Broccoli with Mandarin Oranges

Reviewed: Dec. 16, 2010
I made the dish in an effort to employ a recent harvest of Mandarin Oranges and Romanesco Broccoli. I served this over long grain brown rice. I liked it and plan to make it again. Pro's: Sauce was so delicious that I was sorry there wasn't more of it. Next time I will double the recipe for the sauce. Con's: The oranges. I tried 'em and I just don't prefer warm or cooked oranges. Next time I will either omit the oranges entirely or add them at the very end and not cook them. But the OJ for the sauce was great. I made a few changes, as follows: 1. Used honey instead of Molasses and added garlic like other reviewer suggested. 2. Added 2 sliced green onions and sauteed with garlic in oil to extract garlic flavor. Next time I will add the onion later in the cooking process as to not cook it too long. 3. For the health of it I used EVOO instead of peanut oil and less than the recipe called for. 4. Used Romanesco instead of broccoli and sauteed for a couple of minutes then added 1/2 C of H2O, covered and steamed for about 5 minutes with the oranges like the recipe calls for. 5. Added slivered almonds along with the sesame seeds.

Filet Mignon with Rich Balsamic Glaze

Reviewed: Feb. 16, 2009
No Need to change a thing about this fab recipe. Why try to perfect what's already excellent? It's simple, fast and easy. DH (dear husband) loved it for his V-day dinner. A must for successful cooking is using quality meat, quality balsamic vinegar and quality dry wine. I used a lovely aged reserve Chianti. Buy only premium products it is worth the difference.

Hot or Cold Vegetable Frittata

Reviewed: Feb. 5, 2009
A terrific recipe for a crowd with one small problem. NEVER ANY LEFT OVERS! I have made this dish for many guests. It makes an excellent make-ahead meal leaving the host or hostess time to socialize. I cut up the veggies very small, almost mincing them. When I saute' the veggies, I make sure to cook them long enough producing and extracting as much liquid from the veggies, which is then drained off before adding the veggies to the eggs. If not the excess liquid ends up coming out in the eggs during the baking process. ...not cool! Buon e cibo felice!

Chicken Fettuccini Alfredo

Reviewed: Jan. 26, 2009
A "very good" version of fettucini alfredo probably one of the best recipes I have seen. I didn't give it 5 stars because it did not "wow" me. I will definitely make this again it's a top pick and next time add a splash of white wine to try and get the "wow" factor.

Easy and Delicious Chicken

Reviewed: Oct. 10, 2005
This rich & creamy meal was a hit with me & my family. We all went back for seconds though none of us were, admittedly, hungry! I served it over rice. I served it with a vegetable side dish (that I made up) of petite white corn & finely chopped zucchini in a puree'd tomato base which helped immensely in "cutting" the rich taste of the cream sauce. The side was a good compliment to the wonderful flavor of the chicken. I will definately make this again.

Reviewed: Apr. 1, 2005
I enjoyed this winter squash dish very much. The apples were an unexpectedly wonderful addition. Even my anti-squash family liked it!
