Baked Asparagus with Balsamic Butter Sauce

Reviewed: Apr. 2, 2007
Plate-lickin' good! No, seriously! I found that thin asparagus only needs to bake for about 10 minutes, and the sauce can be microwaved instead of getting out a pan. I skipped the salt and used low-sodium soy sauce, and it was perfect.

Mozzarella Tomatoes

Reviewed: Mar. 25, 2007
This was a nice breakfast in the morning. I cut the whole dish into individual portions and froze them, then pulled them out for a quick breakfast. Even straight from the freezer, they microwaved in less than 4 minutes. Great when you want something hot, fast, and healthy for breakfast.

Individual Baked Eggs

Reviewed: Mar. 25, 2007
I used the basic idea of this recipe but baked my eggs in ramekins and made Sausage McMuffin-style sandwiches. It turned out great and went together very easily since everything baked in the oven. I melted cheese on english muffins during the last couple minutes of baking. Yum!

Gourmet Mushroom Risotto

Reviewed: Feb. 22, 2007
Very mushroom-y! Would be nice paired with steak. This took longer to cook than the recipe indicated, but was otherwise good. I used twice the wine and cheese. One tip - use quality ingredients. I tried dried mushrooms and butter substitute the first time and it was not good.

Best Black Beans

Reviewed: Feb. 15, 2007
Just okay. Not as flavorful as I hoped, but good mixed in rice for tacos. I added lime juice per other reviews. I'll probably try this again, but next time add more cilantro, garlic, cayenne, and maybe some cumin.

Cheese Fondue

Reviewed: Feb. 14, 2007
Oh my gosh, this was good! I splurged on pricey cheese and it melted beautifully. I made it on the stovetop then transferred to a fondue pot, which I would do again since it's a little easier to control the heat on the stove. This was my first attempt at fondue and I see much more in my future. ;) FYi for anyone who's wondering - the leftovers reheated nicely on the stove the next day.

Roasted Tomato Salsa I

Reviewed: Feb. 13, 2007
Awesome! And it's super-awesome the next day. ;) This is my go-to salsa recipe from now on. I followed it exactly, except I didn't measure the lime juice - just used what I could squeeze out of 1 lime.

Italian Style Pork Chops

Reviewed: Jan. 30, 2007
Mmmmm, yum! But you can cut back on the breading. I used 8 chops, only 1/2 C butter, and only about 1 1/2 C of breading (and I still had extra). I suspect you could skip the butter all together but I haven't tried it. I didn't have enough crackers on hand so I used a combo of crackers and croutons and that worked fine. I baked about 40 minutes, then broiled for about 5 minutes to make the top crispier. If I made it again, I'd bake on a broiler rack and flip halfway through so the bottom sides don't end up soggy in a pool of butter.

Honey Glazed Carrots

Reviewed: Jan. 30, 2007
I was looking for something with more savory and less sweet flavor than your typical glazed carrots, and thought this recipe would do the trick. It was good, but still sweeter than I hoped. It's a convenient recipe because you can throw the whole thing in the oven instead of tending to a boiling pot. I left out the MSG and baked for about 45 minutes at 425 degrees. The carrots came out perfectly roasted, although some of the onions were charred.

Best Ever Split Pea

Reviewed: Jan. 26, 2007
Easy to make but low on flavor. Can be improved by serving with cheese and black pepper sprinkled on top, and crusty bread on the side for dipping. Also, would be better with ham thrown it, as a lot of other reviewers suggested. I picked this recipe because I had everything on hand, but next time I think I'd make the trip to the store and try a recipe with more seasoning.

Pork Chops and Scalloped Potatoes

Reviewed: Jan. 9, 2007
I've made this a few times now. The first time I thought it was missing something. It was bland and a little too salty. The next time I threw in some thyme, garlic powder, and minced onion, and I cut down on the salt. Delish!

Orzo and Rice

Reviewed: Jan. 8, 2007
Waaaaay too bland as written! Potentially easy to improve though. Next time I'd take the other reviewer's advice and add sauteed onion, minced garlic, fresh parsley, Parmesan cheese, slivered almonds, salt, and pepper. When I get around to that, I'll post my own recipe. =)

Exquisite Pizza Sauce

Reviewed: Jan. 8, 2007
Faaaantabulous! One thing I like about this recipe is that you can cut down on sodium by using no-salt-added tomato paste. The only flaw is it's a little sweet, but cutting the honey in half solves that. I added extra red pepper flakes to spice it up a bit more, and I skipped the anchovy paste because I didn't have it on hand (but I'll try it next time). This was also great heated up and used as a dipping sauce for toasted cheesy bread.

Green Beans with Cherry Tomatoes

Reviewed: Jan. 8, 2007
Oh how I love green beans and tomatoes in the summer! This was a new way to try them together and I could have eaten all of it. The fresh basil is a must, and it doesn't hurt to add a little more than what's called for. Also, I used small amount of olive oil instead of the butter to be a little nicer to my heart.

Garlicky Green Beans with Mushrooms

Reviewed: Jan. 8, 2007
I've had this recipe for awhile and it's scrumptious. I especially like it in the summer when green beans are in season. Not something for a first date though - garlic breath is guaranteed! One tip - I always save the cooking liquid when I boil the green beans (or any other veggie), then freeze and use it to make soup stock later.

Microwave Oven Peanut Brittle

Reviewed: Dec. 26, 2006
Great recipe! Who knew peanut brittle could be so easy to make? I love that there's no candy thermometer involved. I brought this to two family gatherings and had requests for the recipe. I also got requests for a repeat performance at the next gathering. This recipe is a keeper!

Thanksgiving Cheese Ball

Reviewed: Dec. 20, 2006
Okay, but not awesome. I like all the ingredients that go in it but somehow the combo wasn't right. 4 dashes of Worchestshire sauce might be too much, at least if your bottle has a slotted opening like mine. The sauce just poured out. One tip for forming the ball - if you spoon the mix onto plastic wrap, then wrap it up and roll, you'll get a ball with no messy hands!

Cranberry Walnut Slaw

Reviewed: Dec. 17, 2006
I was expecting better after reading the previous reviews. The coleslaw was swimming in dressing and all the vinegar made me pucker. I don't think I'll try this again, but if I did I'd cut the dressing in half and add more sugar. Oh, and don't make too far ahead if taking to a party because the whole thing gets a pinkish tinge from the cranberries. Sorry, Twiggs!

Chocolate Chip Cheese Ball

Reviewed: Dec. 15, 2006
I brought this to a party and served with graham crackers and people were hesitant to try it. I think that was because they couldn't quite figure out what it was. I thought it tasted fine, and so did the people I convinced to try it, but I ended up bringing most of it home. Good if your friends are more adventurous than mine!
