquid smoke after the first batch for personal preference. meat was so tender it fell apart just pressing on it. added some of the juice back into the meat and left the entire batch plugged into a "keep warm" crock pot all day. Just set different flavored sauces around the meat and people made there own sandwiches to how they prefer. Carribean Jerk and Famous Dave's Devil's Spit sauces went over really well with it. Lots of compliments.

Wonderful Banana Cake

Reviewed: May 17, 2011
I used white cake mix and made it according to the package directions after adding the banana/baking soda combo. Shared it at work and got tons of compliments on the flavor and moistness of this cake. Topped it with cream cheese frosting. I think it would have been great sprinkled with crushed walnuts as well, but didn't have any on hand. So easy, I'll definitely be making this again.

Tangy Poppy Seed Dressing

Reviewed: Jun. 27, 2010
Very quick and easy. Tasted great over a spinach and strawberry salad. I didn't have dijon and substituted a sweet/hot mustard which I really liked.

Crab Linguine

Reviewed: Mar. 11, 2010
This was delicious. Substituted 2 cans of lump crab meat for imitation and added an extra 1/2 cup of italian cheese blend with additional milk to get it the right texture. Also, used a fat-free half and half to save on some of the calories. So good!

Amaretto Sweet and Sour

Reviewed: Jul. 8, 2009
So refreshing! I used to make Amaretto Sours from a recipe out of a bartenders guide that didn't include the O.J. but this version is much better and I'll be using it from now on. Thanks!

Lemony Garlic Shrimp with Pasta

Reviewed: Jul. 7, 2009
This needs a lot more flavor to be a good recipe. As is, there's way too many noodles and not much else. The butter, the wine, even the hot pepper aspect gets lost. I'm sorry I didn't enjoy this as much as others who have tried it, but I couldn't justify any higher rating on something so bland. It takes a lot to get my family to not like shrimp dishes, but this did it.

Hot Bacon Dressing

Reviewed: May 23, 2009
This was so good! I didn't have a few ingredients and had to substitute. I used red pepper for the pimento by adding it with the onion to saute. And I also didn't have cider vinegar and substituted red wine vinegar with a splash of white vinegar and balsamic vinegar in it. It turned out really well even with these changes. Thanks for a great recipe!

Cream Of Chicken Soup

Reviewed: May 16, 2009
My 11 yr. old daughter decided to make this for supper one night. We did alter the recipe a bit. We didn't add the sugar to this recipe, just didn't feel it needed it. The chicken was seasoned as it cooked with some herbs and finely diced onions which we then added to the soup as well. We also added a little bit of dry white wine to the roux for extra flavor. I love the idea of using this recipe as a lower fat/lower sodium cream of chicken in place of canned soups. We did try it just as is and it wasn't bad. I just normally wouldn't eat cream of chicken soup plain. Overall easy recipe and I'll be using it again for a canned soup replacement.

Puff Pastry Salmon

Reviewed: May 16, 2009
These were great! Rolled out the puff pastry on a floured surface and had no trouble getting it to cook up. I didn't have pesto so I made a garlic and herb blend sauce to use in its place and it was great. I think this recipe could be very versatile. My family really enjoyed this and we'll be trying it again with the pesto.

Easter Breakfast Casserole

Reviewed: May 16, 2009
Perfect breakfast casserole. I browned the bacon and crumbled first before adding to the casserole. The directions don't specify, but it turned out well this way. I used Bob Evans Hash Browns that are kept in the refrigerated section of the grocery store, which also made this recipe quicker and easier rather than having soggier thawed hash brown potatoes.

White Chocolate Raspberry Cheesecake

Reviewed: May 16, 2009
This is a delicious cheesecake. Only four stars though because it is one of the most time consuming and messy recipes I've made (and I cook a lot of gourmet foods) and I ended up with a lot of extra "batter". I hated to waste it, but that's what ended up happening. The end product was great though, and I would love to have this again.

Cajun Appetizer Meatballs

Reviewed: May 16, 2009
This was excellent. I actually used these as a main dish by serving them on kaiser rolls. I made a double batch and they were even better the next day.

Chicken Breasts in Caper Cream Sauce

Reviewed: May 16, 2009
Pretty good. The capers weren't well blended into this recipe. I think if they were warmed into the recipe a little longer, maybe added while the chicken was browning it would have been better.
