Jen's Heavenly Egg Salad

Reviewed: Jul. 18, 2007
Ok. This is my first review and I've been hesitant to place it because who am I to say...? Anyway, I had to comment on this one. If I'm going to use a recipe, I like to follow it exactly. This endeavor is difficult when the recipe reads, "1/2 lemon, juiced". I juiced half a lemon and, against my better judgement, added the full 3 + tablespoons it yeilded. My dressing was then so watery and SOOO tangy, making a very runny and tart egg salad. I guess I'm still confused why a recipe would call for so much lemon when it already calls for so much (vinegar-based) mayo. That's a lot of acid! I ended up adding 6 MORE eggs. In the extra time I had cooking my second batch of eggs, I ended up adding 3 tablespoons FINELY diced red bell pepper for color and crunch as well as 1 stalk FINELY diced celery stalk, 1 clove of garlic, minced and 1 large basil leaf THINLY sliced. In the end this made a DELICIOUS, not to mention cheap, lunch on whole wheat with baby spinach. Thanks!

Ravioli Dolci (Sweet Ravioli)

Reviewed: Apr. 17, 2008
Okay. I'm rating this recipe a 5 because anyone who tasted them even without knowing how much work went into them, gave them 5 stars. I made them for an Italian themed espresso and cookie night when some friends from where I lived in Padova, Italy were coming to the states to visit. They definately passed as "Italian" and everyone loved how they tasted. I was frustrated with how long they took to make and the fact that the dough was impossible to work with after being out of the fridge for even 5 minutes. I had to keep popping it in the freezer to make it cold enough to be workable. This added to the time-consuming aspect of the recipe. I am going to try it again for a gallery opening event I'm going to tomorrow night, but this time I'll take the advice of other reviewers and make the cuts after the two sheets are layed on top of one another with the filling already in between. Hopefully this will cut down the time and frustration and not take away from the pleasing taste!

Chicken Melt

Reviewed: Apr. 30, 2008
The day prior to making this recipe I had roasted a large whole chicken. I decided to use some of the leftover chicken to make this recipe. I actually still marinated, like called for and then rewarmed the already cooked chicken. It was very very tasty.

Yum!! I used a 3" cutter and they were large hamburger bun size. I would use a smaller cutter for lunch sandwiches.

Black Bean and Salsa Soup

Reviewed: Mar. 29, 2009
We blend only about half the beans and leave the others whole. Our 2-year-old and 8-month-old love to pick out the whole beans and eat them before they finish off the soup. My husband loves this especially. He always uses the leftovers to dip chips in for a midnight snack.

Very yummy. Used bag of 16 soup bean mix. First day had with French bread. Second day was even tastier with corn chips and a sprinkle of crushed red peppers.

Crunchy Rice Casserole

Reviewed: Dec. 1, 2008
I actually thought this was pretty good. It served its purpose of being easy, quick, and tasty. You probably can't call it healthy and it is not gourmet, but it made us happy! I would definately double the ketchup next time. Having used sharp cheddar it was quite somewhat salty and quite savory and could have used the balance of more sweet ketchup.

Moroccan-Style Stuffed Acorn Squash

Reviewed: Sep. 23, 2008
Oh my word, this was amazing. The flavor combinations were perfect! I have been looking for recipes that can double as a vegetarian main dish for myself and a side dish for my husband at the same meal where he eats meat and I may not. This is absolutely perfect for that purpose! He loved it, I loved it, and our 1.5 year old loved it. (Now I'm afraid any other dish I find will pale in comparison.) Thank you!

Awesome Sausage, Apple and Cranberry Stuffing

Reviewed: Oct. 8, 2007
This is amazing! All of the different flavors go together perfectly. I used fresh herbs (as I always try to). I cooked this outside of the bird and after reading other reviews about making sure to add enough/extra broth when cooking outside of the bird so it doesn't dry out, I accidentally added a little too much extra liquid, then overcompensated by overcooking. Even with my mistakes, this was a very, very delicious dish.
